Also, I just made a ring that I am obsessed with.

HI kiddies!

I'm all amped up on coffee and ready to BLOG. so. what's doin?  I'm going a little wacky over here- we miss the honeymooning life! And now I have all sorts of wholesale projects to get done within the next couple of weeks, not to mention it's basically christmas. I know, it's not, but in my brain it is!

So now I'm wearing a onesie, sitting on the couch, about to try to design a label for little plastic pouches to pack jewelry in for the craft fair! Andddd I'm editing some pictures to list some new drusy bits- wanna see??

I want to make all sorts of little drusy necklaces that can be worn together in different ways! Like stackable rings, but necklaces. Cute?! CUTE.

Ok I'm gonna go before I make you not want to come back to this blog ever again.

I'm wearing a onesie.

Did I say that?

Oh, here's something I need to get off my onesie-clad chest. I went to Target yesterday, (where I bought a pretty little peasant top and a hilarious cropped long sleeves grey shirt with a giant heart?!) (and a scarf I definitely don't need) and I found the VERY LAST Missoni article of clothing I think- it was a blue thin puffer jacket with blue zig zags. I got super excited, tried it on, realized it wasn't that flattering.But I was still swept up in everything. So I took it in my cart and fantasized about selling it on Ebay. Then I realized, I probably wouldn't do that. Then I thought, maybe I'll just wear it? Then I thought, it's not that flattering on. Then I thought, why do I want it so badly? SO I put it back!! Biggest mistake ever?! I DON'T KNOW!!!

tell me its ok.

I'm married!

Greetings from honeymoon land!

We are in beautiful NYC this fine morning.

We both have the worst colds, but those didn't start until after the wedding.

Here are two teaser photos until we get the rest.

Some highlights from New York so far:

Eating lunch at Balthazar's, and having a waitress ask me if I looked familiar because I was an actress.

Eating at Momofuku Ko.

Also eating across from Alan Alda the next night.

Obviously this trip has focused on eating.

The crazy girl getting married on Saturday with a super pimply chin??? Who is stressed out and keeps touching it?? and it just keeps getting worse?!

Anyway, you haven't heard from me for a while because i'm going a little crazy. The seating chart is done though, the goody bags packed, my dad is working hard on making all of the little wooden/test tube vase/ escort card holders. Parents are the best.

Oh! And I went on a hilarious bachelorette adventure to Atlantic City!! The highlight had to be dancing in a swimming pool to Paulie D from Jersey Shore dj's. And then a guy started throwing singles into the pool at us. And then we started grabbing. And then we ended up with $96 of the $100 (we saw the money band that said it was a stack of a hundred). And then we went to get pizza with it.

I'll post more pictures later, but here is a taste!

We had a limo!!! 

We dressed up.

We had pringles and drank wine!

And then we danced in a pool!

Anyhoo, it was clearly a pretty big hoot. Now I'm going to take a bath and pretend that it's not a crazy busy night!
