I had the sisters over for dinner tonight. Pizza. That I picked up on my way home from work. They asked me about my mission plan. #oyvey #dontgotone #nohomemademealnomissionplan #iammormon #arlingtonwardsistersareforever #whydidimakethisblackandwhite
11 attendees and lots of fancy, delicious cookies. My tin of gingerbread cookies was emptied out. #braggypatton I made a plate for myself and for my good friends who are dealing with some health challenges. Being in Shaunna's beautiful home was nice. Let's do this again next year! #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever #arlingtonwardcookieswapsareforever
My friend Shaunna and I have hosted a Christmas cookie swap for a few years and it's tomorrow night so I'm baking more Finnish gingerbread cookies. #cantstopbakinggingerbreadcookies #ilovetobake #madeatmidnight
Every few weeks I leave cookies for my next door neighbor. Last night I left him 2 big slabs of chocolate cake and this note was by his door this morning. #ibethehadcakeforbreakfast #dontbejealousofmycarpet
I met Colton and his mom Labor Day weekend in Rhinebeck, NY and since then he was diagnosed with a brain tumor, had surgery, and is in Boston for six weeks of proton beam treatment. Colton and his mom came over for dinner tonight. I made this elephant for him; his favorite color is purple.
I'm hosting Alistair Hilton tonight who is in town for an interview at a certain medical school in Boston. I met Alistair the day he was born and his family is one of my Arlington Ward favorites. Funny story. When Alistair was almost 2 and his brother Conor was 4 I watched them overnight while Bruce and Mariann went to the DC Temple or somewhere. I woke up in the morning and the two boys were standing right next to my bed holding a box of cereal. Maybe they couldn't reach the bowls! It's a favorite Hilton memory. #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever #thethinker #thefuturedoctorhilton
I was born and raised in Van Nuys, California. I moved to Boston sight-unseen and have loved living in New England since that day when I said, "this apartment is OLD". My hobbies are antiquing, reading books and magazines (bring back Blueprint and Domino please), sewing, quilting, sightseeing, watching movies, and photography. I love the color red and have a retro red refrigerator (and kitchen aid mixer and ice cream maker and toaster and...) to prove it! I live in a converted high school and love decorating my loft condo (w/ 18 foot ceilings) that was formerly the auditorium. I have 3 brothers, 11 nieces and nephews, and a bus fleet of friends.
