In honor of tomorrow being Martin Luther King Day, here is the transcript to his most well-known speech. We still have a lot of work to do in this country.

Teens are daring each other to eat laundry detergent pods. I thought having to keep my kid from eating non-food items wouldn’t be an issue after she grew out of the toddler stage. I guess I was wrong…

Walmart has raised their minimum wage, which is great, but in the process, many of their Sam’s Club stores are closing. If you’re a Sam’s Club shopper like we are, make sure your local store isn’t closing.

Since the Tennessee Titans lost to the team that must not be named, professional football is dead to me for the season (well, until the halftime show of the big game because that’s all that really matters…), I’m turning my attention to the Winter Olympics! Figure skaters can now use music with lyrics, and I’m way more ridiculously excited about that than I should be!

Side note – this would be my figure skating song, for the title alone. Also, this video is really intriguing!My

I’ve heard of the concept of the fourth trimester used in conjunction with a baby’s first three months of life. Andrea Dekker talks about that in a recent blog post, but she also shows how the concept can be applied to other transitions in life. Interesting idea!

I used to be a pretty big fan of the TV show The Amazing Race, but I haven’t watched it in a while. However, my mom told me that competitive eater Joey Chestnut is on it this season. His teammate is also a competitive eater! I have a strange fascination with competitive eating, so I’m going to try to watch them to see what they look like when they don’t have a mouth full of hot dogs…

I held out on getting a puffy vest for a while because I call them “mom vests” (yes, I know that I’m a mom. But I never pictured myself as a vest mom). When I finally got one, I was surprised at how warm it was! Now, I am the owner of not one but two vests and needed ideas on how to wear them. Luckily, Laura has over 50 different ways to wear vests on her blog! File this under things I never thought I would be so excited about (that could be the theme of three out of seven of these sites. I’ll let you guess which ones…).

Have a great week!
