I’m Not a Good Person

I’ve decided that this is the next gift I’ll buy my husband. Everyone knows that Little Giraffe is the perfect luxe baby blanket (and my go-to gift). Apparently I’m the only person who didn’t realize they have satin cover ups lined in faux fur. I’m totally buying one of these for Mr. G when his birthday rolls around in November… because ya know… I enjoy an oversized robe. $210 at LittleGiraffe.com

I Spent the Day Shopping

I spent the entire day shopping because my Dad is turning 70 this weekend. I found the most fabulous gift ever and I can’t even blog about it because he’ll probably just read this and buh-bye surprise.

Teaching Jane the Value of a Dollar (or 75)

Jane is invited to a birthday party at Sephora. Well, we think she’s invited, I don’t have the evite, but the host child assures her I need to RSVP. The girls will be getting makeovers and whatnot. It’s a very nice but fairly typical birthday party so I was going to buy my fairly typical birthday gift which puts us close to $40 with card and gift wrap. Since I’m off to Chicago tomorrow morning I need to buy the gift today and Jane has instructed me to purchase about …
