Switching things up today on the eleventh installment of The Friday Post, with a little friend on friend interview. Stephanie and I are sharing ten different questions we came up with in order to get to know each other a little better. Below are ten questions she asked me! Click here to see ten questions I asked her!

1. What is your favorite part of being a Mom? Is there a least favorite part?
My favorite part of being a mom is summed up in a series of simple moments. Moments when she takes her hands and places them on my cheeks and says "my mommy." When she plays with my hair. When I come home after a day of worry and she says "Hi mom." That's worth every hard part.

My least favorite part is how it changes your relationship with people around you. For example, if you have friends that are parents, they'll usually understand. They get why you go to bed early and why you are busy all the time. What's hard is trying to justify to others why you dont want to go out. Why you cant go out, and why a Saturday night in is so lovely. That part is tough, but I guess real friends withstand the test of time. 

2. On a scale of 1-10 (one being "not at all" and ten being "off-the-charts"), how "weird" are you? What do you think is your biggest "quirk"?
I'd say I'm a solid 8.5. I happen to be horrifically paranoid. In almost any public setting I mentally prepare an escape route or what I would do to get away in case of emergency. I'm also oddly fascinated by serial killers. I've watched so many documentaries, read so many books. I'd say that's right on the weird scale. Perhaps this is the source of my paranoia? (; 

3. If you could live anywhere, where would that be and why?
In a heartbeat I would move to Sitka, Alaska. In 2009 I visited Alaska and just became obsessed. There's something so magical going on up there and it really does feel like you're on another planet. They're disconnected in a good way. Less technology, less everything really. Oh, and whale watching?! Talk about the coolest thing ever. 

4. Blogging has opened a lot of doors for me, as I'm sure it has for you. What is an opportunity that you have yet to experience that you would like blogging to make available to you and what is an experience that you never want to deal with in your time as a blogger?
I hate dealing with brands contacting me wanting me to do a post about their webpage. Then they toss in the "we'll pay you $20." So they want me to say how great I think their webpage is, that I have personally never purchased anything from, to whore myself out over $20? No thanks. Now if a brand like Boots, Now Foods, or one that I ALWAYS talk about wanted me to do so, I'd say yes, and probably do it for free. I find nothing wrong with supporting brands you actually love. I'd love to work with brands I continue to purchase month after month. I'd love that opportunity.  

5. What makes a "quality" friend for you?
I like low maintenance friends. I need to be able to live my life and know my friends aren't bitter that I'm a mom and have less of a social life. I also need friends I can say what I'm thinking. If my friend is being stupid, I need to be able to tell them they're being stupid without the friendship changing in anyway. 

6. I hate doing the dishes, and nine out of ten times the house is clean but there are still dishes in the sink. I would call this MY most-dreaded task of cleaning my home. Do you have a most-dreaded or daunting chore? If you do, what is it?
I hate mopping the kitchen floor. I have never done it in our apartment. Fortunately, Joshua doesn't mind so it does get done.

7. Do you believe that social media has become too superficial? If so, what are some ways that you prevent your social media from becoming too falsified? 
I believe that with all things in life, social media is good in moderation. For example, I post to Instagram a lot of photos I feel are worthy. Good quality with nice lighting. Sometimes I take them with my phone, and other times with my camera. None of my photos personally are "fake." I like cats, flowers, and my baby and what you see is what you get. I do think there are people who abuse it, but as long as you keep a level head and can identify the smoke and mirrors, I think social media is fine. 

8. Sometimes I hear a song and feel like it was written for or about me. Not in a vain way, but the description of what is going on in the song's story is very relatable to my life. What one song would you pick to best describe your life, your history or your views/experiences in life?
I feel so passionately about music. I have a million play lists I listen to from happy music, to sad, to a play list to remind me how loved I am. Picking one song is so tough. There are so many songs I listen to that make me feel something. I don't care if it's rap, jazz, pop, country. I listen to it all. I identify with the way a song makes me feel, not necessarily a genre. 

9. Describe your biggest makeup pet peeve. It could be something you used to do, or something that others do.
I'm just not into the sharpie marker brow look. You know, that super drawn on look. I don't get it and it really creeps me out. Oh, and baking.... like, could we stop baking unless we're about to perform on stage and our makeup needs to be seen 23 rows back?

10. If you could pick one actress to play your part in a movie about your life, who would you pick and why?
J Law of course! She's so chill and down to earth, I know she'd never disappoint. <3
