Friday Link Fling – June 28th

Friday Link Fling – June 28th

This app, along with the others from its maker, looks super cute! I bet Clare will love them all. I love all of these daguerreotypes of women breastfeeding their babies. I imagine it was hard keeping those babes still for the prints! These look ridiculous. […]

Friday Link List

Friday Link List

Kevin and I have been pretty terrible about getting grown-up stuff done since Clare was born, but this site should help. I like checklists, even if they’re for boring things like living wills and powers of attorney! I’m sort of tentatively thinking of having Clare’s […]

Spring jacket lust

October Bluum Box

October Bluum Box

I first found out about Bluum boxes while wandering around watching mommy videos (yuck, I know, haha) on YouTube. I love getting my Birchbox every month; it’s like receiving a surprise Christmas present every month! Sometimes I even forget I’m signed up for it, until […]

Shoegasm

Shoegasm
