Letting the Cat Out of the Bag

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

I'm sure many of you have noticed my major neglect of this sweet blog. And several weeks ago I told you all that I promised once I was able to share with you guys, you'd see that it was totally worth it. Well, today is the day that I finally get to share the reason for my absence. I'm excited to introduce my Pure and Noble family to my new baby... Fresh BiB.

The hubs and I have spent the past four months developing and producing Fresh BiB and mercy it has been a lot of work. But so worth it. What is Fresh BiB, you ask? Well, we're a monthly subscription to one-of-a-kind designer bibs. And you thought diapers were the only things you could get delivered monthly! ha ha ha

We're not just a bib though... Our bandana bibs are 100% cotton, reversible, made in the USA, have snap closures and come in a reusable container. Oh, and the fabric design/print is a surprise each month. You never know what you're gonna get! (We think mommies deserve a few fun surprises - mixed in with some high-fives and hugs - each month for all the hard work they do every day.)
I hope you guys will stop by and say "hi"; I'd love to hear your thoughts. I can't even begin to tell you how excited we are and how much fun this has been to just get off the ground. Thank you all for hanging out and not dropping like flies while I've been gone. To show my deepest gratitude, I'd like to offer my Pure and Noble family a 20% discount for the rest of July.

Saying Goodbye Sale

Thursday, July 10, 2014

With the upcoming launch of Fresh BiB, it's time to officially say goodbye to Etsy for good. It was a great experience, but their market is just too over-saturated and it's tough to get noticed. Besides, all of my focus is going into our new business and I no longer have time for one of a kind pieces. Will you help me clear out my shop? Enter coupon code: GOODBYE40 to receive 40% off ALL items in the shop. From pillows to bandana bibs, there's something for everyone.
Get your goodies before they're all gone! xo

Never Forget

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

They say elephants never forget. I don't know who "they" are, but "they" say this. Why? Do elephants really have a good memory? How is this proven anyway? However the saying came about, I'll tell you what I never forget...pregnancy, birthing my boys and those first challenging months with a newborn. "They" also say that you forget the hard parts and the pain of childbirth. Wrong! Wrong-y wrong. Wrong-o! I remember it all. Truth is, I don't think moms really forget. I think the good stuff is just so darn good and overwhelmingly abundant that we don't care about the hard parts and the pain. It's worth it and we make the choice to do it all over again. But we remember. It's moms that never forget and we love bigger than our hearts ever thought possible.
And if you're wondering why I'm having all these thoughts...I think all of my recent envelopment in baby world has me longing. But that train left the station a loooooong time ago. So I'll just fall madly in love with my littles (that are becoming big) all over again today, only a little bit deeper. I'm a mom - it's what we do. xo

Around the House: Painted Front Doors

Monday, July 7, 2014

Hello Monday. I'm greeting you with a freshly painted front door. It finally happened... the goodness of mint is covering my entryway. I hope to snap some pics today so that I can show the big reveal sometime this week. In the meantime, here are some amazing painted doors that show just why I feel in love with greeting guests in color!
I rest my case. Color glorious color! Hope this brightens your Monday after the long holiday weekend. xo

4th of July Inspiration

Thursday, July 3, 2014

If you're anything like me, you've put off planning any 4th of July activities and now you're scrambling to put something together last minute. Fear not. There are millions of clever folks out there that have gone before us, creating the perfect crafts and food fare for tomorrow's celebration. And to them I say, thank you and God bless you! And thank you Pinterest for being a one stop idea place for all procrastinators. ha ha ha.

In my pretend world I'm having a family gathering at the beautiful table above with a bounty of fruit cobblers, pies and Blue Bell ice cream. The littles are running around in handmade patriotic tees with bubble wands and crafted faux fireworks and sparklers. And the adults are drinking delicious blueberry jam and gin cocktails while playing corn hole. Then reality sets in and I'm brought back to real like where my husband is still out of town, my kids are currently bickering and tonight we are braving the crowds of my sister's town square in hopes of having some "small town" fun.

If you're up for any last minute prep, here are some fun ideas... I happen to love the paper cups below that could easily be painted by littles in different designs so that everyone knows who's cup is who's.

As dreary as today seems, I know tomorrow is a new day. A day to be grateful for all the men and women that have gone before me and those that still fight today for our freedom. It is a beautiful thing this freedom that we often take for granted. It changes everything and I am so grateful to live in America. What are your plans for the fourth? xo
