At SMB we want to bring you information and inspiration from around the Valley and beyond. Here are some clickworthy links from around the web this week. Enjoy!

So I have an inside source at People magazine. I know, I know you’re jealous. 🙂 Well, she emailed this week with a link to this celebrity baby lookalike contest (yes, technically you could have just found this contest on their website, but TRUE STORY that I heard about it from my friend who writes for People)! Does your little one look like Salma Hayek’s daughter or Ashley Simpson’s son? Click here for contest details and to enter!

Simple. Gorgeous. Turquoise. (Who woulda thought?)

Around the blogosphere this week you may have seen mention of the OneMom week in Kenya (in a very nutshelled nutshell, ten influential mom bloggers traveled to Kenya this past week to raise awareness for advocacy group One.org and their fight to end extreme poverty). This is just one post from one blogger that spoke to me – maybe it will do the same for you, or connect you to another blogger/post about the same trip. Pretty incredible stuff. 

Here’s a sweet post from Raising Arizona Kids blogger Debra Rich Gettleman on receiving a letter from her son while he is at sleep-away camp and remembering similar letters she wrote as a child.

Yesterday at Imagination Avenue I loved watching little boys enjoying the dress-up clothes as much as the girls. This article, then, seemed timely. It’s about the double standard we sometimes set that discourages boys from exploring “girly” hobbies while welcoming our daughters’ interests in athletics, science and other traditionally boy domains.

Thanks to SMB co-founder Joy for another Clickworthy find this week – a fascinating Wired.com article about one of the many ways the internet is changing the face of education as we know it.

Sarah Powers is a writer and Scottsdale mom of two. She came to the valley from Southern California by way of Chicago and would take Arizona summers over Midwest winters any day. A perfect day for Sarah starts with coffee, ends with chardonnay and includes lots of baby giggles and sticky-fingered kid kisses in between. She loves high ponytails, showtunes and using her kids as an excuse to stay in and go to bed early, which she would do anyway. Sarah often tweets and sometimes blogs about the messy, tender, fun, funny and irreverent moments of parenthood.
