1. Show your sass with hats from Mother Trucker &Co.
The designs and cute messages celebrate life, love and female power. The caps, which are cut smaller than regular trucker hats, are made without all of the extra space on the cap to better fit the female head. Stars and celebrity moms have glommed onto the hats. Tori Spelling, Jenny McCarthy and Christina El Moussa have been seen sporting the hats.
Romantic sayings include “#Love,” “Je t’aime” and “Xoxo.” A pink hat with the breast cancer symbol reads “Fighter.” Others say “Single,” “Taken,” “Bride,” “Boss Lady,” “Dance Mom,” “Dirt Mom,” “Hot Mess” and “Country Girl.”
The list goes on.
Yeah, why didn’t we think of this?!
The hats are $25.

2. Holy mackerel! The Seattle Boat Show is attempting to set a Guinness World Record with origami fish on display in a single location. The goal to set the record is 1,500 fish. Students at Bellevue Children’s Academy and Willows Preparatory School have been folding fish to get the challenge started.
All show attendees can participate. Families can make it an activity to do together at home by following the directions online, and when they come to the show they can drop their fish off at the Information Booth (W-56), see the fish created by students and check on the progress.
Or, while at the show, pick up some origami paper and make fish on site. An origami instructor will give instructions from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Jan. 28, Jan. 29 and Feb. 4.

3. According to the internet, today is National Blonde Brownie Day. Blonde brownies are similar to traditional brownies but brown sugar is used in place of cocoa.
Oh, who cares if it’s a made-up holiday? Any day is a good day to eat a brownie. Now you have an excuse.
