Operation Shower + 100K Fans!


Hello friends! Oh my goodness, this past week has been a blur. I caught the flu last week and it knocked me down hard. I was in bed for four days straight and therefore I am so behind on all things TomKat! It feels great to be sitting at my desk finally this morning, ready to get to get back into the swing of things. Being sick is not fun, especially for someone who is scheduled to the max. I had to cancel a Valentine's Day collaboration shoot that I had been looking forward to and sadly I had to miss Vicki's father's funeral on Friday, which I was also supposed to style a dessert table for. Instead, I spent the afternoon at urgent care. I powered through Monday to spend the day setting up for the big Operation Shower event we styled at The Phoenix Open. Luckily my amazing team was ready to go and got everything together. The event was yesterday and it turned out beautiful. Even with my dizziness and hoarse voice, I was able to enjoy watching all of the amazing military moms be showered with incredible gifts. I can't wait to share all of the details from the shower with you.

With all that said, I am happy to be BACK and ready to get back on track! In the midst of being stuck in bed....something BIG happened.....we reached 100,000 fans on Facebook! Can you believe it? This is definitely a cause for celebration, I just need to figure out what the best way would be to celebrate!! (free printables? a shop sale?)

    Glad you're feeling better Kim.
    The thought of a SHOP SALE is my dream come true!
    Just received my fabulous order of the mini favor jars (so adorable).
    Would love to order the many other things on my must-have list!

    Glad you're feeling better. Just don't push it too fast, take it from someone who knows. Rest may not be a luxury we have, but it is sometimes a requirement. Big congrats on 100k, fab! During the last party I had for my daughter in Dec., I got asked several times, "Is that Tomkat?" You're gaining fans in Philly;) While I am a HUGE fan of free (truely my fav word), my vote is for a sale. Many various events coming up this year (scout banquet, communion, wedding shower, blah blah, etc). Speaking from a purely selfish perspective, a sale would greatly benefit me. I'll try to deal with whatever you decide ;)

    Take care,

    P.S. While you were out of commision, did you hear about an upcoming tour?! NKOTB!

  17. Heather @ Glitter and Gloss 02/01/2013

    Glad you're feeling better, and hope you're 100% soon!

  18. Amanda 02/02/2013

    Sorry to hear you were sick, but I'm glad you're feeling better. It's so hard being sick with kids, and on top of that, running your own business!

    But congratulations on reaching 100k fans!!!! Amazing! I've been following since you're old web page (remember those day? ha!), and am so thrilled for you!
