That Time I Stumbled Upon my Design in Kourtney Kardashian's House

As you know Bubs and I recently purchased a home. Between buying said home, renovating it and saving up moola for our engagement party/wedding we aren't exactly makin' it rain banjamins over here. I am constantly looking up interior design ideas either on pinterest or by stalking celebs to see what they're doing and maybe I can DIY it myself or use it as inspiration for our own digs.

While looking through InStyle magazine's home tour of Kourtney Kadashian's California home something stuck out to me. As I was looking at her daughter's Penelope room I noticed something peeking out in the corner of the crib.

No…wait…that can't be….

holy shit it is.

Kourtney had used one of my diamond plushes to spruce up little Penelope's space. I could not believe it. It is a little hard to tell since it is inside the crib and its a soft pink color so it doesn't "pop" out but its kinda like a mama spotting her child across a crowded disney theme park…you just know.

You know what this means now? Poor bub is going to have to deal with our DVR being full of "Keeping up with the Kardashian" re-runs in hopes of me seeing it "in person". If this doesn't kill us it will only make us stronger (as quoted by the great Kelly Clarkson) (maybe she was predicting this moment for me and, in fact, the song is about mine and Bub's relationship and the turmoil one faces when the DVR is full) (do I smell a drama filled "Keeping up with the Bubs" in our future? I think I do)

I think the part that really gives me the warm and fuzzies is that Kourtney states in InStyle magazine that  "I get so happy when I go into her room. It’s my favorite room and I did it all myself." This is someone who can probably use hundred dollar bills as toilet paper (cause if I win lotto thats totally what I'm doing. Ya know that and pay off our mortgage…oh wait. no. use 100s as toilet paper, pay off our mortgage AND roll around in a kiddie pool full of dollah dolla billz) and yet she thought that my little handmade item was worthy enough to be seen in her home tour. It really blows my mind. Thank you so much Kourtney, I didn't think 2014 could kick 2013's ass, but 3 weeks in and it's looking pretty promising.  

Kourtney owns the larger version of this plush, if you want one for your little princess you can purchase it here!

...soooo a few weeks ago I asked a few of mine and Julie's friends to participate in a virtual bridal shower for her! (Julie has no clue this is happening...so...SURPRISE!) Julie got engaged this past September (just a few week after me!) and since then we've been planning our weddings pretty much every single day together with the help of google chat. She is a true friend, someone who I can tell errythang too (and I do mean errythang).

Julie and I have a bunch of friends all over the US and it bummed me out that I wouldn't be able to rally up all the troops and have an "in person" shower for her. So I did the next best thing: Hosted a virtual shower instead!

 (Yeah, I'm the cross eyed wonder on the left) (bee tee dubs thanks Ilene for the picture, and yes this is getting framed and going in my studio ASA to the P)

Me and the other guests already sent Julie her shower gifts, now its time to "party!" (and hey you all are invited!). If this was a real life shower I would've made some oreo truffles and decorated them with some cute dessert flags to, ya know, "pinterest" them up. Since you all are attending Julie's shower as well you can print out these bad boys for yourself and join in on the fun :)

(right click, save to desk top, open up in a photo program of your choice and print 'em out!)

I think these guys would've been a big hit at Julie's shower! Go visit Erika, Ilene, Gina and Emily to see what they are bringing to the party! Congrats again Julie, you are going to be a beautiful bride and I am so happy and honored to call you my friend, we love ya <3
