{20 Questions} The Freckles Chick

I’m so excited for today’s {20 Questions}! Freckles Chick is probably my most favorite person I’ve never met. She makes me snort-laugh every single time I read her posts, emails, and especially, InstaGram hashtags. If you don’t know her, then you are missing out on an exquisite level of sarcasm, not to mention, her gorgeous house renovation and ingenious DIYs.

20 Question - Freckles

Hello, Hi Sugarplum readers!
It’s always a fantastic time guest posting for my friend
Cassie, so I was elated to get the chance to do so again. She always dreams
up the most somber & profound concepts for guest posting; this was no
exception {sarcasm font}.
I had so much fun with this! So here goes: everything you ever wanted to know about me & more (don’t be

What is your roadtrip essential
I’ve got a notorious sweet tooth so I’d consume a ridiculous
amount of Swedish Fish & several vanilla lattes.

You’ve been handed two free round-trip
tickets…who are you taking and where are you going? 
I would take the husband to New Zealand.  It’s
always been on our bucket list.

What was your high school jam?
Jewel’s You Were Meant
For Me (so naive, so dreamy-eyed)

Would you rather have a perfect bum, or a
flawless face?
Flawless face. I can buy strategic pants to fake a perfect

What shows are you ashamed to admit are on your
Duck DynastyKourtney
& Kim Take Miami
Giuliana &

What’s your ringtone?
Creative ringtones make me ragey. I’ve had the
basic T-Mobile ringtone for ages. So not only do
not have a fun ringtone, I also don’t
have an iPhone. Still  friends? 

How old were you when you had your first kiss?
Was it meh or toe-curling?  
16 & it was meh (late bloomer?).
To make up for lost time, I became a total
 very social.  #kiddingkidding

Do you have any siblings, and if so, where are
you in the birth order?  
A brother who is 2 years younger than me. We’re
polar opposites in personality, but we always make each other

What physical quirk were you born
My right foot is a bit larger than my left foot, so shoes
never fit quite right.

What was your first car, and did you name
A burgundy Ford Taurus, dubbed Large Marge by my

What would you request for your last
A boatload of sushi!! Nigiri, sashimi, rolls, the works.
Creme brulee for dessert. Wine. Crates
of wine.

Have you ever been hospitalized, and if so,
what for?
No, thank goodness (unless you count recovery from
a C-section)

How tall are you? Do you wish you were taller,
shorter…or are you just right?
I’m 5’5, which feels just right to me. Though I wouldn’t
complain if I had longer legs & a shorter torso….hard to find tops
that are long enough.

Do you prefer to DIY or hire it
DIY! Though it’s so tempting to hire it out these days with a
toddler tornado constantly wreaking havoc around these parts.

What do you eat for breakfast?
Coffee  :) happy  Occasionally, Greek yogurt topped with granola, fruit, a dollop
of natural peanut butter & a drizzle of agave nectar.

What would you do for a living if you didn’t
need money?

Lately I’ve been dreaming of writing/illustrating
children’s books. I know it wouldn’t be as easy as it appears but
it’s such a magical niche, these storybooks for kids. It would be the
ideal creative outlet for someone like me who loves the written word &
whimsical illustrations (not saying I’m very good at either but we’re dreaming
Books are a huge part of our day around here. And
since we’re pretending that I wouldn’t need the money, proceeds would go to
charities near & dear to our hearts.

Finish this sentence: Every room
A dose of black. Used wisely, a bit of black grounds a room
(in my humble opinion).

How frequently do you wash your hair? Do you
have any hair secrets or tricks?
I usually wash my hair every 3rd day (I do shower every day,
I swear)
.  It’s very dry here in Colorado & frequent washing
would wreak havoc on my hair. I’m very low-maintenance with my hair as I
currently don’t color it & wait far too long to get
trims. I just wash the night before, comb it to ‘set’ the side part
in my hair, & pin it in a loose bun for the remainder of the
 night until I go to bed. It usually creates some loose
waves that last a couple days. My only ‘secret’ is that I’ve used
Burt’s Bees baby shampoo for years (gentle, smells good,

Will you leave the house without makeup?

I leave the house without makeup 90% of the time (even in
my pre-mom days)
. When I do slap on some makeup it’s just a dusting
of Aveda bronzer, a curling of the lashes,  & a swipe of
tinted lip balm.  Fancy. I have the misfortune of looking
like I’m playing dress-up whenever I wear lipstick (have tried every color
under the sun)
. I should probably make more of an effort since I can’t really
use the ‘frazzled new mom’ excuse anymore, HA.

You just unloaded your Halloween haul…what
candy do you go for first? 

Reese’s Peanut Butter

What totally inane talent do you

I can peel a banana with my toes. I’m forever
offering to do this at appropriate social gatherings (you know, like weddings)
to prove that I can, but no one ever takes me


Hold the phone…peel bananas with your feet?! Talk about a party trick! We need a video of that. I can’t wait for the day I finally meet the adorable Miss Freckles…and send her into a rage over my ringtone.

  1. "Very social…" haven't we all played that game?! ; ) Love FC! Great series, Cass. Even though I kind of hate you for being away in Italy… mail me some pizza?

  2. The banana thing is pretty impressive. If I could conquer that, my kids would be completely amazed every morning when I'm making their smoothies 🙂

  3. Let's not talk about HOW I discovered that I could peel a banana w/ my toes….

    I love this series! I had already been following most of the blogs of these wonderful people and the ones I hadn't, well, I started to, thanks to you Cassie. But I have to say, Freckles Chick is one of my favorite, her instagram hashtags are hilarious and Quinn is always sassy and stylish, just like her mama!
    And now I want to try the banana thing…
