Making New Friends To Rock With...

DRUM ROLL PLEASE! The winner of the giveaway hosted by Brittany, House of Sorensens & 41 West Designs is

Comment #59: Fashion Family and Facts who said Follow house of Sorensens blog! GFC is Kelsey Vigil from familyfashionandfacts :)


Hello friends! Tricia is guest posting for me today, and so I'm over here entertaining you all. I am glad to be here!! Allow me to introduce myself! My name is Brittany.

People think I look like I'm 14.
I'm not...I'm 15. (kidding.)
I am a stay-at-home mom to one rambunctious little boy named Jack,
also known as Jackson, JT, Jack Jack, Jackers, Baby, Action Man, and (Turd Face.)
My husband is a political science major and consequently I hate talking about politics.
I hear enuff of that stuff every day.
I blog during naptime (& while JT is watching Cars) over at House of Sorensens.
I have lots of fun tutorials, play date ideas, recipes, and guest bloggers over on my blog all the time. It's a party!

I am super excited (!!) to be guest posting at I Heart Rock N Roll today!! I really do heart rock & roll. And crafty things too. I am probably one of the five women here in Utah who didn't pop out of the womb with a sewing machine in hand, but I have been able to establish my own kind of crafty, sans-sewing machine. I am a nifty sign maker.

I just opened my shop, 41 West Designs, and I am loving it. Like I mentioned above, I can't sew. But I have always had a huge desire to be creative! So I decided to bust out the man-tools and cut some wood, paint it, sand it, and call it art. It is a lot of work, it is very tedious and time consuming, but I am lucky I have something else to occupy my free time with other than... *cough - Facebook - cough*. I have a hobby that I love.

I hope you love my hobby too, because I am hosting an amazing GIVEAWAY for you guys!!

This Is It!

Hi my lovelies!

So, I am totally enjoying the blog world! It is so much fun!

I am working hard on getting guest bloggers, giveaways, sponsors etc lined up!
So far so good! :) I have 3 great gals! You are going to love them as much as I do!
Right now, I have been posting on Mondays but starting next week Monday will be reserved for my guest bloggers! Yay!

Wednesdays will be focused on another passion of mine - you already know I love rock and crafts! But one thing I also love (which you won't be able to tell from my picture) is health and fitness! I really love sharing about my goals in the hopes it will keep me motivated and possibly motivate some of you too! This can be a day of sharing workout ideas, deals on workout gear, recipes, WHATEVER you want regarding health and fitness! This blog is about us not me - I don't want it to be just 100's of pictures of me!

Day #1
This is the ultimate accountability for me! <GULP>  No going back! So, stay tuned for next Wednesday! Are you ready to rock!?! I am!
We are women! Hear us roar!
(If there are any men out there following you can roar too!)

Peace & Love

Tricia L.
