You’re never too old for sleepovers, you guys. Whoever said you are is a big fat liar or has never experienced a good sleepover. When I was a kid, my favorite part of a sleepover was snuggling up in my little cocoon (AKA sleeping bag) as my friends and I were laid out in almost every single inch of the living room. I never had the cool colorful sleeping bag, but mine did the job alright.

HOWEVER… If I had this Shark Sleeping Bag by Chumbuddy, I would be the talk of the party, or better yet, the life of the party. With Jaws, Shark Week and Sharknado bringing so much attention to sharks, this idea of an open shark mouth sleeping bag is just genius! I mean, sure, I’m actually really terrified of ever going into an ocean with thoughts that a shark will pop up out of nowhere but I can deal with this.

…What I can’t deal with is the price tag. Everything comes with a price. At least, that’s what Rumpelstiltskin from Once Upon a Time told me…but if you’ve got the dough and the appreciation of a great sleeping bag, go for it!

Authors Erin Bowman, Sarah Enni, and Tracey Neithercott decided the world needed some super cool dust jackets that let people know they should not interrupt your reading, and rightly so!  The fun and funky dust jackets they have created tout messages like “Shhh… I’m Reading,” “At Hogwarts, BRB,” and “Reading > Talking,” all thoughts I know I’ve had when picking up books (yes, even the Hogwarts one).

Quirky Item of the Week: The Every Occasion Card

Quirky Item of the Week: The Every Occasion Card

I am one of the few people keeping the United States Postal Service in business. I like sending people letters, notes, and cards just as much as I enjoy receiving them, so I’m always on the lookout for fun stationary. These Every Occasion Cards caught my attention right away for obvious reasons. They’re pre-printed with a bunch of check boxes that let you check off your own combination of words to create a fun and rather cheeky message and have plenty of space on the back to add on to that one-liner.

I like cute stuff. I can’t help it. I see something cute and I want it, even if it has no real purpose beyond it’s cute factor (for example, check out my post about Fridgeezoos). So you can just imagine my reaction when I saw Egglings for the first time- immediate wide eyed I have to one now face.  Continue reading
