We Want To Know!


give away 



I am so excited to be apart of this dynamic team co-hosting the Newest Weekly Link party!!


We Want to Know Wednesday Q&A is hosted by:

Impulsive Addict, Mamarazzi and Seriously Shawn & ME!!!

The theme of the Q&A this week is Friendship:

{1} Do you make friends easily?

I think I have both an introvert/extrovert personality.  There are times I find it easy to make friends and other times I think it is harder.  There is an added drama factor with girls and I guess the effortless and easy ones that just happen are the ones I most lean towards!

{2} What 3 qualities are a must in a friend?

Kindness, trustworthy and low maintenance

{3} What makes you a good friend?

Gosh, this is a tough one to answer.  I think each friend in my life has different needs, so to be the best I can be, I try to be the friend that they can count on when they are at their lowest and the one they turn to to share the most exciting news Ever!  I think I make for a good laugh with friends and am supportive!

{4} Have you ever met a bloggy friend in real life?

I haven’t met anyone in real life, but I have acquired a few blog pals that are my phone texting pals and skyping friends!!  I have a bunch of blog friends who were friends and are friends in real life.. but I’m assuming this means people I’ve never met before… so the short answer is No.

Yes? tell us about your meet up. No? who would you love to meet?

Everyone!! I know with pregnant brain, I will leave someone out, but let me just list a top 5 and this is not limited to just them, but to save space and time….there are so many awesome blogger pals!!! Lets all meet up!! Saturday at 2?

Jessica, Ashley, Amy, Liberty & Ashley

{5} Who is your best friend? Tell us about them.

Another good/tough question.  ‘Best friend’ is such a huge title and each person in my life who holds it, has a different role which is how I justify having more than One!

Hats in Bodrum Love of my life, Erik. My Numero Uno.  My Hero. My everything.  There are not enough words to describe the love I have for him and it grows deeper EVERY day.  Also known as ‘Babe’.

Pap & Pup with Blue Mosque behind My Dad.  Stephen.  Also better known as Pap.  Yes, my own parent is my best friend.  I know he holds my best interest at heart, as I do his and to say I love him a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck is just not enough to explain to all of you how much he means to me.

Janette posin' with Kaye My Step Mom. Kaye.. Also known as Gammy.  She has been in my life as my Mom figure for about 7 years or so and every year we grow closer.  She treats me as one of her own and as a friend which has a great balance.  I respect her opinion and often require it when I’m making choices in life!

IMG_1803 Jenny. Jennifer. Jenn… my longest known best friend that I foresee being old and wrinkly with when we are 99years old laughing about nothing just because we can.  There is an unspoken love for Jenny that only she and I understand.  We might as well be sisters because no time or distance or life event has torn us apart.

IMG_7181 Kristi. Sister and bestie from college… you know the one friend who knows all the silly things you did when you were ‘younger’ and through thick and thin we have remained strong and sometimes you just know when someone was sent from God to be your friend.

IMG_5241 Jacquie. JO. VBFF.. I always called her my virtual best friend.. we seem to be uber comfy with the fact that we are not the best at phones and may not have a chance to get together for every play date or occasion but she has been there for me and helped me hold it together because of her simplistic honesty and kindness!

I am sure I could say a lot more about each answer and I hope you are as challenged as I was to think of your post…So link up with us today and every Wednesday!! Don’t be shy!!! Tell us about you!! We are looking forward to learning more about our current blog pals and meeting new ones too!! Become a follower too (not a requirement, just a suggestion.

I loved looking at all your pictures! I'm still in that getting-to-know-you phase but I think we're gonna be great friends!

I totally didn't know you were pregnant! Well, I may have but the lasting effects from my ONE pregnancy may still be lingering because sometimes I feel my brain is mush.

Jessica said...

It's funny because your first answer is what I was trying to get at in mine! I think that is me as well. I'm also glad I'm not the only one that put a bunch of different friends it's so hard to pick just one, and I'm almost 30 that's a long time to make friends!! :)

Shawn said...

I love a low maintenance friendship! If being someone's friends is a job than it's not worth it!

I love that your hubby is your hero! I call mine Babe too.

Your Dad....I love this!

Your Step Mom...seriously I'm gonna cry. How sweet is that!

Nothing beats a long time, comfortable friend, it looks like you hit the friendship jackpot!

VandyJ said...

Neat that you have such great best friends. From someone who does not make friends easily, you're lucky!

Connie said...

I like the low maintenance quality. It's so important when you're a mom and don't have a lot of time.

Amy said...

Parents as friends is awesome once you are grown, you know we'd never have wanted that as TEENS!

Low maintenance is another great quality in a friend, I agree 100%!

sarajo said...

Rebekah said...

I have met some of my blog friends in real life and it is soooo fun! A few have actually become really dear friends of mine! You are so lucky to have such great real life besties!

Anonymous said...

Loved checking out your list of besties..you're definitely blessed with a great inner circle!

Natalia said...

Ooh I wish I would have thought of "low maintenance" as one of the qualities in a friend. That is definitely important.

Vivienne @ the V Spot said...

Nice to meet you! I love that you have your parents and your hub on your BFF list, and that you named "low maintenance" as a trait you wanted in a friend. That's awesome!

Dee said...

I thought I'd made it by all the blogs who hosted this meme but somehow I missed yours, I apologize!

Girl, you're so adorable lol! I love what you had to say about all of your besties, I hope they got to read it too!
