Erica, a married mom to four kids, now well into the tween-to-teen stage, twins included, is doing her best to survive the chaos by keepin' it real. Her keys to survival, in no particular order, are coffee, the occasional gin, her iGadgets, her husband's cooking and hugs and kisses from her kids.

With nearly 25 years in the banking industry under her belt, Erica continues to enjoy a part-time work schedule that allows her time to explore her creative side, whether it be cake-decorating, blogging, or Instagram Story-ing.

Erica is a full-fledged Warrior, Mudder and Spartan. She continues to conquer her running hang-ups by registering for one or two 10Ks a year with the belief that if you regularly push yourself beyond your comfort zone, you will delight in the sweaty afterglow. She believes in loyalty and karma and that, if not for selfies, mothers everywhere would never be in pictures.

When this sleep-challenged mom is not busy planning a birthday party or baking, you will find her dishing on party planning ideas at ericablogscakes.com, blogging about rolling with the punches at ericablogs.com, or taking you through her day over on Instagram Stories. Come hang out!

About my kids: 
They are smart and funny, curious and energetic. Basically, I live in constant fear of screwing them up.
Parenting is...: 
like a universal suckerpunch. You're not quite expecting it, never ready for it and once it hits, it knocks you flat on your ass.
We know you don't have a lot, but when you do, what do you like to do in your spare time?: 
Read, run, gab with friends, binge-watch Netflix, bake.
When are you at your yummiest?: 
When I've had my hair and make-up done and I get to dress up for a night out with my sexy husband.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what would be the title?: 
Late to the Party
What's currently in your purse?: 
I think the better question is: what is NOT in my purse?
What superhero power would you like to have?: 
The power to pee in silence.
If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?: 
Inside my purse. Not that one. The other one.
