Featured Diva of the Week…Jess of My Silly Monkeys

**Name:  Jess
  Blog: www.mysillymonkeys.com

To help us get a better idea of your personality, please describe yourself in 3 words.

Semi-Crunchy, Shy, and because my friend is screaming it…helpful

 What is the name of your blog and how did you come up with its name?

My blog is, My Silly Monkeys, and I came up with it because I have 5 silly little kids who I call monkeys.

When did you begin blogging and how did you get started?

I started my very first blog in April of 2009 to keep out of state family up to date with our lives and see pictures of the kids.

Is there any one thing you think sets you apart from other blogs/bloggers?

There are a few! The thing I get most commented on is that I have 5 kids, which is a lot to some , so I stand out.

If your blog managed to disappear would you do it all over again?  

Wow…this is a hard one for me. I would like to say yes but I really don’t know.

If you could eat anything in the world without gaining weight, what would it be?

Mexican food!

Pepsi or Coke?

Diet Pepsi with Vanilla ;)

What is your #1 pet peeve of the opposite sex?

Men! LOL they just don’t get us. My number one pet peeve of any gender would be lying but I can’t say it’s only men that lie.

If there was anything you could change about yourself, what would it be?

To have more patience.

Share with us your best stress reliever?

Paranormal Romance books J

Fake hair or Fals Nails?

Neither J

Are you more like Martha Stewart, Peg Bundy or Rosanne O’Connor?

HAHA all 3! But if I’d have to pick one I would say Martha…I *TRY* to be the perfect mom.

If your life was a reality show, what would it be called?

My Crazy Life

Name one thing you cannot live without?

As corny as it sounds, my children

What is something “not” a lot of people know about you but you WISH more people did know OR wish they didn’t know?

I’m SO shy….everyone in my online life are really surprised to find that out. I am also a huge worrier and I wish I didn’t show that side of me as often as I do.

Do you any new projects you are currently working on?

Yes! In August I am coordinating A Blogtastic Extravaganza 2.0! I am compiling 100 awesome bloggers that will all host their own giveaway with a $50 minimum prize, all 100 giveaways go live on the same day/same time and will all cross-promote each other. This was such a huge hit in January that I know August will be even bigger and better!  We are still accepting very few applications if you would like to join.

Now this wouldn’t be happy hour if I didn’t ask…so what is your favorite cocktail?

Pina Colada
