Kristen of the wonder blogging duo Manic Mommies (be sure to check out their Podcasts) sent me a Design-her Gals e-card for Mother’s Day. You should check out the cool custom stationery you can make. It’s like virtual paper dolls for grown women. OK…that sounded somewhat freaky. You know what I mean all you Avatar creatin’ women. And Oprah has now discovered Designhergals, so you know they’re on the A list.
Colleen at The Delaney Diaries (who has a new Jimmy Buffett inspired template that I love) recently wrote about using Blogbinders to archive the first year of her blog into book form. It seems like a neat idea although her review was somewhat mixed.
Fast Company magazine has a cool slide show on the Toys of Summer for the geeky/tech-minded.
I’ve been thinking that at some point I need to catch up on my digital scrapbooking. I ran across this beautiful kit which is a charity fundraiser for photographer and mom Laura Vanderbeek who has been battling Hodgkins Lymphoma.
Horchow has Ralph Lauren towels on sale for $9.99, including monogram! Whenever I see Ralph Lauren towels at TJ Maxx I try to buy at least one, since they are the best towels I have ever used. We had them on our wedding registry and 9 years later they are still holding up great. When you have company you can put the WalMart and Target towels away and set out Ralph’s and somehow look classier despite all the tub critters and the baby potty that are permanent fixtures in your bathroom.
And, did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? I did not, although I’ve been celebrating every night by eating way too much ice cream. MaggieMoo’s is giving away their Twizzlers ice cream next Saturday, July 22. I’ve never been to MaggieMoo’s so this seems like the perfect excuse to take the girls on a “field trip.”
Hope everyone is having a great Saturday. I am still feeling under the weather, but I hope to do something fun with the girls this afternoon while the hubby is working. (Maybe a trip to
the library Tarjay since it is so hot?)
