I’m beginning to think that after last week it can only go up from here. It started with my epic parent fail and the drama of being THAT mom. I was just trying to keep it real as any Theta Mom would but when I blogged about the truth of performing reviews and giveaways, I sensed that I was in some serious need for some positive vibes on the blog.
I was thinking about a previous post about what makes bloggers REALLY follow a blog. What I found interesting is that the bloggers who commented actually admitted to following a blog because the person behind the blog is someone they could actually picture themselves being friends with in real life; a blogger who they connect with which may even override amazing content alone.
I was inspired by this discussion so I’ve decided to publish a post just. about. me. Something I rarely do but hoping you take this as an opportunity to get to know me a little better all in an effort to establish a further connection with you – the BEST readers on the planet.
So here we go ladies, in no particular order:
I am dreamer and a realist depending on the situation.
I love to write.
I am an over-analyzer especially if I can’t make an immediate decision.
I adore make-up and my must haves are some foundation, black mascara and a slammin’ good lipstick.
I am petrified of bees.
I love vanilla ice-cream.
I have one (in particular) wonderfully written children’s manuscript just waiting to be published. I am still holding out for that big break and I won’t stop until I am officially a published children’s book author.
I grew up at The Jersey Shore but my Jersey Shore is nothing like that portrayed on MTV.
The ocean is one of my favorite “places” in the world.
I met my husband in a bar. (I think that deserves its own post so, to be continued…)
I attended graduate school in NYC, an unforgettable experience and impressionable time in my life.
I have two beautiful children.
I love to dance.
I took a pottery class and used to belong to a book club before I had kids. I was an avid reader and now? I read blogs…
I used to work out like a fanatic and now I am just trying to lose some of this “baby” weight. The operative word here is *trying*
My home used to be spotless…and then I had kids.
I never knew how much the Earth would shift when I became a mother.
I am currently a WAHM making this all work, every day.
I know who I am.
I know what I stand for.
I know what I want out of life.
I have high expectations and I am inspired by driven people.
I don’t tolerate negativity.
I admire women at the forefront of chasing after a dream.
I continue to dream big dreams and I encourage my children to dream big dreams…
I am strong-willed and full of conviction.
I am passionate, determined and hard working. I have an amazing work ethic and I have my parents to thank for that.
I had an unbelievable childhood – we didn’t have much money, but I was loved more than you could ever imagine. I am trying to replicate my childhood experience with my own children – and I’ll consider myself lucky if I can be even half of a parent that my own parents were to me.
I am learning from my mistakes and becoming a better mother in the process.
This blog has taught me more about myself and the sisterhood of motherhood.
This blog has become a platform to share my ideas and aspirations that I never even knew existed. I never knew how much I would love this blog and the ability to share my voice…
I am a Theta Mom – and I couldn’t be happier that you are here with me.
