It’s been a busier week than usual. Which is saying something. Since I am the queen of not saying no (and not accepting as an answer from someone else too) it’s been a full week.
Monday I met with fellow Microsoft Windows Power Bloggers for a delightful
breakfast lunch at Grace Kitchen at University Village. Yes, I mention breakfast because if offered breakfast choices, I will order one. So while everyone else was ordering soups, salads and sammies, I dined on this amazing french toast with berry compote. Kristina, our witty and fun Microsoft representative was our hostess. We talked a lot about how we use technology to keep in touch, whether it’s Facebook, or Twitter or Skype. I still don’t do much video calling, but I think after this meeting, I may give it another go. I bet the kids would love it.
Wednesday night, my good friend Leanne AKA Rave and Review was gracious enough to invite me to a small gathering with John, Ted, and Matt from Collective Bias at Still Liquor on Capital Hill. I’d been wanting to learn more about Collective Bias, a shopper marketing agency headquartered in Bentonville, AR, so I was happy to join her. I have a lot of bloggy friends that are involved with them. Hilarity ensued and it was a fun evening of drinks, Tapas, striped socks and a #LeanneSandwich.
We took the Shenanigans from Still Liquor to Terra Plata. Terra Plata has a new menu every day, so it keeps things fresh and interesting. Sadly, at 10pm at night, this means they are going to be out of a few things, like the Whole Fish. The Roasted Brussel Sprouts however, where OMG.
And then, **gulp** Thursday my husband and I signed the documents to buy our first home. It’s a pretty overwhelming process because we’re actually in a pretty unique situation. We’re buying a home that’s under a guardianship. Basically that means that the courts have to approve the sale and THEN (this is the scary part) it get’s published and we can still be outbid!! EEEP! Luckily, it’s a pretty involved process so we’re hoping it won’t happen. If all goes well, I’ll be a home owner at the end of next week.
FRIDAY, I was officially accepted into the Social Fabric community and I’m pretty excited. From what I’ve seen so far, I know it’s a great fit for me both personally and professionally.
So it’s Saturday and the kids are napping. I should be packing but I’m playing on the Internetz instead. 🙂
