Target has nice bedding!

While shopping the other day at Target, I happened to notice some of their bedding sets. (click here) I especially liked their Woolrich Bear Bedding Collection. Now that both of my brothers are getting older, 13 and 10 respectively, this set is cute without being too juvenile. Also, since neither myself nor the boys are into sports, the football and baseball themed sets are out of the question. They had the quilt, which was nicely done in a patchwork of browns and blues, bedskirt, pillow shams, along with other bear themed accessories. Such as a lamp, curtains, string of lights, etc. This is something that both my boys a d I agreed is really cute. And, of course, there are matching sheet sets to go with it. There is enough variety that I can get both boys the same quilt, but the rest would be different for each room. And, to make it even easier to pick out the bedding items and the matching accessories even easier, they can both be perused and purchased on Target.com. How much simpler can shopping get?

Sweet tooth

Aahh……….chocolate. Some European chocolate would be utterly delightful. If only I had two things right now: money and a store nearby that sold fine European chocolates, such as these delicious looking truffles from stuffedchocolate.com. Just looking at these truffles is making my mouth water.

Looking at their various offerings in their Euro shop along with their offerings under their bakery shop listings are just out of this world. But, I guess I will just have to satisfy my cravings with just a run-of-the-mill Hershey bar. The most exotic offerings around here would be a Toblerone bar at the local Wal-Mart. Whoopee!

Oh well, until payday, I can at least dream about which of these luscious confections I will choose to order. And, then fantasize about which delightful confection I will enjoy first. ~sigh~ 

Following the British example!

When I was pregnant with my son, before I knew that he would be a boy, I really wanted a girl. I convinced myself that things would be so much easier with a girl, particularly with clothing. I have two school-aged brothers, and I see the hassle my mom goes through year after year, trying to find suitable boys clothing that isn't so dark, dreary and/or sports or camouflage oriented.

Well, I know that I'm going to be shopping for European kids clothes for my son! Unlike regular boys clothing, which is either bright, dark, sports oriented, camouflage covered, or just plain tacky with huge cartoons and such, European designer clothing is more traditional. Plaids, pastels, stripes, checks... the kinds of things I want to dress my sweet baby boy in!

Shopping for boys clothes and girls clothes

The best part of having a daughter is being able to dress her up in all of the great little girls clothing! I have a son as well, and I must admit that the selection of boys outfits is never as nice as what I can find for girls! Don't get me wrong, I can find nice childrens clothes for both of my kids, but the good boy stuff is few and far between. My biggest complaint with boys clothing is that everything is dark and dreary, camouflage or sports themed, or plastered with tacky illustrations and television and movie characters. Is it so wrong to want to dress your little boy is nice, sweet little boy apparel?

Now girls clothes on the other hand... a walk in the park! Last week alone I was able to find my daughter a pair of metallic silver jeans, dark blue denim jeans with silver sparkles all over them, and some great tights in the baby clothes section at Babies 'r Us.

Where do you shop for clothing for your children? I know that Gymboree and The Children's Place are often recommended, but there have to be some other nice stores as well! I love Carters clothing, but sadly their sizes don't go beyond babies!
