Weekend Wrap-Up.

hummus bean dipphoto by Jane Maynard

It’s the weekend already and it couldn’t have come fast enough.  This last week was so busy I didn’t sit down before 10 o’clock at night once.  *sigh* Gotta love fall.

Here’s a wrap-up of some things happening on the web right now:

-Jane made a Hummus and Guacamole bean dip I’m dying to try.

-Babble named me as one of the Top 50 Twitter MomsDude.  Seriously? Totally made my week.

Meg Cabot wrote about her feelings surrounding 9/11.  Where were you?  I was at home with an innocent toddler girl, watching horrified from my cozy little home.

-A little Friday Eye Candy from MamaPop, in the form of James Franco.  I will refrain from commenting.  I’ll just say this: it’s no mistake MamaPop has won a BlogLuxe Guilty Pleasure award two years in a row.

-Speaking of SocialLuxe, the wrap-up video is up from the 2010 Avery SocialLuxe Lounge .  Are you in it?  Do you want to be next year?  I do, it was more party than I even know what to do with.

-The awesome women behind Momtastic posted an interview of meI think it went okay; it seemed a little too easy.  Like when you pick the most logical multiple choice answer on a test and hope for the best.

-The Bloggess posted her feelings about bloggers participating in major ad campaigns in exchange for cerealI really don’t even have the time to tell you how I feel about this.  Jenny summed it up nicely.

-I put together a Fall Boot Roundup for Momformation {that’s a BabyCenter blog I write for.  it’s pretty fabulous}.  Are you all in for boots?  I’m ready to buy 5 pairs tonight.  No, really.

Have a marvelous weekend.

  1. jane maynard :

    thanks for the shout out sweet lady…and you need to try that dip STAT.

    • Petit Elefant :

      I can almost taste it.

  2. jane maynard :

    and, btw, congrats on babble! woohoo!

  3. Kami :

    I loved this round up. I loved Jenny’s post. She’s a stud.

    I love that you make lists. I want to make a list. Will you make a list and list me at #1? That would be a real boost for me.

    • Petit Elefant :

      Yes, to lists and you at #1. Because YOU? Are #1.

  4. Kristen Duke :

    Boots, boots, I checked your list, but I am dying to find some tall riding boots that are flat on the bottom. Any suggestions under $100???

    • Petit Elefant :

      Do you have access to Nine West shoes anywhere near you? TJ Maxx? Ross? I’d try those first, then go to 6pm.com and look around.

      I adore riding boots.
