Here are some of our favorite links from around the web this week. We hope you like them too.

Oh Happy Day Easter Carrots


A sweet Easter treat that looks so easy to make, even us craft-phobics can make a bunch for our little bunnies.

Have you seen the first episode of The Kristen Chase Show? It’s smart, funny, and filled with great advice, especially if you have a less-than-perfect mother-in-law.

We are so moved by this mama’s words about raising children with special needs and her wish for a little more compassion for parents like her.

Before you do any spring cleaning, you must read this hilarious review of Heloise’s Housekeeping Hints. We are still amazed to learn that women used to iron underwear.

On April 22nd, host a Picnic for the Planet in honor of Earth Day. We also love all of these other earth-friendly ideas that can be adopted any day of the year.


We are big fans of Artterro’s Eco-Art kits
for their beautiful materials and their employing of people from
Goodwill Industries. Now, here’s a way to help support them as they grow
through their Kickstarter campaign (plus, you’ll get some cool art kits yourself!).


If you feel like a short-order cook at dinner, here are some ideas to help make family mealtime more pleasant, especially for you!


Check out these new easy-on Skip Hop wall decals that Kristen spotted. Cute.


Liz’s post about how to raise children with a healthy body image is such an important read; but don’t skip the comments: Amazing, insightful and heartbreaking.
