it's about time...

To bring this blog back to life!  I can't believe it's been so long.  So much has happened since the last post... Manager's Meeting at the Gorilla, Family Beach Vacations, time with family at the Gorilla, etc.

Why start blogging again now?  I'm getting ready to embark on a journey of awesomeness...we are headed to South Africa for one of those probably once in a life time opportunities... and in addition to some hopefully incredible animal photos, I'd like to take you on my personal, possibly scary, culinary journey.  (if we have internet)

We'll be staying at the Wild Wildebeest Lodge the entire visit.  This lodge looks amazing, however, I'm a little nervous for a couple of reasons.

Reason 1:  We will be dining on what is "harvested!"  Kudu, Springbok, Warthog, etc.  (excuse me, could I please have some simple chicken or pork or even some plain ol' ground beef...from a cow that says "MOO".)

Reason 2:  Not a single mention of any sort of spa treatment what-so-ever at this lodge.  A lodge located in the absolute middle of what looks like nowhere!  How is a girl suppose to survive in S. Africa without a spa?  In the middle of nowhere?  (ok, I'm breathing... deep cleansing breaths. One, two, three...)  (ha ha)

I really am looking forward to this trip but will admit I'm a little anxious as to what awaits us.  I hope to be posting pictures of what is on the dinner plates along my review.  Disclaimer:  While I'm planning on tasting things, I reserve the right to not taste everything! 

Thanks for stopping by after all this time!  I appreciate you bunches!
