Good evening, friends!
Pretty good day up in here. I spent the afternoon and evening preparing for two Operation Beautiful presentations. One is in South Carolina (Fort Mill) on Friday, and the second one is on Sunday morning in New York City! It’s going to be an insanely short in-and-out trip.
Confession: New York City kind of scares me. Actually, it scares me a whole lot. The city is so loud, shiny, crowded, and complicated. It’s awesome, but I find it terrifying. Does that make me a wuss?
However, I’m more nervous about my presentation on Friday night because it’s to a group of parents + young girls, and I’ve never presented to children before. It’s a short presentation though so hopefully it will be like ripping off a band-aid (right?).
Dinner was fast and simple. This is my favorite dinner when I’m in a rush:
You must, must, MUST try sweet potatoes and baked beans. It’s truly a wonderful combination.
+ A leftover biscuit.
And dessert was a slice of Pumpkin Loaf:
Speaking of city living, earlier I Skype-chatted with BFF Lauren, who now lives in Singapore for work! Isn’t that crazy? I miss her so much. She says the city is kind of like NYC, but everyone is insanely polite. There is ZERO jaywalking and absolutely no trash on the street. And everyone says “excuse me” when they bump into you on the subway. Oh, and it’s illegal to chew gum.
Lauren got engaged right before she moved to Singapore, so this is the first time I’ve seen the ring! She’s getting married on 9-10-2011 (how cool is that?). I’m going to be a bridesmaid; I can’t wait!
Technology is awesome.
Are you a country kid or a savvy city girl?
