#AskAwayFriday Blogger To Blogger W/Michelle at The MaMade Creations


Happy #AskAwayFriday everyone!  I am so excited this week to be connecting with my new friend Michelle from The MaMadeDiaries.

MaMadeDiaries

Michelle is a twenty-something year old Mom (I know her age but seriously I’ll let her share that…) to a great little boy who is turning 2 on Monday folks!  Everyone be sure to take a moment and wish him a Happy Birthday when you stop by her page(ahem…please go by her page…I’m getting ready to clue you in on why!).

Michelle is a Crafter and get this: a Crochter…er…er (Ok so I don’t know the proper term but she crochets…a lost art in my eyes) turned Blogger…and she is a great Blogger!  Not only does she love spending her time making really great crafts, crocheting awesome stuff and running her ETSY business MaMade Creations …

On top of making all of these great creations and Blogging she is also an Awesome mom and somehow she still finds the time to float around the Social Media circuit like a true Social Media Butterfly in training.  Who would think she’s only been blogging for a little over a month?

 

For this week’s #AskAwayFriday, we are putting Michelle’s interview skills to the test and she got to ask me 10 Questions…so here goes:

AskAwayFridayQuestions

1. What is one event that changed your life dramatically and how?

I would have to say the year we had to move to Hawaii.  It was the biggest move I’d ever made and i had to do it all alone because my Hubby was there for 3 months ahead of me.  I was also almost 8 months pregnant during the move and the 3 flights it took to get there.  Oh and did I mention I had a 9 month old baby and a 10 year old with me too?  LOL  

The move and the entire process did teach me that I had a lot more strength and confidence than I thought I did.  By the end of it I learned that my Hubby’s saying “Nothing Beats A Failure But A Try” was one that could be true if you set your mind to it.

2. What is your absolute favorite thing about being a mom?

Wow…you want me to pick just one?  That’s hard when you have 6 purely awesome Kiddies!  😀  Really, each one of my Kiddies are my Absolute Favorite thing about being a mom.  They are the best pieces of my heart and I love them more than I could have ever imagined.  When I look at each of them I can see a piece of me…literally…they each have a part of my personality and I find it amazing to watch and help them develop and learn themselves daily.  

3. What made you decide to start blogging?

A desire to write and have feedback from someone other than the voice in my head.  LOL.  I’ve always kept journals and written my thoughts on paper and even in my phone when I needed to vent or simply ‘let go’ of something but when I heard how blogging could be a venue for actually feedback it peaked my interest.  

I also wanted to explore the possibility of having my blog act as a second source of income.  I want to be home with my Kiddies but I also want to be able to contribute and provide for my home as well.

4. What is your favorite season and why?

I was born in the summer so I favor it a bit but I would say my complete favorite would actually be fall.  It’s not bone chilling frigid like winter but I can still layer and wear my favorite sweaters, boots and scarfs and all the earth tone colors that I love.

5. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I think I would go to Puerto Rico…I’ve always loved the culture and how beautiful the country is.  Yet, honestly I would love to go anywhere Sans Kiddies at this point….LOL  Momma and the Hubby need a vacay ASAP 😀

6. How do you balance blogging and family life?

Right now, not very well.  I’m still learning how to get the two to co-mingle.  I try to get up super early and get my blogging schedule done so that I can do all my Momma stuff the rest of the day but that doesn’t always happen.  I usually end up doing a bit of both throughout the day.  I’m getting a bit better as I learn when I can do things and how long I actually need to get them done (blog related).  So, hopefully soon everything will have some type of true balance.

7. Name 3 foods you could not live without.

Hard one.  Bread.  Fruits.  Sweets.  I know all bad stuff (well fruit is good, right?) but I’m just being honest. 

8. What has been your funniest moment/memory of mommy life?

When we were living in Hawaii and I was in labor with my Baby Girlie.  We had only moved there maybe 2 months prior and Hubby was driving to the Army Hospital.  He took one wrong turn and we ended up on the side of a mountain.  There was mountain to the left and a straight drop down to ocean water on the right…which was where I was sitting.  I was in full on labor and needless to say the view didn’t help me any.  I ended up redecorating the side of the car a bit with my head out the window and the uh…ocean breeze blowing straight into my face…we laugh at it now but I was NOT laughing then.  

9. What is your favorite holiday?

I LOVE Christmas…mainly because I get to see my Kiddies faces first thing in the morning when they see all their dreams come true.  I also love staying up the night before wrapping and doing my last minute decorating to make sure everything is just right.

10. What is your favorite blog post that you have written so far?

I would have to say the one where I took my son to get his Senior Pictures done.  It was a moment where I could actually step outside of myself and see how far I have come in my life…from a teen mom to a wife and also see that I didn’t totally mess my Kid up in the process.  I actually did okay.  You can read it here.

 

Did you enjoy getting to know me a bit better from Michelle’s point of view?  I think she asked some pretty good questions.  Now it’s time to go by Michelle’s Blog and see what I asked her and how she answered….

 

Also, don’t forget to go by and see the other Blogger’s participating in #AskAwayFriday and see what type of question they asked and answered.  Are you ready?  Are you set? Go!

    oh my goodness!! LOL I just learned so much more about you! Love AAF for that. So amazing that you picked up and moved like that and that story about your labor!! Holy moly!! xo

  • Taylor

    Stopping by from #AskAwayFriday link up. I loved getting to know more about you here! I really admire your bravery for moving your family all the way to Hawaii by yourself, 8 months pregnant no less! What a trooper. I can't imagine how stressful and taxing that must have been. Isn't it amazing looking back at how much we've accomplished? You are awesome, dude! Seriously! By the way, I chuckled at the mental picture you guys hanging over the side of a mountain, lost, and in labor. However, I'm SURE it wasn't funny then!!!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks so much for coming by…yes that was a big test of my personal resolve and self-confidence but we made it and got there in once piece… 😀

      Ummm…my mountain experience…yes that is hilarious NOW…not so much then…HAHA!

    We actually have quite a bit in common. I too moved just 10 days before I gave birth to my daughter — crisis management I tell you.

    I love the Fall too, there is just something about the crisp cool air and getting to break out my favorite pair of jeans.

    It is definitely hard balancing life with blogging and a family and all the other things we have to do in life. I would love to see someone who has it down packed. Do they even exist?

    This was my first Ask Away Friday series — it was so much fun. I'm glad I could connect with you and am following you back on Twitter.

    • MrsTee Post author

      🙂 Crisis Management is putting it lightly…LOL A 15 hour 3 plane travel schedule WHEW! I was done! LOL I'm so glad we could meet and connect…I will definitely stop by your site in a bit 😉

  • Jhanis

    Oh my Lord! traveling with 2 kids and pregnant, I bow down to you! That is something I do not dare doing even going to the mall! LOL and your funniest moment sure is scary! I would have gone ballistic hahahaha Always great learning new things about you Tiff! 🙂

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yeah, that was truly an ummm…adventure to say the least! LOL As for my trip around the mountain…I think my Hubby knew how UPset I was as he washed the car down later that night…LOL (TMI.. LOL)

  • MrsTee Post author

    Thanks…I sure didn't think I could do it but sometimes you just inhale and say God YOU help me do this…and He always does! LOL

    Yes, sweets are my weekness…. natural and artificial… 🙂

    I'll have to stop by yours to comment later today but I did read it and it was great as always 🙂

  • BRITTNEI

    Wow you are a trooper! That's a big move with being that prego with 3 kids! You go girl! I love chocolate myself so don't feel bad. It's always nice getting to know you better and better each week! 🙂

  • Michelle @ The MaMad

    I love your answers! They're perfect :).

    I cannot even come close to imagining what was going through your head when you were stuck on that mountain in labor! haha And I totally get not being able to pick one favorite thing about being a mommy, because I don't think I could pick just one thing either!

    p.s. Between exhaustion, blogging and crafting at the same time, and Eli being craaaazzzyyyy tonight (not like that's unusual 😉 ), my intro for you was short and sweet. I wish I could have gone more into detail and made it be SUPER AWESOME like you did with mine! <3

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks! You're questions made me think a bit but were fun to answer…

      That mountain was a trip! When we had my youngest we were still in Hawaii and the first thing I said was Don't Miss The Turn!!! LOL

      Awww! You're intro was great…thanks a bunch 🙂
