It’s time to link up for the latest edition of Blogger Friends Diaries.
For today’s post, it’s time to introduce you to someone special to me. My husband. He was getting a little jealous that I haven’t asked him yet. So without further ado, let me introduce you to my husband, Darryl! Take it away Darryl!

1.| If you have a specific ringtone for your blogger, what is it? If you don’t have one, what would it be if you did?
I have one of the iPhone ringtones for her. If I had to pick a song, it would be “Save Tonight” by Eagle Eye Cherry. 
*His ringtone is Cannan Smith “Love You Like That”* 
2.| What is something the two of you enjoy doing together? 

My favorite thing to do is lay on the couch and watch tv together. The days where we do absolutely nothing are the best. 

*Or when he let’s me talk about books.*

3.| What is your favorite post of hers that she has ever written? 

My favorite post of hers is the one where she talks about the miscarriages. It took a lot of courage for her to admit it to anyone even herself and when I saw that post, I couldn’t be prouder of her. 

*Weird, that is my favorite post too.  It was one of my scariest posts to write.*

4.| How much time do you think your blogger puts into blogging each week?

Not as much as she would like. She is so busy with work and coaching soccer that sometimes her blog gets put to the side. 

*Sorry about that guys. I’m trying to be better.*


There is a glimpse of my husband. Thanks for stopping by Darryl!
Now don’t forget to link-up here or over at Kelly’s blog! Can’t wait to get to know you and your bestie!

The week before the link up goes live Kelly and I will post the questions. There will be 3-5 questions for your bestie to answer. Our goal isn’t to break up friendships but to get to know the person behind the blog. These questions could be anything from how you met to what’s her biggest fear or more drama filled ones like what’s her worst quality. We know that you want to include your own commentary but please use your bestie’s exact answers. You don’t have to use the same friend every month. Or even one friend. We just want to get to know you!

1.| If you have a specific ringtone for your blogger, what is it? If you don’t have one, what would it be if you did?

Blogger Friends Diaries

Happy Wednesday aka Blogger Friend Diaries linkup day. 
For a little recap. We want to get to know the person behind the blog, from someone who knows you the best. Your BFF. Each month we will give you a series of questions that your BFF answers about you. It doesn’t have to be the same friend each month. Just someone that can give us the juicy details. We all caught up? Good.
Let’s get this party started. My BFF Cortney is back for another edition of Blogger friends diaries.  (To see what she said about me last time, check it out here)

cortney

This is my best friend Cortney. We met when we were in second grade.  Let’s see what she has to say about me this month. 

1.) What is something they do that drives you crazy?
-Always posting about sports on Facebook. Lol. I know she’s loves all things Seattle sports related (Sounders, Seahawks, Mariners), but I don’t always need a play by play of every game.  (If you were on my twitter yesterday, you might have noticed this. Sorry but not sorry)
2.) Which movie/TV friendship are you?
-Rory Gilmore (me) and Lane Kim (Jennifer) from Gilmore Girls. I feel like I was always more serious and focused, while she has always been more free spirited and fun. (See this is one of the reasons I love her, Gilmore Girls is my favorite show)
3.)  Who would you pick to play each of you in a movie about your friendship?
-Hmmm, I think I would be played by Anna Kendrick, and Jennifer would be played by Hayden Panettiere. (I am a-okay with that. I love both of them)
4.) What is your favorite memory with your blogger?
– My favorite memory with Jennifer is probably…spending a week at her house in the summer when we were probably 15/16 (?), watching Coyote Ugly for the 10th time, playing Disney Scene-It and secretly inviting boys over the hang out. Oh, and passing around our stuffed lizard named JAC. (Those were some fun times….until I got in trouble)
5.) What is her best quality?
– Jennifer’s best quality is her genuineness. She has always been exactly who she is without being fake or pretending to be something she’s not. I always know that she will be honest and real with me no matter what.

Can’t wait to see what your BFF says about you. Link up here or at Love, Kelly  Lorene

Update & Blogger Friend Diaries Questions

Memorial Day Weekend 2015: Oregon Coast

Hey Guys!
I’m back! I know it’s been a while since I have been here so it’s time for a quick update. 

I started a short term work contract back in April. It was suppose to lead to full time but instead I’m currently unemployed. For circumstances outside of my control, my contracted ended a little bit ago. 
I’m enjoying my time with Stella and figuring out what to do. I’m in the process of getting into a new routine so bare with me. I will figure something else out! Which leads me to the rest of today’s post!

Blog Friends Diaries

Photobucket

The day is finally here! Kelly and I have been anxiously waiting for this day. It’s time for the first ever #blogfriends diaries link up.

For a little recap. We want to get to know the person behind the blog, from someone who knows you the best. Your BFF. Each month we will give you a series of questions that your BFF answers about you. It doesn’t have to be the same friend each month. Just someone that can give us the juicy details. We all caught up? Good.

With out further ado, let me introduce you to my BFF, Cortney.

That would be her, sitting with me on my wedding day. 

We have been best friends for a long time. She is by far one of the greatest people I know. Through all the awkward clothes phase of middle schools, the heartaches of high school relationships, and to stand by me on my wedding day, she has been there through it all. Read on for her thoughts about me.


1 | Give us your backstory. How did you and your blogger meet?
Jennifer and I met in second grade when my family moved into Orting. It was just after spring break, and I was really nervous about starting in a new school. I tend to be pretty shy, and it was even worse back then. Jennifer, on the other hand, was not shy at all. She welcomed me in the class, asked me to play, and we have been friends ever since. Even after I move away in 5th grade, and then we both went away to college, our friendship has always been there.
 
2 | Share your favorite picture of the two of you 
Displaying IMG_0300.JPG
 This would be the two of us on her wedding day. 
 
3 | What keeps your friendship going?
Effort, dedication, unconditional support. You don’t make it to nearly twenty years of friendship without working for it. We have both been through so much, and we have grown and changed together. There are times when we don’t talk much, and times when we talk a lot; We have gone years without actually see each other in person. But through it all, we have made the effort to include each other in our lives, and to accept the people we have grown up to be; and when we are together, it’s as if we are just picking up where we left off. 
 
4 | Describe your blogger in one word.
Fun-sized :p. haha, but seriously…. Genuine.
 
5 | Describe your friendship in a song.

Blogger Friend Diaries

Photobucket

 

 Howdy Folks!

Today’s  post is an exciting. This is a little idea that Kelly  and I thought about while having too much wine. 

A little background about this idea.

Have you ever noticed that there are plenty of link ups for your spouse to do. But what about all those single ladies (or in my case, the gal with a guy who doesn’t want to show his face on the blog). One day, Kelly texted me about a best friends link-up idea and in my wine drinking state, I said yes! Lo and behold, the blogger friend diaries was born.


Now for the details involved with this link-up.

The second Wednesday of the month here and at Love, Kelly Lorene your real life bestie, cousin, sister, neighbor anyone who knows you the best gets to give us all the  juicy details. 

The week before the link up goes live Kelly and I will post the questions. There will be 3-5 questions for your bestie to answer. Our goal isn’t to break up friendships but to get to know the person behind the blog. These questions could be anything from how you met to what’s her biggest fear or more drama filled ones like what’s her worst quality. We know that you want to include your own commentary but please use your bestie’s exact answers. You don’t have to use the same friend every month. Or even one friend. We just want to get to know you!

Our first linkup will be Wednesday May 13. Here are the first set of questions.

1 | Give us your backstory. How did you and your blogger meet?

2 | Share your favorite picture of the two of you.

3 | What keeps your friendship going?

4 | Describe your blogger in one word.

5 | Describe your friendship in a song.


Please share this post with your friends and use #BlogFriendDiaries. Can’t wait to read everyone’s posts!
