Just one but it’s piled high with extra mac-n-cheese for the kiddos.
Pandora or Spotify?
Spotify. Love those Discover Weekly mixes!
Kliff or Mike Leach?
Kliff’s cute and all but when “pirate” is a choice, you pick it. Plus, he was the mastermind of Air Raid.
Crunchy or smooth peanut butter?

Zero. Whataburger breakfast is my go to!

Who would you let punch you directly in the face?
My grandma because she wouldn’t.

Do you make your bed every morning?
No, there’s no time for that when your morning includes wrangling toddlers and naturally curly hair.

Probably Emily Blunt or Amy Adams. It would be a dramedy.

What’s your spirit animal?
A deer, according to an online survey.

Tell us something we don’t already know about you:
I’m the oldest and the only girl of four siblings so I’m used to being a #bosslady. I boss them around but only because I adore them dearly. We are all very close so I can get away with it.
