I am so excited to start off this new series. A big goal of mine is to build more community, and this is a huge step in the right direction. Wild Women Wednesday is going to be a monthly interview with amazing military mama bloggers.
Our first blogger is one of the wonderful people I have ever met. She does cakes, quilts, blogs, cooks, makes friends like breathing. She inspires me with her mindset and ability to accomplish.
Meet Sarah Pitcher: mom of two smart boys, owner of Pitcher’s Boutique, and my friend.
Pretend you are having that “omg I am in my underwear” dream. Tell us who, what, where, when:
If I am in my underwear I hope I’m at home either alone or with my husband! I think we all have had that dream and I would say it was while I worked at Legoland. Which included my pre-baby body and some cute co-workers. I am sure I would not have cared then. I would care more now, post-baby body.
Tell us about what motivates you. In parenthood, in blogging, in life.
Motivation is hard to find while being a stay at home mom/wife. The kids pretty much motivate me to get up in the morning, mostly because I would hate to wake up to another egg smash disaster. My kids motivate me to keep going when I get low and they remind me that each day is not going to be like the last.
I also am a blogger in the sewing and quilting world. This last year I’ve taken a break as I’ve just been crazy busy (since the hubby deployed for half the year), and I needed a little more me time. I love trying new challenging sewing and quilting patterns. I have recently been asked to share/sell items and patterns which has just made my life even more exciting (and even more crazier.) I love each and every minute though.
How do we know each other?
We met while stationed at Cannon AFB in Clovis NM. I believe we met at a playgroup or some gathering. All I know is our friendship was key to my survival with my second child.
Would you introduce me to your family & friends?
I would definitely introduce you to my current friends as they would love you; because they are for the most part all crunch moms too. My family would love you and all the kids, you and I have a very similar personality and my family would welcome you in like their own.
Have you met anyone interesting/famous on your blogging journey?
I think the most interesting person I’ve met and had a chance to do some work for is Stephanie over at Late Night Quilters. I got to test run a pattern of hers and enjoyed the wonderful conversations and the educational information I got from her and the experience.
No one’s around, what’s your deep dark secret vice?
Oh gosh my deep dark secret vice…. Uhhhh coffee, ice cream, sewing a 100 projects at once. If I’m alone I would probably shower! Such a stay at home mom luxury, and if the kids or husband are home, being able to have my coffee and latest book or quilt. I think having kids in less likely to have a true vice and more of a I just want to be alone or have silence.
If you were to promote me as a product, what would I be and what would your pitch be?
A crunch mom!!! I would tell everyone how wonderful you are at being cloth diaper, babywearing and out going all natural mama! One of the best with some of the most informational facts.
I personally struggle with balancing chores, homeschool, alone/Bible study, family time, and blogging. Can you share how you fit blogging into your schedule?
Before this last year off, I balanced it by just scheduling my time. I sewed during naps and after the boys went to bed. I would blog or edit blogs during the day while the boys played or watch a movie. I usually did the chores on days I needed a break from everything as sometimes chores can be my “get away from the kids” time. If I sit down the boys want to be on my lap, and that can make it difficult to do stuff for even relax. That’s pretty much why I do chores if I’m feeling smothered. If I do plan to blog while I’m watching kids I always have a stop go stop go method. Usually I proof read after the kids go to bed because it usually is missing something or it was done while I was busy with the kids or dinner.
Do you have any questions for me? Or anything else you would like to add?
I would love to mention The Carrying On Project as I am doing a lot of volunteer work with them and also have a support group at Beale AFB. Look for us on Facebook.
