It’s the weekend! Hooray! And a holiday weekend to boot. Trent and I are headed off on our first trip together sans children in six years. No, I am not kidding. We are going to one of my favorite places in the world, New York City! I am so excited, although lately it has seemed like the universe doesn’t want me to go. This week alone we’ve had one case of extremely contagious hand, foot and mouth disease, one power outage, one babysitter who cancelled, and one trip to urgent care. OK, universe, I get it! But I will not accept it. NYC, here I come!!!
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday. Here are some links to keep you company, followed by some of this week’s Instagram pics (you can follow me over there at crazy_bananas):
DIY cake toppers made out of pipe cleaners…this is about as crafty as I can handle right now, and I think they’d be pretty perfect for Lu’s birthday (which is in a week omigod!).
Maggie’s article on 5 Ways to Discover New Music is perfect for anyone who tends to veer off the mainstream path (other than the occasional catchy pop song or B. Spears of course).
Speaking of good new music, these two 14-year-old Kansas City girls covered Foster the People’s Helena Beat and just blew my mind. I want them to come babysit for my kids so they can learn how to be awesome. (via Afentra)
