More On Mommy Blogs

Maria Bailey, who helped pull together our Disney trip and hung out with us the whole weekend, was on the Today show being interviewed about the power of mommy blogs. Very cool! They messed up and didn't have her name below her interview, but she is the one who says, "We call it word of mom." She is a very cool chick and is one of the people I wish I had had more time with during that whirlwind weekend.

Want to watch the clip? Go here.

And just for the record, I don't have any ads on my blog (as you can see), nor do I profit from it in any way-- other than the occasional trip to Disney, of course! Well, and the pleasure of getting to know so many of you and experience the camaraderie of sharing our lives with each other. (Insert a great big giant studio audience "Awwww" right here.) Anyway, we are not planning to have Curt come home from his job so he can help me run this blog. But I will admit that does sound pretty cool. At times.

Other times that sounds like a whole lot of togetherness.

Ok, off to take some cold medicine, eat some Chick fil a chicken soup, and go back into hibernation mode. I leave tomorrow to head to Durham, NC to speak at a mother/daughter luncheon on modesty on Saturday. For those of you who "knew me when," you can attest that this is something only God could do. To have me speak to women about modesty. Of course, that's exactly how I am going to start off my talk-- just sharing how immodest I used to be-- and what was going through my head during that time in my life. Ie, college. Ie, before the six babies. Now being modest isn't just a choice, it's a public service.
Pin It!

Oh my gosh! You're going to be in my city! Oh if I only knew which church :) I'd crash the party (ROFL)

I know exactly what you mean about not having ads and such. I don't on mine and hubby is definitely going to have to keep his day job ;)

D'uh! I checked your "Where I'll Be" link and found out where you'll be -- and I can't believe I haven't heard about this! I've got a few friends who go to that church :D Maybe I will crash in!

A public service... SNORT!

I hope you feel better tomorrow.

That public service comment is simply hilarious! I'll never look at modesty quite the same :)

Just stopping by to say Happy Mother's Day!

I would post a comment, but I'm laughing too hard from the public service quip!

Even Rick is laughing hysterically after I read it out loud.

Love you ~ Rachel
