The weekends fly by these days. I love the idea of the 4/10 work week, where you work 10 hours a day, four days a week. Then you get a three-day weekend every week! Seriously, can the entire country just switch to this? Don’t think about logistics, let’s just agree that it would be perfect and make it happen.
Around The ‘Net
~Will Forte Can’t Stop (and He Hopes That Doesn’t Bother Anyone) We watched the first episodes of his new show, The Last Man On Earth, and enjoyed them.
~‘Calvin and Hobbes’: America’s Most Profound Comic Strip My brother and I loved this strip when we were kids.
~For Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, The Sound of Music Was Never “So Long, Farewell” Julie Andrews forever.
~The Likely Cause of Addiction Has Been Discovered
~Prince’s junior high basketball photo proves he’s always been a player His hair gives me life.
~Vince Vaughn and Co-stars Pose for Idiotic Stock Photos You Can Have for Free I use stock photos often, so now I need to figure out how to work these into an article.
~3D printing delicious, living, edible snacks Weeeeird.
~Let’s Really Be Friends: A defense of online intimacy
~John Stamos visits ‘Full House’ home, fans don’t notice To be fair to the fans, he doesn’t have a mullet.
~Classes that go off the grid help students focus I definitely would have needed to be off the grid when I was a student (although I’d have loved to take notes on a laptop).
~If you’re looking for some fun spring reads, I have two friends with new books coming out. My friend Stefanie’s book, Gummy Bears Are Not Organic: And Other Opinions I Can’t Back Up With Facts comes out at the beginning of April, while my pal Jaime’s gorgeous new book Pretty Prudent Home: Your Ultimate Guide to Creating a Beautiful Family Home hits shelves at the end of the month. Both books are available for pre-order and I highly recommend both of them! All of Stefanie’s books are hilarious, and this one is no different. Jaime’s book is jammed with amazing ideas that actually work with a family. It’s going to help me in my quest to decorate this house!
~My friend Victoria pointed me to a cute Kickstarter campaign that is perfect for both of my kids. It’s called Kids Imagination Furniture and it’s made of really sturdy cardboard (like, holds 500 pounds sturdy) that the kids get to decorate themselves. This is perfect for my little artist Annabel and my little don’t-give-him-a-crayon-unsupervised-unless-you-want-him-to-draw-on-everything James. Hoping it funds because I need two of ’em!
~I am dreaming about spring and I’m sure all of you who are covered in snow are as well! My inbox is full of spring dresses and they’ve done a good job of capturing my attention. I bought this pretty dress (and it’s on sale) for an engagement party I’m going to next weekend. It’s so twirly and fun and super-flattering. I also tried on this dress and I should have taken a picture because LOLOLOL NO. I looked like I’d been attacked by fabric! I’m just too short for that style. I’ve also been thinking about these shoes since I saw them a week ago. I am a sucker for flats.
March for Babies
~It’s that time of year – I’m going to be mentioning the March for Babies every week! It’s so important to our family. Have you signed up to march with us in person or in spirit? It’s free to join and only takes a few minutes of your time! Thank you to everyone who has signed up and donated so far – you all are amazing! I still have a long way until I hit my goal of $5,500 this year so every little bit helps moms and babies.
Happy Sunday, everyone!

Hi Heather. I thought you might be interested to know that you were mentioned on my blog this week: http://lambaround.blogspot.com/2015/03/washi-tape-ideas.html
Heather, I am 5″9′ with really long legs and I would be drowning in fabric in that second dress too. I think even the model had issues with it. The one you got though, super cute!
I’m a SAHM but my husband works 4/10’s. It’s the. best. thing. ever. So much more can be accomplished around the house and with the family in general with his 3 day weekend. More companies should definitely do it.
I don’t know what kind of load they can carry, but we can already buy cardboard furniture (in New Zealand) – https://www.mightyape.co.nz/Brands/Funny-Paper
I think it’s a Korean company.
Kat…none of those products can be shipped the the US…
I love the Cardboard Christmas trees!!
Love the dress you picked!! Super cute. And the dress you didn’t, yah, no comment
