The Yay Friday Round Up: Alt Edition

Two glorious things happened this week. First, a storm blew the funky air out of the Wasatch Front and then, THEN, the girl and I both managed to finally kick this cold bug to the curb. Those two developments called for bundling up and stretching our legs with a Tricycle ride.

Awwww....yeah.

Awwww....yeah.

I’ve been camped out at Alt Summit yesterday and today soaking in the design goodness. Laurie Smithwick blew my mind with her take on how social media is changing the design world. (Don’t worry, we got it on video. Come to evo ’11 and you can see it!)

The very sweet Amy Turn Sharp of Little Alouette took one look at my massively pregnant belly and gifted my new babe a Harper the Hippo Rattle. I love it!

I also got to meet the very charming husband and wife team behind Blue Lily Photography.

Here are a few things around the web that I wanted to share....

DIY Felt Valentine Envelopes from The Crafting Chicks (I might manage to pull this off, if an actual Crafting Chick helps me.)

I’m still finding 2010 photo posts that I love. This one from House on Hill Road captures real life. I want to capture more images like this in 2011.

Love these lunchbox ideas over at Simple Bites. (Great for whipping up at home lunches too.)

No, we’re not done talking about Tiger Mom yet.

Nice follow up from NatTheFatRat to the Salon article, Why I Can’t Stop Reading Mormon Housewife Blogs.

Have a great weekend!

This morning I woke up with the overwhelming urge to purge. Someone warn my local thrift store....I’m about to bury them in Gap denim and khakis, circa 2001.

The Yay Friday Round Up: DANG It’s Cold Edition

Keeping close to home makes the kiddo super creative. An Easter bucket on your head? Instant helmet and alter-ego, “Motorcycle Girl”. Here's a few things I found online this week when we weren't playing pretend.

Oh, look at those happy kids!
