Introduction I live in Chicago with my husband and our sons Bub (4.5) and Little Bit (2) and our baby girl Sweet P (5 months). I am the Queen of Good Intentions, not to brag, and this blog reflects the life I'm living--mothering, reading, eating, thinking, laughing, cleaning up messes, drinking DC, etc. NTB is about celebrating life's successes and stumbles, big and small, without taking myself too seriously.
Interests reading novels, listening to audiobooks, thinking about projects I want to complete, talking and reading about The Office, taking walks, eating and talking about food, improving my cooking
Favorite Movies Four Weddings and a Funeral, Pride and Prejudice (BBC version), Bridget Jones's Diary, School of Rock, About a Boy, I'm really more of a tv girl. Favorites include: The Office (US and UK), 30 Rock, Top Chef, The Biggest Loser, Glee, Community, Big Love, Entourage, and two shows gone but not forgotten--Gilmore Girls and Arrested Development
