I am so happy to be a part of the 13th #AskAwayFriday! This is my favorite time of the week. I get to sit down and get to know another of my favorite Bloggers or even meet a brand new Blogger! What better way to head into the weekend?
This week I am swapping questions with one of my #BloggerBFFs Penny from The Real Housewife Of Caroline County. It’s hard to believe it has taken us this long to exchange but it’s always great to get to
grill I mean get to know a friend a bit more. Penny is an awesome Wife who is totally in love with her husband’s beard, a Stay At Home Mom who absolutely adores her two little girls and a Blogger who can Link, Hop and Support with the best. If you want to know someone on the rise I suggest you get to know Penny – The Real Housewife of Caroline County…
First, get to know me through Penny’s questions and then don’t forget to head over to Penny’s and find out her answers to my questions…I came up with some pretty good ones if I don’t say so myself..wait I guess I do say so! LOL 😉
1. Do you think it’s better to get married when you’re young or better to wait a while?
I don’t think you can out a number to when a person is ready for marriage. It all depends on their maturity level and when they know there are truly in love and ready to commit to being there for another person completely. Age doesn’t necessarily determine that.
2. Do you like to plan things out in detail or be spontaneous?
Oh. I plan. Plan. Plan. Then I review the plan and plan a back up plan. Spontaneity is something I have to plan for…LMBO! It is truly something I have to work at which is know seems totally against the definition of the word but it just doesn’t come easy for me. Hubby is great at it which is why we make a great partnership…he truly does complete me.
3. What was your life like growing up?
My life was a bit confusing at times. I was raised by my grandmother from infancy and in the church from the time I could remember. I have 2 sisters who were raised by my mother. This lead to a lot of confusion between us because I always
felt feel like an only child with two close friends instead of an older sibling. We work through it as best we can but I don’t think we can ever be as close as siblings who were raised in the same household with the same foundations and belief systems.
4. Who in your life has influenced you the most? How did they do it?
My Grandmother has definitely been the biggest influence on my life. She set me on my path and helped guide me in ways I am still discovering. I’ve shared parts of my story growing up with her here
5. If you could learn one random skill, what would you learn?
I would really like to learn how to crochet. My grandmother used to do it all the time and made blankets for my 2 older Kiddies. unfortunately they were destroyed and she no longer crochets. Now I truly wish I learned when I was younger and she was able to teach me.
6. What’s the biggest personal change you ever made?
Probably marrying my Hubby. I was 27 but everyone still saw me as their younger cousin, niece, granddaughter etc. No one felt I was old enough (in their minds) to be anyone’s wife. Still I knew in my heart that I was. Almost 10 years later, I am glad I followed my heart.
7. What did you do on your 16th birthday?
My older cousin gave me a surprise birthday party
at my church. Yup, it was after a church meeting or choir rehearsal of some sort. It was really cool because I’d never had a true Birthday party but I was a bit frustrated because I felt EVERYthing was at my church. LOL
8. If you knew you would die tomorrow, would you feel cheated today?
Not at all. I love God and have tried my best to give Him the best of me. I married the love of my life and my bestestest friend in the world. I have been given the honor of being the Mother to the best children ever (sorry folks I’m biased) and I have lived every moment with them to the fullest. I am happy, blessed and content.
9. What’s one of your favorite questions to ask new friends or to get a conversation going?
I’m not sure. I am actually pretty shy and normally don’t initiate conversation. I guess I just say “Hi, my name is…”
10. If someone were to make a movie about your life, who would you hope would play you?
Haha! you can kinda refer back to a few of my past #AskAwayFriday posts for this one… Tia Mowry I feel we have the most similar quirks and personality traits and/or Alicia Keys because I am simply in love with her dramatic acting skills!
Don’t forget to head over to The Real Housewife of Caroline County to check out all the other great Bloggers who have Linked Up for this week’s #AskAwayFriday AND see how Penny answered my questions!
