Happy Weekend.


Have you been having an amazing first week of fall? I have. Here in Oklahoma we’re experiencing a lot of below average temperatures and I’m soaking up every moment! Not only did I break out the Halloween decorations (fine, that was last week), but some long sleeves, too. Have a fantastic weekend and enjoy this week’s Mad Props!

Win It: Heather Kintner.

Summer is wedding season, which makes this week’s Win It: Heather Kintner perfect timing. Heather is giving away a set of bachelorette invitations and thank you notes from her Unmentionables line to one lucky reader! The delicates and undergarments that adorn each piece are fun and flirty and will definitely set the tone for an evening to remember.

How to Win:
1. Tell me what your perfect bachelorette party would be like or if it’s already happened what it was like. Sweet or raunchy? Day time get together or evening on the town? The more details the better.
2. Leave a valid email address. (Unfortunately, those who do not will be automatically disqualified.)
3. Do it all before Monday, June 29th at noon CST.

A winner will be chosen shortly after the contest closes. Good luck, ladies!


Fill-In Baby Invites.

Almost all of my good girl friends are married, most of them with at least one kid or onto number two already. I wish I’d known about these fill-in baby invitations when they were having their baby showers. Then again, they’re pretty non-descript with no rattles or ducks or anything, so you could just as easily use them for a party of your own. I would!


Helvetica Is 50 Invite.

Can you imagine one of these invitations to the Helvetica is 50 bash showing up in your mailbox? I’d be tempted to keep it and not reply, but who in their right mind would ever miss an event like this. Love the white type on thin board. Nice and simplistic just like the guest of honor.
