iPhone 5C & 5S : Monogrammed Cases

We're techie geeks around here and can't wait to get our hands on the new iPhone! Of course we'll be sporting a new monogrammed case as well...now time to decide on colors!
Order online: http://bit.ly/13HNiIS and be sure to pick 5C or 5S for the specific phone you purchase - the cases are made to fit specific phones. 5C will be a barely there case and 5S will include a protective tough layer. We will continue to carry the regular 5 covers for a bit, but not much longer, as Apple has discontinued production of that phone. iPhone 4S cases will continue in production, as Apple announced that will be the model for their "free" phone with cell service contract. Email us with any questions you may have about your new case, we're happy to help with whatever we can!


It's a TEAL month - let's celebrate!

Those near & dear know I lost my mother to ovarian cancer 9 years ago. Since then, I've been an advocate for my personal health with my family history. I have gone to appointments every 6 months, as suggested. After an "abnormal" report and meetings with my doctor, it was decided that I would have surgery.

Three weeks later & lots of TLC from friends and family, I can say I'm feeling good! During this TEAL month of Ovarian Cancer Awareness, make sure you know the signs of this silent killer. Tell everyone you know about it and be your own health advocate - we can make a difference!

And now I must confess, the meal delivery and amazing treats sent my way the last month have kept my spirits up and my work load down. {The dinners delivered put my cooking to shame - I've got some work to do.} I couldn't have made such a fast comeback with out it all! Here's a recap of a few treats...

 Edible Arrangements - healthy & pretty:)

 Cookies by Design - "Bounce back soon", a hit with all my sports fans!

 Loved the lotto scratch offs - delivered by a friend who knows the bordom of surgery recovery!

 A fun combo to keep me entertained, plus a good luck clover for a fast recovery.

 Cookies homemade & shipped from Maine - seriously amazing & kept these two happy.

 Such a thoughtful gift from Hoopla - arrived the day I found out I had a clean bill of health!

 To grab the boys a meal on the go...and fill mommy with her favorite, Diet Coke!

 The most amazing orange muffins from The Bloomsbury Bistro - just like my mom used to make.

And the last flowers standing, gorgeous hydrangeas grown & delivered by neighbors.


Sharing the Southwest LUV!

Anyone who knows me, knows I love Southwest Airlines! Friends joke with me that they'll be adding my photo to a tail wing soon. With Southwest, I've been able to afford La Plates business travel for trunk shows & cross country events. They have also provided the transportation for amazing memories & adventures for our family. 

Recently, Southwest called us about a thank you note we wrote - they had saved our family vacation! If you want to see his story, we're at 6:06 of this video.

Here's a little behind the scenes...starting with his favorite hotel activities - ice machine + vending machines + jumping on the bed!

Not quite ready to give up the Southwest life, he requested an airplane cheese sandwich & SWA pretzels for lunch.
