Things to be thankful for ...Take Two-sday ;)

I saved this article from June
and put it in my "Happy Thoughts" folder

Hope you enjoy as well!

"Raising a Princess" by Simon Van Booy

Moral of the story:
Every day there is an egg to catch.
But my one great hope
is that we continue to trust and to throw -
and see the world as a place
where more eggs are caught than broken :)

Things to be thankful for ...

Every year leading up to Turkey Day, I always make a list of the things I'm most thankful for. So in the spirit of the upcoming Holiday, I'd like to dedicate this week to sharing inspirations of both "thanks" and "giving" ...

Hope you enjoy this one as much as I did :)

Happy Monday!

Baby got back!

Pants down, this was most definitely a highlight of my wknd ;)

I feel infinitely closer to Devin Hester now ;)

Despite both da Bears and the Michigan loss,
I was suuuuper psyched for Northwestern ...

Avoiding Life = Me

There is so much I needed to do last night ...
  • Return my mom's multiple phone calls
  • Return other phone calls
  • Call my Grandma Stella
  • Update reports for work
  • Get a head start on month-end billings for work
  • Work out
  • Grocery shop
  • Do laundry
  • Mail engagement card
  • Mail baby gift(s)
  • Upload/share pix from wknd
  • Blog about Lad & Lesley's domestic partnership :)
  • Blog about Melissa Hall's 30th birthday!
  • Edit the new chapters of a book I'm working on
  • Offer to help out with 10 yr High School reunion stuffs
  • Make dinner plans with friend I haven't seen in forever
  • Yada, yada, yada ...

But what did I do instead?!
I turned off my Crackberry
and turned on the movie "Big"
solely to laugh at the two best scenes ever made :)

I figured life's to-do-list wouldn't miss me for a night ;)

All Company Meeting ... Take TWO!

Once a year our whole team gets together in San Fran :)
Mind you, there are only 25 of us,
and the company is only all of 2 years old,
but it's a "Work hard. Play hard" operation
and the 2nd annual all-company meeting was a hit!

I finally had the opportunity to put faces to names with
all the new fantastic peeps that have recently come onboard
and I can proudly say that everyone I met was SO awesome.

To all the new Nuts,

To my fellow not-so-new Nuts,
it was SOOO great to seee you all again!

Peanut Labs has come a long way,
and maybe I'm just drinkin the Kool-aid,
but I love a lot of things about working for a start-up ...

There's something to be said about a young culture

That the founders remain well under the age of 30

and not-so-long-ago had zero credit history!

That there are still only 2 offices ...
oh ya, and remote peeps like me ;)

I love that a paper airplane flying competition
is not out-of-the-ordinary :)

And that Peanut Labs shot glasses
are more abundant than staplers ;)

But most of all, I genuinely enjoy
working with SUCH smart people!

I love the ambition and drive
to help a start-up succeed
because it makes me actually want to
up and start :)

MA! Meatloaf! F#@%!!

Team Ma! struck the courts again this Fall
and I must admit ...
we were better than ever before :)

For the first time we stormed the playoffs
ALMOST squeaked out a league championship
arrrgh, it was sooooooo close!)

Condolences to the red team for losing to us ...
and congrats to the blue team for beating us
(insert hot face here)
But all's well that ends well, right?

huge shout out
to the ever awesome members of "Ma!"

Although we finished #2 this Fall,
I just know we're gonna win it all this Winter :)

I Heart Indian Summer Days :)

It is somehow, somewhy 68 degrees in NYC today!

I past the 1st Street Community Garden on my walk back from getting coffee this morning and saw this mural.
Wanted to be sure to share in hopes that it makes your day a little brighter ... it definitely did for mine :)

I Spotted Another Baby Googly Goo!

Thought I'd post some of his/her "older" relatives just for fun ;)

Sometimes I make tea but don't actually drink it,
I more so just like warming my hands on the mug :)

Thoughts on Naming Your Network

This morning I'm working from a coffee shop on my street.
I always use their network because it has the most bars
but today I came across this little gem of an option
when searching through the connection list:
Obviously I selected this one :)
Therefore, please know this post

"Bad Ass Mutha Fuckaz"


Is it Friday yet?!?
