When my oldest was born 11 years ago, we received a host of wonderful gifts.  He was the first!  We were young! We needed ALLTHETHINGS!!!!!! Then we had another one 18 months later, and he received some nice gifts, too. Then we had another one 2 years later and people are like…you had another baby? THEN we added this last one to the bunch almost 7 years after the last one and people are all…what?  Huh?  They’re not even

If you’re getting this email, chances are you signed up to follow our blog years ago, back when we were starting out and back when I actually wrote more than bi-annually. I love to write.  And whenever I go back and read this blog, I’m all “Man I’M FUNNY! I should do this more!” …but a few things have happened since we started this business, and writing this blog keeps getting pushed to the back burner. What’s happened, you

Baby Book: Back to Basics

extras

I’ve spent the last ten years agonizing over how I’m going to make my son’s baby book as fabulous as my first born’s. I only have two children. How hard can this be?   My daughter’s baby book has two parts. Really, it’s two books. 0-6 months in one and 6-12 in the other. I scrapbooked the hell out of her baby book. Total first time, stay-at-home, scrapbook ALLTHETHINGS mom. I loved it. I stressed out over every page

Launch Day Love…a guest post by AP of I Love You More than Carrots!

Congratulations, Peekawhoo! I’m so ridiculously excited for the launch of Kelley and Heather’s brand new site. I mean, I’m as excited as one can be for the journey and success that has befallen two of my favorite people on the Internet that I have yet to meet in real life. In fact, I’m totally popping a bottle of champagne for you as I type so I apologize in advance for any misspellings that may follow.  That said, Kelley and Heather have

Fourth of July *Monogrammed* Fun!

You may have noticed that we’re getting all patriotic-and nautical!-up in here at Peekawhoo lately… You really can’t go wrong with this classic color combination, as is evidenced by these adorable monogrammed anchor coolers, our  fun monogrammed anchor tote, and our super-pragmatic and simultaneously stylish navy chevron department store tote, pictured below. AND SERIOUSLY…does it get any cuter than these Flap Happy Sun Hats?  We love the red with white polka dots and a blue and white striped ruffle, and especially

It’s Monogrammed Jellycat Bunny Time, People.

Have you ever watched Flight of the Conchords?  Yes?  Then you’ll know…It’s Bunny Time.  If you haven’t watched, then you need to check in on Jemaine and Bret, the clever duo from New Zealand that star in this hilarious show.  You should only watch it, however, after you buy a few bunnies. If you need a reason to buy a few bunnies, please see below. One of #3’s chief complaints is that he has to sleep alone…”you get to

Lucy Darling Stickers and a Birthday.

It occurs to me as I am adding these adorable Lucy Darling Stickers to our website… …that today is my nephew’s 15th birthday. 15. As in this little chunky nugget is turning FIFTEEN today. How did it happen, you wonder?  I wonder, too, when this little lump of love went from that, to this. It’s one of those strange wonders of life and aging when you watch someone transform right in front of your very eyes, when the shift

New Year, New You! (Or at the very least…NEW FUN FONTS!!)

So back in October when I updated our Name Fonts, I mentioned that “next week I’ll be updating our Monogram Fonts!” Next week obviously turned into NEXT YEAR, so…here we are. 2014!! It’s safe to say that November and December went by in a blur of Angel Dear Lovies and Jellycat Bunnies and Zutano gowns, mimosas and holiday cookies and fruitcake.  We hope that the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014 has been all that you want it

Jack Black on Fonts.

Do ya’ll remember that scene in High Fidelity where Barry, played by Jack Black, basically shuts down a customer because he wholesale thinks the customer’s taste in music is unacceptable?   Barry’s Customer: Hi, Do you have the song “I Just Called to Say I Love You?” It’s for my daughter’s birthday. Barry: Yea we have it. Barry’s Customer: Great, great.  Can I have it? Barry: No, no, you can’t. Barry’s Customer: Why not? Barry: Well, it’s sentimental tacky

Angel Dear Lovies…a pair and a spare!

I remember once, when I was around 4 or 5 or so,  my family went to  Tweetsie Railroad, a Wild West Theme Park(!) in the North Carolina mountains.  I may have actually been older, but since I’m telling a story about how I wanted to bring my blanket along with me, we’ll stick with the notion that I was 4.  Or 5. So I had a seriously serious attachment to my blanket, a wonderfully soft and stinky(because I never

Another Band-Aid Comes Off: Running.

Yesterday, my sister-in-law sent me a text that read “Thinking about Intense Fit at 9 at Y…interested? I’m not feeling Intensely Fit, but there wasn’t a Marginally Fit class on schedule” How can you say no to that? She summed it up, really, the way I feel here at the end of the summer.  For a variety of reasons, I’ve been on running hiatus-life, kids, beach, beer, laziness?-but it’s time to reconnect with my Mizunos, time to make the

Ripping off the Band-aid: Wrapping up Summer, Packing Lunches, and Moving.

Heeeeeeeeellllllllooooooo readers! It’s only been, what, 3 months?? since I last wrote?  Here’s a quick photographic recap of what at least a portion of the Peekawhoo family has been up to since then… Mine have been back in school since August 8th, believe it or not, and we’re all getting back into the routine of waking up early and hustling out the door in order to get to school on time.  We’re doing ok, really, with the exception of

Angel Dear Lovies…Because Monogrammed Jellycat Bunnies are sooooo February 2013.

Lately, we’ve seen a surge in sales in our Angel Dear Lovies and Angel Dear Blankets.   After the Great Bunny Rush of 2013, we were wondering if ya’ll would remember about these tried and true lovies, and we’re happy to see that you have. Of course there’s no surprise these are popular-Angel Dear has been on our radar for years, as all of our children had a host of Angel Dear lovies when they were younger(and we still find

#TBT, on the Eights.

Recently I’ve been dipping into the closet in the guest bedroom, the one where more often than not I’ll find Lucy snoozing on the bed, pretending she can’t see me since she knows she’s not supposed to be on there and if she’s not looking at me, then I can’t see her, obviously. This closet houses old longalls and jon jons of the kids that I can’t get rid of, the shiny purple strapless pantsuit type situation I wore

HeArt and Soul

On Thursday after the Boston Marathon, the kids’ school hosted its annual art show, where all the students proudly display the work they’ve created under the tutelage of Jill, the school’s amazingly talented and energetic art teacher.  It’s always such a lovely event, with art displayed all over the campus in the classrooms, in the office, on the walkways.  Jill, an artist herself, is one of those remarkable teachers who is able to convey fact, technique, and fun, instilling

Simon Says.

Last week before we were to leave town for spring break, we noticed that two out of three B boys were looking a little suspect and rashy.  The Eldest looked like he’d been slapped in the face a few times, and after karate, my mom noticed #3 had a little bumpy rash forming just below his ear. Rather than head to the USC-Furman game at Fluor Field which would have been a lot more fun than hanging out with
