Celebrating Our 30s!: Optimistic Mom!

As part of Celebrating Our 30s feature, we send our guests a questionnaire with a series of 30 questions they have to answer.  The first four are mandatory.  The rest are up to our lovely guests to pick and choose and have fun with the answers!

We are excited once again to introduce you to another lovely lady in her fab 30s!  
Lartosha (Optimistic Mom) of Life is Hard, Laugh Anyway.  
She is one those bloggers you wish you could meet in person! 
 She is an anonymous blogger but the way she writes makes you feel like you know her. 
 Ms. L is relate-able, insightful and fun!  
The ladies of TC30s hopes to meet her someday soon! 
But for now, let's get to know her more below in cyberspace, 
then pay her a visit to her blog, ASAP!  
Take it away Lartosha!

Life is Hard, Laugh Anyway

Hi Ladies of TC30S,

I am so happy that you have given me the spotlight opportunity today. 
I am ready, what questions do you have for me and is this G, PG13, or X rated? 
Let me know cause I want to ensure I am content appropriate. 
Just breaking the ice. 
Let’s start.

1.       Name & blog
Latorsha. I blog at Life is Hard, Laugh Anyway

2.      Age
33 and loving it!

3).      What have you changed about the following areas since turning 30? 
Physical – Well, I realized that the boobs don’t stand up as well as they used to, especially after breastfeeding, so I got them some help by investing in a sexy push up from Victoria’s Secret. Needless to say the girls are at attention again.

Social – I have really learned to embrace people who touch my life whether they are online connections or people I have met face to face. If they touch my spirit I welcome them to my world. If not, I am strong enough to move on.

Children – My son turned 1 right around the time I turned 30. Over the last few years I have accepted that sometimes it is okay to let your child win. Save your energy for the stuff that really matters.

4. Make a Confession about being a 30something? 
I confess 30 made me better!!

5. What would you tell your 20-something self?
The BEST is yet to come! Oh and leave that loser dude alone. He is seeing another woman and she’ll have his baby soon! RUN!!

6. What is your favourite body part?
Right now my arms, I don’t like to brag but since you asked I gotta nice set of weapons up top.

7. What have you learned about intimacy?
Having been married 9 years, I have to say keep it fresh. Don’t be afraid to try something new.

8. What would you tell your 40-something self?
Remember how much you loved turning 30, well 40 is just an extensive of it. 
Keep the party going!

9. How do you keep fit?
I work out 4-5 times a week. The routine varies, but it is a combination of weights, cardio, and swim. I wish I could tell you I ate healthy all the time, but I don’t want to lie. 
So let’s keep moving.

10.  Does your husband (family) ever read your blog?
I know he bookmarked it on his laptop but since he never says “I can’t believe you said that about me” I figure he doesn’t read it. That’s okay, gives me more to talk about.

Before I go, I just want to say to all the 20 somethings out there, you ain’t seen nothing yet! 
30 is absolutely fabulous. 
Just wait!

Latorsha, is the blogger of Life is Hard, Laugh Anyway, a place where she tries to remain optimistic by any means necessary, mostly laughter. You can check out her blog Here , follow on twitter @AnOptimisticMom or contact her at AnOptimisticMom@

Confess ladies, what other advice would you give to your 20something self?

Hello I'm Lala! said...

Great interview!! I turn 30 next month. I'm excited, but only dread the number, actually. LOL.

I would tell my 20 self to not be so spontaneous and drop all the losers. I date way too many losers.

I would tell my 20something 30 are the best ever - you just embrace who you are :)!

Thannks for sharing.

Great interview Latorsha! I'm approaching 40 and my late 30's is when I really grew up.

It has really prepared me to be forty and fabulous. So yes, 30 is awesome, that's when you really start learning to love and treat yourself like the queen you are.

Wonderful advice!

30 is great! I took 25 super hard and was NOT looking forward to 30, but it was a breeze. I'm loving the new mindset that I have.

We all know you deserve it!!! I am more than happy with your guest post on my blog, everyone loved it.
You're one of the first people I really connected with when I first started blogging and I have to admit, I was terrified of turning 30 (im 28 now) but after meeting you and reading all your great posts Im not that afraid anymore. So thank you for making me realize that the best is yet to come :)))

I love reading Latorsha's blog! My husband reads my blog, but I've temporarily banned him before. He always has too many opinions! And I think I need to head to Victoria's Secret. :)
