October is here, and that means launch time!
Over here at CTM we are so excited and nervous about this new journey. We decided to dedicate our first post solely to allowing you folks to get to know us! Since it’s fun to read those “About Me” questionnaires, we thought we’d search for one and do it here! Without further ado… about us:
Our names are Rikki (29, left) and Rachelle (30, right) and we come from a family of five siblings, to which we are the eldest. We are both married mamas and live on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii.
Fun Fact: We’re Irish Twins (a pair of siblings born less than 12 months apart)
Ethnicity: We get asked this a lot. We are half Filipino and the other half is a big mix (we don’t even know them all) but they include English, Irish, German, French, American Indian, etc.
Kid(s) Names & Ages?
Rikki: Jeremiah, 9 months
Rachelle: Mason, 6 and Paige, 3
How long have you been married?
Rikki: 7.5 years
Rachelle: 7 years
How tall are you?
Rikki: 5′ 3.75″
How would you describe your fashion style?
Rikki: Comfortable & simple. Let’s just say if I like something, I get it in black and gray if possible.
Rachelle: Pretty laid back & comfortable, but I like to try different “looks” and styles depending on where I’m going and/or the season.
How would you describe your home decor style?
Rikki: Ideally it would be something along the lines of “coastal farmhouse”.
Rachelle: I love the uncluttered, cozy, rustic / modern farmhouse feel. I’m into statement pieces with minimal knick-knack types of things.
What was your favorite subject in school?
Rikki: History in high school and art in college.
Rachelle: Art, Dance & Theater
How would you describe your personality?
Rikki: My mom said as a kid I was shy and determined. I don’t think I’m super shy but I’m still determined, and I like to laugh!
Rachelle: Chill. I can be a little shy and reserved at first, but once I get to know you or get comfortable with you, the talkative, silly and dorky side of me comes out. I really am such a dork sometimes (just ask my siblings).
What is your favorite dessert?
Rikki: Tiramisu and ice cream are some of my many faves!
Rachelle: Mochi Ice Cream and Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches.
Rikki: Green & Gray
Rachelle: Purple, White and Gray
Rikki: Christmas Christmas Christmas
Rachelle: Same as Rikki! CHRISTMAS!
Rikki: Burberry Brit Sheer (the pink bottle)
Rachelle: Curious by Britney Spears. I’ve tried so many other ones, but keep coming back to this. It‘s been my favorite since high school.
Favorite thing about motherhood?
Rikki: Seeing Jeremiah learn and discover new things.
Rachelle: Hmm…the love they pour out on me.
What was your favorite TV show when you were a child?
Rikki: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Rugrats
Rachelle: Rugrats, Dinosaurs and Full House
Do you sleep with a nightlight?
Rikki: Yes! A himalayan salt lamp on the dimmest setting so I can see the baby at night.
Rachelle: Yes, a Himalayan salt lamp too!
Do you usually remember your dreams in the morning?
Rikki: Not usually unless they’re super intense.
Rachelle: Nope, once in a while I do but not usually.
What is one food that you used to hate but now you love?
Rikki: I hated spinach and mushrooms as a kid, love them now.
Rachelle: Tomatoes, I would always pick them out of my food when I was younger but now I love them!
We hope you enjoyed getting to know us and we look forward to getting to know you all! We are still figuring out where we’d like to take this blog, so if you have any post requests, questions or suggestions please let us know! That being said, let’s have some fun!
