the week in photos.

this is the week we say goodbye to october.

hello to november.

and pray for the east coast.

it’s so hard to believe our first “us place” was in the midst of the wrath.

all the photos on the left are mine. from our jersey city apartment.

then & now





count your blessings.

now onto ‘the week in photos’ …[tryin’ out a new style]

  1. when in doubt – rock black & white. @ the rehearsal dinner in my kardashian kollection polka dot blazer. with a black & white mani.
  2. possible fashion faux pas? but I couldn’t choose. a night out on the town calls for leopard print {steve madden wedges} AND snake skin {white coach bag}.
  3. scrumptious dinner @ japonais. hot rock filet mignon!
  4. did I mention I caught the bouquet?!?!?! :)
  5. taco tuesday. w/ [J].
  6. drinking beer out of a frosty mason jar. I think red hook is going for the christmas look.
  7. I finally got my target beauty bag in the mail. {I love free samples}. how did target know I’m a leopard fan?

tonight is the night – I’ve finally planned my october date [whoops] for [J] & I. a recap will be up on monday. assuming it goes well.

have a great weekend all.

nasty hurricane sandy.

in “honor” of hurricane sandy [that witchh] …I’m going to momentarily rant & rave about her nasty cousin that tried to ruin [J] & I’s birthdays last year.. evil irene.

you can read the whole story {here}. but the short version is… we were leaving new york for a birthday vacation in miami. she [nasty irene] delayed our flight, over 3+ hours ..but eventually, we escaped. [thank goodness].

then came the damn jellyfish - that irene conveniently carried with her from the bahamas during her trip up the coast and dropped them off in miami. so much for enjoying a swim in the ocean…

and the real kick in the pants …

our monday AM flight back home – cancelled. after 45 mins on hold with JetBlue, we discovered the next chance for us to board a plane & head back to NYC was friday morning. hmm, excuse me – that’s 4 days away! usually I’d love being stranded in beautiful miami with a valid excuse for missing work ..but we did NOT want the expense of extending our vacay [hotel, food, etc]. and after a long birthday weekend, we were ready to go home.

so we drove.

24 hours from MIAMI to NYC.

I’m getting flustered just talking about it …


so while I am over-joyed to be missing irene’s witch of cousin – sandy.. my heart goes out to those facing her wrath. whether you’re trying to travel in or out of NYC. or you can’t escape your apartment for fear of being blown away. I’m thinking of you, hoping for the very best, & praying her damage will be just as overrated as irene’s.

sandy go away. & don’t come back. [with any cousins either].
