Ultimate Blog Party 2011 - Get Your Fake Party On

Pin It Now!
Welcome to Tales from the Motherhood and Confessions of a Former Childhood Actress . . .

Last year I gave up on having a real social life and decided to attend a virtual blog party. Totally weird - especially because it was actually kind of fun. I'm still trying to catch up on sleep from last year's fake rager.



Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Let's cut to the chase virtual people . . .
1. If you don't really give a rip about me or my blog or my dirty minivan and just want a prize, then scroll down and see how easy it is for you to win $100 gift card to Amazon and a copy of my book Totally Desperate Mom: Keepin' it Real in the Motherhood.

2. If you have money falling from the sky and use gift cards as mere bookmarks and are simply looking for a little love and affirmation by way of people commenting on your blog then scroll down and leave me a comment. I will visit your blog and leave you a comment even if it's only "Do you come here often?" Do you really need more than that?

But if you really like to virtual party and read blogs then allow me to introduce myself.

My name is Wendy, otherwise known as the Totally Desperate Mom. Not desperate like Desperate Housewives, but desperate to be the best mom to my Elijah (7), Lydia (almost 5), and Jordis (2 1/2).

Desperate to be an awesome wife to my man Shiloh. We have been married almost 13 years.

Every 13 years I get my hair and makeup done and this is what I look like. But a lot of days I look more like this:

I usually like my husband, but sometimes I don't. Like when I'm hormonal and pregnant and we are on our 10-year anniversary trip and he calls me Fatty Arms. Oops. I pay him back for that comment by telling women about it when I speak at women's events or MOPS groups. You can hear the whole story here:



I'm a Totally Desperate Mom cuz my almost 5 year-old, strong-willed daughter still pees her pants on a regular basis "just a little bit". My 2 1/2 year-old is newly potty trained and copies everything her sister does . . . just a little bit.


I am a Totally Desperate Mom cuz it is hard to keep up with laundry, dishes, cleaning up cat throw up, and homework. And when I let the homework go unattended it looks like this:


I am a Totally Desperate Mom because I do not sew or make fancy crafts, but I like admiring that junk on other people's blogs.

I am a Totally Desperate Mom cuz sometimes I have MBDs (mental breakdown days) and just need a break.

I am a Totally Desperate Mom cuz motherhood is the hardest, best job in the world.
You feel me?

So a lot of days I blog about that stuff. Honest, raw, hilarious, gross, classic stuff from the motherhood. You'll probably leave feeling better about yourself. And if you think you don't have room for more blogs in your life you might just want to check in here around Christmas time. Cuz that's when I post my family's worst family photos. I mean, who doesn't enjoy feeling better about themselves by seeing OPU (Other People's Ugly)?

And if you are up for a little random in your life . . . Wednesdays I post about my experiences as a child/teen actress.
Here's the snapshot into that action:
When I was 9 years old I looked in the yellow pages, called an agent, and left a message on their answering machine. Unbeknownst to my parents. That started my acting career which eventually led me to Hollywood after starring in numerous national commercials and print jobs in the San Francisco Bay Area. When I was 14, I got a starring role on the syndicated series The New Lassie. Moved to Hollywood, lived with friends of the family, filmed 48 episodes of the show at Universal Studios, guest starred in some other shows, and didn't go night clubbin' with my mom . . . or anyone else.
Here is a clip from The Wonder Years when I guest starred as Kevin's annoying and overbearing girlfriend, Julie Aidem:



And here are a few pics from my Hollywood days:
Circus of the Stars in 1990 with Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Jocelyn Peden

With Paul Walker

With a bunch of other young actors. Jason Marsden (red shirt), Christina Nigra (awesome neon cowgirl), and David Moscow (behind the tree in a sweet Gotcha sweatshirt) all did guest posts for me. And I have recently re-connected with Alyson Hannigan (baggy purple, green, and navy blue shirt) who I met on the Lassie audition over 22 years ago!


I left Hollywood and returned to my hometown so I could have a normal senior year of high school. Went on to UCLA, met my husband, got married, worked in real estate, taught group exercise classes, had some kids (including one sweet baby girl named Faith who ditched us for heaven after 4 days with us).

Last year, in a moment of temporary insanity I decided to write Totally Desperate Mom: Keepin' it Real in the Motherhood. Humor and encouragement for moms with little ones. When you are not busy fake parting, you can read the first chapter to see if it's worth your time. If you like it, you can buy it directly through me, on Amazon, or request it at your local Christian bookstore.

Speaking of Christian bookstores, I love Jesus. I don't blog about spiritual stuff a lot, but every now and then I bring it. You've been warned.

Congratulations if you survived that long post. You sure know how to party. Or maybe you are just really good at scrolling fast to get to the goods. Either way, you have some skillz.

Here is how to win a $100 gift card to Amazon.

1. Leave a comment. Any ol' comment will do. But I would love to hear if we have anything in common or a random fact about yourself and a link to your blog. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you are a winnner.

2. Follow this blog publicly. Don't be ashamed. Then leave a comment letting me know you did.

3. Follow me on Twitter. Then leave a comment letting me know you did. And just so you know, chances are good that I won't automatically follow you back. Here's why. Nothing personal.

4. Become a fan/liker of Totally Desperate Mom on facebook. Then leave a comment letting me know you did. Don't worry I won't clutter up your facebook page with a bunch of lame status updates. Only a few here and there. But I promise you - they will be lame.

5. Good for three entries: Purchase a copy of Totally Desperate Mom through my website or on Amazon and then leave 3 comments letting me you did. If you have already purchased a book just leave 3 comments letting me know you did. You won't be sorry because even if you don't like the book you can pass it along as a baby shower gift for someone else who you don't really like, but felt obligated to attend her baby shower. Or you could let your child use it as a coloring book or practice using scissors on it. So versatile.

*If after a month if this blog bores you, or you actually never read it, or my tweets bug - feel free to drop kick me in a month. I don't want to force you to be in this relationship under prize-induced duress.

Get your entries in by April 8th by 9pm PST. I will announce the winner on April 9th.

Head on over to 5 Minutes for Mom to further participate in this virtual partying! There are more prizes. I even threw in a $100 gift card to Target over there.

Pin It Now!

Kristin said...

Love reading, you crack me up! The homework is hilarious. Bodily functions seem to make my kids (all kids really) laugh hysterically. Kieran passed gas at his 5 year check up this week and announced to the doctor that he farted. While playing the Wii, he announced that the figure bending over looked like a big penis (he kinda did, haha! Tried hard not to laugh!) And, currently as I write this, they are laughing their heads off, talking about diapers, poop and diarrhea. I feel ya!

Omg! You are hilarious. You wanted a random fact or shared item, so, um, here goes... I used to model before I traded it all in for marriage, vomit, kids, pups and books. Fun stuff.

Kasey said...

Haha..this was great!!! I love honest feelings!! I am not sure if we have anything in common..except for the fact that my dream job would be acting..but before I could graduate college and move to the big ole' Hollywood or NYC..I got married and we had some babies. By some..I mean 5..all 3 and under! My husband and I have two sets of twins that are 10 months apart and another single babe that is 18 months younger than the youngest twins! :) My blog is www.wardellwonders.blogspot.com

So, here's the deal.

I don't know how you found me, but you did, and you left a comment.

My world changed for the better that day!

Okay, maybe that is a bit dramatic...but I have done nothing but scour your blog and laugh my larger-than-it-should-be bottom off since.

So glad to know this blog. I immediately added you to my reader, but I shall follow you on HERE now.

Thanks for the giveaway...but gift card or not, you're not getting rid of me (and my very full house) anytime soon.

Devin said...

Officially a follower.

Michelle said...

One little birthday party invitation in 10th grade has given me a friend in you that has been a joy and inspiration for way too many years to mention. I totally think you rock and am so so proud to call you my friend.

Michelle said...

I love to read and follow the bloggage!

Michelle said...

Just started the Twittering and started following you too!

Devin said...

Alrighty. Got all set up following you on Twitter too.

Michelle said...

I don't just Like you, I Like Like you on FB.

Devin said...

Didn't know there was another totally desperate mom on FB besides myself. But I'm now a fan!

Michelle said...

I bought your book, read it, laughed, cried, and realized that we are all just trying to do the best we can. because of you I try really hard to be more fun and less type A, OCD, uptight.

Michelle said...

Bought your book and shared it with a pregnant friend of mine and she loved it too.

Michelle said...

Bought your book, shared it with friend, and have not gotten it back yet so may have to head over to said friend's house and bring the Guido in order to get personally autographed book back from her.

Sarah said...

I actually kind of wish this wasn't a giveaway post because I was going to comment regardless - it was an awesome post in many respects!
First, I LOVE the homework picture, thank you for sharing the silly and mortifying things about your life (at least, I would have been mortified and laughing out loud at the same time!).
And I have a fondness in my heart for Alyson Hannigan since my husband and I became Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans a couple years ago.
I love your blog and follow it in my google reader, so I am able to keep up with it everyday. You always evoke SOMETHING in me whether it's a smile, laugh, tears, or reassurance! haha

Sarah said...

What the heck... I'll join in the attempts to win your book, which I would probably enjoy EVEN more than the amazon giftcard! :)

First of all, you know I think you are RAD. I am throwing out that word after being inspired by the Gotcha sweatshirt. How I loved Gotcha, Maui and Sons and Stussy. I am still laughing about the homework. I think I might have peed my pants. just a little. :)

Alyssa said...

I actually stopped and read this whole post...because it was interesting and I "get" your humor :). What do we have in common? One of my interests is filmmaking. Oh! Writing! I write all the time. I'm a freelance writer and an aspiring author. And I'm 17.

I posted 10 random facts about myself on my blog so you'll have to stop by if you want random facts about me ;).

(Unless you count all of the above as being random...)

Christina - xristya@rock.com - Your site is lovely and we have a little in common in that I did a local television program about the arts for many years. However at heart I'm a poet/artist and now do book, music and movie reviews on the web to support my creative efforts. I don't have a blog of my own but am glad I came in contact with yours at UBP 2011!

grateful4babies said...

I have loved your blog since the day I found it. I follow your blog for a lot of reasons, one being that I like seeing the world the way you do. Does that sound weird?
Anyway, you very kindly left a comment on my blog a while ago. It made my day!
Anyway, you are great and you point people to Jesus in such a fun and loving way.

I'm totally your newest follower because I remember watching "The New Lassie" when I was little! So neat! I also love that Kevin has a popped collar on his shirt all those years ago, guys who wear it like that today are probably unaware it started on The Wonder Years! haha! It's good to see that not all child actors turn out with crazy lives...that you have a great little family and have been successful as an adult in making a good life!

Have fun partying it up this year at the UBP 2011! I know I am!

Trying the link-thing again to see if it works this time. Maybe I had a typo the last time?

Anyway, thanks for visiting me and fake-partying at my place! =)

I'm visiting you from the UBP and am now your newest follower!

I love your humour and look forward to reading more. Yes, I am a Canadian and that's how we spell humour LOL.

GunDiva said...

Wendy, you crack me up! I even stayed for the whole post. :) I wish I'd had such a good attitude when my kids were little - I was far too stressed to find humor in much.

GunDiva said...

And, I follow your blog (have for a while - do I get longevity points for that?).

Jolene said...

I enjoyed your posting. I had a smile the entire time and laughed out loud at times. I will definitely be looking forward to your next post. I can relate so much to your home life, taking care of children and cat puke. I hate the same things about housework. I wish I stayed at home still. Your Christmas picture is GREAT! What a good looking family you have. Please stop by http://richjmylife.blogspot.com/2011/04/2011-ultimate-blog-party.html

I think its its 100% fabulous that you can identify the Gotcha sweatshirt. I'm pretty sure I follow on Twitter as @mamatomjr. My kids are little too, and close together. There's not too much glamour in my life either :o)

I am following you (suelee1998) from the blog hop party, you have a great site. Would you like to follow me back? http://susansdisneyfamily.blogspot.com/
thank you :)

Lexiquin said...

You made me laugh--thanks! Even in your very short Twitter bio "No criminal record." LOL - Wish everyone was so candid. We may not have too much in common--I'm not a blogger, wasn't a child actress, and I don't get my hair & makeup done every 13 years (I know, I sound just a little bit envious--sorry). What we do have in common: we both love God and our families. So glad I met you. Thanks for participating in #UPB11

Lexiquin said...

@Lexiquin follows you on Twitter.
It was interesting reading why you don't automatically follow back. I am so ignorant--I don't even know how to use Hoot Suite!
It would help if I had more followers (although maybe there'd be pressure to tweet something profound) because I am limited in how many I can follow (there must be some sort of mysterious ratio), meaning I can't keep adding unless I get more followers. When I first started using social media (a mere year ago), I blindly followed... In addition, there are always optional entries for following the host & the sponsor of a giveaway, so my numbers quickly added up. In fact, I had to unfollow someone before I was able to follow you :)
I'm slowly weeding out some of the meaningless Tweeps I followed.
