Workout Shorts with a Phone Pocket

I love Athleta clothes. But I don’t always want to pay that much money, especially for something I’m going to wear for maybe an hour. But if I go for a hike, or the morning dog walk, I want a pocket for my phone. These shorts deliver on all fronts: Price, comfort, pocket. Amazon, $19.

Self-employment: Is that where the teen workforce went?

I’m self-employed. Have been since my teenage daughter was a baby. I blame her for pushing me out of the nine-to-five. But I also thank her for it. Working for myself is amazing. I will never go back to a full-time, on site job. I have too many side interests, too much freedom, too much control. I am not alone, according…

Get that Kid a Game that Teaches Coding!

  I’m the game geek here at Geek Girlfriends.  Teaching kids coding through games is all the rage this year and the //CODE Programming Game Series by the folks at Thinkfun are designed to do exactly that.
