top 10

Sunday, July 24, 2011

10. It looks like last week's top 10 was my 500th post! Work until 2:00 am every night and you're sure to miss things like this. I am exhausted.

9. I teamed up with Williams-Sonoma to give one of my readers a Zoku Duo Quick Pop Maker. You can enter the giveaway here. So excited to work with them!

8. Girls night with Shari last night. Cooking, zoku pops {recipes + pics coming soon} and lots of girl talk. Had a great time.

7. Took some photos of my neighbor/friend today. I need Jess to come visit and take some pics of me. She has a 7D and definitely knows how to use it.

And yes. Her hair always looks this good. I have hair envy.

6. Went to the Taste of River North with Sarah + a group of friends last Sunday. My good friend Brandon McHose performed and he is actually going to let me give away a few CDs. Leave a comment on this post for a chance to win. The man can sing. I have some more pics of the show here.

5. I launched some new pre-made templates and am going to let my readers take $10 off through Monday night! These can be recolored in the color scheme of your choice for an additional fee! Here is the Kendall, inspired by Kendall's nursery.

4. Last Wed afternoon I purchased something that could take my business to another level. We will see how long it takes me to figure this one out.

3. Shopped the C&C California sale yesterday. Cannot believe how much I saved!

2.  Bought this table from Grandin Road for $40. Chairs from World Market. I can officially cross that off my summer bucket list. Had dinner + ice pops on the balcony with Shari last night.
1. A week from tomorrow marks 1 year of living in Chicago. Cannot believe it's been a year. Planning something special, so stay tuned!

What's at the top of your list this weekend? Hope you had a great one!

Happy Sunday!
