18a. Organize and downsize "tupperware" collection

This happened while I wasn't looking. My husband went through the tupperware collection a few weeks ago, pitched all the stuff we never used or had no lid or whatever, and reorganized the whole thing so you can actually find things - and both drawers still close. So I'm counting this as done even though I didn't technically do anything, because I'm certainly not going to redo his efforts, and it's not exactly "failed" either. I also doubt it'll need to get done again with the next 1001 days because we simply don't get new tupperware that often, especially now that we don't eat lunchmeat regularly.

51a. 2013 Project

I've decided to make this project my Eurotrip gluebook. Whenever I travel, I picked up assorted pamphlets and guides and when I get home I cut them up and paste them into journal spreads. When I go on longer trips, I take a special journal, set aside just for that trip, and when I get home I do all my gluebooking there, so I have one book for that trip. This book will be for my Eurotrip from this past April. I've already made good progress, as I decided months ago that this would be my 2013 project but forgot to actually blog about it. Hopefully I'll be able to post a "complete" entry soon.

76a. Visit the Holocaust Museum

Date Completed: 21 September 2013

This is a difficult museum to take, but a very important one nonetheless. I'm glad I had two very close friends with me when I went. I did a gluebook spread of the museum, mostly because you can't take pictures inside so this would serve as a reminder of the collection's impact on me. I think what I liked most about this museum was that it was clearly trying to inform more than shock. I don't think I need to go back any time soon, but it's good that I did. Everyone should.

67a. Eat at 10 new-to-me restaurants

Current Progress: 5/10

Sou'Wester - With a name so casual you'd think this would be kind of a dive, but it's actually a fairly upscale restaurant inside the super fancy Mandarin Oriental Hotel in DC. I was there because my friends and I were stranded in the culinary wasteland that is 12th Street and this was pretty much the only thing that Yelp said was open and near by. (Weekend meals in downtown DC can be tricky, as most places are only open Monday through Friday.) Anyway, we went and the burgers were quite tasty, the bread was yummy, and the corn fritters were kind of just weird. Probably not somewhere I'd go again, but it's nice to know it's there. Bonus: across the street is a CVS where I bought a bag of Brite Crawlers. It made my day.

First Watch - I'd never even heard of this apparently national chain of restaurants until my personal trainer encouraged me to go one morning after my workout. She did not lead me astray - the omelet I had was really yummy. Better yet, their motto is, "If eating pancakes for lunch is wrong, then we don't want to be right." That's my kind of place. I'll have to take my husband there sometime.
