How old is your blog or long have you been blogging? I started my blog in November 2008 but I did not start blogging on a regular basis until March of 2009.
What made you choose the name of your blog? I was feeling a little uneasy about my upcoming 10-year high school reunion, and was telling my mother-in-law about my insecurities. I knew that the job I had, being a stay at home mom, was extremely important and meaningful, but I was afraid that since most of my high school class wasn’t even married yet, that they would not relate to me or that they’d think I didn’t make much with my life. My mother-in-law reminded me about all of the tasks I do on a daily basis, aside from just raising kids. She told me that I was, in fact, the CEO of my household. My blog was named after this realization, and I write about my life as a wife, mom, blogger and everything in between.
Why do you blog and what do you love about blogging? I started blogging as a way to let off steam. Typing has always been relaxing for me, and writing is something I have a deep love for. I thought combining the two could become a hobby. If anything, I could give myself a good laugh at the end of the day, even if it was at my own expense. Blogging has become so much more for me, though. It’s very therapeutic to write honestly about the ups and downs of life and have my followers read my thoughts and not only understand them, but share their stories with me so that I know I am not alone.
What are a few of your favorite posts on your blog? (include the direct URL links)
Are you married? If so, how long? Yes, I will be married to “DaddyMac” 7 years this March.
Do you have children? If so, how many? I have two children. My son, “Buckaroo,” is 5 ½, and my daughter, “Miss Mac,” turns 3 at the end of January.
What is your favorite movie? My husband makes such fun of me when I see a movie on the Guide on TV because I always say, “that’s one of my favorite movies!” He always laughs and says, “Really? How many do you have?” I really love so many, so I’ll have to give you my top 5: The American President, Legally Blonde, The Notebook, The Devil Wears Prada, and Old School.
Who is your favorite actor? Again, there are so many that I love. But my favorites are Reese Witherspoon, Kate Winslet, and Will Ferrell.
What is your favorite band or musician? BON JOVI is my all-time favorite (& I am going to see him on tour in May!), but I also love tons of country singers.
What is your favorite food? Real good pizza.
What is your favorite candy? York Peppermint Patties—I love the mini ones! They are only 1 point each on Weight Watchers. Sometimes I put them in the freezer & they last longer when they melt in your mouth.
What else should readers know about you? I think about becoming a comedian often. It’s not that I think I am funny, although I do know how to laugh and I know I’d personally provide myself with great material on a daily basis! But I think that most of all, I want to do stand-up for the rush of performing. I was a dancer for a very long time, and enjoyed the spotlight. If you think about it, in lots of ways blogging fills this desire to “perform”—my thoughts are my choreography, my posts are my performances, and my readers are my audience. But there’s something to be said about the rush you get from a live performance. Maybe I just need to start vlogging!
