Blog Party!!!


How would people describe your personality? (If they could only use ONE word.) Are they right?
outgoing and yes I am but there is definitely a part of me that wants to stay inside and not talk to anyone

What celebrity/celebrities would create a “Star-Struck” feeling if you saw them in real life?
Garth Brooks- just saw him in one of the Nashville concerts and I was completely star-struck

Who is your favorite blogger? Why?

I love Kellys Korner- She blogs about real life and doesn't make it sound like she has all the answers

What is your comfort food/drink?
My comfort food is chicken tenders and fries. I am from the south so give me a big sweet tea with that and I am good!

Be brave – tell us something very random and weird about yourself.
I have random thoughts all the time. I will be in the car with my husband and just belt out why do birds fly?

Do you have a strong desire to do something you’ve never done? What is it?
I have a desire to stay at home with my child. I am very lucky that she stays with family while I work and I don't have to do daycare but I feel like I am missing so much!

Movies: Action, Drama, Romantic Comedy, Documentary, Comedy? What are your favorite genres?
I like a different variety of movies. Everything from a good comedy to a drama.. not too much on scary movies though!

Books: Fiction, Non-Fiction, Romance, Biographies, True Stories, Self-Help, Devotional/Study? What are your favorite types of reading material?
Mostly nonfiction but I love Dave Ramsey so I have read his books

Music: Funk, Rock, Country, Jazz, Classical, Film Score, Blues, Classic Rock, Crooner, Alternative, Heavy Metal, Techno? What are your favorite types?
Mostly country but I will branch out a little

If you inherited a million dollars, what is the first thing you would do with your money?
I would stay home with my girl and give money to my church and charities that I support such as St Jude. I would like to say that's all but I would buy a new house, and probably a ton of clothes for Bailey.. I do have a shallow side.
Name one weakness of yours (confession is good for the soul).

I have a weakness for not being satisfied. I want bigger, better.. I am working on it!
If you could live anywhere at all (and take all your loved ones with you), where would you go?
Def Hawaii!!

Strange Talent? Can you juggle basketballs, put your legs behind your head or perform some other strange feat?
Not that I can think of!

What’s something you consider yourself to be good at? (Don’t worry, it’s not bragging, it’s acknowledging a God given gift).
I am good at getting great deals on cute clothes for my girl!!

What is one of your favorite things to catch a whiff of?
cookies baking in the oven!

When you leave a social gathering, do you wish: You would have talked more or You would have talked less?
Hmmm depends on the gathering and who I am around... I have been on both sides on this one

If money wasn’t a factor, what stores would you shop in?
I would still shop everywhere!

What is your greatest fear or strange phobia?
My biggest fear is that something bad will happen to my husband or daughter.. I don't know how I would go on without them

What is your greatest accomplishment?
Being a mommy and learning from mistakes.. I am not the best but I strive hard to be!

What are your favorite animals?
Dogs but after cleaning up after a toddler and a dog, I think fish are pretty cool!

What movie or book character can you most relate to?
hmmm...I really have no clue!


  1. You daughter is beautiful. I love the header picture!

  2. Your blog is adorable!

    I'm a huge Dave Ramsey fan too!

  3. Hahaha, your fish comment was perfect! :) And by the way... BEAUTIFUL header! What a beautiful daughter. Nice to meet you!

  4. You have a lovely blog and a gorgeous baby daughter! It was a pleasure stopping by!

  5. Thank you everyone for your sweet comments! I am glad to be able to share a part of my life and see a part of yours in this "blog" community! I look forward to following everyone's blogs!

  6. Hi Melissa! Your blog banner is preh....shuss!! My girl is a Bailey, too, but she is 18 years old! I can so identify with people thinking you are a snob because you are quiet or shy. My natural self is still incredibly shy, but God has done some amazing work in making me outgoing when He needs me to be to serve Him :) Have fun blog partying. Lisa

  7. Glad to get to know you. Sorry about your mom, but you are probably right that she was a gift from your mom. She is too cute. After having two boys I can't wait for my daughter to get a bit older, so she can help pickout her cute clothes.

  8. Hi...What a sweet picture and a precious little girl.

    Lisa... who commented above, is my daughter and so I am Bailey's grandma. I love that name!

    Have a happy day!

  9. I love the banner picture! Sweet, elegant, sophisticated, cute, charming, adorable...what a terrific picture!

  10. Hi Melissa. I think fish are cool too, especially salt water fish. The colors are amazing!

    That picture in your header - SO CUTE! I love it!

    I'm glad you linked up to the party so I could pop by for a visit. I hope you had a great time at the blog party and met some neat people.

    Take care!
