Cara’s Friday Finds
—Ann-0ther Sale. You’ll have to thank my friend Jodi for this sale alert: Check out the reduced prices at Ann Taylor Loft. They’ll take another 40% off the sale price at checkout.
— For the hipster baby set. Via Maya’s Mom, I saw this post from Mamanista about Sandbox Threads—an adorable store full of ironic, funny, and just plain cool tees and onesies for babies and toddlers. You can emblazon Jon Stewart, Wonder Woman, or even catchy slogans like “My Mama’s for Obama” on your lil’ cutie. Extra bonus: This is a small business started by a stay-at-home dad! I love it. Shown here is the logo I want to put on a shirt for Cassie. She could totally be a Princess and a President, but that’s for her to figure out later.
Then on Sunday, you can watch the season premieres of The 4400 and The Dead Zone starting at 9. Neither was as good last season as in previous seasons, but there’s always a chance they’ve improved with age. And Anthony Michael Hall is way cuter than in his Breakfast Club Days. As an aside, Monk fans also may enjoy this Modern Mom interview with Traylor Howard, who plays Natalie, Monk’s personal assistant.
— Coming soon, a wee little laptop with a wee little price tag. Now that my hubby’s all into computers for his job, I get to find out about the “next big thing” in techy stuff. Working moms on the go will be very interested in the August launch of this new Asus EEE PC 701 notebook. This tiny laptop can do all the basics most people would need for work, and it only will cost $250! Now just about anyone can afford a laptop, even if your employer won’t buy one for you.
