About me

Gender Female
Occupation stay at home mom of 6, babysit several others!
Location suburb of Chicago, Illinois
Introduction Mothering 6 kids with no small feet, I trip thru life over their monster-sized mislaid shoes, their nutty antics, and my unhealed scars as a middle child. Life is messy - I'd rather write about it than clean it up.
Interests shopping for good deals on nice clothes, laundry, baking, drawing, laughing, cooking, attending my kids' sporting events - especially water polo, basketball, and Irish dancing (I like to be indoors in bad weather), grocery shopping, reading, working out, eating ice cream, taking pictures of my kids, writing, telling stories, creating videos of our family with the hours of video that is jamming up my hard drive, not necessarily in a specific order!
Favorite Movies Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley, Bridesmaids, anything with Hugh Grant, the Proposal, Love Actually, Fried Green Tomatoes, A Few Good Men, Blindside
Favorite Music U2, Neil Diamond, any Irish traditional, Imagine Dragons, Pink, One Republic, American Authors, Prince
Favorite Books The Girls, Unbroken, Seabiscuit, Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, Shackleton's Stowaway, The Help, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Glass Castle, Half Broke Horses, The Silver Star, Same Different as Me, Shanghai Girls
