It's A Sisterhood

My girl Whitney all the way over on the west coast nominated me for the

Whitney gave me 10 questions to answer and then nominate some of my fellow sistas from other mistas to do the same :)
So here we go!

1. Why did you start blogging?
Honestly, I was in a odd place in my life where I felt like I lost sight of who I was.
I started this as an outlet to rediscover me.
That was almost 2 1/2 years ago, and I am so happy I did!
I have found out more about myself through this blog than I ever imagined.
And I have become friends with some amazing ladies as well :)

2. What is your favorite social media outlet?
Instagram by far!
I much rather look at pictures all day than read status updates or tweets.

3. What is something you wish you were better at?
Being a mom!
It is no easy task for me,  but I have friends that it is so easy and natural for.
I have 0 patience, so I am guessing that plays a big part in it for me :/
I just can't seem to figure out how to balance working full-time, doing laundry, cleaning the house, making dinner, and handling X.
Any tips?

4. Share the link to your favorite blog post.
This one is tough!
Since this is a Lifestyle Blog I like a lot of what I post because it usually involves my family :)
So I narrowed it down to a few posts that always make me smile.
My Blueberry Croissant Puff - I am adding this to next week's menu!

5. What is your #1 piece of Mommy Advice?
After reading my answer to #3, what advice could I possibly give?
I would have to say, make sure you take time for yourself once in awhile.
You, and your kids will be better off!
I know when I actually get a chance to workout I am a whole new me and the little things don't get to me as much.
Meaning I can focus a lot better on enjoying my time with X :)

6. Favorite author or book?
I am not a big book person, but I have read all of the Tori Spelling books.
I loved her on 90210 and I love her books!
I enjoy the Duck Dynasty books too when I have a chance to read them.

7. What is your most used phrase or word?
Hmm...when typing I use "lol" a lot!
Otherwise, it is usually..."mommy said stop" or mommy said no" or "go to sleep".

8. Do you view blogging as a hobby or a job? Why?
Some days I wish it were a job, but it is definitely a hobby.
I work a full time job at our financial practice, so that is all this can be.
Unless, of course some one wants to pay me :)

9. Favorite Summer activity?
If it wasn't for all the rain we have had this summer, I would be making all of our dinners on the grill!
Steaks, burgers, hot dogs, ribs, corn, pizza, etc.

10. Where do you see yourself in  10 years?
Just realized I will have an actual teenager in 10 years! AHHH!
I would love to say I will be an older, but healthier and happier version of the same me I am today :)
Other than that, who knows!

Nominations - Simple, I nominate you all to comment below with your answers to #4, #7, and #10 :)

And you know what today is!
Make sure to link your Thursday post below, and link back to X-tremely V and Penny's Passion as well :)


  1. I about died- "go to sleep" I say this A LOT! Haha. What does that say about my mothering?! Im so glad you did this, I love getting to know that much more about the bloggers I adore :)

  2. LOL'ing about 90210 and Tori! Ah, those were the days! I have all the seasons on DVD, FYI :) No advice on Mommyhood. I have 3 and I just keep praying, girl! I agree, take time for yourself, and love as much of the journey as you can. It's super cliche but "they are only young once." In the heat of daily battle, that doesn't help but when they're in bed and you have time to reflect, just take a moment to appreciate :) And order take out once in awhile! That's all I got, girlfriend! XOXO

  3. How funny we did the same post on the same day :)

    I can relate to the mommy advice, sometimes I feel like I'm just blundering through being a mother :/

    and I love instagram, really need to stop spending so much time instagramming and focusing on other things.

  4. My most used phrase lately No Bella, I think she might think her name is nobella...haha. She's already giving us a run for our money, we are so in trouble when the pre-teen and teenage years come! In 10 years I want to be retired and just carting my kids around to their activities, crafting up a storm and just enjoying life instead of being at a desk all day! Yes to taking time for yourself, one of the reasons I started my blog too!

  5. You have to keep me updated with the next blogger meetup!! :)

  6. I completely get it with the no patience! I think mine is getting worse! UGH! Thank God for grace - I need it!!!

  7. I love this! I feel like I'll be the same way when parenting. I have zero patience now, but I'm hoping that will change when I have kids.
