Questions from Kalya


What is your favorite childhood memory?

Oh my gosh…there are so many to choose from!  I think driving down to Florida, spending 24 hours with my parents and brother in the car playing games, singing, eating, and causing trouble on our way to visit my grandparents in Florida.  We used to go every winter break and then out east for spring break.



My bro and I in Florida!


Most embarrassing moment?

My first kiss…I’m not sharing any more : )

    • ha ha! I debated putting it in there but it really was THAT BAD. My Mom brought it up recently. I was like ‘how did you know?’. Apparently my best friend told her years ago : ) The entire summer camp knew…I guess I should have known my mom would too!

  1. Just got a good laugh reading about your most embarrassing moment! I know more than you would like to share 🙂

  2. Your first 2 random facts apply to me too. My scar is closer to the hairline and I KNOW that I don’t own any heels. That’s too funny!! Love this post!
