On To The Questions!
1. What is your favorite topic to write about on your blog?
My Life. The good, the bad, the crazy and the ME! I love writing from my day to day experiences. It’s always fun to have a review, bit of fashion or sponsored post here and there still I always want my blog to be a place where I can share my thoughts.
2. I see you are a girl scouts leader, what is your favorite girl scouts cookie?
Well unfortunately I won’t be leading this year
. Still I am always a Girl Scout (and so are my Girls
) and we will ALWAYS be Girl Scout Cookie Fans! My favorite cookie is definitely the Peanut Butter Pattie…I can seriously eat a box on my own…LOL My Kiddies love the Thanks-A-Lots (each cookie has a different name in different regions
) these are shortbread cookies coated in chocolate on the bottom.
3. You were raised by your grandmother and she sounds like an amazing woman, what is your favorite thing about her and what is the most memorable moment you remember when you lived with her?
Yes! She was and is amazing. Her spunk! My Grandmother is barely 5 feet tall (she misses it by an inch) but she will protect and defend her family like the giant she feels she is inside.
My most memorable moment with her was when I was in elementary school and this click of girls decided that I wasn’t their favorite person. They started to pick at me for no real reason and even though I tried to just ignore it my Grandmother worked at the school and She. Saw. All. One day she walked up to them and told them if they didn’t like me that was fine but they Were NOT going to torture me because of it. She then told them if any of them had an issue with that to send their parents her way. Well one of them did!
This woman came to school the next day looking for my Grandmother. My school wasn’t in the great part of town and this woman looked like she could handle herself. Well after she sent someone to get my Grandmother from inside I figured it was time to eat crow. Nope. Not my Grandmother. She walked her 4 feet 11 inches right up to this woman who had to be at least 5’9″ and told her she was the person she was looking for. She proceeded to tell her that her daughter was being a bully and it needed to stop. She asked her if she had a problem with that or her telling her so that she could let her know and they could figure something out. I’m not sure what else was said but by the end of that school year my Grandmother was not only babysitting that same girl but her mother was seeking advice from her and calling her Miss.
4. What type of clothing or fashion accessories are you looking forward to wearing when the weather becomes cooler?
Oooh! This is so funny because I just started my Fall Fever Pinterest Board. I can’t wait to pull out my boots, skinny jeans, sweaters, hoodies and scarfs!
Follow MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter’s board Fall Fever on Pinterest.
5. Some weeks I’m more organized than other weeks when it comes to my blogging schedule and sticking to it.
What is your blogging and vlogging process like, do you often already have posts ready to go?
I try my best to stay really organized especially since I Host and CoHost
a few LinkUps and Hops so keeping up with those can be a bit hectic. Still there are
weeks when things can just get away from me. I may Vlog
or Blog once instead of twice a week. Usually when I know I have a crazy week of family things coming up I try to prepare. I’ll tape 3-4 Vlogs ahead of time and do the same with posts. This way should time run away from me I have a bit of a cushion to fall back on. It helps a lot.
6. Your family trip to Disney looks like such a great time! We still have not gone there as a family.
Is there anything you would do differently for next trip?
It was SO much fun! I gave you guys a day to day Disney recap
but there was so much more that I never even mentioned. Definitely a vacation to remember!
I would definitely plan things out a bit more ahead of time. I did a lot of research before we left for Disney but we still felt like we were flying blind the first few days we were there. So just trying to be a bit more informed and organized wherever we go will definitely be on my priority list.
7. Where would you like to go for your next big family trip?
We actually want to go back to Disney but that will probably not happen for the next few year. Before then we would like to go Great Wolf Lodge and Medieval Times. They both are on our Family Places To See lists 😀
We actually went to Great Wolf Lodge during my Hubby’s leave during Deployment and the Kiddies loved it. My son wasn’t born yet though and we want to go back again so that they can all experience it and make more lasting memories. It is really family friendly and a great place to go all year round for watermark fun and adventures.
Medieval Times is somewhere I went as a teen and I really loved the experience and want to share that with my Kiddies.
8. You’re learning more about photography,
what is your favorite type of photo to capture?
The candid moments. The ones where you’re not posed, ready or even thinking about the camera at all. I love capturing my family and Kiddies in the midst of a laugh, giggle or hug. Those are the memories I want to keep forever and my camera makes that possible.
9. What are two things in your life right now
that you wish you had more time to do?
Blog and Travel.
I blog when I can but it is always in spurts. Either 4 hours straight while Hubby is out with the Kiddies or in 10 – 15 minute increments in between keeping up with the Kiddies, housework and family. I’d real like to have something like office hours where I have a dedicated amount of time each day and week just for my Blog.
Hubby and I are drooling over passports and exotic destinations. I am waiting for my Kiddies to get old enough where I don’t feel like a wreck in leaving them and especially in going more than 2 hours away from them. I am so excited to explore and have a few adventures that are just for Hubby and I.
10. For me, I still feel like I have so much to learn
when it comes to social media.
Which one is your favorite social media network to engage with others and why?
TWITTER! I love me some Twitter! I can start a conversation, meet a new friend or promote a new post all in 140 characters or less and I love every keystroke! LOL
I have fun with all of my Social Media but Twitter is definitely my first love. I started research on being a Blogger through Twitter, I made my first connections there and I have met some of the most amazing people all through those mini chats we have one tweet at a time. It’s awesome!
Bernadyn gave me some really fun and thoughtful questions and I had a blast meeting and getting to know my new Buddy this week! Don’t forget to head over and check out her answers to my questions at B Is For…
