i’m really excited to meet with Jenna Zilincar of M. Studio to discuss some marketing and design ideas for my life.  haha.  and by my life i mean my jewelry, my blog, my etsy shop and the other half of melissa the spa services, facials, waxing, etc.  i’m hoping to take it all, pop it in the blender and come out with the world’s most delicious smoothie and without looking like the color of mustard and ketchup on a hot dog.  do your smoothies end up that color too?!??!

anyway… if you’re in need of some marketing genius get in touch with jenna.  she is super creative, smart, friendly and i believe she may even be able to work miracles.  we’ll see about that last one this afternoon!

not that you would know it… today i actually needed to put the air conditioning on!!!  temperature aside… leaves are turning and then falling.  my little shore town has emptied out.  our bakery has returned to its “winter” hours.  and i’m crafting up a storm for this year’s Sweet and Sinister Swap hosted by ArtsyMama!  i’m having so much fun with this years swap.  even with my busy schedule… work, school, family,and dogs!!! 😉  in preparing my sweet and sinister package, i visited my favorite antique center in englishtown, check out my sister Jenny’s blog, where she posts pics of this amazing place!  as soon as i have an assistant (jenny… hint hint) i’ll take photos of my FABULOUS finds… as well as some new items that will be up in my etsy shop soon!!!

so memorial day weekend is off to a fantastic start.  i’ve eaten either chocolate cake or ice cream for breakfast for about a week now.  if that doesn’t say holiday i don’t know what does… oh wait… yes i do…

“we” bought a grill at home depot the other night.  friday night’s at home depot… a lot of fun.  for real.  i can’t really think of anything to compare it to.  a wild time.  then to wegmans, to pick up burgers and dogs for grilling.  some ice cream.  frozen pizzas.  tabloids.  this was actually my first time grocery shopping anywhere other than target since moving into the new place.  well probably even before that so i’ll say a good couple months!!!

yesterday walt had to pick out his tux for the prom… not walts tux

that’s not it… we had the best time with the mini- conan o’brian they have working there… it took about 45 minutes for him to warm up to us and get our sarcasm… jack chilled with walt’s gold rope chain on…

jack in the gold rope

haha!!!  after that we decided to make the most of a beautiful day and get ice cream at naegles in ocean grove.  which then led to BUYING everything we saw at the “antique dealerships” in OG.  i found THE MOST ADORABLE new dog bed for jack… jack's new dog bed

if you’ve seen these before it’s even funnier!!!  it’s PERFECT!!!!  afterwards, we took the ’54 to the car wash, for a MUCH needed cleaning.  i felt awful, embarrassed, like a horrible person, driving it dirty.  why haven’t i taken better care of that little sweetie?!?!!  oh the night went really really late and actually ended up becoming an impromptu sleepover.  well, the driver fell asleep so they slept over.

today i’m drinking loads of coffee, taping off the bathroom, i HAVE to paint it this weekend.  i’m going to wake charley up in a bit.  we’ll grill some burgers and dogs.  then FIREWATER tonight!!!  i’m so excited.  we all are!!!  dancing and partying tonight!!!  woo hoo!!!

oh and this week/weekend brought some amazing and wonderful news… i’ll let jenny tell you all about that one!!!  and no, no one is having any babies or anything crazy like that!!!!  jenny – BLOG BLOG BLOG!!!
