Whilst I was in SLC hustling and networking, Biscuit Beauties (doesn’t that sound straight up raunchy!?) were in New York checking out the NYIGF.

I have trouble even looking at these pictures.


I am so jealous I couldn’t be there with them. I miss my Stina and Isabel so.


But I hear they found lots of good junk for Biscuit.


I went from SLC to Austin for THE loveliest wedding of our dear friends.greenpastures

Have any of you ever been here, in Austin? It is incredible.


Wild peacocks, beautiful old house. Green Pastures, y’all. tess-green-pastures-austinIt’s a restaurant the rest of the time. I am so sad I never knew of it when we were in Austin. Check it.

Then I got to arrive home to this:GrayDiptic

Thanks PapaDan for watching our girl!

And then I promptly exhibited symptoms of a powerful plague. I have fallen quite ill. My body has finally said enough. Luckily I have Maddie and two new ladies to help hold down the store and I am going to convalesce and try to enjoy it at least a little. Which would be easier if my throat wasn’t completely raw from coughing all night and day, but, is again easier because of medicated cough sizzerp.

Is this what the flu is this year? I keep hearing it is never ending, please tell me that is not so!?

    The hubs and I got married at Green Pastures!! Loveliest place ever, for certain, and tucked away in such a wonderful part of Austin! They have a Sunday brunch that will blow your mind.

    Yay! So glad I saw this post. Love Austin (I think we go every other weekend!) and always looking for new spots to have a great meal. Thanks for the post!

    Yes – that’s the flu! I had it over Xmas, totally totally brutal, takes about 2 weeks to fully recover – but you’ll get there. YAY for good trips and updates

    I just about whizzed myself over that neon dragon fabric.
    I knew of Green Pastures, but not that pea fowl glow in the dark.
    Best welcome gift. Ever.
    Get better soon, mi amiga!

    Love that fabric! I spotted it in a Raleigh fabric store just yesterday and fell in love with the bright colors.
