~~Im soooo bad at blogging~~

Im just so bad at blogging.  In the past week, I am trying to be more "intentional" at doing what I need to do.  So what that means to me, is following thru with the things I "need" to do, and just trying to stay away from the things that I dont "need" to do.  So first on my list of things to do was:

Spin Class..... ugh!!!! 

I have committed to myself... (once again) to try to loose a few pounds before summer comes.  Where I live, the weather gets to be, well down right HOT and not being that "cute" in a suit is just not gonna fly anymore.  So there you have it.  My first priority.  Second, is my business. I really want to get into Indie Class, and the course and stop putting it off. It cost a heck of a lot of money. I need to use it.  And then with that said, blogging... learning to blog better.  So, Im going to take this weekend and let my sore muscles heal, and take some time to jot down some blog topics.  And hopefully give you something to read!!

Hope to see you next week!!

Indie Biz 3.0

My wonderful FRIEND and I were chatting a week or two ago, and I brought her attention to Indy Biz 3.0 after having seen it advertised over and over on various blogs.  I knew that she would greatly benefit from it, as she was wanting to grow her business a step further.  She registered for it, and then convinced me I needed to be a part of it too!  So I took the step and registered.  So much useful information and so much to take it, but I know it will be worth it in the end.  So many friendly people have already sent me "tweets" or messages saying hello ~~ So excited and ready to learn!!

{Tell me something interesting about yourself}
I used to work "full time" with my husband doing the accounting for our business. We decided that having me home when the kids got home from school and during the summer months (because our business really picks up during the summer months) would be much more beneificial to our kids!

{What inspired you to start your shop?}
Since my kids are a bit older, and in school until 3pm, five days a week, I needed something to do between the grocery shopping and laundry to keep my "active" mind going. I have a group of friends who are so talented and sew lots of pretty things. I wanted to join in the club and so I started making these cute Bloomin Flowers!

{Where do you find inspiration?}
Inspiration comes from my 8 year old! She is crafty and talented and everything looks so darn cute in her hair! I always have her in mind as I am picking out fabric.

{What is your idea of a romantic date?}
I have to confess I am not much of a romantic myself.... BOO HOO... I know, but, romantic to me would be my husband actually planning a night out including the babysitting and totally surprising me! I dont think that has every happened before!

{What is your favorite thing about February?}
My favorite thing about February is that it means Spring is right around the corner! I love spring, and all of its blossoms on the trees. It is stunning in California.

{Product Review}
I am a HUGE fan of The Bloomin' Boutique. I won my first bloom on a giveaway and I've been hooked ever since. I was honored with the artist behind The Bloomin' Boutique sent me two more blooms for a product review. I was so thrilled I wore one of the blooms the day I got it in the mail!

A few of my favorite things about The Bloomin' Boutique:
1. The size is perfect for short hair and long hair. I recently got my hair cut short and I love them just as much (maybe more) with my short bob than I did with my longer hair.
2. I love how they lay on my head and don't stick out in odd places. Sometimes hair bows and headbands are taller than I'm comfortable with, but these are perfect.
3. The weight: they aren't too heavy or too light. They don't give me a headache because they are too heavy or bulky but they also don't blow around in the wind because they are too light.
4. Speaking of pain, you know how sometimes headbands can give you headaches and hair clips can stag your hair? These do neither!! The artist used a super nice clip and has cleverly covered the clip with ribbon so it isn't painful!
5. Last, but not least, my favorite thing about The Bloomin' Boutique is the variety and uniqueness of the designs. She has a fabulous mix of fabric that she uses, there is a bloom for every outfit and every occasion!

{What could you win?}
The fun, colorful Medium Bloom valued at $10.50!
