It would be so empty without me

Hello! I’m a SAHM (aka “girl of reduced social responsibility”) -and- un connaisseur de vernis à ongles. I consider myself one of the top yoga pant and ironic t-shirt domestic fashion influencers (’40-something’ category) in ATL GA, and I’m a former Chinese Drywall home product tester & subsequent medical trial & research subject.

My hobbies include photography, cooking, dusting the house in my tiara, the OU Sooners football team, and hoarding pretty packaging supplies. (Not necessarily in that order.)

I have a passion for politics, the inability to return e-mails in a timely manner, and an irrational fear of mariachi bands that dates back to childhood.

I was the type of ‘mom-to-be’ that not only played classical music, but also Weezer, to my sons in utero. You know, for balance. Last but not least, I consistently achieve a SleepIQ™ Score of under 40.

You may have known / followed me during my former online lives as ‘shutterblog’ at (“Aint too proud to blog”),, buttonsandbowsphotography.comFlickr, and Professional Photographer Magazine.

Todd and I co-wrote Chapter 15 on blogging in “Online! The Book” by Dvorak & Pirillo
My former blogs were featured in 2007’s “The IT Girl’s Guide to Blogging with Moxie
