Sunday, June 6, marks Andrew and Mariah’s 1st wedding anniversary.

andrew mariah wedding


As a surprise gift to his wife who recently started this wonderful new blog,  Andrew asked Mariah’s favorite bloggers to give her a little shoutout ‘as it would mean so much to her and that means a lot to me.’ Altogether now, Awww! I mean, c’mon, how can you possibly say no to that?  So to Andrew and Mariah, all our best wishes to you guys on your first anniversary!  And Mariah, looking forward to more of ‘size too small’ loveliness! ~xoxo

Fastfood takeout lovers, don’t throw that drink caddy from last night just yet!  Check out this fab DIY re-use of kraft drink carriers (from Sonic!) by Dandee Designs. Great as gifts to friends or as eco-chic centerpieces for your next party (use them to decorate your tables then share with guests afterwards as favors).  And that awesome “HELLO” banner?  Why it’s a free download to boot. Woot!
