This week I am exchanging questions with my fellow Host, Stacey from This Momma’s Ramblings. I am excited to answer her questions and get to know her a bit more at the same time. It is definitely a welcomed break from a bit of a stressful week.
Let’s see what Stacey has to ask me… 🙂
1. What is your fondest dream that you have yet to accomplish?
Honestly my dreams have changed so much as I’ve gotten older. As a teen I wanted to be Ms. Corporate Businesswoman – no kids, corner office and all work and goals. In College I was just trying to be a Mom and finish my education that corner office seemed less important than a steady check. Now as a SAHM, I am happy and satisfied with a life I never thought I wanted.
My dreams now include raising my Kiddies to be good people and adults, being a good Wife and Friend and most recently creating a successful Blog and Brand. I think I am making steps towards everything daily and none of them are the kinds of dreams you can label as ‘accomplished’ but simply a work in progress. My Blog dream is my most selfish one. I really want this to be a good thing. For me, for those who read and view it and hopefully for my family when I get to a place where it can be a part of my income.
2. I am finding that as I get older,
I can tolerate rudeness in people less and less.
What is one of your biggest pet peeves?
Haha! I am so with you! I don’t know if it is age or being a Momma but my nerves are wearing thin with a lot of things that I normally probably wouldn’t notice. I think my pet peeve would be parents who don’t control their kids.
The other day this kid basically walked over my Kiddie to get to something and do you think their parent said a word to me (like excuse my kid) or even to the kid (say excuse me)? Nope. Nothing. Not one word. Just stood there. I actually said something (loud enough for Mom to hear me) Oooh don’t you think you should say excuse me you almost knocked her over. Guess what? The kid said it and sorry. It only takes a minute to teach a lesson but the ones who just say nothing. Work my nerves. I’ve been saying that a lot more too…LOL
3. If you could go back in time and change one thing about your life,
Good or bad,
What would you change and why?
Absolutely nothing. Is that bad? I think both the good and the bad have made me who I am today. I am happy with that person and to change any of those things (even the ones I saw as bad) would inevitably change my present self.
The easiest way I can explain it is with this scripture:
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been calledaccording to his purpose.”
4. If you could go back in time and interview any historical figure, who would you choose and why?
Hmmm. Interesting question Stacey! I think I would love to interview Coretta Scott King. I have always admired her strength as a wife and mother and have watched a few movies and documentaries on her life. I feel her story has so much more to it and I am sure she could impart a depth of wisdom I would value forever.
5. What is something that blogging has taught you about yourself?
If I really want to do something. I will find a way. When I first started Blogging the only thing I knew about HTML was when I used to try and write the codes to create the rainbow spirals on the very first computers – yes the little tan monitors with the black screen and green text (I am so old! LOL) Yet with every bump I hit I learned. I asked questions, I researched, I stayed up late and I figured it out. Why? Because I wanted to succeed and be what I had in my mind. I am still learning, still asking, still researching and unfortunately still pulling all nighters but I am making progress and that is what matters.
6. I know that you are as big of a music lover as I am.
What are your top 5 songs that are rockin’ your playlist?
OOOH! Yes! Music is my comfort, motivation and escape. Here’s my Top 5 (as of tonight):
7. With Mother’s day just around the corner,
What do you hope your Mother’s day will look like?
What would you like to get?
Peace and relaxation. I stated above that this week has been kinda crazy (Vlog post coming this weekend…LOL) and I really just need to find my Hubby’s arms and take a breath. We may go out for dinner or something but other than that I don’t really want anything. Hubby has blessed me so much this year (iPad, MacBook, DSLR, Light Kit…) I need for nothing 🙂 I am truly blessed and I would love to simply have a day to enjoy my family.
8. What dessert will you go for above any else?
Chocolate Cake. Homemade. Yellow Cake. Chocolate Icing. 😉
9. Does your hubby read your blog? Is he supportive of it?
He doesn’t read it at all unless I say “Hey look at this for me” but as I stated above he is supportive in every way. He makes sure I have any and everything I need to be successful at what I am trying to do.
10. I hope to someday make it to North Carolina…my brother in law lives there. What is your area like?
I live in a really suburban area, not rural at all. I love that. I get the slowness of the country with the convenience of the city. I love my city and my neighborhood.
Stacey had some really cool questions and I had fun answering each one of them. Don’t forget to head over to Stacey’s and check out her answers to my questions including why she rather be under than over dressed.
