I work for a jeweler. You probably don't know that I have every part time job The Quiet Corner has to offer. It makes for lots of fun adventures and a really confusing schedule. Anyway....she does house parties, especially around the holidays, and I went with her to the most recent event.

The problem with parties I don't throw, is I am notoriously difficult to feed. The last thing I wanted to do was tell a woman opening her home to us that I am gluten free and vegan and I tend not to drink wine....so I just hoped for the best. Can you tell that the woman who took the photo of me and Rachel does not have a problem drinking wine?
It turns out that I was right to pack a gf veggie wrap, a protein bar and a Cherries n' Berries Macrobar for the evening, but our hostess provided some appetizers that I could enjoy without suffering later for it.
Still, marinated olives, asparagus, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts and Prosecco (I said I tend not to drink wine, not that I never do) aren't really enough for a human being to live off of, so you'd best believe that I enjoyed the heck out of my veggie wrap during the drive home. Did I mention that I also don't go anywhere without emergency chocolate chip cookies? I felt so clever last Thursday! Maybe these gorgeous necklaces had something to do with it, though...
