But, I came home to 2 marvelous surprises.
First, former Washington Post intern classmate Morgan dropped in this week and gifted me a beautiful handmade apron. It's made out of oil cloth, so it'll wipe clean, no matter what I spill or drop on it!
Next, Jake surprised me with the adorable panda dip bowl I tweeted about earlier. Naturally, I loaded it up with pineapple fried rice and went to town.
