If you know us you know who the b*tch is.... right??? Ben's crabby and Julie's crazy, Ben's mean and Julie's nice, Ben's clothes don't match and Julie's are cute, you get the idea. And then, THE BABY! The center of our universe, the "cutest baby to ever live", our son Michael William, Em-Dub, Micha-Michael, Toots Magoots, Mikey, Michaletta, Boo Baby Boo.
I'm drinking wine and feeling chatty. Hmmm... Where to begin, ha! Well I am excited for my babe Michael someday to read this so I'm sure I can find SOMETHING about him to blog about, ha! Yeah right, I am talking and obsessing over him constantly (in my head and to his Grandparents) I try to keep the Michael chatter to a minimum as not to annoy people but what can ya do ;) So recently I have been comparing his newborn pics to now. WOW. Here's one of the first to most recent 8 mo pic.
8 mo. Grown so much already!
It sick how much we love him. How anything he does is the funniest, cutest, etc. Right now we laugh that he loves to climb, laughs at Tux and Migo constantly, is always hanging on Mama's legs, turns around when Dad tries to hold him, puckers up for kisses, high fives, is learning to wave hi, says DADADADA, today we think he said Michael, occasionally says MAMAMAMA and pretty much anything else he does is our favorite.
So... I was a little nervous at first to begin advertising wedding invitations.. You know - all the expectations that go into wedding planning, the uncertain brides, competitive market but the more I've been thinking the more I'm sure - I got this! I am totally excited about creating something just perfect for each bride and I have been busy creating samples that I am really happy with. More to come FOR SURE!
"Floral Luxe" for the dazzling bride.
"Burlap and Lace" perfect for an outdoor or natural themed wedding.
If you know me you know I LOVE NEUTRAL colors but I would be really excited to add a color pop to any of these invites or create something custom. Pocketfolds, invite boxes, so many options!
I might add for all of you that like to think - how does she do it with a baby?! My house is a HOT MESS, there's ribbon and paper EVERYWHERE, we are picking little rhinestones off every surface in our house but were happy so who cares!
While my Mom and Dad were here for 2 weeks over Christmas we went to the Phoenix zoo! Seems like every kids childhood is full of zoo memories (at least they should be) and here's Michael's first! He is sure to be an animal lover with two puppies and a kitty at home. He warmed up to the goats right away!
I must say the Phoenix zoo is a little bit lame - lots of areas missing animals - but overall it was a really fun day! We saw monkeys, an elephant, flamingos and more!
