You guys, I still haven’t unpacked. Wait, what day is it? Have I even showered since Mom 2.0? Ah, back to the life of a work-at-home-mom of 2 toddlers 😉

I had an AMAZING time at Mom 2.0 in Atlanta last weekend. I’ve been wanting to attend because I’ve heard great things and this year was my first opportunity. And those things you hear? All true.

I met awesome bloggers (sometimes, I may have been a little “fan girl” about it in a way only other bloggers would understand),

I’m headed to Mom 2.0 2014 with Contours

I am THRILLED to announce that I’ll be going to the Mom 2.0 conference in Atlanta next week with Contours! I’ve attended quite a few blog conferences in the past, but this will be my first time at Mom 2.0 and I couldn’t be representing a better brand. Your work is always easiest when you’re doing what you love, right?

Visiting Atlanta will be another first for me! This will also be one of the few times I travel without the kids. When they were younger, they sometimes went to conferences with me.

Work From Home Tax Deductions

*As a LifeLock Ambassador I received a membership & compensation for this post on work from home tax deductions*

This is my third year being self-employed with my blog work and social media management. Taxes can certainly get tricky when you’re self-employed, especially when you’re new to the process. What can you claim? What deductions can you take or, maybe even more importantly, what deductions shouldn’t you take?
