Ashley Miller

Name: Ashley Miller

Baby’s name and age: Hattie, 7 weeks

What has been an unexpected joy of motherhood? The instant love I felt for her. You always hear moms talk about that, but I didn’t realize how that would really feel.

Has anything been harder than you expected? The lack of sleep, especially those first 4 weeks, was much more difficult than I was prepared for.

Where are you from and how long have you lived in NWA? I grew up in Wynne, and have lived in NWA for 9 years. My husband moved here from Missouri 3 years ago.

Which songs are on your iPod right now? To be honest, I’m not sure. I haven’t used it in so long. If I’m not near a radio I typically use Pandora instead.

What’s your favorite tv/Netflix show? My new favorite is Scandal. I recently binge watched from Netflix while on bed rest and was hooked.

Do you have any fun hobbies? I love any type of craft project when I have time.

If you could vacation anywhere in the world, where would it be? I have always wanted to visit Australia and New Zealand!

Who would you want to play you in a movie about your life? I’ve never really thought about it, but since you mentioned it, Jennifer Garner.

What superpower would you love to have for one day? I would love to be able to teleport so that I could travel around the world. I’ve even had a dream that I could do this!

What’s something you’ve always wanted to learn? To cook well without needing to use recipes.

What three things do you always have with you? Chapstick, a ponytail holder, and most recently…Hattie.

As a new mom, you need a few guilty pleasures. What’s your favorite? Lately it has been an hour or so to roam around Target!

One word to sum me up: Organized
