Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award


My first Award!!! Thank you Sweet Tezzy for nominating me!!! Seriously, I am about to get a teddy bear, just so I can name it Tezzy 🙂

sisterhood of the world bloggers awardUnlike me, Tezzy is a fashionista on the other side of my world! Her chocolate face mask shows how much self control she has, because when chocolate is near my face, I eat it. This Sweet Lady from the EAU, is definitely a must follow…did I mention she has recipes? Oh Yeah! Check out The Tezzy Files.

As a nominee of this award, Tezzy has sent me a set of questions. 1..2..

In one word, how would you like your readers to describe your blog?

Jahaira: Relatable

Which is your most favorite among your blog posts? Why?

Jahaira: I am about 3 weeks fresh into blogging, so I am really just trying to figure it out. But if I had to pick one… I cannot just pick one. I love everyone that includes my family the most. They are my inspiration, my heart, so writing about them, makes me the most happy.

What/Who inspires most of your blog posts?

Jahaira: My Husband. He is the most amazing person in my world. And of course my boys, they added a special meaning to my life.

What do you aspire to accomplish this year?

Jahaira: I do not know, really. It’s in my title, I’m figuringitoutmommy. I am trying to figure out what are my passions outside of my family, I know I would like to help people somehow, but I want to love what I do. Also, I do want to finish the book I started last November.

What do you aspire to learn this year?

Jahaira: Everything, as much as I can possibly learn! I am like a sponge ready to suck up knowledge. But I need to learn to manage time. I am not good at it at all. So if I learn to do that, I’d call it a successful year.

What is your most favorite book? Why?

Jahaira: I love Stuart Woods, Stone Barrington Novels, My Grandpa in-law told me I had to read it, and I love it. Grandpa passed on five years ago, so when I read a new book, it feels almost like a gift from him every time.

What is your most favorite quote?

Jahaira: I don’t know if this would be considered a quote but it’s from my boys… “I love you”

What is the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?

Jahaira: I moved from the country to the city with only $200 in my pocket after I paid for 1st month’s rent on a studio apartment with no job. All by myself, I walked looking for a job and I trusted a complete stranger, who walked me to where he worked and I was hired. I am forever grateful!

If you can be a superhero, what is your superpower?

Jahaira: Teleporting! I would totally be by an ocean somewhere right now!

Who is your female role model?

Jahaira: My Aunt Lu, her name should really be Love. Really, that is what she is LOVE. Every time I see her is like rainbows and sunshine, I kid you not. It is not just me who feels that way, everyone that meets her falls in love with her. Definitely my Aunt Love, I mean Lu!
