Shane and I did an escape room today near Charlotte by ourselves. Despite it just being the two of us, we made it with more than 2 minutes left. Also, the host told me I actually solved the original puzzle that they changed because no one else was getting it -- we had to figure out to solve it the easy way to win, which cost us some extra time :) All in all, a fun one! We may have to come back to do the racing-themed one later.

We're having a potluck tomorrow to celebrate a teammate's last day. I've been thinking about this tomato Brie pie for awhile now, so I decided to make it. I really started experimenting with cooking and finding what kind of flavors I liked during my internship in Virginia, where I worked nights and didn't know anyone. This is the first recipe I tried making myself that had "fancy" ingredients. I was house sitting for someone and had access to a great kitchen. This recipe came up while reading Diane Mott Davidson's mystery "The Main Corpse."

It was lovely watching Alan Alda tonight tell stories about his life. It was weird, too, to hear a voice in person that I'm so familiar with and have it sound exactly the same, to see the same crinkly, twinkling eyes just across the room that made Hawkeye Pierce one of my first crushes growing up. Also, very excited to hear that Jill and Joe Biden will open the #BryanSeries in September!!

Tonight's entertainment at #DPAC after dinner at Mateo's. Shane might have to elbow me if I start singing along. This is one of the first CDs I ever owned!
