Booty-licious


Just back from my trip to LA. Can I just tell you how fabulous the shopping is there? I spotted these great new boots for babies. I didn't get any for MSP because it won't be cool here for another few months, but for those of you that are lucky enough to actually have fall weather, here ya go. Robeez now makes booties. So cute, and like the shoes, they look like they will stay on well. Also saw these baby Frye harness boots. I have the adult version so we can match! Both boots come it different colors.

Open 24 Hours



I never thought about it buy my son as a young infant seemed to be "open" 24 hours 7 days a week. Well, that's how I felt at least ... no sleep ... no concept of day or night ... everything seem to have blended together. The shirt would be even more hilarious if the "Open 24 Hours" was a neon sign blinking every second. Oh well, I still fancy the tee regardless. I also am keen on this Silver Dragon tee seen below. This tee is so ultra cool and I can see my son wearing one of these, my little Bruce Lee. These tees and other fab designs can be found at Go, Goose, Go!.

Let's Get Together



Being a mother of a 14 month old son, I meet a lot of fabulous moms at the park, Gymboree, etc ... The conversation turns to planning future playdates and exchanging contact information, so I rummage through my diaper bag to find a pen and paper, what a hassle. Most times my pen is stuck in a diaper and then I remember that my notebook is in my son's carseat as the latest distraction toy to calm a fussy baby. It would be so much simpler if I had these chic calling cards from Coco Pink.

Coco Pink creates fashionable calling cards in an array of patterns and designs. All cards are printed on sturdy 12 pt gloss stock coated with a water resistant UV coating. The cards are printed in easy to store business card size [2" x 3.5"]. Visit Coco Pink to make your your's and your children's social life a little easier with their stylish calling cards.

Chaos of Childhood



If you're like me and want something other than ducks and puppies for your child, take a look at Baby Anarchy. With a taste of retro and rock, the apparel from Baby Anarchy oozes with a bit of cool. Take a look at the above onesies, it's a two-color garment with "Sweet" plum cherries on the front and a "Sour" green lemon on the bum. The ideal description for my son these days ... it's like I have a miniature Jekyll/Hyde at home.

To go along with the theme of retro, each tee or onesies comes packaged in their signature record sleeve. Baby Anarchy's collection is available in short sleeve onesies or long sleeve tees. Visit Baby Anarchy to see more of their anthology of designs.

Pier 1 Kids

So I just found out on my Pier One Bill statement that they have opened Pier One Kids! How exciting. I have not been to Pier One in a while, still paying off the stuff I bought months ago on a candle clearance kick which turned into new glasses and some other dangerous stuff lest I mention the placemats....

Here is a peek and I encourage you to visit their website to see what they have going on for the KIDS.

My Picnic Basket



When my son and I go to the park, I’m thinking of what sort of toys to take with me to keep him occupied. I think that this My Picnic Basket Play Set would keep my little one as busy as a bee. The make believe picnic set is soft to the touch and is filled with vital picnic supplies. There is a hot dog, soda, condiments, ham and cheese sandwich, fruit, and even plates and napkins. You can carry the basket for easy transport and when it’s playtime, unzip it flat.

This exemplary play set can be found at The Spoon Sisters. Don’t forget to check out their other play sets, Bento Sushi Box, Hollywood Clapboard, and Pizza Party.

Paper Dolls

My memory is not great, but I do remember loving my paper dolls as a child. You know, the ones that are cardboard that you dress up in different outfits that wrap around the doll with tabs. I had Holly Hobby ones!
I found a company that custom makes paper dolls of your own child. You send in a photo, and in return you get a package with a doll made to look like your child by a portrait artist, your child's name on the cover, and 8-10 outfits and accessories! They can also custom make more outfits for a fee. Check out Paper Kids' different packages, it is so exciting!

Repost from ThriftyChick Blog... New Jeans at GAP

Got a little post card from GAP today, well actually my husband did but I swiped it. They have a few new styles of jeans and one that I am particularly psyched to try is the CURVY..

ooh yes, "if you waist is smaller than your hips" - yup that's me.


I am going to try them this week. My postcard I ( me meaning I stole it from my husband) got said that all jeans are $39.95 for the month of August! Reg price for Curvy Jeans? $58.

There is just no stopping a thrifty chick.

We are always spotting funny tees for your babies and older kids but what about for Mom? We just spoke to the owners of : www.PlanetMomTshirts.com and will be featuring a Daily Stroll on them tomorrow BUT we had to leak this because their tees are just SO awesome.

How about a tee that says "Trophy Wife"? "Because I Said So"? There are too many to choose from- you are going to want one of these in each color and embroidered phrase.


This is my favorite:
