Lovely Ladies of May

May 18, 2012

It's that time again. But before I introduce these awesome ladies to you I'm going to share a truth. I'm a blog-a-holic. I admit it. I read way too many blogs but I can never have too many bloggy friends. There is no such thing. I feel better having admitted that. Now on to my ladies. Like always, they've answered three questions about themselves and shared three random things they'd like us to know. I hope you'll take a minute to read about them and visit their blogs. Enjoy!

Meet Alli from Neither Rhyme Nor Reason
  • Why do you blog? I blog as a way to journal the every day happenings in my life and to support people who might be going through adoption plans.
  • Where do you live? And what do you love or hate about it? I live in Utah.  Mostly I love that my family is here. I used to dream of moving away as soon as possible, but now I can't imagine living without my family so close. What do I hate about it?  Snow. I should be living in Southern Utah.

  • Random 2~ I hate apartment living and can't wait until the day we can own a home.
  • Random 3~ I have misophonia.

Meet Mindy from My Life As Mindy
  • Why do you blog? I blog because I found I missed writing after I finished my masters program. I had been blogging for about a year, but it was more for fun. Then in January, I realized writing was an outlet for me and I needed it. 
  • Where do you live? And what do you love or hate about it? I live in sunny Tucson, AZ. I love it here! Even though it is hot is misrible, it is my home and I wouldn't change it. The desert in bloom is a beautiful sight! 
  • What is your favorite drink? My favorite drink changes all the time. Coffee is always apart of the mix! I am currently trying to drink less Pepsi and more Iced Tea or water. 
  • Random 1~ I want to write a book one day.
  • Random 2~ I want to get my PhD in Education.
  • Random 3~ I love Jelly beans.

Meet Tiff from The Coffeehouse
  • Why do you blog? I started blogging as a way to document my life... to remember all the crazy, exciting and adventurous stuff that happens while sitting at home with husband and lab. I continue to blog because I love meeting new people, listening to their stories and sharing some of my own. It's a great big blog world out there. And I am officially hooked. 
  • Where do you live? And what do you love or hate about it? Kansas. Love the sunsets. Hate the humidity.
  • What is your favorite drink? My maiden name was Wine. I'm not kidding. Tiffany Wine. That should answer that question.
  • Random 1~ I'm a certified scuba diver.
  • Random 2~ I wanted to be a veterinarian as a little girl.
  • Random 3~ I hate science (see why the vet thing didn't work out so well?)

Meet Kristina from From City Corporate to Suburb Mama
  • Why do you blog? Blogging is an outlet for me in my crazy life as a stay at home mami of three kiddos, 6, 3 and 1. I started my blog shortly after quitting my full time job of 7 years to stay home with my  kiddos. 
  • Where do you live? And what do you love or hate about it? We live right outside of NYC in NJ for two more months and then we'll be moving back into NYC where we work, go to church and do most of our lives. We lived there 4 years ago and cannot wait to get back. We are so excited about being close to our church community which is so much more like family! Having several friends in a 10-20 block radius will be so amazing, especially in NYC! 
  • What is your favorite drink? coffee! ;)
  • Random 1~ I'm the oldest of three.
  • Random 2~ I'm a lefty.
  • Random 3~ Peanut butter and chocolate are my favorite combination of sweets!

Meet Lena from Mom2MemphisAndRuby

  • Why do you blog? I blog to keep me sane! I love that it's something I do ''just for me.''  AND the fact that I've made some wonderful friendships along the way is just icing on the cake!
  • Where do you live? And what do you love or hate about it? I live in a small town in Quebec, Canada.  I love that the community is close-knit and there for each other... but being so small also means gossip travels around these parts. Not cool.
  • What is your favorite drink? That would be a tie between a hot cup of tea or an ice-cold Diet Dr. Pepper. ♥
  • Random 1~ I hate cheese.
  • Random 2~ I kinda love ''Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventures'' on Nick (ha! if you know what show I'm talking about, you probably love it too!!:)
  • Random 3~ I'm horrible at giving directions, and I hate driving in the city.

Meet Patricia from Little Red Writing Hood

  • Why do you blog? I like being able to re-read over my travels, pursuits, and my life in general. I consider my blog a kind of personal writer's scrapbook. It's also for inspiration! And a place to vent.
  • Where do you live? And what do you love or hate about it? I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. I love the scenery and culture here. You might not think "Utah" and "culture" go hand in hand, but you'd be surprised.  
  • What is your favorite drink? Is it too boring if I say water? I drink water like it's going out of style. But as far as "real" drink goes I'm a fan of pina coladas. Any time of year. 
  • Random 1~ I'm left handed and I loooove being left handed. I'm like the left-handed encyclopedia. I can name over a hundred famous people who are left handed.
  • Random 2~ Most of the music I listen to is soundtrack or classical. To some it's boring. To me it's inspiring!
  • Random 3~ I can sing various songs in ten different languages. I don't know how that happened. 

Meet Stephanie from Potentially Delightful
  • Why do you blog? I blog because it's my "space" - I can show off my creative side, fashion, life, etc, in a place where other people can relate to me and share similar interests that I do.
  • Where do you live? And what do you love or hate about it? I live in Missouri. I love that my family is near (that's about it- I really don't like Missouri). I hate almost everything else. 
  • What is your favorite drink? My favorite drink is Sweet Tea.
  • Random 1~ I used to hate the color pink.
  • Random 2~ I like eating peanut butter & banana sandwiches.
  • Random 3~ I used to have my lip pierced and I miss it a lot but I had to take it out for work.

Meet Brittney from The Musings of a Twenty-Something Wife

  • Why do you blog? I'm not really sure why I blog to be honest. It started as just something that I wanted to do for fun. Now, it has turned into so much more. I love thinking of new things to write about and connecting with my readers. Blogging has added a lot of meaning to my life and has helped me to discover who I really am! So in short I guess I just blog for me.
  • Where do you live? And what do you love or hate about it? I live near Baltimore. What I love is that I'm so close to the water. I love the beach, and boat rides and swimming. And while we are close to the water we still have a great city life with amazing shopping and restaurants. 
  • What is your favorite drink? Oh, I have a lot of favorite drinks. 1. Water. 2. Coke. 3. Lemon drop martini - not necessarily in that order. ;)
  • Random 1~ I'm not sure what my natural hair color is - I've been highlighting/dying since 8th grade and after I get it done I head strait to my mother's house to see if she likes it, if she likes it then I do because her opinion is the most important. 
  • Random 2~ My husband is famous
  • Random 3~ I could eat sugary cereal for any meal. I love me some frosted flakes, cinnamon toast crunch, smacks, fruit loops... yumm!!

Meet Kirsten from Through the Front Door
  • Why do you blog? This is a funny question because my fiance asks me this all the time. When I tell him about a new series I'm starting or whatnot, he'll say, "I just don't get why you do that, it just seems like WORK." But to me, blogging is's one of the things I do for me. I get to talk about what I love most (home design), and the rewarding part is that there are people out there who actually care about what I have to say. I originally started blogging in order to document all the wonderful design inspiration I would find while I perused the internet.  Back before the days of Pinterest (gasp!), I would bookmark everything I found...and I hated bookmarks.  Because there were no pretty pictures, I would always forget what I saved, and would never be able to find what I was looking for.  So, I decided to try my had at blogging. Once I started, I fell in love...and now that I've gotten the opportunity to meet so many other wonderful bloggers and hear their stories, I can't imagine NOT blogging.
  • Where do you live? And what do you love or hate about it? Well, currently, I'm homeless. Just kidding, kind of. I'm in the process of moving back to Minnesota from Denver, so in the meantime I'm staying with my best friend. But - Denver, I adore. It is seriously probably one of my favorite cities. I mean, you can drive for 30 minutes in be in the mountains, the winters are mild, the summers are outstanding, and the city itself is just amazing. However, I do miss my lakes...and my family, which brings me to Minnesota. I was born and raised in Minnesota, Duluth to be particular, which is right on the pointy part of Lake Superior. The lakes are by far the most spectacular part of Minnesota (over 15,000 of them!), and in the fall if you drive up the north shore you will see the most gorgeous fall colors ever. Even though I grew up in Duluth, I call Minneapolis home. I went to undergrad there, and that's where majority of my family is...not to mention my fiancé. It is such a fun city (you all need to visit). As for what I don't like about Minnesota...well for one, the INSANELY cold winters. I'm talking seriously freeze your tush off cold. Also, the humidity can be a bit much in the summer, as well as the mosquitos. Otherwise, I love the state.
  • What is your favorite drink? My favorite drink is any drink that is mango flavored...although I am particularly fond of mango margaritas. YUM.
  • Random 1~ I'm really tall.  Like, 5' 10" tall.  And I love to wear heels. 
  • Random 2~ I think bananas taste better when they're sliced.  Seriously. 
  • Random 3~ I'm terrified of spiders.  I blame it on watching Arachnophobia when I was 4 (gee thanks Mom and Dad...why'd you let me do that?)

Meet Malo from Life Feels Good in Portbail Beach
  • Why do you blog? I started blogging at Life feels good in Portbail Beach in August 2011. We had just moved here and I wanted to write about my everyday life in our new place. Little by little, I discovered new blogs, new universes, new atmospheres and I realized it could be more than just a daily journal. So I also started writing about anything that interests me such as music, movies, latest favourites... What is awesome about blogging is meeting new people from all over the world and being in contact with adorable women. Blogging is my new hobby and I try to develop it by writing more and in a better English (minus the French accent!).
  • Where do you live? And what do you love or hate about it? I live with my fiancé Ludo and our cat Garfield in Portbail, a small port in Normandy. This part of France is very marked by WW2 (we live next to the Allies landing beaches) and we have lots of museums and monuments dedicated to this period. We also live near Cherbourg, known for being an arsenal and one of Titanic's port of calls. A permanent exhibition about the ship has just opened here. I love living here. It's beautiful, peaceful and we love being surrounded by green, apple trees and cows! That is not a cliché, we do have lots of them!
  • What is your favorite drink? I'm addicted to cappuccino. I can drink up to 10 cappuccinos a day. The only wrong side about that addiction is that I spend a lot of time in the ladies' room!
  • Random 1~ I work full-time as a teacher. I teach English to pupils aged 10 to 15 in a rural school. I love my job even if it can be very tiring and oppressive sometimes. We do have many hats : I am the English teacher, but I can also be the nurse, the social worker, the psychologist, even the big sister or the mama.
  • Random 2~ Ludo and I are getting married in August 17, 2013. I am going to be his Mrs and am so happy and proud of it ! We're looking forward to that day and I actually plan to write many posts about the planning of our wedding.
  • Random 3~ Apart from being addicted to cappuccino, I also have a huge addiction for movies and TV series. Right now, I'm pretty much into TV series. We are a bit late here in France, I've just finished Pretty Little Liars and am currently watching Mad Men season 1. A few weeks ago I was completely obsessed with The Walking Dead and Downton Abbey, to such an extent that I often dreamt of zombies in my garden and talked like Lady Mary Crowley. Weird.
