Jesus and hamburger buns

We had our first BBQ of the year yesterday to break in the new house.

The night before Carolyn, Jess, Ash and I were laughing HYSTERICALLY because we hadn't bought anything or knew if the grill worked and the invitation said it went from 12:00-8:00. Donna was not really amused and was getting really upset at our poor planning, so I prayed that God would bless the BBQ and provide hamburger buns since that was Donna's biggest concern. Seriously she was almost in tears over the buns.

So the next morning Donna was on her way home from some meeting and discovers a pile of buns on our front porch, comes in and says to Carolyn,"there is a God and he provided buns" and Carolyn starts dying and says,"there is a God and there's also a Molly who dropped off the buns this morning."

If anyone's having a BBQ we have about 80 left over blessed hamburger and hot dog buns.

cool introduction

I'm officially moved into 103 New London road with 3 of the coolest girls of life. The photos have been hung, my car unpacked and clothes put away. I also met our neighbors...

I was walking outside to go on a bike ride, and when I bike I like to look like a cyclist....aka ridiculous. I had on my full spandex outfit and was happily greeted by the boys next door barbecuing. I'm pretty sure I freaked them out for life. It was PERFECT.

Before I left for school I went and saw Little Miss Sunshine. It was great. A nice modern commentary on what it means to be successful. I went to see the movie by myself, which I'd never done before. It was really cool though. Pretty entertaining.

A couple weeks ago I saw Iron and Wine play in Brooklyn in an abandoned swimming pool. And then we went to this place called the Barcade where they had all of these old school video games. I played tetris for hours.

Mccarren Pool

it was abandoned for over 20 years and then they decided to make it into a concert venue last summer. It holds over 6,800 swimmers, and was built by the WPA in the 1930's.
