My name is Jen. I have a contagiously funny husband, three awesomely gorgeous daughters, a knack for design, a love for writing, an obsession with kids fashion, a secret desire to be a photographer and a curfew of 10 pm. WHO'S WITH ME?

#31daymarch Blog Challenge- Dream Job (Not to be confused with Boob Job)
Day 7 – What’s your dream job?
I’ve had more dream jobs than Snooki’s had bad hair days.
My short list over the many years has gone something like this. Each of which I was totally convinced that I was going to be when I grew up.
Crime Scene Investigator
Children’s Boutique Owner
And, I’ve even accumulated some prize pieces over the years, to show for my dream job aspirations. Microscope kits. Casio keyboards. Shading pencils.
An adopt-a-manatee certificate.
Do you own a sea cow somewhere out there in the depths of the great Caribbean Sea? If that’s not drive, I don’t know what is.
I think my problem is that I’ve never been able to nail ONE THING down. I don’t ever want to do just one thing. While some people (bless their unconfused hearts) know from day one what they aspire to be, I tend to move in the opposite direction and attempt to be all things I’m decent at.
Am I an overachiever or do I need medication?
My current situation is pretty amazing. I get to be home with my kids while writing, blogging, designing (graphically), community-building and collaborating with other business women & men, from the comforts of my favorite knee-torn black Nike sweatpants. Of course there are days when I want to bang my head on everything that is within a foot’s reach of it, so on those days, I just go out and buy shit.
Never underestimate the power of angry shopping.
Truth be told, while I love all that I do, there are still a few other things I haven’t completed yet and I won’t feel satisfied (I think) until I do. Those things are in the works, so don’t you worry for a single second. Because if there is anything DREAMY about what I do, it’s that I live in a world where you can do everything. Even if it means you look like a Fraggle 5 days a week.
