I wanna make you laugh and cook you dinner. Come over for homemade pizza or pasta (or maybe pizta), and we’ll swap stories about what fills our soul and touches our heart. Some 90’s rap (Nelly or Usher) will play in the background, and my main only man will keep your wineglass glowing red. I’ll share about my journey to become a mother (#thestrugglewasreal) and how I’m on a mission to make my newborn laugh every day (#thesnuggleisreal). If we can’t meet at 7 p.m., let’s swap stories via social media. So tell me: My kitchen or yours? Your blog or mine?

Michelle Phillips is a teacher, writer, dancer, and young(ish) mom who lives with her husband and 13-month old daughter in Omaha, NE. When she isn’t molding the minds of second graders, she can be found searching the racks at her favorite second-hand kids’ clothing store, planning her family’s next Disney trip, or turning everyday activities into songs for her daughter (who may or may not think living in a musical is normal). She and her husband recently found out they are expecting baby No. 2 (after a very long wait for No. 1) and are simultaneously reeling and thrilled.
Anna Thornley is a Jersey Girl living in the Wild West with her husband, their three children (with another one on the way) and two dogs. She works full-time outside of the home and is generally frantic in her attempts to keep everyone (and everything) moving in the right direction. Her house is a mess, but everyone in it is happy and loved—so she
considers it a success. Sarcasm and a generally bad attitude guide through most days. Anna is still trying to come to terms with the fact that her family expects to eat dinner every single night. Follow Anna on Twitter to keep up with all her family’s antics: @rudeytudeymama
