{Pantone Plus Series, coated color bridge}

I'm spring-cleaning my portfolio today.
Also designing biz cards for a very talented interior designer.

I'd be lost without my color bridge,
a big hug & kiss to my husband for the great birthday gift!

weekend project

I'm going to beautify these pieces this weekend
{if the weather cooperates}
the bench gets a colorful cushion
& the cabinet a fresh coat of cottage-white paint with some fancy handles

husband was in a pretty scary car accident yesterday. 
he's okay, poor car is not.
it really puts everything into perspective.
i don't know what i would do without my best friend.

{I love you. and our silliness. xo.}

happy bday miss sara

my gal, sara marie, celebrated her 25th birthday today! we met in 7th grade and have been the sara/hs ever since! 

a run-on sentence for you...

potato wedges & pepsi, dive competitions, lake windsor, steve&doug, plastic cups, mr porter, mr alfonso, spring break, cat vaca, there goes martin, breaking & entering, the bachelor, rollerblading, runway shows, steak n' shake. you know what to do.

{i'm positive there are many more lil' words that remind me of our adventures, but my brain is tired. forgive me.}

{also, i'm pretty sure we have zero photos together in my current state (brunette)}

I hope your 25th was your best birthday yet, may all of our dreams come true! ILU.

{be-bop and I; birthday morning}

{sissy. woodfield mall = bday}

{mama: i love you.}

{flowers from my mister}

Yesterday was my 25th birthday! Whattup 25. In my house, birthdays are the longest celebrated holiday. On average, they last about 2 weeks or longer. I mean, comon' it's the celebration of being birthed, probably the most hardcore workout any of us have ever had. I'd say all of us deserve a 2+ week celebration.

Tonight, I'm having birthday dinner & cake at Tutto Pasta

I'll be surrounded by most of my friends & family - my other half is away at drill this weekend,  so we'll be celebrating again next week! Wahoo for birthdays!
