What are you up to this weekend? We are taking the boys out for Ethiopian food in our neighborhood. (Alex took them last month, and they loved it.) How delicious is the spongey injera bread? Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

Says Michelle on soup groups: “Am I the only one who loves winter? I feel like I survive summer. But man, what else makes you feel more awake (more alive?) than a bite of cold air?
