Blogging with a Purpose - Week 1

I always see these things and I'm quick to jump on the band wagon and then ... I quickly fall off so I'm sure this is no exception, but I'm going to give this a whirl!

Week 1 is Who I am.


I don't know ever really know where to start. Do I start with the obvious stuff? I'm a mom, a wife, i love taking pictures of my family, I try to blog but then fall off the planet for weeks at a time. I'm a Christian woman doing my best to live for Jesus.

I'm not too much of a TV fan. There are things I watch with Conrad. Food Network, SUV, other randoms. My mom and I love to watch Bachelorette {and the bachelor}. I love 19 kids and Counting. I love Friends. I can watch rerun after rerun. I just love them!

I have a temper but in the recent months, I've really worked hard on it. I want to be a good example of self control for my children. Controlling my tongue can be tough.

I love cherry coke!

I am a wife to Conrad. Marriage is tough but so worth all those bumpy patches. I try every day to love him and show him how much he means to me.

Carmel frappucinos are also the the key to my heart.

I'd rather text than talk. Who am I kidding? When ever the phone is on my ear is when someone seems to NEED me the most.

I use the calendar on my phone and the Cozi app as a back up. If it's not in there, it's not going to happen.

I love my kids. They drive me crazy and pull me in 900 different directions. Destroy the house. Fight with one another and then make up in a blink of an eye. I still wouldn't trade being there mommy for anything.

I'm trying to be a runner. Ok, not like a runner runner. I'm trying to enjoy running. I prefer the treadmill. I can zone out, listen to my music and just run usually not for too long. Or very quickly but it's a start.

I love laughing.

I'm far from perfect and I know. But, I put more pressure on myself, thinking that others will think less of me if I don't xyz ... deep breathes and remember that I don't have to be perfect.

I'm tired. These kids and that husband of mine keep be busy. If it wasn't for caffeine, I don't think I'd survive.

So that's me.

linking up with From Mrs. to Mama

Next week topic is 10 things I live for.


  1. Stopping over from mrs. to mama. We are a lot a like. I am a wanna be runner, I love my kids abd they drive me nuts too, my calendar is where it all happens and I love coffee!!

    1. I saw on a previous post of yours about delivering coffee to friends. That's awesome! I totally need to start something like that with my friends. What a blessing!!

  2. Caffeine is God's gifts to moms, I'm totally convinced. And I'm trying to be a bit of a runnner myself. Good luck!!

  3. Those two shows are two of my favorites as well! I am obsessed with 19 and counting and their life... how calm that mom is amazes me! thank you for linking up :)
