Featured Reader: Let me introduce you to.....

La Dolce Vita

Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend, we had a cold and very snowy weekend which is great if you like to snowmobile(I don't)! I am so excited to introduce you to this week's featured reader, she is funny, pretty, popular and super sweet could you ask for anything more? I am very excited to introduce you to the very lovely Jenni of Jiggety Jigg. Jenni and I met at one of my favorite social networks and became fast friends. Jenni is a must read and a daily read on my list for sure. I know you are sure to love Jenni as much as I do. Here is one of my favorite posts.

Name:

Jenni of Jiggety Jigg!


Family:

My husband Doug and I have been married for 12 years. We have two sons. Douglas who is about to turn 9 and is our little computer genius. And Jack who is 7 and loves action figures and video games. They are totally different boys…but the very best of friends!

How did you start blogging?

I became a fan of Dooce several years ago, and when MySpace was the “in” thing, I started my own blog there. I wasn’t very faithful to it, but I had some fun. Then this past summer I just had the idea one day to start one up again on Blogger! I have blogged every single day since!

What is your parenting philosophy?

I think my parenting philosophy is o pick my battles, and always encourage my boys to be the best they can be. I am not a spanker or a yeller... I use my "teacher voice" with them a lot at home and that seems to work.

You will never find me without.....

My iPhone, water, lipgloss, and the knowledge of where the closest Dunkin’ Donuts is from any given location!

6. Day job:

I am teacher! I have my certification in Early Childhood Education which qualifies me to teach Preschool-3rd grade in the public schools. I have taught both 1st and 2nd, and I am currently teaching third. I also have my Group Fitness Certification through AFAA and I teach step and hi/lo aerobics classes at a local gym.

Favorite Stuff:

Music: Dancey groovy pop stuff!

Food: I am a VERY picky eater and I have a lot of food allergies. Mostly, I eat junk.

Tv/ Movies: Reality TV, soap operas, and sitcoms. Mostly, I watch junk, too!

Reading: I love historical fiction books and I loved the Twilight series.

If you had to wear a T-shirt with your favorite saying on it what would it be?

I Am So Bogging About This.

Favorite stores to shop:

Target, Ann Taylor Loft, Sephora, Old Navy, DSW and TJ Maxx!

Wonderful choice!! Jenni is always a go to for a laugh when I need it, and with two small children that would be every hour, on the hour.

P.S. dig through Jenni's archives to find her Santa Madness posts this past December.

You will not be disappointed. A little scared and scarred, but NOT disappointed.

I never knew you taught something athletic, Jen. I am not sure we can still be friends... Just lidding. I love even if you are healthy. I guess. sigh.

Dawn said...

I love Jenni! She's so real and down to earth.

Plus, we have several things in common. I'm an early childhood teacher as well. Well, I was before I was a SAHM. I loved teaching kdg. and first grades.

I love TJ Maxx,the Twilight series, junk food, blogging...etc. You get the picture. I think we must have been twins separated at birth - only she is teeny tiny and I am not. I must have taken after our father's side of the family! ROFL!
