Welcome to Monday Meet & Greet, where I introduce a new blogger each Monday. This week’s blogger is Laura Andry from Mom Mart.
How did you decide what to name your blog?: I am a stay at home mother with two little boys. My husband always jokes around about how certain “jobs” around the house are mine and fall under my job description. I told him I felt like one of those superstores that is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, and that he could just refer to me as MomMart from now on.
Tell us a little bit about you: I am a stay at home mother with a 5-month-old baby boy and a 2 1/2 -year-old little boy. My boys are 100% boy 100% of the time and I love it! I have been happily married to my best friend going on five years now and couldn’t feel more blessed. I am a Christian and thank the Lord everyday for all the blessings in my life. I am a glass half full type of girl who looks for the humor in every situation. I am an organizational neat freak who loves being crafty and creative. I have been blogging since April 2011 after deciding that I wanted to try my hand at writing. So far, it has been a lot of fun.
Tell us five of your favorite things and five of your least favorite things:
5 Favorite Things:
My family. I love my entire family, they are my best friends. I have a great relationship with my in-laws and truly love spending time with each and every member of my family.
Baby Gear. I am completely addicted!
Vacations where I don’t have to drive. If I have to drive it is not a vacation.
The smell of apples. Yummy!
Pedicures. Nothing makes me feel more pampered than pretty toes.
5 Least Favorite:
Rude People. I have no idea where manners have vanished to, but they need to make a come back!
Heels. I strongly dislike wearing heels. They hurt my feet.
Long lines. Really, no need to explain.
Getting lost. I feel incredibly vulnerable when I am lost.
Asking for help. I am stubborn and like to think that I can do anything and everything on my own and I rarely ask for help, even when I need it. It is a big fault of mine.
When and why did you start blogging?: I started seriously blogging in April 2011 after having suffered from mastitis. I had no idea what was wrong with me and I was frightened. I had a hard time finding information about this subject and decided that I would share my experiences with others and put my information out there. I wanted to write and this was what really pushed me to start doing it.
What do you blog about?: I guess it is more accurate to ask me what I don’t blog about. I share my experiences and my perspectives as a stay at home mom. I talk about breastfeeding, potty training, family friendly activities, crafts for kids, blog hops, product reviews, giveaways, and have recently started adding quick and easy recipes. I essentially share my life.
What is your favorite blog post ever?: Potty Training William Continued. I think my whole potty training experience is too funny. I laugh every time I think about it.
What is your favorite item you ever reviewed?: My Hoover Vacuum Cleaner!!
