Go ahead, ask me anything!  Unfortunately, I’m only talking to Michelle from Dish of Daily Life.  She asked me to be her partner for this Friday’s #AskAwayFriday link up and I jumped at the chance.  I believe the exact exchange was:

Michelle:  Do you want to partner with me for Ask Away Friday?

Me:  Sure!!!  Um, what is it?

I will do anything that involves partnering with Michelle.  She’s an amazing writer, she’s super relevant, has great advice and has helped me get more “Likes” on FB, more followers on Twitter and Instagram and helped to streamline some of the inefficiencies I had as a newbie blogger.  She. Is. Awesome.  In fact, what the hell have I done for her?  Who cares…she has partnered with me and she can’t take it back now!


You can find her:

Pinning as Dish of Daily Life

Google+ as Michelle Nahom

And, believe me, you want to find her!  Plus, she will be answering the questions I asked her and you don’t want to miss that!

Now, onto the questions Michelle has asked me to answer:

1.  What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

Move across the country to Los Angeles all by myself when I was 22.  Obviously my mom had passed away by then because what mother would let their child do this?  My dad was not happy either but he taught me a great lesson of letting your kids follow their dreams – no matter how insane!  After graduating college, I moved out there all alone.  It was nuts but I ended up getting a great job, meeting amazing people and then I moved back home three years later.  It was one of the greatest experiences of my life.  Thanks Dad!

2. What Social Media outlet are you most addicted to and why?

This is a tough one but I have to say Facebook…or Twitter….ugh, ok I guess Facebook.  It’s like a 24 hour gossip channel.  Cray cray.

Mission accomplished my wealthy friend.

3.  What is your favorite thing about blogging?

Having random conversations with people who read my blog.  The other day, a really nice older gentlemen who works at my gym starting discussing my Boob Job post with me.  Awkward. The odd thing is that I put myself out here and then think people I know don’t read it!!  I’m always surprised when someone like that says “Oh, I read your blog!”  It makes me really happy…and then mortified!

4.  Favorite place you’ve ever lived?

In a shed on Cape Cod with one of my best friends in the world.  We lived in West Yarmouth together in the summer of 1996 when we were going into our senior year in college.  We rented what was literally a shed on a business property.  It had bunk beds, a couch, a TV, a small kitchen and an even smaller bathroom.  We worked at a pizza place during the day, went to the beach and partied all summer long.  We literally sat on the floor and cried when we had to leave to go back to school in September.  It was a completely carefree summer and we enjoyed every minute.

5.  What is a typical morning like for you?

Every morning involves each of the following in no particular order:  washing, brushing, eating, yelling, sweating, crying (usually the kids but not always), pleading, begging, reminding, more yelling, making, baking, kissing (usually the kids but not always), running/cycling, driving and typing!

6.  Team Droid or Team iPhone?

iPhone baby!!!  I love my iPhone…except when I want to smash it into little tiny bits.  Mostly, I love it.

7.  What is your proudest moment?

My proudest moment was delivering healthy twin boys at 37 weeks!  I never thought I would make it and I was terrified they would end up in the NICU.  Hearing them cry and seeing them for the first time was absolutely my proudest moment ever.  Had I been able to see four years into the future I would’ve tried to savor that a little more!

Little did I know, this was an easy age!

8.  If you had to give up running, what sport would you do instead?

Swimming.  It would be the most challenging for me and well, I love a good challenge!  I’m also assuming that if I’m not running something very bad has happened to my knees and/or entire lower half of my body and therefore, I can’t cycle either.

This is how I prefer my water.

9.  Who inspires you? 

Working moms…I mean ones with full-time, salary needing, wake-up early, go to bed late, Lean In kind of women!  Lean in a little extra for this SAHM will you please?…as if you don’t have enough to do.

10.  Favorite comfort food?

Is a cheeseburger with a fried egg and avocado considered “comfort food?”  If so, that’s what I want!

What’s your favorite question?  What’s your answer?
