Looks like we’re getting one of the (maybe the) final storm this winter. We’re all stocked up on food, firewood, and have plenty more House of Cards to get through this afternoon and evening.
Gold and White or Black and Blue?
So, we were all obsessed with the dress, right? Is it gold and white, or black and blue? I was firmly white and gold, but then I saw it CHANGE COLOR while I was scrolling. FREAKY.
Turns out it is black and blue, but the fascinating thing about it is not how silly our obsession over it became, but what it means about sight.
We all know some people don’t see things the same-they are colorblind. what the dress showed us is that color isn’t exactly as static as we think it is. Listen to this Radiolab podcast for more.
DudeMom Travel Picks
My friend Amanda is at Disney World with her kids right now, but before they hopped on a plane she shared this post about the most awesome travel stuff for kids, especially tweens and teens.

Tips for Runners
I may not be able to run right now but I’m looking forward to being back to running soon. The younger kids are signed up for running programs and I’m helping coach my son’s team, too. When I saw Jessica’s post about tips for improving marathons I knew it would be great advice-even if we’re only planning to run a 5k. Read more at EatSleepBe.
Bali is on my must-visit list and seeing Katja’s post about 14 ways to experience Bali has me looking at flights. It may not be practical right now, but I’m planning for it. Just look at the photos in her post and you’ll be as enchanted as I am. Read more at Huffington Post.

I don’t have a of picks this week because I’ve shared most of them throughout the week in the posts, but this made me pretty excited to see when it landed in my inbox.
We wear sunscreen, but I find myself at odds with the spray it on every 5 minutes kind and the chemical laden sunscreens on most drugstore shelves. It doesn’t help that the kids tend to get skin reactions to certain sunscreens either. Honest Company has a sunscreen that looks great-no chemicals and only zinc oxide. Add in their adorable sun wear and I’m ready to head somewhere warm ASAP.
