Happy Weekend! We are just finishing up a week of Spring Break during which we did…..nothing in particular! My kids were so happy just to have a break from their normal schedule, and to be able to PLAY all day! I *might* try to muster up the motivation to go to Ikea (because let’s face it–going to Ikea is an EVENT) to get a few things for our new LWSL office, but other than that, I’ve got nothing planned besides getting caught up on some reading. What are you up to this weekend?

Speaking of good reads, if you haven’t checked out my friend Michele Cushatt’s book Undone, which came out on Mondayit is seriously a must read. You can read a sample of the book here.

But now on to the good stuff! Here is what I loved this week:
