Blogger Interview with... Martha from A Southern Transplant

I am pleased to invite Martha from A Southern Transplant to hang out on Acting Balanced today! 

1.       Tell us a little bit about your blog:

My blog is my little corner of the interweb where I talk about life…I don’t really think I fit into the lifestyle, fashion, foodie, or mommy blog genres. My blog is just like me (and my family)-all over the place-kind of like chickens with our heads cut off!

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

I’ve been blogging off and on since 2011 with several breaks. I’ve been seriously blogging since December 2012. I love it because I’ve “met” so many interesting ladies, learned all sorts of new crafts, recipes…and laughed a lot. I think laughing is one of the most important things in life!

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

Just me! A busy happily married, working mom to four tweens (two are mine, two are my husband's)  and a rescue dog !

4.       What hobbies/interests do you have?

My favorite thing to do is travel. Steve and I spent two weeks last summer camping through southern Utah, and this year, we’re planning a similar trip to Montana. I like to run, I like to cook, and I love Person of Interest. I hate reality TV except Duck Dynasty. I love Etsy and thrift shopping. I love my kids, my dog, Nutmeg, and the South Carolina Gamecocks!!!

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?

Thomas Jefferson, Robert E. Lee, Steve (my husband), and my Dad. I’d serve nice tasty venison tenderloins and potatoes because I know two out of the four men on this list are, for sure, meat and potato kind of guys. And wine so we could start the conversation.

6.       I can’t live without…

My family, my dog, music, and La Croix sparkling water.

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

I hate milk, but I like all other dairy products.

8.       Three of my favorite blogs to visit are:

I have several that I read daily and I would classify as my favorites, so picking three is tough! Here are some of my regular reads:

Southern Living, Our Way-Alexa is hilarious and her posts always makes me laugh!

Tarole at One Haole Girl-she loves to hike and is super nice, even to small bloggers like me!

Shanna at Because Shanna Said So-she’s a fashonista and an honest blogger!
9.    Three of my favorite posts on my blog are:

How about the time my car got stuck:
Or the time I wrote to my teenage self:
…and how about the one I wrote about my kiddos?
