As If I'm Not Honest Enough Already. . .

I sat down yesterday and went back over some of Miss Banana Pant's "Most Popular Blog Posts", I realized something. People really love transparency. It seems the things people appreciate most are the more "in-the-trenches-of-life" stuff.  I focus so much on parenting and life lessons, and I think they are valuable. Everyone needs a little humor and sarcasm to get us through the struggles of parenthood. There is so much more "behind-the-blogger", so-to-speak that I've never revealed. The next 30 days, I intend to remedy that little problem. I'm diving into the magical world of "blogging challenges". I'm rather impulsive like that. I've seen this little project on other blogs before and thought to myself, Why not? I've not attempted this before, and may royally screw it up, but it's worth it to me to reveal some other facets of my personality and get some things off my chest. Because I'm not very good at following directions (and I'm a bit of a control freak), I've made up my own list of blog post topics for the next 30 days. I would LOVE it if some of you would follow suit and take up this challenge as well! We can reveal our quirks together! Here is the list of prompts for the 30-Day Blog-A-Thon:

1. 30 Random Facts About Yourself. 
2. The Best Things in Life Are. . .
3. Where Does Inspiration Come From?
4. A Day in The Life. . .In Photos
