Blogger Love

 © | Dreamstime.com

When I started blogging a little over a year ago, I was doing it as a creative outlet.  Something for me.  I was on maternity leave, and while I enjoyed being home with my little one, I wanted to feel back to the old me again (which lets face it, do we ever go back to our old selves once we have kids?).  I had always loved writing, so I thought a blog would be a great idea to get myself back into the writing thing.  One year later I got more than I bargained for. I've gotten to know other blogs and the writers behind them. Seeing how people set up there blogs, and the different tones that go with each, I love it!!  Just when I think I can't love the whole blogging thing anymore, Susie at the Esthetic Goddess Reviews nominates my blog for a Liebster Award!! (Check out her blog peeps.....she will give you the beauty facts straight, and her posts are always fun to read!).  I was blushing hardcore when I was nominated.  You can read about it HERE.  As if that wasn't already ice cream  enough, Shauna over at Momma Candy re-nominated my blog for the  award (what a fucking sweetheart , and the cherry on top!). Well she told me that she didn't expect me to go through the nomination process (because that just happened like three weeks ago.), she asked that I answer her questions that she posted for her nominees.

I'm totally fucking down,  for a number of reasons.

1. Shauna is awesome (that's why I nominated her in the first place!!)

2.  It gives me something to write about.

3. I love sharing the blogger love.

So here are the  questions asked by the fabulous Shauna. Followed by my answers.

1. What makes you laugh?

There is so much that makes me laugh.  My sister always says I make her feel like a comedian because I laugh at everything she says.

2. Are you passive or aggressive? Or passive aggressive?

I'm probably more aggressive than passive. I can let little things go, but I'm not afraid to speak my mind when need be.

3. Tell me how much you love TV. Oh, it has to be a question? What do you love on TV right now?

Supernatural, The Middle, Modern Family, and of course The Walking Dead (I've been watching reruns on Netflix)

4. What's your favorite snack food? Salty or sweet?

It use to be salty, but as I've grown to the ripe old age of 31, I've developed quite the sweet tooth! Especially for dark chocolate.

5. What quality do you detest about people on Facebook? Dish!

I actually gave up Facebook because of all the negativity. You can read about it HERE.  I was getting tired of all the "whoa is me" status updates.  I get everybody has bad days, but the constant complaining, whining, about such mundane shit was getting a little outta hand. I needed a "Facebook Cleanse" I guess! Every once in awhile, I will check it out again to see if I miss it.

6. What's your favorite candy?

Sour kids.

7. How do you indulge? How do you spoil yourself?

Spa treatments!! When I quit smoking, that was my pay off.  One spa treatment a month.  I love it all...facials, massages, mani, pedi's, salt glow treatments.....its such a relaxing way to enjoy some "me" time.

8. What would someone have to do for you to unfriend/unfollow them on any social media platform?

When I did have Facebook, the only reason I unfriended people if I saw any type of post making fun of people. I don't mean in a joking way. 
9. What's your favorite line from a movie?  

"I'm in a glass case of emotion"
-Ron Burgandy, Anchorman

10. What was the last movie you saw? Did you like it?

I just watched "The Heat" on Netflix. (I have a fucking Netflix problem by the way) It was pretty funny....I love Melissa McCarthy.  

11. What's your favorite holiday and why?

Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the whole "family, friends, lights, food, decorations, hustle and bustle, being together" aspect of it all.

Thanks again Shauna for the blogger love! Check her out over at Momma Candy. She writes with a wide open heart, and such honesty. You will love her and her blogs!

Also feel free to answer some of the questions yourself, or comment with your blog....I love getting to know new people!!

  1. Thanks for the shout out, gurl and that is so cool that you got nominated again!! Facebook is phony and should be called ValidationBook. I begrudgingly opened an account last year. The hubs and I were married in a teeny tiny service in our home (13 peeps. It was so awesome!) so it was nice that I could post pics for those who wanted to be there. Other then that I never use it! I am way to private and will not be taking pics of my food or announcing that I just workout.

    1. No problem Susie....I love your blog!! Yeah I have a love/hate relationship with facebook. I might go back....I might not!!

  2. I love facebook because it keeps me connected with friends and I'm a horrible friend IRL because that's just what happens when you have kids and a husband and a job. So facebook lets me still be in contact with people without having to commit. Is that shitty? And it's totally a place for woah is me. I think it might be proof of Munchausen for some moms. Seriously. It's a strange social experiment. Kudos to you for purging. It can get pretty toxic.

    Perfect movie line quote! PERFECT.

    And your favorite is Sour Patch Kids??? We are clearly the same person.

    Thanks for all the awesome things you said about me. You rock!

    1. Thanks again for the re-nomination!!

      Yeah, I have a love/hate relationship with facebook. I noticed I was complaining about it....and I hate complainers.....so I decided to get rid of it to see how it goes! So far, not too bad. But I totally hear ya on the being in contact with people. I may go back, I may not, I just don't know! lol!!

      Sour kids....just another thing we have in common!
