Meet the 2010 mother/daughter look-alike winners

by Coastal Mommies... on Sun, 05/09/2010 - 7:31am

The Savannah Morning News and its online community CoastalMommies.com hosted a mother/daughter look-alike contest in 2009 that was such a hit, we decided to do it again.

We received 142 entries, and our online photo page had more than 45,000 page views. (You can view all entries at the bottom of this page)

Judges selected Stephanie Fulcher and her mother, Ann Barrow, as the 2010 winners, commenting that they looked more like sisters in the winning photo. Fulcher and Barrow say they are constantly told that they look alike. "People say we look like sisters. I love it," Barrow said.

The Wilmington Island residents received a spa package to Glaze Beauty Boutique & Day Spa in Rincon.

Question: What is your favorite thing to do with your daughter?
We love to talk. She comes over and we sit and have a glass of wine together, and we also go to the same functions a lot.

Q: What is your favorite memory from her childhood? She and her younger sister, Jenifer, used to do little skits for us. They would dress up, get up on a stage, dance and sing. It is one of my favorite things.

Q: What's the best present given to you by your daughter? I am friends with both of my daughters. It is the best gift.

Q: What is the funniest memory you have with your daughter? We watched "Survivor" and played the Survivor Game with friends. We re-enacted what the players did on the show and did all kinds of crazy stuff: climbed a tree and rang a bell, ran obstacle courses, and we walked over a swimming pool using a board - in February. We laughed so hard and just had a ball.

Q: What have you learned from your daughter? She helps me with what's trendy to wear. She'll be real frank about what looks good.

Q: What is one activity you want to do with your daughter? We would love to go on a cruise.

Q: In what ways do you think you're like your daughter? We're both organized to an almost perfectionist point, we are generous to a fault, both stubborn, both love pets, both like to read.

Q: And not? She's more the talker and I'm more of the listener. She's more sports-oriented and I'm more home-oriented. She's a little more assertive than I am.

Stephanie Fulcher
Age: 43
City: Wilmington Island
Occupation: Export analyst, Buckeye Technologies Incorporated, Garden City

Question: What is your favorite thing to do with your mother?
Getting pedicures, playing cards with friends, and we like to share a bottle of wine or two on occasion.

Q: What is your favorite memory from your childhood?
Spending summers at the pool. Mom worked part-time and she would take my sister, Jenifer, and I to the pool.

Q: What is the best gift she has ever given you? Besides her youthful look, teaching me how to be an independent woman.

Q: What is the best advice she gave you?
She's always told me, people come and go in your life, but your family is always there, and troubles always pass. No matter how bad it seems it will eventually pass.

Q: What have you learned from your mom? She taught me to be self-sufficient and to give with your heart.

Q: What is one activity you want to do with your mom?
A seven-day cruise.

Q: In what ways do you think you're like your mom?
We are both planners and readers. We both like to decorate, shop and socialize. We're so much alike it's crazy.

Q: And not? She's more patient than I am and a better listener. I'm the talker. She's the listener. Also, her foot is a lot smaller than mine. She loves shoes and has the coolest pairs, and I can't borrow them. I always say, "Why didn't I get a foot like you?"
