OMGosh! Has it been that long since I've written a blog post??? My life hasn't been that busy...has it?
Being Supermommy is a Blessing more often than not, but it's the 'not' times that make us question what the heck we are thinking half of the time. For instance, my hubby and I made the decision a long time ago to homeschool, which is awesome. We feel that God has led us to follow through on this course of Christ-centered education, so I'm happy I have a hubby who is on the same page as I am with that. Of course, since I'm the SAHM, I will primarily (and most certainly) be the one teaching our son & any children to come. But I don't really STAY home. As a matter of fact, having this Etsy business keeps me pretty busy during the day and most of the night, working often into the wee hours of the morning. And burning the candle at both ends doesn't prevent me from awaking at 8 a.m. and dragging through my home making breakfast, feeding our cats, feeding the neighborhood cat colonies (yes I DO help to trap/spay/neuter too), preparing our lesson for the day, checking emails, fiddling with social networks, writing my play & my christian childrens book series, dishes, housework, laundry, shopping/ to-do lists, phone calls, meet-ups/ playdates and spending quality time with my son...while petting the cats. Makes me want to just run off screaming down the street, like in a Looney Toons episode. Why CAN"T we just go Daffy Duck on our responsibilities? Moms deserve to have a mini breakdown and well as a mini vacation too!
I get to stay home and raise my son. How awesome is that? I get to nap once in a blue moon too. I also have some great pets and a hubby who works hard so that I can stay home & raise our kiddo. I'm in a new playgroup which seems absolutely awesome and we're about to join a christian homeschooling network of folks who can actually help me get the hang of this home educator thing. Whew! That is a lot! And I didn't even get to the part of my sweet extended family, my best friends back home, my growing boutique business, going back to college in the fall and shedding 70 pounds. Sure I'd like more sleep and my house looks like we just got out of the Wizard of Oz tornado, but I'm getting there. With God's help ALL THINGS are possible, so I'm going to keep moving forward and being the best "me" possible.

Ruffles Ribbons N' Bows Boutique will be moving in a different direction. I've decided to focus primarily on tutus and tutu dresses. Oh sure, I'll still offer crib shoes, hairbows, bow holders, legwarmers, flower clips and more, but I'm figuring out more effective and unique ways to do so. Be on the lookout for our new look as well. We'll have a different logo and boutique look as well, so check back in with us in a week or two.
We'll be offering Couture Easter tutu dresses, M2M Gymboree hairbows & tutu sets, and Unique themed tutu sets & tutu dresses. I'm looking forward to going on this fashion journey with you gals! :-)
Have a Blessed Day! XOXO
