So this weekend I was in Spring Valley, WI helping my dear friend Ali with her store opening of Bizzing Bea! I was pretty excited: No toddler, Country living and cheese curds! I even wore my cowboy boots to fit in. Though I learned no one wears cowboy boots in small towns and my act of trying to fit in was received with laughs by the locals. Here are some pictures of Ali’s store:
Bizzing Bea is more than just cloth diapers and pacifiers, there are also treats for moms of the babies. Including: Lunette cups, Essential oils ( LuSa Organics), Watkins cleaning supplies ( which are safe to use around kids), and Noodle and boo. All awesome for adults and kiddos OK will except the Lunette cups. The store has a beautiful open layout. I highly suggest you visit this week if in Spring Valley (Store at the moment is a trial run and will close Thursday until things are sorted out).
Though eventually we were taken over by the babies of the store, here is their picture story:
Then trouble came in from the west:
Where he stopped at the local bar for shots of breastmilk before he started trouble in town:
Then he stopped at Bizzing Bea and attempted to destroy the store with diaper pins :
This landed him behind bars:
Well after begging and pleading he and the store owner made up:
Then some how the adults put Ella in baby jail and we took back the store though no pictures of that battle.
Now time for a story. I have learned even if I cross state lines crazy ish still happens to me. This time I discovered I was allergic to bees. Yes bees which Ironically is the mascot of Bizzing Bea. I even had received a warning before all of this craziness happened. During a babywearing demo I was teaching at the store, a woman had warned the kids to not leave your pop outside, that the bees would go after it. I apparently decide to be idiot of the day. Because with in 2 hours I was sitting on our parade float, with a pop that had been opened for about an hour. Just before I drank from that pop Ali’s husband had just chased a bee away. Well I drank from my pop, a second later I felt a sharp pain and something fighting to get out. I spit and cried and there was the bee. Now most people would have some swelling after being stung in the mouth. Well I had some swelling and more.
Here is me before the sting:
Here is me after:
Isn’t that super sexy?
Oh and by the time I arrived to the E.R I had a natural duck face:
My sweet husband laughed.
Though after a steroid shot and a ton of Benadryl later I looked a bit better and slept the rest of the day away.
