My friends know me so well

It was my birthday last week. I'm not sure how I feel about this. But I did get lots of chocolate which made it O.K. First, I went to Fatty Crab with Jen, Kathy, and Audra. The food was great and we ended dinner with the 'Fatty Bar', dark chocolate with chilis-SO GOOD!
Then Liz brought me some dark chocolate with Fleur de Sel from Mast Brothers. It's a Brooklyn chocolate factory run by two brothers. The chocolate was perfect, and the packaging was even better-beautiful handmade paper. THEN there was more chocolate from Jacqui when she, Karen, and Allison took me to lunch. THEN, cadbury creme eggs from my mom. I'm chocolate-ed out (in a good way). It's only once a year right?! (But then there's Valentine's day...and Easter....)

Fashion and Fitness worlds collide

On my way to the gym on Saturday, I saw Grace Coddington walking into a pilates studio in my neighborhood. I love her. If you have not seen the September Issue- I suggest you see it right away- Grace Coddington is hilarious and talented and the most entertaining part of the documentary.
THEN, while at the gym, I had a moment of fashion surreality when Francisco Costa (sitting on the leg raise machine) exclaims "Hi Marc!", at which point Marc Jacobs walks over and says-"Oh hi I didn't see you there!" kiss kiss. Then my head exploded from fashion icon overload.
