# 82, 83, 84, 85 - Made Possible by Nou Veau

A couple of months back I was given a "Heather" day by Colin. Between the stress of his wreck and the stress of working 7 days a week I needed a break. So on one of my rare days off Colin made an appointment for me at Nou Veau Salon and Day Spa. I went knowing I would have a day of relaxation and my appointment started at 10 am.

My day contained this package, and man was it WONDERFUL!!! It was truely a full day of relaxation. I left about 4:30 that afternoon. I wish I had all the names of the ladies who helped make my day wonderful!

64. Visit Disney with Ashley

I changed # 64 last year but since I was lacking on updating the blog then it never got updated.
I changed it to a Disney trip with Ashley!! I have a ton of pictures from the trip but they are on my external hard drive so I will have to find it.
Ashley was planning on a trip to Disney this past Christmas but was trying to decide if she would fly or drive and days needed for "travel" ect. So we came up with a plan because of her work schedule and my lack of schedule over Christmas break. I would be the driver and drive through the night and on the way back so Ash could sleep. She let me tag along and stay with her. AND I had my OWN PERSONAL DISNEY GUIDE!!
I linked Ashley's blog above because she did a good job of journalling (is that a word) our trip and has a ton of pictures. They made me smile looking over them.

We had a great Christmas together Celebrating new beginnings and Celebrating the hard year that was behind us and the NEW exciting unknown future that lay ahead for both of us.

# 69 - Museums - World of Coca-Cola - Atlanta, GA

Museum # 1 - World of Coca-Cola - Atlanta, GA

One of the first Museum we went to in Atlanta was the World of Coca-Cola. I was really impressed by the Museum. They had a room full of various advertising from the past years, a few films to watch, a 4D movie, an area to walk through the history of Coca-Cola, as well as an area to watch some Coke being bottled that you get to take home with you when you leave the museum. There was also a drink fountain area with all the varieties of coca-cola products from around the world for you to sample.

Overall it was a great visit, I would recommend getting the City Pass in Atlanta if you have the time. You are able to see 5 places/museums for a great price!

# 62 & # 31 - New Restaurant with a friend

Resturant # 3 - Shrimp Basket - Mobile, AL (#62)

(I also went out with a friend so this also goes with Lunch/Dinner/Dessert with a friend goal! Dara and I had a good meal together and enjoyed the company!) (#31)

VERDICT - Delicious!!!! And not only that it was a great price for the food.

Only complaint - We were both very hungry so we order appetizers to go with our meals, the appetizers took a while to come out and our meals came out right after the appetizers. If we would have known the food was going to come out at the same time I would not have ordered the appetizer and just enjoyed my meal.

# 62 - "new" restaurant - Carrabba's Italian Grill

Restaurant # 2 - (These are in no special order) - Carrabba's Italian Grill - Mobile, AL

VERDICT - It was good and I would think about going back but its nothing I am jumping up and down to go back again.

I was impressed by their cooking area because they had a large oven where you could watch them cook pizzas and such.

I tried to find on the menu online what I ordered but I didn't have any luck. It was a pasta with sauteed shrimp and mushrooms in a buttery sauce. Quite Yummy!

#5 - New Blogs to Follow

5. Find 4 new blogs to follow (4/4)

I am sure I will find many more blogs then the 4 new ones to follow. This will honestly be a on going list.

I think blogs are things that come and go in peoples lives. We can all go without posting for a time then come back to posting again. I know personally I have made a new blog and not kept up with it.

So here's to doing better not only with keeping up with new blogs but doing better with my own blog.


Rebecca Wattier is a very dear friend. We have known each other 12+ years. I worked with her family when I took a mission trip to Uganda 10+ years ago. She has a passion for mission not only locally in Mobile but for the people of Africa where she spent several years with her family. I know I can text her anytime with prayer requests and she will be praying hard for me and with me.

I don't know Jane personally but know her through our old pastors daughter. Jane has a blog going right now where she is cooking through Rose Levy Beranbaum recipe book Rose's Heavenly Cakes. Let me tell you, Jane has made some beautiful cakes from this book that I want to try myself. She tells about her ups and downs as she is making the 99 cakes from this book in 1 year time and blog about her journey.
