Brahmin Tent Sale Yahooooo

This weekend is the Brahmin tent sale in Fairhaven. Have you ever owned a Brahmin bag? I've always felt a bit spoiled living right near the factory outlet. Every couple of years I've splurged. These are top quality bags...they're different from everything else you see hanging on the racks. I always check out the tent sale. I don't always leave with something, but I get to try on A LOT of bags. Let me know if you're looking for one, I'll take a peek.

Watching the Windsurfers

Ok, so we were promised 7o degrees a few days this week here in Southern Massachusetts...didn't happen until today! Wahoooooo...it's 77 degrees in the shade on our deck. I wish I had a time lapse option on my camera, because I'm watching leaves pop, and grass grow. Finally.

A few days ago, my daughter and I went down to the lighthouse at Ned's Point to watch the windsurfers and climb on the rocks. It was freezing, and we had to keep our hoods up on our sweatshirts it was so windy. The windsurfers are amazing...and must be pretty strong because the wind was beating the hell out of them.

Ok, the yard is calling me...rake, dig, rake, dig. But I look fashionable in my pink J Crew Bon Voyage tee shirt!

Old Navy and J Crew Combo (Hold the Fries)



Ok, this is my first attempt of IRL. The cardigan is Old Navy, the tee of course J Crew. I was inspired by Fabulous Florida Mommy, who has been combining Old Navy and J Crew on her blog. The necklace is vintage...a little alternative to the out of my price range J Crew pieces. I'll be showcasing some of my spring vintage pieces once they all arrive!

A Bit of Shopping in Hingham


We traveled to Hingham, Massachusetts yesterday to go to Derby Street Shoppes. I was very excited because they have a Crewcuts store. It was beautiful, and my five year old daughter especially loved the dressing room (the picture doesn't do it justice). We spent quite a while shopping at Crewcuts...purchasing a few items. Then we headed to J Crew for mom and dad...which was ok, nothing to brag about. I tried on a rolling ruffles in medium, needed a small or extra small-no luck there. Did some browsing...left without anything!

We headed off to Whole Foods to pick up fish oils for the kids. Nordic Naturals now offers a tangerine gummy variety! My kids did not do well with the squirt of the regular fish oil. They really are so good for you, and it's important to get a brand like Nordic Naturals that tests for things like PCB's. You don't want to give your kids contaminated anything!

I Love April Vacation.

April Vacation is finally here. My husband and I are both teachers, and believe me, we were ready for it. I can always tell when it's time for a school vacation. I'm so tired I want to go to bed at 8:00. My hair looks bad, my skin looks old (ok, so maybe I'm old). My school kids and my own two are irritable and cranky. I look at it as a time of revamping, refreshing, refueling. I'd say relaxing, but that is not the case. I actually look forward to doing yardwork. it's been a long snowy winter here in Massachusetts. Watching the daffodils blossom, the lilacs budding...incredible. Watching something eat a dozen new irises and a beautiful lily...not so incredible. We spend all day outside raking, digging, etc...it's still too early to plant. Frost is still a strong possibility. So we will have to be patient for a few more weeks.

This year I'm turning my veggie garden into a flower garden and we're making a HUGE veggie garden. I will post pictures as it all develops.

I'm also looking forward to a little rain...we'll head to Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham. I can't wait to pop into JCrew and eat lunch at Rustic Kitchen. It's great when you have a husband that loves to shop, and you have trained your kids to do the same!

So let's hope by Sunday night I look young(er), refreshed, and ready to conquer the final stretch!

Felix Ray Totes for Target


How cute are these? I saw the scallop shell/coral tote at the Dartmouth Target this weekend and I'm sorry I didn't pick it up. It is adorable, and the price makes it that much more appealing. It is also a great size, larger than a magazine. It would look great with all of your J. Crew spring metallics!

On another topic...does anyone remember when Banana Republic was first popular, and they had beautiful white linen shirts, khaki shorts, pants, and skirts....natural leather bags...very Out of Africa (my favorite movie). I miss that BR. I wish they'd bring back a vintage line. Does anyone else remember this?
