A Few Things I Forgot to Mention


Whoops, sit back down. Somehow I forgot to mention: 

A few weeks ago Rob and I got into an argument in public. Read my side of the story here.  

Joanna of Cup of Jo mentioned me in a her interview on Elizabeth Street and again in the Top 10 Parenting Blogs list she curated for SAYMedia. So flattered. A new discovery for me from Joanna's list is Brooke Reynold's blog inchmark. This simple father's day craft won me over. Pinned it.  

My scooter was stolen a few weeks ago at the playground. Hopefully whoever stole it is finally getting to work on time. That's the only reason someone would steal a junky scooter, right? To solve their chronic lateness? When replacing my old one, I decided to upgrade from the A2 ($29) to the A3 ($39). It's totally badass.

I feel like an idiot for learning all about Nora Ephron for the first time this week.  It's the same feeling I had when I discovered the greatness of Julia Child through the movie Julie and Julia. While I'm at it, I've also never read a Jane Austen book. How can I call myself a writer? A woman?!

At a luncheon with the editors of Ladies Home Journal last week, I found out they want their readers to write the majority of magazine. Submit your best work here to be considered for future publications.  They pay! The only requirement is that you must have read and enjoyed a Nora Ephron and a Jane Austen book. Dang it! haha

And finally, don't forget to enter this contest for a chance to win $250 gift package!

Ok--I'm done. Now you can be on your way. Have a great weekend!

  1. "arguement"?! "curatered"?! "Julia Childs"?! I adore your beautiful photos and heartfelt posts, but to be honest (and not in a mean spirited way at all), the omnipresent grammar and spelling mistakes drive me nuts to the point that I cringe and am discouraged from following your blog, which is disappointing since you come across as an inspiring writer. Sorry. :(

  4. I have to agree with Rob on this. The other day I was at a restaurant and this woman was sitting at the table with a young daughter. She was compelely lost on her phone, I could even hear her watching a video at one point. The daughter just sat there quietly and it was just kinda sad to me. Was spending some quality time with her daughter so boring that she needed to play on her phone? I know for sure we need breaks and need some time to unwind, and it's great for times when work really can't wait, but it's also good to be in the moment and not send the message to others that they aren't important.
