I would like to introduce Jennifer O'Reilly. She is such a kind, sweet, talented, and super fun mommy! I love reading her blog, and I know you will too. She has a beautiful family and she does a great job of capturing her family memories. My personal favorite posts are when she shares things about her design projects.

Question #1: How do you take your coffee?
3 tsp of sugar and creme brulee creamer
Question #2: How long have you been blogging?
Almost 3 years
Question #3: When you first began blogging, what did you hope to accomplish with your blog? How, if any, have your blog goals shifted as you've become more experienced?
I started my blog with my in-laws in mind. They live in Georgia, and I wanted to keep them as close to us and the kids as possible. It's not easy having family living far away so I try to keep them updated with our lives through our blog. I also love that our kids lives are chronicled and I hope to make our blog into a book one day for the kids.
Question #4: Red wine, white wine, or depends on the occasion, meal, etc.?
Definitely depends on what I'm doing, what I'm eating, and who I'm with. I love both!
Question #5: Ultimate vacation spot? Is this somewhere you've been, or hope to visit someday?
Since we honeymooned in Sante Fe, I hold a very special place in my heart for turquoise jewelry, art galleries, cowboy boots and pinion wood. They're so many places I could have fun in. Greece in high up on my list of places to see.
Question #6: Cheez-its or Cheese Nips?
Question #7: Describe the perfect date night with your hubby.
I miss riding on the back of my hubby's Harley. Since we've had kids, we don't ride anymore. I would love to take a ride around Lake Hefner and have dinner on the patio of somewhere casual. I miss those days!
Question #8: If you could invite one celebrity, past or present, to dinner, who would you invite and why?
Lady Ga Ga. Just to see what she would wear.
Question #9: What is your favorite charitable organization? JLOC
Question #10: Name three things that you are passionate about in life.
God, Family, Friends
Question #11: If you could spend the day by yourself, with no phone, email, carpool, errands, etc., how would you spend your day?
Spa day that includes mani, pedi, facial & massage. Lunch on a patio with a glass of Sauv Blanc and a shrimp caesar salad. Browse some antique shops/boutiques for a fabulous find or fun piece of jewelry. Maybe hit up a book store and catch up on my favorite decor/celebrity gossip magazines.
Question #12: What advice would you give to someone that has just begun blogging?
Don't get frustrated and google the questions you need answers to. It's a work in progress.
Question #13: What is one of your favorite family traditions?
Dressing in Red, White & Blue, loading the girls up in their wagon, and heading to the 4th of July parade in Edmond.
Question #14: Name three baby items that you thought you had to have pre-kids, but now that you've had kids, realize you didn't really need. Name three baby must-haves.
1. Bedding~Our baby nurse told us in our parenting class that all we needed was a sheet and I thought that was the saddest thing I'd ever heard. But, I have to say after a few months I took the bumper out (Fear of SIDS and 5 month old Audrey was pulling herself up and trying to stand on it) and we never used the big blanket that came with the bedding. I removed the dust ruffle after we moved the crib lower to the ground. It was so important to have pretty bedding at the time, but after a 2nd baby I thinks it's a waste of money and time.
Must haves-Boppy, pack-in-play, video monitor, (and diapers diapers diapers!)
Question #15: What is your favorite drink from Sonic?
Lame, but it's what I always get. A route 44 water. So thirst quenching!
