My 20-year high school reunion is coming up. I have exactly one month to become wildly successful… and thin. *sigh*
About Christina-MarieChristina-Marie Wright is the manic mother of seven, wife to a real estate professional and political activist (the same guy—Mr. Wright) and author of the hilarious "Everything I Need to Know About Motherhood I Learned from Animal House," available on Amazon. After giving birth to one child—just to see if her body worked—she picked up four full-time stepchildren and two adopted children along her zigzagging path to (near) self-actualization. Her family isn’t “blended.” It’s “pureed.” That frothy blend of maternal mayhem includes: Princess (stepdaughter, b. 1990, Veterinary Medicine student), The Dude (stepson, b. 1993, employed, living on his own), Pockets (bio son, b. 1994, attending college), Pepper (stepdaughter, b. 1996, high school diva), GirlWonder (stepdaughter, b. 1997, middle school over-achiever), Curlytop (adopted daughter, b. 2005, special needs child allergic to Red Dye 40) and Snugglebug (adopted daughter, b. 2006, diagnosed Sensory Processing Dysfunction, also allergic to Red Dye 40). A vegan for over 15 years, and a Washington state native, Christina-Marie makes her home along the Columbia River, and the view from her living room is better than yours. She's also a sexual health consultant, and absolutely capable of teaching you how to find your G-spot. You can find Christina-Marie hanging out with a snifter of Southern Comfort at TheGonzoMama.com and SexyVeganMama.com.

Call me naïve, but I like to believe my intimate life is better than fiction, and I see no reason for disillusionment just yet. I did, however, read Dante’s Inferno, in which the nine circles of Hell are described. It was 20 years ago, and I can’t really remember much about the circles, but I have a pretty good (...Read More)
“My son graduates high school next week. Probably time to do something about that weight I gained from pregnancy…”
Dear Mother Nature, WHY does my volunteering for school Park Day ALWAYS mean rain? Sixty kids, pouring rain, no Southern Comfort… Are you kidding me?! Sincerely, Christina-Marie
Online, I’m “Sexy Vegan Mama” on my vegan cooking blog. In real life, I’m anything but sexy in the kitchen. Picture a flour-coated banshee, shrieking, “Keep your fingers out of the fudge!” and “Stop licking the bowl—it’s still full!” while knocking back Southern Comfort to prevent herself from putting the kids through a wall before she can put them through college. I’ve been writing a cookbook, you see. Curlytop and Snugglebug insisted on “helping,” of course, like five- and six-year-olds (...Read More)
