Texas Women Bloggers

Today I'm linking up with all the wonderful ladies who are apart of Texas Women Bloggers.  I joined the group earlier this month & I'm so excited to get to know all of the women involved in this community.

So pull up a chair & let's chat....

1. What part of Texas do you call home?

I am a Native Texan & so proud of it. There are 3 places I consider home in Texas. First off,  I grew up in the little town of Crandall, just south east of Dallas (and when I say small, well we still don't have a red light in town).  I am a member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2006, so College Station was home to me for 4+ years.  And after graduation I moved to Houston, where I've been for the past 6 years & plan to stay until we can retire.
2. How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging a little over 3 years.

3. Why did you start blogging?
When I got pregnant with my daughter I started my blog.  I wanted to be able to update my family that lived out of town on our pregnancy & then on our little family.  Obviously over the years, the blog has evolved & changed as my life has.

4. When we visit your blog, what can we expect to discover?
You are going to get a lot of different things. Currently my blog is getting a makeover, so it's a little bare right now. But you will see lots of pictures of my kiddos & our life here in Houston & at our ranch. I love to cook, so I try to share recipes that our family loves.  I love to create & decorate, so DIY posts. Baby product reviews (mostly non-sponsored reviews), my faith, random rants, really, whatever is on my name it, I'll probably share it! :)

5. How did you come up with your Blog Title and what is its meaning?
I knew with our blog title I wanted to stick with my roots.  I grew up in the country. I love being in the country & getting dirty.  Our family spends a lot of time at our ranch.  I love to cook & when you are from the South everything is fried. So This Country Fried Life just came about.  Now that we have two kids, it still fits perfectly, because we will be raising our kids in the city, but with a love for the country life.

6. What do you love about being part of Texas Women Bloggers?
I just became apart of this group this month, but I'm looking forward to connecting with other ladies around the state!

7. Who inspires you to blog?

My family.  I love being able to write about our lives & things that are going on--the good & the bad.  Now that I'm reading more mom blogs, I'm inspired by their blogs.  It's nice to know that there are others going through the same every day battles as you, and I want to be able to share my experiences with other moms, because you never know who might need a little pick me up!

8. If you could pick a favorite blog post from this past year, what would it be?
This year was a big year for us because of the birth of our son.  I didn't blog as much as I did during my pregnancy with him, as I did with my daughter, so the post about his birth is my favorite.  It's amazing how a little boy can grab your heart.

I hope you got to know a little about me.  Now it's your turn, answer one of the above questions in the comments for all of us to read!
