1. Tell us a little bit about your blog:
Sippy Cup Chronicles focuses on my day to day life as a Mom to my two girls. I also like to blog about products that help me, as well as, beauty ideas and important parenting news.
2. How long have you been blogging and what do you love about it?
I started my Sippy Cup Chronicles in June of 2011 after having two under two. Having my girls 18 months apart kept me in my house a lot and for someone that always worked or was in school I felt a need to do something and start a hobby. I also felt that it was important for other parents not to feel alone in this journey through parenthood. Its an amazing but sometimes difficult journey and I love to share my experiences to help others. I really love connecting with others and other bloggers and I am continually learning so many new things. It keeps my brain moving and I find it so much fun!
3. Who is the person or group behind the blog?
I am a thirty two year old stay at home, married, Mom to two little girls that are now 20 months and 3. We live in South Florida, but I am originally from the Jersey Shore…haha not Snooki’s Jersey shore, about 20 minutes north. I moved down here to go to college and fell in love with the warm weather and sandy beaches. I met my husband here and we decided to start our family here. We were married in 2004 and our first daughter was born in 2009 and our second daughter was born 18 months later in 2011. I also have my MBA and my degree in Elementary Education.
4. What hobbies/interests do you have?
My favorite hobby is actually my blog. I really put a lot of time and effort into it and I really enjoy it. I don’t see it as a job, but as a hobby. I also love spending time with my girls and going to the beach. Having two toddlers doesn’t really leave you with much time to do anything else.
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?
And I would serve Pizza. Who doesn’t like pizza??
