First off, I am in love with Texas. I have lived here for a year and I absolutely love it. I love the food (except for TexMex- I'm weird, I know). I love the people! I'm from the hospitality state but Texas has some of the nicest people I've ever met. I love that it is 80 degrees in the middle of winter. There is so much to do here (I live in Houston). There is always a concert, sporting event, comedy show, or festival going on. Texas has so many awesome cities too: Houston, Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio and they are all just a few hours away from each other.
As for Mississippi, I love that there is NEVER traffic! I don't think I really knew what traffic was until I moved to Houston, TX. In Mississippi you can drive an hour and be halfway across the state but in Texas you can drive an hour and be halfway across town. We didn't have enough people for traffic in Mississippi. I love the simplicity of life there. It really is a beautiful state, there is so much of it that hasn't been developed and it's really nice. There are really no big cities in Mississippi so most of the time you end up growing up in a town where everybody knows everybody (and most people are related).
3. What/who inspires you?
Other women in general inspire me. Whether it be someone I'm friends with, a coworker, a family member, a celebrity, or another blogger. There are so many women that are making a difference. There are so many women that are starting businesses, breaking that glass ceiling, or being the best mom they can be.
4. What are two recent posts from your blog that you particularly enjoy?
I wrote a post about "All the things you never wanted to know about me" that is just random things about myself accompanied with a pretty great throwback picture of me and my brother. Spoiler alert: He's wearing a coon skinned cap.
5. Where do you see yourself in five years?
I have high expectations for myself. I'm really putting everything into my online boutique and betting on myself. I've invested a lot of time and money and for it to be successful I know I will have to dedicate more time and money. Currently I work as a recruiter but in five years I see myself solely doing the online boutique.
As far as my personal life goes, I'm still undecided if I want to have another kid. I kind of think we hit the jackpot with Kate and I don't know if we could get this lucky again. She is hands down the coolest kid you'll meet. She's a hot mess half the time (please see the picture that accompanies this post for proof) but then again she is my kid and I would expect nothing less. On the other hand, I love having a brother so I don't want to deprive her of having a sibling and at the rate my brother is going she won't have cousins until she's in high school. But either way, I think I'll be happy.
