2015 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration: Day 4

IMG_6447

If I could paint a picture of how I feel right now, it would include a happy face, sad face, and a really big exhausted face. It’s been a weekend of nonstop activity and I would have it any other way. But the conference is over. Mother’s Day is over. And my mini-vacation is over. […]

Day 3 is always the best part of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. The conference day is behind you but you still have some planned activities. And then? Lots and lots of free time to do whatever you want. I started out the day bright and early with a unique opportunity to get filmed […]

IMG_6275

CONFERENCE DAY! Conference day at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration is always a day full of surprises. We’re surprised at what the program holds and surprised at what our families spend their time doing (mine went to the pool and Magic Kingdom). It wasn’t so bad, though. I got to see some of my […]

IMG_6188

You’ve been closely following my tweets, Instagram pictures, and Facebook updates. You been watching and waiting for my video from Day 1. You maybe even set the alarm to get up early waiting for my video to post. Well, here’s the problem. I woke up at 4:30am yesterday morning for an early morning flight. I […]

Meerkat is more than just a cute little mammal from Africa

Meerkat

How long have you been waiting for the Next Big Thing in social media? Not only have there been tons of apps to compliment, augment, and even consolidate our social media platforms but there have also been plenty of new platforms. And most of them don’t last too long. As proof positive of this, I encourage […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Losing My Blogging Mojo

SOC Sunday 2015

This week felt like my first real brain dump. It’s been hard to let go of my writing. A lot harder than when I used to do this. So I’m thinking maybe this exercise is a good one for me. When I wrote this entry, I started in one direction and felt like my fingers carried […]

The images that come when you Google yourself

comedy-2

A few days ago, I was following a thread that the lovely Amy Bellgardt from MomSpark had posted on Facebook. She had apparently done a Google search of her name (which, trust me, is something anyone online should do from time to time) and looked at the images that were returned. She shared with us one […]

9 Things You Didn’t Know About Women and Car Shows

Pam Fletcher - GM Electrification

I’ve been going to car shows for as long as I can remember. Or at least as long as I’ve been married, which kind of feels like the same thing. My husband is a fan of cars and so am I. He likes the mechanics and I like the aesthetics. It’s part of why I […]

Do we need another conference?

Dream conference

I’ve had event planning in my blood for quite some time. I entertain at my home. I prepare food and drink for the masses. I even try to decorate or provide a theme where appropriate. But I haven’t had the chance to do real event planning until I officially started with SheBuysCars a few months ago. In […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Breaking my own rules

SOC Sunday 2015

It’s Sunday and whether or not you attend some sort of worship service, I think Sunday is the ideal time for quiet reflection and a time to release a lot of what’s jumbled up inside our heads. Sometimes it’s a release. Sometimes it provides clarity. And sometimes, like this morning for me, it’s simply therapeutic. […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: What’s a gallbladder for anyway?

SOC Sunday 2015

In case you missed it last Sunday, I decided to resurrect my stream of consciousness series on Sunday mornings. I started it a few years ago and then turned it over to someone else who isn’t doing it anymore. I don’t know if I needed permission to take it back but I decided I needed […]
