Yow Yow! Off Duty

I meant to write this post before I left, but then time got ahead of me and I completely forgot altogether. There haven’t been any posts this week because I’ve been hard at work with my day job and traveling for the first time with my company. I don’t talk about what it is that I do on Yow Yow! because I generally like to keep my blog life and my work life separate. However, I will say that I work in recruiting and I attended the Grace Hopper Conference in Phoenix this week celebrating women in tech!

It was the first time that I had ever been to anything like this and I found it to be not only a really positive event, but truly inspiring. It’s incredible to be amongst many talented women each expressing their passion for tech and striving for success for themselves. The conference is filled with sessions and talks throughout the couple of days, but also a career fair every day for three days. It was the most exhausting thing that I have ever been a part of, but I loved telling people what we do and seeing people come to our booth to let us know how much they love our product!

I also happened to collect the most swag that I have ever obtained at an event. It was awesome. Pouring it all out when I got home felt like Christmas. A very tech Christmas.

So my job is at its peak season currently which means Yow Yow! posts will be few and far between unfortunately. I didn’t receive a press pass for Treasure Island next weekend and am realizing now how tough it is to build up Yow Yow! in the Bay with a full time job. I think I’ve always known that. I wish I could have both, but I am very fortunate and lucky to have my job and I wouldn’t choose to have it any other way.

Yow Yow! Visits Molly Moon’s!

During my last visit to Seattle, I had an opportunity to visit the office of Molly Moon’s ice cream shop! The invitation for the trip was not only humbling for me as I learned that Molly Moon herself is a Yow Yow! reader, but also very special to me as Molly Moon’s opened up shop in Capitol Hill while I was a student at Seattle University. I still remember just how excited I was to be having an ice cream shop down the street from my dorm. It was frequented by my friends and I for my entire four years there and oh gosh – that smell of their freshly made waffle cones – how could anyone forget? It’s the kind of smell that you would want in your life every day if you could have it and actually – everyone that works at Molly Moon’s appears to be just that lucky!

Together, Veronica and I have visited a couple businesses within Seattle, but by far – Molly Moon’s was the most delicious. I was contacted by Emilia Arnold a couple of weeks before my return home and it just happened to work out that I could schedule a visit when I was in town. Before I had moved away, there was an empty space next to the ice cream shop. For a long time, there was some speculation that it might be a place where you get an inside look at how they were making their ice cream and cones – kind of like a Willy Wonka type of a shop. I later learned that the space was transformed into an amazing office space for their employees. Just see for yourself!

I can’t believe I still enjoy these movies, but Liam Neeson is just too good.

Wedding Mondays

Happy Wedding Mondays everyone! I’m getting to that point in my life where weddings are not just something that I seek out on my own because I love them. I’m getting to this age where it starts to become my entire newsfeed. I mean, I don’t hate it though. My manager once told me that people love seeing these stories pop up and that’s why when someone gets into a relationship or gets engaged or married, they have a gazillion likes and are always at the top of your newsfeed as a top story.

Today’s Monday has been a rollercoaster ride of emotions so if you’re looking for something that might make you tear up a bit, this wedding video will most likely be IT. I’ve never been a huge fan of speeches at weddings because sometimes I don’t find them funny or I just think they drag on a bit. When my friend got married this past month, her younger sister made an amazing toast and this one reminded me of that.

Ariana Grande’s Performance on SNL

This was her first time performing “Love Me Harder” live on TV and it was nice to see The Weeknd join her for it. This is slated to be her next single released. Also The Weeknd totally outshines her on this performance. It feels like she’s really holding back and relying on the backing track for most of this song except for a few rifts.

I also loved how she started out with “Break Free” and was hoping that she would almost continue doing the whole song in this arrangement. Was it just me or did it seem like she was really tired when the song started picking up and she had to mildly dance along to it?
