Texas Women Bloggers: Self-Interview Link Party

I recently joined up with Texas Women Bloggers...all you blogger friends go check it out...and today they are hosting a fun self-interview link party! So here we go....

1. What part of the state do you call home?
    I currently live in north Ft. Worth! I've been in the metroplex since graduating college in 2005!       
    Previously I lived in Waco and loved it there as well!!

2. How long have you been blogging?

    I started this blog in 2007, right before I had my first son! I can't believe I've documented six      
   years of our life on this little blog!

3. Why did you start blogging?

    With a baby on the way, and both sets of our parents scattered all around, some out of  
    state, I wanted a way that our family could "stay in touch" with us and see all those special 
    baby moments and milestones that happen everyday! I wanted them to feel like they weren't 
    missing out on the times they couldn't be with us! 

4. What do you hope to get out of the Texas Women Bloggers community?
    I love to find/read other mom blogs...well any blog in general, but especially mom bloggers!  
   And I  would love to meet some Texas bloggers!!

5. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

    In five years, I see myself with a ten year old and a seven year old (gasp)! I see weeknight 
    practices, crazy schedules, weekends spent at tournaments.  Hopefully just living life 
   and being happy!
6. If you could choose an actress to play you in your life, who would you choose and  
    Jennifer Garner! She is beautiful, a mom, funny, married to Ben Affleck, and she is a 
    fellow Texan!
7. Name 5 things on your Bucket List that you hope you’ll check off before you die?

    (1) I dream of going to Chicago!
    (2) Traveling abroad with my boys....preferably London or Spain. 
    (3) Ride in a hot air balloon.
    (4) Going to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter...yes I am a bit of a fan!
    (5) Attend an Olympic Sporting Event!

8. If you could be known for one thing, what would it be and why?

    Honestly, just being the best mom I can be! If my boys, in 20 years or so, can look back and 
    say thank you or anything that looks like gratitude, then I've done my job! Let's be real....they 
    are boys though! 

9. Describe one “wow” moment in your life.

    My wedding day! Definitely a "wow" moment... watching your life about to change forever and 
    knowing you're going to get to spend every day thereafter with your main man!

10. If you could “be” anything (no consequences, no fear), what would you “be”?

     Hands down I would be a professional party planner....I love me a good party! Hello Tori 
     Spelling! I'd love to her her BFF, ha!

There it in 10 questions!! Hope you enjoyed reading!

Totally cool that you chose Jennifer Garner. I'm loving that, so far, I've seen everyone pick a different actress! :)

Tamara said...

Waco in da house! Haha. I live about 30 minutes south of Waco, but love this area.

I initially started to help document friends/family about our growing family when I was pregnant with my daughter 2 years ago. It's crazy now to look back at some of those first posts because it's like "Wow. Did she really fart on me only a year ago? Time sure does fly!"

Hot air balloon - YES! I'm sad I didn't put that on my list now. Haha.

Also, I'm a total Potterhead too. I even made my husband buy the Harry Potter Legos game for Xbox a couple years ago.
