Links We Love – August 13, 2010

Happy Friday the 13th! Here is the good stuff we spotted out on the web this week:

We’ve got our very own Facebook page now – check it out and come socialize with us!

There’s an article on The Consumerist about children under 2 being required to have their own seat on a plane. As semi-frequent family fliers we both waffle back on forth on this with our little ones. The cost, the convenience, the safety…what do you think?

Homemade by Jill has an entire set of Alphabet Flashcards up on her site for free!

I like the “create a mind map” step in the article on setting goals and taking action over at A Beautiful Ripple Effect. Nice visual breakdown of the steps needed to reach a goal.

We love Lifehacker and our iphones that means an article titled “Lifehacker Pack for iPhone: Our List of the Best iphone Apps” has to be good.

Great response on Real Simple to an article in the NY Times about life on the “Work-Spend Treadmill” – buying things to make ourselves feel happy vs experiencing life. The two of us spent a lot of time talking about the same article and appreciate Real Simple’s take on it from a family perspective.

It’s supposed to be hot the next few days up here in the Pacific Northwest. Time to get that last bit of summer heat in. Have a great weekend!
