Go OU!!

We were fortunate to get tickets to the Big 12 Championship to see OU bet the socks off of Mizzou. We made a weekend of it and stayed overnight in Kansas City. We had a great time. The weather was fine till the 4th quarter...I couldn't take much more!

Christmas Parties

It's Christmas time!! I love Christmas...the lights, the colors, the music, and maybe the snow??:) Along with Christmas comes all the parties too! Here's a few pics of me and hubby at our church Christmas party and then some pic from the Ladies Christmas Gathering.

long time no see...

I've been working my fingers off trying to keep up with all my lovely customers request!

This has been a busy, but great fall season! The more orders that come in, the more ladies I hire to work! It's been fun building the busniess the last couple of months.
The other thing I'm super excited about is my newly organized bow studio! I found just the right thing for all the bolts of ribbon I have. It's so much easier to work when everything is organized. The empty space on the wall is for custom shelves that my husband is working on right now. I can't wait to have one whole wall just the way I want it. Now for the other three...

Christmas Sale-
What I have left from last season is on sale now. The sale will end tomorrow night. I'm working on new Christmas designs right now. Have any suggestions on what you want to see??

the busy season is here...

Need I say more?

Orders are coming in non stop, I've been working on new holiday designs and updating inventory codes on my website. Our friends that have been living with us for 2 months are moving out this weekend and my anniversary is Thursday. There's a whole bunch of other things going on too but I'll cross those bridges when I get there!

Here's a few pics of new fall bows you can find on the website.

Where have I been?

It's seems like forever since I've blogged! Life got busy and so did the hair bows:)

Matt is still in training for management at Abuelos and his schedule has been busy. We've also had house guest for over a month and that has been fun but tiring.

Our latest house purchase has been a flat screen TV that hubby has been drooling over for awhile! Isn't it odd how how we could afford it just before football season started;) And speaking of football...tonight is the first OU football game and we are excited!!

As far as Hair Candy is concerned, it's taken on a life all its own!! Orders started rolling in August and I have orders up till the 15th of September. That's awesome!! I've gotten quite a few new retail stores and my international orders have almost tripled in the last 6 months. It is time to hire a few more people. I'm looking forward to the help! As busy as it is, I still love as much as the first year I's been 4 years should doesn't seem like that long!

Here's the latest...Autumn Twist

morning routine

On Thursday's and Friday's I'm back to my normal morning routine. I really enjoy my quiet time. Today is definalty a "me" day. Breakfast and computer time alone, then off to the salon to get a new do. After that, I'll spend some time in the pool then get ready for church. It's going to be a great day.

Nothing too special has been going on around here. I've been working at Bella Vita Spa & Salon and working on headbands for Parker School Uniform Company. I've been spending a lot of time at our pool which is absolutely fantastic!

Matt is actually in training for management at Abuelo's Mexican Food Embassy. He's schedule has been really full with that. He's been working 12 hour days so I haven't seen him as much as usual.

My sister is still living with us and now our friends are too. They moved back to Tulsa from Chicago and are staying with us until there place is ready. They have a 10 month old baby girl and we have really enjoyed having her in the house. It's been fun matching hair bows for her!

Wrigley, our Jack Russell has had some issues lately. He's doing ok now, but overheats pretty easily so we're keeping our eye on him.

So there's an update to what's been going on lately. Hopefully the next entry will been more exciting!!

Family & Friends

Here's a look at what's been going on in the McWilliams home for the last 2 weeks. Our pool is finally up and running and my parents came down from Kentucky for a week visit. It was a week of swimming, fireworks, and of course mini golf!

Tea Party with Mimi

We went to Durant, OK to visit Matt's parents last weekend. A visit to "Mimi" & Papa's" is always relaxing. I always look forward to going down for some quiet time.

While we were there our neice, Maykalya had her birthday. One of her gifts was a tea set. She had to have a tea party as soon as got it. Uncle Matt and Mimi were her first guest.

Here's a cute pic of me and Maykalya.

after the storm

It's been extra rainy around here for awhile. A few nights ago we woke up to this...

This pool has been a hassle. We've filled 2 times only to realize that the ground wasn't as level as we thought. We figured the 3 time would be charm. It was full of water and ready to swim in...only it won't stop raining! The day after the big storm we wake up to find that all the water had poured out of the pool. How? Your guess is as good as mine! My husband is pretty frustrated by the whole thing...I sure don't blame him. This has been more work that we bargined for! Hopefully we will try again soon and be ready for the hot summer days that are fast approaching:)

just to clarify...

I'm not quitting the bow business! I've had a ton of people email and ask if I was quitting since I put some ribbon up for sale! I'm actually doing quit the opposite! I have 100 yard bolts of all the ribbon that I carry. I'm just getting rid of the little rolls so I can organize better. My bow room is busting at the seems with ribbon and bow goodies!

Thanks to all my faithful customers, I have had the biggest spring ever and already headed into a hectic summer. My retail locations are EXPLODING! I've got bows all over the US now and just recently started suppling bows to my first international company.

My customers are the best! Thanks for making Hair Candy a success!

lemon pie anyone?

we got a pool

When we got married four years ago I asked for 2 things...a dog and a pool. I can now say I have both! We bought one of these...

These pools look great in the picture, however I assure you they are not as easy as they say they are! The hardest part is finding level ground. Matt dig out the area for the pool making sure it was as even as possible, but after it was filled, we realized it wasn't so level! We joke and say we have a deep end and a shallow end. Every time we get in the water spills over the edge. I thought I could deal with it, but it's not going to work! Matt started digging another area in our backyard today so we can move the pool.

Even after all this, I'm still glad we have it. We've been it almost everyday. I look forward to laying in it on these soon approaching hot summer days!

bella vita spa & salon

I'm proud to be the newest employee at bella vita spa & salon! As a treat to myself for finishing the Parker school order, I decided it would be a good change to get out of the house for awhile and of course, get some pampering too! I am working the front desk at bella vita and I love it:) My first day was yesterday. I only work a few hours during the work so that leaves me plenty of time for bows and such! Come in and visit me some time!

church picnic

We had our church picnic today. It was a gorgeous day too! The day started with (plenty of sunscreen:) and hot dogs & hamburgers. After eating it was off for a couple games of sand volleyball. It was free exfoliation for the feet:)

After volleyball is time to relax in the shade and enjoy a cup of banana split

Dippin' Dots.

Here's a pic of twin brothers, Luke & Wyatt. Their little blonds heads were getting red and dad had to get creative! The next pic is one of me and hubby and my friend Melissa.
