Finally…The “Mad Men” Versions of Myself and Hubs

So, I finally cracked and “MadMenned” myself and Tom.  I couldn’t get it exactly right, but it was fun.  Enjoy!




Pretty cute, huh?  If only I could have gotten us in the same file!

    In a fit of rage with Charter Cable, I canceled it about a year ago, so I’ve missed out on Mad Men. Is it a good show? The fashion looks fantastic.

      I get frustrated with my service provider as well, so I hear you.

      I am not so much into the plot of the show, but the fashion and props are beyond fantastic. I can’t never figure out what is going on because I am always talking over the characters, saying things like, “Look at that dress!” and “Did you see those lamps?”

      Ha ha! Great minds think alike, I guess. That dress was so cute, it had to be picked!

    I did this too a few weeks back. Everyone on Flickr was doing it, so of course I had to too! You guys look so cute! I never thought of creating one for my hubs…I’ll have to go back.

    I adore MM – I bought the first season on DVD after the 2nd season was already over. I’d somehow missed out on it on tv (must be something to do with the fact that a 6-yr-old and a 3-yr-old command the tv around here).

    Now I’m up to the middle of the 2nd season on VOD (cool feature of FiOS). I, too, have trouble sometimes focusing with my eyes wandering crazily all over everyone’s outfit, hairstyle, makeup, the room decor, etc. But I’m really into the storyline – it’s quite different and full of surprises.

    I can photoshop it together for you in about 2 shakes. Where do you want it sent?
