Parenting little girls. OY. This one will make you think, laugh, and nod. Bonus, you'll never be able to watch another movie or TV show again without thinking, "Does this pass the Bechdel Test?" So fascinating, and infuriating, and funny at the same time. How'd +Elizabeth Catalano  do that?! More good stuff via +In the Powder Room. We're on a roll!

I just made these for my oldest son's HS Marching Band bake sale, and SWEET SASSY MOLASSY, they are INCREDIBLE. Like...can't. Stop. Eating. Them. 

So do yourself a favor and pin this for later because someday you are going to want to make these.

This one by +Susan Maccarelli cracked me up today. (Probably because I totally relate.) 
I'm on one of my very favorite sites today: +In the Powder Room talking about my Old Lady Holes.  Read on if you don't believe me.

I bet there is a strong chance you have the same situation going on.

I LOVE this piece by +Meredith Spidel this week. It's a perfect example of why she has been selected to be a part of so many successful anthologies over the past year…or maybe I have that backwards, because the kind of positive attitude and grace this woman exudes (in addition to her fantastic writing) surely blesses every project she touches.

As if I could love +Robyn Welling anymore than I already do. She nails this one about birthday parties at +NickMom.
