For the past…almost 5 months, I’ve been carting around a bag filled with all things baby. But, in the all too near future, I will go back to being a purse wielding momma. When this time comes, I will be headed back here. 3 Cords is an organization in Haiti that employs Haitian women to make all kinds of lovely things with which you can carry all your treasures. I love this organization because they were founded post earthquake to give women who had been injured in the quake an opportunity to provide for their families. Their purses are well made and beautiful, and simply carrying around one of their creations makes me smile.
Blue Bunny Bordeaux Cherry Chocolate ice cream. Are you kidding me? I don’t normally care for ice cream. Don’t get my wrong, I mean it does contain sugar, but I much prefer cake with a thick layer of homemade icing. This ice cream however is marvelous. Truly.
Four year olds who use big words. My four year old’s new favorite is, “literally.” She actually uses it correctly…most of the time.
Incomplete sentences. A place to write in a conversational style and not worry about whether every slew of words between a capital letter and a period has a noun and a verb or how many commas I use. (Sorry about that one. I know it drives some of you crazy.) I do want to spell correctly though, so if you see where I have messed this up, call me on it. Oh, and I will never confuse then and than, or it’s and its. That is my pledge to you. Except when I do.
Little girls in dresses. My girls would wear nothing but dresses if their closets would allow. Specifically I love Hanna Andersson dresses. They cover everything they are supposed to and with four girls I can justify spending a little more money for the quality. Get on their e-mail list and watch for sales. They post them early in the mornings. Yesterday I picked up swimming suits for the girls for next summer at a huge discount.
What are some of your favorite things?
