Happy Monday friends! Where did last week go? Monday's are always fun at La Dolce Vita, since I have the pleasure of introducing a very special reader of the week. I am very excited to introduce you to Stacy of Stacy's Random Thoughts. I can't even remember where I met Stacy but we truly became fast friends. Do you know when you read a blog and say wow I can really relate to this person, this is how I feel about Stacy's blog. Stacy speaks from the heart on many different random things as her blog is titled. I love that it is random that way you never know what to expect. Stacy is surely a daily read and you have to read this post about her miracle baby. I was truly touched! Go grab a cup of joe and get to know Stacy, you can thank me later for introducing you to Stacy!

How did you start blogging?
I actually started my Blog outside of Blogger in January 2008, when I jumped on the bandwagon to try to save one of my favorite shows ‘Journeyman’. I was clueless as to what ‘blogging’ was all about, otherwise I would have been a bit more aggressive in my posts (instead of once a month or so). Although I don’t think it would have mattered, as NBC already had their minds made up about canceling that show before they finished airing all 13 episodes. Over the summer I started getting interesrws in reading all the blogs in the blogosphere, and thought it was a great idea to keep in touch with all my friends and family who live so far away – it would alleviate sending long and multiple email messages to so many, this way I can get them all updated in one post! ;) I also wanted to make sure I documented ‘special moments’ of my Little Princess – so she can see them in later years and either be impressed at how cool she was, or embarrassed by being a dork. Some good blackmail material for when she starts dating! ;)
What is your parenting philosophy?
We are big on teaching
You will never find me without......
My laptop! ;) Of course when I go out, it’s usually my purse (which seems to get bigger each year as the Princess Nagger grows…) with the necessities – cell phone, wallet, lip gloss, snacks for the Princess Nagger, the occasional odd toy she slips in there for safe keeping…etc. ;)
My first and ‘main’ job is Domestic Goddess! I used to be a Marketing Manager in the Corporate World but when our Miracle Girl made her arrival, I ditched stuffy suits for jeans and comfy clothes… ;) I feel that it is an honor and privilege to be able to stay home with her and never miss all those ‘firsts’. Second to that, I do Web Design at www.sassydesigns.org. I have a small client base at the moment that I’ve created websites for and do their monthly maintenance. I also have a crafty side over at www.savannah-haven.org and get inundated with orders for custom gift baskets and homemade Kahlua around the holidays, chocolate covered cherries for Valentine’s Day. I also make custom dolls and restore composition dolls over at www.sassydolls.com – though that particular site has been put on the back shelf since the Princess Nagger was born, and will remain so until I can get my craft room set up to accommodate all the things I need to create without having to dig through multiple boxes stacked in the attic. ;) Between parenting, blogging and my SassyDesigns and
Music: I love all kinds of music – it all depends on my mood, but my first love is New Country.
Food: My favorite is Seafood – having grown up in the
Tv/ Movies: This list would be to incredibly long…heh, heh! I have a lot of favorite TV shows, thank goodness for my DVR! Some of my top favorites are The Mentalist, Bones, House, Desperate Housewives, Brothers and Sisters, Ghost Whisperer, Numb3rs, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Criminal Minds… I rarely watch reality, but I’m hooked on The Bachelor, American Idol, Kitchen Nightmares and Hell’s Kitchen.
If you had to wear a T-shirt with your favorite saying on it what would it be?
Sassy Mama, of course! ;)
Favorite stores to shop at:
We don’t have a lot of great ones where I live – so I do a lot of shopping online…but I do love me some Target, Nordstrom’s, TJ Maxx, Kohl’s and Macy’s…
Other good stuff from Stacy:
Dance like no one's watching...
Love like you'll never be hurt...
Sing like no one's listening...
And live like heaven on earth.
