We're Here!!!!!!!

Sunday, August 14, 2011

And oh what a long journey it was.  A whole 1 hour 54 minute flight from Houston.  (So much for me getting Elite status on Continental this assignment!)

What I have seen so far – I LOVE!

Love the neighborhood – I can walk to the grocery store! And there are a bi-gillion restaurants.  Not that I really need to partake in any rich food dining after our farewell tour of Old Town Alexandria – but it is good to know that when I’m ready to indulge again that craving can be satisfied blocks from my front door. 

And speaking of my front door – I love our new pad!  I (well we) have an Oprah closet - the size of our old bedroom in Old Town! (Yes, this is my lead in when I talk about our apartment, when I eventually post a picture you will understand why!) I told D that if our next place doesn’t have a walk in closet that rivals Oprah’s then I will have to stay in Guadalajara!  The only downfall that I see is that the closet didn’t come with her signature red bottomed shoes. I would ask D for a pair, but I think if I did he would just take a red Sharpie to a pair of mine and say voila!  Hey, a girl can dream right?

Okay, back to the apartment.  Aside from the closet, I’m in love with the kitchen. I can hardly wait for all of our kitchen goodies to get here so I can finally use my Le Creuset pots on a gas range - just as the cooking gods intended.  As usual, taste-testers are always welcome!

Pictures and more to come soon.  Hasta luego!  (I know, my Spanish rocks!!!!)
