Behind the Blogger: An Interview with Jeannette from The Adventures of JMan & MillerBug

Blogger interviews are back at Acting Balanced!  If you'd like to be featured on Behind the Blogger, I'd love to arrange an interview for a future segment!  Just shoot me an email at or leave a comment or question below for Jeannette and mention that you'd like to be featured in the future and I'll wave my Acting Balanced wand to get the questions to you!

I am so pleased to invite my friend Jeannette from The Adventures of JMan & MillerBug to hang out on Acting Balanced and let us get a small peek into her life and to get a little glimpse of the blogger behind her blog!

1. Tell us a little bit about your blog:  

My blog is my baby.  Most days it's a hodge podge of the things I love - cooking, crafting, reviews, giveaways, ramblings on how crazy being a mom is.  It started out as a way to share special moments with my family and has grown into my way to stay sane and share the trials of being a mom with the world.  It's also been a unique resource to me where I can seek advice of other mothers and get feedback on the struggles that I have.

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

I've been blogging for a little over 2 years (craziness!) and I love that it allows me to work from home doing something I love while still being able to pick my children up from school.

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

It's just me!  LOL!  After becoming a young mom at 22 and a second time mom at 32, I think I offer a unique perspective to parenting at all ages.  I guess we'll have to have another at 42 to keep the craziness going (but shhhh, don't tell my hubby).

4. What hobbies/interests do you have?  

I love crafting and cooking - which I never discovered until I started my blog.  I'm also a big fan of getting outside and exercising.  Really, there is not much I don't like to do - except clean.  Yeah, I definitely don't like to clean.

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?  

My dad of course.  After losing him 2 years ago he would be my number one choice.  After that I'd have to say my mom (cause she'd kill me if dad was there and I didn't), my husband (because I need someone to tell me my meal doesn't stink) and my best friend from high school.  In case you can't tell, I'm not about celebrities - give me my family and I'm a happy, happy girl.  As for what I'd serve, probably something simple like spaghetti because I won't want to waste my time with the ones I love cooking. 

6. I can’t live without… My pearls and makeup - if you've met me you understand.  I'm Southern to the core.

7. Something people would be surprised to know about me is…I was incredibly shy as a child.  I couldn't look people in the eye and hated going places where I didn't know anyone.  Boy how the times have changed!
