I am a married stay/work at home mom to three great kids 5, 3 and 1.
My husband is a work at home (studio) architect. My house is in a constant state of renovation. Someday he will read this blog and be mad at me.
I hate gum. Hate chewing it, but especially hate watching other people chew it.
I miss my brother, even more, now that I have kids.
I have traveled around the world, literally. I hardly ever tell anyone about my travels and I have no idea why.
I hated my hair on my wedding day. I made a conscious decision to let it go that day, but I still haven’t. I feel like an idiot every time I think about it and know how vain that is.
I love that my husband is so handy. I lived alone for so long that I appreciate that someone else is in charge of those things now.
I love American Idol, because I am one of those people that secretly thinks they can sing, and really can’t.
I desperately want a flat stomach but do NOT want to do sit ups.
I love my dog – like I would jump in front of a car for him, love him!!
I hated my c-section, but I am grateful for it. It made both of my natural vaginal births all that much sweeter and victorious.
I wear knee socks all winter.
I think I might be a Buddhist, but don’t have the time to figure it out.
I research everything to the point of annoying others.
I used to work for the CIA.
I use cloth diapers on my children, and it’s not that crazy, really.
Speaking of crazy, I’m pretty sure my husband thinks I am.
I love that he loves me anyway.
My kids are hilarious.
I let my kids watch too much TV – I never thought I would.
I am late for everything, seriously, everything.
I hibernate in the winter and feel sad for my kids because I hate the cold so much.
I am constantly amazed by the things my husband manages to accomplish, build, & design.
I love peeps.

The expression, “Living the life of Riley” suggests an ideal contented life, possibly living on someone else’s money, time or work. Rather than a negative freeloading or golddigging aspect, it instead implies that someone is kept or advantaged.
