Next week I’ll be in NYC for the Brooklyn Beta conference! I’m so excited and I wanted to see whether I could run a meetup but I’m not sure I have time. Though if you want to grab coffee or lunch, ping me!

Happy Friday – News and Article Roundup for the Week!

Dog rescue complete! I drove up to Oregon (11 hour drive) to rescue my grandparent’s dog, who was adopted and then de-adopted and taken to the shelter instead. Quite an interesting few days — I started driving at 4:45am, got Molly, camped that night on the Oregon/California border, drove through the redwoods the next morning, and then I left my wallet at a farmstand and didn’t realize until 87 miles later. Not to mention, I only realized it when I was pulling over for gas. Quite… annoying.

But wallet was still there, I didn’t run out of gas driving back up (all panicky, making plans to barter the beer in my trunk for gas money if I needed), and I got home safely in the end.

So that was my week — how was yours? :P

Friday Roundup of Links and News!

I’ve had an interesting week — my grandparent’s are moving into assisted living across the country, and a neighbor adopted their dog… and then promptly decided they couldn’t keep her and abandoned her at a shelter instead. So next week I’ll be driving up 11 hours to go get her.

So, guess as of next week, I’ll have a dog to go along with my kitty!

Goodness, is anyone else as tired as I am? It’s been a crazy week! My birthday was on Monday (woohoo!) and then just all sorts of random things happened (so I might be getting a dog soon…)

Yay for weekends!

Happy Friday! The Roundup of the Week’s News and Fun

Such a late day today after a week of being late — Julia and I were in Washington D.C. for DjangoCon, a programming conference! Big thanks to PyLadies for sponsoring us and sending us out — women programmers are a rarity and we were so proud to help represent. Not to mention that Julia gave a talk of her own about the challenges she faced when joining WeddingLovely, see her slides here!

Happy Friday! Your Weekly Roundup

Can you believe it’s almost the end of summer? For me, the transition is always my birthday (coming up in 1.5 weeks). Funny how when you’re younger, you can’t wait for a birthday, but now, another birthday is another year gone and summer over. BUT it’s also another year to come, autumn tea and soup, and playing in the snow. So I better perk up already!

My tomato harvest TWO years ago. This year, all of my blossoms died in the hot temperature. It’s been the saddest tomato summer ever.

The week’s roundup of news and fun things:

I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend — we’ll be back on Tuesday!

Happy weekend! Your Friday roundup

I’m heading off to my cabin for a mini-weekend getaway, after a tough and very, very busy few weeks. You wouldn’t believe how excited that I am that I’m replacing the tiny, terrible coffee maker at my cabin with a new fancy one — it’s the little things in life!

Fun stuff from the week:

Have a lovely weekend, and see you on Monday!

It’s Friday + Wedding Filled Weekend

Four words: thank goodness it’s Friday! Julia and I are both headed to weddings this weekend. While she’ll be in San Francisco, I’m headed to Mammoth Lakes for a lovely mountain wedding. I can’t wait to see how all my friends planning (and my help with the details!) all comes together. How about you, what are you doing this weekend?
