<p>I'm a 41-year-old Southern soccer mom to two little girls who's been chronicling the more humorous moments in parenting at&nbsp;<a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.blondemomblog.com" target="_blank"><strong>BlondeMomBlog</strong> </a>since 2005. It's my creative outlet for sharing my deep thoughts about poop, guilt as a working mom, and my obsession with Target and Britney Spears. I struggle to get to work, or anywhere for that matter, on time, eradicate my house of dog hair, and find 5 minutes of solitude that don't involve sitting on the toilet or bribing someone with a frosted Barbie PopTart. <br /> <br /> I have a degree in old school print journalism and sociology and more than 17 years of experience in writing, editing, and public relations. I work 30 hours a week for a business publishing company as a special projects editor and social media coordinator. I post product reviews and giveaways at <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.savvyhousewife.com" target="_blank"><strong>www.SavvyHousewife.com</strong></a> and have worked with such brands as Honda, Nissan, Kleenex and Lee Jeans. I'm on the advisory team for DivineCaroline and I'm very excited to be a part of this fabulous website for women!</p>
