Favorite thing about being married? Everything! That safe feeling knowing my husband wants to always be by my side. Someone to have there to go through everything with, the good & the bad!

Best wedding gift received? A new vacuum cleaner! Our old one sucked!

Ever have any surgery? If so, what? No! I have had stitches & times in the ER but no surgery! My husband on the other hand has had a few! He had metal plates/screws put in his face & ankle, had his hip relocated & his nose fixed after I think breaking it. (Car wreck, all of this happened together in 2007.)

If you won the lottery, what would you do first? Donate to American Diabetes Ass. Some local Animal shelters, ect. Then buy a home with lots of land, our parents homes close to us & new vehicles!

Have you ever done anything illegal? When I was younger. Yes. :/ When I was barely 15 I snuck out of my window & took my mom’s car out of state.. Made it home by 7 AM the next day & the only way she caught me was because I filled the tank up when it was empty. I would NEVER do anything like that EVER again & I have no idea what made me do it. I went & picked up a friend & we went and visited some friends in West Virginia (I lived in KY.) :O

Do you talk in your sleep? Rarely, but when I do I wake myself up.
