Musings of a Manic Mama

1. Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a high strung, laid back, Type A, fly by the seat of my 
meticulously planned pants stay at home mom.
I am a walking contradiction and I'm a lil bit crazy.
I married my kindergarten sweetheart almost 6 years ago (on our 5th anniversary) 
and together we made the 2 most amazing little men on the planet.


2. What is your favorite Lazy Day routine?

That's it. Just quiet.
With 2 boys, there is never a lazy day. Or any quiet.
I love them to bits but I would love a quiet day full of sunshine and quiet, a good book and a stiff drink.
3. Why/how did you get started blogging?

It just kind of happened.
A friend of mine started a blog and suggested I think about starting a blog, too.
So I did.
4.What is your favorite "Lose Yourself" 

book of the moment?
I'm very short on reading time these days. 
I'm lucky to sneak in a few moments before bed each night.
I recently finished the Dragon Tattoo series. 
It was a tough start but after the first 100 pages or so, I was sucked in for good.
I also really loved Tucker Max's books. His stories are freaking hilarious!  But don't read them in public.
You will literally laugh out loud and people will look at you funny.
Currently I'm reading The Hunger Games and diggin' it so far!
5. How did you come up with the name of your blog?
I was lying in bed trying to come up with a name.
Musings of a Manic Mama was the best I came up with.
I don't love it but I'm scared to change it.
And it's not like I can think of anything better.

6. What is you favorite movie of the moment?

Good question.
I don't watch a lot of movies. 
And not in the regular 'I don't watch a lot of movies' kind of way.
I've never seen Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter or the prequel-shmequel Star Wars flicks.
And I JUST saw The Notebook for the first time this year.
I know!
7. What is your favorite thing to blog?
The hilarious things Kadyn says.
That kid is a verbal gem.
8. What is your top "sing&dance your heart out" song of the moment?
I'm in a very weird place right now, musically.
I love me some old school KOL. I'm really into strong female singers lately - 
Tegan & Sara, Adele, Florence & the Machine, Metric….
I'm also looking for some new music. I recently bought the new Royal Wood album after seeing them on the CBC Kids Morning Show - what a place to find new music! Ha!
9. Link the top 3 favorite blogs you wrote, & tell us what was behind your writing them.

I don't want to sound pompous but if you read them (and I hope you will because all 3 are very dear to my heart) the meaning behind them is pretty obvious.

10. Who/what do you want to be when you
"Grow up"?

So many things. I'd love to be a photographer. 
Or a professional writer or an interior designer or an event planner. 
Or a crafter. Or an artist.
I've been trying to figure out how to combine all of them into 
one giant superhuman super job. So far? No luck.
11. Link the top 3 blogs you read.
Your "Daily Must Checks"

 Honestly there isn't anything that I MUST CHECK EVERY DAY.
I read what I can, when I can. And I'm somewhat of a fickle reader sometimes. :(
A few of my favs:

Ot & Et

The Martha Project


Baby Baby Lemon

Adventures in Estrogen

Adventures in Estrogen

Just By Living

12. Describe/show your top "Can't live without" Item
My family.
Admittedly I am pretty attached to my 'stuff.' I'm not materialistic but it is very important that I have my space in the world with my things - things that make me feel comfortable or remind me of people, places or things. I am extremely sentimental and I'm the queen of attaching emotions and memories to inanimate objects.
That being said the only thing that I truly could not live without is my family.
I know. Super cheese. But it's true.

13. Whats your favorite time of the year? 
Summer. Without question.

14. What is something you would like 

to try in the future of your blog?
Renaming, redesigning, moving the heck OFF Blogger, monetizing...
There are actually quite a few things I want to try but I don't have the time,
 the patience, the skill, the hardcore desire, etc….
I'd love to be one of those uber successful bloggers who can support her family
 with the money she makes blogging but the honest to goodness truth is
 that I am happy to do nothing more than record our daily family life.
I'm trying to not take the whole thing too seriously 
and just do what I love and what feels right for me.
15. If you could have any superpower, 

What would it be & why?
I would have the superpower that could morph into whatever superpower I wanted, whenever I wanted.

16. If you could re-live any moment in your life,
when & why?
I would re-live 3 moments in my life:

1. My wedding - I would scrap everything except my dress and Ryan's suit and we would run off somewhere hot and tropical and get hitched ALONE.

2 & 3. The first few months of my boys' lives. I adore my boys each and every day but those first few months? Heaven on earth.

Isn't she awesome??? I swear, I just LOVE this girl!!
