If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area and want to up your blogging game or know where to even start, register today, I’d love to see you there!

Loving | Oyster season!
> Oyster season started September 1 and I am taking full advantage of it. That and counting the days until crab season starts. Check out my post from last week on 5 places to eat oysters in San Francisco.

My Favorite Photo | The Rock Saves Puppies
> I know it is totally dorky, but I love Dwayne Johnson. I was a fan before Fast & Furious, but once he joined the franchise I was hooked. Labor Day weekend he saved his two new bulldog puppies that fell into his pool.

Here’s a fun Labor Day weekend story… We just decided to add two new members to our Johnson family. Baby French Bulldogs. In my right hand is BRUTUS and in my left hand is HOBBS. Bring them home and immediately take them outside so they can start learning how to “handle their business and potty like big boys”. I set them both down and they both take off in a full sprint and fall right into the deep end of our pool. HOBBS immediately starts doggy paddling while BRUTUS (like a brick) sink heads first to the bottom of the pool. I take off into a full sprint, fully clothed, dive in the pool, swim to the bottom, rescue my brick, I mean BRUTUS and bring him back to the edge of the pool. He was a little delirious.. took a moment, threw up all the water he swallowed and looked up at me as if to say, “Thank God you didn’t have to give me mouth to mouth!” and then ran off to play with his brother. A few lessons I’ve learned today.. A) Not all puppies have the instinct to doggie paddle. B) Some puppies (like BRUTUS) will be so in shock by experiencing water they will sink extremely fast so react quick. C) While spiriting to save your puppies life, before you dive in, try and throw your cel phone to safety. Don’t keep it in your pocket… like I did. #BRUTUSLives #HOBBSCanSwim #MyCelPhonesDead #AndNoMouthToMouthNeeded #HappyLaborDay

    I’m currently obsessed with The Big Bang theory series. I have to watch several episodes per night. What a great show! Have you watched it?

    Mr. Robot was good, but I didn’t think it was quite as awesome as everyone said it was. Kind of predictable. We just had to replace our HVAC (so now we’re 2 for 2 in the homes we’ve owned), which, I’m not gonna lie, is a pretty big financial setback for us. The timing was horrible. But ah well, we deal, right?! By the way we took our dogs to an Airbnb with a pool. They love swimming in lakes and ponds, so of course my girl immediately jumped right in. But then she panicked because she didn’t know how to get back out! She still had her car harness on so Justin was able to grab it and lift all sopping 60+ pounds of her right out. Phew! It was one of those scary-then-hilarious moments.

      @Katie, I agree with you on Mr. Robot, I liked the first episode and a half and then I was not in to it. I finished the season but don’t know if I will watch more. Dogs and pools! I had a pool when we were stationed in Washington D.C. and we had a dog and it NEVER jumped in the pool, crazy huh?

    We sat and marathon watch all the seasons of Walking Dead two years ago so we could start watching it regularly, and got hooked. Not too thrilled with Fear the Walking Dead but hoping that changes. I’m a Madam Secretary fan too! I haven’t heard of the books your reading and wonder if you have read Big Little Lies? I’m finishing it up now.

      @Cynthia, I am recording Fear of the Walking Dead because I don’t want to watch them one at a time, I think there will only be 6 for the first season and 12/15 for season 2 and 3 so I am interested to see how it is. I have not read Big Little Lies, I will have to check that one out.

    I love the Rock! He is a very nice guy and I enjoy watching him on movie. I think his latest movie was about the earthquake right? I forgot the name

    I have not seen Mr. Robot, but it sounds like a good show. I think my husband would love to read Finished. He loves history books. I’m excited about fall, too, because of the chilly weather. I’m looking forward to reading the interview.

    My family loves the Rock in the Tooth Fairy movie as well as the end of the earth one. He is really a likeable guy and funnier than I would have thought. Plus who doesn’t love a guy with puppies? I am going to have to look into what you are watching, it sure sounds like I would enjoy that!

    I love Dewayne Johnson as well. I loved him since his debut as “The Rock” I don’t live in the San Fran area but if I did I would definitely go to the Blogging workshop. I feel like nothing like that ever happens here in Florida. There are no blogging conferences, no blogging workshops. Everything is online. I mean It is convenient but I do like to engage with real live people face to face. Goof luck on all you future endeavors. I’m sure you will do amazing!

    I haven’t been a Dwayne Johnson fan either, but I just saw him in the new HBO series, Ballers, and was impressed that he could actually act! Now he’s saving puppies…in a tight, wet, T-shirt, hold me back!

      @Kelly, I haven’t seen Ballers yet, I will have to check it out. He isn’t an Oscar-worthy actor, but I like action films and he definitely has more depth than say Arnold or Sylvester. The main thing I like about him is he is from humble beginnings and is a nice guy who gives back.

    I’ve also watched some episodes of Mr. Robot and felt intrigued about hacking systems. It’s really a fun show that’s not only for the tech nerds. 🙂 What is Team of Teams all about? What kind of history does it feature?

      @RochKristin, Team of Teams is about organization structure. The history is early industrial history and military history. The author is a former General who was in charge of all the elite military groups like the Navy Seals etc. and he shares what it was like to be in Iraq, pretty interesting stuff!
