I also have a 3 ½ year old daughter Bizzie Princess. We live in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California in a condo that we out grew over a year ago.

How did you start blogging?

My original thought behind blogging was to promote my online baby boutique; a good friend told me I needed to be more personal with my posts and that triggered a flood of writing energy. That led to the launch of and I haven't been able to stop.

Tell us about your parenting philosophy:

My parenting philosophy is do the best you can with what you have, laugh often and ALWAYS buy Costco wipes.

You will never find me with out.....

You will never find me with my blackberry or moleskin notebook and now most recently my new SLR camera. I haven't been able to leave the house without them.
