Guest Post / Brock Paper Scissors

Hi, I'm Joanna from over at Brock Paper Scissors. 
Lauren asked me to do a guest post answering some questions about myself, so here goes...

I first got into reading blogs a couple of years ago (sewing and cooking, then when I got preggo with Lola, baby blogs), but it wasn't until around June of this year that I decided to start blogging myself. I've never been good about keeping up with baby books, so I thought this would be a good way to document our daily happenings. So far, I've really enjoyed it!

A typical day for me (if Nico has preschool)...
Wake up to my alarm clock or Nico waking me up; whichever comes first
Get the kids and myself dressed and ready for the day
Get everyone fed and out the door by 9:00a.m., so we can make it to preschool on time
Run any errands I need to with Lola, while Nico's at school
Pick Nico up from school at 12:15p.m.
Come home and eat lunch
Nap time (this is the time when I get laundry, blogging and housework done)
After nap time, we all play until it is time to make dinner
Cook dinner and sit down at the table as a family to eat (this is really important to us)
After dinner and dishes, the kiddos get baths (thankfully, the husby does this)
This is followed by story time and bedtime for Nico (Lola stays up with us right now)
Dan and I usually hang out and watch TV for an hour or two
Bed time is around 10 or 11 for us (we act like old fogies)

I have plenty of weird quirks and habits, lol! Probably the one that annoys the Hubs the most, though, is that I have to check the closet and under the bed before I can go to sleep (not even joking). Gotta check for murderers, yo!

The highlight of 2011 has probably been our move from San Diego to Virginia (my husband, Dan, is in the Navy). While I loved the weather in SD, VA just feels more like home (Texas) to me.

This pic is probably one of my favorites! It's of the 3 people I love most in this world!
Thanks for sharing Joanna! 
I have a similar quirk, I check my house for uninvited guests when I get home!
Make sure you pop over to her delightful blog and say hello.


  1. Virginia is one of the most lovely places in the good ol' u.s. of a to live in.. I don't blame her at all for loving it. I miss it.

  2. Aw what a lovely interview, and that picture is too cute for words!

  3. Isn't it just the cutest picture! Joanna's little family are cutiepies!


Thanks for stopping by!
