nyc via instagram

Happy Monday my loves!  I am reporting to you from back in Chicago... at the office... on my lunch break... on about two hours of sleep.  Wheeeeeeee!  I took a red eye flight and was at the airport at 4:30am, boarding at 5:45am, and landed in Chicago at 7:20am.  I took the train straight to the office so I am looking crazy at my desk with two big bags of luggage next to me.  But it is all worth it!  I had an absolute fun-tastic time in NYC over the weekend.  I feel like I did so much and also got a lot accomplished.  I met some oober awesome and fabulous people at the event I was invited to.  The event was held by and sponsored by,, and  =) is a site where you can join and stalk your favorite bloggers and save products and your current obsessions from blog sites into your account.  Definitely check it out!  I felt so lucky to be in a room with such fun and amazing bloggers that all shared their experiences and advice.  

But the most notable moment for me was meeting Wendy from Wendy's Lookbook!  Her YouTube videos are sick-tastic and so clever and inventive!  And yea.. she is just as pretty in person as she is in her photos.  But to top it all off, she is the biggest sweetie pie in the world!  (I even got to take a photobooth picture with her... seen below)  If you are reading this love, thanks so much for being so welcoming and sweet to me.  It was a pleasure meeting both you and MM that night.  I hope I maintained somewhat of a great composure (although I'm pretty sure you two saw me start to wobble) since I was both totally in awe and totally tipsy.  Yikes!  I used wine to get over my nerves very EARLY on in the night.  Hehe... I'll definitely go more into detail of my weekend in NYC and share with you guys all the fun photos I got to take thanks to my awesome photog... Papa DOS.  I love that my dad loves to tag along and take photos for me.  Woot!  But here are the snapshots of what I like to call... "NYC via Instagram" - come find me on instagram (drunkonshoes) if you really want to see all the random things I take photos of but don't necessarily post anywhere else.  LOL.

More to come from my NYC adventures so stay tuned!  Lots of photos to go through!  Ack!  Once again thanks to everyone for supporting me.  It's been a fun and crazy ride and I could not have done it without everyone's motivation and love.  A big thank you and loads of hugs and kisses to one of my best friends and her roomie for letting us crash at her place all weekend and also for always showing me how much fun and culture there is in New York.  NYC in short was... UH-MAZE-BALLZ!  Can't wait to share the rest with you all!  <3
