I am so pleased to invite Randi from S Club 4 to join me here on Acting Balanced for the Saturday Blogger Spotlight! Please grab a cup of coffee, put your feet up and learn more about this great blogger!
1. Tell us a little bit about your blog:
My blog is a hodge podge of my life - posts about my family, about autism (my 5-year-old son was diagnosed in 2011), about running (I'm a 4x half marathoner hoping for a full marathon next year), and anything else my mind comes up with.
2. How long have you been blogging and what do you love about it?
I've been blogging since 2004 on various sites. I love the community surrounding bloggers. I've met some wonderful people via this opportunity.
3. Who is the person or group behind the blog?
I'm Randi. I'm a SAHM of two boys. I've been married for 6 years. And I'm a follower of Christ.
4. What hobbies/interests do you have?
I run - about 4x a week. I love it. I also enjoy beading bracelets (I learned in the Philippines on a missions trip) and watching tv (current favorites are Once Upon a Time and Parenthood). I also make a mean pie (http://thesclub.blogspot.com/2011/11/my-newest-skill-pie-making.html)!
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?
I would serve pot roast because it is awesome and feeds a lot of people. I would invite my husband because I never get enough time with him. I would also invite Ryan Hall, Brad Paisley, and Temperence Brennan (from the tv show Bones).
6. I can’t live without…Jesus. Wow, that sounds cliche but it's totally true.
7. Something people would be surprised to know about me is…
I like really differing music styles - Christian, pop, rap, classical, country. I love 80s, 90s, 50s - just a bunch.
8. Three of my favorite blogs to visit are (includue urls) :
Matt & Stacy's blog - missionaries in Haiti (http://mshaiti.blogspot.com/)
Another Mother Runner - community of mother runners (http://anothermotherrunner.com/)
Ann Voskamp's blog - if you haven't read "One Thousand Gifts" do yourself a favor and do. (http://www.aholyexperience.com/)
9. Three of my favorite posts on my blog are (Include urls)
I don't keep a list of my all-time favorites but my most recent favorites are:
Word of the Year (http://thesclub.blogspot.com/2012/01/top-ten-tuesday-my-word-of-year.html) probably because I feel I've made great strides in these areas this past year.
Heaping on the Blessings (http://thesclub.blogspot.com/2012/04/heaping-on-blessings.html) because I know how God has blessed me and I want to shout it to His glory!
Sherry Arnold (http://thesclub.blogspot.com/2012/02/for-sherry-arnold.html) about my run to honor a fallen runner.
Kids (http://thesclub.blogspot.com/2012/05/kids.html) about the children on my mission trip to the Philippines.
