Hi there. My name is Linda. I’ve been detailing the thrilling minutiae of my life on the web since 2002, back when personal blogs were called online journals, this image was being emailed around the planet, and scanning items from pet catalogues seemed like a pretty good use of my time.

I live in a Seattle suburb Eugene, Oregon (we moved in May 2012) with my husband, the many-adjective’d JB, and our sons Riley and Dylan. Prior to August 2010 I was in marketing for a Mac software company, now I work from home as a freelance writer. You can find me every weekday at The Stir at CafeMom.

Some of my previous blogging gigs include: Balanced Living at Gather, Daily Grommet, Lemondrop, ParentDish, SundryBuzz, and Work It, Mom!.

You can contact me at sundry at gmail dot com, or find me on Twitter here.

  • Stuff I Like:

      space Scowler Scowler, by Daniel Kraus If you like horror books, definitely check this out. Scowler is ostensibly YA, but I can't even imagine Stephen-King-loving preteen me reading it -- it's scary, bleak, and grueling as hell. But also wonderfully written and completely unique. space rosieproject The Rosie Project, by Graeme Simsion Funny and quirky and endearing and best of all, it's the sort of book you just can't put down. space marylou Mary-lou Manizer Highlight/Shimmer Powder This is basically a shimmery (not glittery!) powder that adds a really nice luminescent highlighting glow. I sweep it on the top of my cheekbones, on top of blush, and blend. space cosmeticsbox Wood Cosmetic Box by Lori Greiner I just got this makeup container and it's pretty fabulous. (Thanks, Shark Tank Lori!) It closes up into a nice attractive box, and opens with all sorts of clever drawers. Note that 1) it's TALL, so check measurements, and 2) you'll probably still need one separate thing to hold tall brushes. space goldfinch The Goldfinch Everyone seems to be talking about this book lately, and with good reason. I read it for what felt like weeks on end (it's LONG) and every night I had weird half-dreams about the stories that had unfolded. It's emotionally exhausting, but so beautifully written. space egyptian Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream This is a heavy-duty moisturizer made of olive oil and bee goo and it's perfect for icky winter dry skin. space pb2 PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter MIRACLE FOOD. It's powdered peanut butter you mix with water (or add to a smoothie, or...) and it has a fraction of the fat and calories of regular peanut butter. Plus: delicious. space timebalm The Balm Timebalm Anti-Wrinkle Concealer I'm always on the lookout for awesome concealers (my eye circles, let me terrify you with them), and this one is my current favorite. space brushes Real Techniques Starter Set I wouldn't have thought a different brush could make any sort of noticeable improvement in my makeup technique. I was so, so, SO wrong. If you like makeup, you need these brushes immediately. space Stainiac Stainiac Lip Stain Great lip stain that gives a natural rosy flush and lasts a really long time. space [More things I like...]
