    this was such a cute idea, i love that i can hear your kids in the background, lol, it shows you are a REAL mom, lol.

    i would be deathly embarassed to do this since i am too shy, so applause to you!

    as you know i love your blog, so i gave you the Kreative Blogger award ๐Ÿ˜‰
    it’s on my page,

    great job as always Shannon ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Great job! Sorry you had to do the mingle 7 times last week. NUTS!
    Late night sandwiches..sounds fun!
    thanks for joining in!

  3. VW Van! I love it! I can’t believe it was smoking….I would have freaked! I’m so glad you’re going to BlogHer! Putting RL faces with their blogs is the best thing ever.

    Wow – your multiple takes for your Monday MIngles sound like mine. lol I’m always interrupted by things as well.

    So jealous about Blogher! Eventually, I might get there and be able to meet you all in person. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Shannon!! It is so nice to see your face again! I was absolutely fascinated with this mingle…I didn’t know you got married in Oakland and had a honeymoon night in S.F. Very cool!

    Your van sounds pretty neat. I know you were heartbroken when you had to get rid of it. I laughed at your story though, and waving at the people flagging you down. I probably would have done the same thing “Oh hi!!”. LOL

    I am sorry you had to do so many takes. I do one…every time LOL. That is why you see the camera dropping, garbage truck noise in the background, etc. I hope things will go smoother the rest of the year for your mingles!

  6. OMG I love this monday mingle! It is awesome. And I too love hearing your kids inthe background. Sounds like my house! hahaha.

  7. I must admit, you are the brave one! I can’t mingle when my kids are active. I would go beserk because they would be fighting with eachother..

    I didn’t realize you live in Washington State! That’s about a 3 hour drive from me! No I have a kindred soul when I talk about all the rain ๐Ÿ™‚

    See ya next week!

  8. I really hope to get to Blogher this year. We’ll have to wait and see if the sponsors come through.

    The waving ‘hello” to someone who’s trying to get your attention totally happened to me once. I was on the expressway and someone waved at me. I thought they were possibly bad news so I ignored them. It turns out I was driving on a flat tire in the rear. I had no idea until I got home. Stupid, me. lol

    Great video Shannon!
    Congratulations on going to BlogHer-I’m so jealous of all of you who get to go ๐Ÿ˜€
    Although I can’t wait till I get to live vicariously though all of you through your posts. Lol

  10. Oh Shannon, I can’t believe you shot last week’s video 7 times and never used it! You crazy gal.

    Have I told you lately how jealous I am of your hair. Seriously, you should be on commercials for hair products.

    Sounds like it was a great van.

    I only have been to SF for BlogHer so I never saw much of the city… too busy. LOL

    I’m so glad you’re coming BlogHer in NY. I hope to go see the Statue of Liberty with you. (I’ve never been to NY before either.)

    My mingle is at—susan—jan-11th-2010

    Talk soon,

  11. Hoping to make it to BlogHer myself! Hope to meet you there!
