|Me in my only bikini ever!|
Hi there, I’m Liwen, also known as Mama Ho. I’m a wife and mother of 2 who was born and raised as a square gal (though with a round head). This blog shares my road to recovery in trying to become a more well-rounded person.
I love family beach days, musicals, the color pink and white chocolate macadamia nut ice cream. In my former life (before kids), I received a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Western Seminary and worked as a counselor. Nowadays, I am gaining real life, hands-on experience as a stay at home mom. I’ve also embarked on a new adventure of being a freelance writer and author.
If this is your first time here, I’m so glad you stopped by! 🙂 Feel free to browse around to learn more about:
~ My munchkins, via the “Mamahood” category.
~ My hubby, via the “Marriage” category.
~ My journey as a writer, as well as book-related news, such as cover reveals and author interviews, via the “Makings” category.
~ My not-so-deep thoughts about my Christian faith and life lessons, via the “Musings” category.
~ My “Monday Mentionables” series (currently on hiatus due to everything I’m juggling in life!) that highlights some fun things that get me going on those manic Mondays.
Some random/fun facts to know…
1. I got the nickname “Mama Ho” from my girlfriends after I became a mom. I’m also known as Linguini (by my college friends – Go Bears!), Joe (by my lil sis, whom I call Gloo), Honey (by my hubby, whom I also call Honey), and MO-OM! (by my kids, whom I refer to on the blog as E and C).
2. The name of this blog was inspired by Huey Lewis and the News’s song, “Hip to be Square” (from the dark ages of the 1980’s). When my hubby first reserved the blog name for me, he picked “2 square 2 be heep” (must be the Chinese accent – LOL!).
3. I love, love, love makeovers of all kinds! I believe in the power of hope, potential and change. “Before and after” pictures and stories make me happy.
4. I include a song with each post and in case you’re wondering – the post or the song, which comes first? I usually write the blog posts before picking the songs that go with them, but once in a while I’ll hear a song on the radio that will inspire a post.
In case you were wondering, here are some of my favorite posts to help get you started:
