be back soon!

Hi everyone!
Just wanted to do a quick post telling you all to stay tuned.
I've been having some health issues so I haven't been able to write lately... Not enough energy. I'm getting everything checked out and hopefully should be back in action soon!

Craft Fair Tomorrow!

So tomorrow is the big day. I probably won't be able to post until some time on Sunday- so stay tuned for that. I'll take some pretty pictures of the table and of course, yours truly....

Now, tonight is going to be a rough one folks. My sisters 21st birthday is today. WOO HOO. 21!!!! Last night, my boyfriend and I had the pleasure of picking her up from the club. She also is going out to the club tonight, and tomorrow night. Guess who gets the joy of picking her up again tonight? YOU GUESSED IT! Me and the boyfriend.

Last night was a treat. She prepared me earlier that she will NOT allow us to pick her up any time before 2:00am. Now, I'm 23 years old, but I have to say- this whole "clubbing" phase never really hit me. I like sitting at home, reading, watching movies... during the week, I am NEVER awake at 2am. Ever. (yes, grandma jokes can be said.. I embrace it completely!!)

Well, it was my lucky night I guess since at 11:40 (only an hour and a half after she got there) she called and asked us to pick her up. SCORE. I was thrilled. I felt bad she wasn't having fun, but still.. she's only 21. She has her whole life to have fun. Me on the other hand, need sleep. Especially since I can't drink coffee at the time being *tear*

So again today, I was warned I am NOT to pick her up before 2am again tonight. I have a feeling I'm going to have to wait that long... Lets see how bright eyed and bushy tailed I am tomorrow morning at 6:00am when I wake up to get ready for the fair!

Wish me luck everyone! I'll keep you posted on my picking up duty tonight. Hey, if you're lucky I may even get a nice snapshot of drunky getting out of the club tonight. ha ha

Lets Update.

So. A fast update...and don't worry.. this won't be ANOTHER post dedicated to coffee. But I will mention first off... no more coffee for me (FOR NOW!). I spoke too soon and was a moron. Having 4 cups of coffee within 24 hours was a bad decision. I really only have myself to blame...

Now, onto bigger and better things. I have been feeling creative lately (I know, it rarely happens now, so that's why I'm very excited to share!). I made this new necklace and I absolutely love it.

I had to show you guys. Isn't it cute? Well... It's very much "my style", so; me likes. ha ha

I think this one shows more of me.. and this next one shows more of my mother. I love how we are kind of the same, yet very different. And our jewelry shows that (or at least I think it does). Look below. This is what my mother made.

Now, I love this necklace; but it is more "grown up" then the one I made, ha ha. There is a definite distinction between our pieces. *A side note... I'm pretty sure this is the only time I will ever describe something dealing with my mother as "grown up".

Alright, enough advertising Jewels For Hope for now (ha ha!) I should get back to work. Hope you all are having a fantastic Tuesday!

Love at First Taste

So. I have been going through coffee withdrawals. I feel like a crack addict not getting my fix.

Over the past 3 weeks I haven't had a single cup of coffee. Its been killing me.
I decided myself (since my doctor didn't know anything) that I have acid reflux. And I had it horribly over the past couple of weeks. I won't put you through the details of it but let's just say it wasn't pretty. That equaled no coffee for me.

Yesterday I decided to try out my first cup since taking meds for this. IT WAS GLORIOUS! Everyone at the diner must have thought I was crazy... Including my boyfriend.

When the waiter poured the coffee the first thing out of my mouth (while staring into the gorgeous mug) was "hello lover".
I then proceeded to savor the moment. I took a solid ten minutes just holding that mug in my hands smelling that amazing aroma.

Some people may think I'm nuts.... But it is worth it. This coffee was just amazing.

I'm currently drinking my 2nd cup of coffee as we speak. Yum. And so the addiction begins again....

Thank F*cking God it's......

FRIDAY! WOOHOO! Let the weekend begin! This weekend my mother and I were supposed to do a craft fair for our jewelry.I'm kind of disappointed! I bought my mother a sign for her birthday that we could hang up behind us at the fair. I was really happy she liked it.. take a look!

Not the greatest picture, but you get the idea.

Well, the fair is now postponed until next Saturday. OF COURSE! The weekend of my sister's 21st birthday. That should be fun. Let's hope I don't look toooo hung over that day. Need to make a good impression on the buyers, ya know?! ha ha.

So.. this weekend I am free as a bee! Now I have time to catch up on laundry, cleaning, working out... you know; all the fun stuff!

Maybe I'll try Diva's Green Tea Martini this weekend.Yum. I do love me a good martini.

I rarely ever have a "free" weekend. This is something special. I actually can't wait to do "nothing" for once. I run around most of the time so I'm usually a mess most days- but this weekend I have high hopes of being less like a tornado running around town and more like a normal human being, relaxing.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Put your sunglasses on folks, it's bright!

So. Today I feel like talking about NYC. Th place that has my heart.

THAT'S ME! In the front, with my old college roomate. NYC LOVE, Baby!

....I lived in the city for 4 years when I went to college. It's difficult for me to find the time to go back there as much as I would like to now... you know how it is, life gets in the way.

Well, my sister is going there tomorrow. I'M EXTREMELY JEALOUS. I was talking to my boyfriend about it the other day. He hates the city. That breaks my heart. I have been trying to get him to take a day trip with me for months. He just doesn't budge. When we were talking about the city, I was telling him about this crazy Indian restaurant I have been to... now, a little bit about the boyfriend--- he is THE PICKIEST eater EVER. Really.. I think he just started eating mashed potatoes for the first time a couple years ago (and hes 24 now.) Yea, P-I-C-K-Y!

So of course, after I bother him for a loonnnggg time.. I make him promise to come to the city with me one day when its "nicer weather". YAY! Well.. I then tell him about this restaurant. It's called Milon. Below are some pictures that I took one out of the billion times I've been there.

So. This is it. I LOVE THIS PLACE. The first picture is the outside of the place, and the 2nd picture IS FREAKING INSIDE! U

I have brought so many people here and everyone is amazed by the decorations. I love it there. It doesn't have the most authentic Indian food ever... but its verrrrrry reasonably priced- and really, look at the ambiance. It's worth it even if you just want to sit in there! If you ever want to go....

Milon Restaurant

93 1st Avenue
New York, NY 10003
(212) 228-4896

Its on the corner of 6th and 1st.

I miss it there. Hell, I miss New York. Unfortunately, the boyfriend refuses to go anywhere where he cannot get "American" food. boo on him. I'll have to come back here another time soon.

If you do ever decide to go to this restaurant... but sure that when you go up the stairs- GO TO THE LEFT. It is two competing restaurants-- and I feel the one on the left is better ha ha.

And finally...One last photo to leave ya with...

Tell Me! Tell Me! Tell Me!

So, I’m going to follow suit from The Fabulous Bitch and answer the question…. “Why do you blog?”

I started blogging, really, for the wrong reason. Well, not technically wrong- but different. I started blogging to try and get mine and my mothers company’s name out. This is something that hits home for my mother. She started the company since she couldn’t really leave the house when she was taking care of my grandmother. She had to stay home. And this was how she passed her time. She put her heart and soul into this company and I wanted to do my part and get the name out there for others to see.

I don’t feel that that is such a horrible reason to start blogging, right? I wanted to help my mother. Well, over the past month or so (because we all know I haven’t been blogging that long) I really got involved in blogging. I absolutely love it. As previously stated I am sooo that person with an addictive personality- so of course once I got into blogging, I would get addicted to it. Not surprised one bit.

Most of my friends think I’m “weird” for blogging. They just don’t get the freedom of it. To just rant and rave one day or to just share with the world. Granted, I only have 10 followers so I wouldn’t necessarily say “the world” yet… but you get the idea. I just love this. And then to look on other people’s blogs and see what they are passionate about, or what they are going through right now. It’s amazing. I can’t imagine myself not blogging now.

And besides… when I blog- I get to discuss whatever the hell I want to talk about!! My friends who call me weird for blogging---- when do they just get to talk about whatever they want? When talking face to face to friends, topics change constantly. Something one person is passionate about, the other people in the group may hate. Blogging- I can write about what I want, when I want to. And if someone doesn’t like it- they can go to a different website- no harm done- doesn’t bother me at all. Simple as that. No struggling to retake control of the convo. I love it. Don’t you?

So tell me… why do you blog?

Happy Friday everyone!!!! I hope everyone has a drink for me tonight- a nice way to relax after the tough work week!

Tonight, I will be staying in with my wonderful boyfriend. He's cooking me dinner and rented a movie. This could be something really sweet... OR he feels guilty for something. Either way, I do love a free meal!

Have a nice night everyone!

Chocolate..... Enough Said.

In case you all couldn't tell by now, I have a semi-addictive personality. I'm addicted to gambling, coffee, coffee (it's so good I had to write it twice!), and the best one.. CHOCOLATE. One day I'll probably throw "Blogging" into that mix, but I'm still new to this, so slow and steady wins the race.

Back to my favorite, CHOCOLATE. I probably eat chocolate every day (and yes, I still have the amazing figure that I do! ha ha). Well.. while looking through blogs today (again, the best part of my 12-8 day) I came across Lets Have A Cocktail's blog. (Which, btw, definitely check her blog out- it's amazing)She's having a delicious giveaway!!! Who doesn't like free chocolate? Really? I know I DO!

So. The giveaway is from this AWESOME chocolate website. I swear, if I had the money, I would probably buy every combination known to man kind from this site. And I say "if I had the money" because I would also need a new wardrobe to manage my growing waist from eating pounds upon pounds of chocolate. The name of the company is Chocomize. I will call them "HEAVEN" from now on.

Now that I've rambled on for a while about my love for chocolate.. I think I'll go get some. Granted, it won't look half as good as the pictures on Chocomize's website; but hell, I make do with what I got!

Now if only we were allowed alcohol at work, it would be the perfect evening.

Bloomy's always has the best stuff

So. It is a gorgeous gorgeous day out in CT. High 80's.. sun is shining... and guess where I am? In my cube, that's right!

Well.. while looking through blogs (which is the best part of the day for me between the hours of 12-8) I found this great contest on AmandaBeth's blog! Go to Bloomingdale's website and create your own "Go Green" bag. The prizes are fantastic going from $100-$2,000! And, along with all of that- it's fun to design your own bag!!!! Check out mine below!

Going Green with a Twist of Lime: "

Going Green with a Twist of Lime is a fun way to attract attention and try and get people to Go Green."

Of course I would do something including a pretty green cocktail! But Hey! It's Wednesday! Halfway through the week I'm pretty sure I deserve a pretty little drink like that.

There is a lot of really nice designs on there- go make your bag and vote! This is running from April 7th- 25th ...And everyone should be a little more environmentally friendly these days, so this is a great way to get people involved! Who wouldn't like to win money for designing a bag over the internet?

So. It’s been awhile again. Wow, I cannot believe that I’ve been so busy lately. And I feel like I haven’t really done much to show for it!

You will all be glad to know that the sickness is officially over- as of Sunday! Thank God! I was a freaking mess the past couple days. The upside is the 4 lb weight loss. Let’s see if that keeps up ha ha.

So, today I feel like just talking. No specific topic, no one direction. Just talking. So pull up a chair, some popcorn, relax, and let’s chat *well, maybe I won’t be able to do the popcorn or relax portion since “technically” I am at work... but you get the idea*

My mother and I have a jewelry show coming up in a couple weeks. I’m actually really excited about it. For my mother’s birthday I bought her a poster I made from snapfish to hang up at the craft fair we’re participating in. It is freaking adorable! I love it! It *hopefully* will bring people to our table to look at the goods 

I honestly just like hanging out with my family during these shows. I don’t expect too much. My family is such a loud bunch that people usually flock over to us anyway- just to see what the commotion is ha ha. I’ll let you all know how it goes. Its April 17th so it’s still a ways away.

So summer is right around the corner, and I cannot believe it is already here! The weather here in CT has been freaking amazing lately. I got a smidge burnt this weekend, but it was definitely worth it. I sat out on my deck reading two of my favorite books. Jemima J by Jane Green and Such a Pretty Fat by Jennifer Lancaster.

My two favorite authors. I love love love their work! I probably have read their books a hundred times each. I have a sick obsession with reading. When I was younger and all the kids were outside playing in the “fort” I used to get yelled at to go get some exercise since I was huddled up in the house for hours just reading. To this day I choose reading over exercise (obviously! Ha ha).

If you ever get the chance to read either author’s work, DO IT. Easy reads that are hysterical. I sound like an advertisement for them, but I’m okay with that- their work is that good.

Anyone have any good suggestions for books that may catch my interest? I love learning about new authors and reading new books. I can't go into Barnes and Nobles for a "quick trip". I have to take hours and go through every book to see which one I want most. I usually find about 10 or more that I want to buy. But, since I'm not Miss Money Bags I have to narrow my selection down to 1. Sad, I know.. but ya do what ya gotta do!

Ah, now I'm sitting here thinking about what to read next. I should have never started this topic ha ha. Seeing as how I still have about 7 hours left of the work day and won't be able to crack open another book until 8:30/9:00 tonight. Fingers crossed the day flies by.

Well, This is all for now. Maybe if the mood strikes later on I'll write about something completely different. Who knows.. I'm in one of those weird moods at the moment :)

The Sickness

So. It's been well over a week. I can't believe I haven't been able to get to a computer in this long. I have been sick as can be since last Wednesday. Horrible, I know. Today is the first day I actually feel well enough to stay the entire work day.

I don't even really have anything to post about tonight, I'm just so happy I have a few extra minutes to write here and let ya'll know what is going on.

I have been back and forth to the doctor, who was no help. Just a stomach bug is what they keep telling me. Great. At least I'm not pregnant though! Yes, I did have them check for pregnancy. And all week, before I went to the doctor, my father would walk around the house calling me "preggers".

Now, I'm 23 years old and I am NOT ready to be a mother yet. Not even close. So even though I have had to deal with a stomach bug for over a week, I am thrilled as hell that I am not pregnant.

Suffice it to say, it's been a strange, weird week for me. I am just happy to be feeling remotely better that I can stay at work. Especially seeing as how I have already used up my sick time for the rest of the year ha ha.

I hope everyone passing through has had a great week so far. And I wish everyone a happy holiday this weekend! :) I hope the Easter Bunny bring lots of yummy treats to everyone
