I'm back from New Jersey! (In case you didn't know, I went to Jersey for 8 days with my friend Heidi and her freaking adorable twins to visit her family.) It was a nice vacay, and I got to go into Manhattan twice! It was fun, especially because I'd never been there before. Now I'm back, and the real work begins!!

I've got a deadline--10 necklaces and as many earrings as my fat little fingers can make for a party this Saturday at Talloni of Greenville, a local shoe boutique where my wares are peddled. Plus, I'm donating a necklace for a charitable silent auction (that I still have to make), have a special choir rehearsal on Saturday from 10-12, am singing for a wedding in two weeks, and still need to find a "real" job for next school year!!! Eeeeeek!!

But I guess it's a good kind of crazy--the kind where I get paid. Always nice. I'm working on some new designs that I'm really excited about and some bridal jewelry for Mia Alexander Salon & Spa. Well, I'm actually watching Celebrity Fit Club right now, so....I should probably get to work on making baubles!!

Before I go, please keep my blog friend Shan from Design Gal & Her Handyman in your thoughts--she has recently been dealing with some tough things--her grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer and now her cat Kiki has also been diagnosed with cancer. Head over and give her some blog love.

REAL TALK: I'm famous

Not really, but apparently I'm front-page news in G-Vegas! I woke up this morning to a voicemail from my sweet mother-in-law, letting me know my visage was gracing the front page of the Greenville News. 1. I didn't realize it was going to run on the front page! Eeek! 2. I look a) fat and b) fat, but I guess them's the breaks!

Also, I have explosive diarrhea. I SAID REAL TALK, PEOPLE. This is what you get. So let's just say I'm not going to make it to church today. Not that they would want me there anyway; apparently there's a stomach bug going around.

Oh, here's the link to the story if you're so inclined:

I'll be in the bathroom if anyone needs me.

Christ on a cracker

Ugh.....there is a reason I don't go out anymore. It's because I'm OLD, and I can't drink like I used to. It's 2:30 in the afternoon, and I just now feel well enough to get out of bed.

One of my best friends from college and her boyfriend came down from Philly for the weekend and we went out last night. I'm dumb, and was drinking as though I had actually eaten enough food to call a meal. WRONG. It's Friday, and I'm trying to be a good Catholic, so I fasted and didn't have any meat. Add alcohol into that mix and you get one drunk ass (me). I did eat one full meal, only like an idiot it was at lunchtime. Was I thinking ahead? No. Do I regret it? YES.

We had an awesome time, and I'm so glad we went out, but I am never drinking that much again. Stupid stupid stupid.

When we got home last night, I threw up in the sink. Yes, the sink. Then I threw up again this morning. The whole bathroom smells like vomit and I can't go in there without feeling like I want to hurl.

Yes, I am 27. I am not in college anymore.

There, I said it.

I'm going to put on a gas mask and rubber gloves so I can clean the sink and then hopefully take a shower without throwing up.

Hope everyone's having a better Saturday than me!
