Random thoughts

How do you like our new Maeve logo? We're having a sign printed for the bridal fair that will incorporate this with a gown illustration. I think it will look super classy. I'm excited. I'm also about to start redesigning our site. It's time for a new look, especially now that we have more pictures.

The first of two loads of dishes are washing at the moment (I never did get caught up from Tuesday this week - I've done one load a day and there have been dishes on the counter anyway, since then. Sick, I know), there are about three loads of laundry to be done, the house needs to be picked up and vacuumed, we're all in our jammies still at 10:30, and what am I doing? A combination of playing and working on the internet. Oh well. We'll get it turned around by naptime. And the girls are happy.

Hannah emptied the cabinet that has my baking pans and kitchen linens, and is using a cooling rack as a baby gate for her dolls, who are in the cabinet. Very funny.

Minor argument, resulting a 3 minute time out for a certain little girl.

The final fitting last night went okay. I wish we could not only dress people well, but make them feel good about their own body. One thing that did go very well, I felt, was the pairing of that bride with Heather, our photographer for the night. I try to choose which photographer to use for which bride very thoughtfully, matching personalities in a way that will make everybody comfortable. Can't wait to see the pictures, in spite of the quickly failing light we had!

We have got to start going to bed at night. I must admit we've seen 1am several times this week. The girls have been in bed on time, but Nick and I have been up chatting, watching political shows (an interest we share, at least to a point. :), working on finances, and/or watching football (him) and getting backrubs (me-I think I get the better end of the deal!). My kids sleep until 7 or 8, so it's not too bad, but naptime is calling to me!

Alright. I guess I'll head off to something more productive. :)

    Oh and the new logo is fabulous!
    Also, just wanted to let you know that I had to change my blog address. It's now:, same blog, new address!

  3. The new log is great! I'm so impressed. I love seeing the dresses you girls do.
