Questions from Laura: Answered.
Q: What gives you inspiration?
A: It’s quite simple, really. Our families, our beliefs, + our passion for creativity. ‘Nuff said.
Q: What three words best describe you?
A: Note: please don’t define us by these 3 words alone! haha 3 words that describe Amber are organized, adventurous, + thankful. 3 words that describe Aubri are optimistic, passionate, + friendly.
Q: What is your favorite food?
A: Seeing as that we both love to eat, this one is tricky! Amber’s favorite food is chicken shawarma. Aubri’s is watermelon.
Q: What is the best gift you have ever received?
A: Having the chance to be wombmates.
Q: What is your favorite book and why?
A: Amber loves John Grisham books. She loves getting sucked into books and his legal thrillers are so fun! Aubri must admit that she doesn’t read much, but one she did read recently and thoroughly enjoyed is Kathryn Stockett’s The Help because it’s a fun, quick read but has lots of moral lessons embedded throughout.
Q: What is your dream career and why?
A: Being an amazing wifey + mom definitely comes first for both of us. Why? Well, just think about it. After that, the next obvious choice is co-hosting a TV show together. We’d be a killer duo! Besides…we don’t want to just watch Netflix…we want to be on Netflix.
Q: What is your hobby?
A: This website! Good thing we like it, right?!
Q: What is your favorite post on your blog and why?
A: Amber’s favorite post is “41 Ideas for Cute Ways to Say Thank You with Candy.” She loves good puns and play-on-words, and this post is a big list of them. Some of them she’d heard before, but most came straight from her smart little noggin. Plus, she thinks you can never show enough gratitude and the littlest acts of love can mean the most! Aubri’s favorite post to date is either “How to Throw a Very Hungry Caterpillar Baby Shower” or “Winter Survival Night – A Ladies Event [& FREE Printable].” The baby shower, which was thrown from Amber, was a really fun theme to work off of and the pictures were so cute. Aubri loves the rustic, classic style of the event. The Winter Survival Night was not only a cozy night with friends, but Aubri really got to stretch herself with Photoshop design.
Q: What is your favorite thing about blogging?
A: Our favorite thing about blogging is being able to be creative and share our ideas and inspiration with others.
Q: How do you promote your blog?
A: Social media all the way! Woot woot! We are on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter and really work to build our following. Also, giveaways are a super fun way to give back to our followers while expanding our reach.
Q: Why do you blog?
A: Especially since becoming mothers, we believe that creativity is the chocolate cake of daily life: it makes life more fulfilling and rich, especially when shared with others. We find true joy while inspiring others in their capacity to create.
