About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.

    Would it be totally weird if I said that your man, is, uh, very, er, hot. You guys look so adorable together! And happy belated birthday! When did you say you turned 26, I didn't see a post 😮 And yay, another TVD fan has been made! I really, really want to read Shade. What the heck am I waiting for? The damn snow that sprung this month knocked out my power for three days and left me in blogging withdrawal, so that sucked. It was pretty weird going trick-or-treating while trudging through the snow o_O And I'm SO excited for the End of the Year survey! It's one of my favorite things to do at the end of the year, blogging-wise.
