5 years later

Today marks the day my husband and I had our first date! We went to see a fabulous Modest Mouse concert and ate yummy cuban food. Now we're off to celebrate by going to see Funny People! I've been counting down the days until this movie came out, I love Judd Apatow!

The lovely Bells

I had the pleasure of working on Lacey + Josh's wedding invitations and wedding day stationery. Lacey sent me these lovely photos their photographer took of their program and placecards I designed for them. The couple had a beautiful wedding on the farm and it looked like an amazing celebration! Congrats to the Bells!

Obviously, you're not a golfer.

I recently watched one of my favorite movies, The Big Lebowski after not watching it for years. God I love it. It then got me thinking that Cracked Designs is lacking in bowling cards. So, I'm workin' on it. soon....

Call me Captain

Milwaukee, ahh, I can smell the beer from here.

Yay for Adam!

Last night Adam and I had the pleasure of setting sail out on Lake Michigan. It was my first time on a sail boat....and I freakin' loved it. You can be expecting more sailing and boat cards in the near future.

Cool Kids

So it is true that I have babies on the brain. And once I saw the coolest kids and infant clothes ever on the Heavy Rotation website, I want a baby even more!

First of all, Heavy Rotation has some of the coolest shirts possibly in the world! And even better..they're from Milwaukee! Holla! Visit their website to buy some of these gems. Their kids and infant clothes are called 'Mini Rotation', how awesome is that!?

Furni Love

I love the Furni website. I recently purchased one of the sweet 80's inspired watches (which I previously blogged about...) They have some totally awesome stuff on here, you should check it out!

I'm a sucker for True Blood

I have recently become addicted to the HBO show 'True Blood'. But what I really love are their new ads for the new season. They are so smart! For a second, they almost had me believing you could buy TruBlood.

Gettin' some Love

This is a little belated, but the totally awesome blog, Holy Matrimony! recently blogged about our custom and signature collection wedding invitations. It sure was nice! Check it out here!
