Let me introduce you to.......

La Dolce Vita


Happy Monday friends! Can you believe it is February already! You know what Monday means, I have the pleasure of introducing you to one of my fabulous readers. It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to Shannon of Welcome to the NutHouse. Shannon is one funny gal, with a beautiful family and is a mama that you should follow, if you aren't already. I love the title of Shannon's Blog, Welcome to the NutHouse I can so relate. I won't spoil Shannon's answers but it is no wonder we follow each other we have a lot in common. We like the same shows and shop at the same stores. Grab your beverage of choice and get to know my friend Shannon.


Name:


Shannon of Welcome to the NutHouse



Family:

I’ve been married to my husband, Shane, for 11 years. We have two daughters, H (age 8) and M (almost 6).

How did you start blogging?

My good friend, Angie, had been blogging for a few months and I began reading her blog. One day Shane said to me, “You spend so much time reading Angie’s blog, why don’t you start one yourself?” I gave it some thought… and decided to take the plunge!




What is your parenting philosophy?

Life is busy and messy… but try and find joy in each day. Time goes by way too fast, so enjoy the moments you have together while you can!

You will never find me without...... lip gloss.

Day job:

I’ve been a SAHM for almost two years… while it’s the hardest job I’ve ever had, I am very grateful that I’m able to be home with my girls. Some days it does seem that I am busier now than when I was working, but I really wouldn’t have it any other way!

Favorite Stuff:

Music: I have a very wide range of favorites when it comes to music… Sam Cooke, Green Day, ABBA, The Police, Josh Groban, Puccini, The Beatles… I could go on and on and on…

Food: Italian, Chinese, Mexican… and nothing beats good ol’ Southern cooking: fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, fried okra, cornbread, mac & cheese… mmmmm!

TV/ Movies: Lost, Grey’s Anatomy, The Amazing Race, Rescue Me, The Office, Survivor (yeah, I watch a lot of TV)… my favorite movies include Roman Holiday, Batman Begins (and pretty much anything else with Christian Bale in it) and Steel Magnolias

Reading: A few of my favorite authors are Nora Roberts, Janet Evanovich, Sue Grafton… and Stephanie Meyer (Yes!… I’m one of those Twilight-addicts)

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

I love carbs.

Favorite stores to shop at:

Target, Old Navy, The Children’s Place

Now be sure to leave Shannon some comment LOVE!

Being a fellow Lost, Grey's Anatomy and Twilight addict, I truly love Shannon and her blog.

Someday we are going to party together in the mountains of Tennessee, for certain. With other various southern bloggers, who will make fun of the Yankee from Ohio...
