My little girlies are up in the tub together, giggling and splashing, so I thought I'd take a few moments to say hello.
I met today with someone from church for my seminary application...things are rolling right along and I'm so excited. I wore my penny loafers last week and think they'll get even more wear come January. I figure I wore penny loafers most days at Whitworth and I did pretty well, so I might as well wear them for seminary!
We had dinner tonight with my sister and her kids. We're both without husbands tonight so we decided to pool resources--her leftovers plus my dessert equaled a pretty yummy meal. We talked a lot about her trip to New York to house hunt later this week. If you think about it, pray that she and Wade would find the area that's just right for their family.
Oh, I probably haven't mentioned before that they're moving to New York. They are. For three years, and then they'll be back. They're super excited and I'm super excited for them. Yes, I'm sad they won't be just down the road for a while, but New York City is a pretty great place to visit, so I'm consoling myself with that.
My tomatoes are doing great--we had fried green tomato BLTs last week (YUM!) and I've been eating tomato sandwiches almost everyday for lunch, which makes me think of my friend Susan. Yesterday I invented a new tomato sandwich that made me have to call her this morning just to tell her all about it (and talk about how we have the same fridge).
The Caprese Sandwich
Everything bagel (preferably from Panera--Emma's certain they're the best)
That's about it. Put it all together and then watch how fast it disappears. The bagel sops up the oil and vinegar and an everything bagel means little bursts of onion and garlic in every bite too. Double yum.
(Don't you love my little artistic splashes of vinegar on my red plastic plate? There's a few on my shirt to match!)
And I just have to say that THERE IS NOTHING ON THE CALENDAR FOR TOMORROW! Yes, I totally meant to yell that. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it.
Later, Gators. (That's for Susan!)
See ya 'round--like a donut. (That's for Aunt Susan and Emma.)
