What is your favorite gadget?

Backtrack. It's a personal GPS unit. I lose my car constantly. So this helps.  Sort of.  When I remember it.

What is your favorite tv show?

I LOVE TRUE BLOOD!  I love Bill in a crazy way and used to live for Sunday nights.  It's a little campy but whoa - what about that sexual tension?????  I just love vampires

Like most moms, I am pretty shameless about showing off pictures of my kids, as you can see.

What music do you listen to when you have “me time”?  

I've worn out Tears Dry on Their Own by Amy Winehouse. I run to it and listened to it too many times in a row last time I flew cross country.  

What song do you love to sing on top of your lungs when you're alone in the car or shower?

Uh, that would be Amy Winehouse...

What is your favorite karaoke song?

I don't do karaoke.

Favorite board game or video game?

I HATE BOARD GAMES but I love Battleship. 

What is your family’s favorite entertainment activity?

Board games, of course! 

We play card games (we are very into spoons right now). We also jump on the trampoline

Here's an older picture of my board gaming loving family.  My oldest just went off to college this year, and it was tough.

 Who would play you in a movie about your life? What’s the plot?

This one is too hard for me! Since I'm a mom, I'm life is pretty exciting. Motherhood is not for wimps. It's not just a job, it's an adventure! Or is that the Army?

I have a more recent family picture below, I told the kids I want them to stop growing up. They are not listening.

Since you are about True Mom Confessions, you need to tell us your secret TV shame.

I watch the Real Housewives of Orange County and New York.  Both groups are like train wrecks - I can't pull myself away.  

I also love those bizarre British body shows, like the fattest man on earth or my 200 lb leg...

Big thanks to Romi for giving us a peek into her life! She's awesome, isn't she?
