when i was on the west coast i had the good fortune of being able to meet up with my old college buddy patrick dorsey. we drove down to san pedro with a couple of his friends and hit up this awesome fish market on a wharf.
but christy, you don't eat fish!? doesn't matter. there were still giant trays of grilled veggies, huge loaves of garlic bread and the ultimate pina colada in a pineapple.

i had jamie and susannah over a couple weeks ago for a jamies-pre-birthday-celebration. the pics didn't really turn out, so i decided to post this pic of the three of us re-inacting a silverchair poster at the tender age of 15.
we loved silverchair. we had jamie's mom drive us to st. louis to see them play at mississippi nights on the frogstomp tour. it was my first concert outside of fairs and talent shows. aah, memories.
UPDATE: since i'm SURE you're incredibly interested, I found the poster we're recreating above. extreme dorks? nay! i say dedicated fans.

chris bought us (and i say "us" because he insists it's just as much mine) a new canon 5D. while i'll still turn to my leica first, after playing with this beaut this morning all i can say is whoaaa. i'm in love. i wish you could see this image huge - the detail is AMAZING.
it doesn't hurt that soda's such a good model

this is chris (you probably know that).
not only is chris the kind of guy who wakes up early on snowdays to shovel and salt the sidewalk, but he's also the kind of guy who brings you flowers for no apparent reason, and makes you friendship bracelets when your's get old, and knows exactly how to make you smile when you need it the most, and never once gets snippy when you ask every other day what color you should paint your nails.
i hope everyone finds this sort of companion in their life. i'm a lucky girl.
happy valentines day friends

chris and i decided a couple weekends ago that we should take advantage of the extreme snowfall in NYC and make a snowman. one more blizzard and he'll have an igloo to hang out next to.
UPDATE: due to a warm spell last weekend the snowman has lost his head. but he's still sporting the scarf, so there's that.

okay. so if you know me well you know that i'm obsessed with many, many things, but being crafty and nail art are pretty much at the top of the list.
that being said i feel i need to share with you my discovery of the sally hansen nail polish strips. run to CVS and grab some. they rule. i got my hands on the 'misbehaved' pattern last night and am hooked.
who knows how long they'll actually stay on my nails, but honestly who cares. they were easy to put on and they're less expensive than a manicure and they look like real polish. If anyone finds the 'Laced Up' pattern buy a set for me.
here's a real review. i'll go back to work now.

a couple weeks ago erin had some ladies over to make dreamcatchers. we decided we wouldn't do too much research - just everyone come over with feathers and leather and string and beads and see what we come up with
they all turned out so great!! everyone had their own method - one even had sequins. mine proudly hangs in our bedroom window
erin explains it way better on her blog

i get it.
this winter kinda sucks weather wise and we're all sick of talking about it. blizzards, ice, cancelled flights, and shoveling the sidewalk. blaaah. we've been dealing with it for over a month and are kinda over it.
but i just got my pics! so lets relive the good times together.
