I have been home for only three days in the last two weeks. I haven't done laundry or gone to the grocery in 14 days. I don't think I've even shaved my legs in my own shower in as long. And it's for the best reasons ever. … [Read More...]
Everywhere I went, I was asked the same question. Sooo... what is this book is about? And then I give a perfectly wonderful answer about it being a funny memoir of my life as a fat girl and then growing up and being something great.

I've been married to Andy for 10 years.
