Sunday Social

I thought I would join up with Sunday Social today!
Watching football, drinking pumpkin beer and blogging... what could be better?

Sunday Social

1. What is the name of your blog and how did you come up with it??
So... it's a play on "Sugar Spice and Everything Nice"... you know, from that nursery rhyme?
"Sugar and Spice" represents my personality to a T. I'm a pretty easygoing and nice person but my personality definitely has a little sass.
"Dash of Advice" represents my job as a therapist and general tend to give decent advice.

2. What do you love the most about blogging?
I love meeting and getting to know blog friends! 
I really like writing and getting my thoughts out there (even if no one ever reads them). I have a few blog posts I haven't published, and don't know if I ever will. It makes me feel so much better to just write things out.
Blogging is so supportive and is a community I never even knew about when I started this blog. I love it!

3. What are your 2 favorite posts you've written?
I feel like I have so many good posts ahead of me! Here are my favorite two so far...
French Toast Bake
That should be self-explanatory. This is an amazing recipe!!
Reflections- 4 Years
This is my only blog post about my career! So why is it my favorite? Read and you'll see. When something is such a big part of your life, it deserves a post. 
I also tend to re-read it when things are tough. Kind of like self-therapy?

I can't stick to just one. Here's my third and one of the most recent..
Fall Wreath

4. What is something you'd want to tell someone just starting out in blog world?

Well, I haven't been around too long but from my experience so far, I would say reach out and make friends with other bloggers. It makes blogging so much more fun. Leave comments on other blogs! I'm terrible with this sometimes. It does take time. Don't worry about the number of followers you have, focus on the content of your blog and being genuine. If you have a day where you don't feel like blogging, don't. Don't put pressure on yourself. There's no right or wrong way to blog! Oh also, don't demand people to follow your blog when you leave comments on other blogs. 

5. Biggest blogging learning experience you've had?
I feel like I'm learning every day. I've definitely learned that I have to be organized or else I'll forget things. 

6. Give us 3 blogs we NEED to be following that you love. 
Just 3? Well, you're getting 4.
Dani, Leigh, Steph, and Niki are a few lovely ladies who I "met" when I first started blogging. All of them always comment on mine and other bloggers' posts, and are so supportive and sweet. I'm also excited to say that they're all participating in my upcoming giveaway, so you might want to visit again soon!

I hope you enjoy the last bits of your weekend! :)


  1. I had no idea you were a therapist! I liked your reflection post :)

  2. I agree with the demand of following back when people leave comments. I'll leave my URL at the bottom, but that basically means, go if you want to, but feel no obligation to. I want people to follow my blog b/c they are interested in what I'm saying, not b/c I commented on theirs. Gosh that felt good to get that out!!
