Fun Facts Friday: [5/22/15]

Happy Friday! :)

It’s been a bit quiet over here this week. Not for lack of activity. Maybe too much activity that I haven’t really had a chance to sit and blog in the AM like I normally do. This week, I prioritized that extra hour of sleep.

Hopefully I’ll get back into a normal routine after this long weekend!

Now, on to my favorite post of the week.

Fun Facts Friday


1) Funnest fact of the week? If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook or Twitter or ALL THE SOCIAL MEDIA THINGS, you may already know.

My favorite friend is getting married. And I get to be her Maid of Honor. What. An. Honor. To get to stand next to her. To watch her marry her other half. To get to help plan all the special things to celebrate this special person. I feel so lucky!

2) It was my turn for Soup Club this week. I didn’t do a good job at following a recipe.

Instead, I threw stuff in a pot and hoped for the best.

I’m also the WORST at pouring soup into mason jars.  

3) This week, our school had a Spring Dinner. This only further confirmed the intense love I have for my RBM family.

4) Jen and I went to Philz before work yesterday.  And we were so impressed with the coffee this time [it’s been hit or miss at the new location in Los Gatos] that we called them on our drive to compliment the guy who made the Order Ahead drinks. And we also asked him what days he worked to make sure we go on those days only. We are crazy.


5) One of our kids has passed a total of 5 STEP levels this year. I can’t decide whether her growth in reading is my favorite part of it. Or the fact that her entire class cheered her on by singing, “WHO ROCKS THE HOUSE?” when she came in to tell her teacher. The kids teach me every day about what support and empathy look like. I love them so much.

It’s been a crazy week filled with lots of highs. Lots and lots of them. I’m pretty darn lucky.

Goddess Cards and Yoga Intentions


[Before you start reading this post, go enter to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card!] __________ Mondays.  Oh Mondays. They're challenging. And, for that reason, they are the perfect day to consult the Goddess Cards. Jen and I left work around 5PM and drove straight to the yoga studio. Before we went in, we pulled out the cards, set our intention, and chose a card [at random] that would set the tone for our class. My question/intention was: "What do I need to know going into this … Read more»

Camp Tuolumne Trails: Thinking With My Heart


This weekend was perfect. It was magical. The kind of weekend where you get lost in the little moments of your day. The kind of weekend where you have no concept of time because all of your attention is on the people you're with and the things you're doing. It was my first visit to our campsite. [Rocketship sends it's 5th graders to this camp. RBM is only TK-4th grade for this year! But I was really excited to see where my kiddos would be going next year, so I immediately … Read more»
