Have a Wonderful Weekend.

Happy holidays! Are you heading anywhere this week? We’re leaving tomorrow for our annual trip to Palm Springs and Los Angeles. We debated whether we should go or not, since a cross-country trip with two little dudes sounded intimidating, but in the end, we figured we’d give it a go! I’m so excited to see our family. This year, Anton’s basically the same age as Toby when he had his first Christmas. And last year Anton was just a bump:)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and here are a few fun posts from around the web…

Beautiful nature photos.

Hibernation sweatshirt. Right on.

This snowy week, we watched almost all of Homeland season two—so addictive! This tumblr made me laugh.

Parents see their youngest children as smaller than they actually are.

Note to Santa: this is at the top of my wishlist.

A ballerina dancing at 39 weeks pregnant.

Santa school.

The Queen of England likes wearing blue.

Cute way to hang a wreath.

My friend Susan gave us this book and it’s awesome.

The movie Her has been getting amazing reviews. Are you going to see it?

Why you should bring olive oil to a dinner party.

Cool Brooklyn pennant. (You can get any city you’d like.)

Great stocking stuffer.

Wish us luck on the flight tomorrow with those two little stinks! And if you need them: 10 tips for traveling with a baby, and 10 ways to entertain a toddler on a plane.

Lots of love and safe travels! xoxo

  1. I love that you called your kid “stinks”. We call our two girls the little “stinkers” and my mother in law laughs but I know she thinks it’s weird. Glad I’m not the only one :) Good luck and safe travels over the holidays!

  3. I have to comment on the olive oil hostess gift thing… I love that! Just as they said, it’s not a gift that is expected to be used at the party but instead is something special for the hosts. But hopefully it doesn’t become too much of a thing since those bottles last!

  13. Happy Holidays!
    The article about how mothers see their youngest children is so interesting! I have a 3-year old and a 17-month old and it feels like our littlest is so much smaller and younger and more of a baby than our eldest was at this age. Our first started pre-school at 20 months old, a few weeks after the arrival of our second, and he felt so ready for it. I look at our second, who will be starting pre-school in 2 months at 19 months old and I can’t believe we’re going to send him off so early! Crazy. I guess I’ll change the way I see him as well in a few months when our third arrives…

    Twitter widgets for Blogger blogs and I used them myself on many of my
    blogs. But the widget I liked the most is Animated Flying Twitter Bird
    which attracts visitors to follow you on Twitter and share your content.

  17. I’m hoping to go see ‘her’ on Christmas eve with my main squeeze!

  18. Oof we just did the New Zealand to LA leg (12 hours) with a six month and 3.5 year old. It went great – got to watch half a movie before I fell asleep! Merry Christmas!

  20. I loved homeland season 1 and 2. Season 3, however, has been a huge disappointment. Also I’m dying to see “Her” but they’re not playing it anywhere near me. Hopefully I’ll get to see it when I’m in NYC next week!

  22. I love your tips for traveling with kids! I can never get enough tips for that. We live in Kenya, and taking two long-haul flights with a toddler to visit family can be murder!

  23. A hibernation sweater? That sounds so perfect for the recovery period from final exams! Can’t believe I have just one more semester left at Harvard, time flies!! Merry Christmas! It’s seriously the best time of the year :)

  24. The Day The Crayons Quit is one of our very favorite books! So glad that you enjoyed it too!!!
    Have a great Christmas.

  29. Great links, as always. I love the Vogue chart! I wish I had that framed on my wall in my living room!

  30. Enjoy your trip to sunny California!

  31. We are headed to Palm Springs tomorrow too! I call my daughter Stinkerbelle. It’s the feminine version of stinks.

  32. You’ve got this!
    We are headed from freezing cold Utah to sunny San Diego. yay!

  33. Thanks for the stocking stuffer idea! Hope your travels are smooth and stress free.

  34. I love Homeland, but advise you to not get too excited about Season 3, unless your favorite character is Dana! :(

  35. Good luck! You can do it :)

  36. Good luck on your travels with the little guys!

  39. Sounds fun, safe travels! I’m heading to Palm Springs for the first time in January. That’s the good news. The bad news is I’m doing the NY to LA flight solo with a 3 year old and an 18-month-old. Please tell me there’s lots of wine awaiting me in Palm Springs!
