Mystery Blogger Award! Left Me Like a Deer in Headlights!


Ya’ll I can’t even! I’m completely overwhelmed and giddy at this nomination because 1. I’m like a newborn babe when it comes to blogging. {heck my writing still hasn’t shed it’s proverbial lanugo yet} and 2. I resembled my pug pup when he hears a cellophane wrapper opening whenever I read my blog on the list of nominees, overly excited but having no idea where to even start! SO with that being said if I totally screw this up, please forgive me because like I said before, I’m new! I was nominated in my post from January 25, 2018 Words Society has Forgotten. by Wrae {even her name is super cool}

Thanks so much for the nomination! I love your blog because it’s always something different and REAL and enlightening’s just a soft place to land when it’s been a hard day.

Three things about myself: 

  1. I won a writing essay when I was in second grade and in high school I wrote short stories that I kept in a three-ring binder which I hid under my bed so my siblings and parents wouldn’t find it.{They were kinda risqué, <–this was before I was Saved.}
  2. I never was big into playing with baby dolls or dreamed about having kids and 2 weeks before finding out I was pregnant at 17 with my oldest daughter I looked my uncle square in the eyes and told him I was NEVER having kids. {I now have 4}
  3. In high school I aspired to move out of my small sleepy hometown and make it big in a big city {every kids dream right?!} but never made it out until taking my second daughter to Atlanta for the Aquarium which was when I realized I HATE big cities and would much rather stick to my dusty dirt roads and creaky front porch swings.

My questions from Wrae:

  1. What is your go-to favorite restaurant? A little Mexican restaurant in Valley Grande, the chips are the crispest, the gouda the cheesiest, and the owner is the friendliest!{I think we have had to pay maybe 6 times tops, Miguel always beats us to the register!}
  2. What was your favorite subject in school? ART! Mrs. Taylor was da bomb!
  3. What is your not-so-favorite household chore? I’m a mother of 4 littles–LAUNDRY. {seriously though what’s the point in folding it?!}
  4. What do you like most about blogging? I like how I can sit down with sometimes only one word and the rest of the article just pieces itself together, like an out-of-body experience, I know I’m wrestling something but I don’t know what it is until the article is finished and I realize it for myself..and then I share it with the world in case someone else needs it too.
  5. What color do you wear the most? My favorite color of all time {ask my mom}. Red.
