The Recovery: Mom’s Night Out Part II

Oh man! The Mayan’s Premiere was fun, but I’m still exhausted. One shot of tequila and a late night might have been too much for this mama! I took yesterday off to lounge in my pajamas and watch movies with the girls, but I’m still taking it easy today. I…

Mayans Premiere: Mom’s Night Out

I’m currently sitting here munching on a snack before I get ready for the Mayans Premiere. My dad is a producer, but his girlfriend couldn’t make it tonight. So I offered to accompany him. These things are a lot more fun with a date. And my brother did the Mayans…

Cinco de Mayo in Your 30s

Oh man. I used to love this holiday. I would dress up in red, throw on some party beads, and hit a local Mexican restaurant. I’d eat a basket of chips (maybe two!) with some tableside guacamole and order a couple of tacos. I always went with a pack of…

Active Shooter in My Hometown

Yesterday a gunman shot his ex-wife and attempted to take his own life at a mall I have frequented countless times. I grew up walking through those stores, eating at their restaurants, and attending many movies. There is even an indoor playground where I have taken my children. Around 2:15pm…

Happy Belated St. Patrick’s Day!

This used to be a much more epic day for me, but as a mom with three kids under three, I’m way too tired to drink alcohol or just do anything that isn’t absolutely necessary. I spent my junior year abroad in Ireland, and I would commemorate it each year…

About Me

I am a mom of three young daughters: a set of toddler twins and a newborn. As much as it’s wonderful, it has challenged many (if not all) of my expectations of motherhood. I had always heard, “Becoming a mom will change you.” Now I had conceptualized this in a…
