#AskAwayFriday Blogger To Blogger W/Tracie From Phenomenal Mama


#AskAwayFriday this week is going to be wonderful, why? I get to swap with a woman who’s very name says it all! The lovely Tracie from PhenomenalMama. She describes herself pretty simply:

 

phenomenalmama

“Wife of man. Mother of two. Student of life.

Sharing experiences from my journey.

Mostly random thoughts and stories but every now

and again you might find something phenomenal.”

Yet if you stay on her Site for anything longer than 5 minutes you will see that there is that and so much more to her. She is a woman gifted with creativity, knowledge and kindness. Tracie is more than willing to share her gifts and that is something that I admire and find so uplifting about her. She not only has PhenomenalMama but she is also a Collaborative Partner for Love. Work. Repeat. a site dedicated to providing information and knowledge about marriage and family and one I am proud to say has found a new follower in me! Tracie is also a freelance web designer with her own site TM Creative Design. Didn’t I tell you she was so much more than she let on?

AskAwayFridayQuestions

Here we go! The best part of #AskAwayFriday…Questions! 10 Questions from Tracie for me to answer. No excuses. No skips. No passes. Honest and complete answers. Are you ready? I am. Let’s do this!

1. What is one word you would use to describe your blog?
  • Oooh! You just went right in with the hard one, huh? ME!
  • When I came up with the identity of my Blog I put in a lot of thought and effort to be sure it was as close to being ME on screen as possible. In design, content and quality. I wanted someone to visit my site and within a few scrolls and clicks feel like they were meeting ME.
2. What is one word you would use to describe yourself?
  • LAYERED
  • People tend to meet me and make assumptions and draw conclusions based off the fact that I ‘appear’ to be very shy. I am a true to definition introvert. I am very awkward in larger crowds and new situations BUT if you take the time to get to know me and give me the time to get to know you there can be so many other layers to my personality. I’m funny, nerdy, kind, loving and supportive of those around me.
  • This is one of the ways my Blog reflects me as well…3 Layers: Love, Life and Laughter
3. Who was your favorite elementary school teacher and why?
  • Ms. S – She was my Science teacher and she was also from India and we could never spell or pronounce her name correctly so we simply called her Ms. S.
  • She was my favorite teacher because she opened up to me a love and interest in Science that I never thought I could have. I was the “Eww that’s disqusting!” girl. Yet after her 4th grade Science class I became the total girl scientist.
  • I went into Middle School and High School with my gloves on and willing to do any and every experiment they put in front of me.
4. If they made a movie of your life, who would be cast to star as you?
  • Ha! This is funny. I would say Tia Mowry. I have always thought I had similar features to her (even more so than her sister) and I even posted her photo on Doppleganger day on Twitter and Guess What? No One Noticed until the day was half over! LMBO
  • Plus we both seem to enjoy a great #DuckFaceSelfie 😀

5. What song would you consider your “fight ” song? (The song that pumps you up and motivates you to get things done.)
  • Easy Peasy! Superwoman By Alicia Keys!

6. What has been your proudest life moment so far?
  • I know this is the typical Momma answer but it has to be giving birth to each of my Kiddies…especially my youngest because it was just me and my Hubby on our own in Hawaii and I was scared out of my mind but WE did it TOGETHER!
7. What is one of your guilty pleasures that not many people know about?
  • I’m an undercover Gamer! I love to de-stress with a great fight game. I can get caught up and actually end up playing for HOURS! LOL 😉

8. What do you miss about your life before becoming a mom?
  • Hmmm….that’s a hard question for me since I’ve been a Momma from the age of 17 and I can’t really remember being anything else before that besides a kid myself. I’ll say it like this. I wish my Hubby and I had more time to spend as a couple. Right now almost everything we do is with Kiddies attached. So I do wish we had that time to court and date as Just Us.
9. Who is your celebrity crush?
  • I’m not sure I could say I have a Celebrity Crush per se…there are a few that I think are handsome, cute, etc. but to take them to the level of a crush…eh?
  • Yet we said no skips or passes so to pick someone I would have to go with Vin Diesel..I like his look (obviously) but I like his acting and his physique as well and I actually really like his voice as well (I know odd right…? lol)

10. What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?
  • I wouldn’t buy anything. I would pay off all our debt and then take my Kiddies on their dream vacation to Disneyworld or land whichever or maybe BOTH 😀

    Isn't it amazing the impact a good teacher can have on you?! My friend and I were talking about this just the other day. I remember the teachers that made a positive impact on me quite well. Unfortunately I also remember the ones that had a negative impact. Fun link party again this time around!

    • MrsTee Post author

      I remember most of my negative ones as well…lol…but luckily they left no lasting impact on me… 😉 It was great having you…hope to see you next week!

  • Mrs.AOK

    I love your answers 🙂 Yes, we do have to swap someday! I like a good video game hour or two myself (:

    My husband and I use to play Madden *all the time* together.

    I do see the resemblance by the way; did you know Tia & Tamera are Army brats {like me} there mom was stationed where I grew up 🙂

    I like your layers! I think people would see me as an introvert, but once you get to know me…

    XOXO

    • MrsTee Post author

      Really?!? Wow we have a lot of things in common… a fellow gamer! LOL 😉 Yes I know…I have been watching Tia&Tamera since I was 12 or 13…well sine we were (I'm the same age they are…LOL)
      Thank you…yeah same here…get to know me and you're in for an adventure.. 😀

  • Brittnei

    These are so awesome! So far, I do agree with the layers of your personality. I think most people have them but I feel like when I read your blog, you take the time to explore those layers more and more..it really is a joy to get to know you through your blogging and our Twitter DMs hahaha! Aww I think that is so sweet about your Science Teacher! That was a nice question. What an impact she must have had that you can remember her after all these years. XoXo!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thank you! I'm glad that I am coming through I my writing and through my Blog…Mission Accomplished! 🙂 LOL No but that truly means a lot…I honestly want a person to feel like they've 'met' me through my site and my writing.

      Yes Ms. S was an awesome teacher…I kept up with her for a bit through High School but I think she went back to India and we lost contact.

  • Jhanis

    I had a dream about you and Mrs.AOK that we all went on a vacation to San Francisco! When I woke up I was like "okay, was that the real blogosphere dimension?" LOL

    Sorry I'm not linked up. I'll be prepared next week 😀

    • MrsTee Post author

      Wow! That's awesome! Is it weird I feel special to be included in the dream? LOL Maybe we will be going to a Blogger Conference together?!?!?!?! THAT would be so COOL!

      It's ok…if you need a partner next week just drop us a line and I'm sure we can either find you someone or I'll do a double link up…I don't want you to miss out…

  • Chan

    I really loved to read your answers and getting to know you better. I'm listening to the song now. I can understand that it motivates you. Really motivating words. Thanks for sharing.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thank you! I have listened to that song since it's release and it always makes me reflect on my days as a Single/Teen Mom and the moments when I felt overwhelmed during my Hubby's deployment…'even when I'm a mess I still put on my best with an S on my chest…I'm a SUPERWOMAN!" 😀

  • Dana

    So glad to be a part of #AskAwayFriday this week! This is my first visit to your blog, and this post is a great way to "meet" you. I love how you described yourself as layered – I usually say complex, but I think layered is a much better adjective. Have a great weekend!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Hi Dana! So glad to have you as a part of #AskAwayFriday…I will be over to your post to 'meet' you soon….lol I chose layered because I don't usually show my full self to people right away they have to 'peel' them back sorta speak

      I hope you liked my blog and that this won't be your last visit…thanks so much for stopping by 🙂

  • Megan

    Yes! Vin Diesel! I loooove him and my husband makes fun of me alll the time because he's not exactly the best actor, but who needs to be when you look like that? It is his voice that gets me too though…

  • Tracie

    AWESOME!!! This was so much fun, thank you for trading questions with me and inviting me to participate! I have to say, I am surprised by some of your answers. . .would have never guessed you were a gamer! I think my son wishes I was into it. . .I am the WORST at video games. I happen to like Superwoman by Alicia Keys but ironically my fight song is her song New Day featuring Dr. Dre and 50 Cent! LOL! And now that you mention it, you do favor the Mowry twins! Good answer! Looking forward to reading the other #AskAwayFriday entries.

    PS: Thanks SO much for the compliments, my face hurts from smiling so much! :-))))

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks! I'm so glad I didn't miss the opportunity to swap with you…I'm over at your page right now! Yes, my gamer skills and love always surprises people. I think growing up the only girl in a bunch of guy cousins has a bit to do with it and then being the only female in my house until my Girlies was born didn't help either 😉 As for the compliments, you totally deserve them!
