featured blog: outnumbered

Hi!
I'm Danelle. Wife. Mother. Photographer. Chef. Writer. I'm not paid to do any of that professionally, mind you, but I do it all! 
This is me.  Once every ten years, someone takes a picture of me that I actually like.
I started blogging in 2009, as a way to chronicle the ups and downs of raising three boys. I'm blessed to be a stay-at-home mom. Between volunteering at school and chauffeuring kids to after school activities, I usually have time to pursue my interests in photography and cooking.
I'm a bit of an organization freak.  Although I did relax quite a bit after the birth of my third son.  I'm no longer opposed to shoving things haphazardly into closets and under beds as a permanent storage solution.  Don't judge.  The third kid will do that to you.  I've still managed to stay organized in the areas of my life the kids don't have access to.  Which is why I post all my photography here.
And all my recipes here.
I love a good quote. Here are a few of my favorites.
Outnumbered; is where I post about the hilarity we call home.  It's a blog about the funny, crazy, and yes, the mundane things that happen around here.  And living in a house full of boys like I do, it's also a blog about putting down the toilet seat, the pros and cons of using soap, and whether Pikachu or Charizard is better in a Pokemon battle.
I like to think of myself as the next Erma Bombeck, or perhaps the female Dave Barry. Sure, John Steinbeck can tell epic stories, rich with imagery and symbolism, but Dave Barry can make you laugh so hard you’ll pee your pants. That’s the kind of thing I aspire to. In a house full of boys, bathroom humor will get you a long way.

Darn...I'm bummed! It looks like the links to the food and photo blogs are working (and they look awesome!) but the link to the family life blog isn't. Waaaaaah!

I'll check back later and see if I can make something happen :)

Here's the correct link to Outnumbered. I obviously messed that up when I wrote up my speil.

Great post -- as the mom of a boy, I know whereof you speak --

What a talented photographer you are! I enjoyed all your photos posted, especially the delectable sweets! Are those nuts on chocolate?! I just love that combination.
Your witty comment about not judging you after the 3rd child and not being organized anymore (in some areas), I can definitely relate to only I just have 1!
Great post! -Ella
