Welcome to all the new people who have stumbled upon my blog in the last week. This is my weekly segment where I share the top 5 things I found on the web in the past 7 days. This week there’s some parenting stuff, some stuff to save you money, all of it worth a read (IMHO):

Added bonus: Everyday Mommy is hosting the First Annual Hidden Treasure Blog Awards (hat tip Rocks), so if you wanted to go and, lets say, nominate a post or two from a certain someones archives, I certainly wouldn’t mind.  At any rate, keep your eyes out for good posts in the blogosphere for the next few weeks.  Nominations start Feb. 1st.

Previous Web Round Ups in case this didn’t meet surfing needs for the day.
