For this week’s #AskAwayFriday, I have the great pleasure to be swapping with the amazing Lanaya from Raising Reagan! Lanaya is a wonderfully, spunky, working, wife and mom to adorable Reagan whom I have had the great joy of getting to know better through #AskAwayFriday. She is a self prescribed fitness junkie, sports fanatic, and OCD perfectionist. All the while running an amazing online toy store that offers educational toys for the little ones, called Reagan’s Toy Chest. Getting to know Lanaya over these last few months has been wonderful, because she has become a truly genuine and beautiful friend. Be sure to stop by her site and check out the answers to the questions that I put to her.

Now on to Lanaya’s questions…

1. You are involved in a lot of different blog hops and link parties. Which one is a favorite and why?

#AskAwayFriday has been my absolute favorite. I have gotten to know so many amazing and wonderful people through it.

2. You are one of the most genuine people I know and I always appreciate your heartfelt comments when I’m having a tough time being a mom. What do you think keeps you going despite the daily challenges parenting faces?

Awe thank you! πŸ™‚ I think it is honestly a combination of stubbornness and a refusal to give up. I didn’t have the greatest examples for parents growing up, so for most things I fly by the seat of my pants and go with what my heart tells me.

3. Do you remember your first blog sponsor? Who was it?

I think that it was Jessica from The Wondering Brain.

4. Every once in a while I have this same dream over and over again. Do you have any recurring dreams?

Yes actually…I only ever remember snippets of the dream. I am the passenger in a car and we are driving through a hilly terrain and winding roads, until we come upon a huge sprawling estate, at night. The next thing I know is that I am inside what looks like an office inside the home and it is dark inside and somewhat foreboding. I wish that I could figure out more about it or why I have had it recur for years.

5. My schedule is all over the map now that I have transitioned to being a working mom. I rarely eat breakfast but it’s the most important meal of the day {or so I’ve been told!} What advice do you give me to make eating in the morning easier?

Ha-ha! I have actually not eaten breakfast since grade school. πŸ™‚ I have only eaten one meal a day for at least the last 20 years.

6. Would you choose a new wardrobe or a home makeover?

Since I am not a big one for fashion, I would so go for a home makeover. I am a huge fan of shows like Property Brothers, Holmes Inspection, Cousins Undercover, and the “Crasher” shows.

7. I told Dee last week that orange candies are my least favorite flavor … do you have a least favorite flavor or candy?

I have never been a fan of anise or black licorice.

8. I’m going to roll 8-10 into one question:
a. Trade places with one blogger for the day .. who do you pick?

Wow, this is a hard one! I think maybe The Pioneer Woman, not that I would ever be as good as her, but I think that she is such a neat lady. She does so much, that I wonder how she manages her time.

b. Trade places with one blog for the day … which blog do you takeover?

Oh I don’t know that I could trade places with any one, there are so many great ones!

c. Trade places with one celebrity for the day … who do you become?

I wouldn’t really want to trade places with any celebrity, my brain would literally shut down. Now one that I would visit with would be Dolly Parton, she is such beautiful and genuine lady and I think that I would just love to chat with her.

d. And finally … trade places with one historical figure for the day … who do you choose, what day {if applicable} and why?

For this one, I would say Queen Victoria. For some reason, I have always been fascinated with her and that era of history, not really sure why. πŸ™‚

Thank you so much swapping with me this week, it was a ton of fun!
