I am a 40 year old, first time, new mommy. I live in a suburb of Chicago. I work full time in an animal hospital as the Head Nurse and Office Manager. I have been the president of a dog rescue since 2000. I am also the mom of 3 large dogs. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching football, funny sitcoms, and trashy dramas, gardening, writing, rum, wine, and cold beer. My blog features the ups and downs and humor of being a first time mom.
