Who or what is your sidekick? My husband. He has been a fan of mine since before we even dated and has been a supporter, as best he can, in my endeavors. Although he is unable to attend most events or sets, he is there in spirit and always pushes me to achieve more than I thought I could, and he pushes me to be a better person.

What's your favorite charity? I have supported the VA for years, but I will also support many others in small ways or as they come up throughout the year. I think there are many great organizations, so I don't support just one.
Favorite place to spend your paycheck: Any thrift store I can find.
What local phenomenon do you think is overrated? The condos downtown should have never been priced so high. Now, many people are suffering from foreclosures on them.
Where do you like to take out-of-town guests? To eat barbecue. I don't have a favorite place - I just think eating it is important. I also like the Plaza area or the Legends.

What TV show do you make sure you watch? I watch the news mostly.
____ take(s) up a lot of space in my iTunes: Pasty Cline. Yep, I'm a fan of hers. Call me "Crazy," but I have a dream of being able to sing one of her songs. I also support many Christian artists. I love the heart of many of their songs.
What movie do you watch at least once a year? It's a Wonderful Life
What local tradition do you take part in every year? I try to attend The Nutcracker with my girls every year, as well as one candlelight service around Christmastime. Also, driving through some of the wonderful neighborhoods with Christmas lights all over. I'm in love with the Christmas spirit.
Celebrity you'd like to ride the Mamba with at Worlds of Fun: Robin Williams
Person or thing you find really irritating at this moment: OK, without sounding completely irrational, I get irritated at adults who don't keep their words with their kids, or anyone for that matter. If you're going to give a consequence, then be sure and follow through. I want kids to be able to trust what others say so they don't grow up getting used to not telling the truth themselves. There, I said it.
What subscription - print, digital, etc. - do you value most? I'm a die-hard Groupon fan. Must see the new deals every day.
