While I was in Lawrence, I headed to Target to do a little shopping. Yes, I know there are many Targets here in Chicago, but tax is sooo much cheaper in Kansas!! Anyhoo, the truth of the matter is, I NEEDED to see some Liberty of London prints. Everything they did for target is truly amazing. I'm really addicted. I did manage to get some cute stationary and some pajamas, but there is so much more to love. I think Ben might need that tie for a certain wedding in our future... And the same goes for that dress. Rehearsal dinner? Hmmm, I think so!

a lovely lawrence bridal shower

This past weekend I visited Kansas to help some lovely ladies host a bridal shower for our friend Mallory. Lauren was gracious enough to let us have it at her adorable house! (Ps: she has an adorable blog to match) It really turned out great, not counting the super snowy weather! Which was on the first day of Spring no less! Well, it was Spring indoors, which was our intention. Anyhoo, so here are some pictures of how it all turned out. Lauren made the cake, Jenny, Mallory's sister made the cupcakes and I made the flower arrangements. It was lots of fun... and we drank mimosas!! What could be better?

yes, i'm alive!

Okay, okay, I know it's been WAY too long! But I have a good excuse, I promise! Well, maybe I do, I'm not quite sure. I'll just blame it on school.

Anyhoo, Ben and I started spring cleaning early this year. We got rid of lots of stuff we didn't need and actually got two things we desperately needed! A dresser and a computer. The computer arrived today and I couldn't be more excited! It's such a relief to use a computer that doesn't die after 20 minutes!

Basically, Ben and I have been trying to rid our lives of clutter and make our home generally more organized. Both being artists, it is very, very hard to keep uncluttered. However, I think we're making steps in the right direction by getting rid of all that junk we've been piling up! Here are some of my favorite new additions to our home.Ben's Valentine gift for me!
My cousin Sadie's wedding gift to us. It doesn't have a home yet because we still need to attach hangers to the back...Artwork by our friends Paul Munro (birds) and Gretchen Huffman (squirrel)
And last but certainly not least, my new plants! I'm attempting this whole green thumb thing. After all, I do take care of plants at my job, surely I can do it at home too.
