I am a writer, an ellipticizer, a mother, a wife, a lion-tamer, a diet coke quitter, a juggler, a getter-of-drinks. I drink my coffee a little sweet and a little light. I like the smell of clean sheets and the feel of almost everything from anthropologie. I chew minty gum and love history more than the average person should, really. I am an expert in the art of time suckage. I like to quote movies, eat cookie dough, and read. I love Jon Hamm and I miss LOST. I wear confidence glasses and was raised by my television set. I wish I could rid the world of LOLspeak and leggings-as-pants. I am Canada’s Emma Pillsbury and Annie Edison and my children tell me that I am a DOF (destroyer of fun). I am learning to use my camera better and love my thighs more. I am the editor-in-chief of Yummy Mummy Club by day, and a helper-with-homework and expert snuggler by night.
About my kids:
I am raising one hip-hop dancing actress, one Harry Potter-loving, baseball-playing math whiz, and one tutu-wearing artist.
I am truly the luckiest mama in the world.
like making pancakes. You usually mess up the first couple, but then by the third you sort of get the hang of it ;)
We know you don't have a lot, but when you do, what do you like to do in your spare time?:

When are you at your yummiest?:
I am at my yummiest when I'm dressed like Betty Draper.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what would be the title?:
Mama in a Hoodie and Yoga Pants; Lady in a Day Dress and Pearls.

4 of the exact same shade of lipgloss, three tampons, Vanilla Bean Noel body lotion, Tic Tacs, a wallet with two many coins in it (and not enough bills), and a Menchie's gift card.

Time-Freezing. No question.
If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?:
