1. Where were you born? and your parents? what is your ancestry?
My Minnesota born and raised parents moved to San Francisco after they were married and became pregnant with me while they were living in China Town. They moved to Denver just 4 months before I was born. My Dad is full blood Swede and my Mom is German and Norwegian.
2. What is your least favorite memory from those awkward high school days?
Oh my gosh...in 4th grade I was bulled by a girl that lived a few blocks away from me and she would yell at me from across the street as we walked home from school. She got what was coming to her when she got her period in 6th grade while wearing white pants and her mother wouldn't come to school and pick her up. Karma.....3. Grab your favorite photo you have ever taken. Tell us why it's your favorite.
I took this picture in 2009 when the kids and I went to the Ogden Nature Park with my friend Monica and her family. We had a fabulous time that day and the kids saw deer for the first time. Monica was my first friend in Utah and she was a lifeline for me. I miss her.
4. What song instantly picks you up and makes your day go even better?
Funkytown by Lipps, Inc.
5. How did you and your husband meet? Tell us the love story!
We met on eHarmony, had a couple dates and then he stopped calling me. Turns out he was trying to decide between me and two women that he worked with. I told him we should just be friends. A few days later, fate brought us both to a mountain bar at the same time...except that he brought a date. He flirted with me and I told him to buzz off. A few days later we realized that fate had brought us together and we've been together ever since. You can read the whole story here.
6. What is your favorite snack?
Smoked Almonds!7. What was your first concert? Tell us what you remember about it!
My first concert was George Strait when I was 19 and I drove all the way to Cheyenne to see him. I remember that there were drunk cowboys in front of us and even though I'm rather tall it was hard to see over their cowboy hats.
8. What makes you the happiest?
