First full day back in SoCal! Still not sure how I feel about being back… But some fun was had today : )
I spent the morning with the twin at the mall. We asked about jobs at Paper Source, fogged up the glass of Anthropologie, bought chocolates at Godiva, got free samples at See’s, and decorated cookies at William’s-Sonoma after I dropped off my application.
Then is was time to head home for our cousin’s baby’s first birthday! It was really fun to hang out with everyone, play with the baby, and eat tasty food and cake.
After the party, the twin and I headed home to make rolls for a dinner we were going to for the men’s quartet singing on Sunday. We decided to check out an open house up the road first. The house was super weird and huge with small rooms. This beautiful thing was parked in front. Love it.
We made delicious clover rolls and I made this pretty braided loaf with some of the extra.
Dinner was delicious! Tri-tip and chicken on the bbq, beans, salad with home-grown cucumbers, and our tasty rolls with Linn’s jam. Dessert was a friend’s home-made strawberry-rhubarb pie with ice cream. So good!
We ladies (except our pianist friend) sat around and chatted while the men practiced. I also painted the twin’s nails a lovely hot pinkish-purple with white flowers and polka dots.
All in all a good first day. Tomorrow the real work begins.
