Wow is it hard catching up on all this blogging! So many wonderful things happened and I want you all to know about all of it.....so for some random fun things keep reading!
A highlight from my trip to Kansas was meeting a blogging friend Jennifer! We met in blogland only to discover that I grew up really close to her! While home for Christmas my mom and I met Jennifer at a Starbucks for knitting fun! It is wonderful when you meet new people and feel like old friends!
This next part is for my dad....while he rarely comments he does read my blog (even with all the knitting content) The hotel where the math conference was in DC served his favorite coffee (it's at the top of my list too) Illy! Yumm! This pic is all for you dad! Dad did make it for me a lot when I was home too and boy did I get spoiled. Maybe I'll break down and buy some for myself too!
Finally, in the spirit of trying new things....I ate real sushi in DC! (as in raw fish, not just cooked things rolled up to look like sushi) One of my conference friends was a missionary in Japan for a few years before doing all this math stuff. She was raving about a sushi place she had found....she said it was the best she had had outside of Japan....I wanted to visit with her....she promised to hold my hand and help introduce me to sushi....I went....we had fun....it was fine! The texture was a little weird....but we ordered plenty of cooked things too, so I didn't go hungry and I got to try something new!
