While trolling the internets, I came across a new (to me) etailer, Just Madras. The name says it all, really. I can't grab any pictures from their site, but check out the madras tennis raquet covers and the adorable Compo madras clutch. Love!

But my favorite discovery might be these place tiles:

Luckily, my fears were unfounded. It all went really well (and really quickly, which I think was the source of the success). It's a pediatric dental practice, so I guess they have plenty of experience with squirmy little boys. If you're on the Third Coast, I highly recommend Dr. Mary!
Now, do you think that TCP Baby needs a reward for his good behavior at the dentist? Like maybe a new pair of wellies??? ;)

I am so sad that we aren't going this year... did you see that there is a freaking Mashed Potato Bar??? Now that is something that I would be All About, especially after a few cocktails. It's a good time for a great cause. If you're on the Third Coast this weekend, put it on your calendar!

L.L. Bean's Classic Puddle Stompers - $24.50
Go to Design Her Gals for a mini-me of your own, to use online or on paper. I made "gals" that look like my mom and grandmother, too, to use for future gift-giving occasions. And definitely take a look at the work being done by the Gal to Gal Foundation. My dear friend's childhood friend was recently diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer, and it has reminded me that we really can't do enough to fight against this insidious disease. Every little bit can help.

And I'm not the only one who thinks so. I started eating Greek yogurt after I read French Women Don't Get Fat, and really loved it. Of course, the honey aspect of this one pretty much takes it out of the diet category. But that's okay, because it is so freaking delish, it's well worth it.
Now please excuse me while I get back to my breakfast with Hermes!
**ETA: I just found this at our regular grocery store, Jewel--for those of you on the Third Coast.

City-fit stretch chino sailor pant in flame from J.Crew. I love sailor pants for spring and summer, and the bright orange color seems so suited for warm weather. Alas, they are out of my size!This adorable nautical tote from Rita Wilcox. I love the rope handles!
A new pair of Bonanno's. Yes, I realize that I have
lots one or two pairs already. But I need a metallic pair of the palm beach classics (in pewter and gold, please). And maybe a pair of Emma classic monograms in Arbutus with Clementine whipstitch. How cute would that be? And Melissa Morris is running a discount all year long.
Also, I made Ladybug's Picnic's raw kale and avocado salad last night. Love it! I highly recommend adding black olives and artichoke hearts to it. Of course, I would recommend adding black olives and artichoke hearts to almost everything. But that's just me.

Of course, I had to try it on right away...

I might actually download some of the songs from iTunes. I'm such a sucker.
