You wish you worked here

January 21st 2010 by Jen in Uncategorized 0

Check it out!  Zappos.com ranked #15 in Fortune’s 2010 “100 Best Companies to Work For“!  I’d say that’s a pretty amazing feat considering that 1) Zappos has only been around since 1999, 2) we’re still pretty small with less than 2k employees, 3) and it’s not a great economy (to put it politely).

And when you have turned back

Saturday’s Amishness

September 30th 2009 by Jen in Uncategorized 0

We had Amish Saturday this past weekend and it was great! What a wonderful time to relax and converse together and to be convicted about our reliance on modern technology and media. Here’s what we did: – I got up with Dinah and gave Dan another hour of sleep – We had a quiet breakfast [...]

Birthday Boy!

June 25th 2009 by Jen in Uncategorized 1

Monday, June 22 was Dan’s 28th birthday!!!  He woke up to a bowl of Happy Birthday Raisin Bran, a birthday card, a living obituary (yes, I wrote him an obituary for his birthday), a gift, and a sweet baby experiencing her first birthday party (albeit a very small one).  We sang and told Dan how [...]

Four way stops

February 13th 2009 by Jen in Uncategorized 0

This is a funny blog post about four way stops.  If you’ve ever ridden with Dan or me, you know it’s a blessing that we have a year before Dinah can talk during which to teach ourselves to stop yelling at the other drivers. HT: What’s Best Next

28 on the 28th!!!

November 28th 2008 by Dan in Uncategorized 0

A birthday poem I write for my mate Today she has turned twenty and eight She deserves more than candles and cakes And since she’s pregnant raised are the stakes I must do something that’s romantic But that isn’t overly dramantic Me in a costume complete with a saber If I did that she’d begin [...]

Left-handedness and 120 Tater Tots

August 14th 2008 by Dan in Uncategorized 2

It all started over three years ago not too long after Jen and I had gotten engaged. We were at a friend’s wedding in southern Missouri. Jen and a friend of our’s, Dani Kuntz, were going to get something to eat while Dave (Dani’s husband) and I hung out at the church to get ready [...]

Grandma Tour 2008

August 6th 2008 by Jen in Uncategorized 0

We recently had a wonderful opportunity to travel around the midwest visiting relatives that we pretty much never get to see.  Please don’t think from my title that I’m being sarcastic or offensive: quite literally, we saw all but one of our grandmothers and it was a great time! It all started with Dan’s great-grandmother’s [...]

She’s Quite the Little Gymnast

August 5th 2008 by Jen in Uncategorized 5

OK, I’m pretending that today is 7/11 instead of 8/5. That’s right, SHE is quite the little gymnast.  Today at our ultrasound, we learned not only that our baby is a girl, but also that she’s quite active.  She was flipping all around, waving her hands, moving her legs, and poking her little behind out [...]

Zappos on Nightline

July 8th 2008 by Jen in Uncategorized 3

If you don’t know, I’m a software developer for Zappos.com, an internet retailer of shoes, apparel, accessories, electronics, etc.  Their headquarters are in Las Vegas and their warehouse is just south of Shepherdsville, KY, which is where I work.  It’s my favorite job so far and that’s mainly because of the great company culture and [...]
