Update

Well, the Strawberry Girl is still red and patchy-looking. It's better, which is a good sign. Unfortunately, one of the worst bits is around her left eye. It's a little puffy and red, making her look like she got into a fight! Poor thing - but she remains happy. It's a little itchy under her chin, since she keeps rubbing, but I am vigilantly coating her with cocoa butter and aquaphor and that's helping.

Otherwise, we had a nice weekend. I helped a friend buy a LOT of wedding makeup. She was starting from scratch, so had to get everything. She looks lovely, and will be a flawless, radiant bride. As I will be a gorgeous bridesmaid. Just have to go get the dress from the seamstress on Friday. We picked really pretty navy satin cocktail dresses with a little beading..then decided that the d├ęcolletage was over-the-top, and had a seamstress add a little drape of navy organza to deemphasize the top.

And we signed a lease on an apartment - Jackson Heights here we come!
(Now, I just have to pack...ugh!)

Aquaphor is the best invention ever. Sticky and nasty to use, but works like a charm. Poor little thing.

I DO NOT miss the days of renting. ugh. But, in NYC, you can't do much else. Packing stinks though.

Jackson Heights?!! Oh, I had such a burst of nostalgic longing for that nabe. Used to visit quite frequently when we were still new yorkers.
