The Girl made Cinnamon Roll Waffles

I blame Kailey Lampert for this tweet. 😉 @bluelimemedia @jan_dembowski This is also in line for experimenting http://t.co/y0ifMqkisX — kailey lampert (@trepmal) March 26, 2014 Which lead The Girl and I to this link where we learned how to make these. Quick to make and they’re good too.

CSS specificity is your friend

Note to self: Using “Inspect Element” in Firefox and looking at the selector you can avoid styling everything except what’s broken specifically. (It was “.entry-format-badge.genericon” in case I forget.)

Favorite new WordPress 3.9 feature

Copying and pasting from Microsoft Word directly into the Visual Editor is my new favorite thing in 3.9 beta. I just tried it on Lily’s store WordPress site and it worked alright.

This is something that’s bugged me since yesterday and I figured I’d post a public apology to my children. You see, they really wanted a snow day today or at least a delayed opening. I’m going to take the chance and hope that my kids can someday forgive me and understand this mighty burden that […]
