Question #136

Q: What is your favorite Saturday activity?

A: Growing up, we used to do our chores on Saturday. My mom made us each a little apron and with a list of things to do in one pocket and a candy in the other pocket to eat when we were done (and we actually waited). I'm glad my parents taught me the importance of cleaning growing up because TOO many people don't clean now as adults. It amazes me actually. We also washed the cars on Saturday and dumped the trash to the dumpster down the street. That was fun for us because we would all hang off the van. My dad was the coolest to let us do that. My favorite place to sit on the van was backwards on the tire on the back holding on to the rails on top of the van.

Now, I would say my favorite thing to do on Saturday is sleep in. I love sleeping. I also love being productive and getting things done that I need to get done what ever that may be, but also have time to relax and even better if I get to fit something fun in too... like a hike or some sort of adventure... but that doesn't always happen, so I'm happy with sleeping in. It's the little things in life when you get older. ha ha.

Question #135

Q: What's your favorite thing to do in the summertime? Why?

A: Growing up I LOVED having sleepovers with my friends, catching Blue Belly Lizards and frogs and tad poles in the creek. I loved my friends and I loved animals and I loved being outside exploring. I still do. Now... I would say I love being outside. Summer isn't quite the same because I have to work all year round, but when I get the chance I love to go travel, go on road trips and hikes and explore and enjoy the sunshine and outdoors.

Question #134

Q: Who was my favorite Jr. High School Teacher?

A: This one is a little harder for me. Obviously you don't spend the same amount of time with Jr. High teachers as you do with your elementary teachers. I remember loving my English class with Ms. Nelson. I also loved Mr. Pate for Woodshop. I liked Ms. Carr enough for Art that I took her class for two years. Mr. Winn was a pretty awesome Science teacher. I'm impressed with myself that I even remember all of my teachers names. Ha ha

Question #133

Q: What is your favorite YW value?

A: My favorite Young Women's Value has always been and will always be Individual Worth. It has always had special meaning to me because I felt like it took me a while to find mine. Now that I have found my individual worth and know how important it has been to me, it is easy for me to recognize people that don't have it and how much it would help them to realize their individual worth. It took me a while, but once I figured out my worth, I became a lot more confident which opened a lot of doors for me and made me happier overall.

Question #132

Q: Who was your favorite elementary school teacher?

A: I liked a lot of my teachers, but I would have to say my 6th grade teacher, Mrs. Gans. Not only did I love her as a teacher because she was so nice and fun, but we also lived in the same neighborhood, so I think she had a special place in her heart for me. Which made us have a special little bond.

Question #131

Q: What is your favorite ice cream? Why?

A: That is so hard because I have a lot of favorites. General favorites are chocolate and mint and chocolate and peanut butter. I just love those flavor combos! If I'm getting a pint of ice cream, I go for the mint cookies and cream. YUM! I just love ice cream though. When I was eating a lot of Gelato in Italy, my favorite was always Nutella or Chocolate Hazelnut.

Question #130

Q: If you could buy your own car, what would it be and why? What color?

A: If you would have asked me this as a teenager, I don't know if I would have had an answer for you. I don't think I really thought about or cared too much about cars. I couldn't drive, so what did I care? Once I could drive, I was just happy to have a car to drive, so I still didn't care. I could have told you what colors I liked. For a while I loved the silver cars.

Now that I am an adult, I actually just bought my first car. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted because I never really had looked into cars and researched them much before. After a few months of researching, I bought a car that I love. I bought a 2014 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring. I love the way it looks inside and out. It's a charcoal gray and it has leather seats that are heated, it has a sun roof, blue tooth and backup camera and all the bells and whistles. It's awesome and gets amazing gas mileage and has a great sound system and it drives so smooth and quite. I could go on and on. I love my car and I'm glad I took my time and shopped around and sound something that I really love because I pretty much signed my life away when I bought the car and I'm going to be driving it for a LONG time. :)
