I am pleased to be interviewing my blog friend, Karon from: 

1. Tell us a little bit about your blog:

I started my blog to write about being a single mom and having to be frugal.  It evolved into writing about trends and travel.  I also write a little about my passions cooking and plus size fashion

2. How long have you been blogging and what do you love about it?

I have been blogging for 3 years.  I love my blog like another child.  It really is my 5 minutes alone.  

3. Who is the person or group behind the blog?

me, I am 33.  My degrees are in English and Journalism but I became a nurse after the economy went south.  Writing still is my passion. 

4. What hobbies/interests do you have?

I love crafting, reading, writing, shopping, the beach, spending time with my daughters. 

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?

This question is hilarious because I have been asked it and now Blogher is making it happen.  I would want Oprah, Martha Stewart, Katie Couric and Ellen.  I would serve Mexican food because I love it.  

6. I can’t live without…

leopard print, pierogies and my phone.

7. Something people would be surprised to know about me is…

I am a total dork!  At home I am sweatpants glasses and a pony tail.  I don't wear any makeup at all.
