Finally a New Post!

Well hello out there! Sorry I have been a stranger, but I was a bit busy bringing a beautiful child into this world! ;) Yes, after what felt like an eternity being pregnant - I finally gave birth! Ivy Rose was born on 3/3/12 weighing in at 7 lbs 2 oz.
So, yes, now I have TWO babies - under the age of ONE. No, I have no idea how I'm doing it. IF I'm even doing it!
But these two beautiful babies are in my life now, and let me tell you - THIS is the hardest job I've ever had. Shoot - this is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life! But the most beautiful and rewarding thing I've ever done. No, I'm not getting any sleep. And yes, there are really hard days where I fantisize about my cushy life as an actress in Hollywood - but I wouldn't take any of it back! My happiness that used to be fulfilled by bookings and days on set have been replaced by smiles and laughter by these two little munchkins. And all that time in California, when I felt like something was "missing" - I think I found it - in these two. :) Man, they've even made me mushier! Lol So I have turned into a SAHM. (That's a mom acronym for "Stay at Home Mom".) But I did find out this week that I booked a role on the PBS series The Latino Americans that is shooting here in Texas! :) I didn't even have to audition. I submitted my headshot and was cast from that. Nice. I work one day at the end of this month - which makes it easier for me to do it. Life is good. Life is REALLY good....
