I apologize for my absence from PBL for the last couple of days. Between work & packing up my life in suitcases, I didn't have much time to blog. I did find time yesterday to go see the film Juno. I LOVED the film and the soundtrack. In fact Kimya Dawson & The Moldy Peaches were blaring in my ipod for the duration of my flight out of LaGuardia. My favorite song of course is the Michael Cera/Ellen Page duet "Anyone Else But You".

Britney Spears has some competition this week...from her little sister. The adorable, sweet, & innocent Jamie Lynn Spears is Pregnant & K-Fed is the Father! Hahaha Just kidding!
The 16 year-old confirmed to O.K. magazine that she is pregnant with boyfriend, Casey Aldridge's, baby.
Here is a video of Jamie Lynn on David Letterman from 2005:
It is hard to believe that this is true & not some cruel joke! Good for Jamie-Lynn for taking an adult approach to the situation. Best of luck to her, and hopefully she has learned the importance of car seats. :)

This weekend I headed over to Bust Magazine's Crafttacular event to check out the cool vendors & to meet Amy Sedaris. I had her sign my copy of "I like you: Hospitality Under The Influence"
I also bought some ornaments to add to my tree, I bought this porcelin ornament at the Bust event, but I can't remember from who. If anyone recognizes it, please let me know because I would love to buy MORE!
I also stopped by Anthropologie to grab these two cuties (and a few of the glass ornaments hanging next to the snowman ornament pictured above)
I couldn't resist!
We also purchased a cute journal from ex-libris anonyomous.
My favorite booths were as follows:

My boyfriend actually emailed this photo to me yesterday and the difference between him and I is that I first noticed her eyeliner...:) Read her interview here!
Last night I waded through the tourist trap that is midtown during the holidays to snap these photos. I snapped away until my camera battery died and then warmed up in Starbucks with a Soy Chai Tea Latte. Here are some of my best shots:
Radio City Music Hall all lit up
Nutcracker Statue outside the UBS building
abandoned coffee & city streets
night skating (isn't that family holding hands so cute!!!???)
