Guys I’m so excited about this! Y’all asked don’t fun questions on IG. So I’m just going to do this question and answer style and get it rolling!
Q: What’s your dream vacation?
A: Hands down – Denmark/Holland/Ireland it’s where my ancestry is from and I dream of seeing it all one day!
Q: What’s your guilty pleasure?
A: Curling up on the couch, eating some sort of treat and watching trash TV…. Vanderpump Rules, Real Housewives – all that 😉
Q: If you didn’t blog what would be your dream job?
A: Some sort of design/creative job – either in hair or interior design!
Q: What was your first date with your hubby?
A: It was a blind date – we went for pizza and he listened to screamo music the whole time…. haha!
Q: What does Marcus thing about your job/blog/instagram?
A: He is 100% supportive! I mean he may hate taking pictures 😉 haha! But he’s a good sport and supports me in all my goals/dreams!
Q: Biggest challenge in life?
A: Oh this is a hard one… 2016/2017 were some of the hardest years I’ve ever faced – we were in the middle of infertility again, I was in a mega depressive state and I don’t ever want to feel any of that again. Haha! But there’s also the challenge of my bio Dad walking away (and a whole lot of other things) when I was 9 years old…and that’s been a challenge to this day. But I did have an amazing “Step” Dad step in and I’m very lucky to call him Dad!
Q: What ear piercings do you have?
A: I have my daith pierced for migraines (AND IT HAS WORKED INCREDIBLY) – then I have two normal piercings on each ear… I’ve been telling Marcus I want more though! I want a couple hoops on my cartilage and maybe a third piercing so we will seeeee…
Q: Favorite childhood memory?
A: When my parents got divorced we lived with my Grandma (who was the best person ever) and me, my sister and my Mom all shared a room. Late at night (which was probably like 8PM hahaha) I would climb into my Mom’s bed and watch Little House on the Prairie with her and it’s for sure my favorite memory!
Q: Favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?
A: It used to be going out to dinner or anything hahah – but now I live for a cozy night in watching TV with Marcus and ordering take out
Q: Three words that best describe me…
A: I asked Marcus this one because it was hard for me haha – he first said “hot, sexy, nice” hahah but then said “motivated, energetic, caring”
Q: Do you want more babies?
A: This is a hot question every time I do one of these – haha! Honestly I have no idea. We are very content with two currently, but ask me in 4 years because I might want one more. But I’ll be maxed at 3!
Q: Have you lived in Idaho your whole life?
A: Nope! We moved here when I was 14 from Orange County California!
Q: If you had to be an inanimate object, what would you be?
A: Yikes this is a hard one… can I say a plant? Even though that’s technically “Alive” haha! That or maybe a piece of furniture in a cool place so I can “see” all the things 😉
Q: How old were you when you got married?
A: A baby! 21!
Q: How did you and your husband meet?
A: Friends set us up on a blind date!
Q: Favorite concert you’ve ever been to?
A: I haven’t been to too many – but probably when we saw Hunter Hayes!
Q: When did IG/blogging turn into making money for you?
A: I have been doing this since 2009 and it turned into a job for me probably around 2014! But I also had an Etsy shop then too!
Q: Thoughts on CoronaVirus?
A: I’m going to be honest – my anxiety is getting the best of me on this…it’s stressing me out but I’m trying not to think about it too much.
Q: If you had a million dollars what would you do with it?
A: Oh! Marcus and I talk about this all the time! We would pay ours/parents houses or debt off, put money aside for the kids – gift close family some, take a fun vacation and then use it for good (which is what we talk about all the time) – leaving big tips, etc! I think that would be so fun.
Q: Favorite band as a teenager?
A: The Killers! Haha
Q: Did you have infertility with both kids?
A: Yes! We did everything except IVF for Blake for years and then magically got pregnant when we went to start IVF on our own. Then we tried for like 3 years for Nash and ended up having to do IVF!
Q: How do you like the hand tied extensions?
A: LOVE them! My head is still getting used to them and a little irritated in spots, but if that goes away I’m all in for these forever haha!
Q: Chip or Crumbl cookie?
A: Crumbl all day! Marcus would disagree though!
Q: Do you eat Mac & Cheese with a fork or spoon?
A: Fork! Do people eat it with a spoon?
Q: How do you find the time to work out and where do your littles go during?
A: I force myself to make time or else I’ll just keep making excuses! So I do it first thing in the morning and kids go to the daycare or my parents house!
Q: What did you used to do for work?
A: I worked as a hairdresser (loved it) and a personal banker.
Q: Your favorite thing about each kid?
A: Blake’s sensitiveness. She is so sassy and independent but she has this super sweet, sensitive side where she worries and cares about everyone. Nash, he’s still so little – but I love how much he babbles! He seriously loves to talk and does it all day long. He’s also a mega Mama’s boy and that’s the freaking best.
Q: Did you go to college?
A: I graduated from cosmetology school and then did 3 years of an undergrad but never finished.
Q: Something you currently want to splurge on?
A: Our backyard! Haha! I want a really fun, backyard oasis!
Q: How can I help a friend struggling through infertility?
A: My biggest advice is just to be there, talk, listen, keep her/him busy! Do random things like drop treats by, etc. and just let them kind of spill their guts and feel for them.
Q: Favorite outdoor activity?
A: Is hot tubbing one? Hahahaha
Q: What’s your biggest fear?
A: Honestly I’m like the most anxious/fearful person (and on meds because of it haha) but I think my biggest fear is anything bad related with my kids.
Q: Hidden/weird talent you have?
A: I can fold my tongue in half and make it stick like that. Haha! It’s hard to explain, maybe I’ll show y’all on insta stories. Ironically enough I don’t know anyone else who can do it except Marcus….
Q: Favorite place to go on vacation?
A: I love Disney (either one)!
Q: Who has better jokes? You or Marcus?
A: For sure Marcus. He’s just witty and my brain doesn’t work like that, haha!

A: Just refreshers!
Q: Favorite Disney Snack?
A: The Mickey Beignets!
Q: What’s your favorite color?
A: A very subtle/mild orangey pink!
Q: Favorite thing to do with your kids?
A: I really just love watching them/playing with them at home!
Okay I think that’s good for now! That was fun, I’ll do it again soon! 🙂
