Obviously, I did not make or photograph this cake.  I mean, this photo literally makes me want to jump through my computer screen into the cake.  As evidenced by yesterdays post, my food doesn't exactly conjure up the same feelings.  So, I'll save your eyes for today and send you to a professional.  you're welcome.  Her entire blog is incredible.  my name is yeh- funfetti cake

I happened upon this blog the other day.  Any mom is awesome in my eyes, but a mother to 4 little boys, well, she may as well be a super hero.  With 4 kids, I would need some extra arms and the ability to be invisible (or disappear), and  clean the house/baby/self with the snap of a finger.  She also keeps it real, so I know I'm reading about a real mom and not an alien mom.

I stumbled upon this article the other day.  It made me really re-think where I want Octavian going to school.  

Fall is right around the corner and I am in desperate need of clothes.  The last time I purchased new clothing was over two years ago.  It's time...

If I get new clothes, so does Octavian.  Although, let's be honest, he's the only one that's received anything new in this house since he was conceived.  Shopping for him is so much more fun than shopping with my post-baby body.

He'll take this this and this

I mean, c'mon.  Find more kid fashion here

I am interested to see if this ever develops.  Neat idea and much more practical than continuing to waste resources importing food.

And, since we're on the subject of working toward preserving our environment (pretty important, I'd say), this really excites me.  

This blog reminded me that I have less than two months to figure out Octavian's first birthday party.  I wonder if I could just hire her?  She'll fly out from Norway, right? for free? No big deal.

but seriously, I have less than two months.  

This site.  I am obsessed with every single part of it.

I'm thinking I need to make this sesame chicken this week.  I reminds me of a healthier version of orange chicken, minus the orange.  Although, why not add some orange to it?

This site!!! I could spend my entire day reading from just this one website.  If you're a big travel fan, you might like it too.  For example, the 15 most expensive hotels in the world.  Who wants to take me to #10?

And, just in case you haven't seen this. #15 blew.my.mind.

Oh, Spain, one day I will see you again.  Care to torture the wanderlust in you?  I can help- here

This site must have read my mind.  I was just talking about how much a needed a beach day.  If only I didn't have to plan 3 days in advance to go on a little 3 hour road trip with a 10 month old.

Well, that's it folks.  Hope you have a happy weekend!
