I love my school, but I almost went to: Well I considered SMU, but I truly went all in for TCU. I have two older brothers who are there with me and my parents like to consider themselves Horned Frog's too. Actually, since my mom loves it so much, my dad likes to joke about her enrolling in the coming semester.

My best physical feature is: My smile I can be contagious you know!

If I had to watch one movie on loop forever, it would be: I love Wedding Crashers, but for a good romance I'd have to say Tristan and Isolde definitely! There is something about James Franco and Sophia Myles being in one movie together. Truly wonderful and a must see!

If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: Everything, but I do love my country music. I love Tim McGraw, who I might add may be the sexiest country singer alive, also Eli Young Band, and Keith Urban.

The shows I DVR/TiVo are:Gossip Girl, 90210, Glee and my new favorite Vampire Diaries

My favorite Web Sites are: Facebook, Nordstrom and People. But when I am feeling really bored I tend to check out Stumbleupon. It is a great way to help pass the time and in my opinion can be enlightening too!

My favorite people to follow on Twitter are: I am actually not much of a Tweeter. I did create an account, however, it still says the only people I am "following" are my two best friends...clearly I am really branching out.

My worst habit is: Playing with my hair, laughing too loudly or laughing at the wrong times...especially in those awkward "shouldn't laugh" moments.

My gameday superstitions are: Eating healthy before the game, and most importantly always stretching.

The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is: Being able to paint or sketch beautiful pictures. I am so envious of the people that can. It is such a wonderful gift to have!

These three things top my bucket list: I want to get married and have a family someday. I also would love to be an entertainment reporter on E! and I really, really, really want to vacation to the Fijian Islands and stay in one of those secluded huts above the water.

I'd want my last meal to be: An incredibly large one that I know only my dad could cook to perfection! An appetizer of calamari and garlic bread, a main course that includes a Filet Mignon cooked medium with a side of mashed potatoes, and seasoned squash and zucchini. Then last but not least a warm chocolate cake with a side of vanilla ice cream for my dessert! Nothing sounds more satisfying.

The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: Well there have been many little ones I am sure, but when we were performing our March-in routine at the Fiesta Bowl a camera man attempted to get a close up of my cowboy boots. Unfortunately, he accidentally got too close and caused me to just barely miss kicking him. I stumbled a little and completely missed a step in the routine, but mostly I just felt really bad for almost knocking him out. I think I may have even mouthed a quick sorry to him. I doubt he saw that though. Oh well, maybe that will teach him a little lesson about getting too close to a dancer in motion.

Three things I'd take to a desert island are: Hmm only three things...Anyone that knows me knows that this would be a great challenge, but I guess I'd have to say my face wash, my boyfriend, if I can, to help catch food, also a book such as "Living on a Desert Island for Dummies," to get some helpful hints, Oh and a little map on how to get home someday.

My favorite pro sports teams are: The Mavericks and the Dallas Cowboys

My one guilty pleasure is: Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies dipped in milk.

My celebrity crush is: Gerard Butler, the accent gets me every time!

Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are: Jesus Christ, my Papa, George Bush, Kristin Chenoweth and Kolona. My Papa died 10 years ago so getting to spend one more dinner with him would be more than amazing. I still have so many questions to ask him! And Kolona is a precious little orphan boy that I grew to love during the time I spent in Zambia, Africa on a mission trip.

My friends would be surprised to know that I: Almost tried out for TCU's rendition of A Chorus Line instead of trying out for Showgirls. I did theatre in high school for a few years and really missed singing and performing.

The next risk I want to take is: Sky diving in New Zealand. Unfortunately, I would have to conquer my fear of heights and free falling before that will ever happen.

The worst date I've ever been on was: I haven't been on many, but so far I have no complaints. I am pretty picky about who I go out with, maybe that's a fault of mine I don't know, I personally think all girls should be picky.
