Around the Web

Feel like we've met somewhere before? Maybe you've seen my work around the web...

I show up some places on the regular.

Pssst... I don't mean to brag (Oh, yes I do!), but I'm the Social Content Designer on the amazing team at Brainjolt (owners of awesome online properties like Bad Parenting Moments, Happiness Heroes22 Words and MagiQuiz), where it's our mission to fight boredom and spread happiness. I also write freelance humor in my spare time (hahahaha "spare time," that's hilarious), and contribute regularly at Mommy Shorts.

HuffPost blogger Read me In the Powder Room!

I used to be an Associate Editor, writer and graphic designer at Scary Mommy, and was editor and crafty humor writer at CraftFail. I loved writing funny lists and infographics for NickMom as well as serving as a NickMom Ambassador, representing their brand and funny voice around the web. Let's see, I was also a columnist for A&E's edgy lifestyle site LifetimeMoms, was a humor writer at mom.me, a featured writer at In The Powder Room, I'm published on Home Made Simple and P&G Everyday through Movable Media, I'm a contributor at BonBon Break and Felicity Huffman's What the Flicka and I'm also a Huffington Post blogger. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention...

I'm a published New York Times bestselling author!
A New York Times bestsellerI Just Want To Pee Alone is a hilarious anthology of stories from 37 mom bloggers about motherhood. It's also a #1 best seller on Amazon and iTunes!

You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth
"You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth" is a fantastic, honest, laugh-out-loud collection of 39 original essays about being a woman - the good, the bad, and the stuff you only tell your bestie. It's a #1 Hot New Release on Amazon!

I Just Want To Be Alone, the sequel to the best-selling I Just Want To Pee Alone, is an uproarious anthology of stories by women, dishing about the men we love - and love to laugh about.
I Still Just Want To Pee Alone, released April 2015, revisits motherhood with fresh voices telling all sorts of stories, hilarious to heartwarming, from the front lines of parenting.

I was excited to be on the faculty of the Blog University writers' conference in June 2014, where I taught sessions on graphic design...

 BlogU 2015
...and I taught sessions on Getting Paid To Write Beyond Your Blog and co-hosted an Editing Workshop at Blog University 2015!

I was honored to be a cast member of Listen To Your Mother, Indianapolis (May 2013) and was thrilled to be on the cast of Listen To Your Mother, NW Indiana in May 2014, too! (ValpoLife did a great job covering the event, and even interviewed my husband. So he's, like, pretty famous.) I was a cast member of The Mamalogues in South Bend, IN in July 2015 as well!

I was named a Must-Follow Humor Blog by BlogHer in 2013.

I was a panelist on a Google+ Hangout about raising kids in the age of digital media with mom.me editors and Dr. Larry Rosen in January 2015.

I have writing cred on viral video collaborations with My Life Suckers.

I had some posts that were featured on BlogHer:

I've also been featured by:

Your Tango (for the Disney Princess Peeps I made and arted up for 22 Words in March 2016)
ABC (in an interview regarding parenting millenials, April 2015)
Today.com (in an interview about the Kim Kardashian #breaktheinternet parody photo I created, posted here, November 2014)
Today.com in multiple "Funniest Parents of the Week on Facebook" articles
Mommy Shorts (in a parody of the Kim Kardashian profile by Paper Magazine, rewritten to be about me, including more of my #breaktheinternet spoof photos - November 2014)

I've been recognized for Best Parenting Tweets of the week by Huffington Post Parents and NickMom multiple times, and was named one of the 12 Funniest Parents on Twitter by Mommyish (you can find links to the articles on my LinkedIn profile).

I've guest written for:

I was quoted:
  • on Today, talking about my experiences as a divorced co-parent in an article about the Brangelina breakup in September 2016
  • on Babble regarding insults from my kids in October 2014
  • on BabyZone about ridiculous toddler demands in October 2013
  • by Care.com about my own Halloween costume fails and those of my kids in two September 2013 articles

2 Yard Skip size is 5 ft Length x 4 ft Weight x 3 ft Height (1.52m x 1.22m x 0.91m). 2 yard skip can hold 20 to 25 large black bin bags. So if you are planning to do your weekly household cleanups or any other small DIY’s then trust me this is a perfect size. Many customers order these mini skips in larger quantities as these are handy and even ladies can use it easily. It’s small and handy which makes it unique for its work.
