My Latest Snag: Lattes, Crackers, and Kids’ Stuff.
First: I really wish I was seated at the table above right now. I can almost taste that croissant. Instead, my bottled latte will have to do — which brings me to a random assortment of recent purchases:
MARY’S GONE CRACKERS CAYENNE — PEOPLE GO CRAZY OVER THESE??
You’re Sooooo Popular: Toy Organization Bins.
The most popular items on the blog this past week:
+Inexpensive bins for toy organization. Note: the mediums slide under both of my children’s cribs/beds, which is delightful.
+Who doesn’t love a classic striped shirtdress? Especially when it’s 40% off.
+Obsessed with this swimsuit in the white.
+My favorite juice glasses…which I also use for wine.
+Cutest embroidered cardigan for a little one.
#Turbothot: Classic Parent Advice.
I have been missing my parents terribly, and with Mother’s Day tomorrow, I particularly enjoyed this illustration of “Classic Mom Advice.” My mom would definitely say all of these things, along with the following, which I have heard so many times throughout my 36 years of life, I can anticipate their arrival in our conversation:
“If you’re stomach is upset, stick to the BART diet: bananas-apples-rice-toast.”
“One thing a day, Jen. Just set out to accomplish one thing a day.”
“Always keep a couple ginger ales and saltines in the pantry.”
“Go to bed early.”
“Write your thank you notes as soon as possible after receipt of a gift. And make those notes personal.”
“Call if you will be late — even a few minutes late.”
And from my Dad:
“Never look back. Keep moving forward.”
“Never go anywhere without reading material.”
“Never leave until tomorrow what can be done today.”
“Grind it out.” [Meaning, dig in and work hard.]
“Water and exercise heal most things.”
“Be civil, above all else.”
What classic parent advice do you have to share?
+This may actually transform me into the kind of girl who wears a denim jacket.
+This blouse is AMAZING (under $70).
+This floral maxi is everything (and $25!)

+Absolutely smitten with this dress.
