Bridal Market Favorites

There were so many amazing dresses at the Spring 2012 Bridal Market...

I love the new trends! Sparkles, Lace and Backless

Here are some of my favorites...

Loving the sparkliness from Angel Sanchez... So fun!

Loving the lace and the sleeves from Jenny Lee.

Isn't this dress To Die For.  The fit is amazing and it looks so comfortable.  And then she turns around and the back is AMAZING! Love it!

I love this dress by Rivini. The lace, the cap sleeves, the bow.. it's beautiful!

Loving the lace, with the ruching, with cap sleeves.  Gorgeous!

Parker's Crazy Cookies

Parker's Crazy Cookies is a boutique bakery who makes cookies that look just like people.  They are located in the San Francisco Bay Area, but they ship all over. The cookies were inspired by animal crackers, which are one of my personal downfalls.  I first saw these cookies in Food Network Magazine, where they had a cookie that looked exactly like Guy Fieri, check it out...

I cannot get over how much they actually look like people...

They are great ideas for wedding favors too...

I cannot wait to order some of these...

Baseball Season Tracker

I just came across this awesome infographic print from Jared Fanning on Design Work Life.  It is a way to track your favorite baseball team all season long.  Since Opening Day was last week and my beloved Mets are off to a good start (knocking on wood), it seems like a great idea right now...
The print has spaces for you to track the season game by game, it has 182 spaces for games.

And a space to track your personal game attendance.

And the final product is great to frame and showcase, if you are not hating your team by the end of the season.

 You can purchase one here from Jared Fanning.

Ma&Gia Osteria Italiana

Joel and I went out to dinner and to the movies for Date Night recently.  We had been dying to try this new restaurant right near where he works, Ma & Gia

We had a great time... A nice cheeseboard and a salumi platter accompanied by some delicious wine... perfect!

Delicatessen: International Comfort Food

Last weekend, Joel and I went down to SOHO for a little lunch and shopping.  SOHO is full of tons of different restaurants, but we luckily stumbled upon this amazing place.  Delicatessen is located on the corner of Prince Street and Lafayette Street, which I guess is actually Nolita.

While, the restaurant was pretty packed, we ended up just grabbing some seats at the bar.  The bartender there was awesome, so we had a great time.

The food was To Die For!

I had the most amazing Mac & Cheese, Margarita Mac, with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, parmigiano, and basil.  It might have been one of the best things I have ever tasted.  Yummm!!!  Oh, and I cannot forget about my delicious Pear Bellini.  Bellini's are one of my favorite cocktails.

Joel's sandwich looked pretty damn good, too!  In his words, "It was a man sandwich!"  It was the Delicatessen Reuben on Rye Sandwich with hand-sliced corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss and russian dressing.  The bartender told us that it was going to pretty huge, but delicious, and that he normally cannot finish it all.  Joel said "Challenge Accepted!"

And we had to try their Truffle Parmesan Fries, obviously.  I mean who could honestly resist them!

After leaving, I checked out their website, and was sad to say that we may have missed one of the coolest parts about the restaurant, their downstairs... Take a look...
