My questions from Jennifer
1. What is your favorite thing about yourself? 
That I am compassionate. For the longest time I thought that I was too emotional and sensitive, getting teary eyed at the sight of someone that is homeless. But now I think that having compassion for people is pretty important. 
2. What is your favorite thing about your significant other? 
He can make me laugh all the time, even in difficult circumstances.

3. What is the most challenging thing about being a mom for you?
I am pregnant with my first baby so I am not sure yet!

4. What is your biggest fear?
It is a pretty close call between heights and spiders.

5. If you could live anywhere in the entire world where would you live and why?
This is a tough one. I want to live close to my family, but I would love to live in a place that is warm for most of the year.

6. If you could meet any celebrity, who would it be?
Jennifer Lawrence, she seems pretty funny.

7. Why did you start your blog?
I recently started blogging again so I could document my pregnancy and family/friends could keep updated.

8. What are your top 3 favorite blogs to read?
Man oh man. I honestly look forward to reading all of the blogs I follow but my top three faves currently are 

9. What is your top beauty must have product?
Right now it is this tea tree oil moisturizer. It isn't too heavy, it doesn't cause my sensitive skin to break out & I can use it while I'm pregnant!

10. Finish this sentence: "I can't go one day without ______"
Chewing gum & chapstick. I know, pretty darn exciting.

11.What is your worst bad habit?
Who has bad habits? Probably overreacting about things and taking it out on my husband.  I get all worked up over some silly stuff sometimes and unfortunately he is usually my outlet. I'm working on it though!
