I have been thinking it’s time for you guys to get to know a little more about me! I don’t tend to share a lot about who I really am, but you asked the questions, so I’m giving the answers!
Soooo I’ve compiled a list of the top 20 questions asked on my Instagram – @nannycarly! (If you already do know these facts, consider this an extra treat 😉 ). Let’s get started!
- Do you have any siblings?
YES. I actually have 7 siblings! 5 brothers and 2 sisters, and that’s not even counting in-laws (I have 4 siblings in-law). Also, since I know this is always asked next – yes, we all have the same parents. And yes, they’re crazy. -Love you, Mom-
2. How old are you?
I’m 22! My birthday is November 15, 1996. Fun fact: I was the only one of my moms kids that was born on their due date.
3. How long have you and Eric been dating, and where did you meet?
I love this question :’) We’ve been dating officially for 18 months. We met at church in August 2017, and went on our first date just 5 days after we met! (Keep a lookout for a blog coming later this week with the full story).
4. What are your workouts and diets?
I’ve shared this before on Instagram, but I get all of my workouts from Seth Heckel. He is the BEST and customizes new workouts each month for what my goals are.
Seth also gives me a loose diet plan which is super awesome for what I need. Basically, right now I kind of just eat whatever I want because I’m trying to bulk up. Mostly focusing on eating foods that are high in protein and good fats.
5. Will you have your own kids in the future?
I go back and forth with this.. It’s so nice to nanny and get my baby fill then still get to go home to a quiet house, haha. Butttt, I know that I would love to see what a baby version of me and my future husband combined would look like :’) I’ll probably end up having 2-3 kids of my own some day. Far, far in the future…
6. What state were you born in?
Washington! I was born and raised in Yakima for 17 years, then moved to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho for my senior year of high school.
7. Do you have any nicknames?
So, so many… Where do I begin? Eric’s favorite nickname for me is Carlito Romero Sanchez (no idea where he got that, but its stuck for almost 2 years so I dont think its going anywhere, HA). In high school most of my friends called me Carls. Then in college everyone I knew called me Carl. There’s also Carly J, CJ, Charlie, and Carlita Rosita Anna Maria (from my mom).
8. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see so many different ways that my life could turn out over the next 5 years.. There’s seemingly no end to the situations that could change in an instant.
Right now, I’m hoping that in 5 years I’m married, finished with my bachelors degree and potentially a masters too, and mayyyybe trying to have a baby.
9. What’s your Starbucks order?
If I had to choose, it’d be a grande Strawberry Acaí Refresher w/ light ice. But I would choose a flavored Red Bull from a coffee stand ANY day over Starbucks. Apparently thats only a Pacific Northwestern thing though?
10. If you were gifted a puppy right now, what would you name it?
Interesting question, because I don’t really like dogs… But if I got a puppy I’d hope it was one that doesn’t shed and isn’t hyper! And I think Jax would be a cute name! I’ve alllways wanted a kitty named Kiki though. How cute would that be?!
11. Are you a Christian?
Yes! More specifically, I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 🙂
12. Did you grow up in the LDS church?
Yes. As I mentioned in a previous post, there was a like 3-4 year hiatus where I wasn’t an active member when I was about 16-20. But I was raised in the church.
13. Have you ever thought about starting a Youtube channel?
I wish I had the guts to do something like that! I am so awkward on camera though, and I swear my brain takes twice as long as other peoples to process information, so making videos longer than Instagram stories would be a struggle for me, ha.
14. What is your major and what year are you in school?
Currently I am working towards a bachelors in Psychology with a certificate in Public Relations. However, I’m only a Junior so I’m considering switching my major to Public Relations and minor to Psych! Such a big decision though!
15. How many families have you nannied for?
Only 2. The Edmonds, and one before them.
16. How long have you been a nanny/ plan on nannying?
I’ve been nannying for a total of almost 2.5 years. When I started I only thought it would be a summer job, but I loved it so much, it led to much more than I had ever anticipated. Now I’m planning on nannying through college, when hopefully I’ll be able to find a “real” job. (kidding, I’m well aware that nannying is a real job).
17. How did you start nannying for the Edmonds family?
I met the Edmonds through their friend that I had been babysitting for. It started out as me just babysitting when their nanny needed time off. But because she was going back to school, they asked me if I would be willing to move with them and be their full time/live in nanny! Now it’s been almost 2 years since I met them, and somehow I’m living on my own in Missouri… by CHOICE. If you’re curious, I wrote a whole post describing how I came to be “Nanny Carly“, and it’s tagged here!
18. How often do you watch Aspen?
I’m lucky enough to still watch the kids two days a week while I’m in school full-time. I’m often there more than that just to help out a little extra though.
19. Do you live with Meghan and Jim? Are you a full time live in nanny?
I did when I first started nannying for them! I don’t anymore because I’m now in school full-time and only able to nanny part-time.
20. What’s your favorite thing about Aspen, Hart, and Hayes?
This one is TOUGH. I have so many favorite things about each one!
For Aspen, probably her humor. For example, we were playing a memory card game earlier today, and I told her it was her turn, but her head was down and she wasn’t going. So I said, “Aspen, you can go.”, and she looks up and replies, “Sorry, I’m wiping my tears.”. Like what?! LOL. I find myself cracking up constantly at her comments or even just random things she does. That girl is hilarious!
Hayes just started dancing, and oh man, its the cutest. He’ll just hold on to the couch and the minute he hears a song he’s dancing. Even just a hearing a few beats he’ll have the straightest face, his head is bobbing, and his knees are GOIN. I love it.
And Hart gives the BEST hugs. I’ll go to get him from his crib and he instantly just wraps his arms around my neck, squeezing as hard as he can. I swear nothing can melt your heart like a Hart hug.
If there are any more questions that you’d like to ask, I’d love to answer them! Comment below and I’ll reply! ❤
