On Friday night I traveled up to Katie's for our inaugural meeting of book club. Katie got the idea for a book club by reading MWF Seeking BFF which I've read in the past for a different book club. My weekends have been full of plans lately so I haven't had a chance to attend my old book club in quite a while.

The food was delicious. I made spiced candied walnuts and almonds following this recipe. They are very addicting. I ate way too many on Saturday. I'll try to eat them slowly as snacks for the rest of the week. I also enjoyed spinach and artichoke dip and Kelly's deep dish Biscoff cookies.
I feel like a lot of people can connect with this book. Especially if you've ever moved to a new city and faced the struggle of finding friends! I know this was a big issue for me when I moved to Arlington Heights after college. Interestingly, most of the people I've met and made friends with here have been through blogging. My mom thinks that weird but hey, it works!
