The Hopester Goes International

For those that know me, you know I'm a close-to-home kind of girl.  Well, all that changes in less than 48 hours.  Hubby and I are hopping on that big giant bird and heading across the pond to the place from where the US of A was born.  Watch out England!  Watch out Scotland!  Because here we come!

We came to the decision to take our vacation abroad on a whim.  I think we surprised each other when each of us said "Let's go!"  No doubt it will be quite the adventure as either one of us has really been anywhere.  So, come Saturday we will be Britain bound for a week and a half.

I look forward to castles abound, the British Museum, trying on the Crown Jewels and embarking on my first whiskey tour.  Not looking forward to the rental car and hubby's driving.....but maybe they sell xantax over-the-counter there???

wish us luck!

Here's to New Beginnings

So. I just read a blog that a friend of mine had started and it inspired me to revisit mine. Then I saw my last post was in .........2008? Really? Can that be true? In all honesty, it could...but I really thought I've written since the Wildcat Frenzy all of us Davidsonians experienced in the 2008 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. But then again....I could be wrong (and I am, more often than not!)

I have decided to give this blogging thing another whirl. Theme? It might help, but 'we don't need no stinking theme!' The theme is me. The theme is a 30 something finding her way again. Things are getting interesting so hopefully I can keep you entertained and maybe help some other 30 somethings out there along the way. You're not alone! And if you are? Head to the Brick and I'll meet you there! We'll partake in a few adult beverages, solve the world's problems and maybe a few of our own along the way.

So, sit back, relax, read and laugh. Make sure you comment because that's what makes this fun. Got a topic you want my take on? Send it my way, but be forewarned. I will tell you what I think, you may get mad, you may think I'm an idiot, and I might make you laugh so hard you'll pee your pants! I've been known to have that effect on people.....
