Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Welcome last minute Ultimate Blog Partiers!  I’m Jen, the crazy voice in your head behind Dear Mommy Brain.  A few fun facts about me…  I am an obsessive compulsive, slightly crunchy, real food loving, aspiring frugalista, wanna-be clean freak, struggling intellectual, guilt-ridden working mom fighting through the fog of mommy brain.  Oh, and a procrastinator.  Obviously.

Some things you will read about at Dear Mommy Brain…

Eating.  But don’t be expecting anything particularly resembling a recipe.  I do my best to provide a vague outline of what I’m doing, but honestly I don’t even know half the time.  I’m a “that looks about right” kinda cook.  And if something turns out well, I’ll share it with you.  I’m also a meal planning nazi.  As a working mom, it is absolutely necessary to meal plan for the sake of my sanity, but I don’t know why I didn’t do it before.  It’s made my life like 432% easier.

Simple Savings.  I LOVE saving money, but honestly, I’m over the drugstore game.  It’s too much work and Walgreens has just broken my heart too many times.  So I’m always looking for easy ways to satisfy my frugal addiction with readily available, environmentally conscious supplies.  And I like to share these ideas…  Because I’m no hoarder.

Tackling Debt.  Follow me on my journey to clear over $11,000 worth of consumer debt in 12 months.  It’s going to be a bloody battle.

Plus, as a bonus, you get to read about all my failed attempts at being a crafty, organized, put-together mom.  **Guaranteed to make you feel better about your life.**

Why do I feel like I’m selling a Life Time Magazine subscription??

So, grab yourself a big Dr Pepper and settle in to stumble through the dizzying world of Dear Mommy Brain.

    Hi there! I'm a new follower from the UBP. Right now I'm experiencing a combo of pregnancy brain and mommy brain, so I thought this would be the perfect place to go for some commiserating. Also, I'm hoping to get inspired by your meal planning!

    Hi, found your blog through bloghop. Would love it if you can follow me at Obstacles & Glories, have a nice weekend!

    OKay, this is great blog! Love it! I am not crafty, or chef-ish, or on time. We would totally be friends in the real world. That sounds weird. I'm mom of 5 crazies and married to deaf hubs. Will definitely be coming back!

    Stopping in from the blog party. Can I grab a pepsi instead of a Dr. Pepper? :)

    Hi! Visiting from the UBP. I have to say, I love your humor! I have the "mommy brain" thing — I think what happened to me was that the "pregnancy brain" – after having nine children — just stuck after my last one, and now I have permanent "pregnancy brain" which I now just call "mommy brain" :)

    I'm your newest "follower" via GFC — nice to meet you!

    I found you on BYB Friday and knew I had found a like minded person: a working mommy who has mommy brain!
    I've been perusing your site and I love your honesty and wit.
    Nice to "meet" you!
