irene was no big deal here in raleigh, and we ventured down to wrightsville beach to inspect and no problems to report there as well. some down limbs, it got gusty upinherr for a little while, power out for a hot minute, but all in all, irene was overblown. (that’s weather humor folks)
i opened this one night before bed and stayed up til 4am to finish it. good book.
i enjoyed doing a little shopping for jamie meares and other clients whilst at the beach. i went to a few of my very favorite places with this gem at the very top of the list.
paysage is a yummy luxurious decorating is delicious boutique that is brimming with inspiring vignettes and so many pretty little moments.
if you’re local you should definately go meet all of the paule marrot pieces in person and ask for autographs. (fame)
next door is arlie moon where i pick up claus porto soaps and beach days laundry detergent and vacuum balls from the good home co. (yes, vacuum balls – we have discussed before so don’t look at me that way).
both products are a must-have and there’s NO where local to find them, BUT furbdeux will have both. booya!
and next next door is brasserie du soleil, my most favorite french restaurant with the world’s best french onion soup and escargot. the back patio is the place to sit – not only is it lovely with the bistro chairs and peach marble tables, but it’s so loud inside you’re bound to stroke out from the noise. ps this cat lives there and has a cat igloo/condo out back
and so french. look at him judging me.
also, i’m just as excited as you are about wearing fall boots. i took my fryes in this afternoon to get a little tune up before the season premier. my thoughts are: these paige fryes are worth every penny, but good lord are they hard to get on and off. it’s a two man show with a side of claustrophic panting everytime. all my efforts had broken two of the little tabs on the sides.
in fact i enjoyed my boots so much last year i am considering adding a second pair to the repertoire. these do it for me, but i don’t want to look like a label hooker.
i could probably get over it. (being a hooker, but not the boots)
in conclusion, i would like to tell you that things are moving along swimmingly with furbdeux. keila and i had a come to jesus talk tonight where i concluded that this endeavor is go big or go home, and i’m not that great at hanging around the house. so i’m doing this thing up like nothing has ever been done before, so thanks beyonce for stealing my thunder, but i’m also birthing something pretty special.
orders are showing up everyday and we’re itching to get everything unpacked and furbled. today we shrieked for at least 45 minutes while we opened up our new jonathan adler boxes and THEN approved the final version of our custom tunics. looking like opening day will be 10/22. start clearing out your house.
