The only chain I haven't broken

I've always been terrible at chain letters.
I'm always the one to break the chain "that's been going for 20 years,"
and then I have life-long guilt about it.

That was until Kelly came home with a ziploc bag of 
Amish Friendship bread starter mix.
The gals at his work have all been passing it around.

After 10 days of mashing the bag,
yesterday was the big baking day--
Which I forgot about until we were going to bed.

I went out to the kitchen and realized we had only one egg.
Kelly texted Cristy and Scott to pick some up on the way home.

So I got to work.
 Cristy and Scott showed up with the eggs 
just in time for me to realize we were out of oil...
Scott said they would go back to the store because they were really tired,
and they love going to the store when they're really tired, because everything's funny--
or something like that.

Cristy changed into her I ♥ Hanson t-shirt.
{she was just getting back from their concert} 
Then back to the store they went.
Life-savers I tell ya.
 After the bread was in the oven,
I was tired, and went to bed.
Cristy took the bread out of the oven an hour later.

It was nice to wake up to this.
Can you smells the cinnamon?

delightfully dense.
 Fantastically cinnamon and sugary.
I think it will make the perfect conference snack.

Happy October!
