About 21 years ago, my girlfriend and I slept in my car in order to be the first in line to get George Michael tickets for his Faith tour. We overslept and missed getting in line. By the time we got inside, the tickets were sold out. To add insult to injury, they added another show while we were on our way home, that also sold out in minutes. So on Tuesday night, along with a soldout crowd, I got to see my man, George Michael. He was worth every penny that I spent on that ticket. He is so amazing and still has it! It was one of the best concerts that I have ever seen in my life. So if he is coming to a town near you, get your ticket.

I have such a special place in my heart for jewelry designer, Meg Lammers. She absolutely creates jewelry that is very unique, modern, and beautiful. So for me, she without a doubt has a unique take on pearls. This is one of my favs from her collection. You can see here entire collection here.

I know that I have blogged about this countless times but if you are going to DIY the stationery aspects of your wedding, do it with high quality DIY products. So I so pleased to announce that White Aisle (one of my favs) will be offering DIY invites. White Aisle will print the imagery on the invite and you will be able to run the cards through your home printers and proof/print your text. Rebecca states that the pricing will be about 1/2 of what our normal flat print invites run (hopefully $2 for an invite, reply card, invitation backing and 2 envelopes.) White Aisle will be offering 6 brand new designs in 4 different pantone colors as well as over a dozen colors for invitation backings and envelopes so that people can really mix and match. The set above is my favorite. Get more information the White Aisle blog.
