Friday Fellowship - Erika Slaughter

My Friday Fellowship today is Erika Slaughter. I have been reading her blog for several years.  She has the sweetest family and I feel like we would be good friends if we lived closer.  We actually have a friend in common - a girl in my Sunday School class was in her sorority in college.  We got to meet about two years ago at Dot Mom.  She's just a down to earth mom and you will enjoy meeting her if you don't already know her.  She has a fun blog all about her family you can keep up too! 

 Hi!  I'm Erika over at A Little Bit of Everything Blog.  I've been a Kelly's Korner fan for years, so I'm pumped to be visiting with you today.  :)

I'm a small-town Missouri girl turned suburban Texas wife and mom.  I'm a work-from-home mom who juggles a blog, planning amazing vacations for clients, skincare, and laundry all while carpooling from one activity to another.  And by far laundry is my toughest job.  Anyone else think so?

1.  What is your favorite Food?
My favorite food would be any kind of Mexican food.  Give me all the tacos, fajitas, enchiladas, guacamole, and queso.  YUM!

2.  What is your very favorite piece of clothing right now? 
My favorite fall/winter fashion piece has to be a vest.  I love how a vest gives you the cuteness of a layered look without any fuss.  Because throwing a vest on is easy.  Right?

3.  Tell us about your Family?
My husband, Tab, and I have been married for 11 years.  If you met us in real-life, Tab would be the really fun one.  I'm fun too, but I just can't compete.   We have three crazy kiddos...Ebby Lee is 7, Nixon is 6, and Bowen is 3.  Ebby Lee is all girl.  Think bows, dresses, and playing with dolls.  She is ME as a seven-year-old.  Nixon is the complete opposite and by that I mean ALL BOY!  He is constantly on the move with some kind of ball at all times. And he's probably Tab at age six.  :)   Bowen is our little ham who makes us all laugh.  By family and friends, he'd be voted Mr. Congeniality.  He's a fan favorite.  ha!

4.  What is the most important quality in your Friends? 
Oh my goodness!  I could go on and on about my amazing girl friends, but I'd say simply having each other's back is the most important quality.  I know without a doubt-through good times and bad-these ladies have my back and will be right by my side.  That's a great feeling.  :)

5.  What's something you have learned recently in your Faith journey?  
Love this quote by Jennie Allen!  I'm a big people-pleaser at heart and lately I've been learning more and more about what it looks like in my life to be pleasing God and not other people.  I want everyone to approve of anything and everything I'm doing, but I'm becoming more okay everyday with not caring who "gets it" as long as I'm obeying God.

"Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant." Galatians 1:10

6.  What is your biggest Fear?
Obviously, I could take this question to a much deeper place, but I thought I'd take it a little lighter.  Look at that picture!  EEK!!  Give me all the snakes, spiders, and bugs but just please don't give me a mouse.  I can't.  I just can't.  They ick me out like no other!

7.  What are some of your Favorite things right now?
A few of my favorite things right now...
*One Tree Hill-someone told me to watch on Netflix.  I listened and am seeing it through to the end-including all nine seasons.  I was talking to a friend recently about what is the target audience for this show?  I'm not sure.  But it's a guilty pleasure that I just can't quit right this second.
*Coffee-the fall weather (even though it hasn't fully hit Texas) makes me want all the coffee!
*Booties-this weather also makes me grab booties as my shoe of choice! 

8.  What has been your biggest Failure?
I know Kelly loves looking back at old pictures.  I'm keeping it real for your enjoyment!  I must say the biggest failure has to be those BANGS!

9.  What do you do for Fun?
For fun I like to hang with this crew.  We love a friendly game of two-hand touch football in the front yard, game nights, movie nights, dinner out.  We also enjoy traveling and have made some amazing memories on vacation.

10.  Tell me about what animals you have? (Furry)
We're not a pet family.  My kiddos have been asking for years and maybe one day.  Today just isn't the day.

11.  What is your favorite Film?
If I could only choose one, then I'd hands down choose Sweet Home Alabama as my favorite.

10.  What is one Fact we might not know about you?
I grew up in a TINY town in the country.  I graduated with eleven other people.  Yes, eleven!

Kelly...thank you SO much for having me!  It's been fun!  XOXO
