1. How many blogs do you read every day and what are they? (I’m talking the ones you NEVER miss)
I enjoy reading all of the blogs on my blogroll, but I read the blogs that are updated daily the most. Funny I write that because I am horrible at updating my own blog.
2. How many “best friends” do you have? Do you have different “besties” for different areas of your life?
Wow, tough question. Eric always tells me I have way too many best friends, but hey a girl needs her ladies. Here is a list of some of them...
Eric: He knows me the best. I LOVE hanging out with him and I am so blessed he is my lifelong bestie and roomie!
Leslee, Kat, & Jack (my sis and cousins): I love these ladies. I can't imagine my life without them. They love me no matter what and I laugh the hardest with them. I love the fact that we have grown up with each other and through the years we have all drawn closer to the Lord and we encourage each other in our faith.
Puffin aka Bridget: Best friend from the awkward years of middle school till now. This girl has seen be through the thick and thin and she has still loved me just the same. I love the fact we can always start back where we left off. We were roommates and it was glorious. People warned us not to room together because we were best friends but it was the absolute best! I love the fact that whenever we hang out something really strange happens, which bonds us that much closer.
Chelle: College bestie. This is no joke, I prayed to find a best friend my freshman year of college. My first semester was pretty tough which included knowing no one at school, roommates teasing me because of my Christian morals, and missing my family a lot. God answered my prayers with an amazing girl, Michelle. We have experienced so many different seasons God has placed in our lives. I love the fact we always plan on doing something when we hang out, but we always end up talking for a few hours. She is a gem and I so happy she lives so close to me now!
*I have a few more but then I will never finish answering the question. But I wanted to give out a shout out to my lawyer bestie who I admire so much, Molly. You will always be in my heart and I love you dearly!
3. What’s your daily make up routine?
Foundation, blush/bronzer, three different eye shadows (you gotta get the blending going on), eye liner, mascara, lip liner (when you have big lips like me you embrace it and showcase them), and gloss.
4. What is your ideal girl’s night?
Is there a budget involved? I would love to hang out with my girls getting our nails done, eating at a fab restaurant which we would talk for hours, and then head to the beach for a few day. That would be ideal.
5. Do you keep up with your nails/toenails or are they au natural?
If you knew me well you would know I have a large makeup tote filled with 20+ polishes, removers, cotton balls & swabs, nail filers, and clippers. I do my fingernails once a week and my toes twice a week. I strongly believe you should always have your toes well manicured.
6. What’s your best roommate story (assuming you had a roommate at some point in your life)?
Going back to my freshman year and how my roommates didn't understand my morals and how they would tease me. I remember going to my room (we had a suite style dorm. one common area, 4 individual rooms, and two bathrooms.) and I was on the phone with someone and I reached for the door handle. One of my dear roommates placed a "rubber" on the handle causing me to unknowingly touch it when entering my room. I am so glad I moved out of the suite the next semester.
7. What’s your “go to” outfit that you wear more than anything else?
Maternity jeans from Old Navy, cute tank, and not too high heels.
8. Do you have a beauty secret?
Continue to always remember, "You are fearfully and wonderfully made." Psalm139:14 God designed you just the way you are and there is no trick or secret that can make you look better than what God sees in you.
9. Did you read Seventeen magazine growing up?
Yes! The stories shocked and scared me. I blame it on my lack of knowledge and innocence.
10. How did you learn to put on makeup?
My awesome sister has always been amazing at applying makeup. I thank her for making my eyebrows less manly and more girly. It hurt, but beauty is pain! I still ask her to do my makeup when she is around.
