I would like to take a second today to throw out an invitation. It’s not just any invitation, it’s an invitation to the cool kid’s table. OK, so maybe it’s not actually the cool kid’s table (do cool kids where zebra footie pajamas?). Maybe it’s the table that’s right next to the cool kid’s table. And maybe all the kids sitting there are stealing sideways glances (and sometimes just straight up gaping) at the cool kid’s table while they slowly chew their sandwiches and lick the orange Dorito dust off their fingers.
What I’m trying to say is, come on over. Sit with me. Stay awhile. Spill. your. beans. Continue reading
I shared this video on my Facebook page this week, but since they changed their algorithms and made things all wonky and annoying you guys probably haven’t seen it (at least from me) anyway.
We are a little Frozen crazed in this house and can’t seem to get enough of it (it comes out on DVD on my birthday and you can bet your butt it will be in our possession that night). So when I saw Idina Menzel and Jimmy Fallon and The Roots with classroom instruments I stopped everything.
It’s been far too long since my last Momtrepreneur post (6+ months!!!). And since I’ve been on the girl power, small business express train lately, I decided that I absolutely had to revive it.
My hope with this series is to both empower women who need that little extra push to start their own business and to inspire the ladies who have already done so but who could use a little encouragement. And, of course, I’m also hoping to spotlight fabulous small business owners and send some much-deserved business their way.
The newest businesswoman in our little mom club of awesome is Danielle Hale. She is the owner and designer of Pieces to Peaces, a funky, fashion forward accessory shop.
Did you know that March is Women’s History month? This fun little fact has launched me even further into girl power mode than usual. I’m as excited about women and our accomplishments as Jesse Pinkman is about magnets (please tell me you watched Breaking Bad. If you haven’t, I’ll gladly sit and wait while you binge watch the entire series).
I found myself combing through Etsy for all of the most I am woman, hear me roar kind of finds out there.
I found quite a few goodies that are both fun and empowering.
I like snark. I do. It can make me laugh when I’m otherwise feeling kind of crappy. And when it’s witty it can be real good.
I was all set to pull out the snark when it came to red carpet recaps (because, um, I’m completely incapable of skipping them—no matter how hard my husband makes fun of me and the ridiculousness of the whole thing), but I just can’t this year.
From Lupita to Let it Go, last night was a hardcore Girl Power fest and, while ragging on dresses might be fun, it kind of takes away from the whole thing for me. I can’t exactly bask in the awesome afterglow of ladies ruling the night while I’m sitting in my slippers and messy bun tearing down the looks I didn’t like.
Instead, I decided to focus on the hot mommas that were out in full, fabulous force last night—and if you have a problem with that, you can go tell it to Adele Dazeem.
