About This Blog

About this Blog

Looking for puppy’s breath and baby kisses? Move along please.

Want a laugh? Then you’re in the right place. Welcome. Hang out with me. Be my new bestie! My weekly blog is about anything and everything: From why I haven’t gone to the bathroom without an audience in 8 years, my kids, or my not-so-secret romance with Peanut M&M’s. You just never know. Give me a spin because I was totally serious about the bestie thing. (Eyes on you)

I have two boys, ages 6 and 8, an incredibly fat Labradoodle dog and a hot, bald husband. Clowns, bees, hyper-aggressive people and mimes weird me out. Cooking, the smell of a campfire and everything from the 70s and 80s make me all gushy and melty inside. My favorite words are: shenanigans, snarky and trebuchet. And I strongly suspect, now that it’s out there, that I’m a total geek because I actually admit to having favorite words. Sigh.

If you’re not into a weekly commitment (I mean seriously, we just met), my award-winning syndicated plain jane column runs every month in Central Penn Parent magazine. Oh, and before I forget, I have a website and I’m on Twitter and Facebook. So stalk, follow and friend me ASAP!
