Andrea is the blogger at Good Girl Gone Redneck and an avid Twitter-er! She hails from North Carolina after having lived in New York her entire life. Living in The South has been an adjustment for Andrea but she has found solace in sweet tea (the wine of The South!) and hushpuppies (yum!). She is a married mom of one daughter, loves to read, watch TV, and write! Andrea’s blog covers a lot of territory from personal musings, to memes and book reviews. We met Andrea through the Friends You Love blogging event in October and are delighted to get to know her better. Being that she’s a transplanted Northerner, we wondered would Andrea rather go swimming in the ocean or hiking in the mountains? She say, “Swimming in the ocean. I am like a fish when I can be and love the water.”
I’m known for… being a Native New Yorker who now lives down South!
I’m working on… finding and holding onto myself in my role as a mom.
10 years from now I… hope that I have raised my daughter to be a strong, smart and proud teenage girl … (ACK!)
I’m currently addicted to… Adele. I absolutely adore her.
I find joy… in the little things. Like my child’s laugh, a small smile, or a goofy joke.
My secret ambition… is to publish something I have written.
It really annoys me when… women put down other women. I just find there to be no point or purpose and think that we would all do so much better to support one another.
I can’t do without… my DVR. I seriously would never get to watch the shows I love (and need!) without it!
I’m most creative… late at night.
I admire… single mothers. I think they don’t get nearly enough credit for all that they do every single day.
When I grow up… I want the chance to travel the world. Get to the places I have always wanted to see (like Barcelona and Israel.)
Coffee or tea? Tea. But I do like some flavored coffees that are yum.
PC or Mac? Mac all the way!
iPhone or Droid? Android!
Twitter or Facebook? Twitter – I am actually not on FB!
Pickles – sweet or dill? Sweet.
Three words my friends would use to describe me are: honest, loyal and real.
