Here's what I'll be doing next week, what will you be doing?

I work as a writer for a technology company in Austin, Texas. I write letters, news releases, reports, articles, and other various marketing materials. Next week marks our annual user conference and man, am I busy! But it's all good, great, and grand: the amount of stuff I have the opportunity to learn is tremendous.

Specifically, I'm working on one summit at the conference that is all about green energy technology.

The NIWeek Energy Technology Summit - Transition to Sustainability is a technical conference of developers from both conventional and renewable energy sectors creating embedded hardware and software solutions to solve global energy problems.

I'll be joining Siemens Wind Power, IBM, CenterPoint Energy, Austin Energy, Pacific Gas & Electric, the National Renewable Energy Lab, venture capitalist and internet pioneer Robert Metcalfe and energy system designers from around the world in a technical event for and by engineers and scientists focused on making energy cleaner, cheaper and more abundant.

Pretty cool, huh? I'll be sure to share any new knowledge with you after the event.

Looks I Love Right Now

I've been meaning to blog about Madewell for a while. I first heard about Madewell when the brand originally launched because I worked at its sister store, J.Crew.

If you haven't stepped foot in a Madewell store yet or perused their website, you should. I like Madewell for it's easy, casual style with a few girly patterns, textures, and frills thrown in. I also appreciate that they sell jeans in European sizes and multiple lengths. (How lovely it is to be 5'9" and not have to order Tall lengths because the regular length is just half an inch too short.)

I own jeans from Madewell, pocket tees, button-front shirts, and a very sweet wool vest that zips up and has multiple pockets.

Here's the site:

And here's a few looks I love right now:

Enjoy. And let me know what you like.

I love Pixar's movie Up. The love story is genuine and the adventure is priceless. I made an Etsy treasury full of items that get to the heart of that story.

My Treasury

Check it out.
