Welcome! I’m a 46-year-old Nashville working mom who loves social media, fashion, travel, rescue dogs, and a glass of wine or margarita on the rocks (preferably on the beach.) I launched my blog in 2005. My first tagline was Blogging Between Deadlines and Diapers Changes and my blog has evolved from one of the first mom blogs to more of a lifestyle blog. Like you, I try to juggle it all – work, motherhood, marriage, carpooling, homework and hormones.
I have two amazing daughters, Miss C and Miss A. Miss C has played travel soccer for years and is going to be in HIGH SCHOOL this fall (I can’t believe we have a high schooler in the house!) and Miss A plays the bassoon and just made middle school cheer squad. They both occasionally help me with blog reviews, such as tween fashion trends or reviewing fun things to do with teens.
Although we live in the suburbs, I’m a country girl at heart. I had pet chickens, read lots of Nancy Drew and couldn’t wait to get my driver’s license so I could cruise “town” with my friends. I’m a Leo, barely 5 ft. 2, and afraid of heights and opening cans of biscuits. I met my husband in high school and he puts up with my many blonde moments, hence my blog’s name. I am not glamorous or a bimbo.
I blog about everything from parenting to our beloved mutts to whatever else tickles my fancy, such as fashion finds and travel. I’m definitely not at a perfect mom or Martha Stewart. You’ll find more dog hair than DIY at our house!
I enjoy partnering with brands and I reach an audience of moms who wield some major purchasing power! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a sponsored post.
As a professional blogger I’ve been fortunate to collaborate with national brands and have been invited attend several blogger events:
I love to share our family travel experiences and have reviewed fantastic destinations such as the Westin and Sheraton in gorgeous Los Cabos, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort and St. Augustine, Florida, my husband’s old stomping grounds. We’ve also enjoyed local Tennessee travel experiences perfect for tweens and teens, such as Wilderness at the Smokies and Gatlinburg Falls Resort. Last fall we traveled to Orange Beach, Alabama, for the first time and fell in love with the area. I recently returned to write about a girlfriends’ getaway experience.
Social media? I am a fan girl:

- Former featured blogger on the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt Wishing Well blog and monthly contributor to the ADS Security blog

I have a journalism degree from Western Kentucky University and I am the past prresident of Femcity Nashville. I have my own freelance consulting and content management business and recently joined the team at Brand Journalists as a franchise writer. I am a jeans, t-shirts, and flip flops kind of mom, although I once got my glamour girl on in Beverly Hills.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
