The Laughmans brought the chaos

I had the Laughmans over for dinner tonight.  They brought chaos and a fruit salad.  I had the same menu as last Sunday (meat loaf, mashed potatoes, corn, lemonade) but added pumpkin squares for dessert.  I love the Laughmans and am glad they are back in the AW.  #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever

I found these when I got home tonight



Why not try Joanne Chang's favorite thing to bake?  Flour is just two blocks down the street.  #umyum

I hate the day that family leaves

Public Lecture at Harvard

I went to a really cool public lecture at Harvard tonight: The Science of Sugar with Joanne Chang from Flour bakery.  She was so interesting and engaging and delightful and we got some Italian meringue and a sugar cookie (yum).  #ilovetobakelikejoannechang

Chuck in Maine

The church is the same everywhere

Today was the Primary program with 9 children in a branch in Maine.  It was wonderful.  And so nice to be greeted at the door by friendly members. #iammormon #LDS #epramblesaroundnewenglandandgoestochurch2017

Non-descript McDonalds

They must have strict rules in Freeport, ME.  They have $1 sodas though!  #epramblesaroundnewengland2017

I got the harvest bowl which is kinda healthy.  And I didn't know the lemonade had no sugar in it (so got a refund).  #sweetgreen #healthydinner #istherekaleinmyteeth

Grief eating?  I'm a mile from the mall might as well go to Chick Fil A?  It's no fun fixing dinner for one?  Whatever it is, this is dinner.  #chickfila

Now IS the time

Emily McDowell makes the best cards.  I've probably bought 40 of these (#fanfavorite).  I wish I could send one to every person affected by the mass shooting in Las Vegas today.  And I disagree with the White House.  NOW is the time to talk about gun control because until we do the mass shootings won't stop.  #tendertimes #prayersforLasVegas #epspeaksup

Chocolate Chip cookies

When I want chocolate chip cookies I want them NOW.  #amirightoramiright I decided to try the copycat Doubletree Hotel Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe from Modern Honey.  They have a minimum chill time of 1-2 hours and she recommends 24-48 hours.  OK.  Let's start the timer.  #patienceisavirtue #iwillbebakingatmidnighttomorrownight #ihopetheyaregood


Interested in seeing condo photos that aren't of my living room?  These are of the landing after you go up the stairs from the entry.  My place is 5 levels.  The circular stairs go to my office/full bath/bedroom. The other stairs go up to the kitchen/living room.  The tall secretary is from my Patton grandparents and the desk is from my Pitchforth grandparents.  The chalkboard is from MIT (my friend Tadd Truscott saw it in a hallway and got it for me before I worked there).  #ilovewhereilive #ihave12typewritersinmyapartment #epcondo2017
I love having new families over for Sunday dinner (this is three new families minus a traveling husband).  #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever #fracturedtacos
