Yesterday was The Gorilla's birthday, so we took a quick little trip up the coast to Santa Barbara for a night with friends and a little whale watching. I love celebrating this guy.
On the HH facebook page this week I told an embarrassing story about getting stuck in the fitting room while shopping and I also debuted a new haircut. The HH facebook page is a fun little spot. Join us!
For your weekend reading pleasure:
- Let's Stop Idealizing the Home-Cooked Family Dinner. Hmmm, not sure how I feel about this one. Seems like yet another twisted version of the real or unreal mommy wars, only meals seem to be more of a universally accepted standard than, say, wooden vs. plastic toys. Family meals are important to my family, because I make them so and because we have the resources to provide them. My parenting philosophy almost always falls under Do What Works For You. This article gave me something to think about, if only to decide my own value on the family mealtime.
- Somewhat related: All the Comments on Every Recipe Blog. Ha!
- A friend sent me a link to this little gadget. Could be handy!
Have I mentioned that we (finally!) start school next week? Hallelujah!
