Introduce Yo' Self!

I am happy to see more and more followers recently and to be getting so many comments from new people! I try to make it to all of your blogs but people slip under the radar sometimes so I want to give you the chance to introduce yourselves! So here's a quick questionnaire to answer and then leave a link to your blog and I will come by! Also, go check out some other blogs and make friends! :] And please introduce yourself whether or not I have come to your blog! I always love learning more about other bloggers and making friends! And if your email isn't unblocked for me to respond to your comments you should check out these tips for figuring that out over on Gentri's blog!

Now answer away!!

1. What is your blog about and how long have you been blogging?
2. What is your favorite book?
3. What is your favorite lunch sandwich? {I may be using this to get ideas because I'm bored with my normal choices...}
4. What is your favorite DIYproject/recipe/hairstyle/etc. that you have tried from Pinterest? {If you haven't done one what is one you want to do? And if you aren't on Pinterest leave your email and I'll send you an invite! It's fun stuff!}
5. What is your favorite blog post that YOU have ever written?

Now I'll answer these questions and leave you with a picture of 'le bump' for good measure!

1. My blog is about my life with Race and our future little one. I try to write about all the little joys in our lives.
2. This is a hard one but one of my favorite books is a true story called Hannah's Gift.
3. My favorite lunch sandwich is peanut butter with honey and bananas!
4. My favorite Pinterest recreation would probably be these headbands that I made a TON of!I need to find a  more spring/summer appropriate recreation to do soon though!
5. This is also a hard one...good luck to all of you! I think that one of my favorite posts is...Somewhere Over the Rainbow  where I wrote about some of my hopes and dreams for my future with Race. It's fun to look and see  how much closer we are to reaching some of those goals/dreams!

Le Bump as of Sunday: 

I'm excited to get to know all of you! :]
And give me a few days to get to all of your blogs! But I will be coming by for sure!!

  2. 1. I have been blogging since 7th grade (but not on here). My blog is just about my life and writing out how I feel sometimes.

    2. Frankenstein

    3. Subway $5 footlongs. Specifically: chicken teriyaki :)

    5. My favorite post I have written is this one: http://mrsautumn.blogspot.com/2011/09/today-i-turned-23.html

    One of my biggest fears about getting married was that I would be very limited. I have never been, infact, for the first time my confidence is big enough that I can do everything I want :)

    5. I dont really have one yet.. I hope to write one soon!!

    Ps. this was such an AMAZING idea!!

  4. I'm not a new reader, but you know I love Q&As!!
    1. My blog is about my simple life with hubby and little fetus. My updates are sparatic at best, but I've been blogging for a little over 4 years. (but aaronarinelson.blogspot.com has only been in production since January 2011)

    2. My favorite book (series) is The Chronicles of Narnia. And for those who DON'T know, the PROPER way to read them is this order: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, The Horse and His Boy, The Magician's Nephew, The Last Battle.

    3. Lunch sandwiches ARE so boring! But lately Aaron and I have been getting free baguettes from church (someone works at a grocery store and brings the expired ones from the week) so I make subs with those :)

    4. My favorite Pinterest DIY is a wavy hairstyle done by braiding wet hair and letting it dry overnight.

    5. Favorite blog post. Hmm... I'll have to get back with you on that.

    FUN POST, Emma! :) And I loved your linky to Somewhere Over the Rainbow... I re-read it and it IS crazy how we accomplish so many dreams just by going through life :)

    P.S. Live temple sessions are a REALLY neat expirience!

  5. love the bump pics. it makes me miss mine but in the same breath glad i'm done too. i was truely obsessed with my belly when pregnant with my first!

  6. 1. I blog with my bestie Rebekah (Bekah) and we blog about modest fashion and events in our everyday lives. I've been blogging for about 2 months now.
    2. I hate reading and I haven't read a lot of books but I am reading the Alchemist and it's pretty good.
    3. Naan bread, turkey/chicken, mozzarella cheese, roasted red peppers, mayo and spinach = awesome sandwich.
    4. Braided headband. I love this hairstyle and it's super easy, basically braid a hair section where you would put a headband, flip and pin. Repeat on the other side and then you get a braided headband.
    5. Probably the post about my review on Elf Cosmetics, you can find it under 'a day'. I love makeup and learning about it, I enjoy writing reviews.

    Really enjoyed this! ;)

  7. peanut butter and honey.

    few things in life are as good.

  8. 1.I blog about my life with the husband and pretty much anything that is floating around my head and have been doing so for 18 months--as though it has been that long!

    2. Favourite book--hmm this is so tough, I want to say the Harry Potter series because they have been such a big part of my life.

    3. Favourite sandwish has to be salami and salad and salad cream, I have it all the time. I love salami.

    4. i have never actually got round to doing one how bad is that. But I want to make so many of the recipes, there was this amazing cake, yum!

    5. And I have no clue--I like my more recent posts since the beginning of this year as I really feel like I have found my feet more and found my voice--took me long enough :)

  9. loved all your answers! and that's a good idea to write down all your goals and dreams so that you can look back later and see how far you've come together! you are such an adorable pregger by the way ;)

    The House of Shoes

  10. I seriously think you are one of the most adorable/best dressed pregnant ladies I've ever seen : ) Love this post and learning about you!



  11. 1. My blog is about life, photography, sometimes fashion and crafting, and most often it's my outlet to whine about boys.

    2. Um, I really love The Hourglass Door series. Probably the first one is my favorite.

    3. Egg salad. :)

    4. Hmmmm... probably my most favorite pinterest thing is all the nail inspiration. Do I really have to pick just one? I'mma publish this comment and not pick just one. take that.

    5. Wow. I have no idea. Probably the Who Says one about true beauty? Maybe? Dang, this is hard.

  12. Cutie. Mmmm, I loveee peanut butter and banana sandwhiches...it's been TOO LONG since I've had one too!

    Thanks for your comment on my book post...yay for reading and being raised by great parents! For one thing, don't buy your 6 year old have an ipod or tablet. That's just crazy, if you ask me!


  13. Very excited to learn more about you! And that bump of yours is looking pretty cute if I do say so myself ;)

  14. Cute photos! It's always nice getting to know others a bit better ;)

  15. I haven't seen you for a while! You are looking so cute! And Happy Birthday to your sweetie.

  16. I wasn't sure if I responded to your comment on my blog if you'd get it, so I'm responding here. :)

    I'll totally write letters pen-pal style with you if you want.

  17. I'm using my iPhone so I can't answer all the questions but my blog is about my newlywed life!! Love how you decorate le bump...too cute!!

  18. Stop by my blog today. I'm passing along a blogging award to you. Congrats!

  19. Um, I'm gonna be one of the few to answer. Because I am terribly bored.

    1. It's about a lot of nothing, and I've been blogging for about two years!
    2. Redeeming Love
    3. Boring turkey, swiss, lettuce and tomato is my favorite! But only on toasted wheat bread.
    4. I'm basically all about pinning, not so much about trying out. I've tried a few hairstyles but they never work with my too long, too thick hair!
    5. I don't write much quality stuff, but my post about my conversion and baptism is probably my favorite!

  20. Aww...thanks so much for your kind words :) I hope you had a great weekend...conference was awesome as usual!

  21. clearly it's been FAR too long since i've visited your blog. congrats on the precious baby bump!!! more than half way there, yay!!!

  22. Hey there, I commented earlier but for some reason it didn't go through. I blame my high school's internet connection.

    1.My blog is about daily life and the likes, and I have been blogging for 2 years.
    2. Currently, "Funny in Farsi". I highly recommend it for a good laugh.

    5. I like the posts where I blog about my trials, because I learn from them and hope my readers do as well!

    Thank you for always commenting and being so sweet! I sorta copied your idea on my blog today, because I admire you so much!

  23. Hey. Hey, you. How do you be so cute?? Seriously. You are a doll.

    I am Chelsea. I blog at Perfect in my Mind. I blog about random stuff, and sometimes funny stuff. You already know this.

    My favorite book is "Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl."

    My favorite lunch sandwich is zes:http://www.ourbestbites.com/2011/05/teriyaki-chicken-salad-sandwiches/

    My favorite recipe from Pinterest is zes: http://www.cookincanuck.com/2011/11/hearty-chicken-stew-with-butternut-squash-quinoa-recipe/

    And my favorite blog post I have ever written is zes: http://chelseabellebryant.blogspot.com/2011/08/to-beard-or-not-to-beard-that-is.html


  24. Emma! I'm such a slacker! I totally meant to do this forever ago. ha! :)

    1. My blog is about my life as college student and I've been blogging since September of 2011.

    2. My favorite book is Persuasion by Jane Austen.

    3. Bologna or tuna. :)

    4. I haven't really done anything too special from Pinterest. BUT I'm going to be cousin's maid of honor in her wedding & we will definitely be pulling wedding ideas. :)

    5. I like to write about raw life. So, my favorite posts are the ones where I truly show how I'm feeling and not sugar-coating how angry slash sad slash annoyed I am. I feel like everybody gets that way and it's really nice to realize that people are human.

    P.S. I love you, Emma!! You seriously rock my world and your bump is SOOOO adorable!! :)

  25. just came across your blog -- so lovely!

    i'm tara and i blog at blog.tarapolly.com. i'm a photographer, wife, and lover of all things vintage. i blog about my shoots, about fashion, my yellow lab and sweet husband, and about choosing to live as an expression of kindness in the world.

    i love to read so this changes often but i'll just say into the wild.

    i'm a vegetarian so toasted with cream cheese, avocado, tomato, cucumber, spinach and sprouts pretty much rules my life!

    i was inspired by some handmade save-the-dates on pinterest that i based our christmas card off of this year -- so fun!

    it'd have to be the post chronicling my valentine's date with my husband this year. full of love and silliness.
