Up, up and away...

This feels so weird, blogging from air, literally. I'm on my way to Denver for a work conference and was able to get free Wi-Fi on Airtran so here I am tweeting, blogging and sending emails. Anyway, things have been crazy, as they are for all of us, I know. Thought this article in today's New York Times was funny about all of us mommy bloggers. Thanks to Claudia for sending.

Also, this trip has made me appreciative...of my husband who steps up when needed, my daughter for not crying when I left and my friends, especially Dana who is making an effort to see me in Denver and be away from her family. I know our friends at home will also be helping Ja while I'm gone.

Wish me luck these next few days, long hours, client stuff and sore feet (I'll be at the convention center most the time). But, it will be good. Starting to see the mountains and they are screaming for us to shut our devices off. Will post mountain pics(hopefully good ones later). Have a good week and Happy Monday!

A Coke and A Smile...

Well, hello, folks.  Been a very busy few weeks.  Spent some of last week with my family in Big Canoe (very nice) and a few days at the Ragan communications social media conference at Coke headquarters.  I have to admit that I was really excited to go to Coke headquarters.  How long have I lived in Atlanta and I haven't been there?  It was great.  Diet Coke just sponsored the Heart Truth campaign and they had all the red dresses the models wore during Fashion Week on display (see pics).  Really cool.  Heidi Klum's was front and center.  I also got to go to the new World of Coke museum.  Really great inside.  The Coke polar bear hugged me and I got to bring Sydney back a little bottle of Coke (bribery for being gone). 

All in all, good time, but hard on J when I was gone.  What is up with my child not going to bed lately?  And one of the nights I was gone she was up for hours in the middle of the night.  Ugh!  Any ideas about the bedtime rituals?  We have tried it all but once she gets into the bed, she starts screaming.  I do admit that we still have her in a crib and are about to transition to a "big girl" bed and I am trying to use that as motivation to go to bed nicely (because big girls don't cry, sound familiar?)  I don't know.  Got my 1-2-3 Magic book out but feeling a bit unsure of what to do next.  Love thoughts and ideas.

Hope this finds you warm and happy.  It's finally March, yeah!
