At this point in the moving process, everything is a milestone. Like, the fact that today is my last day of work. It’s also my last Friday in Portland. And of course, the last weekend to eat and drink my way through the city. That’s probably the one part of the process that’s going extremely well. Packing and saying goodbyes? Sooo much more difficult. On that note, I’d better get back to it. But I’ll leave you with some of the crazy things I saw online this week. Happy aloha friday!  Continue reading

Here’s the truth about four-day weeks: you’re still required to squeeze five-days’ worth of work in. So I don’t know about you, but I’m so ready for the weekend. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining. The three-day weekend was really lovely. I spent a few days at the Oregon coast with friends, which involved barefoot walks on the beach, long games of Cards Against Humanity, wine in plastic cups, and sleeping on the top bunk. All in all a phenomenal little get away. My saving grace coming back to reality this week was that the internet was full of hilarious things. Here’s a glimpse at some of the things that kept me going. I hope they help you get through, too.

Happy Friday! Continue reading

This week was a total bust. I realized that Amazon Prime comes with free live streaming video rentals, and I’ve watched the first 4 seasons of Parenthood. I know (!!). I might need an intervention soon. Except, I’ve already planned out my weekend for season 5. And I’d love to get through that first. It’s been absolutely goooorgeous weather here in the Pacific Northwest this week, but the rain is headed back in starting tomorrow. Parenthood marathon and margaritas in the rain? Yessss.

It’s been total spring weather in Portland. It poured most of the day yesterday, but we’ve seen glimpses of the sun sporadically, too. When it peaks through our windows, Lola’s always the first to chase down the sunny spot. I’m usually not far behind her.

Sometimes it feels like a surprise that Friday’s come so soon. This is not one of those weeks. From a heavy work load to scrambling to get taxes done, this week was all around nutty. TGIF!  Continue reading

I woke up today to sunshine and a gorgeous view of the ocean. And no, I’m not in Portland right now. Some of you may remember that I have a day job managing social media marketing for a fitness company, and I’ve been in San Diego for a conference. If I’ve learned one thing here, it’s that social media geeks really are the best. Besides learning from some of the world’s best social media marketers, I’m met a ton of great contacts – and even gotten to see – and taste – a little bit of San Diego. This is such a gorgeous city. Definitely on the list of places I could live one day.  Continue reading

This weekend I’m running a 15K race. It’s not necessarily the 9-point-something miles that scares me, but the hills  – which cover the course and are apparently pretty brutal. Last night Sam said, “What’s the big deal? You ran a half!” to which I wanted to smack him. But I didn’t. See, the half marathon was 3 months ago. And I was training like crazy. Way more than I’ve been running lately. So if there’s radio silence from me next week, it’s safe to assume I’m in bed, covered in ice and band aids.  In the meantime, here’s a look at some of the links that made me happy this week!

It’s time for another Aloha Friday post. But first, I had to share a photo from a mini vacation we took last weekend. We stayed in a quaint cabin in Washington and spent 2 days looking out at this view. I wish we were still there. It wasn’t warm or sunny, but it sure was a magical spot.

I’m starting a new weekly column I call Aloha Friday – so make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss ’em.

Here’s the deal. Between my day job and my blogging, I spend waaay too much time online each day. So naturally I see some really awesome stuff (and lots of really strange stuff, too).

Aloha Friday is all about saying aloha (goodbye) to the week, and aloha (hello) to the weekend. So let’s kick it off with a glimpse at the best of the internet lately. Continue reading
