It's Me today on Friday Fellowship

Well - since it's Black Friday and most of you are probably either shopping or with family and NOT reading here - I didn't want to post any of my friends I have lined up for Friday Fellowship because I don't want you to miss out on any of them. 

So I thought I would just answer my own questions for fun for the 7 of you who read here today. ha! 

1.  What is your favorite Food?

Tacos, chips/salsa/queso.  All day long.  I could eat that every single day until I died.  

A close second would be Greek food.  

2.  What is your very favorite piece of clothing right now? (FASHION)

If you know me - you know I love a good tunic.  And legging and boots.  That's pretty much my mom uniform these days.  I've been trying to wear more jeans and tops these days also.  

(Side note - if you are like me and are 40 plus and/or if you are a new momma - I have something interesting to share with you at the very bottom of this post.  Also if you have daughters who fit either of these categories or a friend or relative who you might be Christmas shopping for.)

3.  Tell us about your Family?

Well - this is not new news to you if you read here.  But I'm married to Scott.  We met on a blind date that my BFF Laurie set us up on (they are cousins).  We have been married 13 years this month. He is a "computer nerd" slash redneck.  He loves football and hunting.  We are COMPLETE opposites but to quote Jerry Maguire "he completes me".   Harper is our oldest daughter - she is almost 8.  She is full of joy and kind and tender hearted and makes me laugh every single day.  Hollis is 5 and a half.  She is smart and a little sassy and shy.  But she is a secret warrior.  Quiet but full of power.  She is going to be a force to reckon with. She is also the kindest big sister.  And Will Holden is 19 months and our surprise ending.  He is so much fun and keeps me on my toes.  He has a smile that is very hard to say no to.  I am just extremely blessed with my three children.  

4.  What is the most important quality in your Friends? OR tell us something that a Friend has done for you that you can't forget.  

I have so many great friends.  It's one of my best gifts.  My friends make me laugh so hard but also accept me for who I am.  They are encouraging and uplifting. I'm in a constant group text and it's just my love language.   I love my old friends who have known me through so many stages and are just comfortable and I love my new friends who challenge me.  I think something I will never get over is how good our friends were when Harper was in the hospital.  Almost 8 years later, I still get tears in my eyes when I think of how so many of them drove 4 hours round trip to visit us or did acts of kindness for us or just prayed for us.  

5.  What's something you have learned recently in your Faith journey?  And/or share your favorite scripture right now and why or your favorite Bible Study or book you have read recently.  

Oh boy - I could pause here and write books on everything I have learned about God even in the last few years.  I'm still learning.  Writing this blog has challenged me because so many of you have stretched me and asked questions and I've had to get out of some boxes in my thinking.  I think every new challenge or season of life brings new understanding and insight into who God is.  I have a lot of Bible Studies I have loved but I think more than anything - I just love to read the Bible.  Just take my time and soak in the scripture.  

6.  What is your biggest Fear?

My biggest fear is anything happening to my children.  I'm terrified of illness.  I'm not afraid of dying but I'm afraid of dying and leaving my children before they are grown.  I'm more scared to lose them but I also don't want to leave them.  I have to keep the "what ifs" at bay or they can take over my life and steal my joy.  

7.  What are some of your Favorite things right now?

I'm happy that its starting to be dark and cold.  Most people hate it but I love being home to snuggle.  I love to put on pj pants and watch TV late at night after everyone is in bed.  I love a clean house.  I love the show "This is Us".  I love worship music.  Even in the cold, snowy weather - I love a good coke Icee. ha! 

8.  What has been your biggest Failure?

I feel like I fail at a lot of stuff.  I'm not athletic so I never did sports.  I fail at motherhood daily.  If I'm being COMPLETELY honest - my biggest failure of late is just my weight and trying to lose but failing over and over.  

9.  What do you do for Fun?

On a rare happy day - I love to have a date with my husband.  I also love spending time with my girlfriends.  I love to be with people but I also am a homebody and just love to be home with my family.  

10.  Tell me about what animals you have? (Furry things)

We had Dawson our Bichon for 13 years and had to put him to sleep this summer.  My girls are BEGGING for another dog but I'm just not ready.  Maybe in a year.  I discovered that there is a breed that is a mix of my two absolute favorite breeds - Bichons and King Cavelier Spaniels.  They don't shed and they are so cute! So maybe one day............

11.  What is your favorite FILM? (movie) 

Steel Magnolias.  I could watch it over and over and over.  And I have.  I just love good old romantic comedies - You have mail, Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry met Sally. So basically anything with Meg Ryan.  

12.  What is one Fact we might not know about you?

 I have been in four TV commercials: for a boat company, for a bank, for a TV station and for an OB-GYN clinic.  


Okay - so what I mentioned above - there is a great team who has created a tutorial for women who are 40 plus and need some help dressing and with style.  (That would be me).  And there is also one for new mommas.  Because your body changes and it can be a challenge to dress not only for your new shape but also your new life.  Let's just say there can be some wardrobe malfunctions when you are toting a baby and a diaper bag and especially if you are nursing. ha! And maybe you are like me and are 40 plus AND a new mom - you might want both!  I have gone through both and they have a lot of great advice and assessments for you to work with what's currently in your closet and helps you make good choices on what to buy.  If you are interested - use the code KELLYSKORNER and get 60% off today through Monday and 25% off after that.  Buy now and then you can do it whenever you have time.
