It is with great honor and gratitude that I am writing this post today. A fellow blogger, Debbie Dagnese, or as her Instagram followers best know her, @Princessdeb14 was kind enough to nominate me for this award. She is a fashion blogger with swagger, she has been blogging since 2009 and working in the Fashion Industry for years. Debbie also has some college education to back up that swag in the Fashion Biz and a style like no other. If you’re interested in keeping up with the latest Fashion trends be sure to keep up with her at 


As part of this nomination, Debbie has asked me some questions to answer in this post, Here I go!


Q1. What is the funniest prank you have ever pulled?

I’ll admit, I am not much of a prankster, I am more the type that feels bad for people being pranked. That being said, I did have to carry my weight when I was younger having three brothers around. I’d have to say, the funniest prank I ever pulled was putting a bit of food coloring on one of my brother’s bars of soap (yes, we used those back then haha) and waiting for him to freak out when he turned colors!


Q2. If you could have witnessed ANYTHING in history, what would it be?

It may sound strange, but I would have loved to witness Florence Nightingale in action. She is known as the Pioneer of nursing, and is responsible for most practices today.


Q3. If you could be any celebrity for the day, who would it be?

Not to sound boring, but I don’t think I would want to be a celebrity for a day. Not much of a fan girl.


Q4. What is your favorite childhood memory?

My favorite childhood memory is actually loaded with many occurrences. We are a family of Italian heritage and our lifelong tradition is Sunday dinners with the entire family. We still carry this out to this day. Homemade pasta and good conversations sitting around the dinner table while the kids are off playing together.


Q5. What is your worst habit?

Oh, that’s easy! I have a terrible, no good, very bad for me addiction to RedBull!


Q6. What is your favorite TV commercial?

Where the little boy throws airplane letters over the fence into the old man’s yard for his father serving in the military, and the old man delivers them and sends back the little boy’s father’s responses. Just love that!


Q7. What is the strangest thing you have ever eaten?

Hmm, Sufrite for sure. It’s an old Italian heritage stew, and that’s putting it nicely. Basically I ate Cow’s heart. Wasn’t a happy camper when they explained what it was as it sit in my mouth. haha


Q8. Who would you like to stuck in an elevator with and why?

MYSELF! As a mom of five, I’d just like some time to myself every now and then…sorry kids!


Q9. Where is your dream vacation?

Italy! Growing up Italian, with family members that could speak the language and tell stories of where their parents came from it’s really all you can dream about. Just to see it in person!


Q10. The most obvious question- how did you start blogging?

I wish there were a short answer for this, I will try my best to sum it up. Several years ago, during a military transfer (husband is USCG) I chose to spend the transition time with my parents in CT. Due to some unfortunate circumstances we, while pregnant with our second child, chose to take in my little niece and nephew who were only 12 months and 2 years of age at the time. Shortly after our second was born and jumping from 1 child to 4, we learned I was pregnant again, bringing us to five kids, ages ranging from newborn-6yrs.


I was a nurse that chose to stay home with the kids at this point and I found that I learned a lot of good tricks and ways of getting through all of this with a touch of my nursing background. It wasn’t until I had received praise, shock and awe that I said to myself, well wouldn’t it be nice if you could relay some of what’s gotten me to balance the chaos to other parents that could use it.


From there, it became a passion, maybe more of an obsession haha and here I am!



Thank You, Debbie, for nominating me for this amazing blogging award. I feel honored.
