I "Mustache" you a question!

So, I open my Instagram last night - - and I notice that Heather @ What the heck.... Why not? mentioned me in a comment. I love reading all of Heather's adventures. She is an amazing runner, and I really aspire to run with such zest as she does. She is an inspiration. Her posts are witty, and always enjoyable. If you don't know her already, go check her out, you will not be disappointed!

So, I was tagged to do the following post:

I hope you read through, and enjoy reading this, as much as I enjoyed answering!

    (for the record my real name is Jillian... my middle is Kateri)
  • Jilly Bean - this is what my dad has always called me
  • Beaner - nickname of a nickname *See Above*
  • Missus Mom - I write about my son, as Emry, it is his middle name - But, his friends would always want to now what to call me - and it ended up being Missus Mom.
  • Miss Jillian - this is a new one for me, my friends kids have started calling me this. I think it's better than them addressing me by my first name, but, it's still weird.

4. Four Books I recommend

12. Four things I am always saying
  • "The Struggle is Real" - I've been saying that a lot recently, and it has been true each time it has been used.
  • "Just saying" - Usually when I'm trying to make a point.
  • "What had happened was..." - when I'm trying to explain something (justify it) to Klay
  • "Sit down on your butt, not your legs" - To my son, who never officially sits in a chair
This was SO much fun, thank you Heather for tagging me!!!!
