11 Random Things About Me:

  2. I once appeared in an STP commercial with Johnny Cash and Richard Petty.
  3. I’ve visited 47 of the 50 U.S. states and that number will increase to 48 when I visit Alaska this summer.

  5. I’ve never been to an NBA game, but I have been to MLB, NFL, NHL, and MLS games.

  8. I have four tattoos.
  9. I worked in the music industry in Nashville for eight years and met lots of really cool entertainers like Garth Brooks, Tammy Wynette, Steve Miller, ZZ Top, etc.  Of course, there were some jerks, too, but it was a fun job overall.
  10. I once sang on the stage of the Ryman Auditorium (home of the Grand Old Opry).
  11. Bob Harper once made me puke (just a little) in one of his spin classes.

My Answers to the 11 questions from Renée:

  1. When is the last time you swam in a pool?About three weeks ago at the gym.
  2. Do you carry a donor card?  Yes, always!
  3. Would you ever consider living abroad?  Sure, if the right opportunity presented itself.
  4. What car would you love to buy if you could afford it?  I use the dream about certain “status” cars when I was younger, but I don’t care as much as material things like that at this point in my life.  As long as it looks nice, is reliable, and will get me from point A to point B, then it’s all good.
  5. Do you feel younger or older than your current age?  Definitely younger!  I’ll be 48 in less than a week, but I still mentally feel like I’m in my twenties.
  6. What was your favorite movie or book as a child?  I was a huge fan of the Little House on the Prairie books.
  7. Toilet Paper – over or under?  Over.  Under is just wrong. P
  8. Are you usually late, early or right on time?  As much as I hate to admit it, I’m usually a few minutes late.
  9. Have you ever been on a roller coaster?  I used to *love* roller coasters.  Since having a spinal fusion in my neck several years ago, I can’t ride them any longer due to the hardware in my neck.
  10. What song always makes you happy when you hear it?  “Walkin’ on Sunshine” by Katrina & The Waves
  11. Name four things you always have with you?  My purse, iPhone, Kindle, and keys.
