Morning dose of cuteness

I want a puppy sooooo badly!

Pugs + Pink

Guess who's googling pictures of pug puppies now? Paige is. It showed up in my inbox this morning and that just makes my day.

I also love this postcard by Carolyn Sewell from her collection of "Postcards To My Peeps." It's so fun and charming and it also made my day.

Lately I...

Lately I: have been in love with my new phone; visited Dave at work at the Hancock building; found my Curious George raincoat in a box; had a date-day with Dave; celebrated the new Starbucks logo (and free desserts!) with the girls; made a lasagna; did a major purge/clean/organize of my cube at work; bought a grown-up trench coat; bought some awesome heels; celebrated Paige's 24th birthday!

Things I like

I have been failing at this blog thing recently. Pretty often I come across things I want to share, but then the actual making that happen goes awry. Sigh.

I have recently become a huge fan of grey and white zig-zags. Remember the rug? (Still want it.) Now there's fabric!

A really cool site called Lettercult just published its top ten custom letters. They are all pretty fantastic (see them all here), but here are two of my favorites:

by Toby and Pete (Isn't that amazing?! Doesn't it look like Play-do??)

I love my phone!

I just downloaded a photo booth app and it's going to be sooo much fun. I love photobooths! (Yes, this is me at 9 on a Saturday morning. Please don't look too closely.)

I feel bad now for complaining...

I'M SO EXCITED! I may or may not have done a happy dance in front of the security guard and the fedex man.


I am so impatient.

..and so frustrated with the shipping company who has delayed the arrival of my iPhone for another day!

Yes, it's true, I'm getting an iPhone.

In fact, it's sitting in the shipping office IN CHICAGO, not being delivered.

I'm really excited about this phone. I've had the same flip phone for three years so this is a grand upgrade. Plus I'm switching carriers so I will now get service in the subway. I am beyond excited.


My fairytale Wednesday went like this: phone package arrives at work / Ashley stops on the way home to activate phone / grand excitement and customization ensues.

Did I mention that I have been eagerly looking at the mail cart every time it rolls by? Every time since Monday?

And shopping for phone cases. This is my favorite so far.

I realize this is a first-world problem. And that it's not that big of a deal. And it's Ash Wednesday, after all, so my mind should be on other things. So I will now attempt to go about my day as if nothing is stuck in the aldkfjadlfkjdfjshipping office.
