Ask Design Mom Week

November 2, 2009



Friends! My inbox is overflowing with brilliant questions. Time for another installment of Ask-Design-Mom-Week.

How does it work? I’ll post several questions each day of this week in separate posts. I’ll answer some and leave others for your clever responses. And hopefully, we’ll all learn a little something new. Lovely.

Yay! Ask-Design-Mom-Week is always so much fun.

Can do, will do, done. I’m sure it won’t be hard at all to pick out $300 worth of adorable things for my five adorable kids.

I’ve heard Colorado is a wonderful place for families. Good luck!

Oh gosh, twittering now! I’m @babysteph …

And I’m searching for teeny tiny no-slip hair bows for Ivy. She’s 6 months and has just a few tiny hairs I’d like to dress up! : )

It is on my FB page. Everytime I go to Scottsdale AZ I hit Keirland Commons to visit PEEK, love their stuff.

My brother-in-law lived in Colorado for 6 years… he was dragged back to Kentucky by his bride-to-be (family’s here). He loved every minute of Colorado and would go back in a heartbeat. I visited once (Fort Collins)… such a great place. Loads to do outdoors and so fun. You will make friends, no doubt, and it will become your home.

Tweeted! @mama4jc. :) And have fun moving! I’ve moved more than 5 times since I got married 6 years ago and have found new cool people and things to love each time! It’s definitely not easy to leave ppl and things behind – I always remind myself that at least I’ll have a friend in the area if I go back to visit any one of my former residences:)

Best of luck with the move. I grew up for a time in Colorado (from age 8 to 13) and think it’s a great place for kids. Lots of opportunities for activity. And I learned how to ski pretty well. Looking forward to hearing about your adventures.
