Why Breastfeeding is an Environmental Issue by Cheris Udell

I never thought about it this way. Now when people give me a funny look because I nursed my girl until she was 14 months, I have another reason.

I love what Carrie says about reading as an adult. Now I’ll be breaking out my old favorite “A River Runs Through It” to read it with my older and wiser perspective.

Megan’s Get Out of Debt Plan

Money and budgets baffle me. This is the best explanation I’ve read to date.

Paying Tribute to Your Mom on Mother’s Day by Camille Langston

A great Mother’s Day gift idea. (Or Father’s Day...if you’re one of those over achievers that already has mom’s gift wrapped.)

Fabulous Guacamole Dip from Mina Frannea

Get. In. My. Belly.

Demand all the fitness you want with ExerciseTV from Emily Hill

Cool! (Except after reading this, I’m afraid of my treadmill crapping out. I didn’t know they could die!)

Diamond of Darkhold Book Club by Raejean Roberts

I never thought of doing a family book club. My wheels are turning now...

Crochet Your Way Out Of Boredom from Erin Collard

Our husbands would TOTALLY get along...

Darth Vader was Lame and Other Lessons from the Birthday Party from Polly Harrison

Such good info and prep for parents of elementary school-aged kids.

A $1 off Dreyer’s Dibs? Sign me up! (Loads of other coupons too.)

Birthday Blooms

Weekly Round Up

I’ve just returned from Costco with the most glorious dose of happy flowers. I’ve been known to splurge on a $9 bouquet every once in awhile, but since it’s my birthday this weekend, I thought I’d go crazy and blow twenty bucks. The results are delightful.
