9 at 9 ~ An interview with...

I am so pleased to have my blog friend Nikki from Scents, Sacks and Sassy Girls here at Acting Balanced and sitting in the 9 at 9 hot seat!  I love that she's already been through freshman year of high school with her eldest daughter and I know that I'm going to be facing that in the fall... I also love that her blog is as eclectic as mine!

1. Tell us a little bit about your blog: 

I blog about a  little of everything, my life and goals, my youngest daughter's struggles with ADHD, cheerleading, reviews and giveaways and the occasional rant can be found too!
2. How long have you been blogging and what do you love about it? 

On my current blog since March, but I have been blogging for a few years now. Mostly about cheer stuff, this is the first time I have blogged that has not been centered around that!
3. Who is the person or group behind the blog? 

Just me, I do everything myself
4. What hobbies/interests do you have? 

Reading, Writing (although I wish I was much better at it), being involved with my kids activities ( although sometimes they wish I was WAY less involved). My girls keep me pretty busy, and I love spending time with my friends! I also sell Thirty One and Scentsy and really enjoy being able to get out and meet new people.
5. If you could invite 4 people (real or fictional, living or dead) to a dinner party, who would you invite and what would you serve? 

Wow, this is a tough one. First would be my grandfather, second would be Bob Harper from the biggest loser- because I think he is AMAZING, third would be Dave Matthews, and fourth would be Maddie Gardner ( for my youngest daughter, because she is a huge fan). See I pick super random people!! And I would of course serve something healthy because Bob Harper would there...lol
6. I can’t live without… 

This is really sad to say, but probably my smart phone. I didn't put my kids, because to me that is just a given. And I'm not going to put my favorite TV show, because I think my dinner guests is embarrassing enough..lol
7. Something people would be surprised to know about me is… 

And here it comes anyways, I am really and truly a reality TV show junkie. Every season of The Bachelor/ Bachelorette I say I am never watching this crap again, and ever season I watch again and again.  I think that Bravo is possible some of the best TV shows ever, I love the real housewives of anything, and never miss it. I also DVR General Hospital everyday and have watched it since I was a kid with my Mom.
8. Three of my favorite blogs to visit are:

The Adventures of J-Man and Miller Bug -http://jmanandmillerbug.com/ She always has great parenting articles, and awesome reviews!! Plus she has helped me TONS and TONS with getting my blog up and running!
Slap Dash Mom -http://slapdashmom.com/ Sadie makes me laugh so hard that sometimes I have to make sure I'm not drinking something while reading so it doesn't end up on my screen!
And of course your blog- http://www.actingbalanced.com/ And I love that you came out and said you are hooked on a facebook game, this made my day and I feel much better about my problem with playing The Oregon Trail now :)
9. Three of my favorite posts on my blog are:

I really want to thank Nikki for letting us have a glimpse into her world... I confess that I had to google who Maddie Gardner was, but I'm so glad that you took the time out to share more about your life, your blog and your fantasy dinner party plans with all of us!  In addition to checking out Nikki's blog, you can also keep up with her by checking her out on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/ScentsSacksAndSassyGirls and Twitter -  https://twitter.com/#!/ScentsSackSassy
