Sunshine Award Goes To.....

Tabitha at a hundred tiny wishes nominated me for the Sunshine Award! I love learning about other bloggers and I get to write the questions. Also since I'm a blogger I can't help but love writing about myself so this is perfect. 

Here are the questions Tabitha asked me to answer. I hope you enjoy!

1 | lets's start with something normal: why did you start blogging, and how did your blog get its name?
I started blogging after I became obsessed with reading other blogs about motherhood. I decided to start my own so I could keep myself accountable with all the things I wanted to be as a wife and mother. I was newly married and pregnant so Mrs. Mama just fit. 
2 | do you have any tattoos? if so, tell us about them!
No tats for me. I'm not against them and would like to possibly have one. It would have something to do with my baby Jack. 
3 | do you have any children? any funny stories about how they got their names?
I have one cutie named Jack. My mom has always loved the name Jack. I liked it too since in my 7 years of teaching I had never taught a Jack. I loved that it was traditional yet modern. I have zero connections with a Jack so it was perfect. 
4 | what is your favorite food?
I love it when my mom cooks cornbread, fried potatoes, sliced tomatoes, stir-fried squash, and pinto beans.
5 | what are three beauty things that you couldn't live without?
Tinted lip gloss, eye liner, and my curling iron are my three beauty items.
6 | what is your favorite color?
White is my favorite color even though it isn't technically a color.
7 | name three places that you would love to go, and explain why.
1) NYC, because I would love the culture (for about a few days).
2) Greece, because it is beautiful.
3) Anywhere in Africa, because I would love to say I've been to Africa.
8 | what is your favorite blog post that you've ever written?
Man this is tough! I am going to go with "To My Jack Jack".
9 | what is your favorite memory?
10 | what is something about you that people would be surprised to learn?
I love to sleep on the couch. I always sleep on the couch when Jeremy is at work and sometimes I sneak out of bed and sleep on the couch in the middle of the night. Sleeping in any bed seems to always make my back hurt but the couch is always more comfortable. Most people would disagree. 
11 | name three things on your summer bucket list.
1) Do a painting project with Jack.
2) Read a couple of books.
3) Deep clean my house.

  1. Thank you for the nomination! I'm currently watching Friends now :-) It's my favorite show ever and I'm so excited to be in the hotel and able to watch it on TBS!

  2. I hate ranch too except when I'm eating cheese fries or buffalo chicken. But on anything else, I can't stand it! I know what you mean though. Apparently everyone is supposed to like ranch. What kind of painting project do you want to do with Jack? I've tried coloring with Travis before and he doesn't really care for it. We did finger paints one time and he hated the feeling of the paint on his hand. I want to do something with him that we've never done before though, but I'm so bad at coming up with activities!

  3. Thank you for the nomination!!!! Yay! :)

  4. Thanks for the nomination. I'm a little delayed in getting my post up and rewarding blogs! But hey that's life right! Lol. I also hate ranch!!! So you are not alone people really are like seriously. Like I'm lying about not liking something!
