I took cake decorating classes and made cakes for a few years. 

What’s the last music you listened to as a family while driving?

We listen to country and pop the most. The last thing we listened to as a family was country.

 

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Chocolate.

 

What’s the one thing in your home you want to get rid of but that your spouse won’t allow?

My couches. They are over 10 years old and leather. I want to update them with fabric couches, but since we have three boys in the house, he won’t let me.

 

Who is your favorite animated character?

I don’t watch much animation, but as a kid I loved Jerry from Tom & Jerry.

 

What are you most passionate about? 

I’m passionate about spending time with my family and taking vacations with them. I want to soak up every memory with them while they are little. Once they grow up, I’ll miss it. 

 

 

What is the furthest you’ve been from home and why?

Mexico for an all-inclusive vacation with my husband and my parents. It was a good beach getaway while our children were too young to go.

 

Do you prefer mountains or the beach?

Since I live in what I consider “the mountains,” I prefer the beach. The peacefulness of waves crashing onto the shore and feeling the breeze, is so relaxing and peaceful. 

 

Who do you most admire?

I most admire my grandma. We have always been close and I loved seeing how she loved my grandpa when he was alive. She is witty and fun.

 

Which is your favorite restaurant in town?

L’attitude Bistro in Clinton.

 

Is your family more Elvis or Beatles?

Elvis. We are country and soulful.

 

Who is the better driver?

My husband, Luke, is a better driver than I am, but I always drive. He hates to drive and I like to. 

 

Who is the calmest? 

That’s a hard question. I feel like we are both pretty calm. I guess I would have to say that I’m more calm than Luke is.

 

What is your family’s favorite hobby?

Fishing at the Little Red River below our house. Our property lines the river.

 

Where do you go to church?

We are currently looking for the perfect church fit for our family. 

 

What is your favorite memory as a family?

When we went to the beach last year. We stayed at a house on the beach and everyone was happy and carefree. Our kids enjoyed the water and we enjoyed seeing them happy.
