playing catch-up

i realized this weekend i haven’t posted anything here in 2 weeks! i was in my own world in florida and new orleans–so much so that i actually missed one of my flights. (the story is too embarrassing to share.) the trip was exactly what  i needed: the perfect balance of conference presentation time with a heavy dose of down time and lots of sun. i loved new orleans. here are some of my favorite highlights:

*drinking (too many) frozen margaritas pool-side (post presentation #1) with my fun and fabulous advisor:

*not wearing enough sun block and getting scorched:

*working on my second comp exam in my new orleans “office” (post presentation #2):

…a.k.a. poolside office:

*eating new orleans dirty rice:

*and gator jerky:
(heads-up: i got down one little bite. it taste like chicken. you’re missing nothing.)

*eating very sweet pecan pralines from the French Quarter:

*loving how the southern humidity made my natural curls come back:

*watching new orleans sunsets from hotel rooftops:

*getting this picture from C, who was packing to meet me back in Florida:

*spending the day with C at Crescent Beach and swimming in the ocean:

i’m having a really hard time with Rochester being cold. it snowed today. C and i discussed flying back to Florida for another week and working remotely. if you don’t hear from us, we might have taken flight.
