Sweet Betty

I'm helping my 89 year old friend Betty Manderino with her life history.  We had our first recording session tonight.  I found a transcription app that is going to make this pretty easy.  I love hearing all her stories.  She has had a wonderful life.  I consider her the lovely matron of the Arlington Ward.

A new old table

For a few years I've been wanting a bigger older dining room table.  I have an IKEA table but when you add food, plates and people, it felt like a kiddie table.  Then there's the issue of my small car.  So I invited my minivan mom friend to go antiquing today and I gave her gas money and bought her lunch and I found a table at a really cool antique shop in NH (our 3rd stop).  We lifted it right into her van.  I think it looks pretty good with the mis-matched chairs that I've been collecting.  I'm really excited about this new addition to my condo.  #iheartantiquing

Cobblestone Quilts

I happened upon Cobblestone Quilts this morning while out antiquing (we were stopped at a light and I looked over and saw the sign!).  My friend and I enjoyed their awesome selection of fabric.  I'm very partial to reproduction fabric and they had a big selection.  I'll be going back to Cobblestone Quilts.

Cereal for life

Tonight I visited a new family in the ward and noticed all these boxes of cereal on top of their refrigerator.  They have 4 little boys under 3 1/2 (including a set of twins)!
