Some suggested links for your perusing pleasure…
Someecards – After sending out zillions of Christmas cards, I don’t have it in me to write hard copy notes to every single generous person who gifted or hosted us last month. Those persons that won’t go Emily Postal on me will be receiving a deliciously snarky e-thank you.
Loser Moms – Devra and Sarah are always inspiring, real and funny as hell. They’re also hosting the 2nd Annual Biggest Loser Moms Contest, code name F.A.Y.E. (read and see what it stands for.) After a December abusing of food and drink while snowed in, I’m in for scooping my booty off the floor and getting it back in gear.
Washingtonian’s Capital Comment Blog Blogger Beat Interviews – I always find the Q&A interesting and find fabulous new blog addictions (the featured bloggers themselves also recommend great sites.) Check out featured parent bloggers DC Urban Dad, Scary Mommy and Amalah, hot foodie Lemmonex, and my local homie Silver Spring Singular.
Nickelodeon ParentsConnect Parents Picks – Wishful Thinking for Moms and Good Comebacks to ‘Didn’t You Have That Baby Yet?’ cracked me up, and I’m digging the Winter section for craft and indoor activity ideas.
Bellyitch – A fun blog concerned with all things pregnancy, from great giveaways and gear to celebrity bump shots. (It’s written by old friend JJ that I met in 2001 pre-weddings, kids and blogs for both us, and we recently reconnected at a mom blog event – small world!)
U Street Mom’s exhaustive research of the Apple Tree Early Learning Public Charter School and Banneker Early Care and Education Center – two preschools in the U Street corridor. Since many of you guys are in the throes of preschool madness, thought you’d appreciate!
Capitol Hill Style, Project Beltway and The Capitol Fashionista – Bummed that those formerly fat fashion mags in your mailbox are now smaller than the grocery store circulars? Me too. Thankfully online local style writers like these help fill the void with their original looks and links.
And I’m constantly awed by the writings of my fellow columnists on The Washington Times Communities Family Today.
