ABOUT HILLARY: I’m basically a goof-ball who likes cute clothes. I do things by trial and error and get lots of chuckles along the way. My blog and YouTube channel showcase the goofiness. I married my high school sweetheart and he morphed into a philosopher grad student when I wasn’t looking. Our two kids are wild and sweet, funny and frustrating. I like to talk a lot about the exhausting task of parenting. I like to share yummy recipes and horrible disasters. I do serious, too. I’ve battled rheumatoid arthritis and a vicodin addiction. So if you’re in the mood for something a little more murky you can check those things out. Otherwise, come on over and have a laugh.
