My friends would be surprised to know that I: just recently began liking peanut butter. Never before had I tried it. Now, I love it! My next venture is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Some say I had a deprived childhood, I say a delectable adulthood!
The most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me during a game: When a great play is going on, I get so into it that my captain has called a dance and there I am just standing. It didn’t take me long before I realized and caught on, but I do wonder how many people just saw me stand there while the other girls were in motion for those few seconds.
If I had to watch one movie or TV show over and over, it would be: I could watch Friends all day, every day. If that had to be the TV show to watch over and over again, you wouldn’t find me complaining. I have watched every season and still get giddy over finding it playing on a late night network! The laughs just keep on coming.
My favorite people to follow on Twitter: Chelsea Lately, myself, and of course the MDCheer! Chelsea Lately, she is hilarious. Since I can hardly stay up at night to watch her shows, I frequently find myself laughing out loud to her tweets. I like to follow myself too, and I’m not talking about my personal twitter. The geek inside me has created a panoramic twitter, featuring all the panoramic pictures I like taking and it’s growing slowly! Who wouldn’t want to follow MDCheer? It’s all of what we do on and offseason!
My coolest follower on Twitter: It would have to be JoKoy and Laidback Luke! These two are not only verified but they almost always write back to me. It’s a silly feeling but knowing that a social network can connect people from different sides of the world is so cool!
My one guilty pleasure: Oreos. I love to eat healthy and can usually avoid sweets when I’m in diet mode, but if it’s one thing I can’t turn down is an Oreo cookie. Original, double-stuffed, vanilla, I love all kinds of the marvelous cookie!
My favorite professional team: I think we all know this answer! My favorite professional sports team is nothing other than the Miami Dolphins. I never had a father who enjoyed watching sports, but I did grow up in the city of Miami, where we do have the best fans! Growing up around a community that loves its team was so fun and made me grow up loving the Dolphins.
Three people I’d like to have dinner with (living or dead): I’d first like to have dinner with my mother. She is my everything: I pride myself in being the woman I am today because of her. Secondly, I’d have dinner with Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn represents classic beauty. Lastly, my favorite actor, Johnny Depp. I’d said several times that I would love to sit down at a meal with him to pick at his brain.
The top three items on my bucket list:
1) Travel to see the wonders of the world
2) Learn a third language
3) Get my cosmetology license
My favorite websites/blogs: Pinterest! I can find and fall in love with anything from DIY projects to places I have yet to travel. My favorite DIY projects thus far have been my homemade coasters and my distressed jean shorts!
My favorite app: Instagram! Whose isn’t? When I was younger I was really into photography. Instagram is my favorite because I get to post all the cool photos taken with my iPhone and add all those fun filters!
My celebrity crush: Michael Fassbender!
If you looked at the “most played” songs on my iPod, you’d see a lot of: The songs on my iPod come from an app called Indie Shuffle. Indie Shuffle plays a lot of diverse genres from electro pop, indie rock, R&B and everything in between. It is so hard to pick a favorite!
My worst habit: My worst habit would be playing with my hair. I twirl it and braid it, constantly.
The talent I’d most like to have: The talent I’d like to have is the talent to sing! I would say I’m good, but that would be within the confines of my car, with the windows up. I’d want my last meal to be: I would want my last meal to be sushi! I am a huge sushi lover. I have it at least once a week and can never seem to get enough.
