You know when you find a fellow blogger and realize you would be friends in "real life" if you actually met? Well that's how I feel about Vanessa from X-tremely V! Pretty sure we could do some damage in a Target together, if ever we got the chance ;) Let's get to know Vanessa a little better:
1. What is your favorite thing about being a Mommy?
Reliving some of my favorite things as a kid through X's eyes. Since he is only 3 years old we are just starting to get into the "fun things". He starts t-ball in a few weeks and I am sure I am more excited than he is! I played softball for many, many years so I can't wait to see him out on the field!
I completely agree with you! Seeing the world through my daughters' eyes is so much fun!
2. What do you wish you could get paid to do? The sky's the limit!
While there is a lot of things I wish I could get paid to do, I think I would say I would like to be a personal trainer. I love to workout! What better way to stay in shape and make a living?
Would you be my trainer then?!
3. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I have never been outside of the US (other than Canada) so I think exploring Europe would be amazing! I want to check out where my ancestors are from- England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany. And of course I couldn't go to Europe without visiting France too!
I would love to tour Europe!
4. Best meal you've ever eaten?
I am a super picky eater, I think I have the palate of a 5 year old! So many of you might think I am crazy, but some of my best meals come from chain restaurants. But not to bore you with a steak from Outback, one of my all-time favorite meals was this Parmesan encrusted chicken I had at the restaurant at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. We followed it up with creme brulee for dessert! I was seriously in food heaven!
5. A silly, irrational fear?
Any type of scary, horror, or suspenseful movie. I can't even watch a few seconds of a commercial without being terrified the rest of the night! And I almost always have nightmares. Even the snake from the Harry Potter movies freaks me out and I have nightmares!
I don't watch scary movies either, I'm highly suggestible and nightmares are all too real when your'e in them. Funny you mention Harry Potter, my daughter and I just watched the last one Pt.1 and she couldn't have cared less about the snake! #fearless
6. What's your go-to outfit?
Jeans, tee, and a baseball hat. I am a tomboy at heart.
I heart jeans+tees+sneakers!
7. Favorite book/ author?
I am not usually a book person (magazines on the other hand, watch out!), but I do own every one of Tori Spelling's books! Love her! And I have started quite the collection of the Duck Dynasty books. They are so relate-able.
I'm always on the look out for the next good read, I'll have to remember these.
8. Are you a beach/lake/mountain girl?
I grew up in Ohio right on Lake Erie. Since all the spots I went to the lake had a beach I think I am a combination of beach-and-lake girl. Of course Myrtle Beach has my heart as well!
Now your'e speaking my language: beach all the way!
9. Do you prefer April showers or May flowers?
Can I say neither? I am not a fan of rain or flowers. I think I have always been a Summer/Fall/Winter girl. Honestly if Ohio could get rid of Spring I would be totally ok with that.
Pretty sure I agree with you; California definitely needs the rain, but I think I only like the idea of flowers (allergies are no joke.)
10. Best piece of Mom advice?
Wow! This one is tough, because I am no expert. I guess the biggest thing I struggle with and would tell others is to let go of your expectations. Your child is not going to be exactly like you or your spouse. They are going to be themselves. Once you accept that (again still working on it) things will be so much easier to deal with.
Yes to this! You are a wise Mommy, Vanessa.
Thank you Vanessa for visiting today! I had fun interviewing you and I still hold fast to the notion we would be buddies, if it were geographically possible! Go visit X-tremely V today and say "hi" for me!
