It’s Friday, and time to shed the spotlight on another great mom. This week’s mom is Rebecca, a fellow mom blogger who is quickly becoming one of my favorite twitter friends. We’re across the country, and yet I know that if we were closer, we’d hang out. I love finding “friends” all over the country. Connecting to others is a powerful thing….we learn, we grow, we accept differences and find commonalities. We are all in this together as mothers. I hope you will all check out Rebecca’s blog over at : Confessions of a Reluctant Housewife She is honest, witty, and worth checking out! Show her some love this week!
Now, sit back, relax, grab a cup of coffee (or in my and Rebecca’s case, a nice can of Diet Coke) and get to know a new mom!

Aside from my kids, I am PASSIONATE about: Jesus. Brad. People in general.Parenting. Blogging.
If I had a whole day all to myself, I would: Probably feel like I was missing something all day (Zoe). As I’m
thinking about this I realize the answer has changed. My standard answer would be to pack my calendar for
the day, book myself friend dates back to back and then maybe a pedicure. Now, I would probably try to

wonderful date night with Brad.

The after effects of this pregnancy need to GO!
The best piece of advice I ever received was: “Love God, love others, do whatever you want”
It’s the worst when they’re little and sick and can’t tell you what’s wrong! Thanks for sharing these…I think it’s so fun to see peeks into other mom’s lives.
