Fashion Friday: Edition I’m headed for Atlanta

That’s right. By the time most of you read this I will be in route to Atlanta for a speaking engagement. And as much as I’m looking forward to it, I may have sighed a little when I pulled my little black rolling bag back out of the closet last night ....more

Life around here

So. It’s Thursday. I’m not sure where the week has gone because it has been almost nonstop here ....more

And I’m about to be on the road again

There was a day last week (I think Wednesday) when I went to write a blog post and totally blanked on the password for my blog. I’m not sure why it didn’t automatically populate on my computer, but it didn’t and I couldn’t remember it for the life of me. This is especially sad if I confess that I only have about three or four different passwords I use for various things ....more

Fashion Friday: Edition I’m in California

Well, by the time most of you read this I will actually be on my way home from California. But as of this moment I’m sitting in my hotel bed in my pjs with a latte from Starbucks and, I’m not going to lie, it’s the best. So the nice people at Nations Outfitters have offered us a 10% discount code that’s good from today through Sunday, October 4th ....more

Big Boo Cast: Episode I’m in Sacramento and Sophie’s in Birmingham

Earlier in the week I’d texted Sophie and said I could podcast Wednesday night because I knew I’d be in a hotel room in Sacramento on West Coast time. And she said she wasn’t sure she’d have time because of a multitude of things going on, but then she texted me as I sat eating a room service hamburger and said she was in. We both agreed it was important to podcast the week that our beloved football teams will face each other on the field ....more

Dot Mom, football and why I am now 128 years old

So on Thursday afternoon I left for the DotMom Conference in Nashville. My flight was super easy even though I made a total amateur mistake and forgot to check in early on Southwest and thus ended up in the C boarding group. I just couldn’t handle it so I upgraded to the A group when I arrived at the gate and felt really proud of myself when I managed to snag my preferred aisle seat near the front of the plane ....more

Fashion Friday: Edition I’m in Nashville with sketchy internet

It’s true. The internet in my hotel room is free, which is great. Except for the fact that it’s not really very reliable and it’s taken me a sweet forever to get all this together ....more

Five things on a Wednesday

I’m not sure how this happened but somehow monitoring my AT&T bill has become a full-time job. At least that’s what I told myself yesterday after I spent TWO AND A HALF HOURS in the AT&T store trying to figure out why my bill was so high and why they hadn’t credited the double payment I’d made the month before. I’d tell you the whole story but if you wanted to fall into a dead sleep you could just as easily take an Ambien ....more

This is basically a list of errands I ran yesterday and I wish I were kidding

Monday was my day of errands as Mondays often tend to be. It took me a while to get motivated to get out of the house because I hadn’t had a chance all weekend to just sit on the couch and drink coffee while catching up on current events. And by current events, I mean what people wore to the Emmy Awards on Sunday night and watching the video clip of Jon Hamm rolling onto the stage about eleven different times ....more

Princesses! They’re just like us.

So last week I noticed something happened that basically felt like confirmation of all that I am and all the delusions I’ve ever experienced. Princess Kate cut some bangs. In my mind I like to think that she’d been up all night with a crying Charlotte the night before and William offered to watch the kids while she went to get a pedicure ....more
