Recently, I was asked to join the United Way committee for my employer.

Of course, I took on the flyers.  Which were due at month end (accountants know whats up with it) the day before we left for our two-week vacation.  It’s fine, I work best under pressure.

Wanna know what I realized whilest working on said flyers?

I like fonts.

And I like them….a lot.  Here are some of my favorites.

The best part is you can search every single one of those fonts at and get them for yourself.

Amendment:  When I posted this I thought I downloaded them all from…it appears some aren’t there anymore.  Click the links below for the missing fonts.  Lainie Day, Sail, Rosewood, Modern No. 20, American Typewriter, and Simply Glamorous.  Please let me know if anymore go missing….love you, mean it!  No seriously, I mean it.

So you wanna see what I did with these spicy fonts?  I took our normal clip art posters and made these….


I am by no means a graphic designer.  But I will say I think these flyers are an upgrade and I am excited about it!

If you didn’t notice, most of the flyers are very text heavy.  Choosing the right fonts made the poster more artistic than informational, and hopefully more people will take a look and get involved.  Fingers crossed.

What about you all, got a favorite font I should know about?

Blogging has consumed our lives… Blogging for breakfast, blogging for lunch, and blogging for dinner.  I really had no idea what to expect when we bought our first domain name.  Once we decided upon a name it has been a whirlwind of blog posts.  At this point, everything we do is blog related, but in the best way possible. Except for on weekends of course, those are still ours…for now.

We decided a long time ago that we needed a way for our friends and family to check in on the things we do and see what we do every day, no matter how boring it may be.  We did not expect everything that went into maintaining a blog.

Since we have been at this for a whole month now I wanted to fill you in on the work that we put in every day.  Hopefully, this will give everyone just one-tenth of an idea of how much goes into preparing a blog post and getting it ready for the inter-webs.  Early on, we choose to each take a role.  Since I am not much of a writer I chose the more technical, web design, layout, NERDY aspect of it all.  In addition, I was forced chose to take on the semi-professional photographer role.

We spend most of the time taking photos, posing for photos, editing photos, and re-taking photos when we don’t have the shot we need.  Christina does all of the wonderful, funny, witty writing that you folks get to enjoy every day (this really is Tim and I really did write that).   I do take part in all of the writing though by proof-reading and correcting all of the errors, and trust me there are many errors.  I had to get a jab in there somewhere so her head would stop swelling.

Then it is time for the layout, this includes the resizing of everything, inserting all of links for any product or reference we use, and placing FB and Pinterest links.  Once everything is in place and has been looked at one million times it gets published.  Ok so that doesn’t sound like much work, but when was the last time you resized and edited 60 photos.

We really do enjoy blogging and keeping everyone in the loop with all of the fun stuff we do.  We stay up very late to make sure everyone gets a laugh the next morning.  We really do appreciate everyone who reads even just one post.  In conclusion, thank you everyone for being with us for the first month and reading our blog.  We will have many more posts to come and hope you will stick with us through the years and we will do our best to keep you entertained.

Would you believe me if I told you a month ago I wrote about our precious honey boo boo child.

Yea…me neither.  But you better believe we are going to celebrate it like an eighth grade romance.

Even more unbelievable is how amazing my mom has been…visiting the site over 6,000 times.  Thanks mom!

Ok but seriously, this blows my mind. 

I guess it surprises me because I assumed the only people who would actually read what we wrote would be my family and maybe one or two friendlies.  And while I am sure they make up the majority of that number, I still am amazed that we got over 6,700 views in just a month.

Yes, I realize for most bloggers this number is puny.

We are not most bloggers….so we need to show you all our UNDYING GRATITUDE for coming and reading what we have to say.  Even if it is just once, we are glad you are here.

We love writing about our adventures, but we love it even more when you all enjoy reading it.

I hope this post doesn’t come off pretentious or braggy…I am just over the moon with excitement that people may actually smile because of something they read here.  Seriously, comments and messages make me as giddy as a Bieber fan.

So we are going to encourage them….and bribe you.
