House guest

One of my dear friends from college is staying with us for a few days while she goes to a conference in NYC. She is wonderful, obviously, but I didn't realize how much I would love having her around.

Last night, I made a pretty unsuccessful pork shoulder for dinner. I braised it in apple cider with apples, carrots and onion in the crock pot. Something I've done before, but yesterday, it was so bland. And almost greasy. Not the best thing I've ever made, by a long shot. But still, sitting at dinner with Peter and MMJ, chatting about teaching 9th graders Daoism and Thanksgiving plans. It was so lovely.

We made lime jello later on and Peter forced us to watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (hate that stupid show!), but still.

And this morning! Getting ready together and drinking coffee and having someone around to tell me that my outfit looked cute! That's one of the things I miss the most about having roommates. It is so great to have an adorable person around that likes clothes and understands what jewelry you should wear with what, and can actually form an opinion when you ask if you should be wearing flats or boots with your outfit.

I really like this house guest thing so far.


  1. Do you mean Peter doesn't offer suggestions on jewelry and footwear? Haha. Yesterday I asked for Nick's help choosing new boots. He tried to be helpful, but I really could have used a girlfriend's opinion! Glad you're having fun with your house guest.

  2. Oh my gosh, Emily. Peter's standard response is, "Umm, I have no idea! Can't you call your Mom?!"

    Luckily, he has a few other good qualities.

  3. So fun to have a house guest! We are super excited for you to come here on Saturday... to meet miss lilly bean... and to go shopping! they have some adorably cute bride dresses... showers, bachelorette party... and honeymoon OH MY!

  4. BBL, I am SO excited for tomorrow! YAY Lilly warehouse sale! YAY Lilly Luther!
