about a year ago i went to this bbq filled with my hus’ friends from high school. this babe and i locked eyes from across the room and she said to me, “i feel like we need to be friends because i love your shoes.” or something like that, right Ali? fast forward to this year. we have become friends. really good friends. i mean she even drops off bundles of sage on my front porch and tells me when the moon is right for cleansing my house.
the more i know her, the more i love her. she is super modest and RARELY talks about her career before she became a mommy and the co-creator of the completely irreverent and uber authentic blog Lil Mamas, but she is kind of a big deal. no i am not kidding. she was a professional singer, actress and danced all over Broadway and I have to say it because it is like my favorite thing, she was Curly Sue in the movie. did you love that movie like i did as a kid?
Now we know those hardworking, creative types can’t be stopped. Since having her two adorable, children, Mason and Aria, Alisan has recently launched her own etsy shop, Aria’s Arrows filled with headbands for baby.
I have loved founding another kindred etsy shopping soul so we thought it would be fun to share the etsy shops we are crushing on right now…
and ruby is so smitten with baby aria she cries at least once a week about not having a baby sister AND every where we go she is grabbing clothes and toys for the girl and saying “mom, aria needs this.” can you blame little miss ruby? look at those cheeks.
