I’m writing this in advance because this weekend I’m out of town, celebrating my cousin’s bachelorette party. Leah has been engaged since December 2012 so I really can’t believe that it’s time for her wedding festivities to start. I’m hosting her wedding shower in September and, of course, I’m already having a blast planning it. So excited for Leah and Ted!

Around The Net

~Love these quotes from some of my favorite famous ladies.

~A very interesting article on trophy-hunting lions and why the United States should add lions to the Endangered Species Act.

~This kickstarter project is so clever. Each kid has pulled keys off of my computer at some point. I really hope the project funds because I want to buy one!

~I have a post up on Babble where I discuss some of the ways we work with Annabel to overcome her fears.

Getting Organized

~My parents gave me a gift card to The Container Store for my birthday, and I’m going to use it to jumpstart my office/craft room organization. Right now the room is total chaos with fabric and random bits of business paperwork EVERYWHERE.  I think a few swing-arm pant hangers would be great to hang material on, stacking boxes would absolutely organize all my random papers, and I’d love a fold-down ironing board so I didn’t have the temptation to use my regular ironing board as another surface to stack stuff on!

Getting Support

~I’m one of those people who wears bras into the ground. Now that I’m over a year postpartum, as much as I love the bras I have (like my spanx bra, no back fat!) they aren’t cutting it anymore. My cup size has changed significantly (doooooown) so I need to invest in some new ones. I went to Nordstrom a couple days ago (because half-yearly sale!) and bought this soft cup bra…I really wasn’t sure about it because it doesn’t have underwire, but it’s surprisingly supportive. Still, I need some bra suggestions so throw ’em my way.

Coming Soon

~This longer Gone Girl trailer looks really good. And Neil Patrick Harris!

~And this Hunger Games: Mockingjay teaser…I CANNOT WAIT.


~I’m already getting Back To School emails. Can we make all of July school-free, please? As fun as back to school shopping will be, I just need one summer month where we don’t have to think about school!

BlogHer Bound

~At the end of the month, I’m co-hosting an official BlogHer party, the Sangria Sundown Soiree. The company hosts are Eppa Sangria, One2One Network, Soybu, Whole Foods & Whole Planet Foundation, and the blogger hosts are me, Heather Barmore, Morgan Shanahan, and Jenny Ingram. If you’ll be in San Jose on July 24th, you should come! You can RSVP here, and you can join me and my other co-hosts for a twitter party about it on Wednesday the 16th at 6pm PDT!

Happy Sunday, everyone!
