crazy cool....

One creative family we are :)

My sister and her husband were just featured on apartmenttherapy for their amazing bike and coffee shop in Chicago.. It is being boasted as one of the best up and coming concepts in Chicago and they are just killing it over there with their awesomeness.. they also had an article in Show Pony Magazine where my newphew B is just the cutest that cute can be.. seriously I think everyone goes to Heritage just to see B.. not for the bikes or Stumptown coffee... lol

then I found out today hailies bday party made their best kids party post.. and I am so honored and excited...

LOVE US SOME and Show Pony Magazine!

We got a house!

So life doesn't always go in the order you thought it would.
J and I were suppose to be getting married in California on November 3rd...
However, this house found us.. and we are in love..
So instead of paying for a wedding.. we are buying a house...much smarter investment I think.. as we don't need all the hoopla for a wedding.. we will just get married at the courthouse and celebrate in our new house!
Here are some quick snapshots.. we close on Sept 1st.. so it is moving fast..

 we are even going to have a front courtyard :)

this kitchen is my dream kitchen.. gas stove..huge.. love
we have a lot to do in the mean time.. There is going to be so much decorating fun to be had :)
Speaking of I am selling a lot of Luke's current stuff... Thought I would post it here first then I will do craigslist..
