Shut the front door part 2!

Dear readers, something amazing happened to me yesterday.  Remember Sunday night when I posted about how amazing Howard Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax are?  Well, the OWNER OF THE COMPANY emailed me to thank me for my kind words, tell me it's awesome that I like to restore old furniture, and also tell me if I emailed him my mailing address he would send me a box of their other products for free!

UH.....let me think about it.....OKAY!  This news was worth a beer toast!
Eric Howard is a very interesting guy, and the story of the company is pretty awesome.  Eric runs the company with his brother Kevin, and Howard Products was actually started in their childhood home's garage by their dad in 1969!  They used to come home from school and fill bottles for their supper every night - now that is quality family time, right?  Now they have 25 employees and their products are sold in huge chains like Home Depot and Ace.  Rad!  At this point, it's time for you all to get a little goofy....
...because I'm probaby going to have a little Howard product giveaway soon!  Also, aren't photo booths at weddings so fun?  I may have to make this happen for ours....

We had a photobooth at our wedding and it was a absolute hit. We got a DVD with all of the photos and I have great memories and blackmail pictures. :-)

Love the photo booth idea - you should totally do it.

I totally agree with the awesomeness of photo booths at weddings. We couldn't decide whether or not to have one at ours and ultimately decided not to. Let me tell you I have regretted the decision ever since.
