Featured Blogger Friday(11/5)-Slice o' Heaven

Welcome to The Element, Erin of Slice o' Heaven!

I hate to admit this, but I'm just a recent follower of Erin's {I know, WHERE have I been!?}.

I'm glad that I'm now a follower because she has so much to offer on her site from fun weekly memes to life with her adorable daughter to food recipes :)

So either way if you're a new or old follower of Erin's, this interview will be a treat!

Q. What’s your name and blog? What other information would you like to share?

My name is Erin aka Mrs. Cox. I have a handful of blogs, but most note-worthy is Slice o' Heaven. Second being Snafood, which is my food and recipe blog.

Q. Why did you choose that name for your blog?

Slice o' Heaven was fairly easy to come up with for me. After having my daughter, Charlie, I felt that anything that I blogged about, even the frustrating moments, was sharing my own slice o' heaven. Snafood is a very tongue in cheek title. I am not shy about experimenting in the kitchen. Sometimes the experiments turn out, sometimes they don't. When they don't they are usually so far gone they could be considered a "snafu" - hence snafood.

Q. Why did you start blogging?

Originally I started blogging to keep in touch with Sister #1 and her family who live out of state.

Q. What kind of stuff do you cover with your blog? Is there a specific genre you write about or is the sky the limit?

A mix of everything, really. "Random thoughts, pictures of things I love, and anything else I feel like writing about..." I also weave in product insight, giveaways, and a little window shopping in an effort to cure my fashion fixes :)

Q. What is one must read post that you have written {Include Link}?

I seriously tried so hard to think of a single post that would be a "must" read. Really, I did. But I couldn't. I'd feel guilty leaving out the other posts that I love and adore! So instead, I'll leave you the link to "The Best Of" page.

Q. Name one thing you love about your blogging job.

Essentially, I am playing the role as my daughter's biographer. Before she was born, I chronicled my pregnancy, the birth, all the way up until now when I write about her newest discoveries.

Q. Name one thing you’re not quite fond of about your blogging job.

Balance. There's so much I want to write about, but ultimately family is, and will always be, my priority. I have about 30 posts in draft and a hefty list of blog topics that I hope to eventually cover. In time ;)

Q. What’s one random fact about you?

Just one? *chuckle* I have OCD tendencies and I lovingly embrace them. "Obsessive and Compulsively Delightful" is what I call it. Lists keep me organized and on task. Is my home perfect and pristine? Lawsie, no. I used to dream of ultimate organization, but now I prefer to have a comfortable, relaxed, "lived-in", child friendly home.

Q. Inspiration comes in many forms for different people. What inspires you?

For the longest time, on my sidebar I've had this blurb... "My husband has my heart, my daughter is my life, family is my strength, laughter is my air." I pull my inspiration from those four things. They are my core.

Q. Where else can we find you(Personal Website, Etsy Shop, Twitter, Facebook, Etc.)?
