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 :)

My name is Amanda, wife to Beaux. We will be married 2 years in October, 2 weeks before our first baby is due!

I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana .. and fit about ZERO stereotypes that come with the city. I like to be home, watch movies, and play with my three fur babies (2 dachshunds and 1 basset hound). I have a Bachlor's Degree in Early Childhood Education, but I am current a housewife and plan to be a SAHM until my children start school.

I have 1 older brother, who is already over protective of my unborn baby :)

I'm not sure I have anything in common with you but wanted to say that I love that your brother is already overprotective. I bet he'll be a great uncle. Does he have any children of his own yet?

Wow you have three 2 year olds. I'm sure they keep you very busy. 

We'd like to adopt a child but we're not sure if the time is right to or not. Could I ask what made you decide to adopt?

What kind of t-shirts do you make? Show us a picture.

Quoting 2timezthefun:

Where in Pennsylvania?

Quoting mrsevewat1:

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. :)
