Life of a mom

Hey Everyone,

I don't know about all of you, but this stomach bug/flu that is going around has hit our house hard!  It started with my sweet little Pippa on Monday, and then Fin and I got hit with it Thursday night, and now my poor husband is in bed with it!  I really hope it doesn't hit him hard because I got him tickets to see his beloved Hoosiers play tomorrow, and now he is sick!  YIKES.....

As a mother it is so hard to see your babies sick and there is nothing you can do about it!  With that said I am pretty sure my 4 year old handled it better than me!!  Ha ha...I am the biggest baby of all when I am sick, and I was crying while Finley would just throw up and be on her way happy as a clam!  How do little kids bounce back so fast??  They never cease to amaze me.  My poor husband is our rock and was taking care of us both, then while we slept in the next morning he had to get up with our 18 month old!  So I guess I should be baby-ing him right now instead of writing on the blog???......hmmmm

On a more exciting note, I will be launching our curvy line for the store this next week, and I just ordered some adorable items for the spring/summer line!  Can you say polka dot shorts, floral skinnies, lace dresses, collared tanks....oh my I am getting so excited just thinking about it!  Make sure you check back to see them when they are in!

As usual I have to leave you with a couple pictures of my little angels and my inspiration for the store!! They are the reason I live and show them how you can live your dream if you work at it!!!

What a year so far....

Hey Everyone,

I am so sorry I have not updated our blog in a while!  Two days after Christmas my grandmother (who is my world) fell and broke her hip and had to have emergency surgery and get a rod put in her leg.  She just turned 93 a week ago, so you can see how serious and scary that could be.  I have been so busy with my family, and girls, and the store that I haven't had a chance to catch up on here!

I hope everyone is having a great new year so far!  I really believe that great things are going to happen with PipLey this year.  In a week we hope to be launching a curvy line for my sexy curvy ladies out there, and I am hoping by the end of the year to start carrying some men's vintage clothing.  Surprisingly I have had a lot of request for men's clothing, not to mention my husband needs a serious wardrobe upgrade!!  Ha ha....

I haven't had a chance to take to many new pictures so I am digging in my photos to find some of my favorite pieces from our store and how I styled them!  Plus, as always some adorable pictures of the two little beauties that are my whole world!
My two beautiful little angels!  Finley and Pippa

I hope everyone has a great week, and be sure to check out our store for some great pieces, and upcoming lines!!

What a great couple weeks...

Hello everyone,

I am so sorry I have been absent for a couple weeks, but I have been so busy enjoying my family, holidays, and snow!!  I love how busy and exciting the end of the year can be, and I had no idea how fast it could really go!  I remember as a kid how long it took for Christmas to get here, and now it seems like it all happens so quick that if you don't take a ton of pictures you would not even believe it happened!

My sweet little girls ready for Santa!

We enjoyed such a wonderful Christmas with family, and the girls got what they wanted from Santa!!  There is nothing more exciting as a mother to see the joy and excitement on your babies faces while they open gifts!!  My husband did really good this year and got me a new ring that is from the 1920's with old mine cut diamonds from 1890!!  He hid it in a large jewelry box so when I was looking through it I found it!!  I know...he is pretty amazing.  I started Greg's Christmas off with a clue and sent him on a scavenger hunt all the way to my moms and through out the day...he ended up finding his gift under my moms tree which was IU basketball tickets.

The day after Christmas we had a huge snow storm and ended up getting about 8 inches of snow and the kids were so excited!!  Finley had been so excited to have a snowball fight and could barely wait it get out in it.

The most important women in my life

Last week my grandmother who will be 93 in 15 days, fell and broke her hip.  We have been through a major roller coaster the last few days, but I have learned just how amazing and strong she is.  I am so proud to be her granddaughter and am so blessed to have her in my life.  I pray that I will be half the woman she was and still tries to be today.  She is recovering from surgery in a rehab facility and we pray that she will get a little stronger with each day!!

Whew...that was the last couple weeks in a nut shell, and I will try not to get that far behind again!!
We also got some adorable new pieces in the store, so make sure you check those out!!
