Jennifer Evers is a 40-something blogger and small business owner living in the Chicago suburbs with her two young daughters and a DVR full of reality television shows.

She blogs about her life at Me, Myself and Jen (www.memyselfandjen.com ) - single parenting, recipes, crafts and home projects, crazy things her children do, travel, celebrity encounters, community events and those wacky "Real Housewives."

She's also a social media specialist, providing social media marketing, training and event promotion through her consulting business, MM&J Consulting.

Always in need of a vacation, Jennifer fantasizes about being stuck on a deserted island with her MacBook, a large quantity of her favorite wine and her long-time obsession (aka "Hollywood Husband"), writer Aaron Sorkin (Moneyball, The Social Network), in the hopes of making him fall madly in love with her. Or at least introducing her to the cast of "The West Wing."
