Contestant:

Who was your favorite celebrity as a child?
Definitely Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Who wasn't in love with the kid??

What is your favorite color?
Blue! Actually, Cerulean is my favorite, but people usually gloss over when I say that, so for them, Blue.

What word describes you best?
I think Optimistic is a good word to describe me.

What is your greatest accomplishment?
Aside from birthing children, I auditioned for and made EVMCO, a fantastic local choir.

What drives you every day?
My kids! Is it unfair to say they sometimes drive me insane? Really though, they make me happiest.

What is your favorite food?
love Chicken Scampi from Olive Garden, but I'd settle for good Mexican any day.

Where do you like to vacation?
I like relaxing vacations, usually to visit family and friends. But then again, that is really all I know!

Who do you admire?
I admire my mom and her mad sewing skills, along with her other noteworthy attributes!

If you were invisible, where would you go?
I'd probably stay in my bed- no one would make me get up if they can't see me :)

What is the kindest thing anyone has done for you?
In college, we were beyond strapped for cash, and some of my husband's co-workers pitched in to help us financially. They were college students too, so I know they sacrificed a lot!

What would you do with a million dollars?
I would love to fund scholarships for women. I am proud of my degree!!

If you had three hours to yourself, what would you do with them?
Sew, then eat half the tub of Nutella, and then go sew some more.

Star:

Who was your favorite celebrity as a child?
Do cartoon character's count? Because in my 8-year-old mind, Belle from Beauty and the Beast was perfection. I don't really remember being into actual celebrities as a kid, but I loved the tv show, Who's the Boss?, so naturally I thought Alyssa Milano was the coolest.

What is your favorite color?
I've always loved blue.

What word describes you best?
deliberate

What is your greatest accomplishment?
Becoming a mother.

What drives you every day?
The desire to be a good mother, and occasionally a healthy dose of guilt.

What is your favorite food?
Can I choose a beverage? Because I would definitely choose chocolate milk.

Where do you like to vacation?
Hmm ... I don't often "vacation" so much as visit out of town family. But I love Disneyland. And I wouldn't mind going back to Hawaii.

Who do you admire?
The great women in my life - my mom, my sister, and my mother-in-law. Also my best friend, Megan, who is brave, beautiful and and an inspiration.

If you were invisible, where would you go?
This might sound weird, but I think I'd feel awkward going out if I was invisible. It seems creepy that I could run around doing whatever I wanted and no one could see (but I could see you). So I'd probably crawl into bed and take a nap ... uninterrupted by children.

What is the kindest thing anyone has done for you?
My husband has taught be to be a more generous, open-minded person, and it has been the kindest gift of my life.

What would you do with a million dollars?
Buy a house! I'd finally be able to afford one where I live.

If you had three hours to yourself, what would you do with them?
That's easy - I'd get a milkshake (maybe two?) and sew like crazy.
