Watch This Right Now

It feels like the only thing I ever do here is talk about things. You know that Elanor Roosevelt quote,

"Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people."

Can we add that small minds also discuss things?  I'm a little small minded these days but I swear it's because I've found some awesome stuff lately.  Like this.

Which Claire will be receiving as soon as it is available.

And in other "thing" news I just found out what I'm giving my whole  family for Christmas.  The Sweater Boys Calendar of last year was not quite the hit I expected.  I'm still going to order this years because seriously.....

Really.  Seriously?  How could this not be the best present you have ever received?

Greatest. Calendar. Ever. And I will be keeping it for myself.

my family will all be getting the best child-entertainment system Pinterest has given me to date.  I'll post a tutorial as soon as I send out a load of them to our long distance friends because I'm pretty sure we are going to need testimonials and pictures to convince you all that you should give them to your whole family too.  I will just tell you that there are only 4 ingredients.

1. Popsicle sticks
2. Rubber Bands
3. The tops of milk jugs
4. Pom Poms

I myself was entertained for probably 45 minutes this afternoon.


  1. I also saw the Goldie Blox thing today! So cool!

  2. Goldie Blox made me tear up. SO excited. (And we miss you! Can you send me your address?)
