We took a trip into downtown Philadelphia over the weekend and I thought this was a fitting picture to share when saying Happy Memorial Day!  Here I am with the boys at the Liberty Bell.

This morning at the bus stop, I was complaining to my neighbor about how I couldn't find any decent-looking or priced rash guards for Nate, who wears a size 8 now.  All my normal haunts stopped after a 5T.  She suggested (duh!) so I came home and was happy to find exactly what I was looking for.  (Thanks Cindy!) I ordered several … [Read more...]

Oh Dear God, I am hooked.  I'm almost sorry that I saw a friend tweeting about this because I am so addicted since finding Words with Friends. I can't get enough.  It's basically Scrabble with only slight variations to the classic game. You can sync it up to Facebook and Twitter and find which of your friends are playing it.
