An Exciting Life

Summer break is in full swing. I have officially forgotten what day it is (Fourth of July? right?), what it feels like to be a teacher, and what it means to have a busy schedule. I know, a super rough life, right? So what have I been doing with all of my spare time?

Suntanning on the roof deck.

Enjoying a few cat naps with Finn.

Eating lots of food.

Drinking smoothies (and other fabulous beverages).

Not very exciting I can tell you, but pretty awesome nonetheless. My life over here on the East Coast may be a bit boring to you these days. So I thought you should meet someone that is less than boring to make up for my lack of excitement these days. Lena from Mom 2 Memphis and Ruby is pretty much awesome. She's a rockin' mom of two that has great fashion sense and also happens to be one of the sweetest people I've met in the blogger world. Plus, we both share a passion for photography so she's got that going for her too!

Tell us a little about you.

I am a fashion-loving, photo-taking thrifty & tattooed mom of 2! 

How did you start blogging?
I started blogging after my son was born journaling his milestones.  In April 2011, it became more of a hobby & I've expanded to blog about pretty much everything!
What are your favorite things about blogging?
Meeting new people, gaining inspiration.

What do you do when you're not blogging?
I'm a full-time working mom.  So when I'm not at the office, I'm home with the kids... but I do love photography as well, and I've been doing a lot of that lately too!!
What are three of your favorite blog posts and why?

This is one of my favorites. It was fun to get inside Ruby's head while I wrote this post. She's such a sassy & spunky little one that it's hard not to blog about her  It's a post I'll be happy to look back on with her when she's older! ♥

Because it's really one of the ONLY things I cook WELL!  haha

Because I think this shows off how adventurous I can be when it comes to fashion! We all need those fun pieces in our wardrobe that make us happy... and maybe make others think we're a little crazy! 
What other bloggers inspire you?
I love Joanna Haughton of ModaMama, I think she's so real & sassy... and cool & talented!  Definitely a fashionable mama you should check out if you haven't already!
Another fave I've recently discovered is Julie of  The Funny Of It Is.  She's hilarious, original, gorgeous, smart and totes awesome! Definitely a current blog crush!
Thanks so much, Lena for being on my blog today! :)
