Can it be my birthday week again?  Please?  I kind of wasnt ready for it to end.  Although, since I have such awesome friends, they decided that we will have a re-do birthday party since I had a migraine!  Woo hoo!  I was so sad I couldn't hula hoop or dance at all at my party, especially when my sweet sweet friend Jen surprised me with a light up mood hoop!!  I can't wait to try to get some awesome photos with it.  I was sooo shocked when she gave it to me.  

The day after my party, on my actual birthday, James and I went to The Bijou to watch Wes Anderson's new film Moonrise Kingdom.  So so good.  Go watch it.  I have never been disappointed by him.  And speaking of things to watch, James got me a Studio Ghibli movie collection!  Im so excited.  Its been a few years since I have seen Totoro, and I have yet to see the newest Arrietty.  I cant wait to watch all of the ones Ive seen and the new ones as well. 

I feel like Im being pulled in several different directions right now playing catch up in my business.  Still working on a huge order for ShopRuche.com, a few small wholesale orders, photographing new stock for the shop, and a custom order detailed patchwork jacket.  All of which are equally important.  So... I will just keep steadily going until it is done... And by that time, I will for sure have a new list.  That is just how it goes.  But I am soooo thankful that it is, the alternative would not be good. 

I have so many things I want to share... so Ill be back as often as I can over the next few days...
