Choosing Figs | Neurotic as Hell | A Travel, Lifestyle, and Life List Blog

Trading what now?

1. Trading Spaces was on tonight and that was the first new episode in forever. They, of course, retooled the format…again. Each time they do it it gets worse and worse. They now have completely lost the two key elements: they no longer really focus on getting to know the homeowners, and they no longer show you how easy and great it is is to do all the sucks more and more.

2. Went out tonight with Josh and Nadia to Fridays. They have Parmesan encrusted quesadillas which we got just because it sounded so ridiculous. We loaded Josh up on carbs before the Chicago Marathon. I finally got to give Nadia her birthday present. I basically buy her what I want in powder blue in green… We are too alike. We then went and drooled over stuff in bed bath and beyond.

3. I am sooo glad I didn’t buy the large poster board 🙂

4. I need to wear all polyester when I go rafting, so I went to the sports store and loaded up on anything I could find that was 100% poly and 100% pink 🙂

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
