life lately in photos - and ah, yes i'm taking special requests

if you've been following my twitter or the posts as of late, 
you know that life hasn't been it's normal schedule.
of course, in a total good non-normal way.

been using lots of these lovelies in prep for Creative Estates.

this little guy was a great comfort for those moments of stress.
i mean, just look at him and you just feel the stress disappear, don't you?

and i'm so thankful for my parents - especially as i was getting ready for this.
mom especially helped a ton with sewing my banner and giving me lots of business tips.
love them both.  

and this pretty lazy did an amazing job on a project we've been working on for the past few weeks. we promise to be sharing super-duper soon. can't wait!
(isn't she puuuuuurty?)

since i'm flying out of atlanta for CE, i got to hang out with this goofball for a couple of days.
so needed that time with him!  

i've also been rocking my ohsweetjoy earrings lately - and i lourve them.
and guess what i get to finally meet my dear friend kim who made them for moi!

 the flowers are blooming. and that just makes me happy. period.

and i've also had the chance to hang out with this pretty lady
especially as we are making the trip out to AZ together.

 and of course last but not least, leaving on a jetplane (all my bags are packed and i'm ready to go...) today. if you are reading this post around 10am, lori and i will have begun the trek. 

unless i get access to internet and get a chance to post some crazy pics or FLIP videos, this might be sayonara...for now! see you, crazy cats, next week when i reveal your favorite bloggers biggest secrets - like what they say in their sleep or that they love superman footsie PJs. let me know if you have any special requests and i'll do what i can. (muwahaha!)

as my old boss used to say...
love ya.
see ya later.

much love.
[happy thursday, friend.]
