More snow. I may go completely insane.

This morning, I was wishing I had a Missybot (a reference to “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” in case you missed it) to stand in for me — take the kids to school, pretend to be friendly to the other parents, run a few errands. I just don’t feel like dealing.

Anyway, bring on the weekend, ’cause this week needs to head out of town.

For your Friday linky pleasure….

I was interested in Brokelyn‘s list of 10 Best Brooklyn Brunch Spots, some of which involve alcohol and seem potentially kid-friendly.

Loving the idea of the completely cool and original sounding Hibernators Ball this weekend at Wave Hill. Kids ages 3 – 9 are invited to wear jammies and bring along a teddy bear to learn all about winter animals that hibernate. They’ll get to make animal masks, play games, hear stories, and dance at the Ball. Kids 5 and over can go on a wintry Discovery Walk to try to spot some of the garden’s residents (bunnies and others) who may be waking up from their long winter’s nap. (The New York Times) Get full event deets at Wave Hill. FREE, except for the Discovery Walk, which in Sunday only.

BoCoCaLand tipped me off to the new soccer store on Atlantic Avenue — there’s a 750-square-foot play area inside and they offer kids’ soccer classes.

I’ve been fantasizing about ditching the snow and moving to Austin, where the living seems pretty good (except for the part about being in Texas.) Spotting this impressive Austin house redesign on design*sponge added fuel to the fire (check out the sliding chalkboard door panel.)

Got a kick out of Bakerella‘s insanely adorable — and creative — strawberry “milkshake” cupcakes. They’d be a major hit at a birthday party.

Happy weekend!
