Tidbit Tuesday #156

Oh, Internet! This Tuesday is finding me lost for words… (Imagine that!!) Maybe it’s because there’s just too much to say! Or maybe it’s because I stayed up past 2AM last night doing absolutely nothing THAT important. Now I’m left waiting for that Green Machine to kick in with all sorts of natural energy. ;)

This past weekend will go down in history as one of the best weekends I’ve ever lived. It started early when Dylan sent me on a Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt of insanely romantic proportions. (My Instagram BLEW UP that day.) Friday was spent getting glammed up for our very own portrait session(!!!) Kat, the girl behind Mustard Seed Photography AND my H-town bestie, gave us such an amazing gift through these photos. We will be sure to blog them once we see them all!! Hair, makeup, a little shopping, our session, and dinner with Kat’s family rounded out an incredible day. Saturday was all about Zoës Kitchen, West Elm, Starbucks, wine and catching up on our shows. And Sunday was just plain restful. I want to repeat the WHOLE THING this coming weekend!!

Okay, here’s the deal. I’m on the hunt for pretty prints! Now that we’ll soon have more pictures to hang around the house, we’re looking to supplement with other pieces of art… That said, how about a favorite-print-shop round up?? I’ll start first. :) I LOVE me some Lara Casey, Emily Ley, and Oh My Deer. I’m definitely into word-art. But I’m also looking for pretty watercolor/pastel/etc. type pieces. Do YOU have any favorite resources for us?

Song of the Week: Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself) by Ne-Yo Glee’s Jake Puckerman. I won’t even pretend to be cool after saying that… But what can I do?! I’ve loved this song since the moment I heard it on the radio. And TELL me this version isn’t the incredible-est!! (Incredible-est IS hyphenated, right??) ;)

I’ll have more wedding-picture-goodies to share with you late next week, but for now, it’s time for another Insta-collage. You might say I’m obsessed with documenting this life. I might say I agree…

Happy Tuesday!!

    Randi - You need to check out The Working Proof. Proceeds go to a variety of charities, artwork is totally unique and you can even browse by color.

    Joy - My sister is a printmaker/papermaker and book artist. We grew up in Middleburgh and West Fulton, NY and she is now in NYC working for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here is her website and if you send her an email with ideas or specifics, she could more than likely create something for you or collab with you on any prints you’d like made up. This would depend on if she has access to her boyfriends residency studio at the Center for Book Arts. :)

    Jess S - Sorry – no recommendations but a question instead! Where did you find the ‘Love Never Fails’ print? That’s what we have engraved on our wedding bands. I would love to get my hands on one of those!!
