Have a relaxing weekend.

What are you up to this weekend? We're taking the boys to the Natural History Museum tomorrow and then going on a schooner sail (just grown-ups) tomorrow night. I'm looking forward to getting out on the water. Hope you have a relaxing weekend, and here are a few fun links from around the web...

Cat people, check this out!

Are elves real in Iceland?

Four summer appetizers. (Jenny gets it right every time.)

I love these posts so much. I noticed that you usually include a few from the NY times. Since I don't subscribe to their online subscription, sometimes I click on these posts and I end up running out of 'free articles' for the month. Would it be possible to add the source next to each link, or at least just for the NYT articles?

Oh!!! My brother Magnus Hierta works for the Martin Agency and is the Creative Director on the Oreo Wonderfilled campaign! He's awesome!!! My other brother David Klingenberger is the genius behind the Brinery, an Ann Arbor based lacto-fermented sauerkraut company (which just so happens to be the the official kraut of Zingerman's deli....). :) I am so so proud of my family!!!!

love the idea of putting bounce sheets in a suitcase.

*Duh* Of course Elves are real in Iceland... their most prominent one is Björk! (She's also a part time, international Singer/Musician)
I thought everyone knew that by now.

Have a lovely Weekend!
