Keeping Up With My Correspondence

As someone who frequents Paper Source and the Post Office on the regular, I love both shopping for stationary and mailing things to my friends and family. This past time has become almost a lifeline during the pandemic since we can’t see anyone in person.

While I love Paper Source, and I’m constantly ordering custom address labels, notepads, and stationary; I shop there so much I get a little bored of their greeting card selection. And honestly, it’s tough browsing cards online. I really love funny cards so I’ve started branching out to some specific card companies to widen the selection.

Here are my top 3 greeting card companies that you need to check out:

Sapling Press

Sapling Press is all about the simple typography, no pictures, but these cards are hilarious. I recommend checking out the Humor category. They are perfect if you want to send your friends something snarky that will make them laugh immediately. Looks like you get a discount if you order a bunch at once.

Emily McDowell

Another hilarious card company. They not only have great funny cards, but amazing empathy cards that are a little more frank than the standard sympathy cards. They also have some great motivational cards that are fun rather than mushy. Looks like they also have a buy more and save deal!

Frank & Funny

Again, these are hilarious cards. They’re a little more clever than the above two companies, so- a little more grown up. They have some great birthday cards, but also some great general funny cards. These ones are all about the funny inside message. I highly recommend.

Let me tell you, I love nothing more than putting cards in the mail. I love the idea that I’m about to make someone’s day. So go order some fun stamps, ask your friends for their mailing addresses and send out some smiles!

Favorite Things

The other day, I was in a clothing store with my mom, and she totally called me out. I picked up an off white – crew neck – pullover sweatshirt, and said, “oh, I neeeeeed this!” And she promptly responded, “Sadie, you have at least 10 of those already…”  Point taken, but she wasn’t 100% correct.

Some of them are white, and some of them are grey…

Long story short, I live for a crew neck white/off white/heather grey sweatshirt/sweater. I am not a fan of hoods on sweatshirts or jackets (I never use them and they get in the way). And I love a zipper for the right reasons, but not on my sweatshirt, thank you. So crew neck pullovers are the style for me.

So now let’s talk about all the sweatshirts I desperately need:

Let’s start with a basic at the Gap:

I could probably wear this sweater from the Loft every day:

JCrew also knows what’s up:

A little more detail from Hive & Honey at Piperlime (for your dressier sweatshirt occasions):

When I’m feeling sporty, there’s always the Athleta version that I’ve been eyeing for months because it’s a great fabric:

I am nothing, if not consistent.

Five Things

That made me smile this week:

1.She’s a Beauty” by The Tubes. David Foster mentioned it when he was out to dinner with his wife on RHOBH. He’s fluent in the language of brag, and likes to talk about the songs he wrote and people he’s worked with. But that song title sort of rang a bell so I looked it up and downloaded it immediately.

2. These pants that were in an email that Nike just sent me. Is it weird that I open a lot of the promo emails I get from stores? I’m always curious what their new stuff looks like. I think I would work out better if I was wearing these.


3. I visited Carrie in NJ with our other bestie, Karla, last weekend. I’m pretty sure we didn’t stop talking for 48 hours straight. Friends + NJ + the sun = Fantastic.

4. This picture. It’s the background on my phone because I think it shows the true essence of my older brother and myself. It makes me smile every week. (I believe it was the first day of first grade for me, so that’s why we have our game faces on, and I have a sack of stuff to put in my cubby or something)

Back to School

5. The fact that my taxes were filed, period, end of story.

How was your week?
