Oh YUM. Hot, freshly baked chocolate filled croissant. So. freaking. good.
Waiting for this hockey game to end so I can watch my Netflix copy of Coco avant Chanel
Also making passion fruit (parcha!) sorbet. It’s churning in the kitchen as I type.
Just saw a really fantastic (& double the size!) apt.
I changed the sheets today. I love a freshly made bed with crisp white sheets, don’t you?
The kibbeh came out delicious! Also made a tangy yogurt & garlic dip, and a cucumber salad. It was a great dinner.
Making kibbeh for dinner tonight. A dream fulfilled! :)
Eating a bowl of delicious riped cubed papaya. Think i might want my bridesmaid’s dresses to be this color!

Ugh. Just watched The Lovely Bones. Man, that sucked. I feel physically ill.

Meh. Got tabbouleh at the work cafe today, but it had practically ZERO parsley in it. Wrong wrong wrong!

Eggs à la Nabocoque Boil water in a saucepan (bubbles mean it is boiling!). Take...– descriptions of food from literature: lashings and lashings of ginger beer
All the wedding planning books I ordered arrived today. Excited to stay in this weekend and go through them. I LOVE party planning! :)

Editing a business letter for my mom. She sent it to me with zero context so I’m trying to fix grammar while figuring out what it’s about
Small scoop of toasted almond ice cream, generous drizzle of passion fruit puree, sprinkle of unsweetened toasted coconut. Yum.
It seems odd that so many stores don’t have online bridal registries available. I’m talking to you, Saks! It’s 2010—get with it.
home sick so laying in bed setting up our wedding registry.
RT @bzzagentjono: Snow Hurricane coming to the Northeast! You heard it here 1st. #Snowrricane http://bit.ly/51uIj
Off to take another oatmeal bath. Sometimes wearing sunscreen *isn’t* good for you (like when you’re allergic to it).
Contacted a few of the NYC venues I’m interested in checking out for the wedding. Let me know if you have any ideas or recs for good spots!
Back at work after a week and a half off. Can’t say it isn’t tough… At least I have a sparkly new rock to show off! ;)
