oh i am full!!!  a recap… it’s been snowing like mad these past few weeks here at the jersey shore!  we currently have almost 2 feet out there.  and what do i do while i’m snowed in… EAT!!!  oh between bacon wrapped hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls, home made pizza, tilapia with broccoli and rice and having just put down the spoon from my last bite (hopefully for the rest of the night) of warm brownies and vanilla ice cream… i am happy to be wearing such loose pants!  ahhhh.  so while i was eating these delicious brownies i got an awesome email from a fantastic photographer,  Brandi Grooms Johnson.  she was letting me know that she had blogged about my etsy shop and the jewelry i had made for a friend’s wedding.  SO COOL!!!  Brandi was featured on rocknrollbride.com recently, as well a few pictures of my jewelry ended up there along with her!  thanks so much brandi!!!  here’s the best photo ever taken of me 😉

so i’ll be making some fun fun earrings and other jewelry items to list this week!!!

while some things were drying, i decided to make blueberry-banana-pancakes!  i picked up this wacky pancake in a spray can the other day and haven’t had a chance to use it.  i also had a bunch of organic bananas and blueberries just about to go to waste… voila!  so so good!  the trick with the spray-cakes is to use a BUNCH of it and treat it like an omlet not a pancake!  yeah i know, strange.  D-lish!!!

tastes better than it looks!!!
