1.What is the longest road trip you’ve ever taken?
My freshman year of college I was a part of a choral group. Over spring break, we went on tour through the south. We started in Iowa and went through Tennessee, Georgia and finally ended up in Florida. It was a week of hanging on the bus and singing. Great memories were formed during that trip!
2.Do you collect anything? Tell us a bit about it.
I'm kinda embarrassed to admit this, but I collect makeup. I know, vain, right? I've loved makeup since I was 10 and started hanging out in the drugstore looking at all the pretties in the makeup aisle. As I've gotten older and money's allowed, I've abandoned drugstores for Sephora, Ulta and the makeup counters. Joel, fortunately, supports my habit even though he doesn't get it. So, MAC, Chanel, Dior, Estee Lauder and Urban Decay have become my collection.
3.What is your favorite part about being an adult?
Eating what I want for dinner. Joel and I would go every once in a while to a chocolate shop or Krispy Kreme for dinner when we were first married. Now, I have my two little chicas to think about, so those days of indulgence are not as frequent.
4.What song brings a tear to your eye?
"Be Still My Soul"
Here's the first verse:
Be still, my soul; the Lord is on thy side;
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul; thy best, thy heavenly, Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
5.Describe your first plane ride (how old you were, where you were heading, etc).
I was a few weeks old when my family went to Tulsa, OK to visit my grandparents.
