Friday Fragments

--I got an email the other day from someone who had been searching for BumpIt reviews, and came across a post I'd written a few years ago. I forgot about this, and more importantly this picture of my mom that I shared in that post. Isn't her hair something else?! I mean, the width alone is unbelievable. So if you're curious what this is all about, you can read the saga that was my attempt at using the BumpIt here, and you can also read about "the moment we first met" here...yes, I was a tad dramatic in these posts. And yes, I still have a special place in my heart for infomercials. And no mom, this picture will never get old. Sorry. :)

-- I realized last night that I never shared the birth announcement that I did for my friend Ashley awhile back. Her sweet little guy Judd was born at the end of October, and I was lucky enough to get to play photographer and take some pictures of him when he was just about a week old. Isn't he precious?! She wanted something simple, so I set up this picture so it would include lots of white space. Then to design it, I just put his info on the front, and the back was navy, green, and turquoise argyle. Very simple but I love it! It was inspired by this photo I saw on Pinterest.

--You may have noticed that some of my posts now have a "Pin It" button at the bottom of them (scroll down to the very bottom to see it on this post). This allows you to pin a post directly to Pinterest if you wish. Karen shared a great tutorial on her blog on how to do this. It was really simple, and I like the fact that I can just erase the html code as I'm posting if I don't want that post to have a Pin It button there. Thanks for sharing this Karen!

--I mentioned in my Project 366 post that Patrick and I went to a gala Saturday night. It was the Winter Gala for his work, and we had a lot of fun. I had a ridiculous time, however, trying to walk in heels again. I don't know what I was thinking, but it was a sight to see. I'm pretty sure at times it looked as if I'd had one too many drinks (which I hadn't) so I'm sure people were curious about if this pregnant girl was getting her drink on. Regardless, it gave us a good laugh, and we enjoyed getting out together for a bit.

Well that's all for today...hope everyone has a great weekend! :)
