Getting to Know You

Alabama Women Bloggers

1. What part of the state do you call home? Hoover

2. How long have you been blogging? Since July 8, 2007 !

3. Why did you start blogging? A friend sent the link to her blog and I thought it would be a great way for me to keep our friends and family up North up to date on our shenanigans. 

4. What is your favorite part of being a member of the Alabama Women Bloggers community? The support!  So awesome to see a tweet mentioning my blog! 

5. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Wow.  That's a toughie.  5 years from now my youngest will be in college and we'll be empty nesters.  Hmmmm.....there's a lot of possibilities!

6. If you could choose an actress to play you in your life, who would you choose and why? I have no idea.  I don't look like anyone famous.  I've always thought Diane Lane and Elizabeth Shue have aged gracefully and beautifully so I'd probably pick one of them. 

7. Name 5 things on your Bucket List that you hope you’ll check off before you die? #1 Travel to Madrid, Spain (I was born there), #2 learn how to play the drums, #3 learn how to wear false eyelashes, #4 be a contestant on the Amazing Race, #5 have a private reading with the Long Island Medium

8. If you could be known for one thing, what would it be and why?  One thing, huh?  How about for being loyal? 

9. Describe the best moment in your life. I don't think I can pick just one moment.  I've been very blessed. 

10. If you could “be” anything (no consequences, no fear), what would you “be”? I would be the female version of Indiana Jones. 

11. What or who inspires you to blog? Current events.  My blog isn't about one particular topic.  I blog about politics, religion, fashion, my family, a book I've read or want to read, travel, sports.  You name it.  I'm kind of like the Seinfeld show.  It's a show about nothing. 

12. We’re headed to your neck of the woods… what restaurant would you recommend? My favorite restaurant is in downtown Birmingham -- 26.  I love the atmosphere, I love the menu, I love the beverages and the bathrooms are so flippin' cool!  We also love Gian Marcos in Homewood. 

13. What’s a southern tradition you and your family have? Definitely college football!  We were huge Alabama fans before we even moved here and on a beautiful fall night you can find my family on the back deck with a roaring fire going watching a game with friends.  Thanks to our daughter, we've also been introduced to the Grove at Ole Miss.  #hottytoddy

14. If you could pick your favorite blog post from your blog this year, what would it be?

15. We all love social media, tell us your links so we can follow you! You can find me on Facebook at Make Mine A Cosmo, @AlabamaValerie on Twitter and I'm also on Pinterest.

Your answer about the female Indiana Jones deserves an award for best answer. How exciting would that life be? And Alabama football is one of my favorite things about fall. Roll Tide!
