What made you fall in love with Bubba?
That is an interesting question!! No I'm kidding! The first time I met Bubba I thought he was a nice guy and had a great sense of humor! But as I got to know him more and more I fell in love with him for his unfailing kindness and love for others. As well as his gift for not judging someone. Those to me represented great qualities. I have to say it but he had one of those smiles. :)
Who is the most influential person in your life that shaped who you are today? Explain.
The most influential person in my life would have to be my dad!! He has been a thriving example of someone I would like to be like. He is always honest, kind, a person to talk to or someone who just listens, he gives great advice. But most of all he has taught me lesson in my life whether I agreed with him or not, that I have taken to heart and applied them to my life and am now teaching my family. He has always been there for me when I needed it that most!!
Where is your most favorite place in the world (that you have actually been to and brings peace to your soul) and why?
My favorite place in the whole world is the canyon where I grew up!! And the reason why is because it does bring me peace and joy. There are places that I would hike to and just sit and meditate because it was quiet and peaceful. I also like it because there was so much to do swim , hike, explore, and be with those I loved and grew up with. I still to this day love to go up there and take a walk and meditate!

My favorite snack is a peanut butter and honey sandwich with bananas in the middle!! I can eat those at any time. They are so good!!
What is your default meal to make when you have people over (include the recipe)?
Bubba, would say that I make salad all the time. But I think the meal that I refer back to most of all is Homemade hamburgers and homemade french fries! Hmmm!! So good!! The recipe is to:
*Thaw about 1 pound of hamburger( I can get about three hamburgers in one pound) It really just depends on how big you want the hamburger.
*For hamburger to stick together you can use an egg and a few crackers.
*Then you can use any seasoning you would like! I like to use onion powder, seasoning salt, and garlic powder.
* Cook on grill till the fluid coming from the hamburger
*Fill pot or deep fry pan with oil about 2in deep and turn on med heat
*Cut potato's into thin or thick slices
*place one int he pot and if it bubbles and floats then the oil is ready
*place fries in oil and cook till golden brown and serve!!
*you can season fries however you would like as well!!

Tell us a funny story about what it was like to grow up with only brothers.
A funny story! Growing up my family lived up in the country where we were able to run a hot springs, a dry farm and 2 green houses full of tomato's and cucumbers. Ok so there's the background but here's the story: My brothers and I would always be on a summer swim team and one weekend we were up at Jackson hole at a swim meet and on the way home my brothers called my name from the back seat. Well as I turned around I was blue darted in the face. If you don't know what a blue dart is, it is where someone farts into a flame and the flame flies out! Well this blue dart of was huge enough to singe my eyebrows. Now that I look back on it I just say oh their just boys and laugh. But back then I was furious!!! Needless to say each day was an adventure with my brothers!!
