1. I finally found out what beer I like. I love porters. I always felt like Julia Roberts from Runaway Bride with the eggs. I always ordered what Sam was having. I knew I liked darker beers, but I never would remember the ones I like best. So now I know.
2. I've been so stagnant with my skiing it was driving me nuts. I knew what I needed to do, I just couldn't figure it out. Sam's lovely tip of reaching out with my poles helped me to finally be able to ski bumps well. I am now faster than a snail's pace on the bumps. This was huge, I have been skiing at the same level since I lived in Colorado 3 years ago, I just couldn't get any better. We had a delightful sunny Saturday of skiing.3. I found the greatest knitting tool at a local sewing store. They are the Denise Interchangeable Knitting Needles. I've been enjoying knitting, but I'm annoyed when I have to buy a new set of circular needles for each project. It can get spendy, and quite frustrating if I have the right needle, but because of my gauge I need the next needle size up. So this little kit is a full set of every possible combination of knitting needles you can imagine. It has interchangeable parts. It comes in a nice portable case. And you know me, being the cheap skate that I am, I was able to use a 40% off coupon because my local store accepts competitors coupons. So I am a happy knitting camper. I no longer have to stash needles. I have them all at my fingertips with this handy kit. So cool!
4. I am no longer going to pretend that I care about what I eat. I'm not going to say, oh I better not have that. No, I am going to enjoy the fact that I'm 25. One day (not too far away) my metabolism won't be working with me so well, and I am going to think that I was crazy for ever saying I was getting fat or thinking that. I am going to try to be healthy, but if I get a crazy yummy fattening coffee drink I will always say yes to the whipped cream and not feel guilty. I am thankful God made me 6'1". I can eat a lot of food, if I were 5'1" I would be a fatty!
