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 October 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 plays travel soccer and is active in Girl Scouts and Miss A is an avid reader and aspiring writer.
Although we live in the suburbs of Nashville, 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. Speaking of 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.
As a professional blogger I’ve been fortunate to work with several national brands and have been invited attend several blogger events:
I enjoy sharing 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.
