- My very favoritest (it can be a word, yes?) post of the week comes from the blog Mama Birth. The post Humbling Moment #547: Women With More Than One Child Are Not Actually Crazy is an absolute laugh-out-loud, must-read about the things we learn when our family keeps growing. There are plenty of days when I'm absolutely convinced that my second kid is hell-bent on making me lose my mind completely, so it's nice to hear that other moms have trouble keeping their shit together, too.
- The Healthy Food and Healthy Living blog by Dr. Ayala is always interesting, but her recent post On Happiness, and Being In the Moment was one that really resonated with me. Our world is so busy and complicated and everyone always seems to be in a hurry and wanting to do and have more, more, more. But a recent study shows that thinking less and living more in the moment might be the key to greater happiness. I'm a big fan of simplifying my life, but I find it hard to live in the moment. This post is a great reminder of why it is so important.
- In The Darker Side of Back Friday, Mom-101 calls out the retailers who have gone too far with Black Friday sales that are now starting on Thanksgiving Day. Would you like a side of rampant commercialism and blatant consumerism with your turkey?

Sunday Surf: Thanksgiving Edition
Since it's been a busy Thanksgiving weekend, my Sunday Surf this week is short and sweet. I'm sure you've got more doorbuster sales to hit anyway, right?
