About Beth

Welcome to The Goon Room! The title of this blog is an homage to my college sorority house and the lovely little space we called The Goon Room. It was filled with couple of couches, a few sisters and a lot of chatter. The conversations ranged from life to love and always the pursuit of a good tan. Much like the conversations in the sorority house, The Goon Room blog has a little of everything. Enjoy!

    We’ve never met, but I married your friend Melissa Cattaneo’s cousin Doug. I went to U of A a few year before you, and was an A-Phi too. I lived right outside of Goon Room, so I was happy to see the title of your blog. I just wanted to comment to say I loved your postings. They were really funny! Thanks for the good laugh! Sounds like you have a very fun life! Keep up the good work with your daughter!

    I really enjoy your blog!

    I have a question for you. I work for Today’s Mama….http://todaysmama.com/, and also do some blogging for them. Part of my job is recruiting bloggers in different categories in the various markets across the country. We do have an Arizona market, and I love your blog! Would you have any interest in doing some blogging for us? I think that you would be a great fit for our “Parenting” category…we ask that you write in your category 2/3 of the time, and the other 1/3 you can write a blog about whatever you would like. The goal is to post once a week.

    Let me know if you have any interest…we would like to see original material, but you can certainly link back to your blog and add a link about your blog in your bio. We would love to have you join us!

    Thank you!

    P.S. I went to U of A too! I miss Tucson… 🙂

    Need mommy help!

    I am a Chandler, AZ mom of three great kids ages 3-8. During our trips to the library, I was discouraged by the lack of “meaningful” book selections for my two boys, finding that most middle-grade fiction was “entertainment only.” I wanted them to read books like the ones I loved as a kid, ones with “a moral to the story”. So, I decided to write what I lovingly call “a modern day fable”.

    The Inbetweens (now available on Amazon.com and Kindle Direct) is an action packed adventure that follows three young protaganists during their one day cross-country “coming of age” journey. It is aimed at an audience of 6-12 year olds. I am reaching out to AZ moms and dads in hopes that you will read my novel and provide a review for possible inclusion in advertising and promotion.

    If you are interested in receiving a copy, please email me at theinbetweens(at)rocketmail(dot)com!

    I’ve been browsing your site and I love it. I like that besides your posts you have other resources as well. I am a mom of a thirteen year old daughter so as she approaches adulthood I want to be able to prepare her for what life’s curve balls she may encounters. So I am always into self-help and the advice of others. I look forward to following you and the other’s who’d you recommend. Have a great day.

    A little snark and sass are always a good thing especially in the blogging world because laughing is one of the most awesome activities around. I do like the blog, it’s classy snark 🙂
