happy halloween!

hope everyone is having a wonderful halloween! i finally got my hands on a bag of candy corn so i'm sort of in heaven right now (i also had grilled cheese with smoked gouda, provolone and goat cheese with spinach and tomato soup for dinner - see my last post ;) i'm thinking next year i might have to go ahead and make up this candy corn infused vodka for cocktails. i am fully aware that candy corn is technically gross, but i love it so.

i hope your costume is awesome! i think i'll spook myself with an episode of Dexter tonight and settle in with green tea and saline spray ;)

it appears that i brought back some sort of evil head cold with me from Italy (or at least from one of the 3 flights i was on coming home). i seem to have forgotten just how terrible the common cold can really be, sigh. should be fun to go back to work after 2.5 weeks off tomorrow only operating at 20% (yes, even though i am crazy sick i still would feel too guilty to not at least show up at work tomorrow - lame).

but anyway, ever since i was a kid the ultimate comfort food that always makes me feel better when i am sick is grilled cheese and tomato soup. when i was young it used to be a very simple affair comprised of white bread with american cheese. the excitement now is making some seriously decadent incarnations with different combinations of cheese (like gruyere and swiss) on seriously crusty yummy bread. does it really get any better than dunking a giant grilled sandwich of happiness into warm soup? sigh, i'm starting to feel better already just thinking about it.

and if you are so inspired there's a great guide to grilled cheese over at Martha
(where else would you even look?)

does grilled cheese do it for you? what's your favorite comfort food?

back to reality ;)

well hello hello there interwebs. i'm finally back from the frenzy of getting married and the lovely italian honeymoon that followed ;)

little by little i will be getting back into my routine and updating this blog and the shop (which is finally back open!). crazy enough it is supposed to *snow* here tomorrow!? so it seems that the time for yarn accessories is officially here.

i'll be sharing more wedding related goodies soon enough but there's a shot from our first look and you can see the rest of the photo sneak peek over on our amazing photographers' facebook page ;)

it's showtime

sorry for falling off the face of the earth, but i'm getting married tomorrow ;)

organizing a wedding is tough stuff,
so i think i'll be more than relieved when it's just time to dance the night away!
