11 Random Facts about me:
- I really love food a lot...it is usually one of my main topics in conversation, my husband jokes that I plan my dinner before I have even eaten breakfast.
- My favorite season is Fall. I love everything about it, the colors, the weather and PUMPKIN!
- Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love decorating, eating all the delicious foods associated with Christmas, spending time with family and reminding other of the true reason for the season, Jesus' birth! Sometimes I wish it was Christmas all year long.
- My kitchen is always spotless before I go to sleep which leads me to number 5....
- I am sort of a neat freak. At first it drove my husband crazy but he has accepted it :)
- I have an adorable 85 pound blue nose pit bull named Ocean. Last year when my husband and I decided to get a dog we agreed on getting a 20-30 poundish non shedding inside dog....then we saw Ocean and fell in love. My husband has always wanted a pit bull and I am so glad we got him, we love him so much!
- My food cannot touch! Mainly just sauces running and hot/cold items mixing. Sounds weird but it really freaks me out. My family laughs about it and as a joke a few Christmases ago my mom bought me a cafeteria tray which I used a couple of times :)
- It takes me FOREVER to make an online purchase. I'm not sure why, if I'm in my favorite store TARGET I swipe away but, there is something about the freedom of research online that delays the process.
- My favorite colors are Tiffany blue, dark purple and orange.
- I crave Mexican food 24-7! I have always loved Mexican food, now that I am pregnant it has become a staple in my diet.
- Chipped nail polish irritates me! My mom used to do nails and I spent a lot of time (by choice, practically begging) watching her during her appointments. I have the BEST picture of myself painting my nails in my high chair with non-toxic polish. Needless to say my nails are usually in excellent condition.
My Questions from Latesha:
- What's the history behind your blog name? I wanted to come up with a name that summed up who I was and the general feel of my blog. It took me a while but I decided on Simply Inspired Me.
- How long have you been blogging? About 3 months
- Why did you start blogging? I love to write and debated with starting a blog for a while, then one day I just went for it. I LOVE it, it is one of the ways I spend my me time.
- Name 1 item you could not live without. (ANYTHING- beauty product, clothing, food, physical object, etc.) Hmmm, I would have to say my phone. I chose it because it's so multifunctional. Phone, camera, book....the possibilities are endless.
- What is your favorite fairytale? Why? I love Cinderella, partly because I also love shoes :)
- What song do you have on your iPod, phone, Mp3, etc. that you would be embarrassed for others to hear? I wouldn't say it would embarrass me, but I wouldn't want it to start playing on shuffle...there is a small collection of preschool music on my iPod for work and I know the words to every song in that playlist :)
- When was your most recent public embarrassment? I don't have anything good because I cannot think of anything, I have a mild case of prego brain. I hope this counts...I hate being the center of attention and last weekend was my baby shower. The gift opening was rough, I look so angry in some of the pictures not because I am mad but because I was freaking out inside!
- Which was the 1st blog you started following? From Mrs to Mama
- What is your favorite post from your blog? I would have to say Before Baby (in 8 weeks) Bucket List. I got a lot of great ideas and feedback from some wonderful ladies :)
- If you could have dinner with anyone in the world- living or dead- who would it be and why? Without question my Grandma who passed away almost 2 years ago. There is so much I would love to ask her and tell her about my son who will be here in 5 weeks. Most of all I just want to give her a hug, tell her I love her and miss her!!
- What should my next blog topic be? A new recipe you have tried.
I have less than 11, these 9 lovely ladies blog are so worth reading :)
