Who was your favorite celebrity as a child?
Probably someone from Sesame Street. Oh! No, it was Tom Cruise. My brothers and I were obsessed with Top Gun (my father fast-forwarded through the ‘sex’ scene)
What type of pets do you have?
I have a Super Mutt. He’s a rescue baby that, to the best of our knowledge, is 25% labrador, 25% rottweiler, 25% pit bull and 25% bull mastiff. He’s my joy.
What is your favorite color?
I know this seems like a cop-out, but I really like all of them.
What is most memorable about your high school years?
Being a part of the wrestling team, going to practices, recording matches, traveling to tournaments. Stuff like that.
What word describes you best?
I really don’t know. I think that’s a better question for someone else. I’d ask Allan, but he’s at a soccer game right now.
What is your greatest accomplishment?
Moving to North Carolina when I was 22. I didn’t have anywhere to live, had no job, had no money, and only had one friend. And eight years later, I’m still here.
What drives you every day?
Right now my wedding is a good motivator. It has a lot of moving parts and I’m responsible for 95% of them.
What is your favorite food?
Tacos! Made with Old El Paso taco mix!
Where do you want to retire?
Probably right here in North Carolina. Maybe South Carolina. It’s warmer there. But my future husband would probably melt.
What is your business goal this year?
To have a job!
Where do you like to vacation?
Near water. Preferably salt water.
Who do you admire?
Jason. He’s so strong and confident. I wish I was more like him.
What is your mission?
I guess right now it’s to be the best possible partner to Allan.
If you were invisible, where would you go?
The White House, Oval Office, of course. And then to Oprah’s house.
What traits in others are you attracted to?
Well, like I said with Jase, strength and confidence. Loyalty. Generosity.
What is the kindest thing anyone has done for you?
Specifically, I was sent flowers one Valentine’s Day by friends when I expected nothing from anyone. It made me cry – I was overwhelmed in a good way. But in general, the way Allan takes care of me and makes me feel incredibly secure sometimes feels like more kindness than I could have hoped for.
How do you want to be remembered?
This sounds simple, but I want to be remembered as a nice person.
What would you do with a million dollars?
Pay some stuff off (house, car, student loan) and then invest. It’s a boring answer, I know.
If you were on an island, who would you want to be with? Why?
Is it just one person? Or can I have many? If it was one, it would be Allan. Easy. And if it was multiple, I would have my family. Allan, my parents, Jason, Laurie, Gregory and Elissa.
You have a 10 minute speech to give at a high school, what is it about?
It would be about all the positive aspects of adopting animals from your local shelters and rescue groups.
I asked Allan which one word described me, and first he said AMAZING, then he changed his mind to PERFECT. Despite his loss of touch with reality and inability to judge character, I’m still going to marry him.
