Happy Saturday everyone!! Hope your relaxing, and maybe you even got to sleep in a little? {with kids that’s relatively impossible, I know}

We had a rough week here, sickness took over our house, but this morning things are looking a little healthy. 🙂

I thought I would let everyone know, after many comments and requests, I finally updated my Etsy store. I took out all the pieces that I didn’t personally love, and Harlow didn’t really wear. It’s now full of only the headband’s my girl wears all the time. Basically a store full of Harlow’s favorite’s.

Most styles are 100% customizable, either by size {adult to baby sizing} or by color {or both!}. These are just a few of the shots of our Harley wearing some of the bands. Check out my store here, or there is a link in my nav bar also.

Also I just wanted to share some of my most fav photos from the past week, I love my little family.

And last but not least. The Winner of the b. children’s wear “hooked on love” tee GIVEAWAY:

I used Random Line Picker this time, because there were so many entries within one comment, Random.org just doesn’t work so well for this. Ok, ok who care right? The winner is:

@skipthelaundry shot me an email: thebabyblackbird(at)gmail(dot)com with your mailing address and size preference, and I will have your prize sent to you!

Thanks to everyone for entering, don’t forget to check out b. children’s wear and their super awesome kids clothes.

This is the 3rd time I’ve used a picture of Kate Bosworth for Mini Celebrity, as you can see, I totally have a girl crush on her.

This is THE perfect outfit to dress your little girl just like a little Kate Bosworth.

Classic, sporty, timeless and super cute! Ryder & James does laid back, surfer cool, in the most stylish possible way. Their Spring/Summer 2011 line is the perfect line to stock up on for warm spring days and hot summer outings.

We love Ryder & James it’s like Mom and Dad’s casual summer wardrobe, only shrunken. Which I totally love!
