here. So with out further ado, take it away girls!!I blogged recently telling you how awesome these ladies are! They are just finishing up their blog tour tomorrow and I was honored when they asked to stop by my blog on their tour. If you missed some of their blog tour posts you can find their line up
So I sat down with Whitney and Soni interview-style to find out their answers. (And I threw mine in there as well.) Here’s how our interview went:
ME: Girls, it’s so good to sit with you and chat about things we love. Let’s start with the obvious. Food.
SONI: I love gooey homemade brownies with homemade frosting. Or pretty much anything that
is slightly undercooked.
WHITNEY: Popcorn, cheese, chicken noodle soup, avocados, and green smoothies.
WHITNEY: Not together Brooke.
ME: Right. OK, my answer is Banana Cake. It’s amazing.
ME: Next question. What do you love to do with your true love?
SONI: Date nights at Plates and Palates (a little local restaurant.) But only if he lets me have my
own white chocolate peppermint cheesecake.
ME: Sooo, do you love the date night, or the cheesecake?
ME: OK. I also love date night, especially when it involves shopping. It’s rare, but it’s beautiful
when it happens. Whit?
WHITNEY: My favorite date nights include GOOD Mexican food and a movie.
ME: OK, what do you LOVE about being a mom?
WHITNEY: I love the way my 8 month old son’s hands slap against the kitchen floor as he crawls. I love the way my 1st grade son writes everything so phonetically, I love that I have a daughter right in the middle of my 4 boys.
ME: Aww! I LOVE that answer!
SONI: I love talking with them while I’m tucking them in at night. Even if it means they go to bed a little late.
ME: And I love being outside with my kids. Watching them ride their bikes, selling lemonade, finding bugs. And I also love how it wears them out. It makes bedtime so much smoother.
ME: What do you love to do in your spare time?
WHITNEY: I love reading, especially historical fiction. I love to write—stories and music. I love to create, just not through crafts. I repeat: I do not have a crafty bone in my body.
SONI: I love learning about deep, doctrinal principles from LDS scholars.
ME: Soni, that’s deep! I’m impressed. OK, and my answer would be, I love to bake. And I don’t want to hear about the health effects. The person who said “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” CLEARLY never had Banana Cake.
WHITNEY: You’ve already mentioned Banana Cake.
ME: What is a love you have that some may consider quirky?
SONI: I love the early Spring—when it’s a little cold in the shade, but perfect in the sun. And I
love counting. Like stairs, the number of times my kids brush their teeth…
ME: (Silence) Soni, there’s help for that.
SONI: I know.
ME: Love it. Whit?
WHITNEY: I love my BlendTec, my Bosch, and my Wonder Mill. And Harry Potter. And my iPhone. And childbirth.
ME: All good things. And I love Home Depot, and Hobby Lobby. And I add my vote to Harry Potter.
ME: OK, last one. What do you love about being a part of Mercy River?
SONI: I love in-depth conversations with Brooke and Whitney that go on for hours. (And it’s still never long enough.)
WHITNEY: I love singing with my best friends.
ME: Girls! You stole my answer! I 100% concur. I love that I get to travel, perform and rehearse with my best friends. Even failing is a little easier with them next to me. And of course, we love LOVE meeting new people and hearing their stories.
WHITNEY AND SONI: We concur.
ME: Girls, thank you for sitting down with me today. And a very special thank you to cute Kendra. Frankly, Kendra, we LOVE your blog. xo
Whitney, I love all those quirky thing you wrote, except I don’t have an iphone….one day! You ladies are so fun, thanks for stopping by on your blog tour, and good luck with your new CD. I love it!
