some laughs and an opportunity to be awesome

I can't believe it's been WEEKS since I've posted anything besides Norah's 3 month update. Yikes.

What have we been up to you may be wondering? Nothing and everything. Thanksgiving was wonderful, and we are ready for Christmas. I didn't schedule our Christmas pictures until this coming weekend, so who knows if we'll get cards out, but aside from that all our holiday planning is going swimmingly.

I wanted to stop in today and share a few awesome things I've found on the internet lately. I am on my phone at all hours of the day and night since a) I am getting very little uninterrupted sleep and b) I'm with a little person all day who doesn't know how to talk, so I need some connection to the world. This allows me to stumble upon all kinds of awesomeness online.

Like this video. Anyone who went to college away from their home town I'm sure can relate at least a little bit. Freaking hilarious!

And I know I am late to the game on this one, but celebrities reading mean tweets literally had me in tears. The edition below I find especially comical.

Also, this parenting website never disappoints. I love a good sarcastic read and the writers from Scary Mommy say everything every parent is really thinking. This post on unwanted parenting advice is pretty wonderful.

And last but certainly not least, and on a more serious note, I stumbled upon an awesome opportunity via the Huffington Post. Apparently there is a program called Become an Elf put on by the USPS, and I'm pretty sure everyone should do it. Basically you just help out Santa by reading letters at the post office that kids have written to him, then go buy the gifts and take them back to the post office, so they can be delivered to the kiddies, from Santa.

You can read the article I found here, and the list of locations is here. More info is available here. This program is offered in about 20 major cities, but there is a way to help online I believe, if there isn't a post office near you participating. I can't wait to go pick up my letters. The USPS says most kids just ask for clothes or necessities, which really breaks my heart.

And that's all for now. Happy Thursday!

LOL- mean tweets are seriously insane. I'm glad celebs can laugh about them... I sure couldn't take that!
