Since I am a PNR addict, I couldn’t live without the insight of Stephanie & Athenna of Paranormal Haven! Not only do they school me on my favorite genre, they also help me get to know other bloggers with their fun feature, Beyond the Blog. Oh, and I can’t thank them enough for their Pictures of the Week feature either! So yeah, I thought it was beyond time to learn about them a little better.
First, we want to give a big THANK YOU to Missie for inviting us to participate in her feature. So happy to be here
What do I do when I’m not reading? Well, nothing all that exciting. I couldn’t even come up with a made up story that would make me sound more interesting.
I work full time at a hotel as a front desk agent. This can actually be pretty cool at times because I get the chance to meet people from all over the world and since my hotel is a smaller one, I’m able to talk to them about where they’re from. In addition to working, I go to school part time. I’m working towards getting my AA in Business Administration. When I do get some free time, I’m usually doing things for my grandma. I love spending time with her. She’s not the bake you cookies and knit you a sweater type. Oh no, she’s the ‘I’ll flip you off if you try to take my damn picture’ and the ‘hey, did I tell you why I can’t drink tequila anymore?’ kind of granny and I’m very thankful for that.
When I’m not at work/school/or on some adventure with the old woman (she knows I call her that), I’m with a friend taking in the latest movie or out eating. I also like to spend time with Athenna’s kids. I love them like they’re my own and refuse to except that my babies, her twins, are in first grade and that her youngest is about to start kindergarten. That just doesn’t make any sense to me!!
Let me livin’ this post up a bit by telling you about what I’ll be doing when I’m not reading in May. I’ll be in New York City! I’m beyond excited for this trip. I’ll be spending 5 days in The Big Apple and I’m looking forward to all the wonderful food I’ve heard so much about. Pizza, sandwiches, pretzels, hot dogs, cheese cake, Italian food…..my pants are getting tighter just thinking about it. I’ve been told there’s a statue I should see and some park I need to go to but those will have to wait till after I’ve visited all the restaurants on my list. ~Stephanie
Well lets see, what do I do when i am not reading? I think the better question is, how do I find time to read?
I’m a mother of 5. I have a 14 year old, a 12 year old, twin 6 year olds and a 4 year old. They pretty much run things. Other than that, my life is pretty normal and boring. I wish I could say that I do something cool like I moonlight as a undercover stripper in a cool werewolf bar that’s owned by a sexy vampire but sadly, that’s just not the case. It’s the normal life for us.
If I’m not at work full time (yes, I still work with all these kids) I’m taking the two girls to dance. They dance for a competitive hip hop dance team. The two youngest boys are starting t-ball in March and will be having games twice a week. The older boy is the easiest. He doesn’t do much but at 14, you are running them back and forth to their friends and if they are like my boy, to Game Workshop in the mall to pay War Hammer. Whatever that is.
If and when I can get away from the madness of my kids, I also enjoy going to the movies with friends. Of course, I always make time for watching Supernatural with Steph each week. Maybe one day when I finally get some free time, I will start the book I’ve been playing writing. ~Athenna
Stephanie, your old woman sounds like a riot! I think I’d enjoy spending time with her too, I just have to make sure to share my tequila, which is a real hardship for me, letmetellya! And the only reason why I want to visit New York is for the Food, so I’m so jealous of you right now. I hope you get as stuffed as you can. Besides, you can always walk off the extra pounds by visiting those famous landmarks.
Athenna, I bow down to you woman! 5 kids! WowOhWow! Well, they are adorable, and I bet it’s super fun to try to keep up with them. And yes, I’d wish I could say I moonlight as a fangbanger, but sadly no. If only Real Life could suck in a good way, right? :[
Thank you ladies for taking the time to stop by today!
