6 things you might not know about me...

1.// What is one of your silly quirks?
I have an irrational fear of leaving the shower curtains closed in my house.

2.// What's your favorite beauty secret or product?
Favorite product is definitely coconut oil--it is by far the best make-up remover I have ever tried (my eyes get extremely swollen if I go to sleep with even the smallest bit of eye-liner or mascara left on...and this has never happened since switching to coconut oil). I also use it as a moisturizer, shaving cream, hair serum, cooking oil..the list goes on and on!

3.// What's your favorite or go-to outfit? 
As you can see from the side-view above, dresses are about the only thing covering up that bump.

4.// What's the coolest thing you've made?
I am the opposite of crafty--I try to be sometimes (only when able to follow a step-by-step tutorial of course), but it always takes me 10x the time/effort as it would take the average person. So I am very proud of this ladder that I spruced up. Ben spotted it at our favorite brunch spot and immediately wanted it...something about it encompassing the 'American Dream'...anyways, I decided that if we were going to have it in our home, I would figure out some way to make it cute. And I did!

5.// Share one of your favorite pics. Tell us why it's your favorite.
I love this picture of us because it was taken before 'Ben & Nicole'...after all, I was only at Ben's house to hang out with his sister. We thought this prom pose was very funny...and then later that year (2008) I made this my facebook profile picture to really make things official.

6.// What's your favorite part about marriage? 
There are so many favorites about marriage...but one that comes to mind right now is having someone that is always on your side supporting you. It's nice to know that when I am busting out moves to this song (that Ben has never heard before!!), there's at least one person who won't think I'm crazy. Right Ben?!

    Sweet! Look forward to reading it and any other baby updates!! :)

  11. I loved all of the answers that you gave for the questions. Some made me laugh (shower curtain & prom pose), others were super cute (your ladder craft, dress pic-I miss y'all & Beaufort, and you & Ben pic), and others provided really helpful info. (coconut oil). I went to work right away on the tag. ;)

  12. loved this post, friend! i esp loved that picture of you and ben and the story behind it. and speaking of coconut oil, i totally thought of you when i saw some at the grocery store the other day. i need to try that myself!

  13. oh my goodness, you're from beaufort! And you know Ilene?! I feel like we should already be friends ;)

    Beaufort is my hometown! So glad you commented and I found your blog.
