I'm Sarah and I'm a stay-at-home mom to 3 young boys, born in 2007, 2009, & 2012. In my previous life I majored in English, went to law school, & was a lawyer who represented children who had been abused &/or neglected; most of my clients were in foster care.
I'm a blogger - Toddling Around Chicagoland - http://www.toddlingaroundchicagoland.com I write about family-friendly activities and events in Chicago and the surrounding areas.
I love my planner (Erin Condren life planner) and I recently fell in love with bullet journaling. I use a regular 8.5x11 notebook, but I just bought a fauxdori traveler's notebook to try out. It's 8.5x5 so it'll fit regular size inserts.
I don't do much crafting now, but I'm interested in ATCs and pocket letters (I've only done one of each so far). In the past I have sewn, crocheted, and done cross-stitch a bit.
Orphan Black, Doctor Who, The West Wing, Torchwood, Eureka, Warehouse 13, New Girl, Breaking Bad, Orange Is the New Black, Sons of Anarchy, How I Met Your Mother, The Office, Weeds, Big Bang Theory, Lost, Masterchef, Scandal, Empire
Slurpees... especially Coke ones, but I like orange, grape, or lemon-lime flavored ones too.
Converse, especially All-Stars.
Serial killers & true crime. I know, it's weird.
Empire Records, Deadpool, Death to Smoochy, Rounders, Good Will Hunting, Six Degrees of Separation, Chasing Amy, Dogma. Pretty much anything with Matt Damon or Ed Norton. I also love ridiculous, over-the-top action/disaster movies like 2012, Sharknado, White House Down.
They Might Be Giants, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Beastie Boys, Eminem, The Cure, Violent Femmes, The Tossers.
I love love love Oh, The Places You'll Go and pretty much any Dr. Seuss book. I love Oliver Sacks & Stephen King books & true crime books. I've been reading a lot lately - especially suspense and sci fi books. Some of my recent favorites: The Girl With All The Gifts, You (by Caroline Kepnes), 1Q84, Quantum Night, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, What Was Mine, What Alice Forgot, and Wreckage.
I'm interested in seeing some pocket letters and ATCs. Would love to receive some!
Ombre, dip-dye, and watercolor stuff. I love really colorful things! Tie dye is okay too.
grammar & punctuation (I'm an English geek so anything punctuation or grammar related is awesome)
bullet journaling - I just started but I love it! (I use a regular large spiral notebook). I just ordered a fauxdori/travel journal and I'm really excited to try it out! It's 8.5 x 5 so it fits regular size inserts. I'd love any tips, suggestions, or supplies for it!
Sci-fi related stuff. I love Doctor Who, Eureka, Warehouse 13, Torchwood, etc, and my kids are slowly turning me into a Harry Potter fan.
personalized address labels
rainbow colored stuff
the color orange
bright colors (not a huge fan of pastels or neons)
anything Dr. Seuss related or sort of Seussish
anything Doctor Who related
handmade items (upcycled items too!). I really appreciate the time and effort that goes into making handmade items.
my planner! I have an Erin Condren planner I love so any stickers or planner accessories are great!
Jewelry - I'm not too picky. I have pierced ears.
gel pens, Sharpie pens, fountain pens, etc.
purses, bags, little zippered pouches
caffeine-related istuff. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I drink pop for the caffeine (mostly Slurpees) and I enjoy tea that's caffeinated or uncaffeinated). I love coffee sayings swapped with caffeine; for instance, "A yawn is a silent scream for caffeine" or "Good ideas start with brainstorming; great ideas start with caffeine"
Yankee Candles and products
pretty headbands (the fabric kind)
handmade soap (preferably no patchouli scent!)
candy/food - I love red licorice (Red Vines or Twizzlers), Mike & Ike's, caramel, & most candy that isn't sour or tropical flavors. I love anything salty! I love soup mixes (not veggie). I try to avoid artificial sweeteners (anything "diet"). Chocolate is good, but I don't like dark or white chocolate.
Pampers "Gifts to Grow" point codes
the smell of patchouli & cigarette smoke! I'm not a big fan of vanilla either, but it's okay when mixed with something else.
I don't wear makeup. Lipgloss or lip balm is okay.
I've got tons of bath/body products that I never have time to use, so I don't need any of those.
I have tons of pin cushions & nowhere to put them! They're cute, but please don't send me more!
No FBs please!
Cooper is 8 and is an artist and writer. He loves to read, write, and draw and is very talented. He loves Doctor Who, Phineas & Ferb, and loves real artwork (Vincent Van Gogh is a favorite). He devours books, mostly fantasy stuff (Harry Potter, Land of Stories, etc.)
Dexter is 6 and he's our silly, dramatic child. He loves playing dress-up, playing outside, and using his imagination. He also loves Doctor Who and Phineas & Ferb. Dexter loves rainbows and pretty things and disagrees that pink/sparkly/etc stuff is "just for girls".
Campbell's the baby - he's 3 1/2. He loves cars, trucks, and monster trucks. We plan to raise him to be a Dr. Who fan too :) He's currently completely obsessed with "surprise egg" videos on YouTube.
