Customer Response

 When you get an email or message from a customer, how long does it usually take you to respond back?  Do you respond right away or do you take your time? If so, how much time does it take for you to respond?
Have you ever had any complaints on how long it's taken to respond?
If you go on vacation or something, do you set up an away message?
Recently I've messaged some shops and find it that it takes them a while to reply. I find it odd. To me, customer service is extremely important and a shop should respond right away, don't you think? Even if it's just to say they are behind or working on responding back to my questions. I just want to know they received my message and will answer my questions when they can...
What do you think?

Birthday Stuff!

We just celebrated little man's birthday and it was so much fun. He chose a train theme and I had a blast making the decorations. My brother's girlfriend made the rail road crossing sign and I got the cupcake liners and toppers from We Love a Party on etsy. I just love how everything came out. I love the colors I used too!  We got lots of compliments on it. Little man had a blast!!!

This was the candy/cupcake table.
 The yummy candy and cupcakes. I think the adults liked the candy more than the kids. lol

My little man's candle!

Monday Madness! We Love A Party!

This past weekend we celebrated little man's birthday. It was so much fun! He chose a train theme and I had to make all the decorations. I had a blast doing it.

In fact, all the kids saved their liners to take home. lol

My baby is growing up!

I can't believe this was us a few years ago...  This is when we became parents for the first time...  I remember the first time I held little man in my arms, the first time I heard him cry. I just love being a mommy! Little man is growing up so fast and becoming an amazing young man! He loves school, he loves his friends and family and learning.

He loves to help around the house too! He enjoys helping put dishes away and helping with laundry. He has such a sweet spirit and loving heart. I hope he will always be this way and that he never gets hurt because of it.

I am so thankful that I get to be this little boy's mom. I am truly blessed!

Happy Birthday Little Man!!!

Monday Madness! Baby Duds Boutique


I have lots of baby girls in my life - except my own. lol  My cousin is having the first girl in the family on my husband's side. So of course, I am having a blast shopping for her. My first item I got for this baby girl was personalized bloomers. I love the look of a baby girl in a dress with a personalized bloomer underneath. Don't you?  It is just too cute!  I found some adorable ones at Baby Duds Boutique. And you know what I loved about her shop?  That she also offers cute items for boys!!!  Check out her personalized boxers.

Baby Duds Boutique offers some great personalized items for kids. Such as shirts, onesies, bloomers and more...  Check out Baby Duds Boutique here.  You will love it as much as I do!

Monday Madness! Tin Tree Gifts

 Don't you just love finding special "treats" online? :)  You guys know how much I love etsy and finding new and creative items. By now you know how much I LOVE personalized gifts!  I found Tin Tree on etsy and LOOOOOOVE all the items on there. It is impossible to choose a favorite!  I got gorgeous glass, personalized coasters and they are stunning! They are for little man's teacher. I know she will just love them!

Tin Tree also has many other personalized items. I just saw their cookie jar and am drooling over it. lol  I think it will be a wonderful gift for grandpa and grandma. Tin Tree also has Iphone 5 cases. And they are personalized. How cool is that? To have your very own individual Iphone case. :)

Can you guys believe that little man is going to be 6? 

AHHHH! Time is going by way too fast. What a bitter sweet moment. I am so thankful for a healthy boy who is so sweet, loving, smart and amazing! But boy oh boy, he is growing so fast!!!

He asked for a party and so we shall give him one. A small one of course. But he is so excited!

We are doing a train theme which proves to be harder than I thought. There is nothing train related out there... Just Thomas the Train and that's not what I am doing.

AND I have to make my own banner which proves hard when I don't have the proper equipment. lol  I'll make do.  I need letter cut outs and hope to find it at Hobby Lobby...

Do you guys make your own birthday decorations?
