Spark up the Sparkle Curtains

Helpful hints so you don't have a mylar curtain meltdown: 
1. When unrolling the curtains remember they are fragile and rip so quickly! Handle carefully!
2. Give yourself more time than you think necessary for hanging, I thought 15 minutes - easy, nbd. was an hour to get six of these bad boys up. 
3. Definitely have stronger tape like duct to tape over the top for reinforcement. They come with a built in little strip but that is for the party that has invited guests who don't like to grab fringey, streaming, shiny things.
4. Take down after your party even if you start to convince yourself that it's an art installation and why not make them permanent and who cares that they blind the neighbors when the sun hits them...because the streamers start to rip off and then they get tangled in your plants and into your gutters, and it is no bueno!

Floral Slumbers

Little Bean has the perfect floral slumber mat for your little toddler! It's perfect for mother's day out, preschool, or camp. And it can be slung over the shoulder and taken for a night away at the grandparents house. Either way you will be at ease knowing that your  little one is resting on the softest organic cotton. And not to mention how chic they will look whilst snoozing!

The Green Light

The baby has given the green light - she loves the nap mats. We have been playing "nap" on the kitchen floor for days. Which is ironic because she gave up her afternoon nap a year and a half ago. 
And I keep saying let's nap for real!

Nap mat, nap mat, zzzzzz!

Our project that we have been working on for months and months is finally ready for it's debut! We can't believe how happy we are with our very own Little Bean Nap Mats!!! Seriously, we are so excited about it! 
Two years ago our little bean was heading off to 'Parent's Day Out' and we needed a nap mat - so we, really me, scoured the world wide web for the most chic nap mat we could find - and we couldn't. There were some cute ones out there - but nothing that we loved, nothing that looked like us, nothing that looked like the style of decor we love. 
The nap mats that we have designed and created are made in the USA; in fact in good ol' Dallas and are organic! O-R-G-A-N-I-C the magic word that makes us feel so much better about the purchase that we are making for our children! But really - the cotton inside of the mat and pillow is 100% organic cotton. Which makes the nap mat hypo-allergenic - which is nice. And it does make you feel good that when your little toddler is off sleeping at school that it's on high quality cotton fabric with organic cotton batting.  And they look French, which we love. Bon Nuit little babes!

Mini Golf

My favorite thing to do growing up at the Jersey Shore was to play mini golf or put-put with my sisters and our friends. It was always so competitive, or maybe that was just me...
I love that yesterday my two sisters and I took my daughter mini golfing and she played, it was great, I mean she totally played like it was field hockey but, she just turned three - so it's a great start.
