Not sure how I feel about these, interesting to say the least!

Usually, I'd be all over something with the intention of being such a sweet reminder for an expectant Dad but for some reason these creep me out a little.

What do you think?

Valentine's is one month from today!

We're already half way into January - unbelievable...

Since we have no choice but to carry on, here's a sweet valentine.
Remember how great it feels to find something in the mailbox other than bills? Surprise all your sweet friends on Feburary 14th


An "awww" moment

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Today I got an email from my wedding florist. Yes, from 2,357 days ago, but who's counting?

I loved working with her & still refer her to friends & strangers back home even though I'm out of state. She did such a fabulous job for us, the flowers were truly one of my favorite things about our wedding. She's still going strong in floral & she also has a book - "99 Things You Wish You Knew Before Planning Your Wedding". Brides - you definitely need to own it. It's available on
iTunes - how easy is that?!

Also, the 99 series is up for addition to Oprah's book club - you can help!

Go here, click the green VOTE in the middle of the page and click "yes" - again, how easy is that?! Much appreciated!

Because I'm feeling nostalgic, some floral pics from our wedding:

all together now, "awwwww"

Honey & Jam blog

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

oooh, I'm so in love with this blog. As you may or may not know, I do not claim to cook well, or at all...But I do appreciate people who do, and especially people who take such pretty pictures of it! If the name weren't sweet enough 'Honey & Jam' - the story is even sweeter, 19 year old Hannah is oozing with talent!

Just look at these pancakes! Too special for a table, they scream for an outdoor balcony breakfast nook, or a country porch on a dewy morning, or a sandy, breezy beach breakfast...aaaahh

I'm on a reeeal Matryoshka Doll kick in 2010. I've always loved these adorable nesting nellies but recently you'd think my new years resolution was to expand my collection of them like a madwoman! Maybe it's because they're popping up more often these days, here are a few I'm super excited about:

The most modern, fantastic set of matryoshka dolls I've ever seen!
 A handmade card from my Etsy shop.
A flash drive - seriously.adorable.

Measuring cups from Anthropolgie.
Honey flavored vodka in the cutest bottle ever

I'm not into skate boarding but if I were this would be mine:
