Hey there ho there! How are you guys? I am fan-freaking-tastic. Really, I am. Aside from the plague that has seemed to settle over my house with head wounds and ear infections and snot and more snot (mostly from Gabe, a bit from me), I have been consumed with all sorts of good things.
Since making a more concerted effort to focus on Bottle Pop, business has sort of taken off. I'm booking things left and right and it's awesome. Slightly scary but exciting nonetheless. I wish I had something to show you but everything is just kind of "in the works" right now, so we have to be patient. Not my specialty.
I am planning my own little party this weekend and it's a Favorite Things party. It was supposed to be my whole group of friends participating but people are lame and we can't seem to pick a date where everyone can make it. So now it's just a few of us but we're doing it anyway. We are all bringing a few of something we love so we can exchange them with each other then pretend we're Oprah as we hand them out. There will also be apps and desserts. I can't wait. Oh and since I'm obsessed with emerald these days, this is my party color scheme...
and this is the mood board I put together because, well, I'm obsessed.
Please don't alert the internet police but all of the sources for these lovelies is on a secret Pinterest board and well, I'm lazy.
This past weekend, I also hosted one of my most favorite people on earth, my friend KP. It's here where I would normally link my blogger friends but bish hasn't blogged in like 6 months so I won't worry about it. She brought her crew to see my crew and we did things like eat at child-friendly restaurants, talk business taxes, hit up a special event at terrain where I could schmooze, bring home cheesesteaks and beer for our menfolk and then let our children eat Oreos for breakfast. We even squeezed in some FaceTime with our pal Bethany in Kuwait. It was glorious and I miss these b's all year long. I'll link Beth up because she's a responsible blogger.
We even managed to finally see the end of Always Crafty 2012, when I led a tutorial on moss monogram letters. KP was supposed to be here for #AC but had to cancel last minute, so luckily I had her supplies on hand. And now, and only NOW, can I start planning Always Crafty 2013, which if all goes well, will be bigger and better and more sparkly than ever before. Cross your fingers!
