Complete this sentence: I’m looking forward to….

Going to dinner with our really good friends at the end of the month.  We’ve got a lot of catching up to do – holiday stories and whatnot – and evenings with sista-friend and Big D are always a blast.

What is your favorite comfort snack food?

Everything’s all topsy turvy these days.  For years this was a no brainer question: chips, salsa, and queso were my go to comfort food, but I’ve just realized I haven’t eaten these since sometime in November.  This sort of hiatus would have been unthinkable just a few months ago.  Now I guess I’d have to say roasted and salted almonds.  They’re oddly delicious and satisfying.

What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?

My first job with a W2 was at Baskin Robins.  I worked there one summer when I was in middle school, and it pretty much started my love affair with ice cream.  Not the eating part – that was a lifelong thing – but it was my first experience with serving ice cream.  I’m pretty sure it’s physiologically impossible for someone to be ill tempered when you’re handing them a delicious cone.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

There’s nothing quite like hanging out in the family room, listening to your kids have a blast with their friends while playing pool.  Music blasting, raucous laughter, jokes lobbed back and forth…it’s listening to pure, unedited joy, and that’s inspiring.
