Do You Want to Know?


So, do you want to know what annoys me?  Like super, duper annoys me?  When Charlie and I are in bed, having a serious conversation (what did you think we were doing? pervs!), and he gets really quiet.  And I'm touched,  thinking he's really contemplating what I'm saying. And then I look over and he's asleep.  Like completely, totally, open-mouthed, drooling asleep. Who does that?!  I'm pouring my heart out and he's snoring.

OK, so he's not drooling in this pic... BUT I'm still mad!

Sigh, whatever.

But anyway, do you know what doesn't annoy me?  Friends. Like Tabby, for example.  We've actually known each other for a very long time, went to the same schools, and I'm glad that I've been able to reconnect with her via Facebook and her awesome blog. She's a beautiful woman, a wife, a mom, and a freakin' awesome party planner.  I thought it'd be kind of cool to introduce you guys to her by asking her some questions... check it out!





1) What is your favorite thing about blogging?

My favorite thing about blogging is the opportunity to connect with amazing people.  Through my blog, I've reconnected with friends (like yourself) and grown to truly care about people I've never physically met.  I'm always amazed at the irony of it all.  Long distance relationships rarely work yet blog distance relationships seem to thrive... Interesting, right?  I love how I can be totally honest with myself and, whether I need it or not, someone will tell me I'm not alone.  Laundry-phobes, can I get an amen?!

2) Where do you get inspiration for your posts?

My inspiration comes from my family.  One reason I started blogging is to ensure I had an accurate account of our holidays, our crafts, our life and everything in between... My biggest fans and critics are under my roof, lol.  On one hand, my husband tries to ACT like he doesn't understand when I am singing to my hot glue gun for the *insert something fabulous* it helped me create. On the other hand, he asks me to design jerseys for his football team because, "that glue gun can help [me] do anything!"  Then there's Munchface... O, Munchface.  I see my shortcomings when she enters the room.  Her imagination and personality leave me speechless.  Because of these two (who can work my nerves like no other, lol), I strive to be a better me everyday.  My blog is just our living love story of our bumps, bruises, good times, love letters and inside jokes...  




3) What is your favorite thing about Fall?

I love the weather.  Maybe I'm the only one who has a love-hate relationship with summer but... By the time October arrives, I am sick of the 3 B's of summer - BOOBS, BUTT and BELLY - hanging out. *Eyes closed, hands up*  I never have been a fan of the barely-there summer fashions and fall weather is a breath of fresh air for me.  Layered prints/fabric?  Classic jean jackets? Sweaters? Leggings? BOOTS?!  Shoooot, all I need is my mini-me, a pumpkin spiced latte, a pumpkin patch and my life is complete!




4) Share 1 of your favorite posts and why is it your favorite?

This one's kind of bittersweet for me. My favorite post is the one I used to announce the exciting news of my God baby, Chandler: http://shipwreckedonfabulousisland.blogspot.com/2012/03/big-news-tiny-blessing.html.  *Exhales deeply to fight the tears* On August 20, we arrived for her full-term induction and the doctors could not find her heartbeat.  We were informed that my precious God baby didn't make it.  She was perfect and beautiful and just-so-happened to be born... Still.  Before you asked this question, I hadn't gone back to read any of the posts about her (her nursery or her beautiful baby shower) and she was the first thought that popped in my head for a response... I searched for the link and when I read it, I could FEEL my excitement for her.  Although she isn't here, I realize that's what my blog is about... The excitement that comes in celebrating life's big and little (and, often times, over-the-top) milestones.

5) And of course, the age old question - Coke or Pepsi? :) 

COKE.  Diet, vanilla, lime, cherry... It's all good :)


Yay, another Coke fan. I mean, really, IS there any other soda?! Anyway, I hope you guys head over to Tabby's blog and say hi. I promise you, there's something there for everyone - crafters, mommies, party planners, people who like humor (which, hello, is everyone).

Ciao, lovelies!
