Pregnancy cravings? Yes. Yesterday it was Honey Nut Cheerios. I had to have ’em.
And then I ate two huge bowls full.
And then I regretted their honey nut goodness. Urg.
Boden. Boden. Boden Boden! First, Boden is a family name. We’re pondering its use as a first name for our second born. We’re pondering mildly.
But more importantly Boden. Yes, please. Bright. Modern with a nod to British (er, because it is?), a nod to mod, a nod to cheeky, a nod to tongue in cheek. Fabulous design and attention to detail. Great fabrics. They manage to make lovely bold prints without making me think of 1970’s furniture or housecoats.
When Mr. Pickle Pumpkin was little he received an outfit from Mini Boden. The pants are comfy and cute and reversible. The top was bright and funny. And I kept squeezing him into that outfit until he was busting out of it a la a mini Lou Ferrigno –> Hulk. I visit their site regularly and add the set of 5 bright, striped, long-sleeved onesies to my shopping cart. Then I don’t purchase them. But someday… someday I will. And Mr. Pickle Pumpkin HAS to have these too…
Disclaimer: no one at General Mills or Boden knows who I am. I just like their stuff, and that’s all there is to it.
