Our second gtkY is Elle from elle keeps moving. I found her blog through another blogger and I have never regretted that click! Elle is the mother and wife of a beautiful family. I mean it. Her blog is full of funny and sweet "mom moments" and I am totally keeping notes for future reference! Plus, some love to her husband and her own baby line. Enjoy getting to know my friend, Elle!
Why did you start your blog?
It sounds cliché, but I was pregnant with my first baby and thought it was a nice way to keep in touch with family far away.
What is your name? (Or what do you wish you were named?)
Elle Rowley. Actually, my name is Ellen, which I like, but Elle has been a nickname for years and it’s a name that people remember, for some reason, so I go by it professionally now.
When is your birthday?
Name 3 jobs you’ve had in your life.
Oh boy, I posted on this a few years ago because I’ve had so many that I felt it needed to be recorded. It took TWO posts. I’ll give you my worst 3: janitor assigned to a room of cadavers (didn’t last long), envelope opener (job title and description all in two words), and assistant to the owner of a cookie factory (smell of cookies baking all day long and yet I was never given even one cookie - torture).
If you could have ANY job, what would you do?
I have 2 of the 3! I’m a stay-at-home-mom and I have my own business making and selling Lulu Wraps (fabric baby carriers). The third dream job is writing books. It’s in the some day pile.
What are you most afraid of?
Not becoming the person God wants me to be.
What was your favorite item as a child?
Do you remember the brand Yaga? It was a Rastafarian brand that was cool for a day (or less). My brother and sister gave a Yaga t-shirt when I was about eight and I was just waiting for a photographer to put me in a magazine wearing that shirt, I thought it was that cool.
What are 3 movies you could watch over and over?
Jane Austen adaptations and any season of The Cosby Show
Your dream vacation would be…
We will hopefully be living in London for a semester next year, which would be a dream vacation and then some.
What are 3 websites you visit daily?
Facebook, my blog, and etsy.
Must have snacks?
Go-to outfit and hair?
High-waisted jeans and a boyfriend cardigan with a high, messy bun.
Do you eat the stems of broccoli?
Too personal. Just joking. Yes, I do.
Ice cream I can trade for cookies.
Favorite day of the week?
It’s Friday, it’s Friday.
What do you do most often when you are bored?
Look at my phone. It’s almost like a nervous twitch now.
What is your favorite board game?
Scrabble, but I’m up for a good discussion (politics, religion, parenting, education, fashion, whateves) way before a board game.
What’s under your bed?
I don’t even want to know.
Which useless superhero power do you wish you possessed?
The power to do more than one thing at once. Oh wait, I already have that one. It’s called being a mom.
If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would it be?
The maker of The Bachelor so I could smack him in the head and thank him at the same time.
I hope you've fallen in love with this sweet family! Thank you so much for participating, Elle!
