Northwest Washington. I am the 5th generation in our county, and my family was some of the original homesteaders.

Neither Chris nor I really like watching any sports. Maybe if Hayes decides to play any sports, we will become a little more sports minded.

I really like the mango smells at Bath and Body Works, and Sauve dry shampoo smells just like it! haha

20. What is your favorite face cream?
I have never really used one.
21. Favorite baby/kids products?
Um I have a love hate relationship with the Bjorn. Hayes loves it and I hate wearing it. He is just too heavy for me, and it starts killing my shoulders after a couple of minutes. Hayes loves it so much, he will find it laying around the house and try to put it on himself. My dad carries him around in it most afternoons. They do work! haha
22. People watcher?
Not only am I a people watcher, but I tend to be a people commentator. Kind of in a sarcastic petty sort of way. I know, I know I am horrible. I have pretty thick skin though, so I always figure people are probably saying as bad or worse about me too, and I really could care less.
23. Are you a morning or night person?
In high school and my early 20s I was definitely a night person. Then I don’t know what happened but I want to be in bed by 9 now, and I love getting up early and getting things accomplished. Must have been my maternal clock or something.
24. Do you have any pets?
We have 2 dogs. Scout an old Boxer and Diesel a Bull Mastiff

25. Any new and exciting news you'd like to share?
I do but I am not sure when I will be able to spill the beans. Oh but we did move last weekend that was pretty exciting. I haven’t taken any pictures yet though, because the house is still over run with boxes and they are driving me crazy! It kind of sucks moving on a Sunday, and then having to go back to work the next day. Oh well the weekend is almost here. Hopefully I will get a lot accomplished then.
26. What did you want to be when you were little?
Either a kindergarten teacher or a stay at home mom. I am still working towards the second one J
27. What is your favorite memory?
3 different ones stand out. Chris and my first date (4/20/2006), our wedding day(6/30/2007 and the day Hayes was born (12/9/2011) I know none of those are specific memories but they each bring back lots of good memories. Hmm… maybe I will write about our interesting first date sometime.
28. Are you a cat or dog person?
I like dogs when they are outside and I don’t have to take care of them. Cats have a tendency to attack my hair.  Yeah I am not really a huge animal fan. I used to like them more, but having a child definitely fills any void that an animal used to.
29. Are you married?
5 ½ years and loving it more all the time.

30. Always wear your seat belt?
Yes, in fact it feels weird to even drive through a parking lot without it on.
31. Been in a car accident?
I have been in couple of fender benders but none of them were really my fault. The first one I was in high school and someone backed out in front of me on my parent’s road and I ran into the side of them. Then another time I was taking a left through an intersection and someone took a free right, right into my passenger side fender. Then I was driving and it was pouring down rain and the light changed to yellow and the person in front of me slammed on their breaks and stopped in the middle of the crosswalk. I had almost bald tires, so I just slid, I tried down shifting and that didn’t help either. Let’s just say the push bumper on my truck made a Geo Metro into a 2 seater. So I guess that one was kind of my fault, at least that is what the cops said. ;( Those were all when I was in high school or right after though. I haven’t been even close to an accident in over 10 years.
32. Any pet peeves?
Clicky pens. I have told the guys that I work with that it is a privilege to have those type of pens. A few of them have lost this privilege due to excessive clicking. Haha. I am the only female, I get what I want!
33. Favorite pizza toppings?
Bacon (not Canadian) pineapple and sausage with white sauce.
34. Favorite flower?
Tulips. Good thing I live by the tulip capital of the US!
35. Favorite ice cream?
I don’t eat ice cream very much, but sometimes in the summer I like to go get a hard ice cream cone with a waffle cone and either Maple Nut or Blackberry cheesecake.

36. Favorite fast food restaurant?
Maybe Burger King? I don’t know, I also have a love hate relationship with fast food. I crave it ALL THE TIME then I have it, and think eh it really wasn’t that good, and I wish I didn’t waste all those calories. So frustrating!

37. How many times did you fail your driver's test?
I passed them both the first time.
38. From whom did you get your last email? 
Kelly at Kellys’ Korner. She took time to respond to a question I had. It kind of surprised me. I have no clue how she finds the time to do all she does!
39. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? 
I don’t even have a credit card. Let’s just say hypothetically though I could easily spend all my money at Costco. They have everything.
40. Favorite book?
Gone with the Wind. I loved it until the very end, and then I cried like a baby and I was so mad. I read it in high school, and I stayed up all night after I finished, crying. I really think that book should have had a happy ending. I usually read historically Western romances. They have to end happy too.
41. Like your job?
I love the people that I work with, but the actual company and its politics really make me mad.
42. Broccoli?
Yes, as long as it has either cheese, butter or ranch to accompany it.
43. What was your favorite vacation?
Probably our honeymoon. We went to Lake Chelan for the week and it was just so relaxing and carefree. As a child my favorite was probably DisneyLand. I hope I can take my kids there someday.
44. Last person you went out to dinner with?
I’m sure it was Chris, but I have no clue when that was! haha

45. What are you listening to right now?
Silence. Ok maybe not complete silence. I hear mice clicking and keyboards and the heating system. The engineering office is always ghostly quiet.

46. What is your favorite color?
Sparkly red

47. How many tattoos do you have?
One little tiny one that I got when I was in Costa Rica at 15. Haha rebel
48. Coffee drinker?
Yes! I don’t drink it so much for the caffeine as I do for the taste. My morning always feels like something is missing if I don’t have my coffee. I prefer the kind that I make at home in my Keurig to buying at a coffee stand. Unless it is blended or iced then I like the coffee stand better. J
49. Favorite drink?
Alcoholic- gin and squirt, Non Alcoholic-I don’t know, water? That is the one I drink the most.
50. What word describes you best?
Caring. I am always caring for other people i.e. Chris, the kids. Haha

I have never seen the movie nor read the book Gone with the Wind. Apparently I'm missing out.
