76. Tip someone 100% of the bill

76. Tip someone 100% of the bill

There have been a couple of times over the last year that Colin and I have tipped for our server 100% of the bill at a restaurants. We don't leave higher tips to be recognized for it. It is typically when the server is good, personable and it just feels right. We did this one time at Olive Garden. (95% of the time we try to tip in cash as well. That way our server can have their tip right then and don't have to wait for it.) The server ended up catching us as we headed out the door. She asked us if we were sure about what we left her. We told her yes and to have a good day. She told us thank you repeatedly but also told us she had just come into work and had been having a bad day and what we did for her just made her day. Makes me smile rethinking about it now!

46. NFL Game - Saints Game

46. Go to an NFL game

On Monday November 24, 2014, we got on our Saints clothes and headed into NOLA for the Ravens vs Saints game.

We had to go extra early. You see getting accessible seats for the Saints game is an interesting challenge. You have to buy any tickets and then the day of the game you have to wait in line to try (and I seriously mean TRY) to exchange them for accessible seats. They can't guarantee you seats.

Colin was able to finally find a nice lady in the ticket office who told us to make sure we get into her line when we came to exchange tickets and she would "see what she could do for us". She did great!

After we waited in line for an hour, and got our tickets exchanged for accessible seats on the plaza we ended up on the 100 level right on the 50 yard line!

We are one happy couple! (This was at halftime.)

Even though the Saints lost 34-27 we still had a good time and were excited we got to go to the game!

38. biographies - American Wife

One of my favorite ways to "read" a book is through audio books. No its not quite the same has holding a book in my hand but I am able to do other things like cook, clean dishes, laundry, or be crafty all while "reading" a book.

By "reading" through audiobooks, and thanks to eAudiobooks from the library I was able to read American Wife by Taya Kyle. After watching American Sniper is was interesting hearing the story from Taya's side.

36. The Longest Ride - Fiction Book

36. Read 5 fiction books

If you know me you know I LOVE Nicholas Sparks and all of his books. His books typically come out around my birthday so I consider it a birthday present. Not really, but one can think that way!

2013 brought The Longest Ride and it hits right at the top of my list of favorites. And of course, when the movie came out last year Colin and I went to see it. AND the movie is probably also at the top of the favorite lists.

39. Broadway in Atlanta Cinderella

39. Go to a play on Broadway

Broadway in Atlanta brought several good shows this season. We bought tickets to see several of the shows.

Our first Broadway in Atlanta show was Cinderella. Even though we had seen this one in NYC for my 30th birthday it was fun watching it again.

Atlanta Broadway is hosted at the Fox Theatre. It was fun seeing how it was the same show as NYC but different because it was a completely different set of cast members!

40. Alice in Wonderland & Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

40. Go to plays not on Broadway

2015 brought on some fun plays at a local playhouse where my family lives.

My baby sister, D'Lynn, was the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland. She was AMAZING!

Earlier in 2015, we had gone to see Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (selfie with D (the mad hatter) with my parents behind us).

And Selfie with Colin at Seven Brides.

In this play was my older younger brother. He was one of the townsmen who had is girl kidnapped!
