#Bowtie365 - #Day345

Doing my first (of many) product shoots for the 1stdibs RL site at our warehouse in LIC. Grabbed lunch nearby and ate one of the messiest burgers (portobello - only veg burger option) of my life at WilliamsBurger in Sunnyside, Queens. Other than that (& the weird chalk smell inside) it was great!

#Bowtie from the restaurant matchbook with bent matches bursting to form the bow. Twenty days left folks!

#Bowtie365 - #Day344

My boring navy Target piggy bank contracted swine flu and died this evening. Prior to his death, he asked the gods above to resurrect him as an ultra bright & glossy candy apple red pig of the future.

#Bowtie365 - #Day343

Back in NYC / the 11375! Didn't go grocery shopping but we were able to nosh on leftovers from our Sound of Music Live shin dig.

Edible #bowtie on a cracker from two squares of Trader Joes Creamy Toscano Cheese Soaked in Syrah (delicious) and a small dollop of fig butter (also Trader Joes, also crazy delicious).

#Bowtie365 - #Day342

Last night in Tampa. Showed Casey the Apollo Beach manatee viewing center (with no manatees as it's unreasonably hot out) and toured around Brandon. Then, spent the night catching up with the parents and relaxing before our flight tomorrow.

Holiday #bowtie stacked out of clear solo cups inside red and green ones (which are in the shape of a 5-foot #Christmas tree) with my parent's #artificial X-mas tree in the background.

#Bowtie365 - #Day341

Tonight was the annual Ruiz Family Christmas Party / Boat Parade! I've been missing this party for 3 years (it went on hiatus while our family house was being rented) and so happy it's finally a reoccurring shindig.

Holiday #bowtie from some garage sale Christmas lights on our deck where we watched the boats. Way to go pops!

#Bowtie365 - #Day340

At home visiting the family in Tampa after a missed flight and general MTA craziness. Already hit up Publix (where shopping is a pleasure), Toys R Us (my nieces and nephew are gonna freak!), and Brandon Mall (yikes).

#Bowtie from my mom's Matryoshka dolls aka Russian nesting dolls back at home. Excited for the family holiday party tomorrow!

#Bowtie365 - #Day339

After months of planning, we were finally able to have our Sound of Music LIVE viewing party (Go Carrie!).

#Bowtie inside of our Amy's Bread bowls (which held homemade tomato basil soup from our Vitamix) from a kale and pomegranate seed salad (after the soup was finished).

#Bowtie365 - #Day338

Came home with an urgent need for hot cocoa with whipped cream. Unfortunately, my mug was too small to produce a decent-looking bow tie before the heat made the cream all floppy and runny.

Plan B #bowtie on a Christmas plate from whipped cream before being licked clean by the fat kid inside me.

#Bowtie365 - #Day337

Waiting for the R train at 5th Avenue / 59th Street while streaming the new Britney Jean album. It's a bit of a mess (no Sound of Music LIVE soundtrack...) but as a fan I need to learn the songs.

#Bowtie365 - #Day336

Heading to Florida on Friday so I'm prepping some presents for my darling nieces and nephew.

#Bowtie atop my first wrapped present of the season, underneath the tree, and ready to be ripped to pieces by little hands.
