Happy Friday!

by , posted on August 17th, 2012 in Features

Well, I’ve had a bit of a week here. On Tuesday, I got to put together a little something special for Baltimore Bride magazine. I’m so excited about how it all turned out. The magazine won’t publish until January 2013 though. I’m going to have a hard time waiting to see it in print!

Next week, I’m supposed to visit the…wait for it…Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Headquarters. I don’t think I can breathe! I mean, it’s like, the Martha lair! I’m going for the Altitude Summit Design Conference. I’m sure my phone’s camera is going to get a serious workout. If you want, you can follow along on instagram. I’m classic_play.

The kids had a big week as well. It started off with Dave’s mom coming over and playing lego and several rounds of uno with them. As the week progressed, they went roller skating and played over at friends’ houses. Today they’re off to Dutch Wonderland with my parents. My dad told the kids they have a high dive show. The youngest couldn’t wait to tell me about it, “THEY HAVE A HIGH DIVE SHOW! No, really. They have a guy who jumps off the side of a building into some water. It’s sooooooo cooooool!” I’m sure they’ll have a blast.

I hope you and the family have something fun planned for this weekend yourselves!

    Ahhhhhhhh! The table is SO pretty!!! I can’t wait to see it once it’s on stands! Isn’t it crazy how far ahead magazines prepare for publish? Anyway–YOU have worked your magic with this one and it’s perfect! So pretty!

    #2, THE Martha Headquarters? I would die. I would actually die. :) I know it will be awesome and you will rock everything. :)

    I may pass out from hyperventilating! I’ll probably be the only one there carrying a big brown bag to breathe into.

    I can’t believe you’re going to hang out at Martha’s headquarters! See…all those years of collecting her magazines (even when it wasn’t cool) pays off. I want to hear all about it!! Take lots of photos too! And if you get a photo with you and Martha together that would be the neatest thing ever.
    ps…I would send you the doily lights if you had the same wattage as us!
