11 Times 'Girls' Really Nailed It

After five years of our enduring the impetuous behavior of Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna, the end of Girls has come. Frankly, I’m a little sad about it.

A few stores with good maternity sections are: Target, Gap, Loft and ASOS. Any other recommendations?

P.S. A pregnancy survival guide, and going from one to two kids.

Have a Great Weekend.

Have a Great Weekend

What are you up to this weekend? The boys are on spring break, so we are lucky enough to be in Austin visiting friends for a few days. It’s so gorgeous here, and so far we’ve had tacos for every meal. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

This song is on repeat at our house right now.

Should airports have circular runways? This was weirdly fascinating.

Seven things I wish I’d known before my divorce.”

I finally nabbed a copy of this funny book, and it makes my heart sing. I’d highly recommend it.

The most underrated place in each U.S. state. (Do you agree?)

Plus, two great reader comments:

Says Mel on traveling with kids: “My best tip is to travel with kids. The more they do it, they better they get at it.”

Says G. on first dates: “One of my favorite features is the Guardian’s Blind Date section. The newspaper sets up two strangers and sends them on a paid blind date, then publishes their responses to a quiz – it’s fun and fascinating, and the couples are super brave.”

Have a good one. xoxo
