#AskAwayFriday W/ Wendy From EffieGirl

My question for this week’s #AskAwayFriday were from the awesome Wendy at EffieGirl.  Wendy is a self-described ‘everyday girl’ and she is definitely a cool and down to earth person and I love her family values and sense of self-confidence.  They practically jump out from her pages. So once you’re done seeing what great questions Wendy has for me be sure to head over and check out her piece of the Bloggersphere at EffieGirl.

AskAwayEffieAnswers

1- Congrats on your SITS ‘shout-out’! How did you come
about wanting SITS as a part of your blogging?
Thank You! I had such a wonderful SITSGirls Featured Blogger Day and I am so grateful to everyone who helped it be just that and then some.
I’ve often said how much research I did prior to starting my Blog.  SITSGirls was a result of that research and I am so glad that I found them.
I actually came upon them through a twitter party of some sort and then through the SITSGirls Facebook Page.  It was there that I first interacted with Tiffany Romero who ‘liked’ and commented on a response I had give to one of their prompt posts asking for you to describe yourself in one sentence.  I said:
“I’ll make you laugh and even wonder but I’ll never bore you!”
Tiffany said it was a great line and one that she would love to use herself.  I was so happy and amazed that the founder of something that was so awesome as SITSGirls took the time to read and comment on something I wrote.
It was not that long after that I started my Blog and I quickly learned that having a good foundation and Community of Bloggers around you is a major key to your success.  It’s All About Support and The SITSGirls definitely offers that in every way a Blogger could need from Tips, How To’s, Money Earning Techniques…the list can go on and so does their ability to help make you feel that you’re not alone.
2- I did NOT realize you have 6 kids! We have that craziness in common 🙂
How do you prioritize your blogging
and so many link-ups and juggling all the kids?
Yes!  My little Team 🙂  I’m not even sure I can say that I do prioritize everything as best as I could but I am certainly trying my best.  I do a lot of calendar alerts and note taking to make sure I remember everything I need to.  Trust me it can get difficult BUT my handy iPhone/iPad alerts and reminders definitely helps me a lot.
3- What has been the best experience in your blog,
thus far, in this New 2014? (Aside from SITS)
Ok, not counting my SITS Featured Blogger Day my best experience has definitely been gaining approval to be an Affiliate for Starbucks!  I am by any definition a Coffee addict and Starbucks is my biggest source…so when I received that e-mail saying I was approved.  My Day Was Made!
See that pretty Starbucks Ad over there?  I love it and Thank God for my favor daily.
4- Do your children have birthdays close to each other,
that you would combine parties?
Yes!  I have 1 in January, 1 in February, 1 in May, 1 in September and 2 in November (only 2 days apart).  Despite having back-to-back Birthdays we choose to give each child their own individual celebrations.
They are all allowed to pick their own themes which has ranged from Dora, Princess Party, Rockstar, Batman and Marvel Avengers.In our family we do Birthdays BIG and I love seeing each of their faces when their little dreams come true… 🙂
5- Do you make a ‘date-night’ with the hubster, to keep sane?
Definitely.  There are days where we simply ‘need’ to have a bit of Couple and Adult time and we try to make time for that at least twice a month.  It is usually no more than dinner and a movie but even that is enough to help us both recharge.
6- I see you like Starbucks, which has been your favorite of all favorite
drinks with all you’ve tested?
Like?  Do I?  LMBO…a bit of an understatement 😀  I made Gold Card status in less than 2 months so that can be a hint to my level of obsession.

I have been able to try so many different flavors and combinations by asking folks for their Faves through my Instagram and my “Try of the Day” features.  It’s truly a lot of fun to taste them and then give my reactions. I’ve had mostly great ones with a few not so great and either way it’s a blast!
So I would have to say that my favorite is a tie between the Pumpkin Spice Latte and the Apple Caramel Spice (which actually isn’t even coffee-it’s spiced hot apple juice YUM!)

7- Which link-up seems to be your most fun-favorite?
Oh…this is a question I simply Can’t Answer!  I enjoy each Blog Hop & LinkUp in it’s own unique way. Whether it be for the amount of Social Media connections it offers, the community it creates or simply the support it allows me to show a fellow Blogger.  I Love Them ALL!
8- Do you have a summer vacation planned?  If so, where to?
Oooh!  I am so excited because we are planning our very FIRST Family Trip to Disney and I think I may be more happy about it than my Kiddies…maybe!
We wanted to wait until each of them was old enough to enjoy and remember the experience.  By the summer the kiddies will be 20, 17, 16, 7, 5 and 3 we know that they will be able to count it as a family memory.
Let’s just say I CAN’T WAIT! 😀
9- I’m guessing you might drive a mini-van (ha, ha), what would be your dream car?
Nope!  I am so ANTI mini-van I actually cried when Hubby came home with a Chrysler Pacifica because even though it is technically a crossover to me it just looked like a mini-van.  Needless to say that car didn’t last long and I went back to my favorite form of transportation….My Trucks!  Prior to the Chrysler I had a Jeep Cherokee and now I have my baby a QX56 Infiniti but I would love to have the newer edition from 2010 which includes a push button activated rear row and trunk as well as a touch screen navigation center.

10- K S C,  Using those three letters, use each one as a single word to describe yourself.

Wow.  What a great question!
