Here's something that bugs me, although I'm trying to stay thankful & positive these days: I am so over ostentatious & big houses. I think obnoxiously broadcasting wealth & putting priorities on stuff is just weird. On TV I'm sick of it; "The Girls Next Door", "Cribs" "Run's House" & all the other shows that emphasize stuff, money, cars, fabulousness, who cares? Starter castles everywhere in the suburbs with no trees around them, just house, no greenery. If I could have a house of my dreams it would probably look like a Hobbit house, one big round space with an upstairs loft built into a hillside.

- I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
