Bridget and Bob Othoudt, and their children Riley, 5, and Elise, 20 months, live in Princeton.
Bridget is originally from Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, and Bob from the Staples-Motley area of northern Minnesota. Bridget is head waitress and assistant manager at Pizza Barn in Princeton, and Bob is a printing press operator for ECM Publishers. The two met when they were working at Pizza Hut.
Bridget started a business more than a year ago called Bridget’s Barrettes & Boutique. Through the business, she makes and sells barrettes, headbands, tutus and tutu dresses. She got the idea for making barrettes after daughter Elise was born. “Elise had a head full of hair and I loved having a girl and putting things in her hair,” Bridget said.
Bridget’s interests include taking care of Riley and Elise, listening to alternative rock music, cooking and baking. Bob enjoys music. He plays electric bass guitar and used to play in some bands.
