Follow Friday - Gina from The Ish Blog




Happy Friday lovahs! I hope you have all had a wonderful week and even better fall-filled excitement planned for the weekends.

This weeks featured Follow Friday Blogger is none other Gina from The Ish Blog. Gina is a fellow New Yorker {so I'm sure she can tell you that while yes, the leaves changing are a beautiful sight, it is still very depressing...because of the snow. All that snow.}

Also? Her little man is just as bald as Keagan. And that makes me smile.

So please, give a nice warm welcome to Gina ~ check her out!




Who are you (name/blog/things we should know)?


I'm Gina - my blog is The Ish Blog (http://theishblog.blogspot.com). My blog revolves around life with my toddler son Matthew, who we nicknamed Ish long before he was born. I'm a full-time working mom, working and living in beautiful Westchester County, NY.


What got you started blogging and what do you blog about?

I started blogging while on maternity leave. Ish was 6 weeks old when I started and I already had about 5000 pictures of him on my computer. I wanted to share them with family and friends and thought a blog was a great place to do that! I like to tell the story behind the pictures too, so it's nice to have an outlet for my writing as well as my photography.

If you were another person would you be friends with you?
Absolutely - who wouldn't love me???!!! Seriously though, I think the friends I have are a reflection of the kind of friend I am - and that says a lot!


What is something you swore you would never do when you became a parent but found out it must be done?

Ice cream before dinner. Ice cream AS dinner. Ish is a very picky eater.

What is one piece of information you would give all new moms and moms-to-be that you wish you had gotten?

That it can be really hard in the beginning. And that it's ok to ask for help.


Other than Taking It One Step at a Time, what are some of your favorite blogs?

There are so many blogs out there that I love - my blog roll is ever expanding! Some of my favorite favorites:
The Heir to Blair (http://theheirtoblair.com)
And Potato Makes Three (http://www.kayla-randolph.blogspot.com/)
Mama's Little Chick (http://www.mamaslittlechick.blogspot.com/)
