What is your favorite holiday?
My favorite holiday to date would have to be travelling to Europe. I have had the pleasure of exploring France, Spain and Netherlands. I can’t wait until my next Europe adventure as I look forward to exploring more countries within Europe. If you go to the Netherlands, try a croquette. You won’t be disappointed!
If you could ask your pet a question, what would it be?
Since we just got a puppy, I would probably ask her why she insists on chewing on everything except for her chew toys. I would also ask her what her favorite toy is.

I would purchase party supplies or gift wrapping items. (Have you seen their selection?!) Dollar store has everything to plan a gathering!

If you could be any animal what would it be and why?
I would be a cheetah; they usually live in very hot climates which would be perfect for me as I am always cold. They are beautiful, fast and generally don’t have a lot of predators!
Movie at home, or in the theatre?
I prefer watching movies at home, being able to curl up on the couch with a blanket.
Shark diving, bungee jumping, or sky diving?
I have been bungee jumping a couple times, and after seeing the movie 47 meters down, I would prefer to sky dive.
