Oh my goodness, I am truly honored and excited about this opportunity to collaborate with MoMoMod. I blog over at Mommy Hobbies. My name is Misha, I’m the proud mommy of two beautiful children and the lucky wife of one amazing man, D. I started blogging nearly 5 years ago as a means of clearing my thoughts, then it became my lifeline because we moved
3000 2339 miles away from my home. My husband is studying out here in PA.
My blog is about food, love, and all my hobbies. I cook dinner almost every night and I’m always on the hunt for new recipes. Just two nights ago I used polenta for the first time, I was always afraid of it because I thought it was made of something scary like, chickpeas and garbanzo beans. But it wasn’t! It’s just cornmeal, ready to soak in the flavors of what ever meal you’re making and add to it an incredible texture and taste. I mixed my polenta with Gorgonzola cheese *sigh*. Ok, enough, my love for food is evident.
I also love running, and am slated to run my first half-marathon in March. I’m OVER the moon about that.
We are a semi-crunchy family who enjoys eating bacon every once in a while. But for the most part our house is free of a lot of highly processed foods. The rule for my fridge is, “If it can keep longer than two weeks, it shouldn’t be in there”. Yes, I do have ketchup and mayo (shoot, I’m human).
My other pastime is sewing. Sewing took over my life for a while and drowned out my running. That wasn’t good, but now I’m back on track. I have an etsy showcasing my Punk Monkeys.
And, one of my first loves is photography. I don’t do much of it anymore, but use my blog posts as my outlet instead.
MoMoMod asked me to start guest posting every other Monday about living a healthy lifestyle. I’ll be covering a lot, not just food. The way we view food (our relationship with food) is connected to so many other aspects of our lives. Living a “clean” lifestyle is something I’m extremely passionate about. With all of my posts to come that last sentence will begin to make more sense.
I’m so eager to meet everyone over here and I hope you join me over at Mommy Hobbies and on FB, too! I use my FB page as a way to keep in contact throughout the day and actively talk about exercising, health tips, home remedies, lots of neat things.
