Penelope Lane Holiday Boutique THIS Saturday and a chance to win spending money

The Penelope Lane Holiday Boutique is coming up this Saturday! We have a lot of returning vendors and a ton of new vendors too! Because we are not having a central check out this time (each booth will be doing their own sales) we have more room for more vendors, so the lobby, four connecting ballrooms and patio will be filled with handmade goodness! Bring a friend and make it a fun girls day out! 
Hope to see you there!

p.s. we are giving away shopping money to use at the boutique on Saturday! $100, $50, $25!

THE BOOK Katie Can Do and You Can Too

Recently Katie wrote and published a book! 

Here is a little video our talented friend Kyle Ahlstrom put together, where Katie (and I, but please just ignore me. so embarrassing.) explain a little about why she wrote this book. 

We have been so excited about it and are thrilled to launch it during the month of October, which is a very special month. It is Spina Bifida awareness month as well as disability awareness month. 
During the month of October, part of the proceeds from this book will go towards helping other children receive adaptive bikes!
 We are hosting a launch party on October 15th where books and t-shirts will be available for purchase. If you are unable to attend the launch party, books are also available on katiecandoandyoucantoo.com
The launch party on October 15th will be held at this gorgeous venue, the El Dorado Park Golf Course, big white event tent. Bring your family and friends and enjoy some dessert, a beautiful view and get a signed copy of "Katie Can Do And You Can Too!
Here is what the publisher had to say about the book: 

Katie CAN do…and you CAN too! is a heartfelt lesson for children and grown-ups about what is possible. With hard work, a can-do attitude, and a positive approach to life, anything is possible. The book is easy to read, teaches about Spina Bifida, and lifts the spirit. Full of beautiful photos and Katie's narration, this book succeeds at being inspirational, hopeful, and best of all…fun.

Katie hopes that readers will enjoy her book and her story. She has shared her personal journey in order to help inspire others, with and without visible challenges, to work hard, remain positive, and hold true to a can-do attitude. 

Katie can do, and you can too!

Katie Surfing with Life Rolls On


Saturday Katie had the most amazing opportunity to go surfing with Life Rolls On!
She had an incredible time. My husband put together this video that sums up the day perfectly!
We are all still on cloud nine from the experience! 








Katie might not be able to walk, but she sure can Surf, thanks to Life Rolls On!

Update on Little Penelope Lane

I'm not keeping up this blog as much any more because:

1. It's Summer and it's time to play with the littles! 

2. Katie's surgeries and recovery obviously took priority this past Spring. Thankfully, she is healing up very well, but it just put this blog way too far back to try and catch up. 

3. I am trying to keep up my family blog and keeping up with this blog, that blog, and the boutique blog is too much.

4. I am not sure what direction I want to take Little Penelope Lane, so for right now it's on hold.

However, Penelope Lane Boutique is not on hold and in full swing! 

We have booked out our venue (Old Ranch Country Club in Seal Beach) for the next THREE shows:

Fall: September 28, 2013
Holiday: November 23, 2013
Spring: March 29, 2014
Save the Date!

We will be taking applications for the fall show in July with details on the

So for now, I'd love for you to follow me on the family blog OR on Instagram  until I figure out this little corner. Come the fall, I will have all my kids in school, so I will have a little more time to put towards blogging and all the fun that comes with it! 

Thanks Friends!
