Since we get asked the same questions over, and over, and over (and over, and over…) again, we thought we’d FINALLY do a Frequently Asked Questions post! It’s about time, huh?
1) Are you two sisters?
No. Glad we got that out of the way. Now we can move on.
2) But you look so much alike. Are you sure you aren’t related?
No. We mean, no, we are not related, and yes, we are sure of it.
3) How did you come up with the name of your blog?
Funny story: We were talking on the phone trying to decide on the name of our blog. We wanted something that we always yelled at our kids when they were bored and getting into trouble. Suddenly Lindsi said, “Hang on a sec…” Jamie heard Lindsi say, “Can you PLEASE get your toys out of the dryer! I am sick of finding toys in the dryer!” When Lindsi got back on the phone, Jamie said, “That’s it! That’s the name of our blog!”
4) Why did you start your blog in the first place?
We had both been blogging on different blogs for different reasons and those blogs took up a lot of our time. We were talking one day about ideas to help us spend more quality time with our kids. We decided to start a blog together to help us do just that. We know, it’s technically counter-productive, however, it really hasn’t been for us!
5) How old is this blog?
Our first post was September 5th, 2011. As of this post, we are not even a year old!
6) Wow! You’ve come a long way in the last (almost) 11 months!
Thanks. We’re pretty proud of ourselves but that really wasn’t a question…
7) How long have you guys known each other?
We’ve been inseparable for the past 8 years. Ok, maybe not inseparable but we’ve been pretty close. We met in late 2004 and hit it off right away! We don’t actually see each other that often (even though we only live 1/2 hour apart) but we talk a MINIMUM of 2 times a day on the phone! No lie! Ask our husbands!
8) How has this blog changed your relationship?
It’s definitely strengthened the relationship we have with each other AND the relationships our families have with each other. Lindsi has learned that Jamie is super laid back, easily distractible, and extremely techy. Jamie has learned that Lindsi is extremely organized, very creative, and likes to have things scheduled in advance. That’s ok, we’ve learned we’re the perfect blogging partners for each other!
