Good Days and New Faces

Guess what day it is. Guess what day it is. Anybody?

It never gets old.

Happy Wednesday everyone! Yesterday was a really awesome day that I can’t wait to talk about – we got our new couch and it’s a little (okay, a lot) bigger than we anticipated so our living room is consumed by it now. Plus we went and saw The Blue Man Group and it was absolutely AMAZING! Knock your socks off, let’s go again – like right this very moment, hello dance party amazing. AND we got our new used mini-van from my parents and I already feel baby fever kicking in because of it.

But all of that is going to have to wait a day or so because today isn’t about any of that goodness. It’s about the lovely newish faces that we have hanging out on the sidebar this month. I’ve absolutely LOVED getting to know each and every one of them over the past month or so and I know you will, too. Check out a little bit about them, their blogs and their businesses below!
