What's your favorite family tradition?

My favorite family tradition has become Halloween. We've only started it two years ago, but we do a family dinner with the grandparents so they can see the kiddos and trick or treat after. This year we invited a friend and her family - an added bonus and a new tradition!

What's the most challenging thing about being both a blogger and a mom?

The most challenging thing is finding the balance. Being a mom is 24/7, so I try to devote as much time as I can to my kids whether at home, at their activities or volunteering in the classroom. Lately I'm blogging around 10pm or in the mornings at like 4am. Sleep? What's that?

What's the most rewarding thing about being a mom?

Seeing those beautiful smiles every morning and knowing my husband and I are shaping them into the responsible, caring, beautiful individuals that they are.

What's the most unique or fun way to announce a pregnancy that you've seen? Please share a link with a picture if it's relevant.

We had fun surprising my family. At my son's 1st birthday, we decided it was time to let the "cat out of the bag" just before the cake. So we changed birthday boy's shirt, thanked all the guests for attending his special day, and said that HE had a special announcement to make. We turned him around and revealed his "big brother" shirt. Had everyone in tears!

What's the best form of exercise for a tired, busy mom who wants to get back in shape?

Jenn Willey

For me, I really love Zumba. There is a Zumba Studio within walking distance from my house where people of all fitness levels attend. It's great because I get to make new friends, have some "me time", and dance. I usually attend in the morning when my kids are in school, or on Friday nights when hubby is home and can take over. I love that its all about me!
