Oh hi, internets. What’s shaking? I left this blog to fend for itself for a few days while my parents dropped in for a last minute visit for a work thing for my dad. Then I had to take my kids out for ice cream this afternoon after they left to make up for the sadness. Did you know that wedding cake flavored froyo can solve all of the world’s problems? I’m pretty sure it could. I also had high hopes for the red velvet, but it didn’t deliver. Oh well.
Anyway, SOME STUFF:
MomCom Austin is still on the horizon and you should totally go. I mean I am, so…
I’m actually really excited to hear speakers like Amy Simmons from Amy’s Ice Cream (if you’re not from Austin, Amy’s is THE ice cream place here in Austin. Which sounds kind of weird because it’s not where we went today, but my place of choice today was based not on my preference, but on the fact that there was a playground in the shopping center. Amy’s, you are my true favorite with your Mexican vanilla and Reese’s peanut butter cups and oh, those wacky hats!), erotica author Desiree Holt (who apparently uses Barbie dolls to simulate the, uh, “situations” in her novels!), and more. Also, MomCom is a place where I know I will get to see a bunch of my people, and it’s just a really fun day. So go get yo’ ticket here!
Over on allParenting, I put together a fun roundup of upcycled crib ideas. I’m still waiting for the tutorial on how to turn mine into a keg.
I come and go with Momastery, but I really related to this post. I have a thing growing in my heart, and I know I’m going to have to buck up and do it soon.
Seriously, y’all. A little dirt never hurt anyone.
Jen Hatmaker does it once again with her relatable humor. Also, I don’t get people who don’t get satire. Then again, I lost a Facebook like when I mentioned twerking, so there you go.
