Saturday Six #42

My first full week back from vacation and it was a doozy. I can still remember that I was on vacation but it is fleeting.  Time to think about trips coming up!  What? Think I'm crazy? Well I know there is at least one other person out there who gets that! First up is a trip at the end of this week to San Diego with my best friend to celebrate her 50th birthday followed by two days at a social … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #40 on Sunday

I know, I know. I just got finished telling you that I did not have time for a Saturday Six and here I am doing just that! I blasted through my to-do list and I didn't have a post ready for today, so I thought, "why not?" Just a disclaimer, I did not get a chance to read through all my blog favs on my reader, so there may be some posts out there that I will highlight for the next Saturday Six … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #39

Traveling on the East Coast this week, jumping from airport to city to airport to city, so did not get a lot or blog reading and commenting in, but found six favorites nonetheless! [1] Twenty-five years since Breakfast Club came out, can it be? As a member of the infamous Generation X, I grew up on John Hughes films.  A worshiper of  every single one of them. Pretty in Pink was the first time I … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #38

You know all those weeks when I said was really busy?  Scratch all of them, this week was it.  I was literally cross-eyed I had so much going on.  But it's all good, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right?! I did not have a ton of time to read blog posts, but I did manage to read some (and comment on a few as well) thus I present to you this week's Saturday Six. [1] Marriage is not … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #37

I am writing this post from the lovely Vancouver, British Columbia. The hotel I am staying in, the Westin Bayshore, overlooks the harbor and the view is gorgeous.  Will post more on my trip next week.  For now let's talk about my picks for this week. I have grouped them together into little themes because I always find it fascinating to look back at the end of the week at the posts that I have … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #36

I didn't have too much time for blog reading this week, work was very busy (do I say that every week?). Summer is trying to happen here in San Francisco and the constant changes in the weather tire me out!  It's nearly a month until I leave for France and that is occupying my thoughts as well. But between now and then I have two trips to keep me entertained (although they cannot compare to … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #35

Happy Saturday! As you read this I am somewhere in the San Francisco Bay learning to kayak.  It's something that my husband has wanted to learn to do for a very long time.  The San Juan Islands are the perfect location to kayak in and we want to be able to do it on future trips. However I have this little irrational fear of sharks (remember this?). Terrified. Highly unlikely for where we are … [Read more...]

Happy birthday Alisa Bowman!

I met Alisa last year at the Type-A-Mom blogging conference in Asheville, North Carolina. She had come to meet Julie, and so had I. Julie is a social butterfly and she soon hooked us up with Anne-Fitten and well, as the saying goes, the rest is history! Alisa and I bonded in a seemingly unconventional way.  You see we are both introverts.  There was a moment on the second day of the conference, … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #33

I'm cheating this week. I'm telling you right off that I have more than six posts in my Saturday Six, couldn't be helped, I just could not whittle my list down. As I continuously add blogs to my already massive blog feed I might have to start calling this weekly post Saturday Sixty!  There are just so much great content to read! Without further delay, here are my picks for this week. [1] This … [Read more...]

Happy birthday Julie Roads!

I met Julie over Twilight comments and my life has never been the same. She is a talented writer, a successful blogger, a savvy businesswoman and a wonderful friend.  She is witty and clever and full of life. A petite thing like me, we are both around 5 feet tall, but she is large and in charge! We met for the first time last September for Type-A-Mom conference and fell in love. Then we spent a … [Read more...]
