Susan from dandelionsanddaisies.com did my photography work. She is amazing and a great friend as well.
One of my daily reads is the Celebrity baby blog. I love getting the dish on who's pregnant, had a baby, what hot products they are using, etc. It's fun peek into thier lives as parents and "regular" human beings. ;) They just featured BoutiqueCAFE in their newsletter today which is REALLY exciting news! You can hear more about this on today's podcast as well! Plus the interview with Alexa Ray Joel is coming up THIS WEEK!!!

I have recently come to love and search for fun purses, totes and bags! and I love a bargain! I certainly don't need a bunch but with spring around the corner I am itching to punch up my accessories and add some color to my world! A friend, (thank you Morgan) brought my attention to some FABULOUS bags on Target.com with an even better price! This one I HAD to snatch up! The green is one of my favorite colors this past year and it's paired up with some of Amy Butler's fabric from her Belle line.
THEN, while searching around I found a few more fabrics I recognized as well! How about alittle Denyse Schmidt with this Gray number?
and then 1 more appearance in Blue from Amy Butler's Sun Glow Collection. Pretty fun huh?

Sometimes Impromtu trips are the best. Just throw your bag in the car and go! That's what we did this weekend. We decided that we needed some time away from the city and a nice trip back "home" for my hubby would do the trick! So we headed to his small farming hometown. The kids of course had a blast with grandma and grandpa all weekend. It was my husband's birthday as well so after lunch on Sunday his mother whipped up an angel food cake with her yummy homemade orange frosting. Yummmmm....nothing like homemade!
We woke up to a surprising Snow storm on Sunday as well. By the time it had stopped, about noon day, there was 6 inches in the ground. We had not brought any snow clothes with us so I tied grocery sacks around my childrens feet and we headed out for some fun!
I couldn't help but take a few.......well ALOT of pictures of the snow covered trees, etc all over the yard and nearby pasture. Here's a few of my favorites. I was also intrigued by all the birds that had flocked to their small bird feeder that day. I could have sat there forever just watching and snapping pictures of them.
*sigh* It was a nice getaway - slowed our family pace down and reconnected the family roots. ;) I turned the camera on myself and my hubby and snapped this picture of us in the BRIGHT sunlight with our eyes burning! LOL NOW.....back to work and the go go go everyday life!

So I usually go for Blended highlights in the Spring and Summer to brighten and freshen up my mood.........well I needed to get my hair trimmed up again and was just feel dreary so I asked my hairdresser for highlights. She said, "would you like them blended or chunky?" I have always wanted to get some chunky highlights but feared I would turn out looking to CRAZY or like I was trying to be a ROCK STAR or celebrity or something like that! LOL!!! She assured me I wouldn't and I said, "Let's go for it!" Why not!
I am so happy with the way it turn out and my hairdresser really went to town on the layers, etc. I am still playing around with it all the new fun ways I can style it. She also gave me some sweeping bangs which I love too! My daughter and son keep repeating to me how much they love my new hair! makes a Mom feel good.
So here's some goofy pictures of me with my new hair! Nothing like turning the camera around on yourself to snap to picture and then posting it for everyone to see! LOL!!!

I've been tagged by Patty of ModKid BoutiqueI have to post a favorite - "The rule is it has to be something you have created, and it must be your favorite." That is SUPER EASY for me! My 2 kids are easily my FAVORITE thing I have created.
Ok, Ok, I am pretty sure she meant my favorite "boutique" thing but as I mother I just couldn't resist! ;) It's alot harder to pick my favorite Boutique item that I have created. BUT since I HAVE to pick one I would say it was my girls Western outfit.
This is the first outfit I presented debuting what would become my signature style. Getting here was such a process and this design just came together beautifully and was so well recieved that I was thrilled. People still request this design and remember this outfit and the matching boy set as well. I guess it brings back alot of great memories and holds some sentiment to me.
