I've been a horrible blogger lately, tsk tsk! For those of you that don't know, I write another blog as part of my job -- The Finer Things. Between blogging over there, designing emails and site graphics for my consulting job, designing and creating beautiful wedding invitations for my husband's cousin and his fiance and getting ready for our Hawaii trip, I just haven't had the time or energy to post over here at Darling Notes. Shame! Before I say bon voyage and depart for Hawaii tomorrow, I thought I'd share a few pics that I've taken on my phone recently:

My brother in law and his girlfriend visited Chicago for Easter weekend. We checked out the sites of Chicago and ate a ton of food. I cooked Easter dinner for 6 people. While they were here, we dined all over the city, including dinner at q (which was amazing!) and brunch at Cafe Babareeba (create your own bloody mary bar!)

A sneak peek at the invitations I designed and created for my husband's cousin and his bride-to-be. We're looking forward to their wedding in June!

On a whim I had my hairdresser give me long bangs. I love them.

Bean has been extra mischievous lately. I folded all of the throw blankets and she had to make a bed on top of them. Somehow, she always finds the most comfortable spot in the apartment to take her naps.

We leave for Hawaii tomorrow morning, and we could not be more excited! I am guessing that my phone should work on the islands, so I should be able to post a few photos on Instagram. So, aloha for now!

From your tweets it looks like you're having a fabulous time! And the recent goodies on The Finer Things are ADORABLE. I am way too much of a sucker for pretty paper. Thank you for the ideas...or maybe not...
