Cool Stuff I Like

April 18, 2014

It's almost Easter!! And it's supposed to rain for the next 5 days straight. We've been lucky with our Easters, I think it hasn't actually rained on Easter since Julia was born. But I think our luck is going to run out this year, we'll see. It's supposed to be rainy most of this wkend, and it's been pouring for the past several days. BUT, it didn't rain earlier in the week when we went to go see a local tulip festival, I'll have pix for you next week. I think these tulips you see up here are called 'Roman Empire'. Uh, that's a very imposing name for a tulip!


Hey friends? HOW did I not know there were Hello Kitty Mad Libs??

Fairy Meadow?? Sign me up. (read about it here)

I need a glue gun.

Rhubarb coffee cake!

5 Natural Air Fresheners for Spring.

I read this book while sitting in a bookstore once, in one sitting.

Kiddo bedroom shoots. Totally obsessed! Want to do more of these!

Smart snack shopping.

Giant Easter Egg coloring page printable.

Awesome place. Wowza/Sigh. Reminds me of the house tours in my sadly departed Cookie magazine.

Origami Birds. Julia would love this!!


Cool Book of the Week: 'A Stick is an Excellent Thing' by Marilyn Singer and LeUyen Pham is a lovely ditty I saw on Pinterest. Doesn't it look enchanting? I love the idea that the poems celebrate universal games/activities that children play and engage in, like hopscotch and making mud pies. April is national poetry month and we should all be reading some poetry! Julia's class has been writing poems all of this month, Julia is way, WAY into it.

Have a lovely weekend! I'm making a lemon tart and getting together Eastery surprises for the girly. I'll show you next week. I have a lot to show you next week, I might have to blog everyday. GASP. Haven't done that in awhile....

  1. Oh yes it has, sister! She's older than Megan and one year when Miss M was not quite 2 it poured cats & dogs. So fun doing an egg hunt for three kids inside a 900 sqr foot house. We were just glad they were short & could be challenged simply by putting an egg on top of a table! ;) Have a fantabulous weekend!!!!!!

    1. good golly why do i not recall this year o' rain? it all runs together in my mind.....our neighborhood does a hunt and then sometimes our cousins do a hunt and often they are not on Easter day proper. I have a funny pic of J at about age 1.5 just holding an egg. At that age, just finding an egg and holding it was fabulous! :)

  2. We have A Stick is an Excellent Thing checked out right now! I'm planning on doing a National Poetry Month post about it next week. I would love a fairy meadow, but I need a bigger yard... Love the origami birds! If I Stay looks interesting, and I love Chloe Moretz. I'm going shopping for Easter basket stuff soon and Mad Libs were already on our list! I'll keep my eyes peeled for Hello Kitty! Cool crowns! My girls are outgrowing their dress-up days. I'm not ready!!!!
