Secret Santa Spin Cycle--Second Blooming

So Jen decided to have the Spin Cycle do the Secret Santa favorite blogger this year.  We were supposed to choose five of our favorite bloggers and send them to her and she would choose one for us to spotlight.
The blogger she picked out of my choices was Gretchen from Second Blooming.
I first found Gretchen through Sprite's Keeper's Spin Cycle.  She always had an interesting take on the spin topics and she has a little boy the same age as Turbo--instant connection in a totally not weird way.  I became a regular stalker of her blog and really enjoyed reading her posts.  She has a great take on just about everything.
I also saw her on Keely's Random Tuesday link up (which Stacy of Stacy Uncorked is leading for now).   Reading her Random Tuesday posts is alway interesting, she has fun links and great videos she posts.  Very random but always fun.
Gretchen lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Jimmy and son Jude.  She is an actress, mom and sometime cub scout chaperon, school volunteer, choir member, friend and weight watchers success.
Now I follow and read her posts with great enjoyment, whether it's a post about Mommy (her mother-in-law), adventures in boy scouts with Jude (and a refusal to wear a mom scout uniform), her efforts to entertain Jude at Camp Mama or just the trail and tribulations of being an actress mom in LA, she is always good for an entertaining read.
She gives me just a glimpse of a slightly more glamorous life than I lead here in the wilds of Wyoming.  And she always has yummy cocktails and recipes to share.
Really, you should go check her out.  Gretchen is a wonderful person, who I hope to meet in person one day.  But in California, not Wyoming, because sunny California would be so much fun and all that much more fun to meet a blogger I consider a friend.
(I'm skidding this in under the wire, because the sicks have been running around our house.)

  1. Oh Vandy!! Thank you SO much! What a wonderful Christmas gift! And you are most welcome to visit So. California any time you want, though I think I'd rather head for beautiful Wyoming! Oh, and thank you for not mentioning that we play endless silly games together on Facebook. Ha! Merry, merry Christmas!
