Till Monday (squeee!).

  • Erin

    “Kermit Arm Flail,


    My favorite sign-off ever.

    • Zan

      I told you Meg! I told you I knew there was a #KermitArmFlail coming, and there it is :) I must have a nose for it or something.

      • Kinzie Kangaroo

        Ahhhhh! I thought so too!

    • Bessa

      I read it and instantly decided to use it all.the.time. For surely there are no situations in which a good muppeting would not be appropriate!

      • Zan

        Bessa, that is a fact.

  • Sharon


  • Jen W


    I’m sorry to shout, but your sign off just made me so so very happy on this summer Friday.
    Also, dude what is it? What’s going on?!? Now I’m flailing.

  • Annie

    Major intrigue! And I love the marriage = equality design; so simple, so elegant, so true.

  • bec

    Can’t wait can’t wait!! And I love the Kermit arm flail, made me laugh!

  • Diana


  • Katie Mae

    Is it Monday yet?

  • Kathleen


    And that’s all I’m saying about it for now.

    • meg

      Unless they come to your house with really nice booze, right?

      • Kimberly

        Well now we know who we have to bribe . . .

        • Erin

          I think Alyssa is probably more bribe-able… (see below)

          • Kimberly

            New plan: divide and conquer.

      • Kathleen

        If someone can send me some Strawberry Abita I’ll send them details and PDFs. Just sayin’.

  • ElfPuddle

    You are such a tease.

    That is all.

    And now I join in the flailing.

  • craftosaurus

    Eeeeeeee! Is it Monday yet?

    (I don’t think I’ve wished for a Monday to get here, ever!)

  • GeePuff

    Oh man, “Kermit Arm Flail,” It is SO about the little things. After a week of just barely being able to keep my cheese on my cracker, this totally made my day/week/month!

    Cannot wait for Monday’s surprise. In honor of it’s coming, I’m going to go honky tonking in Nashville (really it’s my bachelorette, but it can be part a celebration of APW).

    • Jen

      “just barely being able to keep my cheese on my cracker” is cracking me up!

  • Alyssa


    And I can’t be bribed. Not even with candy. Or stickers. Or a pony.

    Not even with a Kate Spade purse, filled with candy, covered in stickers and delivered by a white pony in a crown!!
    (email alyssa [at] apracticalwedding [dot] com for shipping address.)

    • Erin

      You guys are such teases. All of you. Alyssa, Snowflake the pony will be arriving at your door tomorrow morning. She’ll be carrying a KS purse AND custom KS saddlebags filled with Starbursts. She’ll even poop stickers for you.

      • Linsey

        And I’m throwing in a snuggly kitten who makes chocolate and red velvet cupcakes while you sleep. Fo’ reals.

        • ElfPuddle

          I’m adding a cute puppy whose feet are way too big but still sews like Martha Stewart on crack. And has his own Serger.

          • Alyssa

            Y’all, if I wake up tomorrow and I’m pony/kitten/puppy-less, we will have to have some words.

          • ElfPuddle

            Alyssa, the puppy was returned to sender. I don’t know what happened, but he’s setting up his Serger in my living room. I’m sorry he didn’t arrive at yours. Good thing it’s almost Monday!

    • kari

      Have you seen the Kate Spade bike? I could be bribed for one of those (with a rack of cupcakes on the back, driven by Jon Hamm) but probably no one could get it to me by Monday…

  • Jen

    hot damn! is this why you’re waking up in a (good) panic??!!

    i refuse to wish away this weekend, but damn right i’ll be logging in bright and early Monday morning!!

  • lady brett

    so, um, i’m confused, but…

    that is the prettiest logo i’ve ever seen!
    it’s simplicity and not-grey color give me butterflies.

    and i want to know what in the world is going on.

  • Jessica

    Ahhh! Grellow! I’m so excited!

  • Ms. Bunny

    I’m so glad I’m catching up on APW the day before the big announcement instead of having to wait all weekend to find out what it is. I mean, if it’s #kermitarmflail worthy, it must be good.
