Stuff to like about today: learned social media stuff, lunched on Newbury Street and engaged in a little retail therapy to finish things off. Now if only dinner would make itself.

Today we had a great meeting of The Coffee Shop Bloggers but instead of the usual L’Aroma in Newton, we headed into town and met at the Newbury Street location. Now, you are thinking, get out much? Umm…no, not really and we like this place and the owners and the food. Great vibe and even better people watching.

We had the meeting in Boston so that we could get a tutorial from a friend who is a TweetDeck  and overall social media expert (actually there were two social media savvy individuals in attendence – my, aren’t we impressive?) but you are asking what the heck  is TweetDeck?  It is a way to manage your Twitter account(s) and connect them to FaceBook and LinkedIn.  As we are in varying stages of using TweetDeck and social media,  our questions were all over the map (plus we all talk over each other anyway) and I think we exhausted our guest speaker. That’s okay, he’s young and will probably recover quickly.

We were on Newbury Street so a few of us accidently fell into Jonathan Adler. Love that store!  Gorgeous, whimsical and fun. jonathan adler mother child pillow from capability momjonathan adler table from capability mom The small picture is of  the Mother Child pillow (it comes in other colors) – so sweet and the table is just gorgeous – a lacquer tray table that would look amazing in my family room.

Design Track Mind’s Melissa Gulley was there and is super fun to shop with – she has such a great eye – Pragmatic Mom and I want to steal her for a day (or two) and make her, I mean, ask her nicely if she would like to, shop with us. The sales people in the store were friendly and helpful and we walked out with a pillow, a heart locket key chain and the most adorable sticky notes ever.

Jonathan Adler has just introduced Jonathan Adler Junior, a line for babies and children. So so sweet and fun, great furniture, wallpaper, rugs and more. This chair is super sweet and there is an adorable kissing giraffe rug that I love.jonathan adler junior from capability mom

  1. That was fun wasn’t it?!!! We have to do this again with more pit stops into shops with http://designtrackmind.com ; she knows the best places to shop!

  2. I’m thinkin’ you should share your new found knowledge for the rest of us poor things that didn’t get to have lunch. I’m sure my invite was lost in the mail or something. ;)

    Stopping over from blogfrog.
