Moxie Mona hits the DC 'Burbs - horse poop and all

Some blog friends of mine have started a new company (it's the cool, hip thing to do these days) called Moxie Media. To celebrate, I had the opportunity to take their mascot, Moxie Mona, around the burbs of DC so she can see we're not all politics.

First we grabbed our towels and caught some rays at the pool because while Mona was looking snazzy in her superhero outfit, she needed a little color to cut back on the glare.

 

Then, we had Mona with us as we braved the big outdoors....of our backyard. We're not used to roughing it here.

 

Mona didn't flinch when I took her on my commute around the deathtrap Capital Beltway, also named The Inner and Outer loop to confuse tourists. Legend has it there's a family from Upstate New York that has been driving the loop going on 5 years.

 

Finally, Mona got to see first-hand how DC area folk love their horses. From the racetracks at Laurel and Pimlico (where the Preakness is run) to the hunt races in Potomac, MD and Middleburg, VA, Mona got to smell what really keeps DC politics moving...large piles of money poop.

 

We had a great visit with Mona and wish all the Moxie Girls good luck in their new adventure

Miley Cyrus isn't the only one with 7 things

Sorry, you have to have 5 year old girls, and specifically girls who love Radio Disney to know the Miley Cyrus song "7 Things" so I hope that title didn't lose you.

But it's appropriate because The Coupon Coup tagged me with a meme called Seven Things.

So here are the 7 things about me:
1. I know all the words to Don McLean's American Pie

2. I've always wanted to join Stacy & Clinton's as the third Style Guru on TLC's What Not to Wear

3. I didn't have a middle name until I got married.

4. I hate spiders but ALWAYS put on a brave face and play it cool for the benefit of my kids when there is one in the house.

5. Our 2 cats are named after Grateful Dead songs

6. I've been inside the Pyramids in Egypt and all I could think about was how hot and stinky it was, but I was floored by the devotion I witnessed in India.

7. I was an extra in an episode of Sex & the City.

Here are the people I'm tagging:

Kitrona
MV On the Spot
This Military Mama
The Neurotic Mom
Life on the Run
JerseyMomma
MamaDivas

Let me know your 7 things in a comment and then check back to see who else left some!

Ask and ye shall receive

I have been very busy NOT blogging. I wouldn't say I had writer's block, but I was definitely more consumed with twitter, work, planning a holiday shopping bazaar, and keeping up (actually falling behind) on 15 Days of Marketing homework.

Tonight I decided I MUST write a few blog posts for the week ahead. What good is a blog if I don't update it? So when @Robyn of Robyn's Online World sent a tweet asking if anyone wanted a meme I jumped at the chance! Sometimes you just need a little fire under your butt to get the blog posts going and a meme works for me.

Ah - be careful what you wish for! Because minutes after replying to Robyn I checked my email and found I had already been tagged by someone else for another meme!

So now I have twice the inspiration to write posts about my all-time favorite subject...ME!

Today's will be the shout-back to Robyn. Later this week I'll post the other one. But with both, you're going to learn all kinds of juicy things including....my REAL name!

3. Getting up every day at 5:00 am and heading to the gym before going to work (wish I kept that up)
4. Going to happy hour every-other day (an estimation)
