Big News!

So, I’ve been a bit MIA as of late. Why? Well, mainly because not one single day in the last four weeks has gone by when all nine of us were feeling the best. Croup, the stomach flu, appendicitis, bronchitis, colds, coughs, and more of the flu seem to go ’round and ’round in this family. While we haven’t all been sick at once, it’s just exhausting.

But, enough about that. We have some big news to share! Ray has started his own PR firm —

He has already been very busy with clients, he has created his website, set up his Facebook page and Twitter profile, and has even started blogging! He should be in his new office space any day and may even have to hire an associate soon. He’s serious, folks!

Oh, and there’s more. I have been dubbed Razor Sharp’s Social Media Director. I couldn’t be more excited to work with my best friend in a larger capacity professionally. Now, this doesn’t mean anything will change here at From Dates to Diapers… I will continue to make my mark in the mom blogging world. I just get to officially work in both worlds now.

If only everyone would start feeling better, so I can get back to workWait, nevermind… I’ve been working pretty hard at the best job ever. Other work can wait.

Disney Social Media Moms Celebration

I am still recovering from a magical time in sunny freezing-cold Florida at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, aka #DisneySMMoms… Home with my kiddos has never been so sweet!

Being one of the small percentage of moms attending the conference sans family (not by choice, mind you… I wish we could have afforded for all eight of us to spend a week at Disney World together), I was able to enjoy some fun girl-time with some of my fellow solo mom friends – Tara, Sue, Audrey, and so many more.

Plenty can be said about this fabulous conference/celebration, and I will get to all of that, but for now I hope you’ll enjoy a glimpse into my play time.

Disney Moms


I always regret not taking more pictures while with my friends at events like this… For more, check out the Disney Social Media Moms Flickr stream, a picture of two of my closest friends and me, and one of some lucky moms with Chris Brogan. Can you see Alyssa and Colin peeking from behind in that last one? Miss you already, girls!
