D-Listed Blog Party 2010 & Giveaway

17 May

”MMButton”

Hi and thanks for stopping by for my D-Listed Blog Party! I am very excited to meet other D-Listers out there!! Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Torie and I’ve been happily married to my handsome hubs for 2 years! We live in Orlando with our 2 crazy dogs and our baby girl Rylie! She was born in November of 2009, which makes her 6 months old (makes me a little emotional just thinking about how fast she is growing!) As you can see by her pictures, she is a chunky monkey. Poor girl inherited her momma’s genes 🙂

This is us at Rylie's Dedication. She was 4 months.

Here she is a couple of days ago at 6 months.

I initially started blogging to keep our out-of-town family and friends up to date on our lives. It turned into a pregnancy blog, and now a blog about my days with my baby girl.

I was recently laid off from work and now am a stay at home mom. I really do enjoy every minute of it, but we needed some extra money to feed our 2 bulldogs, a husband who lives to eat, and a baby who recently starting eating “real” food. I thought about getting a “real” job, but couldn’t fathom leaving my baby with strangers during the day.After a little brainstorming and research, I decided to open up my own etsy shop.

In the past I made a few bows for Rylie and thought why not share my craftiness with other mom’s and their little girls! And so On Top Baby Bows was created!! (How cool is it that my dad came up with the name?!) If you have a little girl I would love to make her a bow! I also do custom orders, so send me a pic of what you would like and I’ll make it happen!

As you read through my blog you can see that I am not the best when it comes to grammar. There were so many times in high school where my mom had to re-write my papers because they were so bad! I am definitely working on it, but I think it gives me character 🙂 I mostly write about Rylie, but occasionally I created a post that I can be proud of. Most recently was my Mother’s Day post.

Last but not least I want to thank you for stopping by! And for doing so I’d like to do a D-List Blog Party Giveaway! The prize is a $10 credit to my store, On Top Baby Bows. You can pick anything you like, up to $10!

    Hi there! Stopping in from the Blog Party!

    You have some really cute stuff in your shop! I like small and simple, so I really like your ribbon clips with bow…especially the group in white, yellow and purple.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!! Rylie is adorable! I love her cheekies!

    I love your bows, especially the pink crocheted flower! I don’t think my hubs would appreciate me putting them on his son though. Would you be insulted if I used them on my puppy instead?
