“If Food Is The Body of Good Living, Wine Is Its Soul.” Clifton Fadiman
Let’s Blog Over Wine…
For me? Virgin Paloma’s and a bikini it is!! Someone close took me on a baby moon and I’m having the best time. But anyways, a lot of questions. Let’s jump into it!
Food & Wine
I have a major sweet tooth. What do you usually eat when craving sweets?
I don’t have a big sweet tooth. If I eat anything I might go for fruits before the junk. If I had to choose it’d be airheads. I must say that IV has been a big fan of sweet potato pie recently. He literally goes wild for it. My little boo!
What was the name of the restaurant with the avocado bomb?
Merus Grill. The food there was super yum!
You’ve been really creative with the mocktails since being pregnant, but do you miss drinking?
Actually no. I don’t miss drinking at all. It’s not something I can’t live without. I am looking forward to sharing my favorite wine lists with you all once I’m able to.
You’ve perfected the Jammy Egg and I can never get it right. How did you do it?
Boil for 6 1/2 minutes and put the egg in a ice bath. Boom! Jammy Egg.
Are you going to have IV in the kitchen cooking? Will you be making his baby foods? I’m pregnant and wanting to make my baby foods, and was just wanting to pick your brain with the hopes of a “yes” answer so that I have something to look forward to.
I will be making all of his baby foods, and once he gets older I will be teaching him to cook. I can’t wait to experience those food moments with him. I think it’s going to be so fun.
Can you share where you got you “BLK” T-shirt?
It’s my friends line. You can order one here.
I love your leopard print one piece. Please link!
It’s sold out, but I got it from here.
Can you link your Rolling Stones Graphic Tee?! I Love it.
Yep! I got it here.
What are your favorite white tees?
Where’d you find your black pointed toe mules?
Those cuties are from Stuart Weitzman.

What books have you bought for your baby’s reading library?
- Opposite of Always
- I Believe I can
- Ellray Jakes The Dragon Slayer
- Shiloh & Dande the Lion
- Timid Tumy
- Sweet Heart: You Are…
- I Will Be Here by Darryl Farley
And sooooo many more! Reading is fundamental and something I love to do so I’m hoping IV loves it just as much as I do.
What made you choose the Elvie pump for breast feeding?
Breast feeding is a bit intimidating to me, and of course something I’ve never done before. I’ve done extensive research and I wanted something that would work well for me and my lifestyle. What drew me to getting the Elvie pump was that it wasn’t restricting. It’s silent, wearable, portable. I can cook dinner, and clean the house, or go to a movie, or dinner and be able to pump.
It is a bit expensive. For the double it costs about $500. I went through my insurance and spent a little over $300 for it. If you’re interested in it you can check out their website here.
Aven’s voice has gotten SO DEEP!!! He is SO handsome and Skylar is gorgeous. We haven’t seen many photos of them except for you occasional video FaceTime posts you allow us to see. How are they doing during this pandemic. Are they excited about Quatro? Lol! That name is so funny! By the way I didn’t realize you had a red headed brother.
Oh Man Aven’s voice got deep overnight it seems like. I was like wait a minute… what happened? lol! It has rocked everybody’s world. Skylar and Aven are doing so well! They don’t currently live in the country and they’ve been gone since March. They are really excited about the baby now. Before Ralph and I got married we talked to them about having babies and they were just like whatever. To see them so excited is exciting to me. They bought him a chefs outfit from France. Lol! Chef IV on the way.
Okay first of all you look like you’re a teenager. I need your skincare routine, and IV’s “Ralph” onesie is SO CUTE!!! Can you link where you got it?
His first onesie, lol! It was a gift from a friend. It’s a 3-6 month and it’s so little which makes me wonder what the newborn and 0-3 month looks like.
What are some of your favorite coffee table books?
I’ve ordered Kinfolk, and some others, but Potterybarn and Neiman’s has great selections. It just depends on what you like.
Where is IV’s monogrammed chair from?
Pottery Barn! I don’t know how long he’s going to be so I got him the Oversized Gray Cozy Chair. It’s so cuteeeee!!!
I am looking for some real house plants for my home in the Houston area. Any recommendations?
Houston Interior Plants has everything you could want!! I love this place!
I am obsessed with your ultrasound wall frame. Where did you get it, and what’s the plan behind that?
So I took IV’s ultrasound picture and had it printed, and got these frames in gold. We’re doing black and white photos. So ultrasound, baby feet, and profile picture once he’s here.
Have you decided on bedding for IV’s room?
No I haven’t. I haven’t got that far yet. I have looked, but there are so many options. If you have suggestions let me know!
Your belly got even bigger what seems like overnight. How have you managed not to get stretch marks? You have the cutest belly!
Thank you! My belly feels so heavy. IV is just a big baby, but in regard to the stretch marks I literally moisturize all day. Anytime my skin feels dry I’m moisturizing.
Can I get a few details about this baby shower you’re having?
Haha! Nope! I’m keeping all the details on the low until August 22nd! I will tell you it’s going to be so different and really cute.
Girl why are your Pinterest boards private?! And why is your ig private?
- Pinterest: I am planning things that require my boards to be private, lol.
- Instagram: I’m deleting people again, lol!
Advice you live by?
Give people time. Give people space. Don’t beg anyone to stay. Let them roam. What’s meant for you will always be yours.
Your skin looks amazing. What products are you using.
I wrote a post all about that here.
