We have been desperately trying to rehome one of our dogs due to them not getting along. Separately they are both sweet girls.

There was a surprise Tumblr summit in Hood River, Oregon. We’re calling it #mom40.5 also known as Molly’s surprise birthday. Mediocre Mommy and The Price 7 were there and there was lots of panelists and breakout sesh’s and whatnot.

Lots of whatnot.
