Weekend Links

Happy weekend! Hank and I will be enjoying a little staycation (heck yes for discounted group rates at the Palomar), and I can't wait to put on a bikini and get some sun. With SPF 5,000 of course. ;)

I hope you have the most wonderful weekend!


First of all, I wanted to tell you guys about the coolest store- Mortimer Snodgrass! They're actually a brick and mortar store in Canada, but also have an online shop and carry some of the most unique, neatest items for kiddos (and adults). Right now they are offering Sometimes Sweet readers 20% off their entire purchase until the end of May with code snodsometimessweet. They sent us this, one of these and a couple of other items, and we LOVE them all (especially that bath spout!). Mortimer Snodgrass also has a wide array of awesome books that are totally worth a peek. And with 20% off even more worth it! On a side note, when our package arrived I told Henry where it was from, and he just about died from a giggle fit over the name for a good 5 minutes. Too funny!

Secondly, Boon sent us a bunch of their new cups to try out, and we ended up really liking them. Henry is pretty partial to his Nalgene "blue cup," but he easily switched over the new ones no problems. I love how easy they are to clean and fill, and Henry likes the bright colors. There are three different types, for all stages of sippy-cupping, and I'm excited to put the ones geared towards younger ones away for Charlie. They are all available at your local Target, so check 'em out. We love them.

And now, some regular old links! ;)

This was my favorite post on the internet this week.

I adore these photos: one and two.

Have you stopped by Farewell Trading yet? It's my friend Mia's new shop and it's awesome. If you love old stuff, you'll love FT.

THE coolest Etsy find, ever. I randomly stumbled upon these dolls and I am in love. The Abe Lincoln one is all sorts of amazing.

A great list of web fonts.

Thank you for featuring us, Babble!

Need a baby gift? Here's a goldmine of my favorite things, in my favorite shop.

And more Etsy: the cutest cake toppers, this pin (reminds me of my Pi Phi pin!), this plush camera, and this great sign.

American Girl Dolls Really Need to Remember Their Roots. Amazing!

How cute is this dress?

A great website all about supporting local farmers.

"I'm sick of apologizing for my c-section."

  3. That post by We Seek Joy blew me away by how beautiful it was. Such incredibly amazing advice.

  4. Oh I love Leo. That was too funny. Have a great weekend, Dani!

  5. Thank you for the link about Leo (aka my first husband).
    And I don't have kids but I found the "I'm sick of apologizing for my C-Section" article VERY interesting.

  6. Thank you so much for another feature, mama!! I hope you have the best staycation ever! Steven & I are off on our babymoon this weekend too :)

  7. I always LOVE your links--I don't know how you scope out such great ones every week. (Always wishing I had more time to blog-hop.:)) Hope your stay-cation was great. Those are the best.

  8. Pretty! This was a really wonderful post. Thanks for supplying this information.

  9. Yip, on Bloglovin! It's awesome!

  10. I always love your links! I especially loved the one about csections. I had an emergency csection with my first and will most likely have planned csections with my future babies. It always bugs me so much that people feel the need to question my judgement. Several of my friends are natural birth advocates and I think that the natural birth movement is wonderful but I don't like the way that they sometimes vilify women who've had csections.

  11. Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you penning this article and also the
    rest of the website is also really good.
