Type-A Parent Conference 2013 Ticket Giveaway

In the past few years, there has been a proliferation of new blogging, social media, and digital marketing conferences. Some have a focus on people who work in agencies, some are for bloggers starting out, and others are for coding and analytics geeks. Although I’ve found value in all of the conferences I’ve attended, I’ve […]

Another Moving Fiasco: Part 4

Today is moving delivery day. Or it was supposed to be. Earlier this month, we decided to have the movers bring our stuff, despite the contract issues and having no idea how we’d pay the balance. I asked how quickly it could get there…Rob said cross-country transit usually takes 3-5 days (which to me is […]

Another Moving Fiasco : Part 2

Ah, the continuing moving saga of the Bullock family. Part one of the Atlanta moving fiasco is here. I was hoping that after two weeks I’d have more good news to report on the move, but we’re still in a stalemate. We’d hoped to have the issue resolved quickly, and to have our belongings delivered […]

Yet Another Moving Fiasco

We packed pretty creatively, so we haven’t been totally barren. Unfortunately, most of the clothes we brought with us were […]

London: Coming Home

We packed up our suitcases and checked out of our hotel around 10 am. We spent a little time in the Business Centre checking flight loads again, and coming up with more contingencies. We got a breakfast croissant at the kiosk in the Tube station, made with delicious ham and emmental cheese. We scrounged together […]

They’ll be returning Friday night for Taylor’s reserve shift on Saturday (yet another quick trip) As I drove home, I opened up the window to let the warm breeze in. It was sunny […]

Snow in the South

On Sunday, Georgia was slammed with a crazy winter storm. The weekend had been particularly rainy, converting around noon into a wintry mix, into a snow flurry. The snow was at its worst just as we ran out the door to church. Church was canceled after Sacrament Meeting, as well as all meetings for the […]

Bad Taste in my Mouth

We have been having a persistent ANT problem since we moved to Atlanta. Ants on the walls, ants in the toilet bowl, ants in our beds, ants on the windows. Our landlord has been working with the condo association to schedule a pest control company to come in, but it hasn’t happened yet. We’ve been […]

Why I Love Chick-fil-A

One of the unimportant, but beneficial nonetheless, deciding factors of me moving to Atlanta was access to the foods, restaurants and stores I love. Trader Joes…check! El Pollo Loco…check! IKEA…check! Ulta…check! Torrid…check! I was happy to discover that there are 76 locations of Chick-fil-A in the Atlanta Metro area. I’ve mentioned it here in there […]

It’s Been 10 Days

After my somewhat negative RANT post from yesterday, I thought I’d post an update on how life has been in our new home. We’re living as a family in our condo in Decatur. We had been staying at Clint’s house in Stone Mountain for about a week and felt like a grand imposition. We braved […]
