Who Are You?

Happy Tuesday!  Is this week over?  I have so much going on that I can't hardly breathe.  Well, that's a lie because I can breathe, but between planning a golf tournament, 1/2 marathon training, work and life in general, I'm brain dead today.

So, I'm stealing this little idea from my friend and fellow doxie mom, Tamara at T Times Three.

I get on here and tell you all about the lives of the Smithwick's, but now I want you to tell me about you! Don't be shy.  This will be painless and fun!  Here's what I want to know:

Who are you?  

Do you blog, too? Leave me your link!  I want to follow you!

Do you remember how you found my blog? A link-up? Another blog?

How long have you been reading?

What keeps you coming back to my blog?
 
What would you like to see me blog about more?

What is something we have in common?

Tell me a fun fact about yourself!
 
If you don't feel like answering all of them, don't.  Just leave me a happy note letting me know who you are!  I can't wait to hear from all of you.

You'll get some awesome comments through this! I found out yesterday that one of my readers is from my hometown and went to my high school years before I did... how crazy is that?

And I look forward to reading your blog every day! You are so real and blog about all of life's ups and downs! Plus, you motivate me with all of your running posts!

I am Rachel from VA. I blog over at Romancing Rachel (romancingrachel.blogspot.com) I've been blogging since college but have had that blog since 2008. I blog about work, my upcoming Navy enlistment, the men I dated (though now it's just my fiance!) and whatever random things pop into my head at any given point in time.

I have no idea how I found your blog! When I was first looking for blogs to read I'd go through the list of what other people followed and any blog that kept my interest for more than 3 entries was added to my list. That's probably how I found you! I like that you're honest and down to earth. it's what keeps me coming back. Plus I love reading about other runners!

Hi Im Neely, pretty sure you read my blog. I have been reading yours as long as I can remember. I think I found it through top 2 Tuesday back in 09!!! Or maybe early 2010 ? I love reading about your journey on becoming parents. I also love reading about your travels and I feel like we have very similar tastes in almost everything. I have no fun facts ;-) OK I am double jointed in both arms ....see not very fun.

Shari said...

Wow you do sound busy! What a fun little quiz. I think the question that has me stumped the most is how did I find your blog? I think it was through Taylor's Top 2 Tuesday (way back in the day). So glad I did friend! :)

Tami said...

I did something similar a few months back and it was so neat to "meet" some of my readers! :)

I'm Tami and I blog at www.littlemomentslikethis.com.

I think I found your blog through another blog and I have probably been reading for about 2 years now, though I'm not the best commenter.

I love reading your adoption story and I think it's so neat that you are sharing so many of the details with us. I can't wait for the day that you announce that you and Fred have a baby in your arms.

Megan Brink said...

Who are you?

My name is Megan, and I'm a twenty something TTC'er (gotta love infertility issues!) who blogs about all things TTC/along with my adventures on marriage and family.


Do you blog, too? Leave me your link! I want to follow you!

Love to blog! abrinkadventure.blogspot.com is where you can find me.


Do you remember how you found my blog? A link-up? Another blog?

Another blog! I'm always happy to follow other blogs regarding their journey on TTC/adoption.


How long have you been reading?

Just started today! :)

What keeps you coming back to my blog?

Always looking for others who have experienced what I'm going through. Its nice to have a support system.

What would you like to see me blog about more?

Just your overall journey!

What is something we have in common?

We both want a baby to complete our family.


Tell me a fun fact about yourself!

I have three insanely little fur babies which run my house and my heart. I also have a rather tall husband who is nearly 6'11!

Kelsey said...

Hi my name is Kelsey! I am in my late 20's just living day to day as a medical residents wife.

I do not blog but love to read them. Who knows, I may just start a blog one day!

I found your blog through another blog. I am not sure which one but it may have been a link up and I saw you lived in Memphis. My husband and I had just moved to the area for him to finish up medical school and we are currently still living here for his Radiology residency.

I think I have been reading for several years!

I love everything about your blog! I like the recipe posts, fashion inspiration, and workout motivation!

A few things we have in common.......married, age group, loves dogs, fashion, shopping, working out and food! :)



Emily said...

Hi, I'm Emily - I live in Indianapolis, I blog here (www.emilysadventures.com), and I'm a wife and a Mom.

I think I found you via Top 2 Tuesday back in 2010 and have been following you ever since.How long have you been reading?

I keep coming back for inspiration and to find out about your journey to parent hood!

I love your fashion posts about the stars after an awards show, and I think you've got a great eye for that, so more fashion posts!

You helped inspire me to become a runner, so I guess that's what we have in common. Oh, also our journeys with fertility.

I cannot think of a single fun fact, I'll have to ponder that some more.

This was fun! I might steal it from you! Have a great day!

Kristen Ostow said...

Hey girl! My name is Kristen, I'm a wife, a dog mommy, and I blog at chiclittlebits.blogspot.com

I'm not really sure how I came across your blog but I've always loved reading your posts because they are so down to Earth.(and I have always loved the design of your blog)

We have in common that we are both wives, dog lovers, and aspire to be mommies! I keep coming back to the blog to read about your adoption and to see how it is going. I've said a few prayers along the way because I can tell you would make a great mom!

I just opened a children's boutique on Etsy called Chic Little Bits(chiclittlebits.etsy.com) and I also work for a mortgage company. I hope one day the boutique takes off so I can focus on it full time. I'm trying to gain followers, so any advice you have for new bloggers would be great to read!

Cute idea!

Jorden and Kristin said...

I'm Kristin

I blog at www.jordenandkristin.com

No, I can't remember. I think it was through a blog linkup but I can't say for sure.

At least 2 years probably longer.

You always have positive posts, and right now I love following your adoption story since we are planning to start our adoption process next summer.

I love your running posts. They keep me motivated! I can't think of anything that I'd like to see more of. Just am waiting for your post when you announce that you have a baby! :)

Running, a heart for adoption :)

I've worked at an orphanage in India, I have lived in Africa and been to most of the continents.

Casey said...

I like to leave you comments every once in a while...so you may kind of know me! :)I blog over at We Took the Road Less Traveled {http://keepingupwiththecotes.blogspot.com}. I really can't remember how I found your blog, but I've been following for quite some time now! I keep coming back 1) because you also have a weenie (and I've got one too!) 2) I love reading about your journey to adopting a baby...it's so inspiring and interesting to learn about and 3) I wanna be a kick ass runner like you one day! You motivate me to keep pounding the pavement, even when the couch looks so much more appealing. :)

Something we have in common? We both are IN LOVE with our mini doxies, traveling, and God. Probably soul sisters, I think. :) And a fun fact about me? I have a younger sister who looks almost identical to me. Everyone thinks we're twins, but we're almost 4 years apart in age.

By the way, this is so fun! I might have to "steal" it from you and Tamara!

Britt said...

This is a great idea!

I am Britt over at www.truebritt.blogspot.com. I think you follow me or at least have commented a few times here and there:) I think I found your blog through twitter.

Let's see, I started reading your blog about 6 months ago from other blogs. I love your journey from running and trying pure barre and now your adventure to being a Mommy!

I live in NC where I'm born and raised (and raising MY two kids) with my husband and spoiled yorkie, Tucker.

I love coffee, red wine, movie popcorn with lots of butter. I will take that or dips and chips over chocolate anyway for my guilty pleasure! Love being inspired to be healthy and I'm a Mon to a 1 and 3 year old. I've always been a martini girl and I love to laugh although I'm shy too :)

Love your blog and I usually don't comment but figured this was a great chance to! I only wish I could remember how I found you. Maybe you posted a bikini body challenge?

Hi! I'm Mindy @ mindysmoments.blogspot.com

I don't remember exactly how I found your blog, I know it was from another blog though. I've been reading for about a year I would guess? At first I kept coming back because we share the love of our dachshund children, but then I just grew to love you :-)

There's nothing in particular I would like to see you blog more about, I think you have a great mix of everything!

Something we both have in common? Our aforementioned dachshund babies!

A fun fact? Hmm..I was born and raised in Texas? (Sorry, I'm terrible with fun facts about myself!)
