20 Fun Weekend Picks

ice-cream.jpgWell, hello there! I'm still dusting the cobwebs off my brain (and phone) after pretty much being unplugged for five days while I was on a Carnival cruise with the family (AT&T's exorbitant international data rates + very slow internet service at sea helped inspire my unplugged state...a good thing!). I have more thoughts forthcoming on the media trip, but I just wanted to quickly say that it was lovely to get away -- particularly following all of the intense work it took to finish Minimalist Parenting -- and I also missed you all and it's great to be back. I hope you had a wonderful week and enjoy this roundup of picks for the weekend!
