spoonfuls of marketing

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

I woke up yesterday thinking –birthdays are always about the one who was BORN on that day but little is acknowledged for the person/people who BIRTHED that day. Does anyone else ever think that? For some reason, probably since I’m now a mom, I always do. So, mad props to my mom for going through the 9 months (nevermind the 33years) to literally carry me around and then the hours of labor to deliver me to this world many moons ago.

I went to Trader Joes today (I know, I have many awesome moments at the Joes….) and had a moving experience which would’ve otherwise (more…)

the thanks I get for recycling

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

So, this morning Brandon loaded up the back of my car with the glass to take to recycle. I forgot this. Living on a hill often causes things to TIP when in the back of my car. Sudden and unexpected accelerations while ON that hill also tend to add to the likelihood that something will probably fall over in my vehicle.

This was the case. And for whatever reason was insanely hysterical to me this morning as I heard the crash in the back of my car. Thankful for the unexpected giggle (seriously… who laughs at that?), I had no clue what was in store for my humil (more…)
