14 Cool Things You Need to Click On Today

Sunset view from our office window 
I'm officially sick of the snow. I had a cute picture of my daughter walking through an icy park that I thought about posting above, but I kind of can't look at the white stuff anymore. So we're going with a sunset. And I'm going to pretend that it's setting over California, instead of frigid Manhattan.

Are you doing anything fun this weekend? My parents will be in town (yay!), so looking forward to having the grandparents spend LOTS of quality time with the kids. :)

Here are a few links I've loved over the past few days. Enjoy! (But first: Have you entered my giveaway??)

Another reason that it seriously needs to be spring like now? So that I can wear this frothy, girly, gorgeous dress.

• Loving this cool, comfy alternative to a leather moto jacket. (Plus it's under $90!)

• Wow. This is an unbelievable story about what happens when one woman contacts her (unimaginably cruel) online troll. (The NPR podcast about it is amazing and worth a listen, too.)

• Tea Collection makes some of my very favorite clothes for kids, and I just love their new swimwear. I just bought my daughter this tankini top, this ruffled bottom, and this great, long-sleeve rash guard to wear on top when the sun is blazing."

• When will be stop punishing working women for having babies?" There are a lot of articles written about this subject, but this is one of the very best I've ever read.

• Why cats go nuts for cardboard boxes.

• And today in news to make you feel 100 years old: "Emma"--Ross and Rachel's baby on Friends--is now a teenager. (Actually, teenager plural--she was played by twins.)

• The problem with those "feminist" Superbowl ads.

• The letter in support of vaccination that Roald Dahl wrote after his daughter's death from measles is heartbreaking.

• Healthy vegetable dishes that are delicious (not boring) can be hard to find. But this Buffalo cauliflower sounds pretty darn amazing.

And in case you missed it, this week I...

• Shared 45 lifestyle and DIY sites that are worth checking out.

• Showed the valentines my daughter will be giving out next week (plus that giveaway!)

• Admitted that I have major interior design issues.

• Lusted after these 10 things.

Have a great weekend!
