About Me

I’m super thin, model tall, and bombshell blonde. I wear expensive red stilettos everywhere I go.

Wait. No. That’s my iStock photo.

I don’t mind if that’s how you’d like to picture me, though. I don’t mind one bit.

But, in reality, I’m a shorty! My blonde is 100% paid for … and I wear flip flops. Most of the time.

I am married to the greatest guy. Known on this blog as Husband, he is funny, kind, and a tad neurotic about organization and cleanliness. Which means, he cleans my house. Weekly. Even toilets. Yes, I’m a lucky wife.

We are new parents to the most beautiful little girl. We call her Baby around here. She’s amazing and so much fun. Except when she sleeps on her face. That just terrifies me.

I do love high heels. I own many, many, many beautiful pairs of shoes. I just don’t wear them very often these days. You know … since Baby goes to sleep for the night before the sun even goes down. I could don my red patent leather peep-toes for the sixty-eight trips I make up and down the hall each night to make sure my child-who-sleeps-on-her-face is still breathing. However, the click-clack of the heels just might wake that sweet, sleeping child. And, that would most definitely interfere with the other love in my life.


Red wine. White wine. A little Bubbly from time to time. I’m not a wine connoisseur. I can’t talk about bouquets. I rarely identify the ingredients based on aroma alone. Heck, sometimes I can’t even do that by taste. I just know that a nice glass of wine at the end of a long day (or sometimes in the middle of the afternoon) is relaxing and enjoyable.

And, when I come home from work at the end of the day …. *sigh* … sometimes at the end of the week (as my job often takes me away for a few days at a time), nothing makes me happier than slipping off my trusty black pumps, rocking my sweet baby girl to sleep, and sharing a glass of wine with Husband.


  1. I just stumbled onto your blog and your introduction here is just perfect. I couldn't describe a working mom such as myself better than you just did, particularly the wine part. ;-)
    Congratulations on being a mom though.

  2. Love your blog name! I couldn't have said it better myself!
