Holy Cow!

Two in one week?  Man, I am on a roll...

Really, I am honored that Kortney at Kortneys Crazy Life awarded me this.  My blog is definitely versatile to say the least.  I am very random if you haven't noticed.  One day I might be talking shop about kids, the next day recipes or about my favorite breakfast sandwich. 

Who knows, that is why you have to read me everyday, right? 

Hopefully, I keep it interesting and entertaining. 

And now for the rules once you’ve been awarded The Versatile Blogger:
1. Thank and link back to the person who nominated you.
2. Answer 10 Questions about yourself.
3. Pass it along to other blogs that you recently discovered and enjoy.
4. Leave your nominations a note telling them about the award.

Here are the answers to the 10 questions:

1. Why did you create this blog?

I have been blogging on other sites for a few years but I had an epiphany this past fall after attending a women's retreat which ultimately resulted in this new blog.  I wanted to create this blog for women to let them know it is ok if we are not perfect.  It is ok if we can't do it all.  It is ok if we have a bad day.  We need to let things go sometimes and just be.  If you go back to my first post a woman at our retreat summed it up nicely.  "Women's lib was not so liberating now was it."  There are so many more responsibilites that women of today have with working in the home, out of the home, keeping up the home, rearing the children...And I know we don't necessarily all do it alone (I know some do) but there are so many expectations, to do lists, places to go, people to see that we sometimes get caught up in all the hoopla and forget about who we are.  We are not superwoman now matter how hard we try.  We will fail somewhere and it is OK!  My whole point though is really to not fail in the areas that truly matter such as being a servent to Christ, being a faithful and abiding wife.  Being a wonderful mother to our children.  Everything else is icing on the cake. 

2. What kind of blogs do you follow?

I am pretty random with what I follow.  I follow tons of mommy blogs of course.  Recipes blogs.  Frugal living blogs. Reading blogs.  Gosh, probably anything and everything in between.

3. What is your favorite clothing brand?

I am a creature of habit when it comes to clothes.  If I find something I like, looks good on me I don't care what the brand is but you can bet I buy a few of the same ones to store away.  And if it on clearance or on sale, even better!

4. What is your favorite brand of makeup?

I am very low maint when it comes to make up.  I typically buy Maybelline.  Used to buy Clinique but it is too expensive for my taste anymore.

5. Indispensable make up?

Does moisturizer count as make up?  I moisturize daily if nothing else.

6. Favorite color?

Emerald Green (my birthstone)

7. Favorite Perfume

Whatever my husband buys me.

8. Favorite Movie

Say Anything w/John Cusak. (I love the 80's.  The movies. The music.  The hair; not so much).

9. What country would you like to visit?

I would love to Italy.

10. Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or blush on only one side of your face?

Mascara definetly.
