This week’s roundup of interesting pins and ideas from around the web . . .
Happy weekend, folks!
Secret Reading Nook: I’m inspired by this French mom who turned an old cupboard into a fun reading nook for her son. We’re short on space in our loft condo, so I’m always looking for creative ideas such as this that will give the little one a special place to let his imagination run wild!
Feed Me! A Cookie Monster cake?? This reminds me a of a mini Cookie Monster cupcake I once had at Adam’s Cupcakes in Lincoln Park before they closed for good a few years ago. Wouldn’t this be the funniest cake for a kid’s birthday party?
200 Toddler Activities: Now that Little G is a full-fledged toddler (he had a WILD playdate yesterday), I’m constantly on the search for things to do with him, to keep him entertained so Momma can work. It’s a whole different ballgame when they’re no longer the lumpy, little baby they once were. I mean, they run now, sheesh!!
Sequined Wedding Gown: The. Most. Glam. Wedding. Gown. Ever. Brides-to-be, take note of this tulle-draped sequined beauty. I wouldn’t mind photographing you in this stunning, old Hollywood glamour-meets-vintage elegance number that will have your lover seeing stars.
Chicken Stir-Fry Wraps: My goal this new year is to learn a new recipe from my mom every week, or as often as I can. While there’s not always time to visit and to play in her kitchen, I do find myself salivating for Asian comfort food, and as a result, am scouring Pinterest for delicious ideas like this chicken stir-fry wrap recipe.
Valentine’s Squeeze Bottle Pancake Art: Exactly what is “pancake art”? Sounds a bit hippy crunchy granola, and though this may be geared for yesterday’s Valentine’s Day breakfast in bed, I would certainly welcome this any day of the week in my book! (Are you reading this, Giant???)
