Do you have any recommendations for good bubble tea?
I recently have been going to Kung Fu Tea. I love the Rose and Lychee Punch.
Ralijah – What is this pasta that everyone keeps asking you to make for them? It’s all over your stories? Can we get a recipe?
God! The Pasta! It’s just a little thing I make for my friends. They go so crazy over it, and no that’s not a recipe I’ll be posting anytime soon.
Can I have your meatball recipe?
There’s a post you can check out here for them.
You had this really tiny fruit in your fruit basket that is not something I’ve seen before. What was it? It looked delicious!
Cherry Plums!!! They are so good. You can find them during the summer. I got mine from Central Market!
Okay. So this is random and it was from a longggggg time ago. You and Ralph got married a few years ago back in Maine, and celebrated with these fries you guys loved. I’m staying in Maine currently and was wanting to know WHERE you got those fries from!!! What was the name of them?
I forgot all about that place! Those were bacon dust fries and they were from this place called NOSH! I can’t believe you remember that. I remember the elopement, but man… I forgot all about the fries. I thought we went and had lobster rolls, lol! Maybe we did both. I don’t know.

I love your gold initial chain. Can you explain what it means and where you got it from?
R S IV. That’s for my baby! Quatro! lol. You can get it here.
Your hair is so long!!! You’ve explained your routine, but can you do a YouTube video on your routine?
Girl what? I am tired just thinking about doing that, lol! I’ll try. I promise I’ll try. My hair is supppppper long especially in the back, and I have layers. It’s super thick on top of that. More hair means more work, and let me tell you… my arms hurt after those 2 to 3 hours.
You are so pretty!!! A lot of women struggle with feeling beautiful during pregnancy. Has that been an issue for you?
Me? I be walking in places looking like a MF’ing snack, lol. Ahhh just kidding. Honestly I haven’t really paid attention to it, but a lot of people think that pregnancy has definitely made me ‘more beautiful.’
Can you link your white sneakers? They looked like Reeboks, but I wasn’t sure.
Yup those were def. Classic Reeboks. You can get them here.
Looking for a good face mask. Any recommendations?
So I use GlamGlow. Man this mask works wonders.

Where did you get your glass baby bottles from?
I got them here. I got two orders of the small and large.
Do you have a 3rd trimester to do list?
I do! I’ll do a separate post on that.
Where did you get all of IV’s onesies? I love the neutral and dark colors.
I got all of those here.
Aven is SO CUTE! I love when you two FaceTime? Are you going to make them come back to the states?
I don’t know. I kind of let them just BE HAPPY. I can understand why they wouldn’t want to come back.
Happy 6 months!!! Are you still having your baby shower? Is your registry open yet?
Right now yes, but I’m very much like ehhhh about it. My registry is open. You can check it out here. People have been buying whatever they want though and sending it, lol. I don’t think anyone is following my registry guide. The password is Sampson123!
Can you link your wine glasses?
I have the entire Edge Collection. You can go ahead and get those here.
Where did you get your silverware holder?
Got that here.
I saw that you did a poll on dark and stormy kitchens. I really like yours, and would love to see your views on that. Will we have a post soon?
Yes. I had a post in progress, but then I started having contractions and went to labor and delivery, lol. OUR BAD. I’ll get it up soon.
I love your mud room! Can you link your baskets?
I got them from HomeGoods.
Your mortar and pestle is so beautiful! I know there’s always a backstory to everything your purchase. What is that story and where did you find this work of art? I think anyone who loves to cook would love it.
Ralph’s favorite food is Mexican food. Latin food in general. When we went to Mexico back in January I decided that it’d be good for him to take a cooking class… You know… since he barely ever cooks and is always making demands, lol. I thought if he takes this class then he can learn to make some of his favorite foods, and then he could cook for me. He forgot how to make everything. Before he arrived I ordered this for him so he’d have it to use by Cinco De Mayo. This mortar and pestle unifies my love of natural stone, a current beloved palette of green or rose, while also functioning as one of my most indispensable canteen companions. It’s really beautiful. Ralph’s name is engraved on the bottom. It is a bit pricey, but I think it’s worth it. When it would come to Ralph I would never spare any expense on showering him with gifts. Especially if it was going to be something visible in the home. You can get it here.
