Ahh, Carma always spoils us. I know that she will downplay the whole situation, but in the two hostess experiences, I have felt wonderfully spoiled. Carma had the ever-so-evil, but oh-so-delectable artichoke dip from Costco with various crackers and bread, mmmm. Then the small but irresistible bowls of candy and a wonderfully executed pound cake with fresh whipped cream and strawberries. And don't forget the fizzy, special soda drinks. It was perfect. Thank you Carma.
Our next book is The Host. Originally to be hosted by Kathy (but she's going to be out of town or otherwise unavailable), so Jenn generously offered to host. We know it's going to be grand. (And now that Breaking Dawn is out, it may be a crazy rehash of the Twilight series too! No spoilers please!) September will be Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer and I will be hosting that night...in my cardboard box on the corner of Poinsettia and Aviara. Just kidding. I'll update you to the locale soon.
I hope that you are all doing well and having a beautiful summer. LA has been a wonderful 75 degrees and we are living happily, loving our ward, meeting new friends and missing old ones! Happy reading to all!
