we have been known to partake in all of the above in less than a 24 hour period more times than i can count! In fact, I don’t think i would be too far off to say that arre has partaken in all of the above all at the same time – wine in one hand, latte in the other while she ate a cupcake (that I made), painted her nails and admired some S&J work :) ENJOY!
- s&j frame
- pumpkin sprinkles cupcakes
- stemless wine glasses
- starbucks gift card
- OPI nail polish in “you don’t know jaques!”
Thank you to all of you that participated!
i - at last - psuedo-Christmas decorated over the weekend (matt is so pumped over getting to take it all down in one week - what are you gonna do?) and did some online power shopping to boot. i think i'm finally feeling merry and bright. and my house is looking enough the part to get me through.
|O Christmas Tree (via cell phone at 1:00 a.m.)|
here at s t e w a r t & j a m e s , we have a few last minute orders to fill (thank you so much, sweet customers), i've got my real job to go to for a few days - and then ...
i am going to spend the rest of the week soaking up the most wonderful time of the year (and i really want to wear red lipstick a la this cute girl while doing so). i wish for you the very same thing (well, not necessarily the red lipstick part - especially if you're a guy. do we even have any guy readers?)
oh - and don't forget to check back later today (that's right - we extended it) for the announcement of our birthday surprise give-away winner!

- leaving a comment about your favorite way to celebrate a birthday
- blogging about stewart & james
- facebooking about stewart & james
- uploading a photograph of a stewart & james frame of yours to our facebook fan photos album (there's a how-to on there)
soooooooooo let's get this party started!
If you too, by any chance, still have shopping left to do, let us help you. Our current inventory page is updated and we are ready and waiting to ship your Christmas orders (to you or directly to its recipient - you tell us).
Time is short, though - after Friday we are shutting down for the week (preceding Christmas. my real office closes the week after Christmas and while I'm not complaining, it's really the week before when I could really use a little time, so we're doing that.).
On Friday, December 17, we will make our final shipment of 2010, so let us know what you need (this year) stat!

Arre and I share many things (s&j, husbands (joined at the hip), etc.) and one of those things we share is a mother-in-law. We have lucked out in that department..she’s sweet and kind and will give you the
shirt adorable blouse off her back. We thought there was no better way to celebrate her big day but with cupcakes (she loves), a slideshow (she cried over), and a memory tree (that she will cherish). Sit back relax and enjoy the photos
after most guests were gone, my children joined the party. Because they adore her
and she them

that’s how yesterday was spent (making 141 mini cupcakes). And today… We are getting ready for something at my house tonight (that I will reveal later)
I pretended like Mills had hair and put a clip in it and it made her look 2 years older than she is so I took it out immediately and decided to leave her footed pjs on all day to erase that grown up memory.
Now that that important job is done, I am off to check off number 1 on my list which is CLEAN THE HOUSE, helpers welcome.
Have a wonderful Thursday!

On Saturday we celebrated with Bethany the impending arrival of her baby. She (like a crazy woman) won’t find out the sex so we were left with no pink or blue direction to go in (which truthfully is more fun anyway, yes i’m admitting it) Enjoy the overload of pictures
do you recognize the “love” below on the card of our first advice giver?
menu for the 11 a.m. shower
- creamy cheese grits
- sausage cheese and egg bread
- yogurt bar (granola & fruit toppings)
- ham biscuits (jelly & mustard options)
- mini pumpkin cupcakes with maple frosting
Advice cards for Bethany to take home and ponder over for the next 6 weeks! We can’t wait to meet sweet baby M :)
While I love tradition as much as the next person – tradition has not found us during Thanksgiving. Many times the same meal will appear (dressing, turkey, green beans, etc.) but the company is rarely the same. As our families have grown, our lives have become busy and not everyone can travel so we are left to join whomever will have us or have our own small Thanksgiving. This year, Arre & Matt graciously (and stylishly with adorable invites) asked us to join them along with a mixture of her family, our in-laws, and my parents for a Thanksgiving feast at their newly renovated (and just now – recently moved into) new home.
Thanks Arre – i think we may have a new tradition!
