Hello, Friends! How are you? Have you had a good week? It feels really satisfying to be typing up this post today. I was so bummed to miss it last week — it’s for sure one of my favorite weekly rituals!

I’m typing today from Green River, Utah, where we slept last night. After I hit publish, we’ll get back on the road and head to Denver. We’re leaving our Denver schedule as open as we can because we’re not sure how long it will take us to deal with our storage unit, and arrange for our belongings to make their way to Oakland. But we hope to be back in California by the end of next week — and then get down to the business of unpacking and settling in.

While we get ready to get back on the road (feel free to follow along!), here are a few things I’ve wanted to share with you:

– Newlyweds will live for 90 days using only Bitcoin as currency.

– Is science, or religion, to blame for moral decline? (Trick question!)

– Love The Little House? Try The Little House in song. Thanks, Lissalou.

– Two posts I wrote for Cafémom — Would you put a swing in your child’s room? And one of the most charming nurseries I’ve seen in ages.

– Tossing and turning? Blame the moon.

Crocheted playground.

– Canary, a home security device that’s wireless and connects to a smart phone app so you can monitor your home from anywhere. (The video is great).

– My nephew (who is an adult) is changing his name. Outside of a new marriage, have you ever thought about changing yours?

– Chalkboard book covers.

– On my Babble column this week — 18 Rainy Day Activities to help you fight summer boredom. And lots of smart ideas for a Wild West themed party.

– I’m hosting a really good Facebook Giveaway this week for a new lingerie company called Dear Kate. On your period? Post baby bladder? Dear Kate offers leak-proof (but still sexy!) underthings.

I hope you have a marvelous weekend. I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I miss you already!


P.S. — Driving through the desert landscape has me thinking about some of the Olive Us episodes we filmed last summer — especially Kish and Ghost Town.
