Having Karen from Surviving Motherhood here has been amazing!!  I am loving getting to get to know her face to face… which, I gotta tell ya, is exactly like she is on her blog.  Precious!

We still have the Moms Night Out event tonight in Burnsville, which Karen is the keynote speaker at, but last night we had a few minutes and were able to get the vlog done!

Let preface this by saying… I REALLY dislike seeing myself on the screen.  I think, "Is that how I look?  Do I really make that face all the time?  Stop fidgeting!"

So!  I picked three of the questions submitted and we answered them Karens hotel room last night.

I have NO makeup on.  I did not comb my hair.  And my eyes look strangely alien like.  (for the record, they are blue, but you'd never be able to tell that!)

But hanging out with Karen is a huge blessing and I love it.  Thank you so much Karen!

Without further ado..

Share with your friends!
