Today's post is short and sweet. We have a wedding to get ready for! Happy wedding day to our best friends Jake and Erika. We love you more than anything. We are so excited to be standing with you on the most special and important day of your lives. And so, your adventure begins. I don't want to ruin the ending for you but I think we all know you will live happily ever after.
Time just got away from me today, hence the late post. I got to talk with my mom on the phone and once we get going there is no stopping us. We always have something to catch up on. My parents are coming to visit in a little over a week! I can't wait. Everything I know about DIY projects I've learned from them so I'm dying to get their help on a few of the projects on my list while they are out here.
What I really wanted to show you was this incredible baby shower invitation designed by the lovely lady behind Zig and Zag. I've looked at it about five times already. I just can't get over how good it is. I was inspired so much by it that I contacted her asking about the design process and if she had any tips to share. She was kind enough to reply back with some helpful information that I can't wait to try on my next design project. If you have any experience with taking a drawing and turning it into digital art work, I would love to hear your process too!

You probably already figured, but I watch a lot of HGTV. My favorite show is Property Brothers. Over the weekend I saw an episode where the living room wall was decorated with mint accents. It looked so perfect. I am now completely in love with mint. My favorite ice cream is cookies and cream mint so let's face it, it was only a matter of time.
Photojojo does it again! They always come up with great photography accessories. This one is called the Photorito Lens Wrap. The protective "tortilla" wraps around your lens burrito-style. Sounds pretty appetizing to me. Can I have some guacamole on the side please?
The desktop wallpaper on our computer usually features a favorite picture one of us has taken, a photo from our wedding, or most recently our puppy Pixel.
Recently I have seen a lot of fun backgrounds available as free downloads that have some pretty great designs; so I thought I would share a few of my favorites.

|Van Gogh Quote from Oh My Dear|
Vincent Van Gogh has gotten a reputation of being one of those crazy and strange sorts of artists. That probably has something to do with the fact that he cut off his own ear. Yeah, that's pretty strange. I do however think this quote from him is quite wise.
Aren't these paintings so fun? Katie from Paperfashion had the idea to take everyday food items and simplify them as much as possible. It's not as simple as you may think. This would be a perfect afternoon exercise to refresh your creative juices.

It's official: we get to bring our new puppy home on Saturday! We can't wait to add the little guy to our family. Friday night is going to feel like Christmas Eve. I'm sure we won't sleep a wink that night.We had so much fun shopping for Pixel. We bought him some cute stuff I think he'll like. Who wouldn't like a little lamb chop stuffed animal? It's so soft I was tempted to keep it for myself. Also I highly recommend Cesar Millan's book. "How To Raise the Perfect Dog". We've really enjoyed it and it's very insightful.

Happy hot dog season! At our house we love a good grilled hot dog, preferably a little burnt. Jake likes his plain (like most foods) or maybe some cheese. I like to top mine with a little ketchup, a sliced tomato and sometimes a few onions to add a nice crunch. Although I am open to trying more of a gourmet hot dog like the Hawaiian-Style Dog that is topped with mango salsa. What's your favorite way to top a dog?
