SOOOO, being a twenty-something year old gal, I realized that I have so many questions for the people I follow on Instagram, WordPress and even Youtube. I LOVE when influencers do Q+A’s because you get to know the person a little better with each question answered. Being that I am a newbie blogger I thought I might as well share more about me through the questions y’all might have for me about me or my life!
Here we goooooo…
Q: Whats your favorite part about being a wife?
A: I don’t have one particular thing that I love about being a wife. I think my favorite part is overall being Justin’s wife. I love knowing I’m in this with my best friend. I can admit that I love the duties I’ve taken on since being married. I enjoy taking care of Justin and our “home”. I love knowing it is us against the world and that we both hold that so close to our hearts.
Q: How long have you been married?
A: Justin and I have been married for 6 months TOMORROW. We got married on January 14, 2018. I am a new wife, still learning!
Q: How did you and your husband meet?
A: We actually met in middle school, in 7th grade. I’m pretty sure we started our friendship on Myspace and it makes us feel that #tbt feeling every time we talk about it (hahah). We haven’t been dating since then though. Although, we did date in middle school. We reconnected a year after high school and started dating serious then and now we’re here! But, we have known each other since middle school so that’s how we originally met.
Q: What is your husbands favorite meal that you make for him?
A: I make some tasty enchiladas with chicken and green sauce and also my sister’s turkey tacos that I’ve posted about before. Since I am a new wife I haven’t mastered my kitchen skills but we’re making progress. As long as I can make those two things, he’s happy! The enchiladas and the tacos are def his favorites out of the meals I have learned to cook.
Q: Do you like being a baseball wife?
A: I do. I WILL NOT sugar coat anything though because I had such a hard time adjusting to it when I first moved to Virginia. It isn’t the most ideal lifestyle and you aren’t given the best circumstances a lot of the time but I wouldn’t trade this for the world. As long as my husband is happy and chasing his dreams and I’m able to be right by his side rooting him on, I’m happy.
Q: Would you move with him again next year? Why/Why not?
A: I would. Like I said, it isn’t an easy lifestyle and we come across a lot of difficulties that we wouldn’t if we weren’t in the baseball scene but I don’t think I could do distance again after seeing what it’s like together for so long. I love sharing life with him, especially during baseball season!!
Q: What is the toughest part about being married to a baseball player?
A: Not knowing what’s next. So hard. I am such a planner and I love getting comfortable and we cannot do that in this lifestyle. We have to move at least every 6 months. We don’t know what circumstances tomorrow will bring, whether it be the fact that he can be switched to another team any moment, brought up or down and sent to Ohio, or that scary possibility that baseball could end for us any day. We cannot ever plan anything too far ahead with baseball. ALSO, being so far from my family and friends just sucks.
Q: How do you handle life as a baseball wife?
A: I go with the flow I guess? You just learn to deal with the circumstances you are given. I will always play with the cards we are dealt because we are so blessed to be where we are.
Q: What hair products do you use? Washing and styling.
A: For washing my hair I just pick up the dove shampoo! I love the Costco shampoo and conditioner though! (I know some hairstylist is going to tell me how bad it is, idc enough though.)
For styling I either curl my hair or straighten it and I don’t even know the brand of the tools I use because they’re faded off, but I’m pretty sure they’re both from target. Nothing fancy!
The products I use in my hair are mostly Drybar products because I don’t use much. I use their Prep Rally spray when I get out of the shower because it detangles AND is a heat protector. THRIVIN. And then I use their Triple Sec spray which gives my hair texture and doubles as a dry shampoo!
Q: What is your everyday go-to lip?
A: I don’t wear lipstick very much anymore but I love me some nude gloss these days. I always keep Caramelized by Bite in my bag and throw that on when needed!
Q: What are your favorite everyday lashes?
A: My favorite everyday lashes are the Ardell Wispies. I cannot get enough of those and they’re very affordable. I love the way they look everyday because they’re natural enough to get away with all the time.
Q: What is your current favorite mascara?
A: I have always preferred drugstore mascara over high end. Right now I am obsessed with Maybelline’s Total Temptation mascara. Works wonders for my little lashes!
Q: Holy Grail skincare products?
Drunk Elephant for the gold. Almost everything Drunk Elephant. Their line is incredible. Although, I do prefer Origins Checks and Balances cleanser because it leaves my skin feeling clean and minty! Other than that, DE has a great moisturizer, mask, serum and creams.
Q: What does a perfect weekend look like to you?
A: The perfect weekend would be totally different if I were back at home so I’m gonna imagine my perfect weekend in CA. I would say a Friday night dinner out with my best girlfriends and we would end up at my house drinking wine and laughing way too hard. Saturday morning would mean Justin and I sleeping in and grabbing coffee at our favorite local coffee shop and probably going shopping right after that or on some type of walk/hike. We’d end Saturday night having dinner at our favorite restaurant and come home and fall asleep way too late watching some documentary or Law and Order. Sunday would look like brunch at our favorite spot in HB, then heading to the beach to lay out and nap, sticking around until the sun starts to set. Then go home BBQ with my family and fall asleep watching a movie. I’m simple but that sounds like THE BEST weekend ever to me.
Q: What is your go-to Starbucks drink?
A: SO BASIC. I always get an iced coffee with soy milk and cinnamon powder, no classic syrup.
If it’s later in the day I like iced green tea with no classic syrup.
Q: Favorite TV Shows?
A: Law and Order SVU and Friends. DUH.
Q: Do brands send you free stuff all the time?
A: No, it doesn’t happen that often. More often lately because my blog is growing but it isn’t a lot. When they do send me stuff I have to agree to post pictures/write about the products I’m sent to help them get their name out there.
Q: What is the most difficult thing about being a blogger?
A: Being consistent and putting out content my followers enjoy, sooo difficult.
Q: Do you think it is too late to start a blog?
A: Nope. The internet is soooo big, there is always space for another blog and more reviews/posts. You can connect to someone out there! If you feel passionate about it, it’s never too late.
Q: Was it hard starting your blog?
A: Yes! I researched a lot about it because I hadn’t met anyone with a blog to reach out to when I started. I watched a lot of videos and read a lot about starting one. The hardest thing for me was getting over the fear of failure. So actually getting myself to put my stuff out there in the beginning was the most difficult thing.
