Eat Drink & Be Mary: It's Friday Eve!

3.06.2014

It's Friday Eve!

Happy Friday Eve Loves.  I am excited for this weekend and all the clogging and fun it has to bring.  But in the mean time I'll be spending my time in the kitchen whipping something tasty up for my family, stayed tuned next Tuesday.  While I'm cooking away (fingers crossed the house doesn't burn down) I have someone special here for y'all today.  The lovely Brittany @ Fabulously Faint.  She is just the cutest, always blogging about her weekend happenings & delicious looking recipes.  

{Don't know what clogging is?  Check out this post, and watch the clips.  It's probably not what you think.}



Name: Brittany

Blog name: Fabulously Faint

Where are you from? I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful state of California! Yes, I’m a Cali girl through and through . I use the word "hella" in pretty much every sentence.

Favorite Quote: “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”-Maya Angelou
This is by far my favorite quote and totally speaks to my philosophy on being a great nurse.

How did you pick your blog title? Fabulously Faint was derived from my main symptom ….and what girl doesn't want to be fabulous?

Why did you start a blog? I suffered a stroke in 2012 and was diagnosed with a chronic illness in March 2013. I had a lot of friends and family mention the idea of blogging but I wasn't quite ready to expose myself. Finally I decided that it would be a good way to bring awareness and share my story in a positive light. I wanted to show that it is possible to enjoy life even if it isn't the same life you once lived.

Where do you finding inspiration for blogging? I started this blog to chronicle my journey through chronic illness but there is a lot more to Brittany that being the sick girl.I love all things girly, cooking, and crafting. I follow other bloggers with similar stories and interests. Also, Pinterest pretty much completes me! In regards to my "lifestyle" portion , everyday life and conversation with family and friends definitely have a lot of influence on what I write.

Do you have any special weekly posts? This post is part of a blog swap that I do every week called Take-over Tuesdays. I love it because it allows me to share bloggers that I love and get to know other bloggers a little better. Let me know if you’re interested in participating! I also have a post called Foodie Fridays which is a collection of favorite recipes and new recipes that I have tried out.

What is your current favorite post? I'm not sure that I have a favorite but But you look fine and It's Okay are probably the two posts that are the most relevant to why I started blogging in the first place. These were the first two posts that I really allowed myself to be exposed and share my experiences with my blog readers.

Why do you read Eat Drink & Be Mary ? Lets be honest, its no secret that I love to cook , bake , and most of all EAT. Mary posts the best recipes and I love her Delicious Dish Tuesday Link-Up because it provides me with a bunch of new recipes to try! How sweet is it that she featured my Churro Cupcakes Recipe last week !

Three blogs you love to read?
. Luck Fupus- Marla is a fellow chronically ill blogger that shares her inspiring story with the help of her genuine spirit and hilariously sarcastic writing style.

.Venus Trapped In Mars – I love that Sarah is a girly girl with a passion for sports! I have totally taken advantage of her SaturdaySessions,tutorials for new bloggers .

. I wore yoga pants to work- Besides the fact that we share a love for inappropriate humor, Whitney's Back That Azz Up Friday is my favorite link up of the entire week. Its a place where everyone links up their fav songs of the week which essentially creates a killer playlist to listen to...besides it's called back that azz up ...hellllllo of course I love it!

5 random facts about you:
1. I have a thing for movie quotes and song lyrics . If someone says something remotely close to a lyric or movie line I am highly likely to bust out in song or finish the movie line. 
2. I hate pretty much all breakfast food...eggs,cereal,toast...weird I know
3. Dance is my passion I've been dancing since the age of 3 .Just by looking at me people assume I'm a ballerina...nope,I'm a hard hitting hip hopper. Looks can be deceiving folks ;)
4. The two most adventurous things I've done are swimming with a pod of about 60 dolphins in the ocean and para sailing which were both part of my trip to Kona, Hawaii 
5. I'm 4'10 and I have been pulled over not once, but twice because the cops thought I was under 16 driving a stolen car. Mind you one of these times was when I was 24 years old ! The cop asked who the owner of the car was and where my parents lived. After showing him my L's and registration he swore that the reason he pulled me over was because I had an air freshener hanging from my rear view hahaha ok buddy. It's a classic :)
