For those of you who aren’t familiar with #AskAwayFriday it’s an amazing way to meet new bloggers, make friends and ask some questions to get to know them better!  10 questions are exchanged and answered on your partners blog, you can get as creative as you want and even get into our purses!

As always, tried and true we have the partners in crime, the ladies who created #AskAwayFriday…the wonderful Penny from The Real Housewife of Caroline County and Amber from Bold Fab Mom!!

Now that we’ve got all the business out of the way, let’s get into Week 14 of #AskAwayFriday!
This week I was my swap partner is Sarah from the Lomholt’s Family. She has two adorable little girls and if  you have not seen her blog please do so. Go check out the questions I asked her!
1. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
I have to admit that I own several pairs of shoes, boots and sandals! Clothes is not fun shopping for when your weight fluctuates and my shoe size doesn’t change. I have not counted but I’m sure over 30.
2.What is one of your favorite thing to do with your boys?
I love just to hang out with them whether it be watching a movie, cooking, or just talking and being silly.  And of course the cuddling!
3.Do you have a cherished childhood toy?
I don’t. I wish I would have saved the only cabbage patch doll I had!
4.What is your favorite Mexican meal to make?
This is a tough question because I love all mexican food. I would have to say good old fashioned beans. These are so yummy! This simple meal can turn into burritos, tacos, nachos, tostadas, etc.
5.What is your favorite non-alcohlolic drink?
Hands down Diet Coke!
6.Have you ever met any celebrities?
Yes, I have!  When I was younger and worked as a docent and a wedding coordinator at a historical home. I had the pleasure of meeting Edward James Olmos.  He was so nice and sincere.
7. If you could live anywhere with no worries in the world where would it be?
I love living in Southern California, the weather is perfect and the beaches are close. I don’t think I would move….., ok maybe even closer to the beach.
8.What is the last movie you saw?
I saw the movie Gravity last week and LOVED it!
9.If you could change anything about yourself what would it be?
Nothing,  I like me. :}
10.What’s your favorite spot in your house?
Besides the kitchen, I would say my bedroom. I love my bed and it soothes me.

  1. 30 pairs of shoes? That’s my kind of girl! 🙂

    I’ve always wanted to live in California! ALWAYS! Make some space for me because I’m on my way! 🙂

  2. Do chanclas count? I have plenty of those 🙂
    I would love to visit Califas one day <3

    I admire that you're good with yourself, I wish I could say there's nothing I would change. Internally I'm good but physically there's some flaws I'd remove if I could.

    • Yes Chanclas count…I have at least 12 of those. You have too in Cali. I do have flaws but I always think positive.

  3. Wow I would have to say you are so right with us ladies. Once you start having babies, the weight does fluctuate. My mom always told me to keep a few sizes up and down. Now I’m seeing why! 30 pairs of shoes sounds oh so reasonable lol. I love your recipes that you share. I am a wannabe Mexican chef. I try to make things randomly. Lately our favorite in our house are the black beans. Chipotle is a new favorite as well! 🙂

    • I’m just accepted the fact that my body is what it is. I guess I have an obsession with shoes. You can totally be a mexican chef. We love black beans too! Thanks for stopping by Brittnei.

  4. Thank you so much for being my partner, you answered those questions amazingly! (That a word, LOL?) I’ll come visit if you make me some Mexican food, mmmmm!!!

  5. I love how simple and straight forward your answers were! LOL! But I especially liked your response to #9, I don’t think I’ve EVER heard a woman say that and it’s a beautiful response that we should all have. . .but too too often we are our own worst critics. Good for you! Have a great Monday!

  6. If I had to pick a fashion thing for me, it would totally be shoes! LOL! I absolutely hate to clothes shop for the very same reason. I have to agree that anytime that I can spend time with the kids is the absolute best. Even if it is just hanging. Thanks so much for asking me to join Ask Away Friday, this has been so much fun! Hope you are having a great Monday!
