If you’ve read Women Are Scary, do you remember my friend Lindsey who wrote the top ten list for dating moms who work outside of the home? She’s from Oklahoma and I live near Atlanta and back in 2010, we dragged our families to Memphis to hang out at a hotel on Beale Street for a weekend just because. Oh and we’d never met in person, so this is either the coolest or creepiest internet mom dating story ever.
You: You took your families on a cross-country blind date?
Us: Yes. Yes we did.
You: Was it awkward?
Us: No way!
Our husbands: Maybe a little…
Hey, neither of us turned out to be axe murderers, so all’s well that ends well.
I tried to find a photo of the two of us together, but all I could find was this fake tattoo we let Elliott get on his tiny three-year-old leg in the middle of Beale street. I think I remember sending the photo to my mom with no explanation, just to let her have a mild heart attack before telling her it was temporary.
Anyhoo, Lindsey’s giving away a free copy of my book and we did an interview together in which I say important things like, “I love yoga pants and sitting on the beach not taking long walks.”
We talk about binge-watching TV, HopeChest, my book, how I’m getting friendships right and wrong, and how there’s no such thing as “doing it all.” So if you’re looking to snag a copy of my book or want to get to know my friend Lindsey, pop over here.
