Are you reading this from your mobile device whilst atop the porcelain throne? I’m not judging, just curious.
In case you were wondering, I am coming to you live from the bathroom, but only because I’m hiding from my kids. If I have to read The Little Engine That Could one more time today, I am going to scoop out my eyeballs with rusty spoons.
Anyhoo, I really just want to say HIYA! to my new pals. You see, someone over at BlogHer was
crazy kind enough to feature my silly little Grandparent quiz in their Family section! While I am absolutely honored and thrilled to be among the greatness that is BlogHer, I’ve gotta drop some real talk on you: I’m afraid people are going to hate me after they read it. The post was inspired by conversations with other Moms (who will remain anonymous lest they are barraged by phone calls from Grammy). The piece is very snarky and tongue-in-cheek, which is basically me, BUT that’s not all I have to offer. Have you ever seen me dance? When I’m six beers deep, I’ve got more moves than Amanda Bynes got wigs.
So, to counteract the judgy wudgy comments I will inevitably receive, I thought it best to formally introduce myself. If you still want to hate me after that, it’s cool.
Hello, my name is Stephanie and I am a blogger. Few in my life truly understand what blogging is, but most of them pretty much hate it anyway. They say I have “no limits.” They call me “inappropriate.” They claim I’m “insufferable.” They are boring.
My math teacher husband and I, our two adorable children, and our two crazy dogs call Pennsylvania home. We are not Amish. I, too, am an educator, but since I can barely balance my checkbook, I teach English. There are few things I love more than a good laugh, chocolate, or naps. Except my family. I love them the most. Be nice to them or I will cut you.
Girl power, honest conversation, and sunshine make my heart happy. I also dig human rights because we’re all human and we all have rights. I shouldn’t even have to write that, but you would not believe how many people don’t understand tolerance and acceptance. If there were a math word problem attached to the concept of kindness, I would totally get why some of us struggle with it, but c’mon.
I enjoy snuggles (but only when I’m in the mood), a good book, and date nights. I feel like a rock star when my kids remember to say thank you without me having to prompt them, and I’m an honest to goodness Daddy’s Girl. I have a younger brother who is the funniest person I know, and my mom calls approximately 24.5 times a day to see if I caught “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” I am truly blessed and I’m not above complaining about it.
I host a weekly series here on my little blog called Oversharing: I Ain’t Scarrred. If you would like to read some other bloggers’ funny or submit your own story (that would be thrilling, by the way), click HERE.
Do you know who Jill “Scary Mommy” Smokler is? Well, she’s my BFF (she doesn’t know yet, so don’t spoil the surprise), and because I won her Book Tour Contest, I get to have dinner with her on Saturday, June 29. Every time I think about it, I pee a little. Jill has actually agreed to submit one of her Oversharing tales to my series and her story will be featured right here on the last Tuesday in June!! Did you just pee a little, too?!! No? Still just me, eh?
So, pals, that’s me in a nutshell. If you’re up for more reading and or want to stick around for the after party (it consists of me, Lysol, and latex gloves), feel free. A few of my favorite posts are listed below, and I hope you enjoy them. I also hope you know how much I appreciate you stopping by. I love to write and the fact that people out there are reading my rants makes me smile the kind of smile that hurts your face. I imagine it’s what Paula Deen feels like every day. So, thank you.
Some of my favorites…
HEY!!!! Wanna be friends?!
