Weekend Links

For Your Weekend Reading TMwM

I’m going out of town today, on my way to Bloggy Conference 2014 at Cedar Point, in Sandusky, Ohio. Since it’s at an amusement park, I decided to drag the hubs and the kid with me, for some weekend fun. If you’re on Twitter, be sure to follow the hashtag #BloggyCon14 to get in on all the fun.

Since I’ll be traveling this weekend, thought I’d share some links to keep you entertained.

In this super-busy world, I crave simplicity. When my days are chaotic, I feel off balance. Courtney Carver over at Be More with Less talks about 3 Ways to Streamline for Simpler Days.

In addition to my day job, blogging here and everyday life, I also like to write – both fiction and nonfiction. Paul Jarvis has some great tips on cultivating a writing routine.

I’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately. This post really spoke to me: 31 Days to Feeling Physically and Emotionally Lighter.

Another one from Paul Jarvis that I love… More Doing, Less Promoting: The Key to Creating Great Work.

Got any interesting reads to share?

I’ve Been a Busy Bree


Hello, friends. Long time, no blog. :)

It’s been a super-busy few weeks, in the Glenn household: I started a new job, my lovely mother in law came for a visit, and the kid and I attended a weekend-long family reunion. Needless to say, blogging kind of fell by the wayside. Luckily, things are slowing down a bit, so I’m hopeful that I’ll be back to blogging on a regular basis, soon.

In the meantime, here’s what’s been going on:

New Job: Getting acclimated to a new job is tough, time consuming and very rewarding. As I said, few weeks ago I started a new job as PR and marketing manager at an area hospital. For me, it was a bit like coming home, as I worked for a sister hospital several years ago. The saying, “you can’t go home again,” is for me, thankfully, a not true. I’m so glad to be here, and am having a wonderful time learning the ropes again.

Relatives Visiting: The hubster‘s mom came to visit for a couple of weeks. It was so good to see her, and even better to see how happy it made my husband to have her staying with us during her visit. Unfortunately, because of aforementioned new job, I didn’t get to spend a lot of time with her (or take any pictures).

Family Reunion: Every year, my extended family (on my mother’s side) has a three-day family reunion. This year was the 67th occurrence. Most years, the location varies, and this year it was here. I always love this time of year, because it means I get to see family I haven’t seen in a while, meet new family members, and spend time with my local family as well. And while being the host city means more work for us, it’s so worth it.

Now that things are getting back to normal, I excited to get back to posting here on The Mom with Moxie, as well as catching up on my blog reading.

I have a ton of post ideas and research done, and I can’t wait to share it with you. See you all real soon!

#LEGOKidsFest 2014


My most favorite thing about blogging, is the friends I’ve made. One such friend, Lauren from Mrs. Weber’s Neighborhood asked me if I would attend an event and write a review for her blog. Of course, I said yes.

A week ago, the kid, the hubs and I headed to the LEGO KidsFest. We had such an awesome time. There was something for everyone, even if you aren’t a LEGO fan.

Head over to Mrs. Weber’s Neighorhood to read all about it.
