It's Friday!

This is probably one of the best photo blogs I've stumbled upon in years. From their website: "You Are My Wild is a weekly portrait project that brings together 14 photographers to document how they see their children." I love the honesty of these pictures.  Also this reminded me just how much time kids spend in their underwear and little else.  I love it.
If you need a superb chocolate chip cookie recipe, Mel's Kitchen Cafe has a winner. I've never pledged my allegiance to any one cookie, but when you need tasty, chewy (a must!), and attractive cookies that don't require softened butter (my achilles heel when it comes to baking), these are fabulous.

Your weekly internet ridiculousness here: A Cat Wearing a Shark Costume Chases a Duckling While Riding a Roomba Vacuum. Did these sorts of things even happen before Al Gore invented the internet?!?

Moment Junkie; another photo blog, but this one is "a blog devoted to showcasing the best in contemporary wedding photojournalism, with a focus on moments between people that are timeless, heartbreaking, hilarious, or all of the above."  A few favorites here, here, here, and here.

Have you been swept away by the force of Pinterest and found yourself with a sewing machine that you don't really know how to use? Melanie from The Crafty Cupboard is writing an "I Can Sew" series all through May, starting from the ground up with tools for beginners and getting to know your sewing machine. I consider myself a more seasoned seamstress but I have still benefited from her wisdom. You've probably also seen her chevron skirt tutorial floating around Pinterest.

An oldie but a goodie: Her Morning Elegance by Oren Lavie. It's the perfect early morning song for those quiet hours when the sun is still waking up. I'm also a sucker for stop motion anything.

And finally, this article: "I've Started Telling My Daughters I'm Beautiful." It impressed me deeply about how much women need to model positive attitudes about ourselves for our children. Right now I only have a baby boy, but you better believe he's going to grow up knowing his mom thinks she's pretty.
