Thanks MOM!!

GUUUESSS who is back! Yep. But Im pretty sure Im not going to make any excuses or say I'll get better at writing, until I actually DO BECOME better and consistent at keeping yall up on this blog!

Lots of wonderful and exciting things are coming up for sugar snap pea! We had to take a slight snooze on our e-commerce website, but our hopes are not all lost. We are still working on that, and will let you know as soon as it happens! (perhaps even reward you for your patience)

But today's post is to say thank you to all the MOMS. Moms who love their kiddos and bring them to SSP to show them off. Moms who may be on a business trip but still cant resist not bringing something back for their little ones. Moms and Dads who may be on their baby vacation or babymoon, and spend hours at SSP just getting excited for their new arrivals.

To say THANK YOU to all of you, please stop by Sugar Snap Pea this week and get a special promotion. When you purchase 2 full priced items, you get your 3rd 50%. Pretty dandy!

Im pretty sure I can count on multiple hands, mine and yours, how many time I said i'll get better at blogging about SSP.

I have fallen off the wagon. But worry not, ill be getting back on this asap!

outfit of the day

Sorry this blog seems to be so unstable :) We are swamped building our website which we hope to bring to you by the end of this month!! We had a great success hosting Jonathan Miller and Sammy's books this past sunday. It was so much fun, that we decided to keep his books and sell them! If you'd like a signed copy, we have a few extras!

To continue with our fun products and small shipments that are starting to arrive here and there, we are continuing with our "outfit of the day" posts. Our outfit of the day fits in with this beautiful weather we are having. Perhaps start thinking about beautiful easter outfits? Great pieces by egg baby.

so humbled-nursery notations

As many of you know, December was a crazy month. Mostly because I had to leave the store and for me, its like leaving your baby with a trust them, but you call them every 15 minutes to make sure your baby is ok. ( I don't have children, but Im totally picturing myself doing that....oh boy)

Anyway, when I was traveling, the store was in very trusted hands of Meg and Heather (some of you love them more than you love me....and I'm ok with that...) So while I was away, we had a lovely visitor that I heard SO much about prior to her visit. I was HONORED that she stopped in and loved the store, but what I didnt expect is for her to blog about it on her amazing website:

Here is the funny part-I've been following her blog for some time now. In fact, all the fun nursery designs that I saw, and some other neat inspirations for the store, came from that blog!! So much to my amazement this morning, and to a little stalking, I found out she wrote an AMAZING article on her blog. Jaw-floor-grin-side to side.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU and I hope that next time we can actually meet face to face!

P.S. all my new mommies and mommies to be-still not sure how you want to decorate your nursery? Make this page your daily go to!!

we're cooking something good!!

January may be a month where people relax from their busy holiday schedules, but that's not the case here at Sugar Snap Pea! As many of you know, we have a lot of fun secrets under our sleeves, and well be announcing them very soon!

Currently we are working on our webstore!! So many people, locals or visitors, asked if we had an online store, that we knew waiting another 6 months wouldn't be smart.

Currently our goal is to have everything up by February 21st, but who knows, we may work overtime :)

Some of the fun things it will include:

~baby registry~

While we LOVE having moms come in and register here, and will continue to encourage in store consultations, we want your out of town relatives to be able to buy you gifts you actually WANT!

~baby registry recommendations~

we love helping parents make smart decisions for their new additions. You'll be able to read on our registry recommendations and make an educated decision on what you'll want to register, even if its not with us!

~top 10 gifts~

so many of you have birthday parties that you know you HAVE to go to, but have no idea what to get. Enter-SSP. We will make the best recommendations based on age, quality and price.

~gift baskets~

We are finally going to launch our concierge service we talked so much about! Pick a gift from $25, $50 or $100 and let us do the rest! (these will be preset or you can customize your own)

And remember, all of our gift wrap is complimentary!

Any other fun options that you'd like to see on our site? Were open to all suggestions!

P.S. GOOGLE: Sugar Snap Pea and see what you get! We just beat our biggest competition-the vegetables!
