Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! Our Saturday was unusually full to the brim (including the joys of seeing Laurel ease into swim lessons and also discovering that Violet is a total natural on ice skates...of course, just in time for the skating season to wind down!), and then Sunday was delightfully lazy. And now, Monday! And OMG more snow! Let's kick the week off with the Weekly Blueprint:
Happy Saturday everyone, I hope you're having a good weekend so far, despite this wacky weather. If you haven't yet checked out the Weekend Roundup, be sure to do so since there are 25 event options to consider. And meanwhile, if you're looking to cozy up with some interesting reading, here's what caught my eye this week for Hey Internet, Keep Being Awesome. Have a great rest of the weekend and see you back here on Monday!
When I first heard that my friend Gabrielle Blair landed a book deal, I was thrilled and filled with anticipation because, quite plainly, Gabby is one of the most delightful, gracious, and positive people I know, and everything she touches evokes quality, style, and beauty...but in a totally down-to-earth way that makes you feel like you're her best friend. And Gabby's new book Design Mom: How to Live With Kids: A Room-by-Room Guide does not disappoint.
Happy Friday, everyone, I hope you're having a wonderful week! It was so great to meet some of you at the Mommybites Boston mom's night out event last night -- thank you so much for coming out and braving the rain! Meanwhile, who else is excited for the weekend? If you're looking for something to do, enjoy this roundup of 25 events, lovingly curated for your consideration. And tune in later today for a fantastic Friday Find!

The result is later bedtimes, overtired kids, and frustrated parents. Today I want to share 6 tips for getting bedtime back on track.
