Cool Stuff I Like

 A little dose of Hawaiian beach to brighten up what's left of the winter around here......

Happy Start to March COOL STUFF today:

Andrew is going to create his own version of this cardboard castle for Julia.

Super cute craft letters from Land of Nod.

Yummy Books blog. Is this not the COOLEST? Books and food!

Candy Apple Crunch Jam.

Everyday Chocolate Cake. (I often feel like I need something like this every day. Have I posted this before?)

Indoor Hopscotch. (via Silly Eagle Books)

Julia just made this necklace on her 100th day of school!

Super cute. (Literally!)

Cool Book of the Week: ‘Leprechaun Tales’ by Yvonne Carroll. We’ve had this book for several years now but this year might the first time Julia will be able to fully appreciate it – there are six short stories in this book all about mischievous leprechauns and fairy rings that will trap a stray human who strays too close – I read it to her when she was 4 but the stories were a bit over her then.

Have fun pronouncing names like “Niamh”, “Eithne”, “Eoin” and “Sidhe”!

Leprechaun tales
Have a lovely weekend! We’re going to try and do. . .nothing.



  1. Ok- I just had the time to go though today's list. Here's my response. 1st I feel that super cute link was specifically for me. The boys and I just went though all 20 pages 'oh'ing and 'awe'ing all along. Yummy Book Blog... so great! I love it. Those craft letters... my post on next Wednesday = perfect for those. And that cardboard castle. Yes Please.

  2. oh and the family phote- so great... your list why it's a successful family photo, made me laugh!

  3. Oh that's so awesome Robyn! I haven't showed it to Julia YET b/c I know I'm going to have to set aside a good chunk o' time....Yes, it is indeed a star-aligning moment to get a decent family photo of us....:)

  4. You guys make such a cute family! :) I can relate to how hard it is to get a decent family photo. I've got two little nuts looking away, making faces, pulling cheesy smiles, etc... it's nearly impossible! Hope you're having a great weekend.

  5. Thank you so much, Julia! I love your blog, stop by again!

  6. My pleasure Cara! I'll be coming to see you again FOR SURE!
