Sweet Little Things . Week 7

Sweet Little Things . Week 7

Oh, this week.

It was good, people. Really good.

The perfect combination of friends and family, busy and quiet, and good reading.

What sweet little things struck my fancy during all that bliss?

Well, here’s just a few. Hope you noticed all the sweet little things that surrounded you, too.

Pellegrino. The Boy has been a seltzer drinker all his life. He loves the bubbly water. If you follow me on Facebook {you do, don’t you?}, you know whenever we head into Starbucks, he orders a Pellegrino.

He’s a 6-year-old.

That makes me giggle. Like the time when, at 3 years old, he told the waitress at our local 99 Restaurant that he’d like a club soda with lime.

He’s a retiree in a Transformers t-shirt, people.


Retro Illustrations. Flipping the calendar from February to March was a joy on many levels. 1. It means we’re closer to birds chirping and the scent of lilac coming through the screen door. Could happen any day now.

Right? Right?!

And 2. I got to enjoy a whole new scene by one of my favorites illustrators: Miroslav Sasek. I just love that retro vibe.

Space Kid Print for Compassion International. My friends over at CoupleJones are good people. And they do good things … like starting their Doing Something Good campaign, which proves that simple acts of generosity and kindness can have an amazing effect on the world.

You can do good, too. A simple little act like downloading their whimsical Space Kid Print for a piddly {that’s a word, right?} $8–with all proceeds going to Compassion International–will brighten up the space of a child you love while helping another.

Sweet and easy.


Kids’ toothpaste. On Wednesday night, I grabbed the tube of toothpaste that was on the bathroom vanity. I hadn’t realized that it was The Boy’s tube, but it was okay, because what followed was a birthday party in my mouth.

I’m telling you: if you’re feeling blue, brush your teeth with a kid’s toothpaste.

Total joy.


Who’s on First? On a recent Barnes and Noble outing, The Boy and I stumbled across this fantastic book. It’s based on Abbott and Costello’s {if you don’t know who they are, shame on you … Google them right now} shtick, and in my opinion, every young kiddo should own it. That’s why I bought a few for upcoming birthday parties.

Sorry, peeps, for spoiling it for you.

Now you know that if Matt’s on your kid’s guest list, this is what they’ll be getting.

Spring Issues. Yes, we’re having oh, maybe the 10th storm of the season, but look what came in the mail the other day!

It’s just around the corner folks … don’t despair!
