Weekly Blueprint

aha-new-bedford.jpgHappy Monday everyone -- I hope you had a great weekend! This was an unusually busy weekend for us, which Jon and I kicked off by attending the Room to Grow fundraising gala (this organization does amazing work for babies 0-3 years of age and their families -- if you don't know about them already, check them out!), and then we also celebrated birthdays for family members and baby friends. It's back to work now, though, and for today's Weekly Blueprint I wanted to share event ideas for the week and also some great holiday gift guides (since I never seem to get around to creating one here at Boston Mamas). Have a great week!
