It's MY SITS Day!!!

After 47 years,  about 1 year of waiting, it is FINALLY my SITS day!  I honestly was shocked when I got the email last month that my blog would finally be featured.  I am very excited and honored to be featured on SITS, which stands for The Secret in the Sauce.  It's an amazing community of fellow bloggers who support eachother through comments.  Its a simple and ingenious way to meet other bloggers! 

A little bit about me...I am currently a stay at home mom to two elementary aged boys.  I decided back in 2009 that it'd be fun to open up my own little boutique style store and I started selling tutu's!  Yeah, I live with a bunch of boys, but make tutu's - kind of ironic, isn't it?!  It's definitely been a journey and for those of you who own your own small, online business, you can attest to the fact that it takes a lot of hard work, time and marketing of your product....

Anyway, I am just so happy that you have stopped by my blog!  Besides writing about my tutu's, I also talk about food (who doesn't love a peanut butter bon bon?!), books, crafts and other bloggers to keep things interesting!  My posts are usually pretty short, as my attention span is not at all long these days.  I totally blame that on parenting two rowdy kids!  So, in my promise to keep things short, I will sign off for now....thanks for visiting and come back soon!!

Valentine's Day and the Matching Tutu

OK, so I have to confess, I am not a big fan of Valentine's Day.  It's weird because I grew up in a home where I got Valentine candies and gifts from my parents and grandparents.  We'd do the red foods and heart shaped meatloaf (which is about the only Valentine tradition I do) and all that jazz.  Once I got married though, I just figured I was done with Valentine's Day.  Here's the biggest reason.   DH's birthday is in November, Christmas is in December and our anniversary is in January.  By February, if he doesn't know he's loved, he needs to open his eyes and unplug his ears :).  As for our kids, we still say Happy Valentine's and do the heart shaped meatloaf but w aren't big candy eaters, so all the chocolates and sweet goodies are out (hence the meatloaf).  I try to keep it simple and most importantly, show my boys that they are loved every day of the year.  Please don't think I am anti-Valentine's day, I'm really not, it's just that, we keep our little traditions low key and minimal when it comes to this day!

Now if I had a daughter and could get her all dressed up in something super cute, I might change my tune :).  I made this Sweetheart tutu, for those that like to go all out for Valentine's Day and want to dress up that little Valentine in their life!  It's made with shimmery pink, red and white tulle, with a white satin ribbon covered in hearts.   Too cute!
