Today we’re back with part 2 of answering your assumptions about us. You seemed to like the first episode so much we’re back to finish up more assumptions since we got so many. If you missed the first episode we did answer your assumptions about us go back to episode number 101 and listen to that one if you haven’t already!
If you haven’t yet listened to that to catch you up a little, we polled you guys on Instagram asking to give us assumptions about us. We didn’t look at them before recording the first assumptions episode, and the ones we didn’t get to that we’re gonna chat about today – we still haven’t seen. So on today’s episode, you’re still getting our raw reaction to reading your assumptions about us!
Let’s just dive right in and get to the juice!!
You’re outspoken, confident in what you believe and what you stand for.
That’s so sweet, thank you. I am very outspoken. I take that as a positive compliment, it could maybe not be. Yes, that’s true.
You’ve never smoked weed or done any other drug.
I’ve never done hard drugs, but I have smoked weed twice in my life. That is not accurate for the weed part. They were all in safe spaces. The first one happened in Colorado so it was legal, if anybody has listened to the episode where Evie and I did our separate stories of how we got to where we are if you know my story at all you know one of the first sessions I ever did was of this couple Caitlin and Luke in the Sand Dunes. I photographed that, they weren’t engaged, and then I was going to go visit them because we hit it off so well and they live in Colorado so I came back to visit them while Andrew was at training for the military. During that trip, Luke proposed to Cailtin and it was on a glacier and she was in a red dress and it was epic. Then they had some weed that night and so in a very very safe space, I was with close friends. I never did it again until the summer of 2018 when we were in Michigan and it was a family reunion with Andrew’s family. And Andrews’s cousin had some, and Andrew didn’t take any but we just had some edibles.
You’re really nice but you don’t make new friends, you stick with the ones you have.
That might be true. I think it’s not true but I do have a close-knit circle of friends. I think possibly because of our position in social media and people want to be friends with us but we are a little more protective and can’t be friends with everyone. Accurate.
You’re a fun mom.
Thank you, I like to think I am a fun mom. I dance, I have a good time.
You have a great marriage.
I say yes, but also we fight more than you probably know. Me and Andrew are complete opposites, we balance each other out in so many ways but it also causes friction. Yes, we have a great marriage but it is not perfect.
You’re a little obnoxious in public.
From a stranger’s perspective? I would say yes that is accurate. I think both of us could rub people the wrong way, but I think it depends on people and what is obnoxious to them.
You want to be organized but are actually chaotic and messy.
I think there is a little bit of truth in there. I am organized in some aspects but then others not so much. That is the adventure and free spirit part of me. I would say that’s maybe accurate but is actively being worked on right now.
You never run out of energy.
I think that is probably accurate mostly. I do have days where I do, but I don’t run out of energy easily.
Not really, Evie is more of a task list.
I think that is the free-spirited part of me where I can surprise you. If someone knows me well I think they can predict, but from the outside of someone who doesn’t know me might think so, so yes.
You were extremely popular in high school.
I was not. I was a nerd and not in the popular crowd. There was a specific group that was considered popular and I was not a part of them.
You snore and drool when you sleep.
I would have a different answer than Andrew on this. I think I drool if I am on my side. I don’t think I snore but he says that I do. But any other people I am in the same room with, have never heard me snore. I have a light snore let say.
You can name more than 5 renaissance artists.
What? That is such a random thing. I don’t think I can. Nope, I can’t even name one. I can name one Leonardo Da Vinci.
You dance every day.
Yes, that is pretty much accurate.
You don’t get embarrassed easily.
Your teenage side still wishes to be with Troy Bolton.
I think it’s because I talk about how much I love the Disney channel. I mean Zac Efron is attractive but we’ll say yes sure.
You love Disney, especially the old classics like Dumbo and Peter Pan.
I do love Disney, I do not love the classics as much as other people do. However I do love Peter Pan, I don’t like Dumbo. But I love the Lion King and Little Mermaid. I love those. I’m torn on that one.
You sing very loud in church.
I don’t think so. I sing normally.
You have zero tolerance for bullshit.
I would say yes, that is accurate. I have zero tolerance for it on stupid things. Blatantly obvious.
You’ve passed up on things that are hella cozy, but not your color palette.
Maybe if it’s clothes. But I want comfortable clothes that are in my color palette. I won’t buy a lime green blanket just because it is cozy. Color palette over lots of things.
At this point, you make more income from the heart and education than your photography.
Yes, that is accurate. Ever since Eloise, I have intentionally scaled back on photography. We have both stopped our photography businesses almost.
You’re a vegan.
I am probably the most opposite of a vegan. I love savory food that usually includes meat.
Tom Holland would’ve been your Cole Sprouse if you were a teen today.
That is probably true. Oh, I don’t know. When I was a teen I did not love superheroes. I just watched all the marvel movies this fall, so now I am a marvel fan but in high school, I was not the kind of person to love them. The reason he would have been my Cole Spouse is because he was in Disney. We’ll say yes.
You never get mad.
No, I will say I am naturally not an angry person, I am naturally very happy. But with that being said I’m an enneagram 7w8, the 8 wing is very aggressive. We know what we want and go for it. I can get mad if someone is hurt or mistreated. I am not this perfect angel, I do get mad. Incorrect assumption.
You plan on homeschooling your kids while staying at home with them.
Yes, I do. I would love that, I was homeschooled all the way through and loved it. I would love to raise my kids at home and homeschool them. This is why I am building my companies the way I am so that I can still work a little bit but then fully be present with my kids at home and homeschool.
Your goal is to build a biz that functions on its own so when kids come you can make money.
Yes, what I just said.
You’re going to marry Landon.
I will say, my future is in God’s hands and whatever God’s best is for me and what he has planned. But Landon and I do have plans to get married, we are not secretly engaged. We talk about it a lot and do have plans, so yes.
Your dream rest day would include the no phone, journal, and ocean surf.
I mean yes! Have you seen my Instagram??
You’re a calm soul but always down for an adventure.
I have both. I have a calming presence. I wouldn’t necessarily say that I am a quiet and reserved person but I have a lot of peace and that might be what comes through as calm.
You’re really tiny and short.
Uh yeah. It is surprising how many people don’t realize that. Evie is 5’3” and Lindsey is 5’. Yes, we are both small.
You are super competitive and a big smack talked but have no game.
Ouch! No matter what we’re talking about: business, sports, or life I am competitive. I do enjoy talking smack to certain people. I don’t necessarily talk big and do not follow through. I can talk smack in safe environments. I talk big and I do big. I don’t feel like I have any game.
You’re older than you say.
No, you can check my birth certificate. Everyone thinks I am older, I am an old soul in a lot of ways. The way I was raised made me naturally older than I am.
You like spicy food.
I hate spicy food. Lindsey loves it, but I despise it.
You’re way less hype when not on camera.
I think what a lot of people see online is what I am like in real life. But I also have a chill side and I show that too. Today Landon and I went for a walk and I just started jumping up and down, no cameras on me. I get hyped about everything, I don’t think it is accurate.
You are tall and have your crap together 24/7.
No, I am not tall, I am short. I have my crap together 24/7, absolutely not. No one does.
You’ve never chopped your hair short.
Weird, so I have. This is the longest I have had my hair long. I tend to grow my hair out to my waist and then chop it to my shoulders or above. This is the longest I have not chopped my hair and I have experienced short hair is more work than long, so that is why I have kept it long for the last few years. I don’t have time or desire.
You never drink pop.
That’s true. I literally can’t tell you last time I had pop.
You were raised in the country but never belonged.
Interesting. I mean I feel like it is a mix, I was raised in the city and then moved to the country when I was 14. At first, I didn’t feel like I fit in, but it’s hard. Eventually, I do want to go back to farm living. It is kind of both.
You would have 10 dogs if you didn’t live in an apartment.
No, I’m not that dog-obsessed. Landon and I do want two, he wants more. Two and I am good.
You work out a ton.
Yes, I do, I work out almost every day. I work out 5-6 days a week. I will say in quarantine I worked out for the first month but then I slacked off for like 4-5 months. I do workout a ton but I failed in quarantine. But I am back to my routine and workout every day.
You can be borderline controlling.
I feel like there is an element of truth but wouldn’t call it controlling. I can be direct and know what I want but not controlling. I am very go with the flow for the most part but then there is a side of me that is intense but not controlling.
If you get started on a project, you don’t stop until it’s done.
Absolutely not. I have worked hard to curb that tendency in myself. I have forced myself to do one thing until it’s complete. So no.
Hallmark family, boyfriend, and life.
No, I don’t have a perfect life. I do not have a perfect family, boyfriend, or life. But I try very hard to focus on the positives and celebrate what is wonderful and share that. I focus on what is positive and don’t sit and dwell. There are healthy things to share online and there are unhealthy things. I try to share that my life isn’t perfect but I also try to share it healthily. No, my life is not perfect, but I tend to focus on the positive and be grateful and what I do love and that is what a lot of people see.
You only moved to LA for the biz.
For the most part, I did want to live here, but my main reason to move and live in SoCal was for business and to be close locationally for all the traveling I was doing. Ohio was nowhere near any locations I was traveling to. The travel was way too much, so yeah I moved primarily for business.
You and Landon rarely fight.
Do we ever disagree, oh yeah? We very rarely raise our voices, occasionally. A lot of ways my family handles disagreements is loud Italian and very direct, so we were taught to be so respectful but my brother and I got into screaming matches. I never thought too much of it in the safe circle of my family, but it is more normal and we are a loud family so when we are having an argument it is not uncommon for it to get loud. When Landon and I had gotten serious in our relationship there were a couple of times where I got mad and snapped at him loudly. And he has communicated so wonderfully that that is not okay for him and he takes it very seriously. We have both worked very hard that that is not a part of our relationship. If I am super hurt about it I try to communicate it gently.
You are very self-conscious about your singing voice, but you try to play it off like you aren’t.
I don’t try to play it off. I think I am very open that I am not confident in my singing. I think what tells people I’m insecure about my singing voice is the fact that I don’t share it often. I don’t publicly say that often. When I was in middle school and high school, I had a friendship that destroyed my confidence in music. This person would say stuff and it has destroyed my self-confidence and have had to fight that for the last eight years. I don’t feel like I tried to play it off, I thought I was more open. I would say that is accurate and I have issues with my singing.
