What are you up to this weekend? We’re hanging out with my mom, and the big plan is for the boys to get Pez dispensers. (It’s the little things!) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…
Whoa! Is this the prettiest cruise ship of all time?
If you’re looking for a good rom com, I stumbled upon Set It Up on Netflix the other night and it was really enjoyable.
Rating vs. ranking. Why can’t everyone get A’s?
I would have LOVED these sparkles as a little girl.
Do or don’t: Clapping when the plane lands.
Brownies with cranberries, sign me up.
Mindy Kaling tries different ice creams.
One of the wisest parenting books I’ve ever read; I still think about it all the time.
Things you’ll never hear a three-year-old say.
A modern way to find peace = gardening video games.
Plus, two reader comments:
Says Jenny on a picky eater dinner hack: “We sometimes have rainbows for dinner, which my four-year-old loves and is a great way to a) not cook, b) clean out the odds and ends in the fridge and c) get her to eat something other than mac and cheese. We basically open the fridge, pick one thing of each color (e.g. red watermelon, orange cheddar, yellow corn, green cucumber, blue blueberries, and purple plums), slice everything and put it on a plate in roughly the shape a rainbow. Serve with a side of hummus and pita and you’ve got an easy meal that’s perfect in summer when it’s too hot to turn on the oven.”
Says Tara on what are your personal rituals: “I eat two cbd gummies and mow the grass with GUSTO. After, I have a Stella beer and sit in awe of my work. I am terrible at mowing the grass and each time at least two people each time ask if I need help because I’m mowing in zig-zags. THIS IS MY SELF CARE, I’M GOOD. Important to note my mower is gas and I have to get a running start. I have created so many new rituals post divorce. Walking my dog to the farmers market, ballet on Wednesday with my bff, church and churros on Sunday but we never went to church. Long baths with lavender bath salts and Anthropologie candles that I cannot afford.”
