Sink or Swim: 101 in 1001

On the heels of yesterday’s post about needing to pick some goals and jump in… Voila! (Is anyone else annoyed with the new habit of calling it “wahlaa” or “waala” or “walla” ? It’s French, people, like capiche and deja vu and chic!! ((random aside as I was Wiki-ing that voila really is French, and not of another romance language — did you know we’re supposed to use “blond” when referring to a man, and “blonde” when referring to a woman??))…)

Okay but for reals… and without further ado… (not adieu, which would be French)
