Origami Owl Independent Designer

On January 3, 2012 a new journey began for me! I became an Origami Owl Independent Designer. For those of you who don't know who or what Origami Owl is- Origami Owl is a new company designed by a sweet 16 year old named Bella! It is living lockets that tell your story but really they are more like a walking scrapbook. You design them how you want them, to your style, and to tell your story! You choose one of the lockets, charms to put in it, a chain, some dangles, plates that fit in, and then it comes to you in this ADORABLE little package. The package was like giving yourself a fit when I received mine. They have so many charms to choose from- food, occupations, birthstones, letters, numbers, vintage, etc. you name it and they have it!
Recently, Ryan and I made the decision for me to go back to being a stay at home mom and working with Origami Owl and my bow business Bayou Bows. Well Thursday night I quit my job! I was supposed to a while ago but finally decided to take the plunge. We are in the process now. I'm excited and nervous at the same time! I am determined to succeed between my two businesses! Interested in hosting an online or catalog party? Or ordering a locket for that special someone? Leave a comment or email me!

Lexi Turns TWOodles recap!

We had Lexi's birthday party on December 8, 2012. I had been planning and crafting for months anxiously awaiting the day! It turned out just how I envisioned it and it was so much Fun! I wish I could upload pictures to show y'all. We had a 'hot dog bar', a photo area complete with props, and a Minnie Mouse bow candy bar! For favors we had salt dough shoe ornaments painted pink and bows for the girls with matching bowties for the little boys! We got some really great pictures from the photo wall and It was hands down, the best party ever! So much fun. Lexi really enjoyed herself and got so very spoiled, as usual. :) I can't wait to plan her party for next year! I hope it's as awesome as this one was!

Lexi 2 years Old

Lexi you are almost 25 months old! You turned two almost a month ago. These last two years have been the best years of my life and I am so very excited for the many more to come! You have grown and changed so much and we love you more every single day.
You weigh 23 lbs and 2 ounces an are 33 inches tall. Which puts you in the 5-10 percentile for your weight and 25th percentile for your height!
You are in cloth diapers still but today you started potty training. I am determined. You are so ready, I think it is just a learning process.
You are still tiny. You wear anywhere from 12 month clothes to 2T. 2T is huge on you but we try to make them Work!
You are wearing a size 4-5 shoe.
You are sleeping through the night, still co-sleeping. You head to bed around 10 and wake up around 7-8. You are taking one nap a day, usually an hour long.
Your talking has pretty much made a complete turn around! You talk constantly and people can understand about half , or more of what you say.
You are really into baby dolls, Minnie Mouse, and your little people. You play by yourself really great. Books are one of your favorite things still. And you are wanting a brother or sister!

Keep growing baby girl! We love you so much.
