Weekend Edition


I'm slowly recovering from the mania that was my week and finally back home to sweet home Chicago! There is no feeling quite like coming home (yes, I'm officially 100 years old).

I'm playing house this weekend and chasing after the incredibly loud/crazy/fast/diabolical/adorable kids I used to babysit for in college while their parents get a well deserved vacation. So basically I'm trading one form of exhaustion for the other. But I can't even bring myself to care because we are going to the zoo, darn it, and the zoo is basically my favorite place on the planet.  

Plus I'm obviously a glutton for punishment. BRING IT ON.

If you are not like me and find yourself with some free time this weekend, you should check out some of these finds from around the internet:
