1. A Tale of Two Cornmeals

2. A Brief History of Evil Fingertenting

3. That’s hilarious.

4. Everything about this company is amazing. Especially the video. (Dan made the point that it would be crazy NOT to buy those unicorn pants).

5. I love a good running skirt. Who cares what women run in? As long as they’re happy worry about your own damn self, SELF.

6. This week one of my students said “In the olden days, the eighties” which made me feel as old as the wind. Have I grown up, finally?

7. Important lessons.

8. I’ve been thinking of getting into triathalons/open water swim training, and I could see this being a real asset.

9. How magical are these Mary Blair inspiration paintings?

10. I don’t even know what to do without This American Life. Good thing it looks like it’ll survive without public radio.

Kale Apple Ginger Smoothie

smoothie 2

I’ve always said that this blog follows what we eat, week in and week out. And the truth is that lately, this is what I’ve been eating. It’s filling, tasty, and it hits the spot in a way that no other food is hitting the spot right now. So smoothies it is- bring on the kale, ginger, lemon, and apples.

1. Happy Pi(e) Day! Dive into our pie collection.

2. Speaking of pie, this one by the ever talented Emily looks fantastic.

3. Buttered eggs? Sold!

4. As someone who had her family planning choices publicly discussed by a group of 5 year olds (my favorite answer to the question “Why hasn’t Ms Elena had a baby yet?” was “maybe she doesn’t want to lose her job.” Thanks team.), this video made by teachers made me roll on the floor.

5. How many of these have you read? (I’ve read 70!)

6. In search of Puddles.

7. We eat a lot of pizza.

8. Beautifully intimate.

9. This girl is my hero.

10. Preach.
