Texas Size Bows

From the moment I heard, "It's a girl."  I have dreamed of Texas size know... the ones that are bigger than a baby's head. 

 I think this obsession goes back to my childhood where my super adorable and blond sister wore cute bows every day.  Meanwhile, I was sentenced to "the bob" - that would be a short, single layered, chin length haircut parted right down the middle.  I guess if I'm being completely honest, I did have Texas size bangs. Ha!  Big bangs, and big bows are hardly the same thing! 

 The truth is I did wear bows, but not nearly as often nor as big as Amy's.  Call me jealous if you will.  Ha!  I promise, I'm not scarred for life over this.  I am, however, in love with big bows! I even tried my hand at making them, but seeing as I don't have a crafty bone in my body, that was an epic fail!  

Lucky for me, one of my pageant sisters is talented in that area and has a small businesses making bows. Jossy Belle Bows.   She makes them both custom and standard and in all colors, fabrics and sizes.  You have to check her out on Facebook!

This was the first bow I ever ordered for Ellie.  It says "little sis."  I think this will always be special because she wore it home from the hospital.  Even though it's still a little (ok, a lot) big, it represents all things pink, frilly, and larger than life!

I think this looks more like a Derby hat than a in KY that's fine too!  It is so adorable, ya'll.  Really, this picture doesn't do it justice.  This is one of those bows that we'll have for a very long time!

You can't really see this, but it's a Louisville Cardinals bow.  I actually ordered this when they won the Sweet 16.  I'm not really a Cards fan, but I knew Eric would totally go for it.  I figured it was a great excuse to buy a new bow. 

What Southern Belle doesn't own something camo, really?  Well, me...but that's another story for another day.  I think Ellie will look super cute next to her daddy when he's decked out in hunting gear this fall for quail season. 

Of course this spring favorite got a lot of use, and Jessica offers it in a ton of colors.  Every time I see Ellie in this I think of the queen ant in "A Bug's Life."

We had our newborn pictures made in this sweet headband.  Ya'll the detailing is amazing.  Jessica is truly talented, and we are so grateful that she shares her gift with us.  

I know you're going to ask, so let me answer.  NO, Ellie doesn't not wear bows all day.  In fact, she doesn't  even wear then every day.  It's a hassle keeping up with them and more often than not, if anyone besides me is holding her, they take it off.  Even Eric can't stand to have her in a bow.  We'll talk about this another time...ha!  When she does wear a bow it's rare that it's absolutely huge.  The weight of Texas Size Bows just make them harder to keep on .  

All of that to say, whatever your  preferences- small, medium or large, solid or custom, bows or headbands, Jessica is amazingly talented and completely professional.  So, be sure to check her out!
