clemmie sue...

I can't believe that I have NEVER mentioned Clemmis Sue on my blog! My sister and I started our headband company, Clemmie Sue last summer and have absolutely LOVED the creative process that goes into making adorable hair accessories. We started out by making headbands for adults and have naturally gone into baby headbands as well. We have an etsy shop:
Please feel free to take a look! Here is a sneak peak of some of our newest pieces for all of the Baby Sue's out there: (they will be updated in the shop throughout the next few days)


Well nothing too exciting has been going on here.
Eric broke his foot last week. I'll spare you from seeing the disgusting pictures.
A boat on a trailer smashed 3 bones.
Pretty gross.
Harlow is just as cute as ever. She LOVES having daddy home!
We feel like she gets older and smarter each day! I can't handle it!
Eric and I were talking about a family that owns the drugstore that we go to. I love it there. They know everyone by name. It feels like we're in a tiny town in the 1950's.
Anyways, Eric was telling me that one of the sons has SIX daughters!!! I quickly told Eric how awesome I thought that would be...just imagine! 6 Harlows running around! I would be in heaven.
Eric quickly cut me off by saying, if that ever did happen, his biggest concern would be having a house full of females "on the same schedule". I almost choked on my food from laughing so hard.
I think his medication makes him funnier. He doesn't seem to edit his thoughts before he speaks...hilarious.

a little DIY project...

My little sis, Julie's birthday is just before Christmas and so I was racking my brain trying to think of a cute do-it-yourself project for her special day, especially since her main gift was for Christmas. I woke up in the middle of the night with the perfect idea!! My mom's temple bag was cute and simple AND has a lot of sentimental meaning, so I decided to update it a little bit for Jules... I love it! She loves it! It turned out great! I really hope she holds onto it for awhile and one day...MANY MANY years from now, she can use it when she goes to the temple:)

This is the bag before:

And after...

The 3 T's...

Things have been a tad bit on the whiny side over in toddler land.
Poor Harlow babe is Teething.
Blasted molars!
The only items of comfort that we have around here (besides a paci and doggie of course) to make things a little bit better at the end of the day are:
Tutus and Toy story

I'm sorry my little munchkin, I wish I could go through the teething process for you.

Harlow's 1st trip to the ZOO!

I have been dying to take Harlow to the zoo because she is obsessed with animals! Eric didn't have to work on New Year's Eve so we decided it would be a perfect day to go. Well guess what...she LOVED it! It was so fun to watch her get so excited when she saw animals that she recognized. The LA zoo is huge and of course right as we were getting ready to head down hill, she decides to be miss independent and refused to do anything but walk on her own. She is so funny!! She is very opinionated and knows what she wants. We tried our best to get her to allow us to hold her hand so she wouldn't have too many face plants on the cement:) By the end, she was exhausted and fell asleep within seconds of putting her in her stroller. We are planning on getting annual passes because it was such a fun, easy day trip and totally worth it to see her get so excited:)
