Welcome, Ericka! Thanks for making me laugh.
Blog name? Creative Liar
When was your blog born - and why?
Creative Liar was born on December 6, 2010 strictly to save my sanity. Previously, I had a blog called Alabaster Cow where I frequently talked about my backside and my chihuahuas' tendency to leave little gifts all over my tile floor. For some reason, my little stories went over big and I had quite a few followers but I got swept up into the whole advertising/writing posts to sell people's products scene and I realized it wasn't for me. I just wanted to write your run of the mill snarky humor/writing/vegan blog. Isn't that everyone's dream in life??

I totally just went on Thesaurus.com to look those up. But in all seriousness I'd say I'm funny (at least I try to be), open-minded, irreverent, kind, and stubborn.
Something that recently made you laugh?
My daughter pooped on my husband today. He did not find this to be as amusing as I did but I have to applaud his patience. I would have started a small fire in a waste basket, burned my clothing and commenced a crying session while standing naked in the kitchen. He did none of these things.
A favorite photo?
And no, she sought the comfort of our dust bunnies all on her own.
