Mom of two, wife of one and I drive a minivan. I believe parenting is about being there for your kids. Then blogging about them when they walk away.
I’m like the Tina Fey and Laura Ingalls of the PTA. I’m a goody-two shoes wrapped in a gooey layer of sarcasm, inappropriateness, and goofball.
I’m 40. My kids are my life. Emma (11) and Owen (8). My husband James (42) is a VP of a start-up software company. I don’t work out of the home but I used to work in retail, cosmetics to be exact, and I was an executive assistant for a start-up company many moons ago.
I volunteer with the PTA in my children’s schools and I’m a member of Miracle House Guild with Seattle Children’s Hospital. I participate in many charity races and fundraisers for breast cancer, leukemia and pediatric brain cancer.
I’m a make up junkie, movie-buff and foodie. I also kind of enjoy shoes, handbags and fashion bargains. Vintage makes me a little giddy.
I really have no idea what I’m doing. Just putting my words together to make conversation, entertain and enlighten a little if I’m lucky!
Life is a banquet, and more people need to LIVE, LIVE, LIVE! That’s what Auntie Mame would say.
I pretty much like to think I’m starring in my own movie. It’s a movie in my head but I have a soundtrack and everything. I would also like to be in a music video, but I think my children would die of humiliation.
I’m just an all around perfectly balanced woman who really has a grasp on life, happiness and the universe. (This is where you learn my sarcasm.) I am the complete opposite of this. I’m happy most of the time (with medication), I never have enough time for all the lounging I want to do and I haven’t lost my baby weight yet. Yes, my son is 8. Whatever.
I am not writing a book. I have never been published in anything. People ask me if I’m paid to blog. To my husbands dismay, I am not. I am willing though to take any contributions by way of makeup, skin care, or house cleaning. I’m not sure if that’s legal, but no one needs to know.
