Random Thoughts on a Monday

I had a busy weekend and I’ve got tons of little things that don’t make up a whole post on my mind so….

 

  • I spent the weekend at Type A Conference here in Atlanta.  I volunteered and my job was to take Instagram photos for the Type A Parent Instagram Account and to tweet. A lot. Needless to say, I’m tired of social media now and need a break.
  • I’m still thinking about the conference and what I want to say about it. I will say, that I met/hung out with/got to know better/ and excellent group of bloggers. MUAH! to you all.
  • I am a alumni helper for the Photoshop Elements Class with my photography bestie/mentor/she’s just so dang cute/ friend Melissa Gibson over at Clickin Moms. So if you need help with Photoshop Elements, the class starts today, I think you can still sign up.
  • I haven’t been able to run/work out or even laugh without going into a coughing fit for about two week. Yes, I had bronchitis and it’s just lingering. Hopefully it will be gone soon and I can resume my 1/2 marathon training( yes, I am STILL running the Disney Princess Half in February!)
  • The one thing I love about Blog conferences is also one of the things I hate: I’ve got a stack of business cards with new blogs and new twitter handles to follow.
  • Tomorrow is the first day of Fall. I think I’ll celebrate with a Salted Caramel Mocha and edit these photos of Pookah at the park learning about squirrels and acorns.

  • CDub’s birthday is next week….I have no clue what to get him.
  • Did you see The Carters on HBO this weekend? I swear my eyes were sweating at the end when they did that family montage at the end.
  • SCANDAL STARTS THIS WEEK! OOOOOMMMMMMGGGGGEEEEEE
  • Don’t forget to sign up for my Newsletter. There are new things coming on the horizon, make sure you are a part of it!!

How was your weekend? What did you take photographs of?

    I know so many people that went to Type A, I wish I could have gone. I am really wanting to attend a blogging conference…definitely a goal for this coming year.

    I know exactly how you feel about the conference…and business cards! My son is 11 months today, which means that I only have a month to figure out what I should do outside of going to Disney for Niche. Aye yi yi…the job of a mother!

    Loved hanging out with you at Type-A this past weekend! Can’t wait for us all to get together again! 🙂

    That sounds like such a great job to have for a conference but I’m sure it can put you into Social Media overload! My daughter just had a case of bronchitis and her’s seems to be lingering as well, feel better soon!

    Do allow Pookah to share what he learned about acorns bc I’ve wondered their purpose since childhood. We use to have millions f them in our driveway.

    I saw some of your pics on Instagram, I wish there were conferences on this side of the world. Perhaps I should make that happen.

    Wishing you NO more days of that nagging bronchitis.

    I’m thinking we are going to have to have an off line about Type A?!!!

    I finally stopped coughing about a week ago that lingering cough is enough to make you want to cuss.

    I really wished I had made it to Type A this year. Sounds like everyone had a great time. I hope you are feeling better soon. I’ve been slacking a little in the fitness department myself. I still have my Disney Signs from the Disney Side Party a few months back. I finally have a great reason to use them. Hope you feel better soon. I unfortunately wasn’t able to see the On The Run Tour. Man I wish I could have seen it. Hopefully they will put it on DVD soon.

    I planned to be at Type A this year, but my schedule has been too stretched.
    SCANDAL! Yep.

    I’ve been out of the loop, but kept my ears open for Scandal’s new season, yes!!

    As for birthday presents, to make things easier on Mr. C (since he never knows what to get me) I just share a document of my “wish list” of things that I either need or want. That usually cuts down on some odd gifts.

    But he does have it easy–all I need is books and music.
