One Word that Describes You: hmmm. This is hard! not-so-super-mom? naturally-blonde? totally-awesome? sparkle-skirt-wearing? hot-gun-challenged? wannabe-triathlete? cupcake-baker-extraordinaire? snowboarding-snowmama? dr.pepper-lipsmacker-lover?
What makes you smile? Racing in my sparkle skirt.
What is one of your dreams you hope to accomplish soon? Complete a 1/2 Ironman & one day qualify (& run) the Boston Marathon
One of Your favorite motherhood moments? Watching my kids fall in love with my favorite hobbies. It’s like discovering snowboarding, bike riding, running, traveling & Disneyland all over again – just through their eyes.
What is your guilty pleasure? A LARGE cup, filled to the rim with crushed ice, topped off with a little Cherry Coke or Dr. Pepper. Or, Disneyland on a slow day.
What do you love most about you?I don’t believe in words like impossible or can’t.
Favorite Hobby? It’s impossible to pick just one hobby. I’m a self-described cherry coke drinking, crushed ice loving, world-traveling, bike riding, apron wearing, snowboarding, fabric obsessed, marathon training, sparkle skirt wearing, surprisingly shy triathlete, Disneyland loving, REAL orange county housewife & mama of 3, with ADD crafting tendencies & an MBA degree… definitely a “renaissance woman” wouldn’t you say?
Who is your hero?My Mom. She is my confidant, my mentor, my biggest fan, my best friend & most definitely “an angel among us.”
When you wrote your Post “New Year’s Resolute-Nots” a Few weeks ago you mentioned one of them was, “i will not pretend i’m supermom.” Why do you think that is an important resolute “not” for you and might be for other moms too?
We make each other strong
We’re not the same
We’re different in a good way
Together’s where we belongWe’re all in this together
Once we know
That we are
We’re all stars
And we see that
We’re all in this together
