I have been following Tré since the early days of her wonderful tumblr, The White Elephant in the Room. Now that her book has been published, I thought it would be fun to host a tumblr-centric reading/book club with the author herself. I’ve been in touch with Tré and
we are trying to finalize a date we are set for Monday, August 5th!
It’s a great chance to meet other NYC tumblrs and eat, drink, laugh (and cry) together. Reply or message me if you are interested in attending.
If we outgrow my apartment, I have an alternate event space I can use— so spread the word AND GO BUY THE BOOK!
This week’s manicure: OPI My Very First Knockwurst with Esssie Good As Gold dots on my right ring finger and left pinkie.
Feeling super summery today!
Dinner: M made shrimp and blue cheese grits with balsamic onions and Andouille sausage. Not the most photogenic meal, but damn it was delicious. This recipe is based on a dish from Tiburon Grille in Atlanta where I put in some serious time as a waitress and hostess. We don’t vary much from the original recipe and it has been a standard in our household for many years.
Bouchon Bakery has the best iced tea in all of NYC. (And the ham & cheese baguette is pretty good too.)
Dinner: Spice rubbed pork tenderloin, roasted sweet potatoes, fava beans

Happy Father’s Day Pete! You remain as cool as ever. So thankful for my awesome dad. LOVE!
What is up with summer flight prices? I’m trying to get to Oklahoma for a family reunion on July 20th and M wants/needs to go with me. I’m not paying 1200. for us to fly into OKC. That’s crazy.
This is a fun pedicure color. It’s got to stay fresh for M’s surprise birthday trip next week.
The ballet paw placement. What a weirdo.
Total score at the UWS Flea Market. Vintage Longchamp in near perfect condition!
