What is your favorite type of motorcycle?
Well, It's got to be a Harley. Dyna Wide Glide. I LOVE the big "custom" look of the front tire

What was your favorite ride and why?
Day Ride - There's a beautiful LONG road up in the Uinta mountains here. The road is smooth, and very well taken care of. It's through the mountains so there's great curves. Just a wonderful ride.
As for a trip - The only weekend trip I've taken was from Western MT to Billings MT for the weekend when my parents watched my girls. So that would have to be my favorite long ride.

What do you like to wear while riding?
NOTHING!
HAHA
I ride in my club vest, my beloved bandana, riding boots, riding gloves, glasses, jeans. If it's cold I have a leather jacket and chaps. Most importantly, I wear my IPod. I get paniky if I don't have my music. Here's a pic of me riding.

How did you meet your DH?
We met through mutual friends.

How long have you been married?
We just had our 6 year anniversary on Saturday.

How did he (or you) propose?
I proposed to him. SORTA. Here's a story; We had a few drinks one night, and were in bed having a conversation. Yes, he was talking too. I don't remember what I asked, but he didn't answer me. He had fallen asleep that quick. So I punched him really hard in the side. He jumped out of bed screaming, "What the hell! What do you want?" So I replied, "Are we going to get married or what?" His reply was, "Fine! Whatever, just let me sleep." He laid back down. About a minute later her rolled over and asked, "Did we just get engaged?" I said, "I don't know." The next day he told his best friend that we were engaged, so then it was official.

The best part of it was that I was able to pick out my own ring.

What's your favorite part of your job?
Seeing the finished product. I'm reallly good!!!

What's your least favorite part?
After setting up and decorating 6-8 hours, the last thing I want to do is tear it down after the reception. I HATE that.

If you could go back and relive one day in your life, which day would it be and why?
HA! There would be so many things I would like to change, and mistakes I'd like to make right. But the truth is that those mistakes make me who I am today. So if I were to relive any day in my life, it would be one of the days I spent last April in Hawa'ii so that I could simply have another day!!

What's your favorite restaurant?
PF Changs!!!

What's your least favorite restaurant?
Famous Dave's

What is your all-time favorite movie?
Legend.
Not to be confused with Legends. This one is an 80's flick. One of Tom Cruise's first films.

What is your dream vacation?
I want to travel the Mediteranian. I would love to spend a couple of months seeing the small villages and learning more about the ancient greek culture, lives, and mythology.

What is the one thing you are insecure about?
That's deep.
I guess I'd have to say that I'm insecure about my worth
.

What is the one thing you are really confident about?
I'm just simply confident. I want a great body, but I love my curves. I'm outgoing, and sometimes to point of obnoxious. I'm good at most things that I do, and if I'm not I know that I'll look good doing it. Is that not obnoxious?

How old where you when you got drunk for the first time?
15, I was with my older brother. I pissed a few people off, and apparently they were the right people cause his friends always invited me back.

Which smiley is your favorite?
All the ones I can't use;
:bumshakin::boff::sex::getiton::fu2::fuoops::3some:

What's your ideal weekend activity?
Riding on Saturday. Doing nothing on Sunday with the exception of something with the kids. It doesn't matter if we're playing board games, or going to the park.

Do you follow any sports teams?
HELL NO!!!! My husband is so into sports, even if I did follow something it wouldn't be the right thing. I used to follow the Colts, and Earndhart Jr. Now Jr's sucking it up, and DH hates the Colts, so I've given up.

What and when was your first job?
Mc Donalds when I was 16. Infact I was NOT hired at first. Not sure if I said the wrong thing, but I knew the owner's son, so I was eventually hired, and I ended up being the closing shift every friday night for 3 years.

Do you have any siblings?
1 brother, 2 years older than me.

Describe the rooms in your house (type of decor, color scheme, etc.)---or, if it's not decorated the way you want, then describe how you would "like" it to be.

What is your favorite color?
Red

Describe the rooms in your house (type of decor, color scheme, etc.)---or, if it's not decorated the way you want, then describe how you would "like" it to be.
I don't really know what my style in my home is. Right now it's a work in progress. But my style is basically conteperary. I like the classic designs with a sleek modern twist.
I have lots of colors. Toupe base color, mustard yellow in the bathroom with black and silver accents. Kitchen is apple green. Master bedroom is rust orange up to a chair rail, then toupe above that. I like long curtains, but light material. I HATE BLINDS.

If you could paint a painting that portrays your personality, what would it look like?
Claude Monet, The Path among the Irises

From a distance, it all makes sense, and is absolutely magnificent. But if you looked up close or only at a select portion; it's messy, confusing, and splattered together.

What is your favorite meal?
I lOVE SNACKING!!!! I love food, but I'd eat cheesy popcorn above anything else.
It has to be air popped popcorn. Melt about 1 tbls margarine with about 2 slices of velveeta cheese. Mix it well, and pour it over the popcorn. Mix the popcorn up so that you get the cheese on much of it. Don't knock it till you try it.

Do you have any phobias?
I'm dealthy afraid of bears. To the point where we went to the zoo, and I started crying when I saw them.

Do you have any pets?
I've got a pomeranian/chihuahua cross - about 10 years old, her name is Lady Bug
I've got a full bread chihuahua - He's about 4, slightly retarded, and his name is Hemi
I've got a few guppies in a small tank that I enjoy.

If you had one week left to live what would you do?
I have many ideas, but I don't know what I'd do for sure. Probably first work my butt off to get the financials in order so my family wouldn't have to. Organize my funeral so that it'd be a party instead of a wake. Spend a butt load of time with my babies, husband, and parents.

What is your favorite animal?
Dolphin (because mermaids aren't real)

If they made a movie about your life, what genre would it be and who would play you
It'd definitely be a comedy!
I LOVE Sandra Bullock. So I'd like her to play me.

Would you rather have a really bad chest cold, or the stomach flu?
Flu. Definitely. Flu you feel like crap and you can rest. Nasty cold, you can't breath, you can't lay down cause of the congestion, you can't sit up cause of the sickness either, just misserable. At least with the flu, you can loose a few pounds right? Biggrin

What was your favorite subject in school?
Recess?
No, I hated school. Despised it. I was an A/B student, and I rarely did any homework.

When you were a kid, what was your dream job?
Cosmetology.
I LOVE doing hair and nails.

What's your favorite thing about where you live?
Nothing

What do you like least about where you live?
We'd leave this hell hole in a heartbeat if we could. I have a great group of people to ride with. But I have that at home. I love open space of the country, and I live in the city. I love the mountains. Here has great mountains to the east, but a big stinking pile of crap called The Great Salt Lake that isn't worth the brine that lives in it (that's the only thing that lives in it, it's too salty). I'm innendated (sp?) at least once a week by unwanted religious views that I don't agree with. It's getting better as I get to know more poeple, but it's still too much. I'm a college graduated that can't find a job because I don't have the right last name, or over qualified, or don't know someone's sister. We would have left when my husband got laid off, but we can't sell this house without taking a loss, and we can't afford a loss.
I hate this place.

What's your favorite candy?
Ooh, that's a toss up. If I'm going for a chocolate type of candy, It's Reece's Pieces. I just found this, I want this NOW!

If it's more fruity, It'd have to be Twizzlers.

Who got you into riding?
That's another story. It all starts back when my dad, an insurance agent, basically forbade me to ever get on a bike. Of course, I ALWAYS do as I'm told, and jumped on the first crotch rocket riding guy's bike. But my dad surprised me with buying his first Harley when I was in college. My DH bought a Harley Sportster on a whim while we were visiting friends out of town. So I started riding behind him then. We started riding with my Club shortly after that and my dad made me take the beginner's riding class. Then I decided to get my own. There you have it.

What makes you smile?
Love. When my girls give me love, when/if my DH does something loving. When my friends come together for a good time.

If you could travel through time, when and where would you go?
I would love to travel back to the time when the Indians roamed the plains. Biggrin
Before the cowboys came. Could you imagine living and working for yourself and your family? Taxes were paid by working together, and supporting eachother. And it's all within family. You don't have to pay for someone you didn't know or care about.

I LOVE Autumn. I love sweatshirt weather. I hate being hot, and I get sick of the snow after a short while (even though it's quite beautiful).

What's your favorite scent?
Vanillia

Do you like candles?
I do!!! But now they have such wonderful non-candle scent things (like scentsy), and neat fake candles. You don't have to worry about the smoke, danger, and mess.

Do you do the whole Santa Claus thing at Christmas with your kids? Why or why not?
Yes, but not to a huge extent. Due to budget, and MY tradition growing up we don't do a HUGE Santa routine. We do one large gift from us (mom and dad), and Santa brings stalkings, and some small fun things.

Do you do a Christmas tree, and decorate the house?
Right now we have a small 4 foot tree that I put up on my end table right in front of the window. It looks from the outside a nice tall tree, but it's not. While growing up my grandparents gave me (and my brother) an ornament each year for christmas. So when I moved out I'd have ornaments to decorate my tree. So that's what I use. One of these years I'll buy a large tree and buy some nice decorations and this small one will become the kid's tree.

And, Yes, I decorate the house. I have a nativity scene my mother made. I have some cute stuffed animals and floor decor. It's not a lot, but it's about 2 large totes worth.

Do you bake cookies/goodies with your kids at Christmas?
Yes, (this has a story too)

While growing up my other grandma would send us Christmas cookies. This grandma was a snowbird, so she (and grandpa) would spend the entire summer with us and then travel to Arizona for the winter, so we never spent Christmas with them. We'd get a huge box every year with her home made cookies. They were No-Bake, Cressants, and Peanut Butter Blossoms. Usually another kind too, but that was always there.

Well, a few years ago my grandma was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. She can't cook any more, so for the past few years I've made the cookies, sent them to my brother, my BIL's family, My parent's, and my Grandma. Of course we keep some at our house. So it's become a bit of a tradition.

Lisa, I loved reading about you! I'm sorry that I was gone most of last week and didn't get to ask more questions, but I loved reading what everyone else asked and your answers.
