Monday Meet and Greet: Arizona Mama

Your name: Nancy aka fancygrlnancy

Where do you blog? Arizona Mama



How did you decide on what to name your blog? I was having a hard time with it. I asked a few bloggy friends and got some great ideas. Arizona Mama was suggested by Anna from The Baby Store Plus, and I liked it immediately. It’s simple and really identifies that I am in Arizona, and I am a mom.

Tell us a little bit about you... I am a mom to an almost three-and-a-half-year-old boy. I started my family a little later in my thirties. My wonderful husband is eight years older than me, and he has a daughter who will be twenty-four soon. We are currently TTC our second together. I work full-time in a Head Start Program. Currently, I am a curriculum training specialist, and I train the teachers and mentor them. I was a Head Start teacher in the classroom for over ten years.

Tell us five of your favorite things:
1. my son
2. my husband
3. my mom
4. chocolate
5. winning giveaways

5 of your least favorite things:
1. smokers
2. liars
3. cheaters
4. peas
5. paying bills

When and why did you start blogging? I started blogging just under two years ago. I honestly started because I was reading blogs and entering giveaways. I wanted to get all those great extra entries for having the buttons and blogging. I also wanted to keep kind of a live journal of my son’s life. I have been really bad about not writing in the baby book, so I guess my blog is kind of pieces for the baby book.

What do you blog about? I blog about my life with my son. I also do many product reviews and giveaways.

What does your family think of your blog? Do they read it? Most like the idea. My mom reads it and even stared entering giveaways. My husband reads it when it’s a personal post. I know my brother-in-law and my aunt have looked at it, but not sure how much they read it.

When do you find the time to blog? I blog in the evenings while I should be sleeping … lol! And nap time on the weekends.

What is your favorite blog post ever? I don’t know about favorite posts, but recently I started a Thursday’s Thoughts with Jayden, and I write some of the funny things my son says. He is so smart and cute. Here are a couple:

What is your favorite item you ever reviewed? I have reviewed some great items! Two stick out that I love for both the product and the great people who work there: Picture Keeper and Ova Cue Fertility Monitor.

What brand or product would you really like to work with/review? I would LOVE to review The Learning Tower, and I’d also like Vtech and Leap Frog.

What are your favorite blogs to read? I like and read many blogs ... Here are a couple:
The Jacobsen Family
The Mommy Times
