Ashley - Oh, I wish I had a toddler! I found the cutest idea on the No Time for Flashcards blog. This blogger made a pretend mailbox for her son so he could play pretend post office. She also had him make his own letters to "mail". I think this looks like hours of fun! Take a look to here see how you can create your own post office at home!
Tracy - I ran across this link on one of the mom blogs I follow. I have not signed up, but am thinking of giving, Alice, a service for organizing and purchasing household necessities online a try. If I can cut out a couple of trips to the store for everyday necessitates, I am all for it! If you decide to try it, or already use this service, comment to this post and let me know how you like it!
Kara - Did anyone see this story on the NBC nightly news with Brian Williams last night? It's all the rage in London.... "Rollasole" vending machines at different venues like bars and dance clubs that dispense a cute pair of ballet flats and a pouch to keep your heels in! I thought it was brilliant.....and hilarious that the founder came up with this idea after constant complaints from his girlfriend and having to provide numerous piggy back rides because of her tired feet! Vending machines are expected to make an appearance in the US soon!
