Who are those goofballs? Oh, goodness. Last week our good friends launched a hip new photo booth company called Tomfoolery. They make custom backdrops for each event.. These photos were taken at the Gap/Rue Magazine party last week.

In other related news, my hair is now long enough to pull all the way back! Very exciting stuff in my life these days.

What happens when you don't yet have a human child? You spend all your money on your dog. And when he has intensive knee surgery, you mother him back to health and bore all your friends with updates on how he's doing. I can only imagine what my friends with kids think about us spending an ungodly amount of money for the doggie version of a knee replacement.

Our six-year-old boxer is on the mend. Is it weird that I have loved mothering him and attending to his every need while he recuperates? I think maybe it means I need a real kid. But for now, he is our child and it was hard to see him in pain. I will say that the orthopedic veterinary surgeon we used (yep, those do exist - and they charge A LOT of money) did an amazing job. 10 days later, and he's already walking like a normal dog. I honestly can't believe it. So for all of you waiting anxiously on the edge of your seat for an update, he's doing just fine. He'll be back to running laps and punching other dogs in the face in no time.

don't give up

I remembered this post from Design Sponge the other day and thought, oh yeah, I meant to tell people about that. Let's forget for a moment that it was posted two years ago. Details. I mostly love the print that's leaning casually against the wall, reading "don't give up" in big block letters. I also liked the guy's name, Percy Bright. Sounds like a character in a novel or something.

I've got a real thing for graphic wall art - at the Renegrade Craft Fair that came through town it was like WALK AWAY from yet another piece of fancy paper with words in pretty fonts, in every booth. Sadly, this print isn't available anymore. You can buy the t-shirt here though.
