Let me tell you about Crate and Barrel.

First and foremost, I am extremely lucky to work ~2 miles away from the only store in the state.  More importantly, I only go in there when I have a registry gift to get.

You see, Crate and Barrel is a DANGEROUS place for a girl like me to be in.  Because if I have to buy something off of your registry, Lord knows I’ll find something while I’m there for myself.  While Marcus and I haven’t registered yet (for obvious seasonal reasons), we’re at the point where we really won’t be and shouldn’t be buying anything for our place in the next year.

Case in point: Last year when I was getting gifts for Brittany, I got the colorful Parker Mixing Bowls (because I saw them on her registry and they were SO fantastic!) and then just for kicks, I grabbed the mini-bowls as well.  For the record, my set is a brighter color than those pictured here.  But you get the idea.

This week, while I was standing in line to check-out with Carrie’s gift, these caught my eye.

And then suddenly, I was buying eight of them.

I think the official term for this is a “Mulligan.”

In all seriousness, I love appetizer plates, and small bowls.  They’re perfect for keeping portion sizes under control, and given that I don’t usually eat “traditional” meals, these are a much better fit for what I might pull out of the pantry.  At this point, the question should really be whether or not I go back to the store to make it a set of 12.
