at least 12 of my 15 minutes

Where I will be

Today at three:

In front of a TV.

Why, you say?

What’s on today?

Well, my friend A.

On local ABC

Right around 3

She’ll talk all things bloggy

And she might…

She just might…

Mention this site.



Squeeee! I’m so excited, I could write a poem!

In rhyming verse!

O wait.

Amanda has blogged about today’s show here, and while she’s not exactly sure what the producers will have time to air or how they will edit it, she was asked to pick 3 local (twin cities) blogs that she enjoys for her segment, and O My Family made her list.

I know I will be glued to the TV from 3:00 to 3:45 today, but I also know that many of you aren’t local (HI DAD!), so after the station posts it on their site, I will link to the video of the show here. No matter which way they edit the segment (read: whether O My Family is mentioned or not), I will certainly put the link up because Amanda is one awesome lady (have you SEEN her cakes?) and it will totally be worth watching.

    That is so cool!!! I love Amanda’s cakes and cookies too. Whenever I see them I always want to start baking RIGHT AWAY. :)

    This is a totally post-unrelated question, but do you have any suggestions for a good but inexpensive baby carrier for babies around 9 monthsish? I think I like the sling/wrap-around kind over the older styles where the baby just sits in the little seat in the front. Thank you! :)

      Hi Sarah,

      Since I don’t yet have a 9 monthsish baby, I can’t speak from experience, but I can tell you that the wonderful Steph of Adventures in Babywearing had her littlest one in a mei tai type carrier at Cupcake ’10. It is someting reminescent of a baby bjorn, but less backpacky, more fabricy. Hope that helps!

    Hey girl!! Thanks so much for being an amazing mom and wife and blogger… you are an inspiration!! I am sorry those mean ole producers thought they should put on PW instead of you… like she needs more publicity! I just want you to know I am proud of you and all you have done and accomplished and look forward to your blog everyday!

      O don’t you even worry your little heart about it! I really, REALLY was absolutely in awe to have been thought of by you. I’m still not over how cool it was that you were on there representing the TC mommy bloggers. So awesome.

    How cool! So did you watch and did they edit in the mention of O My Family. I definitely think you are a blog worth mentioning.

      They ended up ‘suggesting’ that she talk about 2 bigger bloggers, and that’s quite alright with me! Amanda was so fun to watch!
