Share Your World – A Little More About Me

I’m new to blogging.

Can you tell?  πŸ™‚

And right now, I’m only doing it part time.  I really WANT to do it more.  I so WISH I could do it full time!  But obviously I need to gain more experience and build a presence before I can take that giant leap.

Hopefully someday… sigh…

Well, in my research of How to Blog, I’ve discovered a few Link Parties.  I had wanted to wait until I had more content and felt that my blog was more established before I started giving those a try… 

But as I talked about in my recent Act of Kindness post, I am participating in a service challenge.  When I emailed the post to the blog author who had organized the challenge, she said I could add it to the Make a Difference Monday Link Up.  I was really nervous about it, but I took a deep breath, and decided to try it out!

And then I started to think, “Why am I waiting to try others link ups?!?”  I bet some of these other bloggers might have some really great advice on how to build and grow this blog.  It seems like bloggers like to help other bloggers!

So, I took another deep breath, and I joined the How Do You Do It Parenting Link Up.  It was from a post in that link up that I discovered Cee’s Photography Blog.

Each week, Cee asks 4 questions so we can “Share Our World” and help everyone get to know each other better.  It sounded like such a fun idea, I decided to give it a try.  It’s a great way to expand my “About Me” by sharing things I never would have thought about without these prompts!

And I would love to get to know YOU better too!  Who’s reading this?  Is anyone reading this?  Bueller?  Bueller?… πŸ™‚

If you’re out there, please leave your answers to these 4 questions in the comments section.  It’ll be fun! πŸ™‚

Well, here are my answers to this weeks Share Your World questions:

What are some words that just make you smile?
Oh gosh, apparently I have the humor of a 12-year-old, because the first words that came to mind were fart and balls.  I should probably be embarrassed for even writing that… πŸ™‚ - Maturity is when you can say pussy-willow with out giggling.

When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles or turn on the flashlight? How many of each do you own?
My mother-in-law actually just got me 2 emergency flashlights that don’t require battery power (you just shake them or something), and also 2 emergency lanterns for Christmas!  We haven’t had the power go out yet (knock on wood), but I used the lanterns during Earth Hour (which you can read more about by clicking here).
What is the longest book you ever read?
I love to read!  I used to be in 2 different book clubs, before we had kids.  I think the longest might have been The Pillars of the Earth  by Ken Follett .  Almost 1000 pages… yowza!  I also read A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1) by George R. R. Martin which is almost 900 pages I think.
So you win a pet monkey at a fair, but this isn’t just any old monkey. It can do one trick for you whenever you want from getting a pop out of the fridge to washing your hair. What would be the trick?
Cook all the meals for my family!  I’m just not a big fan of cooking, so monkey, please take over! πŸ™‚
Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for the time I was able to spend with my children, teaching them kindness (click here to read about it) and playing outside (Yay Spring!).  I’m looking forward to the possibility of going to a neighbors house for drinks this weekend.  I still need to find a babysitter though… eeek!
And there you have it! Don’t forget to share your answers in the comments!

Well, that’s just a little bit about Me… TODAY!

Nice to meet you, Sarah. Enjoyed getting to know a little about you. Sorry to hear you are a widow at such a young age. I look forward to getting to know you and those three little ones.

Sarah @

Thanks for your condolences. I've been browsing your blog, you have some great pics!

Yay! You started the challenge! <br />1. Candles<br />2. Tough one, Gone with the Wind, or there was one Elizabeth by Margaret George that I read that was absolutely enormous (but a great read)<br />3. That is going to be one busy monkey, cleaning my house all day!<br />4. I'm grateful for the fact that my daughter is finally getting a break from teething. Looking forward to my sisters

Ah yes, teething… My son has his first molar breaking through now… I'm glad your daughter (and you!) are getting a break from it! πŸ™‚


1. I also have the humor of a 12 year old because a word that makes me smile is farts.<br />2. I don't even know where a flashlight is – so hopefully my iPhone had power and I'd use the flashlight on that!<br />3. I have never read a really long book!!! I tried Gone With the Wind but I couldn't finish it.<br />4. Doing the entire laundry process: Sorting, Washing, Folding and putting

Sarah @

Thanks for reading both of my blogs! Can I ask how you found the other one? And thanks for the compliment about being a great mom. Today was one of those days I needed to hear something like that. Thanks again! πŸ™‚
