Since my children are on snack break number fifteen of the day, I figured I slip over here to share a few things with all of you while they're stuffing their faces with cheese, grapes and nutella toast.
*If you sneak a peek at my top right sidebar, you'll see a new little button–I have been nominated over at Parents.com for Best All-Around Mom Blog. And I'm holding steady with my one vote that nominated me. Have a moment? Will you click on over and vote for me?
Or click on the button below:
*First of all, a question: Can someone please tell me what to do with my lovely lavender up there at the end of the season? Cut it back? Let it go? I generally go with the "do nothing" plan, but I love it and I'd love to see it thrive despite my ignorance.
I feel like it's been awhile since I've shared some good stuff from blogland. I've been a pinning fool lately. Are you on pinterest? (Make sure you let me know in the comments!). It's one of the most inspiring time-sucks on the internet.
*Mariah Bruehl has a great list of online learning resources and inspiration for children on her website–categories like nutrition, music, math, art, child-safe online searches, writing, organization…great, great lists.
*I think my kitchen could handle a Big Chill.
*Emma's been asking me to teach her how to "type for real". Dance Mat Typing might be just the thing.
*This feather bangle is beautiful and budget-friendly.
*I really need this Crumpler. Badly. Because as much as I love my KellyMoore bag, I'm not that fancy every day. Sometimes, I just need to throw my DSLR into my every day bag and know it won't get smashed among the diapers and bunny crackers.
*These pillow case cushions for kids are pure + simple genius.
*I had a plastic version of this in fifth grade. It was my most prized possession atop my school desk.
*We have serious ponytail holder issues in this house. As in we can never find any. This is an excellent idea.
*And for dessert? Make your own magic shell. Be still my heart (or stomach….)
