Cool Stuff I Like

Hi friends! Hope those of you in the states had a fantastic 4th and are prepping for a fun weekend. Or maybe your weekend started on the 4th? For the next few days....wait for it....we might hit 80 degrees! I can't believe it! We're going to the beach! We're going to squirt watersquirters! We're going to buy a beach tent because my skin doesn't know how to deal with sun anymore! Andrew's been making tons of our favorite summer drink, iced green tea with mint leaves. (The mint came from our garden and I have to watch it like a hawk because it's spreading like crazy. I had to go yank a bunch out. My aunt told me if you plant it in the ground in a pot, the pot will contain the mint roots underground. Genius! But I didn't do that.)

COOL STUFF this week:

Paper flower balls for the crafty amongst you.

Fabulous cupcake and cake fish birthday cake!

Summer Party Recipes (via Whole Living)

OMG Chicken Parm.

The sweetest baby room I've seen in a long while.

I am SO IN LOVE with Dos Family. Obsessed really. (Also I want to be a Swedish children's talk show host in an alternate reality!)

Coolest cardboard castle. Even cuter then ours! ha ha

I'm not done with S'mores links. Nope. Here's bear s'mores!

Speaking of Dos Family, I really think this is the most brilliant idea ever. (the shoe thing.)

Cool Book of the Week: Julia and I both had a great time with 'Adopt A Glurb' by Elise Gravel. This nifty little comic-style book will tell you everything you need to know about the care and feeding of glurbs. They like to be tickled, they like to unroll toilet paper rolls and they smell stinky even when they're clean! Awesome right? Everyone needs a glurb!

  5. Happy wkend to you all! Robyn: yes you could. Happy to see we're all in agreement about the awesome nursery! And Dos Family, no joke, I am going to be them when I grow up. THAT HEADER. I'm so into it! Plus, they're Swedish and I have a strange obsession with all things swedish.

  6. The nursery is so sweet and I agree what a great book collection!!
