Her Mom Says:
Every day, whether I'm going to work or golfing [her life outside of work], I wear a gemstone pendant necklace and earrings set that matches my outfit—I have a set in pretty much every color you can think of, and I collect them from this marketplace in Hawaii on our family vacations."

Checking my daughter's Instagram account each day. Caitlin is so far away that I hardly get to see her. Looking at her pictures and seeing what she's up to brings a smile to my face each day."

Editors' note: Although I thought she'd say me, I would find Carmello bars hidden in all of her bedroom drawers. I think this quick treat was her much-needed moment-of-zen away from us four kids.—Ann

I can't leave the house without lipstick. I never feel fully dressed without it and it brightens up my face. My favorite is Clinique's Tenderheart ($15), which is a neutral shade that moisturizes my lips very nicely and complements my fair complexion."
