I have since backed off the whole having to purchase foundation that was not made for Caucasians stage. Thankfully I am a little darker complected and I can get tan lines on my lunch hour sitting outside for 25 minutes. I will hit up the tanning bed before a vacation in the winter or if I am feeling especially ugly (what? we all have those days right?) but I try to stay away as much as possible. Although looking back at that picture I should probably pick up the pace because dang, that was hot.
4. Jules asked something that a few of you were curious on “What does your husband do that allows you to own a home, a lake cottage, and take several vacations at such a young age?”
Shawn and I spent entirely way too much time thinking of some awesome answer for what his occupation is. He thought he should be the person who invented the cordless telephone and I thought he should settle on being a pro croquet player. Certainly anything “pro” has to make some cash right? But no. He has a normal old title of Account Manager for a local company that sells rubber parts to the automotive industry and other exciting places like air conditioning companies. At least I think that’s what they do? I try to listen to his stories while scrolling through Instagram and we all know how that goes. It doesn’t. But here’s how we actually are able to do what we do. For starters, we don’t have kids or college debt. This may or may not be because some of us didn’t attend college but that’s whatever. Secondly, we save as much we are able to on a monthly basis. I have learned that if you just set-up your direct deposit to actually go into a savings account, it’s a lot more apt to stay there. Because we are dedicated to building up our savings account it allows us the opportunities to spend on some bigger items when the opportunity arises. We are not fans of debt and aside from mortgages, we try to stay away from it at all costs. If I don’t have the cash to pay for it, I don’t need it. Thank you mom and dad for teaching me your wise ways.
5. Ending on an easy one that doesn’t require much thought or explanation…Helene asks “What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Hash tag I ask the hard hitting questions.” Hash tag lemon and peanut butter combined. Don’t knock it til you try it. And when you do try it, get ready for an explosion of goodness in your mouth. Oh right. That was an awkward statement.
