Cool Stuff I Like

August 17, 2012

SO, how's things? I'm not freaking out about the impending change in seasons. Which is a first. I talk a lot about the weather, don't I? You know that idea about making polite conversation about the weather, if there's nothing else to talk about? I really would be into having that conversation. Like, on purpose. Not just as idle chit chat. Have I already written that same exact sentence in another post? I feel like my head is extra muddled lately. But speaking of things to talk about, it's too early to talk about Halloween right? I know in my heart that it is, but I'm excited about Halloween already.


Late summer, non-Halloweeny COOL STUFF:

Literary PJ's for kids! Good Night Moon pajamas and Guess How Much I Love You pajamas.

Did you know that Old Navy has an entire Hello Kitty section? How am I just discovering this?

Gasp, it's about that time. Kid-friendly lunches.

Speaking of lunch, check out these super cute Rilakkuma bento boxes!

We're still speaking of lunch -- want to see my Lovely Lunch Pinterest board? (yes you do)

Yeah, it happened. (check the pricing, it varies wildly -- the $19 listed here is closest to the $17 we paid)

Two Easy Summer Tarts. (these girls are so clever)

Carnival Cookies. Popcorn is involved.

Just LOOK at the twinkle light play cabinet in this room!!!!

There's just no end to my love for these people. Seriously.


Cool Book of the Week: Well, if you paid close attention to this post, and also this one...you won't be surprised to see that the book of the week is none other than the mega-dose of awesome we call the 'My Little Pony Storybook Collection'. Don't you love it?? Ok I have to tell you that Julia has had nothing but love for this book for the past two years and that love is still going strong. Eight stories about those ponies all being sweeter than the next one. I can't tell who is freaking who. But they're all super pastel and SWEET and your kiddos will just sigh over it. And make you read the one about the ponies going to the fair over and over.

My Little Pony: Storybook Collection
Have a lovely weekend! What's happening with you? Making any treats? Watching movies? Digging in the sand? Going BONKERS trying to get everything ready for back-to-school?

    1. So you feel my pain, I mean, SHARE MY JOY, when it's time to read stories from that book....;) -- It's actually pretty darn cute.

  2. Another great Cool Stuff post, Melissa!

    First of all, I love all of your lunchie stuff. Miss C. starts Kindergarten on Thursday and we've been gathering school supplies, uniform stuff and lunch supplies (I'm going to be putting up a blog post soon about the super cute bento boxes we ordered for her lunch). Last night I had a tearful meltdown... I'm going to miss having my sweetie around every day so much. I'm just not emotionally ready to have her gone all day, five days a week. Sheesh, I'm tearing up again just writing this! :(

    Okay, on a happier note... I had no idea Old Navy had a Hello Kitty section! Is that only online? And I looooove that twinkle light play cabinet! :)

    The Mister and I are off to (hopefully) buy a new car this weekend. (Well, it will be a lease.) Not exactly how I want to spend my weekend, but it must be done! There's no room in our Jetta for a third car seat and our new sweetie will be here soon enough!

    What about you? What do you have planned for the weekend?

    xoxo

    1. Oooooh, hang tough Mama! For me, the idea was worse than the actual experience. It's hard. I feel bummed about our summer time together ending but it's time b/c she's been an increasingly sassy little money the past 10 days -- I think she's ready for school to come back!

      I'm not sure if the HK stuff is online only -- the nearest Old Navy is far from us so I rarely go to an actual store!

      This wkend...cleaning the bathroom? Sounds epic, yes? We have a few household chores we need to get done. I'd love to get out to a saturday farmer's market, but I'm the only one who gets excited about farmer's markets :0

    2. I just came from Old Navy. They have smaller Hello Kitty stuff (toys, earbuds, lunch tins, etc.) lined up by the check-out counter as impulse items. I think Target has a much better selection of Hello Kitty clothes in the stores, though.

    3. I'm not in control of my impulses so I think I shouldn't go....:)

    4. Miss C. has been a sassy little monkey too! And I know it's because she's excited about starting school. She keeps checking over her backpack, lunch box and school supplies. I'm hoping some of that sass disappears after school starts! :)

  3. I am right there with you always checking on the weather. I think it totally annoys my husband that check weather.com at least ten times a day!!

    1. my husband likes to tell me the only other person he's seen be as obsessive about the weather as I am was his grandma. he has to turn off nature shows about x-treme weather b/c otherwise I'll keep watching and hyperventilating and worrying about Big Storms. When the film 'The Day After Tomorrow' comes on TV, I always watch it! And freak myself out. And then Andrew laughs.

    1. ha ha ha! Miss Jenny, that's a rave I want to attend. We're about to pull the plug on cable. J almost passed out with shock. But we told her that she'll be able to watch EVERY My Little Pony show EVER MADE on Netflix....

  7. That pony book looks like something my daughter would love! I like that it looks like it is the fat ponies. I'm not a fan of the new skinny ponies.
