Back by POPULAR demand...

As most of you know, the Aden & Anais muslin blankets are probably the best baby necessity EVER! They are so lightweight yet provide enough warmth all year round and are breathable, soft, and HUGE! Then they started offering muslin with bamboo threading and they got even SOFTER. Well, the bamboo version has been on backorder for weeks but now they are back in stock so stop in if you've been waiting for them.

And for the first time ever, we also got in the Aden & Anais Dream blankets! I've gotten requests for these since we opened and am excited that we finally have them in. They feature the same great muslin in the same great size (47x47) just put together with four layers of fabric so it's a perfect multi-purpose blanket and the ideal gift for Fall and Winter babies.

New stuff!

So after a few days of software issues, I'm finally able to play catch up! Earlier this week, we got our first shipment of the Fall Tea collection for girls. My favorite piece is definitely the knit slim cut pants with zippers at the ankle that look like denim! It' s hard for me to get Lucy to wear jeans so these are perfect for her. They have the look of jeans but the comfort of knit leggings.

I also wanted to share something fun and exciting that is happening for my friend Tricia. Not only is she excited to be pregnant with her first little one, but she also has gotten the opportunity to document and share her journey through a fun site called My First Baby. I met Tricia a few months back while she was planning a baby shower for a good friend of hers. We instantly connected, probably because she is HILAROUS and so down to earth its hard not to love her. OK, and it probably didn't hurt that she has a portion of Tommy Boy as a ring tone on her phone. How can you not love that? Check out her latest video post here.

If you are a cloth diapering momma, I'm certain you have heard all the hype about the new model of the bumgenius pocket diaper...the 4.0. Well, we are fully stocked with both the snap and hook & loop versions and the three new colors: bubble(lavender), sweet(light green/blue) and noodle(ivory).

Here's a quick rundown of the new version.

Nursing covers

One of the hardest things about picking out things for the store is taking some of my personal opinion out of the equation. I have definitely learned that everyone has their own taste and preference and it's not always the same as mine. Nursing covers are one of these things. I never used one with Lucy and Holly never used one with Isabelle even though both of us nursed for a year. I always used a blanket (would have LOVED to have a muslin blanket for that purpose) so I thought a nursing cover was an unecessary waste of money. Well fast forward two years and I get at least one request a week for nursing covers! After researching for a brand that is unique to the area, I found these...

Handmade and lightweight, these covers come in a matching fabric pouch that doubles as a diapers and wipes holder. Two terry cloth interior pockets double as burpies for baby's mouth. Just look at the cute fabrics!

And as luck would have it, they also make the most adorable bandanas for little girls! I'm a sucker for hair accessories so I HAD to get these!

Have a great Monday everyone!

Snacks happen

The product we got in yesterday is one of those things that makes so much sense, it's hard NOT to have at least one of them on hand. Snack Happened reusable snack bags are great for anything and everything you would normally use a ziploc for. Why throw away bag after bag when you can just reuse one? They are FDA Approved and use a food grade lining that is lead, phthalate, and PVC FREE. Check out how cute they are?

We have more prints online and in-store so check them out!

and it begins...

Our very first shipment of Fall clothing arrived this week and I have to admit, I was pretty excited! I hate to think that summer will soon come to an end but the lull in between seasons in the fashion world can get long. I love seeing the new patterns and colors! Our first shipment was from one of my favorite lines Daily Tea.

Right now we have boy and girl baby rompers and big boy (up to 4T). Our girl line of the Tea collection has shipped and will hopefully be here before the weekend.

Also, for those of you waiting patiently for the bamboo muslin blankets, I checked again this week and it looks like they should be shipping on Monday. Hopefully I'll have them by Friday but I will keep you posted when they arrive.

Busy weekend!

Lucy and I had a busy weekend!! First stop...the Redhawks game on Friday night. I don't know if she really even noticed the baseball game but boy did she enjoy the FOOD!

Holly wasn't feeling good on Sunday so I decided to take Lucy and Isabelle to the fair! Needless to say...the girls had a BLAST!

Lucy's still working on her "picture smile".

I was so proud of both the girls. They were so good and we really had a great time.

On the store front, I just received my first Fall clothing shipment which I'll post more about tomorrow. If you haven't already, stop in to check out all the Spring/Summer mark downs! And check out what just arrived this morning....

I'd rather be doing this...

How cute are these two?
This is from a few weekends ago when, Holly, Isabelle, Lucy and I got to spend a beautiful day at the lake. It was a little windy there so we ended up coming home lounging on my patio so the girls could have some "pool time". I'm trying to get as much girl time as I can before Holly's husband comes home in a few weeks from deployment! I don't know what I'd do with out my bestie or what my little Lulu would do without her best bud Izzy.

I hope all of you enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend! If you are out and about in Fargo, be sure to stop in and check out all of the great "mark downs" on the Spring and Summer clothes! Starting today, most of this seasons items will be on SALE so check it out before everything is picked over.

For those of you out of town customers, I'll try to get the SALE prices updated on the site as soon as possible!

Enjoy your Friday!

it's a CURL!

Finally, a hair care line for babies and kids made from organic and natural products for multi ethnic babies. It can really be a challenge to find a product that isn’t too heavy, leaving their hair greasy or too light, leaving it dry. And what’s best- no harmful chemicals!

The 40% off shoes are FLYING out the door so if you are interested in picking up a pair, stop in soon! Also, I just got notice that my first shipment of Fall Daily Tea is on it's way so it's time to move the Spring & Summer line. Starting today, all Daily Tea is buy one get one and half price!

Hope to see you soon!

It's that time of year again...

Even though our Summer is just beginning, we will start to get in our Fall clothes and shoes soon so it's time to clean house! I have to admit, as much as I hate to look forward to Fall/Winter, it's so exciting to get new clothes and shoes in again.

Starting today both online & in-store, all shoes will be 40% OFF! Remember, if you are local and want to purchase online and pick them up, just enter promo code PICKUP at checkout.

I hope you all had a wonderful and safe 4th weekend. Lucy sure enjoyed her fireworks, sparklers, and smoke bombs.

Who says golf is boring?

A few pieces from this line arrived yesterday and it's definitely moved to the top of the list of one of my FAVORITE boy brands! It's a stylish, sharp, golf-inspired collection for boys consisting of shirts, shorts, pants, caps and accessories. Think country club meets cool. Even better yet, it's an eco-friendly brand that crafts most of their pieces from ultra-soft and sustainable bamboo/spandex. Their inspiration: to put a hip spin on golf’s signature style, for cool swagger on and off the course. Check these out...

Can you stand it???
