Oliver's Labels

Was on Mommies with style (another great mommy shopping blog) the other day and they had a post about Oliver's Labels. I had written about these before but saw that they had some new, updated items. With their 10% off discount code (oliversfriends) I immediately ordered these saftey wristbands for both John & Anna ($11.99 for 17.)

Great for field trips, amusement parks, you name it! I put their name and my cell phone number on it. Knowing Anna is a runner, I found this to be a great product!

While there, I finally ordered my mini tags for them too. Little name tags for their back packs and lunch boxes. Really cute!
