Pregnancy Pregnancy

Challenge-find someone you have something in common with

Posted by   + Show Post

Today I issue you each a challenge- Find someone (or even a couple someones), you have something in common with in this post.

All you need to do is tell us about you, then read the other replies and 'Quote' and 'Like' replies from the moms you have something in common with.

Maybe you are due in the same month, maybe you share the same name, maybe you have something the same in your backgrounds, whatever it is, let's see what you have in common.


I'll start-

My name is Jenn-wife to a wonderful man for the past 13 1/2 years. I'm mom to three kids- Benjamin is 9, Levi is 7 and Rebekah is 1. We live in central PA with our black lab mix-Belle. 

In our spare time we like to camp, hike, ride bikes, enjoy campfires, board games and wii.

I also enjoy sewing and reading when I'm not spending time with my family.

I grew up not far from where we live now and I have two sisters-I'm the middle brat (my sisters will agree, lol). My parents have been married 44 years and are more in love now than they were back then. 

I've previously worked in several retail and grocery stores, as a teller in a bank and as an administrative assistant for a cemetery. 


Are you up for the challenge? It's your turn :)

I like reading too :)

Quoting LaughingTattoo:

Im Paula, married to a wonderful man 18 years my senior :). I have 2 beautiful girls, Adia (6) and Izzy (4)from a previous relationship. My husband and I are expecting Evageline on May 21st. He will be a first time father at age 48 so hes pretty damn excited. Dh is in grad school for Sociology and I am a stay at home mom working at opening my own restaurant. Dh and I love music....from punk to old school rap, to jazz, to rocka/psychobilly to folk. We love to dance. We also both love Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. And we have a mutual love of body modifications and thrift store shopping/picking


I personally enjoy reading, cooking, pin-up photography (model and collector), comic books, gardening, anything outdoors, and beer/wine.

 LOVE Tim Burton!

Quoting Pandapanda:

I'm Amber- wife to Nate with two beautiful children (ages 2.5yrs and 15mo)  and one on the way this summer. 

I was a student midwife (on hold until the kids are older) but I still feel very deeply about midwifery and advocate for healthy births whenever possible. I try to learn something new every day that will help me offer more loving services to patients in the future! 

I love most Tim Burton movies, I love 80's rock (especially with female vocalists!), I don't like anything outdoorsy because of bugs, and I love to swim during the summer.

I made a wrap to wear my 2nd baby :)

Quoting louzannalady:

I am Rachel. OP, I have a Benjamin, too! : ) I knit, crochet and quilt. I have made my own wraps for wearing my babies. I EBF my first child 13.5 months, but he lost interest because I was pregnant. I am EBF our second child, who is eight months, we'll see how long he nurses. : ) I did not have car from August until taxes came back at the beginning of Feb, so I went a lil crazy... : ) I advocate for women to have informed births (not just natural births, but births that they know the benefits and risks of each procedure and are confident with every aspect of each procedure they consent to). I was born in Louisiana and lived in Washington state many years. Now, I live in Texas! : )

Hello ladies! :)
my name is Maya, married to Matthew (we were known as m&m, lol) for 7yrs in June, together for 9.

I have two boys (Anthony 14 and Donovan 4, with the third and last boy, Julian Michael coming in July)

I moved here to Indiana two years ago so my husband could b near his mother but am moving closer to home-Pennsylvania before this baby comes. Im so homesick I can't stand it. Lol.

I am a sahm for the time being but am itching to go back to work after this lo is born as a medical assistant. I miss working so very much for many reasons.

We love to swim and do it at least twice a week. I love reading and taking pictures-nothing serious just with any camera, most times its my phone but I get some good ones-lol. I like to do puzzles as well and am trying to make my first scrapbook.

I am the oldest of my fathers kids and the middle of my mothers kids-if that makes any sense. My parents were never married to each other. So I have a HUGE family and can't wait to be back near them.

Its nice to meet u all. :)
