    For Philippines with Love

    Today I’m joining with my friends Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours, along with many other bloggers, in a blogger day of silence to bring awareness and attention to the Philippines. As you probably know by now Typhoon Haiyan has devastated much of the country. With winds of over 195 mph, the typhoon tore apart cities, turning them into rivers and leaving a trail of massive destruction. The damage is so extensive that there is no electricity, food or water. The hospitals are overrun with the injured, medical supplies are running out, and there are an estimated 10,000 people dead. The Philippines needs of our help.

    Money donated will go to ShelterBox, which provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most. Each large ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster but typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items. A whole box costs $1,000 (US), so we’re hoping to raise enough to send 3 boxes to those that need it in the Philippines.

    Please join us and spread the word. Whatever and however you can contribute is appreciated. Every little bit helps.

    Donate here. Read more here. Help spread the word.

       Even though this guy was up at 5 am (oy!) I am working hard trying to get a Mother's Day gift guide + giveaway ready to go live this week. It's a really good one full of all of my favorite things (this photo is a major hint at one of the prizes) so I'm taking volunteers to come hold this teething baby so I can work. Any takers??? (Mostly kidding...) | And yes, you could win one of these custom silhouettes (or something else from @palomasnest if you prefer). Look at that rendition of Calvin: his facial features, his curl, his no-neck, his puffy baby chest, and his little neck fat roll. It is him to a T ❤️ #OLDgoodiesguide #OLDlovesmoms
       What I would have given to have a @zac_posen bridal gown back when I was shopping for my wedding dress! I just got to see his new bridal collection at @davidsbridal and it is beyond fab. Classic with an edge, modern twists on traditional bridal styles, in silhouettes that make all women look good, and made for the everygirl's budget too. I'm crossing my fingers for a red carpet event soon so I can wear one of his special event gowns. I'm going to share more on the blog this week so stay tuned. And the gentleman behind the gowns was just as lovely as his designs.
