{Friday Flair & Who I Am} with Rebecca from Simple as That

Hi. My name's Rebecca.
I'm a wife. Mother. Daughter. Sister. Friend. Blogger. Chocolate lover.
I'm  a bit of a perfectionist. Ugh. My sister's gonna read this and roll her eyes. Ok. I am a perfectionist. Totally hate it!
I'm a crafter, but I'm a lazy one. It needs to be simple or I'll turn and run!
I'm a photographer. A scrapbooker. I'm a believer in recording the stories of our regular, everyday life. The real {yes, my kids pick their nose too} kind of stories.
I wrote a book once.
I love to read but rarely find time these days. The last book I read: The Hunger Games.
I love quotes. I collect them. One of my recent favorites:
"The great lesson is…that the sacred is in the ordinary, that it is to be found in one's daily life, in one's neighbors, friends and family, in one's backyard."
- Abraham Maslow
I'm the oldest of four siblings. Before I had children I was a dental assistant. I'm an obsessive list writer. I love quiet, but rarely find it. …… I love chocolate, did I mention that already? I love garlic mashed potatoes, mint chocolate chip icecream & popcorn. Not at the same time, mind you.
…… I love to cook but hate cleaning up the mess afterwards. ……
I do enjoy time out with friends, but I'm a total homebody. My favorite place to be is at home, curled up on the couch in a comfy pair of yoga pants.


I'm a mean mom. I totally make my kids eat all their veggies, brush their teeth longer than 10 seconds and put on clean clothes at least every other day.  
Sometimes I leave the dinner dishes in the sink overnight. Sometimes I don't put the lid on the toothpaste. Sometimes I'm grumpy and impossible and crave time to myself. …… I'm thankful for the opportunity I have to be a mother to four beautiful children. I'm thankful for a husband who knows just what I need, even better than I do sometimes. I'm thankful for the strength I find in my faith to face life's challenges. …… I love to blog. I especially love connecting with women around the world & exchanging stories of motherhood, the challenges of daily life, crafting & photography. Getting to know others who are different from myself, yet the same in so many ways. :)
Rebecca is one of my new blogging friends and I ADORE her!!  This woman has talent, style & drive.  I love and admire that in people.  Her photography is simply divine and I learn soooo much from her.  Make sure you head over to Simple at That and say hello from WhipperBerry!!

Here are the sticky rules {you know rules are in place so that no one gets their feelings hurt or their eye poked out! So let’s play nice.}

  • You must grab a WhipperBerry button and include it somewhere in the post you’re linking, or on your home page (a text link is great too).
