New Blogger interface

Well.  Another Google update to learn.  I....mostly like the new blogger interface.  Except that it just ate my latest post. 


(Although if you're going to keep fussing with things, can't you please make Google docs a little better?  Like, I still lose my formatting from Excel & PowerPoint.  Please make that better)

Travel Essentials

Travel Essentials by emilylarene

 I have great appreciation for ladies & gentlemen who travel in high style.  I prefer to opt for comfort but still like to rely on classic pieces to keep it presentable.  Flying home last night, I wore my favorite new yoga pants, a borrowed pink button up, a new straw hat, & super comfy boat shoes.  As always, I had my monogrammed LL Bean tote bag, filled with snacks packed by my mama & a great new book.  I may be the last person ever to read The Hunger Games, but whatever.  It was absolutely fantastic!  I read the entire book over my 2 flights back to New Orleans.

I flew SouthWest, & had a wonderful experience with them, yet again.  Their customer service is truly extraordinary, polite, kind, & welcoming staff.  And BONUS - I had extremely empty flights both ways & was fortunate enough to have an entire row all to myself each flight. 

Anyone else have travel tips & essentials to share?

Tulips for Spring Break

 For the 2nd week of my spring break (because, yes, Tulane's business school is THAT awesome & gives us 2 full weeks of spring break!) I spent time with my parents at their new home in the country.  My mama doesn't really think it's in the country, but I do, so I call it the country house.  We had such a lovely visit, full of sitting by the fire, doing yoga, meeting new friends, cooking, lots of bubble baths, & doing homework with my papa. 

Happy Spring Break y'all!  Now, back to work.
