Let's Have Coffee

Good morning, friends.  Grab a cup of coffee and lets chat.  I'm asking a few random questions that I'll be answering and I'm hoping you will answer some as well.  Chime in on whatever questions you want, and lets have some fun. 

How long have you been blogging?

I've been blogging since 2009.  I started this blog and then deleted it a couple of times.  I really, really wish I wouldn't have done that because now I wish I had all of those old posts back... back when my kiddos were really small.  Emma was 2, Jesse was 5 & Gracie would have been 8.  What was I thinking?!

Where would you love to go on your next Vacation?

I have so many places that I would love to travel and see, but if I had to pick right this minute, I'd head to Mexico with Dan.  I've been to Mexico before, so it's not new, but it's faster to get to than some places, and I would eat more than my share of Mexican food, and lounge in the sun for a whole week with my love and a stack of books.

Tell me where you would go if could board a plane right this minute?  Would you be nice and take your kids, or maybe go on a girls trip, or would you take your spouse, or maybe even go all by yourself?

If you knew you would be successful, what would you do?

I would love to be an Author... I love thinking of all the quaint little places where I would sit and write my books.  I have so many different stories in my head.  Maybe someday I will make time to sit and get them all out on paper.

What about you guys?  If you knew you would be successful, what would you do?

How do you stay up to date on your favorite blogs?

I used to bookmark my favorite blogs, and then I started saving the blogs I liked to read onto my blog, so it would show me which of the blogs had new posts.  And then about a year ago, I switched over to Bloglovin... but I'm still not totally satisfied.   Anyone else have any tips or advice on how you stay up to date on all your favorite blogs?   What's the easiest way to stay up to date on the blogs you like to read, without clicking on each site... because nobody has time for that.  Seriously, help a girl out!

Okay, that's all I've got today.  Make sure you chime in and answer something about yourself.  It makes it more fun when we can learn about each other.  Plus, if we were actually having coffee and chatting, I sure hope I wouldn't be the only one talking.  ;)



  1. And on your way to Mexico, you could have a layover in San Antonio and come see me! :-p My dream vacation would be to go to a Thai beach...someday it'll happen! If I could be successful, I'd like to be a speaker/author for foster/adopt encouragement. It's something that I think could really happen someday though we're fairly new to it and I hate speaking in front of people. Maybe my hubby could be the speaker and I could be the organizer :)

  2. Lovely post! I enjoy getting to know bloggers better and this is one way to do that. I have my favorite blogs on my side bar and just click on them. It works for me. I have Bloglovin' as well but don't use it all that much. Happy day!

  3. Love this! I use blogger to follow my blogs. and think about it, you are kind of an author already with your blog.

  4. Thanks for sharing! I love reading about bloggers!! I just started blogging, but I definitely think it's a great idea for moms to keep track of life on. One day I hope to do that. I too can't figure out how to keep track of all of my favorite blogs. I have added a lot to my home screen on my phone, but there are just too many now. Then, I bookmarked some but tend to forget to go back and look in my bookmarks. Some I subscribe and get an email. I need help on that one too!!

    1. It definitely seems like there should be a better system doesn't it?! I'm heading over to check out your blog now. :)

  5. Love this! I've been blogging since 2013. Seems like forever ago.
    I'd go somewhere sunny on vacation. Without kids, haha!
    If I knew I'd be successful I'd probably own my own gym.
    I use Bloglovin too, but just go directly to my faves sometimes. I'm thinking of bookmarking them all under one tab, but I read so much on my phone I don't know if that would work.
