Contestant:

Who was your favorite celebrity as a child?
It's a tie between Alyssa Milano and Debbie Gibson, both of their posters graced my walls.

What is your favorite color?
orange

What word describes you best?
joyful

What is your greatest accomplishment?
my 4 children

What drives you every day?
Knowing that there is always something new and exciting just around the corner.

What is your favorite food?
Belgian waffles

Where do you like to vacation?
I love discovering (and photographing) new places, my favorite has been Puerto Rico or France.

Who do you admire?
Women whose first focus is their family.

If you were invisible, where would you go?
Watch how my children interact in their school classrooms. I would LOVE that!

What is the kindest thing anyone has done for you?
My friend Julie photographed the birth of my 4th child, a priceless treasure for me.

What would you do with a million dollars?
Take my family to Samoa for a grand vacation. Oh, and pay off my house and get a new mini van.

If you had three hours to yourself, what would you do with them?
Mindlessly surf the crafty blogs to add to my list of projects I'd like to do!

Star:

Who was your favorite celebrity as a child?
Honestly, I have never been much of a celebrity person. While I was in Jr. High I did have a hard time deciding if my bedroom door should have a poster of Luke Perry or New Kids on the Block, so I don't really have a favorite.

What is your favorite color?
White! I love white. I also really love red. So it depends on what it is, but it is usually one of those two colors or BOTH!

What word describes you best?
I think I would have to say casual. Try to figure that one out!

What is your greatest accomplishment?
I have three. Drew, Olivia, and Ruby.

What drives you every day?
Usually a deadline because I procrastinate!

What is your favorite food?
Today I am going to have to say shrimp.

Where do you like to vacation?
Until we moved to Texas we were huge Disneyland people. Twice a year, religiously! We also love spending time on the beach together. Now that we are farther away from California and it takes more time and money to get there, we are actually looking for a new favorite family vacation spot!

Who do you admire?
My husband! There are so many traits of his that I wish I had. I am hoping they will eventually rub off on me!

If you were invisible, where would you go?
The first thing I thought of was EVERYWHERE! I would just get on a plane and travel the world and not have to pay for any of it. But then I thought about it and that would technically be stealing, so I can't go that route. I would like to take a nap and not have my kids know I am sleeping, so being invisible might work for that, but so would running away from home.

What is the kindest thing anyone has done for you?
I think the little things done out of love are the most special and I am lucky to have a lot of wonderful, loving people in my life, so I am blessed with kindness everyday.

What would you do with a million dollars?
Invest it and use the interest every year to do something special. Nothing crazy (like blowing a million dollars at once). I would love to be able to take my entire family on vacations or pay for the groceries of the person behind me in the grocery store every week.

If you had three hours to yourself, what would you do with them?
Is it sad if I mention napping again! I try to keep my blogging to after the kids bedtime, but that means it often doesn't happen until my bedtime either!
