right this second…

I’ve been looking for:
something blue.

I can’t get:
this song out of my head.

it’s so nice:
to check things off a to-do list.  {especially wedding related to-dos!}

I’m really REALLY happy to be:
going CAMPING tomorrow!!  yahooo!

hi friends!  sorry things have been kind of quiet around here this week.  the week came and went so quickly.  I hope I’ll be back to my usual self next week.  have a wonderful weekend and enjoy that summer sun!  we’re finally getting our share in Portland.

    Dear Unruly Things:

    I attempted to email you but it bounced back. I have been creating these quirky greeting cards and I have been looking for a reasonably priced printer. Do you have any suggestions? It would be so helpful!

    Thank you

    P.S. I love your blog!

    home is the best song ever. i first heard it last fall, so now i always get that “sitting outside in my sweater and riding boots on a cold day” feeling and it really is truly divine. do you want a copy of the cd? i have it if you’d like i’ll share. :) cuz the whole darn thing is awwwesome.
