"I am a mother and a wife. I have two beautiful daughters whom I get the great privilege to be home with during my days. I am a self-proclaimed craft-a-holic. I have tried everything and loved everything I've tried that helps me "create". I love to read, cook, sew, quilt, and I love sharing all of these passions with my daughters. I try to bake or cook with them at least once per week. I have been married for 10 years to the most incredible man a woman can find. We are perfect mates and he has been such a great supporter of all of my "hobbies". I have an extremely close relationship with my family and it is one of the dearest gifts in my life. I have been blogging for just a little over a year and have become much more active in my blogging efforts over the past few months. I am on the board for my local MOMS Club and I am involved in a leadership role in my MOPS group as well. I teach Sunday School class to our toddlers at my church and love bringing the Word to these young children."
Describe yourself in 5 words - Blessed, Intuitive, Passionate, Engaging, Genuine
Why did you begin blogging? - I began blogging because I love writing and reading as well as sharing bits about myself with anyone who is interested. I love it when I find a great blogger who provides me with tidbits that I can use in my daily life as a mom and wife and I wanted to and hoped that my writing would prove to be a way for me to give back what I have been blessed with in my life.
What is your all-time absolute favourite food? I'll have to say my absolute favorite food is Strawberry Shortcake (I have always loved it even when I was a child) and I have perfected a recipe for the shortcake part of the Strawberry Shortcake that is fabulous. Definitely my favorite!
If you had $1000 to spend on anything in the world, what would you spend it on? If I had $1000 to spend I would purchase a new sewing machine (mine is a nice machine but it's my grandma's and I would love to have a newer model as my primary machine and this one as my backup) If I had anything left after that, I would stock up on fabric, thread, and other sewing notions.
What was the last book you read? The last book I read was The Hunger Games and I'm in the midst of reading the second book in the series, Catching Fire
If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. with whom would it be? It's hard because I would trade places with one of my daughters for sure but I can't think which one. I have a 6 year old and a 3 year old and I would love to trade places with one of them to get their perspective on my own skills as a mother. What a better way to learn, than to be the child you are raising. I think that would prove to be an invaluable experience.
If your life could have a theme song, what would it be and why?
I think the theme song for my life would be one of these two:
"You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban just because the lyrics and the emotion are so powerful in my life and that I would be nothing, have nothing if it were not for His grace.
the other would be:
"You're Gonna Miss This" by Trace Adkins because everyday I work to appreciate all that I have in my husband and children, to have the patience to thank God for my blessings rather than complain about my troubles. I know what a treasure this life is and everyday, I look for the beauty around me and the joy in my children's eyes.
Victoria is the owner of Mommy Made It and an absolute inspiration of a woman!
By the way, "You're Gonna Miss This" is such a beautiful song that I've included it here. It actually bought a tear to my eye, it should be the inspiration for us all to appreciate what we have.
