Hearing from all of you who got The Pretty Dish those of you that were literally waiting for the amazon delivery – it was amazing!

And last night we had a launch party at Floor 2. It was SO fun! When my first book launched, I was at a signing in Florida. I knew that for this one, I wanted to be HOME. This is normally a post I would share over on my crumbs page, but I couldn’t help sharing it here since you were a big part of it!

We started with the signature cocktail – rosé all day! Um, it’s a mix of tequila AND rosé. Hello, that is me. In a drink.

It was a cocktail/snacks party (is there any better kind?) that included mini smash burgers, oyster tartines (OMG), oxtail empanadas with green goddess dressing, caramelized onion, goat cheese and bacon flatbread annnnnd of course, cheese and charcuterie. I wish that I could say I took a thousand pictures, but I didn’t! I couldn’t! I just enjoyed the night and it was such a blast. I did swipe some of these from instagram stories though!
