Sunday Social

1. What do you value most in life?
My family. Drew and Fynn and Zoey. If everything else were gone tomorrow, I'd be okay, I mean I wouldn't love it (I do love my creature comforts), but they're all I really need.

2. What do you think is the greatest invention in your life and why?
I'm assuming this question mean something that was invented since I've been alive, so I'm going to go with smart phones. The ability to access information, social media, phone calls, texts, etc... genius... I can't imagine being without it now. Yes, I know that's sad. But when you're a busy mom who works full time, goes to grad school, and tries to stay organized, a smart phone is a life saver.

3. What do you think is the secret to a good life?
Appreciating what you've got. I'm guilty of this all too often. I want more, I want better, and I don't just mean material things. Taking a moment to realize how good your life really is goes a long way and can make you appreciate how amazing things are. 

4. What would you most like to be remembered for when you’re gone?
Being a good mom. I know, cheesy and sappy... but when I'm gone, all I care is that Fynn remembers how much I love her and how I'm always there for her.

5. What accomplishment in your life are you most proud of?
I'm so proud of myself for having a natural child birth*. Honestly, how many women can say that? Gave birth to a beautiful baby girl without so much as an Advil to take the edge off. Yes, it hurt like hell, but it felt good to be able to do.

*Let's not get started on the debate of natural vs medicated childbirth. I did what felt right to me, to each her own.


  1. Congrats on your natural birth. It's a great thing. My first son was natural and with my daughter, I had an epidural. I wanted another with my last son, but he was already halfway out before I was able to say the word. If Hubs and I decide to have another, I want to have that baby at home.

    There is nothing cheesy about being remembered for being a good mom. Most good moms want that. I know I do. Have an awesome Sunday.


  2. I said Smart Phones too! Also, way to go on the natural child birth! I was like, GIVE ME ALL THE DRUGS RIGHT NOW, and so I got an epidural that lasted right up until it was time to push- and then *poof* it was gone! They tried adjusting it but I had 100% movement and 100% feeling. I ended up pushing for six hours and it was not fun!

  3. I love this post and as always, your honesty. AND I'm pretty porud of having an all natural birth too. Sometimes I feel like superwoman ;)

  4. I am hoping to have a natural childbirth as well in January :)
