Dude Mom is a humor, lifestyle blog written by the best mom in the world. In her free time she enjoys losing weight easily, looking like a soap star the moment she rolls out of bed, and riding around town on her unicorn. Also, she may be slightly delusional.

In addition to having a loose grip on reality, Dude Mom enjoys traveling to far off lands (or, not so far off lands) with her family, and helping moms up their style awesome by sharing easy, affordable, and stylish wardrobe tips. As someone who has had a fashion intervention by two of America’s most well known stylists (yep, she was on What NOT to Wear) and lived to tell the tale, she knows that giving up the yoga pants is nearly as hard as giving up chocolate (having recently lost 45lbs she can tell you all about that pain too!).

The mom behind the blog is a former Teach for America middle school language arts and social studies teacher.  She left the classroom for SAHM life and instead became a professional photographer, freelance writer, blogger, social media director, brand spokesperson, and general director of awesomeness.  She reluctantly resides in Maryland with her husband, baby dog daughter, and three small Dudes where she laments leaving the California sunshine on a daily basis.  #GoNiners
