Is GoldieBlox Just Another Case of Pink-Washed Marketing to Girls?

The GoldieBlox YouTube video featuring three girls building a Rube Goldberg machine has gone viral -- but not without criticism. Yes, the clip shows the trio putting their girlie teapots and doll houses to use as parts in an engineering project (set to a kid-rendition of the Beastie Boys' old tune Girls) But, the video is still a commercial, and beyond the catchy two-minute clip, people are starting to question what GoldieBlox is selling. ...more
I don't think this is "pink-washed marketing to girls" at all. It is a pretty cool toy (we have ... more

Coffee Shop Carrie: Do Viral Videos Ever Go Too Far?

What do you think of this movie promotion for the remake of Stephen King's Carrie?  The movie focuses on a young woman with telekinetic powers. In order to harness the holy grail of viral publicity, the promoters made a stunt video. Of course they did, because ever-escalating stunts are super clicky on YouTube and in the "you've got to see this" sharing world or Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.  And they are scoring, big time....more
I think it is a bit too much. I would have been especially upset if I was in the coffee shop and ... more

Missing My Mom: The Real Consequences of Drunk Driving

Two Wednesdays ago, she called me while I was napping. I usually don’t answer my phone when I’m napping, but this time, instead of hitting the red button, I chose the green one instead. “Hey, I’m taking a nap with Eva. Can I call you back?” She told me, “Sure, that’s fine.” I then fell into a deep sleep. I woke up two hours later, and in the rush to prepare dinner, I forgot to call her back. ...more
I am SO sorry. more

Can You Get 5 Meals and Lots of Chicken Stock Out of 2 Chickens? Yes You Can

I have had some friends ask me about how I make my homemade chicken stock, so I thought I would share it with you all today. I will warn you it is a lengthy post! First, I make chicken stock because we prefer to use organic chicken and chicken stock in our home. Yes, organic chicken is much more expensive but in our house we believe that eating organic is important to our health (we are not overzealous about it, just try to stick with organic as much as possible). ...more

The Real Dangers of Co-Sleeping

Thank you for bearing with me for the past two weeks while we reset our life by three zip codes. I’m feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and we are now completely unpacked in the downstairs bathroom. And here I thought we’d be unpacking for months -- we’ll be living out of boxes for the next two years!...more
I love it! more

OMG Lindsay Lohan What Happened To Your Face? [+ SNL Promo]

Lindsay, let's be real. I am not against plastic surgery. I'd slice my baby-havin-pouch with the hideously disfigured tattoo off in a second, and I'd let them take my asymmetrical saddle bags with it. And I'm not above admitting that there used to be a small bump on my nose. But OMFG LINDSAY LOHAN...YOU LOOK LIKE MELANIE GRIFFITH AND NOT IN THE GOOD WAY....more
