A Bright New Star: Jessie James and a GIVEAWAY!!

Wow...where do I start about this girl?? I met Jessie when she was 11 years old. Yikes...that was 10 yrs ago! lol I was working in a drop in daycare center and her mom dropped her and her 2 siblings off for the day. The kids were nice and I think they liked me. When mom picked them up she asked if I babysat and I said of course. Long story short, I ended up watching them a couple times a week for about 6 months. Mom worked in television and she traveled so she would sometimes be gone overnight. I simply came to love these kids...they weren't too sure about babysitters at first but they quickly came to like me. We always had tons of fun! Jessie was a singer even that girl could belt it out like I'd never heard before. She used to yodel, sing Christina Aguilera, sing Britney better than Britney sings and lots of country!

Sydney(9), Jessica(12) and John(6) (this was the last time I saw them)

She never really liked school and the girls were mean to her. (They were just jealous!) I always knew this girl was going places! After about 6 months, mom had met a great guy and they were getting married and moving to Georgia. I was SO sad to see them go...we kept in touch a little over the years but I found her about 3 years ago or so on myspace and was SO excited! She was still singing and doing her thing!

She entered a Grammy contest a couple years back and I just knew she was about to BUST out into our world of music! Not only does this girl have MAD talent.. SINGING, writing her own music and PLAYING guitar, but SHE IS GORGEOUS!!! I am SO happy for her and there was NEVER a doubt in my mind this girl would be a BIG STAR, be blowing up ALL over the place!! Everywhere I look, there she is on TV, I hear her songs on the radio all the time, on movies, on TV shows. OH and just yesterday she was PERFORMING on the ELLEN show! :o) I URGE you to GO out, buy her album, buy 5 copies and listen to the ENTIRE thing! The entire CD is rocking and I guarantee you will LOVE her music! She's a little country, a little pop and a little rock and roll!! CHECK OUT HER WEBSITE!!!

OK...because I love this girl and know how talented she is and I want all of you to check out her music....glam R baby will be giving away the NEW Jessie James CD...Not just ONE copy...BUT TWO!! I haven't done a contest in forever so I figured this would be PERFECT!! YEAH...everyone LOVES giveaways and FREE stuff and you WON'T be disappointed by her MUSIC!!

Praying for Kate.........

This is Kate McRae. She is 5 years old and an absolutely GORGEOUS little girl and full of some much life. Just 15 short days AGO she was a normal, happy , thriving child until they found out she had a brain tumor. She was immediately taken into surgery to remove what they could but she has a LONG road ahead of her. Please pray for Kate, her mom and dad (Holly and Aaron) and the rest of their family.

I stumbled across their story from Kelly's Korner and I went the Kate's caringbridge website immediately and read Holly and Aaron's journal from the beginning and just prayed and cried out to the Lord for this family. I do not know them but I cannot imagine then pain, hurt, hopelessness, helplessness and shock they are feeling. They are a Christian family and are asking people to cry out to God in prayers for this sweet little angel. They have a lot of faith in God, believe in the might power of prayer and the all soldiers that are faithfully praying. This story has touched my heart in a very profound way and I am continually praying for Sweet Kate.

(Kate and her daddy the day before her surgery)

Please look at her website, know her story, pray for their family and keep this little girl in your hearts as she battles the fight for her life. Please feel free to send them emails, cards, notes, ANY THING to help lift their spirits. I will post an address to the hospital at the end of the post and you can also email them through the website

Holly's (Kate's mom) email address in on the Caring Bridge website, please send her a note just to lift her up or let her know you are thinking about Kate and their family and you know her story. The more people praying the better.

This picture is from July 10th, the FIRST TIME she smiled after her surgery on June 30th.

Here is also a Youtube video from the day before her surgery and her parents telling you a little about what is going on.

Here's the address to the hospital if you heart leads you to mail a card, art work made by your kids, flowers, anything!! They will appreciate to know people are praying for them and thinking of them constantly! I CANNOT even begin to imagine what they are going through right now.

Phoenix Children's Hospital

1919 East Thomas Road

Phoenix, AZ 85016United States


In him,





1. I was adopted when I was parents are one of the greatest gifts God has given me. I do not know my "biological parents" and I'm not sure if I ever will. My parents are my parents as far as I'm concerned. Adoption is SUCH a blessing!

2. I NEVER in my life thought I would make and design children's clothing and accessories much less have my own business. It is a true gift from God and I am so thankful! I love what I do and I don't think I could ever go back to a normal job! :o)

3. I know how to play the piano and pretty well. I started taking lessons when I was 5 years old and continued on for about 8 years or so. I still love to play and will own a grand piano one day!

Granny - Frances Morgan Alexander

I love you Granny......

Hug your loved ones, tell them you love them, call your grandparents, your parents, anyone you love. One day they may not be here anymore.

Always in our hearts Granny.


Wednesday, July 08, 2009

AT A LOSS FOR WORDS...... will be greatly missed. Not much to say tonight as it still kind of a shock. She is up in heaven with Jesus. She had a long full life with my Granddaddy and her 3 daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Granddaddy and her were married for 67 years. A true testament to a long loving marriage. Granny, we love you and we will see you again.

Don't Stop Believing.......

glee(gle) n.

1. great merriment {syn:hilarity};

2. malicious satisfaction {syn: gloat}

Did anyone watch the PILOT episode of the new show Glee?? OH MY GOSH...I am in LOVE with this new show and SO excited for it to start in the fall. It is quirky, funny, and a feel good show for the fall! And one of my favorite things....SINGING and DANCING! If you LOVE SHOW are going to LOVE this show!! It is a MUST watch for the fall!! TURN UP YOUR SPEAKERS and LISTEN TO A SONG FROM THE SHOW!!

Most of you don't know this but when I was little I ALMOST ALWAYS had the lead role in the church musicals...yes I was the one to beat always. I did share the spotlight sometimes but not very often. :o) I was always involved with choir and music in some way or another. I took piano lessons from like 5-13....OH HOW I HATED THE LESSONS!! BUT MOM...if you are reading were RIGHT!! I am SO thankful and I LOVE to play the piano! Thanks for always pushing me and telling me just 10 MORE MINUTES! Man...I hated the EGG TIMER!! lol

Anyways....I am just SO pumped about this show....Brian and I are watching together and this is something he didn't grow up appreciating. He doesn't dance or ever sing, but music is one of the things I LOVE the most! I just love it! I always secretly wanted to be on Broadway. Even last fall we went to see a play/musical and I thought to myself how much I wanted to get back into it! But...alas it didn't happen. I am STAGE fright now! My best friend Lea made me sing karaoke TWICE in LA and I was SO nervous both times....I did it but I was petrified! I've been told I can sing but I don't know about that anymore! lol

Just wanted to see if anyone else watched Glee and what were your thoughts on it?? I can't for it to come on every week!!! Have a great holiday weekend!! Yeah FOR A 3 DAY WEEKEND!!
BTW: I am still getting TONS of orders for Bentley Bows...SO EXCITING!! Keep passing us can purchase them HERE. Thanks again and PLEASE be patient with me as I am getting the orders out!!
Thanks so much!!

I am SO excited to be doing this for a dear blogger friend, Crystal with You and Me Plus Three. Her sweet baby girl, Bentley is having Open Heart Surgery on May 20th. I have been following Crystal's blog for quite some time now and I wanted to do something for them. I first met Crystal about 2 years ago. She was doing website/myspace design and I had her make my myspace. We lost touch for a while but have reconnected and I'm SO grateful. She is SO sweet and has such a beautiful family.

I wanted to do something nice for their family and for Miss Bentley. She was born with this heart condition and this MAY be on of several open heart surgeries but hopefully by the grace of God she will only have to go through this once. Their insurance apparently doesn't cover all of the surgery nor does it cover her VERY expensive formula or some Dr. visits/appointments. Apparently the FORMULA alone is CRAZY expensive and her Pediatrician has fought for the insurance to cover but they refuse.

SO...I have created 3 BENTLEY bows! HALF of ALL the proceeds for all 3 Bentley Bows will go back to Miss Bentley and her family to cover the costs of all their medical expenses. I know its NOT a lot but I felt like glam R baby needed to do their part in helping!! To PURCHASE the BOWS...please contact me at, or (give me until Monday evening to get them on the website!)

Today..we are REVEALING the 3 BENTLEY Bows...Crystal worked very closely with me to pick out colors and patterns and we also wanted them to match their FAMILY blog!! I think we have accomplished that and I'm so excited to announce them! PLEASE buy one FOR you, your friends, your family and TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS about it!! Please feel free to REPOST on your OWN blog and lets get the WORD out....Buy a BENTLEY BOW!!!

All of the photography is done by my AMAZING friend and photographer B4 Photography. Please check out her work...she does a fabulous job. She is the DFW area but travels all around Texas for an extra charge. She also participates in several charity organizations around the DFW area. She is a phenomenal person and has a great eye!! Can't say enough nice things about my girl!! Check out her BLOG and WEBSITE!!

ALL 3 BOWS are available on a headband, a french clip or an alligator clip. They are also available for purchase as piggie bows. If you purchase them as piggie bows there is a price break. Thanks again...hope you LOVE the BOWS!!

The 1st Bentley Bow is the SMALLEST of all 3. This adorable Chocolate Zebra Bow has 2 layers with a swavorski crystal in the middle. Simple and sweet and perfect for piggies or on a headband for a newborn.

- Sm. Bentley on Headband: $16
-Sm. Bentley on french/alligator: $10
-Sm. Bentley Piggies: $18

The 2nd Bentley Bow is the Medium size. I LOVE this BOW! It is SO me! It is a large brown bow with the chocolate zebra layered on top with light pink marabou fluff in the middle. SO CHIC and ADORABLE!!

-Med. Bentley Bow on headband: $22
-Med. Bentley Bow on french/alligator: $15
-Med. Bentley Bow Piggies: $25

OK...LAST but NOT least!! This BIG Bentley Bow is NOT for the meek. This BOW speaks volumes and I GUARANTEE if your baby or little girl wears this she will get TONS of attention! This bow WILL stop traffic. It is a BIG bow and one of glam R baby's speciality's! Over the TOP and SO sassy! This bow has LAYERS and LAYERS of coordinating ribbon! It contains the chocolate zebra, leopard print, brown/pink dots and it has a light pink shabby chic rose in the middle! FABULOUS!!!

BIG Bentley Bow on Headband: $34
Big Bentley Bow on French/Alligator: $25

Again.....please feel free to post this on your blog and LETS get the orders in for Miss Bentley!! Also please pray for The Welsh Family...they will be enduring alot in about a week. Pray for a successful surgery for Miss Bentley and a quick recovery. I KNOW she will do great!! :o)

Thanks so much guys....have a great week and lets get the word out on the Bentley Bows!!

Here's an update for you! Grandaddy is doing much better...the Dr.'s overreacted and everyone else in the family reacted. My mom asked the Dr. on Sunday night if it was ok for my Granny to come see him in the morning and the Dr's response was he thinks it will be TOO late! WHAT? So anyways...PRAISE GOD...he is back with Granny and doing ok. His regular Dr. saw him Monday morning and he said he did indeed look bad but it could be 2 days, 2 weeks or a year. For now we are all relieved and thanking God it wasn't it his time yet.

Nickleback Pictures, Images and Photos

This leads me to this amazing song I just put on my blog! I have become even MORE into Nickleback because my nephew, SHAYNE LOVES them!! This song really hit home for my feelings on my Grandaddy and on our current situation. With us moving to Vegas, people think we are CRAZY for leaving coorporate world, chasing dreams, not having 401k, insurance, etc.....BUT we LIVE with NO regrets....we have chosen this path and are SOO excited!! It is a bit scary but we are embracing it and going with it!

Like the LINE in this SONG, " EACH DAY IS A GIFT AND NOT A GIVEN RIGHT!!! Leave NO STONE unturned, LEAVE your FEARS behind.....and TRY to take the PATH less traveled BY!!"

We are LIVING by this and it is SO true...each day is a GIFT from GOD....DON'T take it for granted...tell your loved ones you love them, enjoy your family and loved ones, and LIVE LIFE!!!!

Have a great rest of the week and weekend!! We are off to SA to visit family and I am off to see a friend that I haven't seen since I was 18!!! SOOO excited!! She has been a blessing to me since returning to my life...I will have tons on pics from this weekend!! on the watch out for SUPER exciting news and PICTURES and a BLOG about my recent trip to LA!!


TOTALLY THANKFUL for all the prayers and my GRANDADDY'S recovery and being back with Granny. God is good and he is in control. Thank you Lord! :o)

Prayers for my family please.....

Granny and Grandaddy at our wedding 5 yrs ago.

This is a first for me. Don't really even know what to say really. Tonight around 9:30pm my dad called me and said he had just got home from Corpus and that the move of my grandparents to a more 24 hour care facility went well, but Granddaddy's blood pressure had dropped significantly and he was rushed the ER by EMS. He is not doing well. The Dr. has told my family that his body is shutting down and they gave him 24 hours.
A little grandparents had to move out of their home almost 2 years ago and they moved into a smaller home. They still needed constant care. Granny needs someone to make her take her medicine and use her oxygen and grandaddy needed someone to help him get around, get to the restroom, oxygen, etc. Slowly...things have been getting worse....they have both taken a couple bad falls and they recently went to 24 hour care at their home. It just wasn't working...they needed to be somewhere else where an RN could take care of them and get all the care they were needing. So this weekend was yet another move. Everything was fine and Granny did really well with the transition but not Grandaddy. I talked to my sister tonight and she said that maybe now that Granny was being taken care of that he felt like he could go. They have always been together, ALWAYS! I'm not quite sure how to deal with this....I've NEVER in my life had someone pass away that was family or someone that I was really close to. I feel like someone has hit me in the stomach. Please pray for my family and most of all pray for my Granny. I don't know how she will deal with this.....Brian and I will be heading to SA this week and then on to Corpus. I will try and keep u guys updated. Thank you so much for the prayers. (sorry if I'm rambling or not making any sense..)
