Arlington Ward farewells

These farewells at Kimballs are bittersweet.  Godspeed to Utah, you Palmers.  And 4 spoons?  I think they were decoys.  #icecreamgoodbyes #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever #eventhosewhogotbumpedtoanotherwardandstake

Kimballs tonight

Strawberry Kiwi sorbet is less calories than Heath Bar Crunch, right?  And I got a kiddie size.  #myprogram #dessertbeforedinner

It's no joke

People joke that Boston has two seasons: winter and construction.  #itisnojoke #roadclosed #constructioneverywhere

Do you know what fire does to polyester?!?

Father's Day

























Me and my dad.  On our porch in Van Nuys.  Might have been my baptism day.  #anoldiebutagoodie #orinotherwordsaregram #fathersday

I made another dress

Still perfecting the sizing.  And polyester on a really warm day can be sticky.  #ilovetosew #polyesterisforgiving

For Sale by owner

My friend Elisabeth is selling her house which is bittersweet.  They've done a lot of work on the house; they're fixer uppers for sure.  #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever

Why am I sewing myself a dress at 1:00am?!?

Jasper v. The Kimballs Special

He asked the server if he got to pick his own flavors.  LOL.  #overheardatkimballs

The Swensens


It was so fun having the Swensens over tonight and going to Kimballs  #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever #awalumsummervisitors2017

I have problems

This is what no self control with a splash of Nutella looks like.  #greekdonuts

My coworker Mary

























My coworker Mary celebrated her 80th birthday traveling around the world for 80 days -- literally -- and is back and I've been asking her about her trip.  I'm so envious!  #sheaskedwhyiwastakingherphoto #caughtnotsmiling #maryoninsta

MicroCenter

I bought a new phone and needed a case and screen protector for it.  One of the IT guys at work tipped me off that MicroCenter will match Amazon prices.  It was worth the hassle to get there tonight.  The case was $22.99 and the screen protector was $9.99.  I saved $37.00!  #bam #ipaidfullpriceforthepepsi
