Thursday Randoms

Can you believe that it's already Thursday?! I sure can't. I thought it was Wednesday all morning! Haha!

I am mad at myself because I just bought maple nut fudge and the hugest pecan turtle (I'm talking this thing is the size of my hand!) from this chocolate store that is set up in our building for a fair. Ugh!! Every time someone in the building has one of these fairs (think lots of local businesses, candle people, a lady that makes bags, jewelry people, pampered chef, etc.) this chocolate store is right there when I get off the escalator, and I always really want something. Today I have been having a crappy morning so I gave in! Not a good idea when I am now +1 due to my birthday weekend festivities. Oh well, this fudge is amazing!!

Guess what? We now have our bedroom furniture! Yes, we ordered it almost 8 weeks ago and just got it! It was supposed to be here at the end of July, but they just kept pushing it back. Finally yesterday I called, and the girl said "oh, yeah, it's all in" No one even called us to let us know! So last night we picked it up and set it up! It's a little big for our bedroom, but I love it! We have so much storage that I have empty spaces! I should probably buy more clothes so that I don't have any empty spaces. I'll take and post pictures sometime soon, I'm sure.

Okay, so now that I'm married, I think I need new personal stationery. I LOVE stationery, and I like it to be personalized. There are lots and lots of websites you can go to. My two favorites are Expressionery and Vista Print. But, this time I'm wanting something a little more, well, personal. Have you all ever heard of Ashley Brooke Designs? I believe that a total of 3 blogs I follow have had her create something for them, and they are all so amazing! And if you go to her website, you will see that she does her own custom artwork! So I'm thinking I want to order something, but I don't know what I want to do. I do know that I just want flat cards, no fold over stuff. But then I get stuck. The way I see it, I have 3 choices. I could have her draw just me, I could have her draw me, Lee, Isabelle and Zoe (yes, she can even draw dogs!), or I could have her do a monogram of my initials. Ugh! It's so hard!! I really like the family one, but usually when I send notes, it's just from me, Lee isn't included. And it's not like he's over there sending his own notes to people, so he wouldn't even be using them! So now I'm thinking that maybe I'll have her do one of just me, and then once we start having kids, I can have her do something else of the whole family, baby included. Yes, I think I've made up my mind. Thank you for listening :)

Happy Thursday!!

I love personal stationary, too! When I got married, I had my Mum design and calligraph a monogram for me and Sammy. I didn't change my name, so we decided to do our first initials and an ampersand (L&S). We used the monogram on our wedding invites and all that fun stuff and I absolutely love it. Anyway, we had it thermographed in chocolate brown ink onto thick gorgeous white cards, which I used to write thank you notes after the wedding, and still use today for any sort of note that goes out from the two of us. You should definitely do something fun for you and Lee!

In this wonderful life... said...

So I came into work about 5 minutes late this morning (ok mroe like 15 minutes late) because HEIDI MONTAG was being interviewed on the radio! HAHAHA! I couldn't help but think of you and Lee getting to see your neighbor's Pl*yboy! HAHA! I'm laughing about that story all over again!
