Meet The Writer

Hello everyone! Hope you're enjoying my site and everything it has to offer. Now a little about me. 

I'm a stay-at-home mom to 4 awesome kids. My life is crazy and chaotic, yet I wouldn't have it any other way. 

When I'm not chasing an energetic toddler around, I enjoy short walks to the bathroom alone, midnight snacks, slamming back coffee, and a good read. 

My hobbies include endlessly picking shit up off the floor, completing bullshit last minute school projects, and making sure my optimistic self stays up to par by saying "fuck it all" at least 5 times daily. 

I manage to stay in shape by strolling to the fridge and making snacks every 10 minutes with a screaming toddler clinging to my leg like he's about to die from starvation. 

When guests are over, I like to keep it real by showing them to my bathroom and telling them "this is where I come to eat cookies and cry" when I go batshit crazy.

They don't visit much afterwards...
