What better way to celebrate the beautiful autumnal weather and spooky holiday festivities than the challenge of trying new things and potentially succeed? This week on Growing Up Last, we’re trying all things Pinterest-y. You don’t have to be signed up to participate! Just click the links below:
When you’re done, share with us via submission, ask, or by using the #gulpinterest tag to show off what you’ve accomplished. Be sure to add any Pinterest-worthy contributions not listed above for more October fun!
Growing up Last (GuL) was Monique’s labor of love from the beginning (April 2013) and she has remained a member of the team because, quite frankly, we refused to let her leave for good. Expect to see more from her here, on the GuL Instagram account, and on our Pinterest account in the coming weeks.
Monique will also be part of the selection process for new panel members (which has been officially been closed for consideration right at this moment). And, since some good news always comes with some bad news, expect to see a little less of Marci on the blog by year’s end and into 2015 as she takes a bit of a sabbatical herself.
So, exciting changes afoot with the blog! We are incredibly happy to have so many amazing readers and we look forward to having even more interaction with you all in the coming weeks and months!
Remember when you’d come home from a hard band practice, and your mom poured you a glass of milk and your dad offered homespun wisdom that made everything better? Wait, that wasn’t your parents – that was Clair and Heathcliff Huxtable on afternoon Cosby re-runs. Pop culture has always been full of enviable parents, and for a generation of latchkey kids they were always the next-best thing. Here are 25 that we’d like to adopt – or at least model ourselves after, now that we have kids of our own.
