About Me

Welcome to Loripalooza!

I’m Lori Wescott- a thirty something freelance writer, author and humorist residing in Music City. You may have seen me in Awkward Smoking Pictures, various newspapers, and in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Matters. Also, I’ve been named Trophy Wife of the Year for ten years running according to one website (this one). I’m most proud of that accomplishment.

When I’m not writing humor, I’m usually writing music reviews for newspapers, falling down in public, or taking care of my adorable ginger son, Luke.

Winter To Do List

It’s already February and I have to say that I have been cracking away at my winter bucket list and New Year’s resolutions. Here are a few accomplishments that really solidify my my swagger.

  • Being named Trophy Wife of the Year for 2012. Caught be completely by surprise for the eighth year in a row.
  • Supervising Luke in hand making eleventy million Valentine’s. My house is covered in glitter and pom poms. 
  • Detoxing my son from candy. Although this has only occurred in the last week or so, it’s kind of amazing to see what happens when he gets his hands on a few Smarties, or God forbid a red ring pop. Katy, whoever you are, grab some rope and bar the freaking door. 
  • Giving up red meat in my super-slow attempt to one day go vegetarian. I also gave up pork, only to have a bacon and pepperoni relapse forty-eight hours later. Baby steps, as they say.
Pork-on-pork crime
