I was recently nominated by Basically Bella, I haven’t done a question and answer thing like this since probably Xanga (anyone remember that blog site?). I hope you enjoy…and if you want to check out new blogs I nominated some people at the bottom.
1. How did you come to start your blog?
I actually started my blog when I was still interning in college. Once I graduated I aspired to be one of the great teacher bloggers and create lessons and sell stuff on Teacherspayteachers. It never actually happened and instead of selling I bought hundreds of dollars worthway too much stuff on there! After having Bennett I started blogging as a way to do something when he was napping, and just a way to connect with the people outside of my house. It has become a little difficult to do every day with aBennett’s busy social calendar, and I enjoy spending my time with him so blogging takes place when I am not so tired and have a free minute to myself. You can always catch up with me on instagram.
2. What do you look for in other blogs when searching for new ones to follow?
I used to love reading teacher blogs, that was the majority of my feedly feed. Since having a baby and being a stay at home mom, I have since enjoyed reading people’s blogs who have things in common with where I am at in my life. I love reading about DIY projects, favorite baby items, favorite recipes, quick hair styles…anything about your life I enjoy!
3. What is your favorite book, and if you don’t read, movie?
I wrote about this about a week ago…I have done a really bad job reading lately. Shame completely on me for not picking up a book and reading it…but really I enjoy spending my time with my baby and my husband and blogging to read a book. I love the Hunger Games and Shopaholic series, but here are some of my favorites as a kid and teen though–
4. If you could be anyone from any time in history, who would it be?
There are quite a few people that I find very intriguing, and who I would love to see how they lived and just be a little bit like them.
Christopher Columbus- because I want to see how what it was like to actually discover land. How amazing of a job to go search for undiscovered places. I know, I know…it wasn’t all the fun.
Whitney Houston- for her voice, oh if I could only sing like her!
Princess Diana- I would love to have the heart that she did to help others
Audrey Hepburn- for her amazing class and style
5. What is your favorite love story you know (real or fiction)
I obviously love my love story…which you can read all about here. One of my favorite in a book is anything from Nicholas Sparks. I love his love stories and any of these stories will send me into a super sap fest.
6. What’s your one, never fail beauty secret?
Always wear mascara. 😉
7. If you could visit anywhere, where would it be?
I really would love to go back to England with my hubby. I want to show him everywhere I went when I interned over there, and stay at the same bed and breakfast. I really miss it, and will go back someday!
