5 Things Friday

Happy Friday, internet!  I hope y'all have had a great week.  Mine was wonderful, thanks in part to all the sweet comments and emails I got after sharing my big news.  Thank you for all the well wishes!  Now I'm looking forward to a weekend of housework (the bathroom reno is almost done!) and pinning baby stuff on Pinterest.

Until then, here are five things worth sharing on the internet:

1. In the event that you haven't heard, Domino magazine in back.  For real this time, and Michelle Adams, formerly of Lonny, is the editor. (Hooray!)  However, it's also an online store (ok?) and the magazine will only be published quarterly (dangit), and it costs $12 but is about the same size as other shelter mags (y'all tell me how you like it).

The New York Times published an interesting article on the topic, with quotes from internet mavens Grace Bonney and Jaime Meares.  I'm excited to check it out, but as one NYT commenter put it, it sounds like a catalog that you pay for.  I'll be reading the first issue at Barnes and Noble.

2. I love these little felt masks, and think they'd be such a fun thing to have on hand for little people playing pretend.  The cheap yet confident side of me thinks that I could make something like that, but I know they wouldn't be nearly as cute!

3. These are some kick ass pants.  I saw them in person, and I wish they came in a maternity version for holiday events this year.  Think how chic they'd be with a cozy sweater, or a fancy top for New Year's Eve.  Sadly, there aren't many left online, but you might find them in store.

4. I want my friend with cool handwriting to make me something like this.  I will pay her 5 American dollars.  Are you reading this, Maryam?  ;-)

5. I read a lot of blogs, but as I scrolled through my Feedly this morning, I realized that I don't know of very many mommy bloggers besides the very famous ones.  Do the rest of you know of any that I should check out?  I'm not interested in extreme stances on evil foods, or all crafts all the time, but rather some ladies who've maintained their style after having kids and provide product recommendations or links to interesting information.  I'm sure there are a million, but I haven't found the right blogroll yet.

 I wish Kristen Bell would launch a mommy blog.  She is my favorite.

Have a great weekend, ladies!
