1. The best, most beautiful wedding (or any event invites) ever. For not that much money.

    These ladies, based in Nashville, made my husband’s and my wedding announcements, which were custom, gorgeous, perfect, heartfelt and something like $250 total. We didn’t have a wedding so it was important to us that our announcements felt right. And the Nesting Project team did an absolutely stunning job. 

    I was just reminded of them because they sent an email about a fundraiser they’re doing but I had to pass along the url. Please pass their info along to anyone you know who’s at the invitation stage of wedding planning. I know it can be a painful, costly process and these peeps do it right, with no pain!

  2. FIRED?? More like promoted. To chief happiness officers! Whatever, El Monte. This is a adorable and awesome and I wish I swam wherever this is.

    This Is All Kinds Of Wrong of the Day: A bunch of lifeguards in El Monte, CA, recently created this “Gangnam Style” video — but city administrators caught wind of it, and promptly fired them for “using the facility for private use and wearing uniforms in public while off-duty.” 

    The video was deemed ”disgusting” and an “embarrassment to the city of El Monte.” 

    Hey, uptight city officials — if U.S. soldiers in full uniform can get away with a “Call Me Maybe” cover while stationed in Afghanistan, wethinks the El Monte 14 should be rehired ASAP.
