The Pink Llama Shop.

We would like to welcome back The Pink Llama Shop! We are so excited to feature your beautiful designs again!

Friends, I don’t know if you all recall but back in August we featured The Pink Llama Shop’s personalized sock monkey onesie. It was a huge hit! Olive wears her onesie all the time and we get a ton of comments on how cute it is.

Isn’t it fabulous?!!




We are proud to be featuring The Pink Llama Shop‘s Ivory Rosette headband today. This headband is so gorgeous.

Every little detail is so well crafted. We love the button in the center and the bird nesting just pulls the whole look together.


This stunning headband would be perfect to compliment wedding attire (think flower girl),  pulling a Christmas outfit together, attending special functions or anytime.

Olive wore her headband out to pick apples, because who says you can’t look adorable doing so, right?!!

We would also like to take this opportunity to show off this sweet little Turkey Clip, also from The Pink Llama Shop! Totally perfect for Thanksgiving!


Please check out The Pink Llama Shop today to see Jodie’s newest creations. She offers alot of variety and personalization in her shop.

You can also join on facebook to take part in their giveaways, coupon codes and specials!

Please let them know Olive sent you!!

Happy Thursday.

I’m nice. and thankful.

Last night at dinner out of the blue, Olive comes up with these words and I have no idea where she heard this… “I’m nice!”

But this mama likes it.

She would take a bite and we would hear “I’m nice” coming from her tiny little girl voice all throughout dinner in between bites and she would smile her giant smile.

Really it was just the sweetest thing and I hope someday when she knows exactly what these words mean that she can say them to herself and to others with confidence and think the best of herself. Because confidence is a powerful thing.


Today we attended an annual Thanksgiving lunch at school, complete with all the fixin’s.

We were so happy to see Brandon, to spend time with him and talk about how his day was going.

We are happy to make this our family’s tradition every year.

So thankful. So very very thankful for this beautiful family I have.

I’m really so thankful for a lot of things this year…so many wonderful opportunities have come our way, and like all good things there have also been many letdowns too. It’s weird how life has so many twists and turns and bumps in the road yet somehow we keep going, pushing through it.

Challenges and obstacles, our life is full of them but luckily it’s mostly filled with happiness.


Olive and I are working on some product photography this afternoon that we will be posting tomorrow… oh and she and I are collecting apples, piling apples, throwing apples, using apples in place of bowling balls…yeah all that fun stuff that involves apples!

Happy Wednesday.

Brandon and Olive In Gorno Couture

Lisa at Gorno Couture sent Brandon and Olive these really cute super sized initial long sleeved  shirts. The long sleeves are perfect for these falls days that have approached us and these shirts are so soft and comfortable.

We love the chunky yarn stitching too! So perfect! Brandon says he is wearing his Gorno Couture shirt to school tomorrow to show his friends and his teachers.

Gorno Couture also offers  number shirts in regular size and super size as well! Think birthdays, hint hint!

I love that these shirts are customizable, t-shirt or 3/4 sleeve,  from the color of your shirt, to the color felt you would like, right down to the color of yarn stitching.  How cool are these?!

They make adult sizes too, which i think would be perfect for an anniversary photo shoot! Great for family portraits or group shots too.  The possibilities are endless!

Head over to Gorno Couture and let Lisa know Brandon and Olive sent you…

Become a fan of their Facebook page to be in-the-know of occasional sales and promos!

I spy a super cute Ghastly Ghost at Gorno Couture! Do ghosts come any cuter? I think not, especially with chunky yarn stitching!!
