The whirlwind week

Wow…bear with me, I’m trying to catch my breath…

Okay, I think I’m ready.

The past week has been beyond busy.

On Saturday, my hosting service was hacked, so I spent Saturday and Sunday in near panic mode. I’m endlessly grateful to Craig and my friend Kelly for helping me to get things repaired and functional again.

On Monday, I guest posted over at my amazing friend Lori’s place, In Pursuit of Martha Points.  If you didn’t stop by, please do, as I exposed the skeletons in my closet.

Then on Tuesday, we packed the kids up and went away with Craig to one of his conferences.  He hasn’t travelled much since the kids were born, but this month is relentless, so we tagged along with him for a few days.

Today is a huge day.  I have a couple of wonderful things to share with you.

First, I’m guest posting over at my sweet friend Katie’s blog, Sluiter Nation.  I’m sharing a recent conversation that Craig and I had with Katie…a conversation we wished we never had to have.

Okay, catching my breath again…

And I make my debut on The Red Dress Club today.  I will be co-hosting with my lovely and immensely talented friend, Cheryl, who co-founded the blog earlier this year.

I’m honored that Cheryl has asked me to join her and I can’t wait to see where we can take the club!  Please come by so we can show you what we’re all about!

That’s a ton of running around, but I do hope that you’ll take a peek at the things that have been leaving me energized but exhausted.
