{Feature-a-Friend Friday}

While trying to make up my mind which one of my fantastic new friends to feature first, I thought, I'd better start with my BEST friend.

Yes, I'm talking about my dreamy husband, Eric. Tomorrow will mark 6 years from the moment I said "I do;" the best decision I've ever made in my life. I married him because he respected me and he showed me a kind of genuine love I had never experienced. And he's a hottie.

Eric is not only my greatest supporter, he's completely involved in everything I do. Here he is in Orlando, FL taking pictures of the Ladies of Martha Stewart's Dreamers into Doers community.

Just to give you a glimpse of how spoiled I've been these past 6 years…

Back when I used to work, he would iron my clothes while I was in the shower. Then while I got dressed, he made breakfast for me and packed my lunch. By the time I was done with breakfast my car was loaded and running, just waiting for me to drive out.

When my first son was born, Eric changed every single diaper the entire 2 weeks he was home!!!! Today, he still handles bedtime by himself, giving both kids massages before reading, praying, singing, and tucking them to bed. He's always been the one to respond to those middle of the night calls from across the house too.

I've always said being a Daddy is in his DNA. He LOVES being a Daddy and a Husband. And we LOVE that he's ours.

Eric's love is the best gift I have ever received. He is my bestEST friend and without him I would not be able to do any of what I do. His calm temperament and humble attitude inspire me to want to be a better person.

Now off to plan our Anniversary date which was my turn to plan this year...YIKES!!!

Mardi Gras Collection

Beads, masks, and sparkles!... Ah yes, it's Mardi Gras season. And what could a girl love more than bright colors and fun jewelry?

The Mardi Gras TuTu Mini in size 12M to 2T is made with 50 yards of soft tulle fabric and wrapped in a coordinating dark purple satin ribbon. The length is perfectly comfortable for beginning little runners who enjoy a game of "catch me if you can."

The vibrant Mardi Gras Classic TuTu in size 3T to 6 is embellished with colorful rhinestones throughout. Nearly 75 yards of soft tulle in purple, yellow and kelly green, wrapped in a gold satin ribbon for comfort.

Both pieces are currently available at The Little Shop or can be shipped directly to you. Visit our Pricing and ordering page for details.

At TiTi's TuTu's we continue to pray for Louisiana and those still rebuilding their lives from Katrina and the oil spill. God bless!

{Feature-a-Friend Friday}

I'm finally starting this weekly post, which I've been looking forward to for a while. I'm blessed to know some incredibly talented people and I can't wait to introduce them to you.

Meet my friend Karla and her yummy new business, Sweet Culture. Karla is a devoted wife and mommy to a gorgeous 4 year old girl.

Over the more than 10 years I have known Karla, she has succeeded at whatever she takes on. Although an Interior Designer by profession, Karla likes to find *sweeter* ways to allow her creativity to be unleashed.
Do these pictures make your mouth water or what?

These are not your typical flavors. From a Puerto Rican with lots of Latina flavor her menu is filled with flavors like Brazo Gitano (Guava Jelly Roll) and Macarons with Chocolate Ganache, or how about Pie Pops!

Karla's work is original and simply divine. Call her if you're ready to make an impression at your next event.
