Mini Boden at Nordstrom

I went to get a haircut last Saturday night and couldn't walk past Nordstrom without going in to look at the little boy clothes. My son (like his father) is very particular about what he wears, so I'm always looking for something he would like. He mostly sticks with jeans, polos, t-shirts, khakis - but mostly in solid color only and he doesn't like heavy or thick material. Occasionally I will buy him a SpiderMan or a StarWars shirt only when he begs (because I really don't like character clothing - including pajamas). I actually broke down last week and bought him some SpongeBob PJs because he wanted them so bad.

I stopped dead in my tracks when I noticed the oh-so-famliar hoodies from the Mini Boden catalog that stalks my mailbox almost every week. I'm not kidding you - I started texting my friends, posted it on Facebook and tweeted about. I got so excited, I asked the ladies at the counter for more details. They said Nordstrom has started carrying Mini Boden for both boys and girls and that they would be getting more shipments in over the next couple of weeks.'s the good part...if it goes well, they may add women's clothing!!!

Oh my poor pocketbook (as we call it in the south)...

Oh, and for you out there that have teens, have you seen the new Johnnie B teenware line? Cute stuff! I hope my guy dresses like this when he's older!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
