Nine Year Wedding Anniversary!

My husband and I just celebrated our nine year wedding anniversary on June 19th. I would have blogged about it on that date, BUT I didn't have a blog then, so this is a belated tribute to our amazing 9 years!

We first met in Drama class in Highschool. I was 15, he was 16 (I was too young to date then). I had a bit of a crush on him, I thought he was so cute and so funny. I loved the way he made me laugh! Over the next couple of years we would run into eachother, he would say hi to me as I was cheering at a football game, and I would be so frustrated that he didn't ask for my phone number! Then when I was a Senior, he applied at the local Dry Cleaner's which just so happened to be where I worked, and where my Mom was the supervisor. I gave rave reviews about Stephen and how she should totally hire him, and the rest is history. We were only 19 and 20 when we got married, and shipped straight off to Virginia where we were stationed with the Navy (he was in the Navy, not me!) We lived there for 5 years and are now happily back home in Texas with our family. We have three beautiful boys now... more on them on a later date!

Happy Anniversary Stephen!

So much to do......

So my blog is so far in the "infant" stages, with what little exta time I have, I plan on updating somewhat frequently. I had wondered if I should have one for family, and one for my business, but since I want both, but don't really have the time for TWO blogs on top of TWO Myspaces, a website AND my Etsy shop, one will have to do for now! And I of course need to start adding lots more blogging friends to my page! This blogging world will be fun!

For today I need to get back to the house, sewing and taking care of kids. I will also be working on adding some more of these fabulous cloth rattle balls for babies to my shop. So check out my shop in the future for more goodies!

My bean bags are featured on Etsy!

Yay! I was so excited to see that my bean bags from my Etsy shop was featured on Etsy's Gift Guide! Etsy admin hunts down great products from Etsy sellers and organizes them into categorized gift guides. They look for unique items, with great photos and choose very few out of the thousands of items on Etsy. I decided to browse around the Gift Guides and was pleasantly surprised to see my bean bags on the first page of the Children's Category! Yay me!

To Blog or Not to Blog....

...that is the question. So it took some time for me to convert to myspace, and even longer to start to blog. After seeing my sister's amazingly adorable blog, among many many others, I just couldn't resist any longer. I'm totally new to blogging and I am hoping I will figure out soon how to make mine just as gorgeous and appealing as my sister's. For a total feast for the eyes, check her Little Lovables blog out... right now!

For today I will keep it short and sweet, and hopefully soon I will have some clever things to write about!
