  1. I think my favorite part is the baby dance break to “Bingo”. Have a great weekend!

  2. Oh geez. The only thing I love more than watching a toddler toddle is watching a toddler toddle AND dance, all while wearing a fun hat. Yes, he needs breakdancing lessons, STAT!

    I’m beyond excited about this win!!! I choose The BFG. That’s my all-time favorite, and I am already imagining reading it to little ones of my own someday. :)

    • YAY!!! Ok, now I am on a mission to find you a pretty copy. :) :) Will email you with deets!

  3. DANCE BREAK! Smart kid you got there, Duprezes!

Who the hell is she?


I am a writer living in Seattle and I believe that life is a grand adventure and only boring if you believe it to be. Plus! You don't need money to have fun.

I live with my husband, a photographer by education and a maker-of-video-games by trade, and a baby named gabe in an apartment on the hill.

I am romantic about most things and I cry... about almost anything. I tell stories to entertain you, I spread stories to keep you in the loop. I am not a grammar freak, but I do know how to spell it. I am exceedingly proud of my scrambled eggs and I really could eat an entire pan of cupcakes. If I met me, I would be my best friend. I tend to be irreverent.

If you would like to chat with me or see what else I'm up to you can follow me on Twitter (betterinrealife), on facebook, or email me at betterinrealife at gmail.
