OTS Staff: Ok we are going to get on that track thanks for the rec.

OTS Staff: You are mom goals on Insta … do your daughters get jelly or embarrassed by your ‘gram?

Mercedes: I worry about that so I always ask if they’re cool if I post something about them. They actually DM me half the memes I post in my story.

OTS Staff: Family participation!!!

Mercedes: Yes! They know how to stay in my good graces lol

OTS Staff: Debbie!!! That’s so awesomeWho’s in your DMs?

Mercedes: My friends sending memes back and forth and people asking me where I bought the famous leggings from TikTok 😂🍑

Mercedes: They will transform your booty. I have no idea whose booty is in these, but it’s not mine lol

OTS Staff: What’s your secret to great ‘gram?

Mercedes: If there’s a secret, I want to know it! I just want to share a little bit of fun, happiness or laughs. And maybe a cute outfit.

OTS Staff: And great booty!

OTS Staff: We know you LOVE baby Yoda memes … has anything even come close lately?

OTS Staff: Ok and we know since the pandemic started you and Matt your husband do your daily walks … do you know exactly how far you have walked??? LOL

Mercedes: I calculated the miles over the summer and it was from here to LA and back! So now I’m guessing we made a return trip to LA and back yet again! The walks keep me sane.
