Every other week or so, the gals behind Kirtsy get asked how the heck we started and run a business from different locations around the country. Or maybe they ask us why we do this. I can’t remember. But the point is, we get these kinds of questions a lot. So sometime last summer, we [...]
Tomorrow will be the last day of NaBloPoMo. And honestly, I can’t believe it’s almost over. This thing has flown, this thing being November. And I’m almost thinking I may keep going on this thing until the end of the year. Not even kidding. Because I still need to write about: 1. Hands On Small [...]
1. I’m sitting at the bar in my mom and dad’s kitchen, while my mom is making bacon. I may never leave this place. Or, I may leave in just a few hours because my body can no longer take the massive amounts of food that’s been served since we arrived here on Monday. Seriously. [...]
As I think I might have mentioned, we’re celebrating Black Friday by celebrating Christmas. Because my family likes to get things done. Also, they live in Texas. Have I reminded you of this lately? Because if it’s not clearly obvious, they do. We do. All of us. Well, not my sister and brother-in-law, but they [...]
All the pies have been made, the potatoes have been peeled, the clinky drink glasses have been laid out, and we’re sitting around my parents’ house, watching the parade, and gearing up for massive amounts of celebratory food. Harry is super excited about the turkey this year. In fact, he just shared his turkey recipe [...]
We’ve found the perfect location for our NYC book launch event! It happens just one week from today (on Wednesday, Dec. 2 from 6 to 9 p.m.). And we’ll meet you at Meet. A fabulous spot in Soho on Crosby Street. Can’t wait to see you there!
So in one week, we’ve enjoyed four Kirtsy book events. In Houston, Washington DC, Dallas, and Austin. And now, I’m entering a couple of days off before our next event (Dec 2 in NYC). But that doesn’t mean the party is over. No. That would be too simple. Of course, almost all of us in [...]
Hey Central Texas! You’re so cool, so hip, so rad. So join us tonight at Kick Pleat, the coolest, hippest, raddest boutique in Austin. (Here it is.) At least five contributing authors will be there. At least. And Robert Oatley Vineyards will be providing some amazing wine (I know it is amazing because I just [...]
I went to see Coco Before Channel tonight, and I highly recommend it. True, it’s a bit of a downer in parts, but the acting, the visuals, and the language are beautiful. Also, it was educational. Before viewing this, I didn’t know: A. That Coco’s real name is Gabrielle. B. That she was an orphan. [...]
We’re going to be at this super cute place called Little Bean Shop from 5 -7 p.m. At least. Kids are totally welcome, and I hear there’s a cool park across the street. Joslyn Taylor and I will be there. And Robert Oatley Vineyards will be providing yummy wine. Stop by!
