I'm Fillin' in the Blank Friday! :)

Happy FRIDAY, all! TGIF is all I can think about today-- especially considering I totally thought it was Friday, yesterday. What a bummer that was! ;)

I'm linking up with sweet Lauren today-- be sure to check out her FITB Friday here & linkup if you want to join in the fun!

1. I started my blog because: everyone is doing it! ;) I had a handful of girls from college who started blogs and I always enjoyed reading along with theirs as a way of keeping in touch. I also have always loved to write, but hadn't done much of it and thought this would be a great way to get back into the habit!

2. One thing I LOVE seeing on other blogs:  are real, honest stories that sometimes make you laugh, sometimes make you cry, and sometimes make you think. I love to hear honesty in other's writing.

3. Something I like about blogging: is the community and friendship that you see everywhere! I've had so many bloggers offer up great advice about blogging from the get-go! Many thanks to those ladies ;)

4. A favorite blog post of mine is probably: our love story, it was so fun to retell it and share pictures of our relationship through the years (and also see how much has changed in that time!!)

5. Something my friends in real life know about me that I've never mentioned on my blog is: that I'm weird. Or maybe I don't have to mention it on my blog for you to pick up on that- but my 'real-life' friends definitely know :) I burst out into song/dance at any given moment, I talk in weird accents sometimes because I crack myself up, I don't really like chocolate unless it's combined with peanut butter, I love sports just as much as I love shopping, etc!

6. My new favorite blogs to read are: Recently Roached, The Sweet Life, Teach.Run.Love, Married With a Pup, Enjoying the Small Things, Peas & Crayons -- I could go on all day, there are so many!!

7. Some things I tend to avoid doing on my blog are: oversharing (there is a fine line, people!) and venting-- there is a time and place for everything though so I just try to keep everything positive & in perspective ;)

Tomorrow I'm going to attempt my first 'freezer cooking' and will be sure to keep you posted on how it goes!! Then J has a Valentine's date planned for us Saturday night-- it's a surprise! -- so I'm excited about that. Hope everyone has a FANTASTIC Friday & weekend!


  1. i love recently roached and married with a pup too their blogs are too cute!

  2. number 2 and 3 are so, SO true. i never anticipated the relationships i would form with other bloggers- i love it!!

    have fun on your valentines date, make sure you take some pictures for the blog ;) cant wait to hear about it!

  3. Have fun on your surprise V-day date! :) I'm going to see The Vow tonight with Justin and I can't wait!


  4. :) Thanks for the tag! Hope your date goes well.

    I struggle to not overshare on my blog, too! :) Grahm is always getting onto me. "You seriously put that??" haha!

  5. Aww thanks, LOVE your blog too!!! I try to keep everything positive as well because I feel like there is a fine line of sharing too much! Hope you had a great weekend.


Thanks SO much for taking the time to read and comment on my blog! I read each one and love to respond and chat with you! :)
