What would you rather be doing right now? Sitting on the beach with a drink in my hand.

Shhhhhh! Don't tell anyone that ... I love to read.

Other than the birth of your children, what was your proudest moment? My son graduating from military and my daughter giving birth to my granddaughter and grandson.

It really stinks when ... people don't clean their car windows off in the winter.

What word in the dictionary would your face be next to? Sarcastic.

I always laugh when ... my granddaughter calls me MeMaw Sherry.

Invite any three people, living or dead, to dinner. Who are they? My mom and my sister Vicky, because they are both in heaven and I miss them both very much, and my dad, because I would want to share seeing them with him.

At the end of a really long day at work, I like to ... take a hot bath.

People who knew me in high school thought I was ... sarcastic.

I would drop all my plans tonight if I had the chance to ... see Keith Urban.

If someone gave me a million dollars, there is still no way I would ... leave my family.

America should be more concerned about ... people going hungry in America.

I'm OK if there's ever a national shortage of ... snowmen.

When I'm on the Internet, I always go to ... Facebook to see what my family and friends are doing.

What is the most useful piece of advice you have ever received? Everything happens for a reason. My mom told me this.

When I'm cruising down the road, I'm likely listening to ... country.

I always get sentimental when ... I hear the national anthem.

The older I get, the more I realize ... life goes faster the older you get.

If I had one "do-over," I would ... have continued with college and got my RN.

If I've learned anything at all ... it's that life is too short to stay mad over something stupid.
