my new stamp / Unique Day 1 (sans sleep!) / new gluten free PB&J sandwich cookies! / Unique Day 2 (with 8 hrs of sleep, big difference in appearance I think)

What a week! Unique LA was much more easy going this time around, but I still had lots of last minute work to do. On Friday night I didn't get one wink of sleep and stayed up until we got home from the show on Saturday. I can't recall the last time I pulled an all nighter, but it's infinitely more fun/easier when you're doing something you love and not homework.

As always, I have to thank Gary for all his help.  While "Hurricane Sara" went through the apartment he would clean up after me and feed me. And on top of that he helped me man the table all weekend long without one single complaint!

I also have to thank my brother Alex for coming by both days to bring us food and keep us company! And thank you to my buddies Laura and Chris, Erin, Margaret, and Shannon. It really makes the weekend fly by when you have friends to lean on and make you laugh. I also got to meet a blog reader/instagram friend, which was so awesome. Thanks for your support,  Alexis!

I'll be back in the kitchen with a new cake this week (so excited about this one, even if I can't eat it! More on that later though).
