Now that the birthday festivities are complete, Ben Blair and I are trying to come up with something fun to do this weekend — something momentous to celebrate the big news. Any ideas? While we brainstorm, here are a few things I’ve been wanting to share:

-I want this image by Chelsea Fisher (above) in my kitchen.
-My favorite housewares in the world. I featured them at Cafémom.
CatalogLiving is hilarious. My favorite is Bon Voyage. (thanks, Danielle)
-Only 5 more people and the Eco-Me CliqueShop deal is on! Act fast, only 12 hours left.
-I’m kind of obsessed with SuperAdobe.
Gorgeous rings — they’re made of soap!
-A vintage Airstream Camper makeover.
Toddler portraits painted by the mother.
Nie Nie’s back to school feast.
What end of summer looks like.
-The cuteness! A 3 year old recites a Billy Collins poem. (thanks, Bridgette)

I write a daily post for Babble. Here are this week’s posts:
-this gift will be the hit of the baby shower
beaded pacifier clips
preppy lunch bags
-Woah. This portrait was embroidered!
-Who needs an iPad when you can have a MePad?

Have a great weekend! I’ll see you back here on Monday. I miss you already.
