Friday Fun



Hey friends, happy TGIF to you! Check out the ad (above) that came though my inbox this week…aren’t those painted edge business cards super cute? Ha! I was thrilled to see my friends down at Jakprints include my blog business cards as part of their weekly marketing campaign. They do such a great job at small orders as well as large national print needs, I highly recommend them for anything you might need down the road. Thanks guys!

Today marks the return of Friday Fun. I received so much great feedback about the weekly listing about things happening around town I couldn’t resist but to bring it back. I have to admit, not drinking as much due to the little bambino has kept me a bit out of the total social scene…but there is light at the end of the tunnel and I can’t wait to get back to those dirty martini’s with all of you…two blue cheese olives please.

Check out some fun things happening around our city this weekend…bundle up, it’s gonna get cold again…brrr.
