Smile With Me Saturday Blog Hop - Week 17

First off, smile with me :) You made it through another week and deserve a big smile. You've got the whole weekend ahead of you so make it a good one!

This week it's Laurie from Steals and Deals for Kids!!

I asked Laurie a few questions about herself and her blog so you could get to know a little bit about her.

1) When did you first start blogging? Why?
I started a website about 8 months ago but I just switched it over to a wordpress blog about 6 weeks ago! (I'm kind of slow, I guess, and didn't know the difference!!) I am a teacher and I love kids and families and I wanted to help people find great deals that would help save them time and money. I also wanted to offer parenting advice (I have raised 2 daughters and now have 4 grandchildren), and give craft and recipe ideas.

2) What's your favorite part about blog hopping?
Just meeting new people and reading all of the interesting blogs that everyone has! Some of them are so interesting and have so many great ideas! I could sit and browse and read all day!!

3) What's your favorite hobby
I love to spend time with my family and grandkids. We all really enjoy the beach.....and I love to read!!

4) Who's your role model?
My role model is Jesus Christ. I live each and every day for Him!
Now that you know a bit about the Smiley Hopper of the week... get to hopping!
