Hello friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend and I hope all of the Dad's had a very special day! We went to the Motor Muster at The Henry Ford and had a lot of fun, it was car heaven for both of my boys! I am outnumbered when it comes to many things so I need to learn to love some boy stuff.
I always love introducing you to my fab readers and have the great pleasure of introducing you to Kara of Eli's Lids this week! Kara and I met on Twitter and became fast friends. I love Kara's lids and T- shirts. Will has a lid from Eli's Lids and two of their T-shirts. What I love about them is how trendy they are and Will says the T-shirts are his "most comfy", trust me they are super soft. Please grab your beverage of choice and get to know my friend Kara.

How did you start blogging?
I solely started blogging because it was free advertising for Eli’s Lids. Then a funny thing happened… I fell in love with the community. I love love love blogging!
What is your parenting philosophy?
My parenting philosophy is to make Eli and Cora Jane’s childhood magical. I hope they look back on my years with them and get a warm fuzzy inside… not material to discuss with their therapist!!
You will never find me without.....
A water bottle. I’m constantly concerned that I might get dehydrated. Dehydration is my scapegoat. “Sorry I’m so cranky, I must be dehydrated…” “I was way too tired to fold t
he laundry, I must be dehydrated…” You get the idea. I’m a dork!
I am the founder, owner and sole worker for Eli’s Lids (aka hats). I started sewing Eli’s Lids after our firstborn, Eli, was born. I created the pattern myself with style and practicality in mind. Eli’s Lids are stylish, just look at them:
And practical! The smaller size fits size newborn to 1-year-old and
the larger size fits a 1-year-old to a 5-year old. It even fits my head!
Eli’s Lids has a huge heart for kids! We donate 10% of our profits to ACT Today! An awesome nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase access to effective autism treatments.
Music: My favorite band is Jars of Clay. David Crowder Band is a close second.
Food: I like everything… That’s the problem. I could live on candy.
Tv/ Movies: The Office is the only show we watch… REALLY, we don’t have TV so we watch in on the internet! My all time favorite move is Goonies.
If you had to wear a T-shirt with your favorite saying on it
what would it be?
Live in the Moment!
Favorite stores to shop at:
Anthropologie & The Dollar Tree
If you could trade with a blogger for the day who would it be?
I’ve never thought about that! I would love to have the modern vintage creativity of my favorite blogger Stephanie Neilson from the Nie Nie Dialogues Nie Nie Dialogues
Other Good Stuff from Kara:
I love being a wife and mommy! I hope you visit my blog and are inspired to do a craft with your kiddos or make out with your hubby, or at least have a laugh at my expense!
