1. This isn't usually an ad space, but since a lot of our friends have babies on the way, I thought I'd throw out that I was googling Ergos for a baby shower and came upon this store, which has some discounted prints, free shipping, and the option of free Ergo brand teething pads. I ordered this one for a friend, and when I got the package, I was blown away by how amazing it looks up close. Wow. And for so long I thought Ergos were boring.

2. Curry Shrimp with Spicy Mango Quinoa with Thai Basil Yogurt Dip. Mango, curry and basil is a combination that is a gift from God.

3. Build Serenity (Firefly) out of legos! If that sentence makes no sense to you...don't worry, it means you're not a nerd (but should still watch Firefly anyway).

7. Up for a little nerdy home decor? How awesome would a full set be? Although a bear to store....

9. What toothpaste is your dentist's fave? Really?

10. 30 kids activities for promoting fine motor skills... also known as "occupy 3 year old".

11. If you don't have a creepy stalker, then good news... Target's new marketing program comes eerily close.

Oh sweet Ergo site! Thanks! And seriously, who needs the death star, a lego Serenity, heck yeah.
