Bitty Bows Boutique Review & Free Gift w/ Purchase!

As many of you know I'm a lover...a lover of baby hair accessories! So when Kelly, owner and creator of Bitty Bows Boutique asked me to review her product I of course said, Yes!

I received this adorable "Allie" Felt Flower Headband to review and let me tell you, I absolutely love it!

 Here are a few of the things I love the most about this headband: The elastic has the perfect stretch for Julianna; it's not so tight that it was squishing her head and it's not so loose that it was slipping off her head every 3 seconds, the flower has an intricate and durable design that has already withstood Julianna's grip on several occasions & it comes in a variety of colors {Julianna is wearing “Shocking Pink”}.

 Bitty Bows Boutique sells a huge variety of baby bows,  baby clippies, baby headbands, and flower clips all handmade for our little beauties! A special feature found at  Bitty Bows Boutique is the No-Slip Clip”, these are made especially for those little ladies who may be lacking in the hair department and this ensures that even near baldies can wear beautiful clippies & bows. Give Bitty Bows Boutique a try and order your little lady something special. I know you will love them just as much as Julianna and I do!

And now a special promotion for my faithful readers!!! Bitty Bows Boutique is offering ONE FREE "Allie" Felt Flower Headband with any purchase of $35 or more!! Enter this coupon code at checkout- AllieHeadbandReview. This promotion is good through February 28th!

Jules:The Shark Whisperer

Last week {before everyone became a pukey mess} Julianna had her first trip to the aquarium! I love sea life, so I have been wanting to take her for awhile and I am so glad we were finally able to go! She had such a great time walking{yes, she is a walker now!} around and exploring. Whenever we would move on to a new exhibit Jules would get super excited and just had to press her face right up to the glass to get a good look! Her favorite part of the day? I would definitely say it was the shark and stingray touch tank. I could not get her away from there! I thought she was going to be a little nervous...nope! She was so focused and loved every minute!! I love watching her explore new things, it's like I'm exploring for the first time too.

Uncle & Jules 

 Sharks developing in their eggs. I thought this was really neat!

 My favorite: Seahorses

Giant Lobster!

The sea lions were playing together. So cute!

AHHH! Sharks!!

Those little things sticking up from the sand are garden eels 

Guess what? I will be doing my very first  product review tomorrow! It is for one of my very favorite hair accessories!! You will also get a special offer, so make sure you visit us tomorrow!! :)

Saturday= no puke or explosions! yay! Just copious amounts of boogies and crankiness .

Sunday= no puke!! Hit hard with 2 rounds of  explosions {from baby not hubby...just in case you weren't sure.} which= outfit & sheet changes & more laundry at 2:30am.

Sorry for all this talk about puke and poop. Tis the life of a mommy I guess!

Ladybugs &Polka dots:Julianna's 1st Birthday!

 We celebrated  on Sunday, and I must say, Julianna is so blessed to have such great family and friends! Even with the rain trying to spoil our fun! Can you believe it? We had  been having such beautiful weather here in SoCal the last few weeks and on party day of ALL days, it has to rain a couple of times throughout the day! Luckily the sun managed to peek through and we were still able to have a fun party!

I have TONS of pictures to share so I will be posting some today and the rest tomorrow!

This is the front of house. The ladybugs in the grass are from Michaels. They are wooden masks that I just painted pink and green. Best part? They were only a dollar!

The ribbon wreath made by me!
