What is your favorite comfort food?   Tie between Mexican food of any type or macaroni and cheese!

Who (living or dead) would you most like to have a chat with? This is a tough one….first thought is Oprah or Jay Z.  I’d want to pick their brains on how they became such powerful business people and what it took to achieve their dreams. 

What are you reading? For the second time, I am reading The Art of Racing in the Rain. Great book!

What song do you most want to hear when working out? Hmm, anything would a good beat. So generally hip hop, rap, or classic rock.

Do you have any hobbies, what are they? In my limited free time, I like to spend time with my family and friends, so my hobbies are limited to activities we can all do together: hiking, shopping, riding bikes, etc.

What is your favorite day of the week & why? Sunday. To me there is nothing better than a lazy Sunday at home with my husband and dogs.

Do you have a favorite movie or, one that you absolutely hate?  My all time favorite movie is Love Actually.  The movie I absolutely hate is…ummmm...I don't really hate any movies because I'll avoid ones I don't want to see like Twilight, Harry Potter, etc.

What brings joy to your day?  The little things. People being thoughtful for no reason, smiles from strangers and hugs—I love hugs!
