18 Hour Sale @ Monogram Chick!

I think the cool, crisp Georgia air got to me.....I'm in the mood to shop & what better time to shop than when there is a SALE?!

It'll be short, October will be here before we know it and the Monogram Chick sale will expire at 10pm {9.30.09}. So shop now, stock up and SAVE!

2 By 2 We Will Go

As I write this post Dr. Chick is putting the final few nails in the ark. Seriously, we've had a ton of rain {and are expecting more tonight}. Work on the exterior of the office has come to a screeching halt, today I spent the day deep in paint colors, counter tops and decisions--looking foward to more of the same tomorrow. Tomorrow morning I'll swim to my car, take out the oars and head to town.

Here's a sneak peek at what we have to look forward to in the next 36 hours (thanks!)

Yes, I am that addicted to PhotoShop that I added a drop shadow and I may or may not have uploaded it and tweaked it more than once....don't judge.

Dr. Chick's family owns a little cabin on a nearby lake....this is what you can see of the cabin as of today.....sad.

My heart goes out to the families whose homes are flooded. We have now lived through 2 floods (in 1 1/2 years), the devastation the water causes is unreal,
I cannot imagine what it must have been like for Noah and his family, let alone our present day families that must rebuild after water damage.

I'm laying low in blog land

Because it is all I can do to stay sane.....I had no idea building Dr. Chick's orthodontic office would be such an undertaking. Life is a flurry of activity as we make decision after decision in anticipation of being open for business in October! Dr. Chick is updating his blog {almost} daily with the 'reno' progress, check it out.

I am quite happy with the way our sign turned out. Our great friend, Wes, cut the sign into that spiffy shape and Dr. Chick sanded and slathered it with many coats of white paint (in our living room; which another story for another day!) and then we applied the vinyl lettering to both sides.

Monogram Chick
continues to chirp along behind the scenes & into the wee hours of the night. I simply have little energy for anything else these days! Thanks for hanging in there with me as posts are sporatic, I'll be more frequent--pinkie swear--when the "Operation Ortho Office" is complete! In the meantime, visit Sister Chick's blog--I am totally blown away by what an awesome blogger she is! And keep up with our office progress via Dr. Chick's blog.

PS: The fan-tab-u-lous, Nina, hooked us up with an awesome logo {as seen on our t-shirts}...more to come on that topic later, but wanted to thank Nina again for a job so well done!

Not Just for Spit Up

So, my very creative and crafty sister, Kiki, took on this adorable diaper cake project for her friend, Kate's baby shower. Isn't it too cute? I am partial to the Monogrammed Burp Cloth and think it is the perfect diaper cake topper!

Go check out her blog for the tutorial....
