Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

Holden's first birthday is less than a month away. I'm still going with a bright and colorful first birthday party theme, though I've adjusted a bit to be less "rainbow" and more "You are my sunshine," whatever that means. These puppies hit mailboxes last week:Girl's First Birthday Party Invitation - including clothing size and likes on the back to help with gift-giving @ohbotherblog

I went the Tiny Prints route because I find them and Shutterfly to be the most stress-free for invite (and announcement, Christmas cards, etc.) shopping.

Mr. B told me that including Holden's clothing size and things she likes on the back of the invite was rude. I thought of it as being "helpful." What do you think?
