Shoes, Summer, and Intimidation…Something for Everyone

I’m not here today…

Physically, I’m spending the day shopping with my lovely friend, Sherri. We’re on a quest to find comfortable stylish clothes and shoes for BlogHer ’11. We’re also on a quest for a yummy lunch that may or may not include a glass of wine.

And I’m also not here with a post. Instead, I’m visiting Gigi, from Kludgy Mom, who invited me over to be a part of her Summer of Love 2011 series.

Please come on over so I┬ácan tell you why I blog. My reasons may surprise you, but if you are a parent, I have no doubt that you’ll be able to relate.

When Gigi invited me over, I was completely intimidated.

This is Gigi we’re talking about. This woman is a powerhouse…a fountain of knowledge.

Need to make a Facebook landing page? Use her tutorial (I used it over the weekend to make a new welcome page and it was super easy to follow!).

Stumped by writer’s block? Peruse her idea bank, which has 631 prompts to get you going.

Need a good laugh? Gigi will have you giggling in no time.

I’m certain that there’s little this woman cannot do.

And all of that intimidation simply feel to the wayside, as Gigi put me completely at ease by being such a gracious host.

It would mean the world to me if you’d come by and see my at Gigi’s. I’m already angling for another invite. ;)

And if you’re visiting from Kludgy Mom, welcome! I’m thrilled to have you here.

Please pull up a chair and make yourself completely at home. While I’m gone, there’s ice cream in the freezer and wine on the counter.

I’ll be back with my new shopping loot in no time.

    I loved your post over at Gigi's…LOVED!!

    Now I have to say that I am jealous of your shopping trip!! I am assuming you are going to Walnut Creek. Who is watching your kids? Damn it!! I wish I could drive up and meet you!

    Oh, I can't wait for our shopping! And I did this backwards and already visited your post at Gigi's and it's perfect…love it.

  4. I loved your post over there! And what a great place to guest posting- I would be intimidated too, but you are just amazing as always. xoxo
