For one, I'm dealing with a 3 year old who really thinks he's a monkey. We have to call him "Edward Chimpanzee," and he tells me things like, "Mom, monkeys climb things. That's just what we do" and "this is not the family room, it's Africa." I also have a baby who is hell-bent on walking. My monkey child is really good at running interference on that one as I'm sure you can imagine. Decorating is taking a back-seat to things like safety, wearing clothes and avoiding the hospital.
So today, I'm bringing you more random, but awesome things.

This is a good salad dressing from Trader Joes.
