books vs. broom

Welcome, Modern Mrs. Darcy readers! I’m so glad you came to visit. If you stood at my actual front door, I’d invite you in (it’s cold out there!) – but I’d also cringe as you caught sight of my So Very Dirty floors.

I’d say it’s not always like that but, well, IT IS.

Since you’re here now and we’ve gotten that awkward conversation out of the way, I’ll also tell you not to bother looking around for my bookshelves. If I had any (other than the kids’) in the house, I’d be happy to let you sneak a peek at their contents. But sadly, bookshelves were a casualty in the Deep Cleaning & Decluttering Extravaganze of ’13. Oh, how I miss them, though. Anne’s bookshelf posts have left me with SERIOUS bookshelf envy!

You’re welcome to flip open my Kindle Fire, though – or rifle through the piles of books on my nightstand or in my dresser or the backseat of my car or in the garage on top of the deep freeze.

I’m about as good at staying decluttered as I am at cleaning my floors.

Also…are you planning a Superbowl party? (Or book club kickoff or Valentine’s Day class party?) If so, you might like my ebook, Plan a Fabulous Party {without losing your mind}. And in case you need a cheesy, spicy appetizer to take to one of those parties, don’t miss my Jalapeno Popper Dip!

What should you watch next?


Every month, we are bombarded with new TV series and movies—and it can be overwhelming to figure out what to watch! (I know, I know, what a problem to have!) I'm here to help. My monthly Watch Guides list out all the returning series, new series, and new movies, along with premiere dates and where to watch them. Plus, I tell you my personal picks for the month to help you narrow it all down.

Drop your name and email here, and I'll send you this month's Watch Guide right away!

(Signing up gives me permission to email you. But I will never, ever send you spam or junk. Who has time for that?!)
