Five Minutes with a Mom: Hannah Carter

Hannah Carter


Hannah Carter

Kid’s names and ages:

Colin is 5 and Mason is 2.

Where are you from and how long have you lived in NWA?

I’m actually from Arkansas!  Both my husband and I are–I grew up in Heber Springs and Trey grew up in Pine Bluff. We’ve been in Rogers for 7 years now.

Which songs are on your iPod right now?

Such a hodgepodge!! I love oldies and classic rock–so, The Rolling Stones, Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival to name a few.  I also love Dave Matthews Band and keep those in heavy rotation.

Tell us about a day in your life:

I stay busy with the boys!!  No day is exactly the same! I’m not a morning person though. One thing that remains constant is getting to the gym–I won’t skip a day!

Tell us about some traditions you’ve started with your kids:

Our faith is so important to both Trey and I–we want our boys to grow up in a house where we live it out everyday–not just on Sunday.

What has been one of the most surprising things about motherhood?

That I can feel so frustrated and mad at a person (or sometimes both little people) I love more than anything else on this earth.  A Mama’s love really is unconditional. It’s given me a much better appreciation of my own amazing mom!

Where do you and your family love to play in NWA?

We love Fast Lanes, the Gentry safari, and Chickfila. 🙂

Do you have any fun hobbies?

I sell some ridiculously amazing mascara in my “spare” time!

If you could vacation anywhere in the world this winter where would it be?

The beach.  Any beach. As long as it’s warm. Can I go now? Maybe without kids??

Who would you want to play you in a movie about your life?

Reese Witherspoon–even though she looks nothing like me.

What’s something you’ve always wanted to learn?

How to sew.

What three things do you always have with you?

iPhone, lip gloss, wallet

How do you relax at the end of the day?

I watch Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show–it never fails to make me laugh!

One word to sum me up:
