DUDE!

This man right here gets spouse of the year. 
and this man right here gets first runner up and maybe Mr. Congeniality!
Know why?!  Because Staci and I found the GARMENT DISTRICT!!!! WHHHHhaaaatttt?!
Definitely not what most people get fired up about when they are in New York.  

But duuuuude.  THIS IS MY NIRVANA!  Can you say velvet ribbon?!  Huh?  In EVERY color?!  
This is one little sampling of buttons.  
I think I just wet my pants! 

Don handed me a paper bag and said, "Melanie, Breathe.  Just breathe!"
I have loved sequins since I was a little kid.

Rivets and snaps and closures, oh my!!

I think I am going to pass out.  Someone get me a fan!

You need to have a setup like that in your new house. In NY shopping for ribbons. I love it!

What a blast! Jake sure was keeping company with you all. He has his watchful eye and protective hand (up Don's sleeve, if I recall correctly) firmly on his family. Can't wait to hear more about all the fun. Are there any items left at the garment district, Mo?

So glad you had such a great time in New York! I have only been there once, but it was a great experience. I think it is a city whose energy you could feel even if you were deaf, and blind. It is unlike any other city I have ever been to. Can't wait to hear more about your trip!

Go ahead and buy you one of those empty suitcases on the street corner cause you know you will never get all your new belongings home in the suitcases you took!!! I LOVE NYC... Michael and I went a couple of years ago and acutally got to go on a tour of the NASDAQ and to an IPO party. I know you all are having a blast...I can't wait to go again!!!

Carrie said...
