We had a very successful and lucrative YW Girls Camp fundraiser tonight. We sold ice cream sundaes with ice cream from Kimball Farm and had an auction. Cami Jones was a fantastic auctioneer! We had a great turnout and people were extremely generous. I'm exhausted but so pleased with how it went. #arlingtonwardyoungwomen #arlingtonwardfriendsaregenerous #youngwomen #weareicecreameatingmormons
GetFit@MIT is over and our team THE MATT DAMON DIET (I wonder who thought of that name?!?) was the Grand Champion Team! We were chosen randomly and we each get a $100 Amazon gift card. And next week we will do a group photo wearing our green t-shirts. We're trying to get a cardboard cutout of Matt Damon for our photo. #MIT
I decided that when I got released from being the Relief Society President I was going to make myself a quilt--to prove that I had more free time. It's been over two years (and it has been on my to-do list every single day!) and I FINALLY started it tonight! I'm using fabric from @thimbleblossoms and a pattern from a quilt I saw on the wall at Just Sew in Highland, UT last August. I'm really motivated to finish it and I'll tell you why soon. #ilovequilts #ilovetosew #21squaresdone98togo
I was invited to a fashion show tonight put on by the Belmont 1st/2nd young women. The dresses were as lovely as the girls wearing them. #pardontheterriblelightinginthechurch #youngwomen #lds #anythingbutthegymtonight
I just walked into Lexington Center to return some library books (and get exercise minutes for GetFit@MIT) and passed a woman walking a dog. I was slightly annoyed because her dog was getting close to me when she happily said, "Did you see the moon?!?" I quickly said, "Yep" and kept walking. A few minutes later I remembered that my mom loved the moon and often asked me (over the phone and in person) if I had seen the moon. #pattonmemories
My friend Carolyn reminded me the other day that her cousin from Inkom, Idaho was running the Boston Marathon. I asked if they would like to come for dinner (and I was OK with 11 guests)! It was a treat to have them over after church. #cookingforacrowd #moreisbetter #fracturedtacosfruitsaladandmintbrownieswereonthemenu #anycousinofcarolynisafriendofmine
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.
