Getting to know you: Texas Woman Bloggers

Welcome to my little corner of the internet ya'll!

I'm linking up for the getting to know you link up with the Texas Women Bloggers so we can get to know each other a little more Q&A style. To start with this is my sweet, crazy little family.

Getting to Know You Link Party with the Texas Women Bloggers

1. What part of Texas do you call home?
Home for us is South Texas. The Texas Women Bloggers puts us in the South Texas Plains. To be exact San Antonio is where we've called home for the past 6 years. We love it here and I don't see us from from it any time soon even though Louisiana might also be my first home we are very happy here.

2. How long have you been blogging?
I started blogging back when my oldest was 6 months so I've been blogging for 6 1/2 years now since she just turned 7. 

3. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging to supply out of town family with pictures of the very first grandbaby. I discovered I was pretty awful at keeping my oldest's baby book up to date (and she was only 6 months old!) so I figured if I could blog it I'd at least have a record to look back on. So far that's worked out very nicely and I plan on taking those posts and making them into a book at some point. 

4. When we visit your blog, what can we expect to discover?
Let's see-  a little bit of a lot of things - chaos? Ha! I blog about the kids a lot, some baking, crafts, different adventures around the city and a tiny bit of a lot of other stuff. 

5. How did you come up with your Blog Title and what is its meaning?
This blog started out as just being about my daughter. As we added more kids to our family, I had to come up with a new name since it wasn't all about her anymore. By that point we were in Texas and it was football season and we were missing our LSU Tigers so that's how I came up with Texas Tigers. LSU Tiger fans living in Texas.

6. What do you love about being part of Texas Women Bloggers?
I love connecting with all the amazing women that are part of this network and it's great that even though Texas is huge with all the blog conferences, events ect. that happen around Texas it's not unlikely that maybe one day I could meet some of ya'll. 

7. Who inspires you to blog?
Keeping up with the events I don't want to forget when my kids are older is what keeps me blogging. We've also got an awesome, creative, talented group of San Antonio bloggers that inspire me with all the amazing things they are doing blog-wise. It's incredible to have such local talent to learn from and the friendships from that group are fabulous as well.

8. If you could pick a favorite blog post from this past year, what would it be?
Let's see I'm still loving the pictures I took of my kids at my Aunt's wedding with the baby goat. (You aren't crazy you read that right - there was a goat at the reception) I also love that I was able to remember and successfully document my littlest first 12 months as she grew so I love her 12 month recap with all the pictures of her first 12 months.  I also love how her cookies and milk party came out. All that to say it's nearly impossible to pick a favorite post. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to get to meet ya'll as well!

I know I would forget all kinds of things from my kids' childhood if I didn't have my blog! It's been great for me to document things. Happy Thursday!

Wow! You are what I call a long-hauler in the blog world. :) So cool that you've been blogging this long. I bet you have some great memories stored in your digital pages! :) Your wish will be coming true next fall as the TXWB will be hosting its very first conference! :) Thanks so much for linking up with us!

I know I'll never get around to making a baby book for my son, so my blog has kind of turned into that, too...lol

Your kids are super cute, and I LOVE the cookies and milk party idea! I may have to borrow it someday. :)
