Backpacks for you little ones!

If your little one needs a backpack for preschool, kindergarten, or just for fun, then we have the backpack for you! Skip Hop makes these adorable Zoo Packs. Isabelle immediately declared the penguin a "must have" the minute she saw it.

Right now we have the Penguin and the Mouse in stock. Next week the Puppy will arrive and the Monkey will be here mid-August. I wasn't able to get a picture of the Monkey backpack, but believe me when I tell you it is just as cute as the rest!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Hope for Holly

Ok, first let me say this is not Holly, Pout Holly, it's another friend that needs our help.

Holly Bergo has been diagnosed with lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM)...a rare lung disorder. There is no cure or effective treatment for LAM, and doctors have told Holly that a double lung transplant is her only hope for a second chance at life. Come support Holly and help raise much needed funds to cover this costly procedure and follow-up care.

To help with some of these costs, Holly's friends and family have put together a benefit for her this Friday, July 31 from 6pm-11pm at the Fargo Holiday Inn.

They have lined up some amazing silent auction items (including a fun Pout basket of course), live DJ (John from BOB 95), and a whole lot more to make this a great night. Please plan to join us. Tickets can be purchased for $25 each at the door.

If you can't make it on Friday, but would like to donate please head to

Thanks and I hope to see you Friday!

I had a case of the Mondays...

when I got up this morning. Lucy came home this weekend with a terrible diaper rash so she was up quite a bit last night which means my night consisted of very little sleep too! Anyway, you know the routine....hurry to get ready so I can get her up and ready, run out the door to make it to daycare in time for Lucy to get breakfast, run back home and finish getting ready, run to the store, run to the bank, run to get coffee, back to the store to frantically clean up the mess I left when I closed on Saturday and's already 10am and I'm ready for a nap. Yep, it was a severe case of the Mondays until a nice man came to deliver this.

The amazing and sweet girls Dani and Sheri with On the Minds of Moms, sent us this with a beautiful card for our upcoming one year anniversary! I can't even tell you how much we appreciate this. Holly and I met these girls over a year ago now and clicked with them instantly. They were embarking on their journey with On the Minds of Moms at the same time we were frantically pulling together last minute details for the store. Somehow it was comforting to know that we weren't the only crazy girls that jumped into a new and scary venture in hopes to better our lives and the lives of our kids along with offering something to our community that we felt very passionate about. Thank you are an inspiration to us and we are proud to know you! Check them out on
Happy Monday!

Bink Link pacifier clips

Much to my dentist sisters dismay, my little Lucy was a pacifier LOVER. Any mom with a child that uses a pacifier regularly knows the frustration of the constant dropping and losing the precious pacifier. Bink Link pacifier clips are the perfect solution! This month they have just came out with an entirely NEW line with so many fun designs like gumball, candy necklace, and even one with little skulls for those punk rock babies. Check them out...

Pretty cute huh?
Hope you have a great weekend!

I know, I've been a bad blogger....

So partly because I couldn't find any creative juices this week, and partly because I was having too much fun reading new comments every day, I haven't blogged for a whole week. Sorry! I follow blogs daily and get really ANNOYED when things aren't updated frequently so I do honestly understand and again, I apologize. This got me to thinking that I should share one of our favorite blogs which is If you haven't run across this blog yet (I'm sure MANY of you have) it is an absolute must read for moms! The author of the blog, Heather Armstrong, was actually just recently listed on Forbes list of the 30 most influential women in media so she's no joke people! She is hilarious and so honest about motherhood and marriage. I do have to say however that she is also known to throw out curse words here and there so if you are easily offended by that sort of thing you probably don't want to check it out.

In other news, summer is coming to an end which became apparent this week when all of our Fall lines started sending out the shipping notices. Yes, fall clothes will start arriving this week which is exciting but sort of depressing too! I honestly am excited to see some of the great pieces we have coming because Holly and I actually knew more about the process this time around and were able to make more informed decision (if that's possible for us two shopaholics who want one of everything)! In fact, our nice UPS man is walking in with no less than 5 boxes for me as we speak....or as I know what I mean.

Oh and I guess I should announce the winner of our beautiful Rag & Bone brag book.....Jolene (of Jeff and Jo). Congratulations! Now bring that cute little "S" in and pick up your prize!

Thanks SO MUCH for all of your sweet posts! Holly and I are so grateful to all of you and can't believe that after a year we are so lucky to have met so many great people. Keep checking the blog for new fall lines and also some exciting events coming soon.....

New member of the Pout family

We've all been waiting patiently for my sister to deliver the very FIRST boy in our family and after suffering through 13 days over her due date, he's finally here.

Have a great weekend!

Wet happened!

Aside from the cute name "wet happened" wet bags are reusable, washable, eco-friendly, and of course CUTE! Use for anything wet that you need to contain while on the go....cloth diapers, swim suits, wet clothing....anything you need. Because they have a zipper closure, they work great to contain the smells of anything you put inside (especially diapers).

We also received our Glitzy Gals washable nursing pads. I can't tell you how useful these would've been for me while I was nursing! The fact that they are reusable is a bonus for the environment but they are also so much softer than those uncomfortable disposable ones. They are lined with absorbent and eco-friendly bamboo which is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and deodorizing. It also helps to naturally wick breast milk from skin. Nursing is a hard enough job in itself so I'm all for anything that can make the process more comfortable! And the best part??? When you're done nursing they work great in the tub to suds up your little ones!
Have a great week!

mmmmmmm, I LOVE Cake

Cake bags I mean (ok, so maybe I love the other kind of cake too but that's a whole other issue). Petunia Picklebottom is one of our favorite diaper bag companies but seriously, the "Cake" line clutches we received today are to die for! Not only do these offer all the great features and quality of Petunia diaper bags but I'm seriously considering buying one to use as a purse too! They are beautiful.....

Can you stand it??? We also received a few other styles from their original line that are gorgeous too so you'll have to stop in and check them out.

And for all of you who commented on our skincare post....thank you! Samantha is our lucky winner so please call the store at 701-356-7688 or email to arrange pick up for your goodies!

Enjoy this beautiful Wednesday!
