Met an online friend today

Today I met up with Lauren Haugh, an online friend who I met at Mommy's Helper Online Community quite a few years ago. Lauren and I live about an hour or two away from each other so we met 1/2 way and enjoyed a yummy lunch at Bahama Breeze.

Lauren is the owner of Scrappin WAHM, Mom's Online Retreat and a few other great websites. We had a really good time and are already talking about meeting up again soon most likely with our hubby's the next time.

I have met quite a few online friends over the years and it's so much fun to get together and talk business, family, etc.

Thanks Lauren for a great day!

Celebrating Women's Day 2008

I really enjoyed listening to all the recordings of the guest speakers from the Celebrating Women's Day 2008 that was put on by Marie Ynami of Mommy Community. You should head on over and listen too. I even won the Trivia contest. Marie is working on putting together my prize so I look forward to getting that. How fun!

Happy Easter

Just wanted to stop in and wish everyone a Happy Easter. Hope your day was special. We stayed home today and relaxed all day. That was nice. My stepson and his girlfriend spent the day with us yesterday and brought me an early b-day cake. We played Pictionary and boogied down to Dance Dance Revolution. I'm exhausted today.

What did you do this weekend? Did you have Easter plans?

Creating a You Tube Video

I learn something new every day. Heather, over at WAHM Consulting News posted steps on how to create a You Tube video and it sounds pretty simple. I will have to test it out sometime using some footage we took with Kev's digital camera. How fun!

Do you have any personal or business You Tube Videos? If so, please share.

Wrapping Up the Week March 14

It's time for Tamara's Weekly Round Up.

  1. What did you accomplish? I sorted and cleared out some of my favorites and old emails although I still have a long way to go on that. I was encouraged to do both thanks to challenges over at A Tale of 2 WAHMS. Hope to get more done this week.
  2. Did anything not go as expected? Not that I can recall.
  3. What was the highlight of your week? The highlight of my week was today when I got to call our travel agent to book our return trip to Jamaica for December. She's looking for good deals as I write this.
  4. Did anything exciting happen you did not expect? Hubby bought me some beautiful flowers this week.
How was your week? Post the Weekly Round Up on your blog and then hop on over to Tamara's site and comment.


Aloha Friday: March 14

This is my first time participating in Aloha Friday. I have been reading Kailani's blog, An Island Life for a few months now and thought I would join in. Hope you'll play too.

If you could take a 10 day vacation with your spouse/significant other (no kids) where would you go?

We would go to Jamaica! We have been once and we are booking our return trip this weekend. I'm so excited! Feel free to look at our Jamaican vacation pictures and watch this neat video we had made.

This past week the Travel Channel had two great shows to watch, 25 Best Beaches and a show about Jamaica. Both were great.

Wrapping Up the Week

This is my first time doing Tamara's Weekly Round Up. Thought it would be fun and would help get me blogging more.

  1. What did you accomplish this week? This week I worked more on my new weight loss/fitness blog and finally figured out how to keep a post at the top of the blog and add my signature graphic. I am using Wordpress for my new blog and it definitely has a learning curve.
  2. Did you tackle any new projects or activities this week? No new projects or activities this week
  3. Share two things that did not go as planned. Everything seemed to go as planned except we lost power on Wednesday and all of our DVR recordings were gone so we were bummed about that.
  4. What was the biggest joy of the week? The biggest joy of my week every week is spending time with my hubby. We joined a fitness center a month ago and really enjoy that time together.
