i blinked

it's seriously like i blinked & *POOF* it's already november. 
so much has happened in these last few months, since i last posted. 
good stuff, great stuff even, i just never found made time to write about it or post pictures. 
bad, bad blogger.

welp, as i wrote about here, my sister & i opened an etsy shop & have had 90 sales in about 100 days.
not too shabby.
as my friend marli says..."i ain't mad 'actcha."

we hope to eventually get into boutiques around the dallas area (even outside of!), but this feat will take some time and patience. 

in the meantime, i have been to dc, new orleans (again) & houston for "something wicked," a halloween music festival. dc was with my mom & sister. our mom had a conference in alexandria, virginia so we tagged along and then when it was over we all headed over to dc to explore the city for a few days by bike. great girls trip!

here are some photos from our trip, if you would like to see:
(sorry some of the photos are kind of fuzzy, some are from my camera & some are from my iphone)

mel & i in our the sour melan flower halos about to board the subway :)
 the subway looked like the batcave!!!
gorgeous day in alexandria, virginia #nofilter
 we got to know this map REAL well
 us on our city bikes
at the lincoln memorial with the washington monument in the background
we went flea marketing...
 we had to stop by baked & wired to see what the fuss was about (the line was redic!), plus it was recommended by a friend. it did not disappoint...think GIANT ice cream sandwiches.
 surf & turf meal
 in the heart of chinatown, dc
 yeah...if only... 
 we visited the holocaust museum, which touched me all over again. 
i had been once before, but it hits hard every time. 
 we rode our bikes all the way up capitol hill just to dine at ted's bulletin so we could have their famous homemade poptarts for dessert, again, a recommendation from a friend, & it was SO worth it!

my new orleans trip was with my sister and my dad, who flew in from israel for the north american spine society meeting. mirelle & i just wanted to spend a few extra days with him in nola before he came to spend his last few days in dallas before flying back to israel. we prob wont see him again until may..

our beautiful hotel room @ the ambassador in the warehouse district of the french quarter
 out to shop in nola
 heading to dinner
birthday dinner with dad
mel & i love magazine street :)
fancy dinner with dad & his collegues
 bathroom photoshoot, of course
 when you see a trolley bench, you have to pose on it!
 the joke of the trip was how WE ALL kept taking pics of our meals, so i caught my dad and his colleague in action!
 bourbon street
 southwest

houston was my most recent trip & i went with my hubbie, sister & her boyfriend. we had purchased tickets to "something wicked" months ago, when dekel & i first got to the states, and i'm so glad we did! the show was amazing, TIESTO was amazing & we had the best time roadtrippin, dancing & dressing up. it was really entertaining to see all the people dressed up

on our way!
 @ chili's in our sour mini headbands

 dek made this disgusting gash-looking thing that he stuck to his cheek so it looked like the side of his face was exposed, it was really realistic and gross, but i would kiss him no matter what! :)
 my "marley" outfit, made by me :)
 the concert was a blast!
 love
 some fun alice in wonderland characters we ran into
 we wanted our outfits to be similar, but not identical.
i think we nailed it. 
loved it.

till next time!
