About me

Gender Female
Location midwest
Introduction My name is Tina. I'm a working Mom, married to a helluva guy. I have one wonderful little boy. Life is good...and sometimes it gets a little messy. I like travel, shoes, playing with my tot, piano bars, art, handbags, family dance sessions in my living room, vodka martinis, books, cooking, music, really good coffee and laughing too loud. I curse a lot...but I'm still a good person. I am a child and family therapist and play therapist. I drive too fast and I talk too much. I love being a Mom, planning adventures, my work with children and families, making mischief and kissing my husband. I am a little obsessed with sparkly hot vampires, earning travel rewards with my credit card and making the perfect music play list for any occasion. This blog is named so because, while I USUALLY have the best of intentions...I make a hot mess of myself in most situations. Everyone needs a little something...a trick, an act for the show, something special that sets you apart from every other big top in town. Everyone needs a smart bear...this blog is mine. Thanks for visiting lil ol' me.
