This Should Be Fun!!

On February 9th, Apple Juice & Milk will celebrate it's 1 year Blogaversary! I can hardly believe it has been a year since I sat down one day and decided to start a blog. I remember writing my first entry, having absolutely no idea what I was doing or why I was doing it. I just wanted a place to fuss about crap. I created Apple Juice and Milk.

Have you ever wondered how I came up with the name of my blog? Well, when I begin creating my blog, I wanted a title that symbolized Bree, because she was after all, who this blog was about. At the time, Bree was a "juice-a-holic", and addicted to milk. She was also obsessed with "goldfish crackers", among other things. I tried out many different titles, including "Goldfish Crumbs", until I finally landed on Apple Juice & Milk. I thought it was cute, and although now, Bree doesn't drink much juice...I can't seem to bring myself up to changing the title.

Since that beautiful day in February, when I launched this blog; I have written about everything from family pets, to crazy In-Laws, to family vacations. I went from absolutely no one reading my blog at all, to having 64 followers! I would have never guessed that someone would be interested in what I have to say, but I am so glad they are! I have made so many wonderful new bloggy friends, that I have grown to love.

For the last week or so, I have been trying to think of something special to do on my Blogaversary, and it finally dawned on me today. I am giving you the chance to ask me anything, anything at all, about anything you want and I swear to you that I will answer every single question...no matter what it is!

So, from now until February 7, I am taking your questions. Remember, it can be anything! Please, please, flood my inbox with your questions! I'm excited!

You can send me your questions in an email, or you can just leave them here on this post as a comment, either way you have two weeks before all questions need to be submitted...so go ahead and start thinking of a good one (or two)! Don't worry, I'll remind you...a lot.

I love the inspiration behind your blog title. Very sweet. Our kids truly are inspirations in many ways. I have to think about the question... I will email you.
Meanwhile, I hope you and your family have a great weekend

Congrats on your almost-blogoversary!!

Okay...Questions...let's see...Okay:

If you had to pick ONE characteristic or action that made you want to marry Paul, what would it be?

What does being a young mother mean to you/How do you feel about it?

What are your future plans for blogging-specifically what role do you want your blog to play in your personal life and what do you want your blog to accomplish in "the outside world"?

I can't think of one right now. I'll have to think about it. Write reminders on your posts until then or else I will forget!

Julia said...

hmmm...

you are pretty young to be the mom of a 2 year old... was she planned?

How did you meet your hubby?

what's one thing about your hubby that drives you nuts?

and one thing about him that you absolutely LOVE??

Ian said...

Haha I'm going to send you some questions just you wait. And I'm going to steal this idea! ;) But I'll credit you of course

Miss. Candy said...

What a great way to come up with your name!! Love it!!! Amazing how fast they change what they like! Have a great weekend!!!

Happy almost-Blogoversary. :) I want to know where that gorgeous photo of your family on the beach was taken!

Helene said...

Wow, 1-year already! I figured that was how you got the title of your blog...my kids love juice and milk!! Maybe the name of my blog should've been "Poop, Bugs and All Gross Things Under the Sun". That would pretty much describe my kids.

Anyway, hmmmmm, lemme think:

What are the advantages and disadvantages of being a young mother (I only ask this because I'm 40-yrs old and started motherhood rather late so I'm honestly curious)?

Would you ever consider homeschooling your daughter?

Any plans for more kids?

Happy almost 1 year blogoversary! I'm a new reader.

Let's see...I could ask you so many questions because I barely know anything yet How about, "What is some advice you would give for a successful marriage?"

I'm getting married in a few weeks, so I have all wedding on the brain, all the time.

Katherine said...

I love your Blog name. It's perfect and meaningful even if she's moved on from her juice-a-holic days!

Kiera said...

Ok, the only reason I feel like I have the liberty to ask you this is because I'm a young mom and was pregnant before I was married. Were you? Tell your story, if you don't mind :)

hope that wasn't too ballsy.
