Guest Blogger: Sara

Today, it is my pleasure to introduce the wonderful and funny Sara from Sara's Organized Chaos! Her blog is so great and each time I read it, it puts a smile on my face!

You should all go and check out her lovely blog after you read this post!

Before I introduce myself... I want to thank Kate for asking me to do a guest post for her. I always enjoy these especially when I get a set of questions to answer. It requires almost no work!

1. Tell us about you and your blog. 
Well.. I'm a mommy to two kids (Olivia-5 and Jackson-3), two cats (Stumpy and Batman), married to my husband Matt for seven years, I work part time and have my own Etsy shop ( And then in my free time I blog. And by "free time" that means I kick Matt and the kids out of my bedroom, lock the door and spew forth my crazy into a blog format. I had never blogged in any capacity before I started my blog, Sara's Organized Chaos ( and originally started it to keep friends/family updated with my kids. It turns out either they are all lazy or don't really care because they never checked it. And at the time, I was really stressed out with my job and life, and I needed a place to vent... so I changed it to what it is today. And miraculously- my family started reading it and I get yelled at all the time about my blog. :)

2. What is your favorite book? 
Oh man. Narrow it down to one??? Wow. I am an avid reader and I consume every book I can get my hands on. I do book reviews on my blog for TLC book tours and I encourage everyone to read as much as they can. But one of my favorite books, one that I recommend to EVERYONE, would be The Leisure Seeker by Michael Zadoorian. It's a great story about elderly parents who have failing health, and how their children just want them to live in a nursing home. Well... the parents have other plans and hit the road in their Leisure Seeker RV and hilarity and sadness ensues. It really made me think about my own parents differently.

3. What makes you a nerd? 
Definitely my reading makes me nerdy. I always have a book with me. I also like rocks and if I could have been a Geologist, I totally would have. Except you need math skills and I can barely add. Don't ever ask me to do any kind of math in my head because you'll just get a blank stare from me. But I also totally love reading paranormal/sci fi books with vampires, angels, nephilim, wolves, etc. I totally dig that kind of stuff and often wonder if we're alone on our planet. I'm not so worried about aliens unless they want to probe me, but I don't know. I guess I'd worry about that at the moment, ya know?

4. You have three hours to live. What do you do? 
Squeeze my kids' guts, get an afternoon quickie with my husband and finish my book. While eating spaghetti and drinking as much Pepsi as I possibly could.

5. Describe the perfect sandwich.
 I don't know if live gets better than crunchy peanut butter and grape jelly sandwiches. But a close second would be turkey or chicken with colby jack cheese and a little lettuce. And both would have to be on white bread because wheat is for losers.

6. What would be your ideal job? 
I like doing clerical things, and I have an Associates Degree as an Administrative Assistant. I currently work at a college bookstore and I love it. I love being around books, I love being able to read books at work. SO.. one day I'd like to be able to be here full time and mixing my two loves together.

7. What is the most important thing in your life? 
Knowing my family is safe and happy. It took me awhile to learn that no matter what else is going on- if you have a safe and happy family you have everything. I used to work in a job I once loved but it turned into something I dreaded going to and I wasn't happy and I realized I had to get out of there because my unhappiness and stress were really affecting everyone around me. And once I left and got things back on track I was able to look at how unhealthy everything once was. So I'm definitely a living example of the importance at being happy at your job and how it spills into your home life.

8. Would you rather fight two hundred two year olds or two hundred chihuahuas? 
They are pretty much the same thing, they both make intolerable noises and they whine. But I'm going to say I'd take the 200 hundered 2 year olds because you know that some of them have to be the loners of the group and you can go all pyschological on them and get them on your side. And frankly- if you threaten kids by saying if they don't stop right now, monsters really will eat them at night, they usually chill out. I doubt a chihuahua really cares.

That was fun! It reminds me of my Friday Dear Sara posts where I take all kinds of questions from readers whether it be "get to know me" questions or questions they have and want my advice on. It's fun and I answer everythign that comes to my mail box! Please stop by my blog and hang out with me for a bit... I have some of the best readers ever (Kate is proof of that) so you know you'll have a good time. Or at least be able to laugh at me. :)

Thanks so much for posting on my blog Sara! You're amazing!

Don't forget to go and check out her blog!

Also, I was featured over on Sunny Dee's blog. You should go and check out my post and her blog as well!

I think that's one of the best ways to spend the last three hours you've got. Except change out the Pepsi with Dr. Pepper.
