Leg Press & Letterpress

Today is the first day, in over 2 years, that I stepped foot in a gym-like arena and technically worked out. Yes, today was my first day of Wedding Bootcamp. Sure I've played softball and went on long walks, but I haven't actually pushed myself in quite some time.

This class is one month long and 3 days per week in the top floor of my work building. I signed up with 2 coworkers, but of course they flaked on day-one and I had to go at it alone. It took a lot of courage to even show up, but let me just say that while I felt like I was going to puke 10 minutes in to the class, I felt really good as I walked out of there today. Hopefully this means I'll feel much better in my wedding dress in a few months as well.

So after I soaked myself in sweat, I hopped in a cab and went across town to meet my new wedding invitation designer at Starbucks. I knew I loved her design aesthetic, but what I didn't know is that I hit the JACKPOT. Kate can do LETTERPRESS, she has studio space and can do it for fraction of the cost. WOO HOO. More to come, once I see the initial designs next week.

My First Blog Post...ever!

Hello! Welcome to my first blog...ever!

I am writer gone lazy and figured I spend so much time on the computer that I might as well chronicle my crazy days and not so crazy nights, for whomever cares to read about it.

I created my blog name after using this nifty Invent-a-Word site:

I entered Chicago and came up with many glorious compound words of sorts, that share a suffix or prefix with the word Chicago. Kitsch fit me well. It says creative, crafty and a little cheesy all rolled in to one, that's me :-)

Right now, 4 months away from my wedding, my life consists of planning my St. Louis wedding from Chicago and working. That's about it. But I promise to try to make my life more exciting now that I know readers may hold me accountable to it.

Stay tuned for more to come as I learn all there is to know about the wonderful world of blogging.


About Me

My photo
I'm a St. Louis native, but I have been living in Chicago since 2005 and am loving every windy minute of it. I enjoy cooking (more-so eating), home decorating and really anything creative. I'm a supporter of DIY & handmade goods, a fledgling foodie and a connoisseur of kitsch. I spend my days filling online shopping carts, emptying them and repeating the process all over again. Most of all I love spending time with my husband, Dave, our first child, Claire and my dog, Louie.
