Today on the blog, I’m featuring Erika from A Little Bit of Everything Blog. She is so sweet and down to earth. She blogs about her adorable family, her life in Texas, fashion, and other fun things. She’s one of my favorite bloggers, and I’ve been a loyal reader for years, and wanted to share her with all of you! Without further ado:
Hi!! I’m Erika, a Christian, a wife, mama to three, a planner by heart, Rodan and Fields’ consultant, a lover of all things girly, and I blog over at A Little Bit of Everything! Feel free to invite me to go shopping or get a pedicure ANY time! 🙂 I was so excited when Julie asked me to share with you guys today. I am by no means an expert on any of these things, but I love sharing what works for me.
I started blogging in 2008! I had several friends who had blogs and they encouraged me to do it. That was pre-kids, so I hardly EVER blogged. I remember them giving me a hard time about never posting and my response was always, “Do you want me to take pictures of Tab and I watching television every night?”. hahaha! Once I had kids it was the perfect way for my family who lives far away to stay updated. Recently I shifted to include a more “lifestyle” approach. I’m loving having my own little space to share “a little bit of everything”.
The simple moments are definitely the most rewarding….like us all playing a board game at night and everyone is laughing (and getting along..ha!). The most challenging part is teaching them EVERYTHING! haha! Seriously…it’s a little stressful thinking about every little thing you have to remember to teach them.
I can’t think of anything, but I’m sure I do a lot of things my mom did.
I always wanted three kids. My grandparents had three girls and at holidays their house was always full of people during the holidays. I just always imagined having three.
We both have the same values and beliefs. Our marriage is based on our faith. We both spend time in prayer and in the word daily. I can’t imagine how hard it would be to “do life” with someone who didn’t have the same faith as me.
I love the beach OR maybe I should say I love a warm climate with a view of the beach and a nice lounge chair by the pool. 🙂
So many things make me happy!! I’m going to go for super simple in my list…
1. A quiet bubble bath at the end of a long night
2. Board games with my kiddos
3. Chips and salsa
4. Family Getaways
5. Hearing my kiddos sing a worship song
