Annemarie’s Awesome Links and Happy News

I don’t know why I’ve been hoarding my links, but there are many, and lo, they are awesome.

Vivian wanted me to pass this along: We welcomed our baby boy into the world on Friday afternoon, Nov.14. We’ve given him the name Ezra Jacob Thiessen Unger. He weighed a cute little 6 lbs. 5 oz. and he’s doing really well. So far my recovery after the cesarean birth is going OK, though I’m definitely feeling the limitations of my body! We’re thrilled to have Ezra as part of our family. Thanks for all your thoughts and well wishes leading up to this birth!

YAY! Congratulations, Unger family!

On to links (lots of these are funny this week so maybe do a few Kegels to prepare):

Hashtag Advent (I love Anglicans).

And 40 days of Advent love and gratitude (warning: autoplay music on that site)

Not funny, very true: Are you the default parent?

Domino magazine’s 26 favourite design blogs, if you need some eye candy

Ok, get ready, because the rest of these all cracked me up like whoa.

Sacrilege at its best: Bible verses in which praying has been replaced by truckin’.

This was relevant to me this week, so I’m sharing in case you share my struggles: how to fix a bra when the STUPID underwire pops out and fills you with unutterable rage and the air turns blue with your swearing.

Everyone should write down the crazy stuff their toddlers/preschoolers/kids say, because it is comedy GOLD. Exhibit A.

  1. I am looking forward to reading through the links. I have enjoyed the first half of the “Default Parent” but couldn’t finish yet because I had to stop and help the kids and their dad figure something out…
