Mommy's Fabulous Find Friday-Sadie and Stephanie

Happy Friday everyone! You know what that means-once again, I'm happy to feature one of YOU; my fab followers. It's been so great getting to know more and more bloggers while Fab Find Friday (as I affectionately call it) keeps rolling on. I really feel like my blog is helping to create a loving supportive community rather than just a network of Mommy bloggers.

Okay, people group hug!

Sorry...summer camp counselor moment. Anywho-this week you're in for a doubly fabulous treat! This week's Fab Find Friday featured followers are

Sadie and Her Mom (Stephanie)

That's right, I'm featuring both of these fabulous ladies this week. Sadie is not only the MOST adorable little girl, she's got a history in the blog world as old as she is! Stephanie writes both from Sadie's adorable perspective on This, That and the Other Thing and from her own at Indiana Joynes and Temple of Motherhood. Both blogs are fun (just like the ladies themselves) wonderfully written, and great reads.

Let's get to know them already!

So Sadie and Stephanie, tell us about yourself (Family/friends/pets? Career/hobbies? Fun facts? Hidden talents? Medical oddities?)...

Sadie is a rockin' 2 year old that bursts with energy and fruit flavor. She's been blogging since the day she was born. Sadie's first museum experience was when she was 2 weeks old.

Stephanie works at the Smithsonian Institution and manages travel programs. She's a trained archaeologist, and she eats way too much candy and drinks too much caffeine.

And of course everyone wants to know where we can find your writing...


Curious minds want to know-who and/or what inspires you to blog?
Sadie: Life, in general, is just awesome! I'm learning lots of new things, like the alphabet, how to put my shoes on, and how to dance. And Jeopardy! Jeopardy is the best thing ever! I write so my family can see what I'm up to even though they live far away.

We in the M House totally agree, Sadie-Jeopardy ROCKS!

Stephanie: My job is really unusual and puts me in odd situations, so I have to write about them. It's like calling up your friends, and saying, "You are never going to believe what happened!

Working for the Smithsonian has got to be the source of some awesome stories! Please share with us your favorite posts so far!

Sadie: My Thoughts About the Easter Bunny

My Dear Mr. Phelps Series

It was an accident....


A Few Words about Michael Jackson

Bravo! Bravo!

Being a Mommy Hasn't Changed Much Over the Years

What writers (and/or bloggers) do you read regularly?

Writer Dad

Smithsonian Journeys Blog (I'll be writing for this one soon.)

Around the Mall

What are your future plans for your writing/blog?
Sadie: This potty training is hard.

You ain't kidding! Good luck girlie!

Stephanie: I met Alan Bean from Apollo 12 and spent a good part of the day with him at the Air and Space Museum. He was the 4th man on the moon, and was sweet as can be.

Wow, how amazing is that! And now, for something completely different.......

What's your favorite season?
Sadie: Santa Season

Stephanie: Fall, because of my birthday, anniversary AND Halloween!

Which do you say: to MAY to/to MAH to?
Sadie: I don't know what that word is.

Stephanie: To MAY to... I'm from Ohio.

Who is/was your childhood best friend, and why? Are you still in touch?
Sadie: Edison Jackson Bear, IV, you can read about him here.

Stephanie: Dixie, my Cabbage Patch Kid... she lives with my mother.

What do you think is the most important life lesson you have learned so far?
Sadie: Don't hit. It's not nice. And say, "Please" and "Thank you". It shows people you care.

Stephanie: A cup of tea is the solution to everything. Sit, drink, talk, relax.

I would totally meet you girls for some tea (diet soda for me)! Thank you so much for visiting and doing my little interview here...and of course for following me!

Alright everyone, you know what to do--go check out these ladies' blogs so that you can see for yourself how FABULOUS they are!

You all have no idea what a riot Steph can be. I'm a college buddy of her's and boy the things that happen to her! I have no doubt in my mind that Sadie will take after her. I definitely recommend checking out their blogs! Oh - Sadie, Jack says peas aren't icky, give them a chance!
