Bumps

As in, life’s roads are full of bumps.  In our case, baby bumps.

We love the bump.  We have an entire site devoted to it, after all.  As it stands in our business, we’re always on the lookout for the latest and greatest.

Organic Boys' Sky Social Gift Set

This site may not be the latest, but we think it’s one of the greatest.  The offspring of The Knot, The Bump is a one-stop shop for all things baby.  Resources, articles, nursery ideas, shopping…you can even type in your city and find what resources are available locally.  What’s more, it’s very user-friendly and hip.  Moms to be, or even new moms, we highly recommend checking it out.

Pillow Talk

It’s been warm here in Virginia – it’s supposed to be 75 today!  And while we certainly don’t expect this warm weather to last (it IS still February, after all), it’s not helping our serious case of spring fever.

We’re ready for light.  Not just as in sunshine, but as in less heaviness.  And we’re in search of a quick fix to make our winter wrapped homes feel like spring, even if it’s not quite here yet.

Pillows are an easy, budget-friendly way to lighten the atmosphere.  They’re a quick fix, and can accommodate changing seasons, or even just changing moods.

We think pillows are the perfect way to feed our fever!

Catalogue Craziness

And we’re off.  Catalogue craziness has officially begun.  Stay tuned for behind-the-scenes glimpses into what happens during our Posh photo shoots.  Glamorous?  You be the judge.  Right now, things look like this.

But, it gets worse before it gets better, right?  We hope so.

Caddy Shack

So, thinking about Groundhog Day got me thinking about Caddyshack. And Bill Murray.

Which led me to this.

Now, I know it’s a gopher.  I googled “gopher” and “groundhog” and “what’s the difference between a gopher and a groundhog” and there IS a difference.  Groundhogs are bigger and can swim.  But let’s face it, they’re both rodents, they look alike and have funny movies made about them.  STARRING BILL MURRAY!

I wonder if kids today will understand the humor in this artwork?  I haven’t stopped giggling since I saw it.  Thinking about ordering it and its counterpart for my son’s room.  He’ll think it’s a little funny and weird — typical of his mother.

Caddyshack

I prefer to think I’m clever and funny.  But oh well.  To each his own.

What do you think?  Is this artwork something you’d “gopher?”

(And,now you know WHY my kids think I’m weird.)

Early spring!

I never thought I’d be so happy to see another overcast day.  Puxatawny Phil actually DIDN’T see his shadow, and so of course this means Spring is on its way.

This is GOOD news.  I don’t know about you, but I’ve had about as much of winter as I can stand this year. Thankfully, I’m not in Chicago or the Northeast right now.  I see rain and an unseasonably warm day ahead.  I also see an irreversible case of Spring fever in my future.

Heavenly Holland Change-it-up Clutch

And so, I’m immersing myself in all things springy today!  Like this.  And this.  And this!

Happy Spring!!

Bargain!

I love this time of year.  I mean, have you been to Target lately?  I got a pair of boots (leather!), 2 pairs of kids jeans, slippers, kids’ tennis shoes and fleece pajamas — and I spent less than $50.  Ca-ching!

I love a bargain.  And with three children who all need stuff and who are all now at an age where they’re doing stuff (soccer, music lessons, swim team, etc….times 3!) I need them more than ever.

Posh Outlet

Speaking of bargains, have you checked out the Posh Outlet?  I just ordered 5 of these pewter spoons, which make the most excellent baby gifts.  And while I was at it, I decided to gift myself with this clutch.  Because I love it so very much and considering all the snow days we have had lately I DESERVE IT.

Happy bargain shopping!
