What is your earliest memory?
Living in Kansas (mid 80s), I left these little stack-able colored bath tub cups outside during a huge thunderstorm. I remember I really worried about them.

What did you enjoy about school?
Keeping my mind sharp, and the friends!!  Junior high through college was such a blast.

Name 1 thing you miss about being a kid.
Not wanting to sleep, because now that's all I want to do.

Who was your enemy or the bully when you were young?
My sister, Jolie. She always ganged up on me with her friends and my brother James, and punched me.  When Dallin was born he was my ally.

What was your favorite musical group when you were in Junior High?
Verve Pipe, Foo Fighters, Dixie Chicks, Live... Britney Spear's "Hit Me Baby One More Time," Ricky Martin's "She's All I Ever Had," forth and on and on...

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Ballerina/dancer then teacher then architect then engineer. And now I just don't wanna grow up.

What was your favorite childhood injury? 
Maybe when my arch fell in my foot and so I had to get a cast in 3rd grade. I played kickball with my cast during recess.
^^The pink cast.  (I think this was a piano recital in the Layton Hills Mall or something.)

When was the first time that you had beer?
I have never tasted beer and I don't really plan to.  It does smell, however.

Worst roommate you have ever had.
Jolie cuz I've only had two...her and Ben!! Haha sorry Jo. (Kansas City)

What is your worst dating experience?
When I was a Sophomore in highschool, a certain senior took me to get Chinese food at the mall food court, but he just bought some for himself and said I could have some...

Which is the most funniest prank played on you or played by you?
In college some friends and I left a Ciran wrapped person on my mom's porch, calling for help. My mom didn't even look on the porch to see him, but just called 911. Lol. The police did not like that one. The neighbor cut him free before the cops actually came, but we still didn't get away fast enough.

What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
I still think it was going spelunking a week before tying the knot.. we all know how that one ended haha.  Either that, or flying to Vegas all alone to meet a super creepy Facebook stranger for a date.

Name one thing that not many people know about you.
I'm a tight wad and never spend money unless it's birthday/Christmas money I've been hoarding.  Then I usually spend it on shoes.  :P

Tell me a bout a funny family story.
My family and I were getting off the Disneyland tram and heard a bang like somebody stood up and hit their head on the tram ceiling. We were like, "oh that's crappy for whoever did that! Hahaha!"

Then later that same vacation, my dad closed the microwave fast and the door hit his own head. Hahaha!!
