ask me anything?

I've been getting a lot of emails & questions from you guys lately.  Also, some of you have requested certain posts, etc. & as much as I'd love to do them ALL, I think it would be easier to just do a post for you guys answering your questions.  SO, feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions or requests, or you can email me at lswilliams08@yahoo.com

Ask away!  [I'm pretty open, but nothing TOO crazy personal please ;)]

And I'll leave you with a picture of these cuties :)

  2. I know I could just ask you at church but I always forget, how do you do your hair with the loose curls like you usually wear? What curling iron do you use? Your hair always looks like a disney princess! ashley

  3. I second the question about how you do your hair :) also, I've always been curious as to what your husband does for a living? I noticed he is in school and was wondering how you guys make it work with you staying home, owning a house, etc

  4. YES I second the hair question! I actually like to do my hair in a similar style & in just a couple hours time the curls fall :/ Super frustrating! What products do you use etc.???

    2nd question, and I hope this isn't too personal, when do you think you'll being trying for baby #3 (if at all)?

    3rd question, (I know I'm really juicin' it lol) How long does it take you to get ready? Like hair, makeup & such. Takes me FOREVER!

  5. I have some religion questions, if that's okay. I was checking out the LDS site you link to in your What We Believe section and whilst I'm definitely not Mormon, the faith interests me greatly for some reason. I live in the UK and it's practically unheard of here;

    How do you think being Mormon has shaped you? Who do you imagine you'd be if you were not deeply faithful?

    Would you and your husband accept if either of your children decided that they did not believe in Mormonism and chose a different faith? How do you imagine that would affect your relationship with them?

    And then I have a non-faith related question;

    You married and settled down very young. Would you be happy for your daughters to go down the same path or would you prefer for them to wait a little longer?

  6. Fun! I second (or third) the makeup routine! I'm also curious how often/your favorite stores to shop for your clothes... You always have cute new clothes in your pics!

  7. I have some questions about breastfeeding. I just had my first baby, a boy, 3 weeks ago and 1 week ago I stopped bfing. The pain was too much to bear and it wasn't getting any better. I was losing my mind and my mental state was not very healthy lol! My sisters both successfully breastfed their kids and they are being very critical about my decision. They make me feel awful and I was wondering if you had this sort of judment when you stopped with Aubrey (I remember reading you switched to pumping after a couple weeks because of issues) and how you dealt with it?

    And also, for next time, do you have any tips on how to succeed with the next baby? Any creams that worked well for you, just anything? I'm really determined to have it work out.


    And one more question that is sort of random but I've been wondering: how did you lose the baby weight so fast with Aubrey and Kate? Your tummy is completely flat! I'm fairly thin but still have quite a pooch and anxious to get rid of it. Any tips would be great!

    Thanks Lisa

    1. Did you see a lactation consultant before you stopped. It saved me. I had one come to my home and she found out I had something called Reynaud's Syndrome. Easy solution of taking B100 complex(B6 vitamins) 3x a day. I weaned off the vitamins after 4weeks, and voila, no more pain. Best of luck. I vividly remember one nursing session where my mom had to latch my daughter bc i couldn't bear do it myself. Don't give up hope, you and your baby will love the BF bond.

  8. You are the cutest seriously! My favorite blog!
    I'm Pregnant with my second and I'm really nervous about transitioning with a 2 1/2 year old and newborn! Any tips or things you wish you knew before little Kate came? My husband is working full time and in school. I am lucky enough to stay home but It's still going to be hard because I'm not going to have a lot of help.

    :) You are a great mother and your girls are adorable! Thank you!!

  10. I remember reading that you had trouble concieving Aubrey and Kate and had to use Clomid. Can you go into more details about your infertility troubles? We've been trying for our third for a year now and no luck.

  11. When was the last time you cried and why?

  12. Clomid journey- my son was conceived thanks to 50mg of clomid and I love to hear how it worked for others.

  14. That’s so generous from you, I’ll try not to be very gossip!
    I would like to know your love story more in depth: how you met, your first dates, the proposal… and any suggestions to have such a happy marriage as you both seem to have.

  15. I'd like to hear about your breastfeeding success with your second child and what advice you can give since you've been on the formula side and breastfeeding side of things. :)

  16. When was the last time you had a fight with your husband and what was it about? (Sorry if that's too personal!)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I was just wondering if you can do a post with stories and lots of pictures of highschool, and the relationship with your husband while in highschool. Just a highschool post! That's what i've been really wanting to know!

  18. Will you ever start doing fashion posts? I love your clothes!

  19. I had another question! Have you ever thought about doing YouTube vlogs? You're really funny in your writing and it would be awesome to actually get to see you and the family progressing! It can also earn you a little extra money if you partner with them! =]

    ReplyDelete
  20. YES PLEASE on the youtube vlogs!! I know I said it before and you said you'd be too shy but that would be SO cool! You could do the most awesome day in the life vlogs! Think about it!

  21. how did you afford the house? what price range was it in? how much deposit did you need? - sorry if its too personal :P

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'd be interested in tips for living on one income. (I think) I remember reading you didn't decide to stay at home until after Aubrey came. Was that an easy decision? My husband and I are expecting our first, and to keep my current job and afford day care we'd be losing money so I will be a stay at home wife/mom soon. I'm excited and it feels really right, but we'll definitely be tightening our belts. :)

  23. How many kids do you plan on having? I'm not sure if I've asked this before or if you've already answered it but what does your hubby do for work?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Makeup/clothes/hair tutorial videos!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Definitely what your hubs does for work and if its not too personal how in the world do you stay home, but afford to buy a house in CA no less in the same year that you buy a car and have a baby

    1. While your hubby is in school? Just really careful financial planning? And if so, did you use some particular budgeting/financial planning approach?
