Questions for My Mom


My mom and I are so similar in almost every way. Growing up. people always called me her mini me and now that I'm older, we constantly get asked if we're sisters. I take that as the biggest compliment because my mom is seriously awesome! I will be more than happy if I can be half as smart, cool, and stunning as she is when I'm a mom. A few months ago,  I found a list of questions to ask your mother. I thought it would be fun if we both answered these questions and compared our answers! Because we are obviously so similar, I was interested to see what our answers to these questions would be! I feel like I learned so much more about my mom and about myself!

This past Sunday, my mom and I celebrated our very first Mother’s Day apart. Though we may have been separated by hundreds of miles, I still was thinking of her every second of the day. Mother's Day is such a special day, but it's definitely not the only time we should show the most important ladies in our lives just how much they mean to us. If you have the chance, answer these questions with your mom (or mother figure) and leave them in the comments below!

PS: Check out how I celebrated Mother’s Day a little early this year!


  1. You are my fun, passionate, joyful, smart princess and I am so lucky to call you my bestie. I enjoyed reading about us so much and loved the similarities and differences that make us who we are. I missed you on Mother's Day, but am so happy we've figured out through this first year apart to ensure that love knows no distance. I love you Hannah Bean.

  2. Your mom and you are stunning!!!
