a BlogHer12 NYC review

This was my third year at BlogHer, but it seemed so different. It feels like there are hundreds of things I want to tell you… but we’ll save the 24+ hour trip home (thank you, Southwest), my favorite products and gifts, and my tips for another post. Right now I just want to share my pictures and recap what I did in NYC!

The trip out was great–even though I had a 6am flight, got up at 1:40am, and left my house at 2:15am to drive to the airport. It

The First Annual Blogger Baby Shower for a Cause with Baby’s First Test!

This past weekend I was in NYC for BlogHer, the huge annual blogging conference for women (and some men!). It was my third year attending and this year I was lucky enough to be sponsored by an amazing organization, Baby’s First Test. They promote and raise awareness of newborn screenings.

Blog conferences are all about the follow-up: business card test

I’ve been to the large blogging conference BlogHer twice and am about to go for my third time early next month.

bumps, scrapes and bruises

What are little boys made of? I’ve heard of snips and snails and puppy dog tails…. sure, that’s cute and everything, but I’m pretty sure little boys are made of bumps and scrapes and bruises.

It’s a good thing little kids are so resilient! Ryan is at the perfect age to just get into everything. He runs in circles around the house, jumps from the couch, climbs the tables… we have our own little monkey in here! And he’s just the right height to hit counters and tables, he’s just clumsy enough to still
