I love birthdays, particularly my own. :) And while I’m aware that 30-somethings should be beyond that, I do not care. Let’s blame it on me being a middle child and having a day to celebrate that was MINE and SPECIAL was a rare feat! Whatever the reason, I love my birthday and like to drag it out as long as possible!

If you could fly anywhere in the world for dinner (money is not a factor), where would you go and what would you eat?
I would travel to the Mediterranean! Give me all the hummus, tabouli, olives, vegetables…so good!
Good question! I’m liking your pick but I think right now I’d go to Paris and to this amazing local steakhouse we visited last trip. It was amazing! And I’m not usually a big steak person.
What is your favorite wine? I love a good moscato or reisling :)
Honestly, I hate the taste of wine! The smell, all of it, totally grosses me out! I’m the girl always drinking water which people always then assume I’m pregnant!
Do you have any pets? Right now, I have only one cat — a male Maine Coon named Bugsy.
No pets right now! We always had a dog growing up and I think maybe at some point we’ll get one!
Happy Birthday Jamie! Since it’s your birthday, what’s your all-time favorite birthday gift you’ve received? Also, I currently use Arbonne BUT curious about Rodan & Fields. Sooo, what’s your skin regimen? Being in our 30s has officially made me want to stop the aging process!!! Ha!
2 good questions! For the first, my favorite gift might be when Brent surprised me with an iPhone about 7? years ago. I really wanted one and was so surprised!
For the second, my skincare is pretty simple! Yes, when I turned 30 I started really researching skincare and basically ways to not look old :). I went to an aesthetician about a year ago for a facial and she was super helpful in telling me what would be beneficial with my skin type and concerns. I was considering Rodan & Fields at the time and she told me I didn’t need to spend my money on it, which was nice to hear! While I do know lots of people have had great results with it she told me all I needed was a gentle daily cleanser and a very mild exfoliator about once a week. Right now I’m using an oil cleanser (that I love!) before bed and then in the mornings I use a Burt’s Bees moisturizer with spf. Pretty easy but it’s working for me right now!
What kind of cake do you prefer ? I love chocolate cake!
If it’s homemade, strawberry is my favorite but my favorite cake ever (and I’m not a big cake fan) is the berry chantilly cake at Whole Foods. It is SO good!!
Birthdays should ALWAYS be celebrated! I will still be celebrating my birthday when I’m 80. I may not be able to blow out the candles on my cake, but I’ll try! ;)
As for my question… what is your favorite way to celebrate your birthday? I always enjoy spending the day with my mister, visiting my favorite places, and eating way too much cake.
Glad you agree on birthdays! :) the past few years I celebrated my birthday by going shopping with my mom, getting my hair cut (I always like doing that!) or getting a mini makeover at Sephora, something like that. This year my husband and I joined my parents, older brother and nephew at the science museum, then lunch and an escape room that evening. It was a great day!
Whats the one beauty product you don’t leave the house without putting on? Mine is mascara!
If I can only do one thing it would be either fill in my eyebrows (they’re pretty thin) or lightly buff e.l.f mineral powder all over for a bit of color. Mascara would be next on the list!
Where would you go on a dream vacation? A spot where you have never been before? Mine would be Hawaii and Europe.
Paris or the Italian countryside would be nice, but if it were somewhere I’ve never been maybe Greece?
Favorite place you have ever visited? For me it’s a 3 way tie between Paris, Ireland and Vienna ! Happy Birthday Jamie!!!
Thanks Shelley! Paris is my all-time favorite!
What is your favorite food to eat? Mine is sushi and crawfish. Happy Birthday as well!!!
Chips and salsa, no question about it! Thank you!
What is your favorite brand of mascara for long lashes? :)
Right now my favorite mascara is Mary Kay Lash Intensity. I also have really liked Marc Jacobs, L’Oreal and Maybelline Great Lash is always a great option!
Whats your favorite dessert? Mine is cheesecake!
Though I can easily eat a pan of brownies my favorite dessert is probably pie! Either chocolate, lemon meringue, or key lime!
What’s your guilty pleasure? Mine is getting lost in Target or Barnes & Noble for hours
I definitely spend many an hour wandering Target! That might be my guilty pleasure too, that and bubble baths! (I take at least a couple a week!)
Love your emails!
What is your absolute favorite beverage? Mine is LaCroix (and fave flavors are Lime and Lemon )!
OK, this is super boring, but it’s water! It’s pretty much all I drink, aside from the occasional mug of hot tea or the sips I take of Dr. Pepper or Cream Soda a handful of times of year. There’s no real reason behind it other than I just don’t care for flavored drinks that much! I haven’t actually tried LaCroix yet, but I’ve been wanting to! I’ll start with the flavors you mentioned!
What is your favorite brand of nail Polish? Right now mine is l’oreal.
I always tend to like essie polishes, but I don’t know that I really love them more than other brands. I don’t think I’ve ever tried L’Oreal polish so I need to change that ASAP!
What is your favorite restaurant? Mine in Tokyo Japanese Restaurant in Nichols Hills (OKC).
Another tough one! I’m always partial to anywhere with good chips and salsa…but my right-now favorite might be Whiskey Cakes? Or for a special occasion The Ranch is a-mazing!
What’s your favorite film? Mine is It’s A Wonderful Life :)
That’s a tough one! I don’t know that I have a favorite favorite, but a few on the top of my list are Singing in the Rain, The Sound of Music, and A League of Their Own! (Love It’s a Wonderful Life too!)
