Cute hairbows!!! I have been meaning to make some for my dd and I haven't gotten around to it.

As for your question, considering that I live in my hometown I would get there by the afternoon. To make it to my childhood home is probably a 20 min drive. We haven't ventured far from home...yet.

Those are very sweet! Any of my 3 girls would enjoy them. I live 3 hours from my hometown (where I grew up), so yes, I'd make it.

My little girl is still young so I don't have many cute hair things yet. I'm hoping to add to the ones we have.

I live about 2 1/2 hours from my home town. Couldn't stand to move too far away :)

I also wanted to say that I LOVE the picture at the top of your page. How precious is that??

Hipmomofboyz said...

Those are so cute..My girlfriends little girl would love them

emerzim said...

Yep! I'm within 10 minutes of my childhood homes. Left for a while, but decided I actually really like it here in the California desert.

jjstringham said...

Cuteness. I live in my hometown, so yes. It's only about three miles to the house where I grew up. (my dad still lives there) Thanks for the great giveaway!

claire said...

Well, it depends on how early I get up in the morning...maybe if I got up at 5 am I could make it by 3pm...ish. Love the hair bows-you can never have too many of those!

Yes, I could get there in 1 hour and 30 minutes!!!!

Adorable bows! It would take me about 3 days to drive home, I live in Arizona, hometown in Illinois and I am not a good long distance driver!

leigh said...

Rachel said...

Only if I were driving to the airport! My husband dragged me to the southwest from MA.

Seeryusfam@msn.com said...

We wouldn't have to leave. In fact, we could walk to the house I grew up in...it's just around the corner from where we live now! And I wouldn't change it for the world! Great question...and giveaway!!

Danielle said...

I live minutes from my home town, so yes i could make it

Katy said...

When i got married..i only moved about 9 miles away from home...LOL so i can reach my hometown in about 3 minutes! LOL

Sweetpeas said...

Those are cute! I live about 45 min from the house I grew up in, if that's what you're asking LOL.

amie said...

Sadly I could not make it to my home town by afternoon...maybe after several of them.

I would love hairbows I have several girls and thier hair is long and out of control...even the youngest who is only a few months old...

Mama Luxe said...

Cute! My little one just started letting me put clips in her hair--and we could use more purple ones (her favorite color).

If I got in my car, I'd be in the town where I grew up in about 2.5 hours.

If I win, drop me a line at mamaluxe at gmail dot com or visit me at Mama Saga!

Thanks!

Christie said...

What adorable hairbows!
I'm about 2 hours from my hometown, so... yup! I could get there!

Jules said...

Very cute hairbows!! Thanks for the chance to win!

As for my hometown, less than an hour away. :)

gunzie said...

I love the hairbows, really cute!!
Well, for me if I leave in the morning, I would never make it in the same afternoon. I need to take 2 planes and a 45 minute drive to get to my hometown in Belgium.

Hélène said...

If I got in the car it would take 24 hours to get to my hometown, so no unless you are talking about tomorrow's afternoon. :(

Andrea said...

Depends how early we got into the car! It's a 5 hour drive...so we COULD make it there in a morning...if we left bright and early! hehe. :)

jczellar said...

Hmmmm...not unless I had a VERY fast car and a route where speeding was encouraged :-) We live in the Midwest now and I was born in Vancouver, Washington.

I have 3 daughters who would be very, very excited about hairbows.
The 3 boys and DH would probably pass, though the baby gets bows put in his hair by big sisters--LOL! And I, as Mommy, am always game for surprises! Everything you mentioned sounds great!

Lymeade Lady said...

Yep--I was there just 2 days ago.

Summer said...

Sadly I'm over 200 miles from my childhood home. So nope.

Katie said...

Yup! I could be there in about an hour!! Sounds so wonderful! Thanks for the chance to win!

JNM said...

It would take me 3 days in a car to get my hometown--ahh, writing that makes me sad---I miss you alabama! : ( But on a happy note--your bows are great! Fun and classy designs.

Stephanie said...

Love this giveaway and no I could not make it to my hometown by afternoon bu maybe by night time. It would take about 12 hours to drive it.:)

Since I moved back to my hometown last year, I can definitely make it there in less than 45 minutes!

Bunny B said...

Happy up-coming Birthday!!!

scrappysue said...

oh, and happy birthday for the 27th!

Amanda said...

if i got in my car i could get to my hometown by mid-morning...just a two hour drive. fun question! :) and i love the bows!

michelle said...

If I got in my car right now, I could definitely not make it to my hometown by afternoon, though I wish I could. I am in New England right now, and grew up on a farm outside of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan in Canada. I wish I could be there by afternoon so that I could see my mom and dad more often than once every three years. That is very difficult for me. I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

Melissa said...

These hairbows are soo cute! I have 2 little girls, so we can never have too many hairbows around here.

If I got in my car this morning, I'd make it to my hometown by lunch! And actually, that's what I plan to do on Saturday!

Mama Zen said...

Yes!

Sarah said...

I could make it to my hometown in less than an hour from my house. Those hair bows and clips so look so adorable. Thanks for the chance to win!

Sarah said...

Well, I guess I could probably make it to my hometown by afternoon, but it depends on how many potty stops I had to make. I have a 5 1/2 y.o. DD (fully potty trained obviously), a 3 3/4 y.o. DD (25% potty trained & only wants to potty when it's a novelty) and 2 y.o. DS who is into everything. When we stop at a rest area by ourselves, I have to take all 3 of me in with me, and I'd rather have dental work done than go through that. It involves putting my 2 y.o. in a sling to keep him from running off or touching the tiny "trash cans" attached to the sides of stalls, as well as cleaning off 2 different toilets to set both DDs on them simultaneously, then wiping them both since they can't hold themselves up otherwise, and finally helping all of them wash their hands at the end of it. Without such potty stops, it's only a 2 1/2 hour drive to my hometown. :-)

At any rate, DDs would love a hair clip (alligator clip) especially if it has pink or pale blue (think Cinderella) in it. Thanks for the chance to win!

Kacy said...

Very cute ribbons!
I live in my hometown, so I can definitely make it there quick :)

Erin said...

My dad worked for an oil company and I was born overseas. So, no, I couldn't drive there :) Fun question!

Andrea said...

Yep! It takes me about an hour to get to my hometown/out in the country hometown. LOL! Fun question.

susie said...

I sure could. We live about 2 hours from Alpharetta, GA where I grew up! I would love to win your giveaway!

Audra Marie said...

Those are so cute! Nope - I'm in Oregon, but was born in Texas. It would take more than half a day. :)

adashofsassitude(at)gmail.com

Jennifer said...

No. My hometown is 900 miles away, so I would not make it until late in the evening.

Liberty said...

love them, enter me please in the giveaway!

Rebecca said...

My hometown is about an hour away - so yes.

mattie said...

I'd have to leave awefully early in the morning to make it from texas to illinois by afternoon.... mengels[at]hotmail[dot]com

~D Spack~ said...

I wanna win! Cute. I've never won any of these so far!!! I'm across
Idaho from my little hometown in eastern Idaho. Thanks!

Lilith Silvermane said...

If I left at 5am, I'd get home around 5-6pm. So.. Kind of. *laughs*

I am living outside of Denver, and I grew up in the DFW area of Texas. So... Yea.. kinda!!

If I didn't have my kids I'd get there sooner, but 6 kids, that is a TOn of potty breaks.

(5 of them are girls.. I really need those bows)

christel said...

My hometown is in Hawaii and I currently live in Oregon. I would need to drive myself to the airport to get myself to my hometown but I would definitely get there in the afternoon Hawaii time.

Cute ribbons. My daughter would love them.

nor_lou said...

if I left at the midnight and drove straight through could be there by late afternoon

Liviania said...

Those are adorable!

As for my hometown, it depends. I could always drive there before afternoon, but I live in three cities (one being my hometown). The two I live in most of the time are five and three hours away.

kraziblinkgurli said...

super cute bows, i love the greem/pinks ones pictured!

and yes, my hometown is about an hour away...

Leah said...

My home town is a THREE DAY drive away! :( Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

abrianna said...

I love the bows!

I would not even be a quarter of the way to my hometown if I got in the car early in the morning and drove all afternoon!

Sarah Berry said...

I'd be in my hometown in less than 10 minutes.

Jessica B. said...

I still live in my hometown, and even though we are bloggy friends, I still want to enter to win.

Maybe I could trade you some sewing for some bows. I don't want to learn to make those and we go through about a million of them!

Ney_Strokes of Magic said...

The answer is yes . . .I live in my hometown. Matter of fact I just moved home a couple of years ago.

Beautiful bows! thanks for a chance to win.

Renee

WorldsGreatestMommy said...

Yep! It would take me 4 hours, but I'd make it, and yet I don't go enough.

Love the bows and the surprise.

Three P's in a Pod said...

Jon & Sarah said...

If I got in my car it would take me over two days to get to my hometown (Dallas to Phoenix). I would love some clippies for my daughters hair.

Chantelle said...

oh absolutely! i live less than 5 minutes from the house i grew up in! how awesome! thank you! please enter me.

The Chatty Housewife- said...

It would take 22 hours for me to drive "home." I love the bows!

Suzie G. said...

Heck yeah I could make it. I'm living in my hometown! I love it here and we'll stay here for as long as life allows. It is San Diego though so it's not exactly cheap. We may have to move one day, but for now, my roots are pretty firm in the ground.

katklaw777 said...

I grew up in the big city of Chicago, it would only take me about an hour from farm country usa where i live now. life is grand! thnx for a great giveaway. katklaw777(at)yahoo(dot)com

Tara said...

Great contest! I love hair bows.

I live in my hometown. I could drive to my birthplace in a day. It's about 4 hours away.

Tara said...

no, it would take me a couple days of driving to get to my hometown!
I would love to win this! Please enter me.

mommyofmany said...

With four girls and two granddaughters we can always use new hairbows! :)

I grew up an Air Force "brat," so we moved a lot. I suppose if I had to choose a location to call my hometown, it would be about four hours away, so I could get there in the afternoon.

Thanks for the fun giveaway!

Kathy said...

I'd love some hairbows for when my seven-month-old grows hair! Happy Birthday!

My little girls could use cute hairbows!!

Yes, I could make it to my hometown in about 4 hours!! Can't wait to make the trip in June for my sister's wedding shower!!

nottryingforaboy said...

Adorable!

I could make it to my hometown in about 45 minutes.

But we would need 30 hours of driving for LushMan's hometown.

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said...

Oh those hairbows are adorable! :)

I could make it to my hometown in about 2 1/2 hours (in good traffic). My dad still lives there. :)

Ginny said...

What cute hairbows! Yes I could get to my home town that quickly!

Genevieve P said...

My hometown is about 10 hrs away, so no--especially counting all the stops we'd need with 4 littles!

Telima said...

Those bows are adorable! My hometown is about 6 hours away, if you don't stop. So counting all the stops we have to make with our little kiddos...we'd still make it. It's just not a very fun drive! My email address is in my Blogger profile, just in case I win!

Becky said...

I'd love a chance to win these - my daughter's hair accessories haven't changed in a couple years, and she never had anything terribly cute to begin with.

There's no way on earth I'd be able to get to my hometown in half a day. My current home and my hometown are on opposite coasts of the country!

Jinxy & Me said...

These are so cute. I would be happy to win. Thanks for the giveaway!

Bai said...

Pink hairbrows i think.. My elder sister is about to give birth on to my first niece! So I am excited to have a baby girl niece, because all of her kids are boys.. If I will win, I will going to give it to my baby niece. :-)

Dawn said...

pink velcro clips :)

sweetsue said...

I was born in California but live in Oregon, if I drove very fast and was very lucky I could do it. But I wouldn't want to try. I love your cute little ribbons.

Megret said...

Yes. I'm only 4 hours away from my birthplace! Thank you!!

ihchicky said...

If I got in the car in the morning I could make it to my hometown by the afternoon easily. Since I wouldn't have to go very far because I live in the city where I was born. Doesn't get much easier than that!

Reeva said...

:( no i couldnt make it by tomorrow -- i'm 24 hrs away by car according to mapquest

i love your clips :) Great giveaway! I hope i'm the lucky winner! :)
