What's your wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?

Right now my wallpaper on my phone is just the words "GAME ON." Most times, it's my dog, Karl.

When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?

Tito's on the rocks with two olives and two limes.

What's the one word you are guilty of using too often?

It's more like 2 words... "Hey Girl."

How to make the perfect holiday Christmas cookies... oops.


Who is the last person that called or texted you?

One of my best friends, Trent. He was trying not to meet me for our workout this morning and I was like, OH HELL NOOOOO!!!!

What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?

A good friend completely flaked on a plan that we had together so I addressed it head on. I told him that it hurt my feelings and we talked it through. I feel like it is better to address a situation early on, before it gets out of hand.

Broadway theater: The Elephant Man. I go to the theater all the time when I'm in NYC. Movie theater: The Imitation Game. LOVED IT!

During the summer it is Big Brother and Survivor. It is never NOT GOOD!!!
