I’ve given Andy Cohen two shoutouts — one on my honeymoon reading his amaze book (completed in less than 48 hours) and the other holding this Mazel shirt…I’m going to keep tweeting him until I hear back! Brace yourself Andy.
A quick stop at Georgetown Cupcakes downtown…where I saw a Kitchenaid mixer that belonged in my kitchen.
Birthday truffles for Karen from the always-thoughtful Jennifer Rose!
One of my favorite elements of the Saks window displays is that you can always see the reflection of Rockafeller Center in the background.

My quick visit to NY was fabulous, as NY always is, and I came home looking forward to the next opportunity I might have to go back. This two-part post however, would not be complete without sharing my Delta travel experiences…
1) Your luggage might get run over by a driver in an SUV who refuses to apologize (true story). You lecture him until he agrees to be more careful to not run over people’s luggage and feeling that you won, you walk away. He probably gives you the bird behind your back.
2) You might have to run through the airport to catch a flight because your initial flight was delayed an hour due to a flight attendant not showing up for work (is a small plastic cup of diet coke and a child’s handful of peanuts worth it? Not really).
3) You can’t stop sweating post-airport dash and the flight attendant on your second flight makes you check your Hartmann luggage because there’s no room in the inn….but once your sweaty self enters the plane you realize he was wrong as you stare at the perfect empty spot in the overhead bin and now your luggage is being tossed around like a 40 lb. hot potato below deck.
4) To apologize for all four of your Delta flights being delayed 40 minutes – 1 hour and 15 minutes, Delta gives you $12 dollars in meal vouchers. Said vouchers are used for three lattes…but had coffee not have been available, the vouchers would have been used to purchase anything that was available and then would have been thrown in the trash can…because making sure I spent every cent of said voucher helped me sleep at night.
5) You pay an extra $25 for priority boarding but that doesn’t matter when all of your flights are delayed and you run through the airport to get ON the plane, having to check your luggage because everyone else has already boarded. Also doesn’t matter when no one even checks the tickets to confirm which zone is boarding.
6) You have the pleasure of only being able to sit in 1/2 of your seat thanks to your aisle mate and the flight attendant’s cart rams your body each time it comes down the aisle.
