IRL Baltimore

IRL also known as “In Real Life”, is the best! Especially when you haven’t seen each other in like 6 months!  Chris Ann (lives in Minneapolis) and I (Baltimore) talk multiple times a day on the phone!  We text each other and even exchange “multiple personality” tweets!  But, we live for the moments we have IRL time!  This weekend gave us such a gift!

Chris Ann arrived Wednesday night!  My kids, being budding bloggers, snapped pictures as she loaded into the truck!  We whisked her home!

CA is here!

That night she kicked her feet up, watched American Idol with my kids (I had a board meeting) and cried.  She cried because she was relaxing…because she finally made it…because she loves watching people who take risks to achieve their dreams!

The next day we threw ourselves into full on “work” mode…ie…cutting, pinning, coloring, dreaming, designing!

We are artists after all!  Blogging is a tool we use to share the things that inspire us…but, what we really live for are the moments where we surround ourselves with paint ships, fabric swatches, Prismacolor pencils and textured paper!

We had a little leftover Pesto Pasta Salad.

Thursday afternoons are crazy for me, so we spent the evening in the truck working in our Transporter Office on the ipad.

That day we received a message from the Momz Share organizers.  They had seen our signature cocktail created by Sippity Sup.  They wanted us to share the love and create one for the Momz Share event on Saturday night!  We never miss an opportunity to create!

This is what we came up with…


It’s an Espresso Martini With a Kiss.  We “sampled it”.  It was perfect!

Espresso Martini With a Kiss Recipe

1 oz. vodka

1 oz. Kahlua

1 oz. Godiva Chocolate Liqueur

Pour vodka and kahlua in a shaker with ice.  Shake until cold.  Pour into a martini cup.  Take a metal spoon and turn it upside down.  Have it touch the side of the glass.  Pour Godiva Chocolate Liquor gently over the spoon.  It will sink to the bottom of the glass.  Garnish with a coffee bean.  Enjoy!





I’m so grateful Chris Ann and I have this LoveFeast Table playground where we get to virtually spend the day together.  But, there’s nothing like IRL!
