NYC and Martha Stewart

A couple of weeks ago I was happily surprised to get an invitation to Martha Stewart's blog party in her building in Manhattan! Jill came with me and we had a blast! I even had a chance to chat with Martha and give her something we made for her!

me and Martha Stewart :)

NYC

We stayed at the famous New Yorker hotel,
took taxis everywhere,
attended the party,
peeked inside one of Martha's studios (mega inspiration!)
met lots of fun bloggers,
including Allison, Beki, and Danielle,
chatted with some of Martha's editors and staff,
and ate lots of yummy food.

NYC

We also shopped at Anthropology (we don't have one in OK!),
met up with Sheylynn (Shey B) at the Statue of Liberty,
shopped at the famous B&H Photo (a DREAM!)
got a new camera and lens (STOKED!)
wandered around Times Square,
and saw Justin Timberlake shooting a movie (we think "Friends with Benefits" maybe?)
and basically just had a fab time :)

Thank you to Martha and her team for inviting us!
