I swear, I am addicted to blogs. I can spend my day or even a weekend, searching for blogs. Then, once I enjoy reading it, Â means another whole day, even two, just reading from beginning to end (or latest post). That’s what happened when I stumbled upon 101 Grams of (Eye) Candy. I was instantly captured by first and foremost: Â the clean format, of her blog. Second: Â Her never ending practical tips and tricks on Organizing, Decorating and Home Solutions (such a sucker for these topics!)
Once I adore a blog, I instantly try to contact the blogger (friendly I am, right) and touch base, exchange views on all sorts of stuff. Â And in the process, become friends . This is how I have come to know the blogger, Â the wit behind this super awesome blog. Â And to my opinion, Â She and her Blog, Â too shameful not to share. Â So, I wasted no time and jumbled some Q & A for for me (and you) to get to know the blogger (and yes her blog)Â Enjoy…
aMoT: What is your name? EC: Pat
EC: Â I was inspired by the many blogs I read!Â Suddenly, I felt like I was talking to myself, putting captions on things I see.Â I was hearing them in my mind!Â I knew I needed an outlet.Â It took a year before I finally did it.
aMoT:Â Â Â What do you blog about?Â Â Â Â EC:Â Stuff I love.
Â aMoT: Share with me your personal life EC: married and I have four kids all girls!We have 2 turtles and 2 dogs.
aMoT: what is your typical day like? any routines you want to share? On school days, I wake up at 5am, give my 2 younger kids their baths. (I do this everyday, itâ€™s like my bonding time with them) I then check on everybody before they leave for school. When they leave, there ’s a bit of alone time for me ( I squeeze in blogging and watching a.m. shows). Â By 9:30 my husband and I leave for work, thatâ€™s a 5-minute drive to our office From there, in between, I go to client calls, maybe do the grocery and some errands.Â If Iâ€™m lucky I escape to pick up my kids, and then have an excuse to visit the mall ( the freedom!), but most of the time, we are at work in the office until 6pm. Then back at home and do the usual dinner, homework, and more internet surfing (guilty!).
a.M.oT: what is your day job ? EC: I ‘m in the printing business. Â Soon, when Im ready, Â I will blog a little more about my work.
a.M.oT:Â Â What is the ONE THING you want people to know about you and why? Â Â Â Â EC:Â Iâ€™m simple and practical (oops thatâ€™s 2).Â Haha, I donâ€™t know why,Â so they wonâ€™t expect something else?
a.M.oT: Â What is your weakness . What is your strength? Â Â Â EC: Weakness â€“ I think too much.Â Strength â€“ I can get things done â€“for myself, for my family, for my work.
a.M.oT: Â What is the best part of your home? Â EC:Â Â Bedroom
a.M.oT: Â What is your most favorite post and why?Â Â EC:Â My â€˜Paul Smith Thoughtsâ€™ post.Â His points just clicked with the life Iâ€™m living.
a.M.oT: Â What are you lusting for now ; aÂ material thing, Â a trip, Â a spa, anything? Â Â Â EC: Â Hmm, not really lusting, but waiting for the right bagâ€”anything YSL, or a Sophia Coppola LV.Â A chandelier for my living room.Â Iâ€™m dreaming of a tufted sofa for my future home.Â
Â a.M.oT: Â How do you spend your ME TIME? Â Â Â Â Â EC: Â I like shopping alone.Â I love reading my magazines and books on slow Sunday mornings.Â I spend alone time in my office too, trying to be creative, doing my own personal projects and print stuff for myself and my friends.
