4 New Things

I try not to be a party-pooper, but I’m not exactly adventurous. I honestly think I have some type of OCD that requires me to perform the same routine in order to function properly. So when I say I tried 4 new things last weekend, it’s a BIG DEAL. I’m proud of myself, so I’m sharing:
  • I went to Raging Waters and went down a couple of the water slides (normally, I wouldn’t attempt this sort of thing—too dangerous, plus the risk of getting my hair wet).
  • Dustin and I tried a new restaurant and a new type of food—Thai. We usually go to the same places where I know I can get a yummy salad, so it panics me to go somewhere new, but I was able to order my favorite thing—vegetables—so it was ok J
  • I finally got to play a Wii!! I love it so much, and I’m kind of glad we don’t have one because I would seriously be addicted! We went over to my sister’s house to play and I totally kicked ass at the boxing game. It was a really good workout—my arms were sore the next day!
  • I made a tuna noodle casserole on Sunday. I know probably everyone in America has eaten this before, but I think the idea of it grossed my mom out, so we never had it growing up. I made kind of a gourmet version out of Better Homes and Gardens with whole wheat pasta, lemon and dill. Very good!

    Cheers and applause for not being a stick-in-the-mud. (Clap, clap)

This post reminds me so much of myself. I'm often scared of trying new things out. But those all sound like very exciting things. Congrats Emily.

Just wait until next week when you go down some even better slides.
