A Mousetrap Morning


(...okay, so it's actually 1pm and we're still in our PJ's, but it's Saturday *and* we're on we're on vacation, so sue me...)

"'Mousetrap,' I said, 'let's play Mousetrap! You roll your dice, you move your mice...NOBODY GETS HURT!'"

Restoration Hardware Thanks You


...for not breaking anything or blowing on the flugelhorn!

Starbucks Stop


Play Ball!


Auntie Sarah had to work, and Dr. J had a surgery or few to perform, leaving us for some fun time in the backyard. We only got to play baseball, football, soccer and tag.

Thanksgiving Road Trip, Chapter 1


...in which we get on the road an hour and a half late, and also in
which the Scion miraculously holds more than humanly possible--plus
the longboard!

Despite what the name suggests, Box of Happy knows that not all Christmas gifts come in boxes (or even bags). For those giving the gift of plastic this year, specifically gift cards/certificates, why not purchase a lovely handmade gift card sleeve to present it to the lucky recipient?

Let Me Google that for You

Falling under the joint category of "Things that I wish I had thought of" and "Things that make my laugh my heiny off," the new website LetMeGoogleThatForYou.com:

let me google that for you picture
(via the mahvelous swissmiss)

Basically, when someone asks you a question to which their obvious answer should be to Google it on their lazy own, you make a link on Let Me Google That for You which basically creates a little video of the mouse moving and then typing in the search into Google. You then send the link of that video to the lazy user.

Keep Calm Now Panic and Freak Out

You know that around here, we like to Keep Calm and Carry On, but who are we kidding? The holidays are mere weeks away, with gifts to be bought, parties to be planned, and turkeys to be roasted, making it an excellent time to now panic and freak out.

Obama Wins! America WINS!!!

Congratulations, Barack Obama! Congratulations, America! We chose hope, and change, and we didn't give into the politics of fear and hate and divisiveness. This is a proud and happy day for our country. We've taken a huge step to get back on the right path.

We are the change we've been waiting for, and it's our time now!

Election Night Bingo!

If you're not going to be spending the evening celebrating at some fancy victory party (Driskill or Hilton, anyone?), you can at least have a barrel of fun at home playing Election Night Bingo! First person to get 5 Red or Blue states in a row wins!

American Stories, American Solutions

What is a Barack Obama presidency going to look like? We're about to get to witness it and be involved in it first-hand, but if you want a preview, enjoy...

Yes We Can

...and we are about to. We are mere hours away from change we can believe in. Not Barack Obama, but ourselves. I woke up with goosebumps this morning and still have them. I suspect they're going to be here for a while, at least through this evening's returns. You probably already smiling, too, and if not, here you go.
