Welcome to Monday Meet and Greet, where I introduce a new blogger each Monday. This week’s blogger is Stacie from Staying Me.
How did you decide what to name your blog?: I’m trying to make myself a better wife, mother, and person in general, without changing who I am. So Staying Me (just creating a better version) is what I came up with!
Tell us a little bit about you: I’m a stay at home mom of four girls – ages 15, 12, 3, and 18 months. I have been married to the Computer Dude for over 13 years, and plan on at least quadrupling that! During the very little free time I get, I enjoy working on one of the unfinished crochet or cross stitch projects I have. Someday I plan on learning to run, but haven’t gotten around to that yet.
Tell us 5 of your favorite things, and 5 of your least favorite things:
Favorite: Piano music, reading, Autumn, chocolate, and learning new things.
Least favorite: Traffic, washing dishes, beets, bills, and people that chew food with their mouth open (more of a pet peeve item, isn't it?).
What do you blog about?: I love to bring reviews and giveaways to my readers, but I also like to write about the struggles of being a mom, trying to be healthy, and finding time for myself.
When do you find the time to blog?: Now that school has started, my old morning blogging time is gone, so now I blog at night, or during nap time.
What is your favorite item you ever reviewed?: Definitely the Chevy Equinox!
What brand or product would you really like to work with/review?: Oh, there’s so many! Vera Bradley is probably my current goal.
What has been your biggest blogging challenge and how did you overcome it?: Wanting too much too fast was and is my biggest challenge. Still working on being patient and working harder!
What advice would you give a new blogger?: Have patience and realistic goals, and don’t give up!
