Welcome to my corner of the Internet! I’m a Nashville working mom who loves social media, fashion, travel, and a margarita on the rocks (preferably on the beach.) I launched my blog in 2005 when my younger daughter was in diapers. My first tagline was Blogging Between Deadlines and Diapers Changes but over the years 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, car pooling, sports practices, science projects, and hormones.


I have two amazing daughters, Miss C and Miss A. Miss C has played soccer for years and just joined her middle school track team and Miss A is an avid reader, plays the piano, and is an aspiring writer.

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, from pop culture to poop. I struggle to find 5 minutes of peace and quiet that don’t involve sitting on, or cleaning, a toilet. I’m definitely not at a perfect mom or Martha Stewart. You’ll find more dog hair than DIY at our house!


Tybee IslandMe and my wonderful family on vacation in Tybee Island, Georgia.

I enjoy sharing our family travel experiences and have reviewed fantastic destinations such as the Westin and Sheraton in gorgeous Los CabosSandestin Golf and Beach Resort, and St. Augustine, Florida, my husband’s old stomping grounds. This year we’ve been focusing on local travel, with a recent trip to Wilderness at the Smokies and a summer trip planned for Gatlinburg.

    Your husband tells me that you are adept at WordPress. Our website need some corrections (i.e. links that link to nowhere) as well as a few changes I would like to make with that is just text oriented. I have been on our admin site and have managed to do the simple text corrections in the body of the pages but it is the template that I cannot figure out how to do.

    If you were interested in working on these with us, how much would you need per hour?

    I hope we can work something out.

    Thanks, Susie Dudley

    Hey Jamie,

    Remember those cute t-shirts at Apricot Lane on Highway 100 … before it moved/closed? The ones with the sewn-on appliques such as a cross, flower, peace sign, etc.? Have you written about – or remember – the local mom who makes these? I wore one to a soccer game last weekend and I was mobbed by fellow moms who wanted one. I didn’t know where to send them but thought you might remember them – or know.

    Have a great weekend …

    About Zipit Bedding
     
    As any mom knows, sheets, blankets and comforters are easily entangled and hard to keep neat. ButZipit BeddingTM connects a Fitted Sheet and Comforter via ZIPPERS to form ONE EASY-TO-USE unit (just like a sleeping bag). Now the daily chore of making and changing a bed is FUN, FAST & EASY.
    
What Moms are Saying about Zipit BeddingTM:
    
”The magic comes when you make the bed and see how easy it is that anyone can do it! Just zip and go! I think Zipit Bedding has really found the perfect thickness for the comforter that works for varying temperatures. I really like the designer print too. It doesn’t scream “little kids ONLY” and it’s sophisticated enough I think teenagers and adults would be okay with it too.” -Ashley Reynolds, mommy blogger (thereynoldsmom.blogspot.com)
    
“This product has changed our lives…Honestly the inventor of this should win an award for helping me regain my sanity when it comes to making and changing all my kids beds. I love it for how easy it is to change, and my 3-year-old likes it best of all now that he feels like a big boy that he can make his own bed. I will be telling all my friends about this.” - Carrie, AZ - working mother of two

“Zipit Bedding is such a brilliant idea! My kids’ beds were ALWAYS a mess in the morning – and they were constantly asking me to fix their beds so they can sleep comfortably. Whenever I told them to just do it themselves, they always said “I can’t do it as good as you!” Now, thanks to Zipit Bedding, they CAN do it themselves, just as good as I would. And it’s EASY!! Thank you, ZIPIT Bedding for making it easier for my kids (and me!).”- Lisa, CA, wife and working mother of two

    The Story of Zipit Bedding
    
Zipit BeddingTM began when Jennifer MacDonald, a mom and a veteran in the advertising industry, had an “Aha!” moment as she watched her sons clean up their room after a sleepover by simply zipping up their sleeping bags and voila!... the once messy bedroom was clean! She realized immediately that a zippered bedding unit – as simple as a sleeping bag, yet designed to fit a mattress and look like normal bedding – would revolutionize the bedding industry.
     
    Jennifer teamed up with her sister Hayley Carr, a seasoned entrepreneur, and the two developed the product. They were later joined by Paul Lauer, the CEO of a successful entertainment marketing company, who contacted them after having a similar idea.
     
    Together, Jennifer, Hayley and Paul are launching the Zipit BeddingTM revolution.

Married to my high school sweetheart-27 years now and a country girl at heart:). Sorry if that’s TMI but what are the odds? Reach out to me by email if a product review is in line with your blog.
