Monday Musings: And We’re Back Edition

We’re finally back from an epic vacation and quite the break from blogging. But I’m back and ready to share more awesome things with you – starting with today’s musings.

I’m not a huge fan of the girls who wear flower crowns (I guess they’re fine at a music festival, but still…), but I did laugh at the male equivalent – Beard Flowers.

I’m really glad we didn’t run into Penelope while we were in Brooklyn the other day.

I couldn’t want this cloud lamp that has simulated lightning and thunder (and even does a light show to music!!) anymore than I do. Bad ass!

Watch these guys do a hella good tribute to Daft Punk.

And finally, my favorite this week, Nice One Dad has all the epic Dad jokes you can think of in one place.


Monday Musings: I Can’t Believe It’s June! Edition

Can you believe it’s already June? Neither can I! Time for musings!


Watch this fantastic video of a little boy making the case for vegetarianism.

The guy behind Convos With My 2 Year Old recently posted a second video. And it. Is. Hilarious!

Miss the days of walkie-talkies? FaceTime is great if you’re connected to a WiFi network, but what if you’re not? The new app Glide allows you to send private video messages in real-time, even to your friends that are offline. They can watch you while you’re broadcasting or the message can be saved for later. So now you can get your friend’s opinion on your outfit immediately, or send a “Wish you were here” video from the beach to make all your friends jealous. Fun!

There’s no reason to worry about upcoming summer travel when airports have dogs to help ease your stress and send you off in a good mood. Who’s a good boy?!

Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” is clearly this year’s summer jam. And you’ve probs seen the Celine Dion mashup of her “dancing” to the awesome tune by now. BUT it’s no match for this compilation of Soul Train dancers dancing PERFECTLY to the song. I even managed to find my dancing twin at 1:28.

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday, all! Unfortunately I’m home under the weather today, but these musings brightened my day. I hope they do the same for you.

I felt a bit old watching the MTV Movie Awards last night (who were some of those people?!). But it was cool to see the teaser trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

I was completely jeally of everyone at the first weekend of Coachella. Apparently a commercial for Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories album played on screens at the festival and we got a sneak peek too. Pharrell and Julian Casablancas? Yes please! Can’t wait for the album release.

Did you hear about the crazy Frenchman who broke out of jail action-movie style? I’m sure we’ll see trailers for it later this summer.

Everyone has found amusement in this Dad’s Tumblr blog that features pictures of his son crying about the “many completely logical things” kids cry about. My favorite is him wigging out about not being able to drink whiskey (above).

And finally, ever wondered what some animals look like eating their food? This guy gives you a nice snapshot. The lizard and groundhog are my absolute favorite.
