I’m kind of a big deal.

18011172_10101204082576076_3996708212692359107_nWelcome to mommablogsalot.com, my little corner of the blogiverse. If this is your first time here, let me introduce myself and my blog and tell you a little bit about us:

My name is Jen and I am the exuberantly proud momma to an amazingly clever eleven year old boy (referred to here as “MM”) who never ceases to amaze me with his intelligence, kindness and charm (read more about MM here) and feisty diva child of seven years (known here as “BB”) who can go from sugar and spice to temper tantrum central in less than ten seconds (read more about BB here).


My husband and I moved our family halfway across the country from New England to Wisconsin almost eight years ago for a new job, so we spend a lot of long weekends continuing to explore the area and carve out a home in our new midwestern lives – from never ending home improvement projects, to weekend day trips and grilling dinner on every nice weekend we get – we are Weekend Warriors for sure!

I’m a fangirling super mom and spend my time volunteering at my kids school, subbing part time, talking friends into going out for coffee with me, cooking up healthy dinners for the family, taking 8 million pictures, writing, reading, gaming and watching varying levels of quality television. I love stories in all forms and enjoy as many of them as I can find whether in the form of a book, movie, television show or good song.

As my blog’s name suggests, I am an avid blogger. You can find me writing about everything from parenting to celebrity gossip, favorite recipes, my latest book obsessions and more.

  1. I find your About Me to be put together lovely; its style of beginning with “I’m the girl…” makes me feel like “you’re the girl…who I know very well just from reading several choosy (used to mean oddly particular) sentences about. Also, I relate with the books—you can never have too many!

    Lovely blog, glad I saw it on my list of links which brought people to my site.



  2. How I wish I could write a decent “about me” just like yours 🙂 I love life blogs and will surely be back to read your posts.

    Thanks for visiting my blog!


  3. This is SO ME too! “I’m kind of a homebody trapped with a heart that starves for travel. So I’m always yearning to either sit at home with a good book or run off to Rome, Maine or Papau New Guinea at the last minute (admittedly, I usually end up doing the first).”


  4. Ran across you blog by chance and have enjoyed “spending time with you” I to have a blog about being a mom although my friends tell me I am a bit of an over achiever in that area. I love comments but never get any so—-please just go and say something—anything I am in need of some reassurance.


  5. Jen E –

    Thank you for reviewing Finding Aster. I am the publicist at Inkwater Press, the publisher of the book. We’ll be posting a blog about this review and linking to your site, a good thing to help boost you search ranking.

    Would be open to receiving any more books that relate to parenting or the other interested you’ve indicated on your site?

    At this point we don’t have anything that would be appropriate, but we are always publishing new books.

    Thank you again for the review,
    Steve Thieme
