Mom Profile - Colleen Bohensky


This week, our mom in spotlight is Colleen Bohensky. Colleen is a mom of 2 girls, a blogger (at A Madison Mom and A Bit Bookish), and a social media addict who lives in Madison, NJ. You can reach Colleen at

Kids I have 2 girls.  Zoe is 9 and Ana is 6.

Describe Yourself Addicted to social media, books, and TV. Somewhat of a closet geek (although some are well aware of my geekiness). I'll never refuse a glass of wine. I love to travel. Above all, my family comes first.

Which town do you live in? I've lived in Madison since 2002.

What do you do for fun? I love to travel with my family. I always look forward to Moms night out (either with a group of school mom friends, or with my sister-in-law, Andrea). Nick and I enjoy filling up our DVR and then working our way through TV shows. If I have a free minute you can guess I'm either on the computer or have my kindle in my hands.

What are your best qualities? I tend to stay calm under pressure. I am pretty awesome at figuring out and following the most difficult of directions. If I tell you I'm going to do something you can be guaranteed I will do it (although you may find I procrastinate and finish the job at the last moment).  I would do just about anything for a good friend or family.  I think I'm a pretty good balance of logic and emotion.

What would you like to change about yourself? I wish I was more motivated about exercising. I just can't seem to find my "thing". I'm jealous of people that are passionate about walking, or tennis, or swimming, or biking. I wish I had that drive.

Favorite Place on Earth Probably at home. I do love Bermuda though.

Favorite Local Restaurant We've been going to Rocco's a lot lately. If I want to relax with a drink, we usually head to 54 Main for a Sangria.

Best Local Place to have Tea/Coffee If I have time to sit... I love Drip.  But I spend more time driving through Starbucks on my way to a million other places.

Best vacation I would hop on a cruise to just about anywhere at anytime.

Favorite Book Like I said... book addict (I read 20 books last month). But... the first book that comes to mind if Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness.

Favorite Movie Another tough question for me. I tend to be all over the place with favorite movie genres. Favorite classic... Breakfast Club. Favorite movie in the last year? Maybe Labor Day. Last move we saw? Guardians of the Galaxy.

Who would you like to be stranded with on a deserted island? Could it be a deserted island with internet and wifi?

If you were born again, what would you want to be? A house cat. Totally a house cat.

Best part of the day Right after the girls are in bed. It's that moment of feeling like I can finally take a deep breath and relax. Sitting on the couch, glass of wine in hand.

What do you hate the most? Hmm... pet peeves. Bad coffee. SLOW restaurant service. People who seem oblivious to other people... rudeness. Vanilla scented things.

What are you up to these days? I'm a Stay-At-Home-Mom and Blogger.  My job as Mom includes being a Girl Scout Juniors and Daisy leader this year.  I try to do a few volunteer jobs in school (class mom, lunch duty).
