PLACES TO VISIT
Goodstuff Eatery
After I'd been living on Capitol Hill a while, I noticed this fun looking new restaurant, Goodstuff Eatery, and was amused by the name....and then I read about it in all the local papers-- it is run by a local celeb chef, Spike Mendelsohn [famous from Top Chef, one of my fave reality shows], and ...

PLACES TO VISIT
Patisserie Poupon
Having lived in Paris for 7 years, I got used to having croissants for breakfast-- weekends only, really, as who can eat them every day without gaining a ton of weight?  Anyway, that was one of the big things our family missed when we moved to DC -- especially my 4-year-old!  So I was thrilled ...

BABY
Giggle
I'd read about trendy kid's shop Giggle a few times (most notably in Cookie magazine), and finally had the chance to check it out this week.  I have to say, it lives up to its expectations of being a well-edited, fun, bright kid's shop.  The boutique stocks all the trendy brands, with a slant towards ...

(The hall suffered from a big fire a few years back, and the market is ...

BABY
Consigning for a cause
I adore shopping for my kids—and now that I have two girls, I feel a little less guilty about buying for my older one, knowing that later on the baby might wear it again.   But at some point, you have to start getting rid of stuff!  I know my girls have things that they have ...

CRAFTS AND DIY
Spring has sprung
Spring has finally sprung here in DC, and although it is still a bit chilly, buds and blooms are popping up everywhere.  To celebrate, we were invited to a First Day of Spring party last month.  My daughter insisted on taking a gift (although I explained it wasn’t a birthday party!) to the hostess, and ...
