How long have you been married?
My husband and I have been married about 2 1/2 years.
How many children do you have? ages?
What is the one thing that if nothing else "sticks" you want your children to learn from you?
Are you a stay at home mom or a work at home mom?I am fortunate enough right now to be a full time stay-at-home and working on becoming a part-time professional photographer at the same time.
Do you have any hobbies?I love Writing...journals, blogs, poetry, short stories. You name it and I write it. Love to read. Nicholas Sparks & Jane Austen are literary idols. When I have time, I love going to movies. I've recently gotten into working out...don't ask why. Temporary insanity, maybe? I adore photography. My absolute favorite thing to do is head to the Bookstore, grab a Starbucks, settle in a corner with my iPod, Laptop and few photography books and read. And read. And read.
What is the best memory you have of your family?One of my favorite memories is of my dad's mother-Maw. Her and my Grandfather lived right around the corner from my Elementary School growing up. She used to meet me every afternoon when school got out at the corner and we would walk to her house. We always had Vanilla Milkshakes and Homemade Peanut Butter Cookies every afternoon. I also remember my mom's mother-Granny-baking up a storm on Holidays. Especially Christmas. She pulled out all of the stops and we had a neverending array of Christmas goodies to eat.
What is your favorite family vacation?We never did the Giant vacations like Disney World and whatnot growing up. My best vacation memories are of going on "adventures." We'd pack a cooler with sandwiches and drinks, and just get in the car and drive. We've been all over the place, and it was always fun to try to guess where we might stop next.
What are some ways you practice frugality?I coupon. Like a mad-woman. I haven't done it much lately because of our current living situation, but when we were living in Florida, I had gotten really good at saving money using coupons. I also cook a lot, if that counts, so we don't eat out very often. My husband and I took the Dave Ramsey Financial Peach Class and we practice the envelope system pretty strictly, which saves us a lot of money.

What is the most rewarding part?My reward comes when I see Little Man do something new. I was able to see every single milestone...crawling, walking, talking...all of the little things that he does, all of the changes, all of the developements, I've been there to witness. And when that sweet little boy kisses me goodnight or wraps his arms around me to give me a hug, or comes running to me when he's sick or scared, that is all of the reward that I need.

How long have you been blogging?I started blogging seriously in August of 2008 right before little man was born. I kept a myspace blog in college back when it was the "cool thing" to do. Like I said, I've always enjoyed writing and that was my outlet. When I discovered the mommy blog world in 2008, I knew that I wanted to be a part of it.
