LOL: Lots of Links - Volume 1


Gotcha,  you saw LOL and thought "laughing out loud." Psych! 

When I first saw the LOL acronym I totally thought it meant lots of love. It was a brief misunderstanding and was quickly identified (probably by my loving husband). But since I'm in the game of taking the wrong meaning of acronyms, I'm going ahead and making my own meaning for LOL. Yup, lots of links. 

I am a link hoarder, which is probably why I love Pinterest. Pinterest speaks to me. Another quirk of mine, I will leave a link up as a page on Safari on my iPhone until I get a chance to read it. Anyway, I figured you might be curious in some of the more intersting links I come across. Thus the creation of LOL.  

Should we make our young toddlers apologize?

Have you seen the movie preview for Tully? Will it be good? Too true for comfort? It's peaked my interested, but I'll see what reviews say. I probably won't get to the theater, ha, those days are long gone.'s night out anyone?

I just ordered Oh Crap! Potty Training the other day. Now, to find the time to read it. I think we're getting close to starting. Caleb came into the kitchen stark naked then took me to the bathroom to show he had peed in his potty. I couldn't help but laugh. 

 “You don’t have to eat it.” This got me thinking, should I try it with Caleb?

I have been kindly reminding my husband that Mother's Day is coming up soon. What do you want? I would love some personalized jewelry

This looks like it could be a handy site for traveling with kids. I think her Flying with Kids tips seems pretty solid. 

Go Kate!

This is the first I've heard of it, but Target apparently has a car seat trade-in event. People seem pretty excited about it. It goes from April 22 through May 5. You just bring any unwanted car seats to your local Target store and receive a coupon for 20% off a new car seat, booster seat, car seat base, travel system or stroller from our stores or full online assortment. Are you going to do it?

I am pretty sure Caleb will want to go on this train excursion over in Port Orchard. Spring day trip for the Brown family! 

Fried Rice is for dinner tonight.

If I have time and energy, I want to make these this week. I just got a big ole carton of strawberries from Costco. 

I love Trader Joe's, but the closest one is like 15 minutes away. The horror! Here's a list of The Best Trader Joe's Products Of All Time (click show all rather than clicking on each slide). I don't know if I agree with the 125 products they chose. I do like they have Unexpected Cheddar Cheese, but there are so many others not listed! I will have to share my list of favorites with you sometime. 

Okay, I should probably get off the Internet and get some stuff done. Like the laundry; it's sitting in the dryer for a day now and needs to be folded (and yes, it probably already has wrinkles). 

And I leave you with this...
