Katie's 30th

I have been neglecting my blog because I have been working so much! But one thing I've been meaning to blog about is Katie's birthday! You know birthdays are very important to me but zero birthdays are even more special so when I stumbled upon this little project I knew it would be perfect for Katie's birthday (please forgive me blog world because I can't remember where I saw the original post being that I look at about 1000 websites everyday!) So my (not really mine but I think we have established that) project went something like this:
1. get a funny/cute/mildly embarrassing photo of a loved one
2. have it blown up (we did it at Kinko's and it was about $60)
3. have all of the following supplies: spray mount, poster board, lots of pretty stamps, address labels, vellum envelopes, an exato knife and husband to use as free labor.
4. mount the photo on to the poster board
5. measure and make a grid (we wanted the photo to be in 30 pieces since it was Katie's 30th birthday)
6. cut the poster into 30 post card puzzle pieces
7. type out address labels
8. hunt down 30 friends and family members and have them write messages to the birthday girl
9. make sure everyone gets them in the mail in a timely manner
10. enjoy know your friend who loves getting cards will recieve 30 surprise letters during her birthday week and gets to put together a "postcard puzzle"
I also had the picture put on a birthday cake so that everyone that wrote a card could see what the post card puzzle looked like. So fun was had by all. Happy birthday Katie!

What is it about a plate of pretty desserts that just melts away a bad mood? I think this year I'm going to look into a cake decorating class... anyone want to join me? But then I reconsider when I see the art that is produced at some bakeries. Namely Maggie Austin Cake in D.C.- serious stuff people. Truly art. Yummy carb filled art.

Kind of obsessed...

with my new motorcycle boots!! I really wanted the Jimmy Choo lovelies but I actually couldn't be more thrilled the my darling little frye engineer boots! I plan to wear them just about every single day and find myself day dreaming about outfits to wear with them! So tell me what do you think of them? They might be even more adorable if had that Chanel bag to go with them!!

loved loved loved it!!


Today we went to the fair with my friend Tiffany and her daughter Briton. Usually I hate the fair: the noise, the um.... interesting people and fried foods but we had a really great time. Max and Briton were really cute together they just seemed to get along. Also a sheep sneezed on Maxwell and we saw pigs spooning not necessarily everyday occurrences for us.

You ARE special...

so why not celebrate it? I love this little plate from palomas nest. What a sweet surprise on a birthday or even to celebrate small victories like 100% on a test. I like the idea of celebrating the everyday things and should do it more often and I do think that this little lovely will be a tool to help me do just that.

I heart J M

My love for John Mayer has been called many things: funny, embarrassing, and even a birth defect (I'm looking at you guys: Ann & Meggan). So obviously I went to see my love on Tuesday when he played at Usana Amphitheatre and obviously I took a few hundred pictures however I dropped my IPhone today. It sadly shattered into about a million pieces. I also hate to inform you my little bloggerinas there was some pretty amazing/embarrassing videos that the world will never see. However, my darling hubby did snap like 3 pics so here they are in all their glory. You should know we had maybe the best time ever and our seats were pretty great. Oh also remembering how much fun it was is better than having evidence of it anyway..... right?
