BEE Friends!

posted in: Guest Post Away 0 comments

Today, I’m over at Bees With Honey as I’m Bruna’s featured friend! YAY!!

Head on over to see whether I choose Keanu or Brad, who I think I was in my past life and what kinds of shoes I love! I even ask myself a question, as challenged by dear Bruna.

And if you’re here from Bees With Honey, hello! Nice to meet you and thank you for coming by. You might want to check out some of my favorite posts, if you have a little time:

This one is about why I love Twitter so much.

Bruna asks me about my past life as a PR gal – I think this rant about PR agencies prompted that!

Also? I draw. Badly. Example: this post which is the first in what will be a series of toddler tales.

Occasionally, I put the funny and ranting aside, and write about motherhood and how I’m yearning for another baby.

Thank you and have a good Friday and an awesome weekend!

p/s* Do you like my new look? I love it! Thank you and shout out to the fabulous Cynthia from NW Designs who created this look and did my migration from Blogger. 

Let's BEE Friends

    Big plans for 5 years!
    I can get fresh milk and eggs every day from just up the road. the kids see animals every day. They walk to school. I work from home. There’s good coffee and cake at 3 different cafes within 10 minutes walk of my house… (I live in NZ) but had never even considered this stuff as things others might aspire to/desire for. thanks for a good reminder of how awesome my home is!

    Love the new design! Lucky. I’m thinking about kicking Blogger to the curb, too, but I have no idea how to start.
    Loved your comment over on Iris’s post:”All my belly did was flop.” A-to-the-Men!

    • July 9, 2011 Alison

      Thank you! I hired someone to do the design and move the blog to WP at the same time (easier) and it was all good!!

      Hee hee, was just being honest with the belly comment 🙂
