The GG Cap from Girls and Giggles had a fantastic review on the popular LeeLou Blog - Just for clicks. We appreciate Julie Macdonald's warm post and are glad that her daughter loves her GG Cap. To get your own check out our kickstarter campaign.
Here is some of what Julie wrote:
"OK, these hats are pretty cool. Not only do they have a hole (or two) in the back for your pony tail, they also have a built in hair tie that keeps your hair in place. Best part is that you don’t get ponytail headaches…which I suffer from frequently" To read more, click here.
We had an awesome interview with Hurdie Burk on his radio show last night. He was tons of fun and super easy to talk to. Props to him for helping us get the word out about the GG Caps and Kickstarter! He has a youtube channel where he posted our interview. You can download it to an MP3 player or just listen online.
Also want to give a big thanks to Julie at leelou Blogs for featuring us on her "Just for Clicks" page! YAY! Julie you are awesome!
Thanks to everyone for the support and sharing our links with friends and family!
Here are a few pictures from our most recent photo shoot. Can you handle it...

Typically when we think of a boardroom we picture a huge table with business men and women, all in suits, discussing business strategy - Right?
Our "boardroom" here at Girls and Giggles isn't quite the same. It changes everyday actually, and sometimes every hour! Haha. We frequently have our "boardroom" meetings at the pool, or at the gym after a workout. We've even had "boardroom" meetings at the grocery store while pushing our carts side by side often times throwing groceries in at random, all the while saying, "Stay out of the middle of the aisle, no we're not buying candy, who put this in the cart please don't touch the blood from the cow tongue..." You get the point. Trying to start a successful business while raising all of our amazing kids is hard work. Sometimes we just have to bust out with a crazy dance move or song just to laugh. After all that's what our company is all about - reminding women to have fun!

When we make our videos it doesn't just take us one try. Don't we wish! Luke did a good job editing this so everyone can see the best parts...the endings to all the takes we do!

We are SO close to our Kickstarter launch! It's tomorrow everyone! As Napoleon Dynamite would say, "YESSSSS." I think the closer we get the goofier we get. It's a really good thing that there's 2 of us because between us we almost have 1 full functioning brain. If mom were here we would be complete!
We are putting so much time into this and we are all so thankful for the love and patience of our kiddos and husbands. They are great sports and are all great helpers. This has been such a great learning and teaching experience for all us.

This is so typical of me and Andrea! We seriously think we're hilarious. Most people don't know what this Kickstarter thing is that we keep talking about. Of course we couldn't explain it in normal way - that's just boring to us. So we decided to explain it by doing a video of Andrea interrogating me about Kickstarter. We love it and laughed so hard when we watched it. Not so sure our husbands think we're as funny as we think we are. :)

This is such a fun video! Luke put it together and did a fantastic job. Post this to your FB page, blogs, twitter, and any other place people will see it! It's great.
And yes and you can tell from the picture we ARE going a little crazy...in a good way.

Yesterday we spent HOURS going from store to store trying to find caps we could transform into GG Caps until our Kickstarter campaign has been funded and we can manufacture our own caps. Caps that actually fit our heads, are colorful, blinged out, etc etc. We learned several things throughout the day (and into the night):
- There are no fitted, unstructured, colorful caps for women that actually fit smaller heads
- The caps offered for women at retailers are few and far between
- You are forced to choose between either the cap that's currently trending (which in this case is a hugely hideous flat bill with a mushroom style dome) or various sports teams
- We have freakishly small pinheads that allow us to only fit into the toddler/youth caps that are made for 1-4 year olds
So sit back and enjoy the chaos...I mean ride. Stay tuned for more videos.
