I met Brene’ four years ago through a mutual friend in Houston. We went to lunch. I asked her about what she was daring to dream…what she really wanted to do. Without skipping a beat, she said, “Speak at TED,” as nonchalantly as I’d say, “Bush my teeth.” Just like that. She put it out there. Boldly. [...]
#90. Nine. Oh. Robyn who wants to take a super cheesy photo of herself at Platform 9 3/4 at King’s Cross! (London Transit put up a little memorial to Harry Potter at King’s Cross station in honor of all the Potter fans that go there every year!) She’s also making 10,000 hats for 10,000 people. Check her [...]
Today, Maggie and I are all giving away giant gift bags of awesome that were given at Mighty Summit. With lots of treats. Treats that you’ll actually use and wear and read and love. We’re giving away two bags (each of us is giving away one)….and each bag full is worth over $750. That’s right. So let’s talk [...]

[...]
Being sick for five days has helped me remember how much I need to be drinking more tea, even when I’m not sick. I think this is going to be one of my New Year’s resolutions. This stuff on Kirtsy today is also persuading me to think more about the treats I consume. Did you [...]
Check it out. I’m beyond honored to be anywhere near this list. A. Please go check out all of these blogs listed on Babble’s Top 100 Mom Blogs. B. Thank you, Babble for making the effort to feature writers, photographers, and storytellers who just so happen to also be raising children. And talking about it. [...]
It’s a good question. Because no matter what else I purchase, all I want to wear is some combination that looks almost exactly like this. Well, that or yoga pants & a Beyonce t-shirt.
This is all I want for Christmas. In a size 8 1/2. And they are seriously nowhere to be found in the whole wide world web. In other words, let it be known, the New Balance WR890 in crazytown rainbow orange are the Cabbage Patch Teddy Ruxpin Tickle Me Elmo of 2011…for people who dig orange shoes. I’m [...]
