Favorite TV Show: 24- hands down! JACK IS BACK!
Favorite Food: Medium rare steak- oh man… Excuse me while I go to Longhorn right now.
Interesting Fact or Talent: I played collegiate soccer and have had four surgeries because of it- but my time playing and friends made was worth every single one! Also, I might be throwing myself under the bus here, but if you ask me, I can rap the Bon Qui Qui song for you… And I’m sure most parents will have no idea what I am even talking about!
Celebrity Lookalike: Amy Adams, aka Giselle from the movie Enchanted. My friends say I not only look just like her, but embarrassingly enough, I also act like the part she plays in Enchanted! At least I will always have an easy go-to Halloween costume J
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? I would go back to KENYA. I met my (almost) husband on a mission trip to Kenya in 2012 and have been in love with the country and the people in it ever since! My (once again, almost!) husband and I want to do international missions, so hopefully we will be traveling all over the world one day. In the context of vacation, I have also always wanted to go somewhere with really huge WAVES- maybe Hawaii? The waves and the ocean in general always seems to fascinate me and also point me to God’s infinite power!
