10. Describe your most embarrasing moment.

My MOST embarrassing moment only two or three people know and it is WAY to long to post about. Sorry maybe if you ask nicely I'll tell your in private.
I will share a blonde moment with you. 
I use to work at IHOP in Orem and one day a hispanic lady came in and asked if I knew where LaQuinta is? I said hold on I don't know, but I can ask. I went and asked my cooks and they looked at me funny and said they didn't know. I went back and said to her. I'm sorry I don't think we have a LaQuinta that works here....

Oh about 3 months later my family and I are driving to Denver and we pass a LaQuinta on the side of the road and I was like OHHHHH thats a LaQuinta!! So then I had to tell them the story and they've never let me live it down since.

Hope that made you smile! Oh and LaQuinta is a hotel by the way :)

9. List 8 people who have influenced you and describe how.

1. Peyton
This little girl makes me grow everyday. She is in time out one and giving me a kiss just because the other second. She is so energetic and lovable.  We are a lot alike in so many ways it scares me. She makes me want to be a better person so that she has that good example to look up to.

2. Mike
He is the person that knows me best. He knows everything about me. He calls me out when I need it. He taught me to trust and love and live. He makes me laugh everyday. He really is my best friend.

3. Frank
My Dad! I don't think he knows how much I look up to him. He is such a good person. He owns his own buisness and works VERY hard every single day. He has done so much for me and I don't know how I will ever make it up to him.

4. My Mom
She has gone through a lot in her life and expects nothing. She is always giving and thinking of others. I am my mom everyone says. She is strong and stands her ground. She is smart and beautiful.

5. A YW leader
She taught me when I was young…

8. What are 5 passions you have?

1. Sports
I love anything sports. I have my don't get me wrong I really like contact sports. I love playing them the most, but I do like watching them.

2. Disney
I am a huge Disney freak, but not a lot of people know that about me. It's kind of a closet nerd thing. It is one of my absolute favorite places to be with my family.

3. Family
Of course this is an obvious one. I am very protective of my family. They are everything to me as they should be.

4. Friends
I have known a lot of friends since Elementary school! I sure do love those kids!

5. Church
I a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! It is my life and I love it!

7. What is your dream job, and why?

Mike actually asked me this last week, because he is going to start pursuing his dream job.
We were driving in the car so I had a little bit of time to think. My first thought was something warm and doing something fun obviously. I thought Disney of course. I would love to work for Disney and I'm not smart enough to be an Imagineer. I wouldn't want to be a Cast Member. I did think being a Princess would be fun, but then it hit me. I would want to be a PLAID! Yes defiantly a plaid. A plaid is basically a Disneyland Tour Guide, but of course much cooler than the average CM (cast member, employee) they are expensive depending if you want the premium or regular VIP packages.

Another dream job of mine would be doing something in Hawaii, maybe I have to review snow-cone shops :)

I would also love to travel and eat. If I was a well renowned food critic who got paid to travel and review the worlds top restaurants.

So there you have it folks! A Plaid who travels and east food and gets …

6. What is the hardest thing you have ever experienced?

Physically? My car accident for sure. Some would say labor, but that was actually really easy for me (knock on wood) i'd take labor over going to the dentist any day of the week.  I remember the pain of laying on my cracked scapula and how bad that hurt, I cannot describe how much pain I was in. It was really hard everything about that was hard and that's all i'm going to say about that.

I really have been avoiding this post because of what it is, I really don't want to admit it out loud.
The death of my friend C.J. Morris. The last time I saw him it was a bad conversation and it was 2 weeks before. I do feel very guilty, I always say "What if" I know it was him who made the choice, but obviously I am not over what happend. I am not sure I'll ever be. I look forward to the day I see him again, I hope I get the chance. 
I often think about the good times and I will never forget two things about him. His million dollar smile and his bear hugs. Lets n…
