I read a lot of blogs. A lot a lot. But there are only a handful of blogs that I read on a daily basis. One of those in my “top five” is Late Enough, written by fellow blogger and zombie aficionado, Alex. She’s a planner, she’s delightfully funny, and she’s a Super Mom (i.e., the kind of Mom I hope to be one day.) And did I mention that her husband is always enthusiastic about participating in her blog? (Hint hint, Brian…)
In short, I am a major Late Enough groupie. It’s true.
One average, run-of-the-mill Wednesday back in March, I was enjoying my daily dose of Late Enough humor with a blog post titled “What I Did Instead of Writing A Thoughtful Post.” I smiled. I recognized a few of my own best procrastination techniques. I even giggled a few times. But it wasn’t until I got to the bottom of the posts and read the tags that I literally laughed out loud.
Alex never misses a chance to draw a laugh out of her audience, even if it happens in the tags (which, let’s face it, most people don’t bother to read.) I, however, try to create silly tags for my own posts so I always read them. And this one has to be, hands down, my favorite tag, ever. And so, in true worshiper fashion, I left Alex a comment.
I laughed when I read her response, totally assuming that she was just being her witty self again, even in the comment form. I went about my day, occasionally picturing unicorns dancing in my head, but never putting much more thought into her request for an Abby Gabs Photoshopped graphic….
….Until she called me out on Twitter a few days later.
Needless to say, I was thrilled beyond belief that Alex wanted to collaborate with me on a Late Enough project. Naturally, it had to be PERFECT. So I spend a couple of days choosing the right images, deliberating over the perfect fonts, reworking the wording of the selection.
After about a week, Alex and I had come up with a graphic we both loved. And just a few days ago, that graphic was released for purchase, worldwide, on Alex’s Zazzle shop.
That’s right, readers. You can now own your very own Late Enough/Abby Gabs t-shirt, coffee mug, or bumper sticker!!

I truly couldn’t be more excited about this if I tried. Getting to work with Alex was so much fun, and I’m secretly keeping my fingers crossed that she’ll think of another graphic idea that she wants soon. I am her slave in the Photoshop world.
In the meantime, if you love unicorns and sarcasm, this might just be the graphic for you. Feel free to visit the Late Enough Zazzle Shop in order to tweak your design. You can choose different t-shirt styles, colors, and fits. You can also choose between a plethora of different coffee mugs.
It’s everything that is awesome about Late Enough and Abby Gabs, all smooshed into one picture. After all, what could be better than unicorns, sarcasm, and pretty colors? Well, I’ll tell you. A coffee delivery system with unicorns, sarcasm, and pretty colors, that’s what.
