I think it’s important for people to get to know the person behind the blog. So, I’m going to answer some questions so that you can get to know a little more about me. I love doing these and I hope you enjoy reading them. (See my Getting to Know the Woman Behind the Blog post for more questions.) Ready? Here we go!
1. Out of the 24 hours in a day, what is your favorite time on the clock and why?
My favorite time on the clock. Hmm…. That’s a tough question. I would have to say my absolute favorite time on the clock is 5:00 a.m. That’s the time of the day that my alarm clock goes off each morning. If I hear that alarm, I know that I’ve made it to see another day!
2. What is your favorite magazine?
My favorite magazine is O! Magazine. (I’m so sad that the print edition is ending.) I absolutely love all things Oprah Winfrey! Her magazine is always filled with advice, information, and resources related to self-empowerment. It also has beauty and fashion tips and health and finance information. It’s just a great magazine overall.
3. What is your favorite social media platform?
Really? I have to choose just one? I spend way too much time on them all, so it’s difficult to choose. I love that I can connect with my high school and college friends on Facebook. But, I absolutely love getting retweeted or receiving comments from celebrities on Twitter! I’m learning to love Instagram and I’m semi-addicted to TikTok.
4. What’s your best memory of high school?
My best memory of high school (dang, I’ve got to think back 20+ years) would be UCA Cheerleading Camp 1996. I tried out for UCA All-Star Cheerleader, along with hundreds of other awesome cheerleaders, and I made it! I was so excited. I’ll never forget the feeling of accomplishment that I felt that day! The camp was at Auburn University, which is now my Alma Mater. So, that makes the memory that much more special!
5. What’s your go-to website for online shopping?
Amazon. No doubt. I can find everything that I need there! I love Amazon!!
6. A blogger who inspires you?
I love Dayna Bolden’s blog! Dayna is beautiful, creative, and confident. What I love about Dayna’s blog is that you can find a little bit of everything there! Parenting, lifestyle, fashion, travel, fitness, beauty, you name it!
7. Who is your celebrity crush?
Idris Elba! My husband knows that he’s in big trouble if I EVER get a chance to meet Idris! (Just kidding. Not really…) I mean, just look at him! Don’t you love him, too???
8. What’s a book you’d recommend to read?
Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks. Hey, I’m a sucker for a love story! If you’re not up for reading romance, then my next suggestion is Boundaries. I read Boundaries a few months ago and just picked it up again because there are so many great gems in the book.
9. A favorite recipe you love to make?
I don’t know if I have a favorite recipe. I like trying different things. My kids would probably say pasta. I’m always experimenting with different pasta dishes.
10. Your favorite app on your phone?
The Notes app is my new favorite. I’ve recently discovered how convenient it is to jot down notes, reminders, recipes, writing ideas, etc. in my Notes app. I love having a notebook handy when I need to remember something!
11. You somehow ended up with a husband-free, kid-free evening. How do you spend it?
I’d probably spend that evening with my notebook and pen writing something for my blog. Or, maybe I’d spend it reading a book. I’ve got some new books that I haven’t started reading yet.
12. The restaurant you always crave?
Any Mexican restaurant! I could eat Mexican every day of the week! Love it!!
I have so much fun answering these questions! If there’s something else that you want to know about me, leave a question in comments and it might end up on my next “Getting to Know Me” post!
Great post. It was great to learn about you. I like Mexican food and need to get another copy of boundaries!
I want to get some of the other Boundaries books! I’ve heard they are all great!
