Lunch with Lauren

Jason and I are in Maryland for the weekend. It was my cousin’s wedding last night. But before that, we went to lunch with Lauren and her husband Greg.

Lauren and I have a ridiculous amount of things in common and it’s about time we finally got to meet in person. Just off the top of my head, and I’m sure there are more, we both:

* are from Maryland
* have art degrees
* are the same height
* were both RAs in college
* have similar histories with food and healthy eating/working out
* have golden retrievers
* have similar political beliefs
* and as of yesterday, have the same red Toms

I’m sure there’s much more, but I can’t think of it right now. I’m also flustered because I’m using a PC and don’t know how to make a bullet point. Reason #1234 why Macs are better.

She lives about an hour from where my mom lives and since we didn’t have a ton of time, they drove up to Rockville (about 15 minutes for me, maybe 45 for her) to eat lunch at Lebanese Taverna. It was nice out so we sat outside.

I had the Olivia’s platter which was a choice of three mezza dishes. I chose spicy hummus (though it wasn’t very spicy), vegetarian grape leaves and salad.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have much time to spend with them, since the wedding was at 4:30 and about an hour away. It was still really fun to meet and hopefully next time, we’ll get to hang out longer (and meet their goldens.)

And she brought me Kind bars!
