KANSAS CITY!!

Royals

Something crazy and amazing has been happening around here.  The Royals are in the World Series.  In case you have been living in a bubble (or just not in KC since many people I talked to down in Branson last weekend had no clue) you may not know that the Kansas City Royals have been unstoppable as of late.  They are one of the two wild card teams to be playing in the World Series.

Our Little Bug cup has runneth over.  29 years of waiting have paid off in a huge way.  My parents were at the legendary Game 6 in 1985; my mom pregnant with my baby sister, Teresa.  They have talked about it ever since.  We have tickets to Game 6 in this series-if there is a Game 6, of course.  To quote my dad, “It is the game you HAVE to go to.”

It goes without saying that our Royals shirts have been flying off the sewing machine.  I honestly can’t make enough.  It feels like I am constantly adding and subtracting to the pile, selling out at every show, and cutting out KC letters in my sleep.  It isn’t a bad problem to have.  We are lucky fans and lucky business owners because of the Royals’ success.

We are so proud of our Royals and can’t wait to share in this World Series experience with our bugs.  Tommy is enamored with baseball and the Royals and Alex Gordon right now.  They are all he talks about.  He chose to wear his Royals shirt to his first day of school.

If you come to one of our shows, come early to guarantee you get the size of shirt you want.  However, if your size is gone, you can always place an order with us.

It’s here!  We couldn’t be more excited.  All of a sudden we are able to go outside and shed the jackets.  We had a beautiful Saturday in April down at Table Rock Lake near Branson, Missouri.  My sister, Teresa, set up her massage booth next to our Little Bug booth.  It was fun working together.  Plus I was able to steal 5 massage minutes from her.  (My sling is called the Maya sling.  It is amazing; I get asked about it all the time. I LOVE it.  Yes, Juliet is sleeping in there.  Can you see her super cute shape?)

Our kids are both outdoor lovers like their parents.  It’s amazing how your mood can lift when you get some fresh air and sunshine.  Tommy is hard to photograph at this age.  He doesn’t stop moving.  Do they offer camera classes called “How to Photograph Toddlers”?  They are both wearing the same egg design, just different fabric choices.

With the warmer weather comes new Little Bug designs and short sleeves!  Yippee!  We are always working on new seasonal apparel.  The first designs we rolled out have to do with our Royals.  Nothing says summer like baseball.  We can’t wait to take Tommy to his first game.

We also recently made some custom onesies for babies in our life.  This is what we love to do the most!
