Are you more like your father or mother? I have my father's talkative ways and my mother's sense of humor, cooking skills, and love of grocery stores.
What was the name of your childhood pet? An alley cat named Thomasina! She fought the neighborhood dogs and won!
Which two people do you admire most? I admire so many people. My mother for raising five children who are successful and happy and my father-- he was deployed to Vietnam twice, Korea once, and Germany twice.
How did you meet your husband? We were on a semi-blind date, introduced by a mutual friend in Cape Girardeau. I thought he was 21 when we first met but we were both 30 years-old at the time.
Favorite St. Louis hang-out: There are too many to name one..... my own kitchen, the Central West End, St. Louis Zoo, any St. Louis Bread Company, my church and my brother's house when my sister-in-law makes her famous cake (yellow with milk chocolate icing)
