(Overlooking the rumor that Slumdog’s Frieda Pinto may be a husband ditcher), I am thrilled to see dark-skinned Asians rising in the media. Padma Lakshmi as the new spokesperson for Pantene? This is good. This is progress. And inspiration for people to quit Eskinol already!

Kai and I got our craft on this rainy week. We hope the grandmas and grandpa enjoy receiving their cards in the mail (and that no excess glue via Child-Gone-Wild dried the cards shut.)
Still feeling full — two hours after the fact — from our delish Valentine’s breakfast this morning downtown. Thank you, thank you Aubrei, for watching the boys!
And I’m so happy that many of you enjoyed the free downloads. I’ve been playing with the idea of offering more designs since there was such a positive response to the Valentine’s cards. Maybe once a month. Just for fun. But thank you all so much for your kind comments (and excitement over the Twilight cards!).
Happy three-day weekend. : )

We are a family that gets McNuggets cravings every now and then.
We give in when the baby wants some fries.
And we sometimes don’t dress our age.
We are honest when we ask for a cup for water. And get only that,
even when the soda machine is within arms-reach.
And we get very excited over Happy Meal toys.
And I will end this by saying that McDonald’s is wrong. WRONG! It represents everything I’m against; crummy 90′s pastel decor. A clown that was probably the inspiration for “It” (I accidentally caught parts of the movie when I was little and am ruined). Self-maximizing corporate execs who care only about the bottom line vs. quality. Trans fat. Beef tallow. Ugh! I mean, yum! I mean, gross…
Maybe that’s what makes it so good when we do give in. Because McDonald’s is pure sin. McDonald’s sundaes, I heart you forever.

For all you closet Twi-hards.

Some Valentine’s day cards I whipped up, using quotes from one of my all-time fave romantic movies, Moulin Rouge! And since free is all the rage these days, below is a downloadable PDF of these little cards, sized just like the ones you’d buy from the supermarket (back in the day) and hand out to all your school friends. Remember those?
Ryan challenged me do to some Twilight-themed valentines so, I may be sharing more designs this week. But in the meantime, hope you enjoy these!
