For this week’s #AskAwayFriday I am swapping with MISS DRE from ...So She Writes By Miss Dre.
MISS DRE is a self described…
“Mother. Wife. Diva. Female Hustler.”
Trust me, once you visit her Blog you’ll see that her description is on point! MISS DRE is a dedicated mother, wife and definitely a Diva with make-up skills I envy. She knows how to handle her business and not let the worries of business handle her. Be sure when you finish checking out my answers to MISS DRE’s questions that you head over to …So She Writes and see what this woman is all about!
♥If you could give your beginner blogger self a bit of advice, what would it be?
I actually still see myself as my ‘beginner blogger self’ since I’ve only been blogging 5 months (today actually). Still, the advice I would give any beginner blogger is to be yourself at all times in all ways. From your site design to the way you word your writing. Blogging is from the core about sharing parts of yourself with others. Whether your motivation is to create friends, readers or even income the base design is to draw people in with who you are. How can you do that successfully if the person you present isn’t your true self?
♥You and your husband are going almost ten years strong and counting! I love it! What would you say is the “glue” that keeps you guys together?
I know it may sound cheesy or even cliche but Love. Without our love there are many situations and circumstances that I think we both would have simply walked away from. There are times in even the best person’s life where you feel like you have simply reached your limit. It’s then when love can become that extension of strength, endurance and even patience that you may not extend to someone you didn’t truly care about.
♥It’s so cool that you’re in NC, too! If you could pick one spot here in NC to show me a good time, where would it be and why?
I didn’t even realize you were in NC! That’s great! Honestly though, I live in a sort of bubble. I don’t venture that far beyond my immediate surroundings and when I do they are mostly centered around Kiddie entertainment and activities. Hmmm. I know we would have a bit of coffee (or a non coffee beverage if you prefer) at Starbucks…they are like my most favorite spot ever! LOL I would probably take you on base to take advantage of some Tax Free shopping and then over to the local mall. Can you tell I’m a woman who loves to shop (even if it is through the windows)? I would end our day at a great restaurant because don’t all great days end with great food?!?!? 🙂
♥If your life had a soundtrack, what would be the first three songs on the list and why? I think I always ask this question LOL.
Wow! This is a tough one considering Hubby and I are both major music lovers and our combined playlist our enormous! So, to make it a bit easier and since you asked for 3 I’ll break them down the same way I break down my life….
Love On Top – Beyonce
Just Fine – Mary J. Blige
Gummy Bear Song – I Don’t Know Who Did This But My Kiddies LOVE It! 😀
♥What was your most memorable birthday like?
I would have to say my 32nd in 2010. It was the year my Hubby returned from his deployment and I got to spend 2 weeks alone with him in Hawaii before we moved back for our station there. I was almost 6 months preggers and we spent most of the time looking for a house BUT on my birthday we went out to dinner, walked the beach and were just together as US. I had missed him to the point where it was painful and getting off that plain and seeing him there waiting for me was more joy than I have had outside of the birth of my Kiddies.
♥Where is the most beautiful place you’ve ever been?
Hawaii. We were stationed there for 3 years and we lived there for 2. My 2 youngest Kiddies were born there and it is a beautiful island with beautiful people. I would love to live there again if given the opportunity.
♥Do you have any resolutions or goals for the new year? If so, tell me about a couple of them 🙂
I haven’t actually made any resolutions for a few years. They were always so unattainable and made in the moment. So, this year I came upon a post by a fellow Blogger, Michelle, over at DivasWithAPurpose which outlined the idea of selecting a word for the year and focusing on achieving that word’s purpose in your life. I outline my word and the details HERE.
♥I see we both have lots in common, even the fact that we were both assistants in a College Admissions Office. Tell me one thing about yourself that you’ve never shared on your blog.
You were?!?!? That is so cool!!! Now, something I haven’t already shared….hmm. The only thing I can think of is that before I found out that I was pregnant with my oldest, I had been accepted and was planning on attending college at an Historically Black College/University. It was going to be my big chance to move away from and out from under what I considered to be my Grandmother’s thumb.
Once I found out I was pregnant, needless to say those plans came to an end. Now my son is planning on attend an HBCU and I feel as if despite my being unable to go through with my own plans my life has come full circle and to be able to see him do it is such a proud Momma moment and blessing it makes everything worth it.
♥I love your 8:28 Blessings segment on your blog. How did you come up with the concept?
Thank You So Much! It came to me during a time of meditation and just reflective thought. I wanted a way to share my love for the text Romans 8:28 as well as a way to offer my readers a place to share their own personal blessing experiences.
Since starting the #828Blessings Social Share I have gone through some ups and downs, revision and rethinks and even a few lapses (Holiday season took over a bit) but I still have a place for it in my heart and until I feel otherwise I plan on trying to keep it going. You can read the entire story of how #828Blessings came about HERE.
♥If you could get one thing for Christmas, and money was no object whatsoever, what would it be?
I’ve received so many of my Christmas wishes this year including my iPad Air, 2 pairs of UGG boots, some really great outfits and most recently a great Christmas Blessing from ZaggDaily of a Zagg Folio Keyboard for my iPad Air! I’m really a bit overwhelmed. The only things that were left on my list are some Sperry TopSider shoes and a Pottery Barn CableKnit Sweater Blanket. Still…without those things my Christmas has been beyond blessed.
On top of my Hubby gifting me with the things I wanted the most this year, my Kiddies are receiving their greatest wishes and my biggest wish of all will be granted: seeing their smiling faces on Christmas Day and having our Lazy Christmas Day at home.
Now it’s time for you to go over to and see what MISS DRE
