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.


  1. I love powerberries and Andrew Bird and you and this video and your engagement ring and everything ever that was Jamie-fied.

  2. Awww… I love the picture montage! I think that I need to make one of these next time my besties are all in one place =) I’ve totally had “Somebody I Used to Know” on repeat for the last month or so and I’m definitely going to check out the song that you’re listening to! And *excited squeal* for engagement ring and wedding dress!!! You must be getting sooooo excited now!

  3. Engagement ring! WOOOOOO! *\o/*

    I read The Host by Stephanie Meyer this past month. Going into it I just read it because they’re making it a movie, and it sounded ishly interesting. HOLY book. It was amazing. I read it in about 2 days and stayed up until 3am one of the nights. That movie needs to come out ASAP. I would suggest it for sure.

  5. That video is why I love yall.


  6. It sounds like your April was a BLAST! Yesss to Andrew Bird. So funny because I was discussing him and his impeccable whistling with people the other day.

  7. Hahaha. That video is FANTASTIC. I need to meet all of you someday. Even though I’m not sure I could keep up.

    I can’t believe how amazing your April was. Hope May is just as good to you!

  8. Love, love, love that video and don’t even get me started on the Powerberries. Hope you have an amazing May too.

  9. If you love Jessica Lea Mayfield, do you love her brother David Mayfield? His band is awesome and when he dances, my heart melts. David Mayfield Parade. *swoon*

  10. What a great month! I love the video of all the photos, it’s awesome!

  11. I adore the video – because I love every single girl in it. I feel so fortunate to have met Tara and Anna this year at BEA; hopefully, I get to meet you and Jen in person sooner than soon!

    And I am so totally jealous that you got to meet Stephanie Perkins! She’s one of my favorite authors – and I would totally GO NUTS if I met her!


  1. […] I’ve been so fortunate to meet MOST of my favorite authors  (Stephanie Perkins, Gayle Forman, Megan McCafferty, Jonathan Safran Foer, David Levithan, Lauren DeStefano, Veronica Rossi, etc. etc. etc.). Seriously, only a few left I haven’t. And I’m so freaking lucky because I’ve even gotten to meet some of my VERY BEST BLOGGING FRIENDS in the whole wide world and the superstars that are the FYA ladies.  I have even had fun bloggy sleepovers where we make ridiculously awesome videos.
