Blue Sky Tag:Blogging Challenge

Y'all, last week when my sweet friend Alix from A Pint Sized Life nominated me for the Blue Sky Challenge I was so excited. I admit I'd never heard of the Blue Sky Challenge before but I knew it was something I loved once I read her post.

This challenge is really fun. The person who was nominated has to answer 11 questions (given by the person who nominated them) then they have to nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 questions.

Thank you Alix for nominating me.

So let's get this party started

Why blogging?
I started blogging as a way to document mine and my son's lives several years ago. I also wanted our family out of state to be able to keep up with what was going on in our lives. I had no intentions of making it public much less of having sponsors and collaborating with big brands and other bloggers. Now blogging is my creative outlet. It's a place for me to voice the things that mean the most to me. I like to think this space is a peak inside my heart and soul. I love the friendships it's brought me and the chance to keep learning new things that I never would learn otherwise. My hope is that someone reads the words I type and finds inspiration and happiness. I want to inspire people to choose happiness and chase their dreams.

What’s the last thing you ate?
Peanut butter granola cups with a cup of coffee.

What’s your go-to outfit?
Lately it's been a loose fitting tank top and my favorite denim shorts because it's so hot here in Georgia.

Who’s you’re favorite band/singer?
Hands down, without a doubt it's Pink.

Hot or cold coffee/tea?
I believe in hot coffee and cold tea.

What’s your guilty pleasure?
Southern Charm on Bravo. It's like watching a hot southern train wreck but I can't stop.
I also love old movies like Breakfast at Tiffany's, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Seven Year Itch, etc.
Christmas time is my favorite time for all the vintage movies. I never get tired of White Christmas.

Snapchat or Insta-stories?
I'm all about InstaStories these days. I just love having everything on one app.
I'm usually watching InstaStories while I do my hair and make up. I'm kinda obsessed.

What’s your zodiac sign?
Aquarius. A water sign, which is no surprise if you know me at all!
See, I really am a mermaid!

Name your biggest accomplishment (so far)
Raising my son. There was a time in life when I started losing (and cutting out) friends in my life because of him. I was a single mom for 10 years of his life so I really feel a strong bond with him because of that. He's my why for everything I do.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Kauai, Hawaii. No joke, y'all. This place is heaven on Earth. When my husband & I went there on our honeymoon I might not of come home if it's wasn't for our son.

What’s your favorite quote?
I am a collector of quotes. Sometimes I feel like I could narrate my life in them so there are so many that I love but the two that are probably among my favorites are:

"Fairytales do not tell children that dragons exist. Children already know dragons exist. Fairytales tell children that dragons can be slayed."
"This morning, with her, having coffee." Johnny Cash when asked for his description of paradise.
