Mom 2.0 & Dry Shampoo

We recently presented on podcasting at the Mom 2.0 Summit in Scottsdale, and we’re finally catching our breath to debrief. Hear all about our awkward moments, the cool people we met, and how it went.

We also recorded this on Mother’s Day (Erica’s first), so cheers to all the mamas out there! Have yourself a mojito.

Kiwi Lime Mojito
adapted from Joy the Baker (love ya, JTB)

In each glass, muddle two lime wedges, two slices of kiwi and a few torn mint leaves. Add ice to each glass along with a shot of mint simple syrup* and a shot to a shot and a half of rum. Top with sparkling water or lime La Croix (how do you say it?). Stir, sip and enjoy.

In current obsessions, Erica is cracking up over Silicon Valley on HBO and is pre-obsessed over Seinfeld coming to Hulu this summer! Kelsey

In neighborhood news, we are happy to report on the success of the corner bakery, neighbor baby is having a rough week, and one neighbor has made an unfortunate paint color choice.

  7. Oh my gosh, I was laughing out loud about the dry shampoo encounter, and the hair product as lotion!! Too funny! Kelsey, I can see why dry shampoo wouldn’t make sense to you, as someone who washes their hair everyday to ‘make it look better’. I am the opposite. My hair is poufy and frizzy and out of control right after it is washed, and tames down over a day or 2… so I just use dry shampoo to make my roots look not as oily, and touch up the bottom parts of my hair with my straightener if I have to (usually just a 5 minute touch up). Loved the episode, as always 🙂

    The dry shampoo story may be my new favorite Girl Next Door Podcast moment, laughed so hard. Also, Kelsey, your speaking of French and then immediate whispering into the mic was so very Molly Wizenberg! Love it.

  15. Erica and Kelsey: I am so lamely late to seeing this! Thank you so much for the mention. In fact, the reason I’m here is specifically to thank you for your incredible session, which, I have to say, was one of the best I’ve ever been to. Thanks in part to the amazing resources you put together, my first podcast, with my dear friend/co-author Christine Koh, is LIVE. http://www.parenthacks.com/2015/08/edit-your-life-episode-1.html
    You two are fabulous. Truly inspiring!
