7 Facts About Me...

I am very excited because Carolina over at Mama Instincts nominated me to share 7 facts about myself.  She has a great blog about natural mommyhood:). It was really fun to read her facts and felt honored when she nominated me, especially when she shared my blog's description.  Lately I have been wondering, "do my readers know what this is really all about."  when I read her description of my blog I was excited to see that she did, and hopefully others do too.  


Anyways, on to my 7 facts and 7 nominees :)
________________

Fact 1

I am a Christ Follower.  God has truly changed my life and I hope to share that with everyone I meet.  Not in a "I will hit you over the head with my Bible" way, but in love and actions.


Fact 2

I am a morning person through and through. And when I say morning person, I mean 3-4 am, some people are still up at night, morning person.  I just get better work done in the morning.   I used to deny it, but now I embrace it.  


Fact 3

I have trouble finding balance.  Aka, I think I can do it all.  But alas, there are only so many hours in the day and at some point you not only have to have priorities, but you have to drop some things.  Just because some thing is a "good thing" does not mean you are called to do it!


Fact 4

Our family has lived in 5 places in our first 5 1/2 years of marriage! We have been here there and everywhere.  We will be moving again soon, hopefully before we enter year number 6.  Guess we are averaging out at about a home a year.


Fact 5

I am way "crunchier" a mom than I ever thought I would be.  Maybe it started with the cloth diapers or the natural birth.  We bed shared for quite a while.  My daughter is almost 18 months old and still nurses.  I am not saying everyone should be like me… there is already way to much judgement and drama in the mama world and every family is different.  I am just saying I surprised myself.  


Fact 6

I love to eat…. just about anything.  Sweets, seafood, Mexican, BBQ, I just love food!


Fact 7

I like to run, but currently have not been finding the time.  I need to work on that!

  5. This is such a cute idea! It's very nice getting to know you a little better. I LOVE to eat too, and I would much rather wake up early than stay up late... but 4am? Wow. I'm more a 5:30/6:00 girl. :)

    1. Haha… well, I like to get stuff done before the little gets up ( and it just so happens she is an early riser too) and before I head to school!

  6. I love this post! It's always interesting to get to "know" a blogger.
    I was surprised when I became a mom because I had no idea I had all this crunchiness in me. Haha! We definitively have that in common.

    I feel ya on finding balance. I struggle with it every day and I think most moms do. Having my priorities straight and learning to let go has been a good exercise for me now that I have a toddler to tend to.

    I love to travel and move! We're planing a move in a few months but haven't moved as much as you have. Maybe you can write a blog about how you cope with moving into a new city now that you have a kid. I'd love to hear more about it. :)

  9. Nice to meet you! When you say morning person, you aren't kidding, huh? I'm a night owl, probably because I'm an actress and have late rehearsals. Any tips to being more peppy in the morning?

    1. Hmmm… that is a good question and maybe even a good post. Don't hit the snooze button is probably my biggest piece of advise! :)

  10. You are such a sweet friend :) Loved getting to know more about you and wish I was more of a morning person! I have been working on that one for YEARS!!! I'll make sure to participate this week :) Can't wait!!!! xoxo

  12. Thanks for sharing a bit about yourself. It was fun to read. I fall under your #5 category too. I think it was because of our first baby. You start to rethink everything you do when it comes to a fresh new life and you want to avoid all fake parts of life for them. I ended up nursing to 21 months! Yes, she stopped "drinking" when she turned 21 :) Thanks for sharing at the Art of Home-Making Mondays this week!

  13. So fun to get to know more about you, Stacia! I love hearing your take on things and it is so fun to "meet" you :) I am right there with you on the Mexican food, although it is a little hard to come by where we live now! And I wish I was able to function that early in the morning- I might get some stuff actually done before my four wake up!

    1. We lived in a place where Mexican food was hard to come by for a few years and it was sad!
      And I think that is part of the reason I get up so early… beat the little up!
