My best physical feature is: My eyes.
If I had to watch one movie on loop for ever, it would be: Wedding Crashers.
If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: Jason Mraz, Taylor Swift, John Mayer, Slightly Stoopid, Something Corporate and anything fun and upbeat I can workout and dance to.
My worst habit is: I have a weird obsession with brushing my teeth. I brush them at least four times a day or more.
My gameday superstitions are: Win or lose, I always make sure I have my camera so I can have something to remember each game.
I'd love to trade places for a day with: Coco Chanel.
The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is: The ability to sing.
These three things top my bucket list: Share a kiss at the top of the Eifel Tower, see the seven wonders of the world, and go hele-skiing somewhere really remote.
I'd want my last meal to be: Grilled salmon that my dad makes with a sweet potato and something chocolaty for desert!
The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: During pregame when the fireworks go off, all the cheerleaders tumble into the end zone. During this particular game, it happened to be raining and I slipped during a back handspring on the wet grass. Needless to say I fell on my face, luckily I don't think too many people saw because everyone was watching the fireworks.
Three things I'd take to a desert island are: My dog Taffy, a solar-powered blender to make fruit smoothies and tanning oil.
My favorite sport and professional sports teams are: My favorite sports to cheer at are football and basketball. I'm definitely more of a college sports fan, but I do like the Utah Jazz.

The next risk I want to take is: Moving to a big city like San Francisco or New York City once I graduate.
The reality show I'd do best on is: I would like to be on Deal or No Deal because I like taking risks.
The worst date I've ever been on was: I guess I'm pretty fortunate because all the dates I've been on have been pretty fun.
