Happy Friday friends.
If you’re like me, you’re feeling like fall. Chunky sweaters, short boots in my online shopping carts and man, I can’t get enough of everything pumpkin.
Last week I made a quick trip to NYC, Brooklyn to be exact, where we walked the town with cameras in hand taking photos with the small group attending the NYC Click Retreat.
If you haven’t experienced fall in NYC, it’s something to put on your bucket list stat.
Big thanks to AirBnB who housed our group in this amazing loft owned by the incredible Shell. Totally homey for a 5,000 square foot space. Yes, we all had dreamy bedrooms with super cool bedside lighting. Just take a look at the photos.
Blurb Books sponsored me for Click Retreat (thanks Blurb!) and their walking tour with 3 professional photographers was one of the highlights. I don’t know that any of their expertise rubbed off, but maybe one day.
FoodieCrush in Print?
Speaking of Blurb, I’m thinking of releasing FoodieCrush magazine in print. Would you be interested in buying a print version? What would be a reasonable price for someone like you? Please share in the comments below.

But wait. These cookies are just too cute and even my lame decorating skills could probably pull them off.

The perfect burger, according to them.
Healthy breakfast cookies? I’m in!
After several scheduled attempts, this week my husband was in the hospital for a hip replacement. Unreal how quickly he was in and out and is now on the mend. Only 8 more weeks of him gimping around the house as my sous chef. He may never go back to work. Either that, or he will really, really want to. Hey, it could go either way.
Smudge had to selfie it out, naturally. I love this photo.
And naturally, I had to make him Chicken Noodle Matzo Ball Soup. It’s our go-to-get-better-meal. Get the recipe here.
I met and spent a lot of time at the Click Retreat with this Instagrammer. If you don’t follow her yet, get prepared to be inspired and give out a lot of, “Awwww, that is adorable”-s.
And this Instagram gal too. What a life she leads! Magazine editor, travel blogger and she gets to meet every single actor on Nashville. I could live in her totally fashionable, jet setting shoes.
While on the airplane to NYC, I noticed my row mate playing this game on her iPhone. Do you have it? I do now and it’s kind of addicting.

Because here’s the proof that multi-tasking isn’t what it’s cracked up to be.
As I was moving into week 2 of adding yet more decorations, my mother in law looked at me quizically and asked if we were going to have a Halloween party. “Um, no. I’m just decorating.”
I may have to rethink that so I can amp it up with some of these 19 clever Halloween party decorating DIYs. I LOVE those spider pods!
and since Pinterest is the new Martha…
What your Halloween would look like if you celebrated it on Pinterest. I love the buffet man! So gross!
We’re going to a Halloween party and I’m totally taking these as my foodie contribution.
