My Latest Snag: New Clothes for Mr. Magpie.
I’m working on getting everyone’s spring wardrobe in order, and have purchased a few things for my man I thought I’d share:
May go back for these for him to wear on Easter, too!
P.S. Unrelated, but just sent a few sets of these Matouk initial towels as a housewarming gift – conveniently 25% off at the moment. This is probably my most-frequently-sent housewarming gift! (I own them too!) The towels are so fluffy and lovely, and who doesn’t love white? Also, the monogram is interesting. Some people aren’t monogram people, but the style here is so different.

Weekend Musings: This Is the Best Day Ever.
Recently, mini has started squealing: “this is the best day ever!” whenever we are about to embark on something that pleases her — a baking project, a new sticker book, arts and crafts, a trip to the park with donuts, dinner and a movie, etc. The fact that she makes this pronouncement virtually every other day of the week has not diminished its authenticity or charm. The hyperbole is so patently the province of a four-year-old, and so deeply reminiscent of the unbridled feeling of youth, when everything (!) could (!) feel (!) staccato (!) and (!) exciting (!) I specifically remember the sensation of running out to my mother’s car in the pickup line and begging for my best friend Ellie to come over, or for me to go over to her house — we were inseparable from the ages of 8-11 — and, if permission was secured, radiating with joy! I would sprint back to Ellie, and we’d jump around in glee. This is the best day ever!
What great energy to bring to any given Tuesday. The next time something goes my way, or my favorite dish is on the menu (orechiette with broccoli rabe and Italian sausage), or I snag a great deal, or I find out another family member has been vaccinated, I’m going to say it out loud: “This is the best day ever!”
+Speaking of gingham, just added this fun iPhone case to my cart.
+Target always does great storage baskets.
+These tiny bunny dishes are $5 and so adorable. I love the tiny size for dessert/snack this Easter!
+Such a cute bag for spring — Chanel vibes for $129.
+Think I might have to order this specific pair of Vejas. As you know, I’ve been eyeing this style for awhile. Love the blues. Would look great with white denim or a white dress.
