So, during church yesterday I noticed a link in the program to a specific website that shall not be documented here that is supposed to be about provident living. As that is my new calling, I determined to check it out for helpful resources. What did I find?

Not a list for easy-to-pack 72-hour kits, that's for sure. Instead, I found personal posts about gun-control being bad mixed with emergency preparedness quotes from prophets. What the...? I won't go into detail, but was definitely happy when my RS President gave me the links that I needed to look at for my calling and this was not one of them. Sheesh.

So, my friend Erin just left this morning after a week-long visit (she was here for business and extended a bit to do some site-seeing) and now I have a little bit of time before I have to go to my ALL-DAY-LONG Saturday class (seriously, it's from 11-5:30 - who does that?), so I decided to give a quick update. I'll post about some of the other things, but just wanted to let you know about one of the greatest places to eat lunch if you are on the Mall. The National Museum of the American Indian. Yup, you heard me. They have a great cafeteria where you can get Native American food from various regions of the Americas. Even gluten-free! It was delicious. I got this great masa cake with black beans, peppers, and some kind of cheese sauce all over it. SOOOOOOOOO good. Erin got some kind of lobster cakes (bleh) that she said was good and some fry bread with a blueberry syrup. If you are in town, you should definitely make your way there!
