eventful weekend!

a LOT went on this weekend (including my dunkin' donuts gift card design deadline for some new cards that unfortunately, i can't post yet until i get the ok from DD)....a HUGE thanks to my fab slogan writing family & friends :-) I *DONUT* know what i'd do without you!

other events of the weekend include melissa's birthday party, stalking mariah carey at the tribeca film festival with nick and breaking my glasses. Please note that i have been wearing glasses for 15 years and have never broken them. Today, with only a few hours till the most major deadline of my illustration career they broke. LOL. no worries though, they are now fixed.
here's a mariah pic:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MELISSA!





to my favorite pony- happy 25! (whoa)
xoxo, gossip girl
(you know you love me)
and i love you for fixing my grammatical errors every day. :-) and for ordering mcdonald's delivery with me even though it's down the block. and for letting me make yoga bags. and cause you're nice (most of the time). and cause we wear the same size shoes. and click "social drinker, maybe one or two" on our match.com profiles. and some other stuff that i can't type here because it will break the roommate code of conduct.
oh! and also cause you work the dvr for me (specifically because we both are possibly the only 20somethings who dvr the mary tyler moore show)
:-)
