Excitement

I've been really excited lately.

Not about any one thing in particular, but about a lot of things.

I'm excited to move in to my new condo once the bathroom (and painting) is finished. I'm excited to have my very own kitchen.

I'm excited about the trip to Las Vegas we're taking. We leave on Wednesday! I can't wait to buy new gadgets and utensils and cookwear to stock my new kitchen. I'm especially anxious to get to the Williams-Sonoma outlet in the Prim Outlet Mall. Last time I was there, I bought a gorgeous large royal blue serving bowl by Emile Henry - for $5 (regular retail $62!).

I'm excited to cook meals for myself and Patrick. I'm excited for Meatless Mondays! Don't get me wrong, I love bacon and steak just as much as the next small-town girl, but after nearly a year of eating nothing but meat-and-potatoes kind of meals, it will be nice to at least have the option of something lighter. Something more exotic, and with less heavy cream... (Seriously, I have never seen anyone go through heavy cream like Patrick's grandmother. I'm pretty sure she goes through more than a gallon a month, and that's not including the stuff she whips to put on dessert a couple times a week!)

I'm excited to start skating after the long summer break, and I'm excited to start bowling with Patrick and our couple friends. It's something we can do together to spend time together without being stuck at home or spending lots of money. And, maybe we'll make new friends too, since Patrick's only ever bowled in youth leagues until this year.

Lots of exciting things are happening, I just hope life continues on this way for a while, with lots for me to look forward to!

P.S. The cookie comparison study will be starting once we are back from Vegas, probably in early October. Any locals (Edmonton and Area) that are interested should leave me a comment!
