Odds and Ends No. 3

1. Today is the last day to enter my $150 Old Navy giveaway at What in the Whoorld. Be sure to enter here!

2. I also have a poll up at Babble. Do (or would) you give your children blogging nicknames? Do you think it’s safe or silly?

3. I’m doing a series of posts at Cafe Mom about our favorite family dinners. (Meaning EVERYONE in my family will eat it…more difficult than you would think.) So far, I’ve written about burgers with a delicious black bean and corn salad, a modern take on pork and beans, and shredded barbecue chicken sandwiches with kale chips. (Yes, my children actually enjoy kale chips. I win at life.) Since fall is now officially upon us, I have some great slow cooker recipes slated for the upcoming weeks.

4. Big exhale. I am really looking forward to a relaxing weekend. We are going to take a boat cruise around the harbor tomorrow with some friends, and Sunday’s agenda involves an enormous amount of lounging and football. I have an exciting couple of days planned in LA (!!!!!) next week with a trip to Colorado immediately following, so I am going to revel in this downtime before things get crazy. I hope you all have a spectacular weekend!

    I tried making kale chips but something must have gone wrong. They made me gag (and I’m a veggie LOVER!) I was sad.
