I like to keep boxes around the house because I always end up using them for storage or shipping something to a friend. I don't want to buy boxes when I can reuse the ones that I get from getting things shipped to me. My husband thinks that I'm weird that I hoard these boxes but they really come into great use!
I got creative one day and realized I needed an end table for our bedroom near my closet. I didn't want to go out and buy one and I recently got a sturdy cardboard boxed in the mail. I... Continue reading ...

We were craving for dim sum so we researched for places with dim sum near where we were during our road trip and found Dim Sum House is Morrisville. Conveniently located not too far from my highway exit, it was easy to spot the big sign for the restaurant.
The exterior of the restaurant is definitely something you would find in North Carolina. Covered in brick with bold signs, this has got to be the most sophisticated exterior I've seen for a dim sum restaurant.

I went to the mall in Florence, SC for the first time a few days ago and for a little town, I was really impressed. It's an indoor mall so when the weather is crappy outside, you can still come inside to shop. There is also a lot of restaurants inside and outside near the area. If you are just passing by the city or staying for the night, stay near the mall. See all hotels in Florence, SC. Picture of indoor mall in Florence, SC

As a gift to my bridal party for planning the bachelorette party, shower and being a part of my wedding, I gave them all Gucci perfumes and also took care of the hair and make up expenses for the wedding day. They all loved it. I wrapped in different wrapping paper in my wedding colors.

I was sitting here looking at some marketing tools online and then discovered, why don't I put a cute sticker on the back of the place cards for all of the kids who are coming to my wedding so they feel special!? Kids love stickers right?!
I've never seen it done before. I've already printed out menus for the adult meals and now I'm printing the menu on the stickers.
I hope they'll like it!
Here is the sticker design:
I'll take a picture of the place card with it once the stickers have arrived... Continue reading ...
