How many siblings do you have? Are you close?

I have 2 older brothers. One that is 18 months older than I am and one that is 5 years older than me I believe. I can never remember how much older the oldest is. 

When we were growing up, we were not that close. I mean we were always together because we were living in the same house and our bedrooms were right across the hall from each other.

The older we have gotten the closer we have gotten. I love my brothers so much! And I am very thankful they are a part of my life! I can't imagine doing life without them!

365 Day Blog Challenge - Day 337

What one cause do you feel passionate about?

MOPS. Definitely MOPS!

MOPS is a wonderful organization. I joined it when my kiddo was 2 almost 3. And we went until she graduated out. After she turned 6, I joined the volunteer team and became a coach. I did that for 3 years before joining the special projects. I now help with events/managing our FB page/creating content and then I help with approving people and post in our MOPS Coordinators group. I love it and will volunteer as long as they let me!

I wish every mom knew about MOPS and got plugged into it. It is such a motivating place and you get to realize that no mom is alike... but we don't have to walk this thing called mommyhood alone! You are NOT alone.

If you would like to join a MOPS group, you can go to and select find a group. Or, if you would like to chat about it, I am always willing to talk about MOPS!

If you could witness any event past or present, what would it be?

I think as hard as this is to say, it would have been my cousin Trena's death. 
I would have loved to be there to try to talk her out of it, but if that wasn't a possibility, to be there when she died, so she wasn't alone.
