Monday Morning Round-up 9.22.14

Happy Monday, people.  

When searching for a fun photo for my usual link round-up, I found this weird one of my kids at Franconia Sculpture Park this weekend.  Taken out of context, it's so bizarre it makes me laugh.  If these two ever form a prog-rock band in the future, I will insist that this be their first album cover.  

Here are some links:

Rush hour in the Netherlands This could be us someday, right?

It's Like They Know Us Funniest Tumblr I've laid eyes on in awhile.

When's The Last Time You Ate at McDonalds?  This is the weirdest post, written by a respected blogger, and sponsored by McDonald's.  See what you think.

25 Ways To Ask Your Kids How School Was because they won't tell you ANYTHING!

The Sentimentalist's Guide to Dealing with Childrens' School Papers (although I think the school could save a forest and just send everything electronically)

That's it.  Have a great day!

I Compared All The Nail Wraps So You Don't Have To

If you've read the title, you should already know what you're getting into, and you only get one warning.  I am going to spend a lot of time talking about nail art and there are no apologies.

Monday Morning Roundup 9.8.14

Happy Monday, Friends!  I'm sensing a bit of fall crispness in the air.  It makes me want to curl up in a sweater and watch When Harry Met Sally with a cup of cocoa.  Except then I'd be dripping with sweat.  It's not actually that cold out yet, and I'm counting on another 6 weeks of Fummer (Fall + Summer).  

School has started again.  Boo is in 1st Grade this year, and gets on the bus at an ungodly hour.  Since Punky and I are already awake, we've been using the morning hours to tackle housecleaning and errand-running.  It's a fact that the early bird catches the race car before all the other kids get to Home Depot.

Here are some inspiring, thought-provoking links.  I'm not just saying that.  Every one of these articles gave me hope that we still want to unplug and connect with other human beings in our technology-driven world.  I feel like my week is off to a fresh start after reading these.
