#12: Do Something Out of Character

If you haven’t heard or seen already, about 2 weeks ago, there was a construction accident in my condo building and my front entry way and half of my kitchen got flooded. Because of this, I decided to take a last minute trip to visit my parents in Phoenix to alleviate my frustration at the situation. I literally booked my flight the day  before I flew out of Minneapolis. Why is this something out of character for me? See below.


If you’re not familiar with my type A ‘planning ‘personality, let me familiarize yourself with how I work. I plan. Like everything. Seriously. I have morning and night routines that I try to follow. I have a weekly and monthly calendar in my condo that I keep up to date as well as planners for both the meals that I make and my current workout routine. I could go on and on, but I think you get my point. So, for me, going on this spur of the moment trip was very out of character. However, I made the most of it.


Phoenix/Arizona is one of my all time favorite places (I wouldn’t be surprised if you see me move here in the future) to visit and now that my parents live there, it’s super easy to plan a weekend trip there. We hung out by the pool, went biking, hiking, and, of course, ate tacos! Officially a successful unexpected weekend for me!
