The Fun Stuff

Random thing about you? I have a 5-month-old daughter.

Funny family memory? A few years ago my family and I went to the mountains for a family vacation. While there, we decided to ride horses up the mountain. My horse decided to try to eat off the side of a cliff and when I kicked him, he tried to bite my foot!!

Perfect Saturday? Sitting home watching Looney Tunes all day with my daughter.
