What is your favourite day of the week and why?

Honestly I’m not too sure.  I don’t work a normal Monday-Friday 9-5 job and neither does my husband.  So I can’t say that I have one particular favorite day of the week.  Instead, I look forward to our Family Fun Days when we both have off and that can be literally any day during the week.  So every week, my favorite day can change.  How awesome is that?

Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter?

All, lol.  We live by the seasons and each season brings its own fun adventures.  Spring and Summer I can be outside more, go to farms, go to farmers markets, go swimming, just have fun exploring.  Everything is growing and blossoming.  Autumn the leaves are changing color which is so beautiful, and there’s a crispness in the air.  It’s also Halloween and a few days later my birthday.  And then Winter there’s snow!  I LOVE a good snow storm and I love how beautiful and magical the world looks when the snow has recently fallen and is glistening on the tree branches.  There’s something to look forward to for each season, so I can’t really say I have a favorite either.

Have you started shopping for Christmas yet?

Oh, I’m always thinking ahead!  My husband and I mostly make all of our own gifts for our family, so we always start brainstorming early and working on gifts early.  The few gifts I do buy, no I haven’t started shopping for those yet.

What is your favourite winter meal?

Venison stew!!!!  My husband make THE BEST Venison Stew around and it’s even better because the meat is always super fresh as he’s a hunter.

Warm or cold custard?

Cold.  I used to love eating for a special treat a Fruit Tart with Custard that was sold at my local supermarket.  Of course, I can’t eat it anymore, but I’m sure I could make my own gluten-free version.  Oooo!  Now I want custard, lol.

Spotify or Apple music?

Neither!  I prefer CDs.  I’m not big into digital music.

How long have you been blogging for?

Since June 2017.

Why did you first begin your blog?

I started my blog as a way to share what I have learned in the past three years.  Three years ago I finally got help for my eating disorder and it put me on such a different track in life.  I started learning so much about nutrition, about living all-natural, and all these little experiences just added up into a new lifestyle for my husband and I.  We keep learning new things, and I wanted to share my knowledge as well as my stories.  I feel if one person reads something I wrote and gets something out of it then that’s awesome!

Twitter or Facebook for your blog?

Neither, lol.  I try to stay away from social media (although I’m not always successful).  You can find My M.U.D. Life on Instagram @TheWanderingWanamakers.

Did you keep this years New Year’s Resolutions?

I don’t really make New Year’s Resolutions.  Instead, at the beginning of this year my husband and I sat down and made Oola Goals for 2017 (if you don’t know about Oola, I highly recommend you read their book Oola: Find Balance In An Unbalanced World and check out their website  It’s been amazing how many goals we have reached so far this year and made a reality, including one that seemed so completely unreachable to us which was getting bikes and starting to bike ride.  Two months ago we actually had extra money to buy bikes and now we go on bike riding adventures!

What are your goals for next year?

I honestly don’t know, but I do know that one of my continual goals is to keep learning and growing and work on becoming a healthier, happier me.  It’s all done through small steps, and I have already come so far.  Seriously, the sky is the limit!  I just need to keep going forward.
