Q&A follow up post!

Special thanks to all who participated! And without further adieu, here we go!!!

Anne asked: "I would like to know what you guys do for a living?" Well, I am a stay at home mom. I do have a Bachelor's degree in English. Prior to having Lincoln, I worked in Human Resources. Jared works in construction. His company is having a tough year because of the economy so he was actually laid off from October until April...which honestly worked out perfectly because he was able to be home with Lincoln when he was a wee little baby. He actually just got laid off again last week...ugh. He'll probably be going back in September, so we're making the most of it and going to enjoy having a family filled summer :)

Breedwoman asked: "Where do you like to shop?" Okay. I will tell you where I like to shop for myself, not for Lincoln [although I mostly shop for him nowadays ;)]. My absolute favorite store is Target. We seriously go there like once a week. I love American Eagle for clothes, and Kohls is also one of my favorites.
"Are you a coupon cutter?" I am absolutely a coupon cutter. Jared and I go through the coupons every Sunday together...and I search online as well. Also, if I'm shopping online, I almost ALWAYS have a coupon code :)
"How are you able to be a SAHM at this day in age?" I honestly able to be a SAHM because of our ridiculously low mortgage. If I told you what our mortgage was, your jaw would drop, seriously. Yes, we did build our own house, but we did most of it ourselves. We have a lot of family/friends that work in different industries and they were able to save us a TON of money. I know how lucky I am, and I am very very thankful.

Liz asked: "What is your greatest achievement in life (besides your precious son)?" Man, now that is a hard one, because Lincoln would absolutely be my first answer! I would have to say [finally] getting my college degree. It took me seven [very long] years, but I do have my pretty degree framed on my office wall :)
"What is your biggest fear?" Hands down, something, anything happening to Lincoln. I just want to protect him from absolutely everything possible. I know there will be times when he does get hurt, and it will hurt me so much more than it will hurt him. I just want him safe. Always.

Mandy asked: "What is your favorite thing to do when you have "me" time?" Well, as I know Mandy knows because she has a precious son of her own, "me" time comes far and few between ;) But, when I do get some time, I love to curl up with a book and a cup of coffee. That is h.e.a.v.e.n.!

Jenny asked: "What is your favorite thing about being a Mom?" Wow. Do I have to pick just one?! Being a Mom is seriously the best thing I have ever done with my life. I would have to say the "mother/son" connection I have with Lincoln. We really do have a special bond. It's the way he looks at me. He gives no one else that look. It really is special :)

Renata Bowers asked: "How did you get started blogging? I am new to it myself, and you have a lovely, readable style!" First of all, thank you so much for the compliment! About two years ago I joined a "Mommy" message board. Almost all of the members had a blog, so I wanted to be one of the "cool kids" too ;) I am really glad I got into it though because I love love love blogging! I have always loved to write, and this allows me to, well, do just that!

Aislinn asked: "If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go, and why?" Honestly, I really have no desire to travel overseas. I have been to Jamaica and Mexico, but I'm pretty much set on just traveling within the states, or Canada...I LOVED Niagara Falls. But, right now if I could travel anywhere, it would be to Disney World, haha. No joke at all. I haven't been in ten years and love that place! I'm a big kid at heart ;)
"Do you ever want to meet any of your fellow bloggers?" If I ever had the opportunity, absolutely. I love meeting new people.

And there you have it! Thanks to all who played along, I had fun :)
On another note, I have some awesome giveaways that are in the works, so stay posted for that! And, because I am getting involved in product reviews/giveaways, I would like to know, "what products are you interested in seeing?" Let me know!


  1. Thanks for sharing all of that about you! You are so lucky to have people help you build your house. We just finished our upstairs finally and it cost SO much $$$ it was ridiculous.

  2. I love the same stores as you! :)
