We'll be getting back to regularly scheduled programming soon, it's just that I've been super busy. Posts about my trip to Michigan (including a very inspiring visit to Ford), BlogHer, and my backlog of recipes and other fun food things to share will be trickling forth from my fingertips. I'm about to leave for Hawaii for just shy of three weeks so perhaps I'll find time to write there. Or maybe I'll just sit on the beach or splash in the ocean with my girls or celebrate my 15th wedding anniversary and stuff.
In the mean time, links will have to do, but this is good stuff.
If you live in Northern California (basically Monterey to the Oregon border) or Western Nevada (Hi, Reno!) you definitely want to check out the awesome contest I am running over on CityMama's Free Stuff. You know how much I hate to do giveaways--I only do them if they are good, and this is good.
I had an amazing dinner this week at one of the best restaurants in the world, Manresa. You can check out the photos of just about every course on my Flickr. It was a fabulous meal and we gushed so much that we were invited into the kitchen to check out the behind-the-scenes action. Truly a dinner to remember.
And while you're on Flickr, you can check out my photos of our roadtrip through Michigan and BlogHer09. If we're not yet friends on Flickr, let's be!
Did you know I was on a panel session at BlogHer? It was a "room of your own" session on Women of Color and Marketing. I will never get around to writing it up, so just go and read what my fellow panelist and idol, Mocha Momma, had to say about it. Being there, in that packed room with some of the smartest frickin' women on the internets, was the highlight of my time in Chicago. It beats seeing Carson Kressley's naked (tan and shaved) chest any day. [photo credit: lucrecer white braxton]
Oh, yeah. I met Carson. He complimented me on my jacket.
While at BlogHer I met John Kim, Seoul bro and VP of Product Management and Marketing for Whrrl. (I confused it with Twhirl in front of him--smooth!). Anyway, I've been playing around with it on my iPhone and it's fun! Love the idea that it tells the stories of your life. If you are on Whrrl, friend me up!
Hope you are all well and that you are having an amazing summer!
