Most girls Dream... - Baltimore, MD - November 2009

Most girls spend their whole lives dreaming of owning something beautiful and soft, in their choice of white or some version of cream, designed by the one and only Vera Wang.
Last weekend that became a reality for me. I now have my very own Vera Wang; beautiful, soft, and in a unique version of cream.

The close up...

A little bit wider...

Now the full length shot...

Okay, one more close up...

Isn't it GREAT!!!

It's the most wonderful bed I've ever slept on!!!

We're still undecided about new bedding, except for the fact that we need it, it needs to be softer than what we currently have, and machine washable would be a major plus! I'll keep you posted.

Oh and you can just see the temperary fix for window treatments that my friend Blair thinks are good enough to be perminent. Black out curtains from Bed Bath & Beyond. Thanks for the tips on the 20% off and the double curtain rods. More on that later.

Note To Reader: As a total side note, in my search for Vera Wang dress pictures I found this!!!

A Vera Wang Sequined Hem Dress from the Lavender Label. And even though this blog hardly has anything about fashion on it , as I do not consider myself particularly fashionable, I couldn't resist. When I saw it all I could think was... "Ooooooooooh PRETTY!!!"

Till next time,
Bon Voyage!

Feeling Domestic - Baltimore, MD - November 2009

So I was off work on Thursday and felt the need to be domestic. so aside from cleaning house and paying bills, I broke out the heavy kitchen artillery and created my first ever pumpkin Cheesecake! Not the "No Bake" kind, but a real one that you actually bake.

I must give props to Rachel Masters, author of my favorite cook book to date Suppers on the Table, Come Home. This cookbook has totally changed my world when it comes to my confidence in the kitchen. Yay!Her recipe is actually for a Blueberry Cheesecake, but seeing as how it's 2 weeks after holoween and 2 weeks before Thanksgiving, pumpkin cheesecake just sounded perfect!
So I turned all of this...
Into THIS!!!

Till Next time,
Bon Voyage!

Rainy Days - Baltimore, MD - October 2009

Today is one of those days that back in college we'd have called Dennis Huff Days. Long story, but it's the sort of day you just want to stay in bed and watch from the comfort of your down comforter with dry feet.

However, I must confess that rainy days are a bit dream like to me. I've always thought it would be very romantic to kiss in the rain.

Not this kind of kissing in the rain, pretty with an umbrella,

Messy hair, drenched all the way to your skin, no reservations, taken right from the end of the movie Cast Away where Helen Hunt runs down the driveway after Tom Hanks, which I can find a picture of anywhere. ($1 to the first person that can e-mail one to me at!)

or in The Note Book

or one of the best of all time, Breakfast at Tiffanys.
That sort of kissing in the rain! Happy Rainy Day!

Till next time,
Bon Voyage!
