Weekending

by , posted on January 16th, 2012 in Features




I have so much I want to say about this weekend, today and well everything. But my head is all swirly gearing up for my trip in a couple days.

I will tell you this weekend’s highlights included an impromptu magic show for the kids (they’ve already decided the tricks should, nay, NEED to be a Classic Play feature—stay tuned), couch date night: martinis and Page One, procurement of a 3D doodle kit and the kids offering fashion advice for Alt:

“Well, what about this for the winter wonderland white party?”
“That’s perfect!”
“That’s perfect,” pauses, “but you need some leggings.”

In fairness, the dress is rather short so the kid had a point.

Since I doubt I’ll post on Friday, I thought I’d start the week with a post from the end of the week. Oh yeah, that’s right people! I’m doing it—breaking the rules and going 88 mph. So without further ado, here are some links I loved FROM THE FUTURE!:

I love my fellow Baltimoreans

No wonder I couldn’t put two thoughts together those first three years—there was no escape

Peggy is the coolest!

This bit of amazingness deserves it’s own post, yes? Must work on it

Love these illustrations! Aspirational mental note: make plans to visit each one

Fantastic idea! Also, diggin’ the redesign

    I just read about it! lol. Love the cover. I’ve got a whole wish list of ppl I want to pick their brains and snoop on their lives. lol. How about you? I’ve got 1 kid and I’m falling to pcs sometimes on how to do it all. You have 2. And a company. Plus a blog. It boggles my mind.
    ps. Thanks for the compliment on the banner. : ) I had fun with it.

    I think everyone falls to pieces. Some of us are just better at shoving those bits under the rug. But I will say, I really wish I did SO MUCH MORE with the company than I do. I have a mega awesome plan for 2012 but it requires funding. So I should be spending my time looking for funding, but alas, I am not. So basically I do it all by not doing it all.

    And as far as the kids go, well, that takes a village. I don’t know what I’d do without my little tight knit community. Also, it helps that I don’t have to get dressed until the bus comes at 3:30 in the afternoon. ; )

    I don’t know how anyone with little kids does it. I mean I did, but it was all a blur.
