Almost Famous

Last week on Facebook, my brother's girlfriend's mother (got all that?) posted a picture from the newest issue of Glamour magazine:
and there, on the bottom right corner of the page is my brother's girlfriend, Francesca, in all her fashion-glory! I was so excited and rushed to my mailbox to see if my magazine had arrived...of course it hadn't...so I had to wait an entire other day to receive it, but I have say, it was worth the wait, Francesca looks ever more fabulous in glossy print than on a pixilated computer screen.  She's all "business on the top and party on the bottom!"

Way to go girl!

"Went down a Treat"

Do you know what this means?  I just received a message from a customer in the UK that a necklace she purchased "Went down a TREAT."  I read this and didn't understand it, Did she miss a word in the sentence?  Did the necklace fall off while she was baking cookies?  Did someone accidentally take it while Trick-or-Treating?  So I decided to Google it and here is the definition of the phrase: "It was enjoyed very much." 

Phew, I'm so relieved...

Here's RJ eating 6 cookies worth of cookie-dough...they went down a treat!

Meeting Jan Brett

Yesterday, my son and I stood in Wegmans for hours to meet Jan Brett and have her sign our book...it was totally worth it!  She was so sweet and kind (even after signing 205 copies before us), and RJ had so much fun!

Our big moment (I love how she's giving RJ a nice cuddle)!

Such a wonderful experience! Happy Monday!
