amy's got a case of the gimmes...


This morning, after I poured my coffee and sat down to chat with Rich, I picked up the Boden catalog. Starting with the very first page, I barraged Rich with "look at this!" and "this is soooo me!" and "I have to have this!" and again "look at this...look at this!...Oh! Look at this!" He almost choked on his vitamin as I pleaded for him to look instead of swallowing his water.

I love so many things in this catalog. It is brimming with unique styles and fun colors. I think I will start a little piggy bank-style savings plan so that I can cure this case of gimmes that has gripped me this morning.

In the meantime, I thought I would answer some of the probing questions that make up the model profiles in the catalog...

Perfect pick me up: a country ride with the top down (the car's, not mine)
Desert island treat: craft supplies, and lots of them
Never leave home without: hair product
What are you saving up for: funny you should ask...see above picture
Heels or flats: mostly heels
How do you relax: I make things
What's your best travel advice: don't sweat it...if you forget something you can buy it when you get there
Favourite smell: new baby smell
Best hangover cure: lots of water before you go to sleep and Goody's headache powder when you wake up

Too cute! I'm trying to see a close-up of that top in the center, but can't find it. What have you done to me?!

Oh, I love Boden!

Last winter I saved up and bought the prettiest pink tweed pants. I feel all sorts of swanky in them.

We got the mini-boden catalog in this week and I love all of the little clothes...luckily, there are many of them that I can emulate with our own funny appliques for the kids

No such luck with the big girl Boden! Sigh.
