I'm so thankful to have made it through the first year because this was merely a dream before Christmas of '09 when my brother bought me the domain name and then it was onwards and upwards. Now I'm loving the online business and most of all the new people and customers I have met and befriended over the last year.

There is still dreaming though- new dreams! A location was never in the stars before but we are quickly out growing our space for storage of all our fantastic products and I really love chatting with customers in person. I'm slowly warming up to the idea of opening up shop, brick and mortar style. I've been having fun perusing real estate listings for now and I have a few dream locations but I'm not sure the rent price tag will cooperate. Abby is getting older way too fast and she'll be begging to go to preschool before I know it I'm sure (seriously where is the pause button?).When the right spot comes up though, I think I'll be ready to jump in just like the online jump!
Don't forget to enjoy the sales and leave a comment after you review your fave product so you have a chance at winning!


  1. My go-to diaper has got to be the one-size FuzziBunz! My daughter is 13 months and around 20 lbs... these fit her like a glove! The lining is super-soft fleece and the colors are awesome. They come with one microfiber insert, but for nights I double it with a hemp insert and it's perfect - she can sleep comfortably for a good 11-12 hrs with this diaper!

  2. I prefer one sized diapers, but I just love our perfect size FBs, I'm going to have to try the OS one of these days !

  3. I just posted a review on the Woombie! It my ultimate baby item! Everyone needs a Woombie for their baby!

  4. I posted a review for the Fuzzibunz OS
