Thanks to everyone who turned in questions for this! I think these posts are fun to do every few weeks especially to answer frequent questions I get! I didn’t get to every question but I did screenshot them all to save for the next time!

Where is your necklace from you wear everyday?

The necklace is from Tiny Tags and has Frances and Sterling’s names on it. It is a piece i really treasure and wear every single day. You can see it below.

Any new favorites from Trader Joe’s?

Yes the Zhoug sauce. I am obsessed with it! It is a spicy green sauce and good on everything but I especially like it on hummus. I also found a really great pinot grigio/rose wine that is awesome and only $5.99.

How tall are you ?

I am 5’9. I used to hate being tall because I was always taller than all the boys growing up now I love it.

Do you eat dessert, if so how often?

I really don’t eat dessert. I am much more of a salty person that a sweet person. Give me a bag of chips and I can’t stop but I can easily pass up dessert. I will occasionally eat one of these dark chocolate sea salt and caramel squares my neighbor Rick brought me from Costco. Also peanut butter pie is my favorite dessert if I see that on a menu I order it.

Favorite and most challenging things about being a mom?

I have so many favorites about being a mom. But I love watching both of them grow and mature into their own little personalities. My other favorite is the unconditional love they both give me and have taught me. Challenging for me is discipline because since I am a single mom I have no one to back me up I have to be the good guy and the bad guy everyday and to me that is hard. Also challenging is third grade math homework:)

Are you dating anyone?

Yes I am dating.

Top 3 Summer nail Polish colors?

I love OPI Cajun Shrimp (the best reddish orange color) , OPI Funny Bunny (a pretty white) and OPI Kiss me on my Tulips (a great dark hot pink)

Do you nap?

Nope I never nap. I have such an anxious mind i just can’t nap because it is always thinking of everything I need to get done.

Flattering outfit for family pictures?

I personally love a long maxi dress. I really like this Emerson Frye one I wearing below and I love this Misa one.

This H&M one is also a cute option under $50 and the shade of blue is so pretty for pictures.

Do you use teeth whitener?

I do not but I have a whitening toothpaste that I love that you can order HERE. It truly makes a huge difference!

One food you don’t like and can’t make yourself eat?

This is a tough one because I truly like to eat most foods. I would probably say pork chops. I hate thick meat it grosses me out.

How long til I started making money off my blog?

It took me about two years to start making money off my blog. I had two part time jobs when I started my blog so I didn’t start it with the intentions of making money but I am so happy with the direction it has grown.

How long have you been blogging?

I started my blog 9 years ago right after Sterling was born. I am a grandma blogger-haha.

What kind of eyeliner and eyeshadow do you use?

I love Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner I use either the black or Demolition color. and I use this eye shadow palette.

This was a frequent question yes I have one in the works coming soon!

Read any good books lately?

Truthfully I have not been reading as much as I used too but I just finished Elin Hilderbrand’s Winter Street Trilogy and loved it. Also the book The Idea of You was soooo good!

It is different every week what I spend on groceries. I am not the best at budgeting so no I do not budget.

Best lunch Spot in Charleston?

I love Butcher and Bee, 5 Loaves and Leon’s. All 3 are awesome.

Recs for a cute straw bag?

I love this one from Shop Bette I carried in the Bahamas. I like the size because it wasn’t too large or too small perfect medium size.

Do you ever have blah days where you just stay home and accomplish nothing?

I try not too. Personally I thrive on being on the go and having stuff to do. If i sit at home I tend to get depressed and anxious so I like to stay busy. Every now and then I will binge watch some Bravo or Netflix and just chill.

How do you organize and store your jewelry?

I have two of these acrylic cases and I love them. I also use them for my make up too

I recently bought this travel set for myself and love it. I think it is a great gift. It also comes in navy in black which I think is more masculine for the boys. The set is on sale right now under $100.
