Cross that one off the bucket list

Did you miss me? I can’t believe it has been a month since I posted. What a loser! Life kind of jumped in and kicked my butt these last few weeks, but that won’t happen again. Here’s a quick recap:

  • Promotion at work (celebrated for two days)
  • Third annual trip to Lake Austin Spa with my BFF from high school (also bought ridiculously expensive purse at Gucci outlet to celebrate promotion – traumatized self for a week)
  • Rock Band slumber party with closest friends. Partied til 4 a.m.
  • Fell deathly ill with a flu/strep throat/sinusitis combo the next day (SuperBowl Sunday – missed the party!) and had to stay quarantined in my bedroom for NINE LONG DAYS (so the hubby and kiddos wouldn’t get sick)
  • Tried to play catch up at work and home for three days
  • Went to the Mom 2.0 Summit last Friday and Saturday – had a blast!

So the Mom 2.0 Summit was incredibly inspiring and thought-provoking and just plain fun. Meeting women who are so talented and successful and doing things on their own terms (and putting faces with blogs that I have been reading for years — even Dooce was there!) reminded me why I started this blog in the first place (almost five years ago!).

And one of the major highlights was — riding in the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile! I rode “shotbun” around downtown Houston, waving at people and acting like a rock star. If you ever get the opportunity, I suggest you take it. Nothing puts a smile on your face like riding in a wiener.

I convinced Amanda (PR maven and new partner in crime) to go along for the ride!

  1. Yes, we missed you! Even those of us who see you missed The BS Cafe. Glad you're back. Mom 2.0 was awesome and it really made me want to go buy a macbook. (Seriously, Apple should be a sponsor next year!)

    The most important issue at hand, though is how long will it take for AB to stop blaming my & my house for making mommy sick?? LOL

  2. That is TOO COOL… middle child has always loved hot dogs. She was thrilled to get her photo taken next to the weinermobile at the Henry Ford Museum (Detroit). She'd kill to get a ride in one.

  3. SpeedyCat – I KNOW. The Wienermobile totally rocks.

    KB – I think you are out of luck. When I called home tonight Anabella wanted to be sure I wasn't at your house. 🙂

    Cocotte – Did she get a wiener whistle? Apparently they are a big collectors item that you can only get from the Wienermobile.

  4. Congrats on your promotion!

    And… HAAAAAAAAAAA… I can't help but laugh that Annabella is still blaming Kristy's house… that's hilarious!

    FYI… You better never come home sick from my house… well other than a hangover! I don't want AB thinking all of your friends homes have kooties!! ;o)

  5. I hope you never stop! This is one of the best blogs Ive ever read. Youve got some mad skill here, man. I just hope that you dont lose your style because youre definitely one of the coolest bloggers out there. Please keep it up because the internet needs someone like you spreading the word.
