Tell us a little bit about your blog:

Wife and Mommy is a blog about my life…and this season of my life is mostly focused on being a wife and mommy and raising biracial kids. Yet I consider the many different aspects of my life, so I blog about anything that catches my attention, thoughts that pop into my head, books I like, etc. It’s a mish-mash and you never know what you’re going to find!

Please answer TWO of the following questions: (Your choice.)

Name one thing that might surprise people about you: I am the first person in my family–immediate and extended–to become a U.S. citizen. I beat them all by being born here while they were waiting to become naturalized citizens! As a result, I straddled two cultures as I was growing up, and now I work to incorporate both as I am am raising my own children.

Aside from blogging, what would you name as some of your passions? I love to read. The Husband knows that when I hunker down with a good book and and a warm blanket, he has lost me for a good chunk of time. I’ve also recently become enamored with knitting. I find it very soothing, and I like having a sense of accomplishment as I look over my work-in-progress!

We all love to discover new blogs. Name two of your favs!

Lumpyhead is one of my favorite blogs, mostly because she has a sharp wit and keeps me laughing. It also helps that she is mydoppelgnger. Our lives have similarities–we each have three gorgeous biracial children in a boy-girl-boy combination, we both live in the NoVA area, and we often mistake ourselves for the other! But our lives also have differences, namely that she has a high-ranking, powerful job that makes me oooh and ahhh. I aspire to grow up to be like her one day.
Big Red Kitchen is another favorite blog I like to follow. I mean, who doesn’t love pictures of yummy-licious foods that make you drool? I do. I am not a foodie, although I appreciate good food! Robin Sue has great recipes that are easy enough for me to follow and she has not lead me astray yet.
