My friends would be surprised to know that I: I can’t seem to think of anything that my friends would be surprised to know about me.  However if it would be a surprise to them, it’s most likely something I would not want to be divulged. A girl has to have some mystery. :)

Person I’d like to have dinner with (living or dead): Charles Barkley!  I enjoy listening to his commentary during the games.  His little anecdotes always make me smile.  I was hoping to meet him at the last two All-Star games.  Unfortunately, this did not occur…

My favorite websites/blogs: I enjoy scrolling through Pinterest. It has everything!

The top item on my bucket list: I had always wanted to go skydiving.  I finally made this dream come true last year!  It was so exhilarating!! Now, I would just like to do a little more traveling during my summer breaks.

My celebrity crush: Clutch! The Rockets have the most adorable, mischievous mascot in the NBA!

If you looked at the “most played” songs on my iPod, you’d see a lot of: Incubus and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

My one guilty pleasure: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are my weakness; however, I try to refrain from eating them. If I do give in to this guilty pleasure, I try only to eat the minis.

My worst date: Last summer, I went on a date to see Sublime! The guy in front of us must have partied a little too hard. Before Sublime even took the stage, he got very sick. Needless to say, everyone in the immediate vicinity had to be moved to a new seat.

If I had to watch one movie or TV show over and over, it would be: Practical Magic. My mom and I watch this movie every time I come home to Missouri.  Even though we know the movie by heart now, we can’t seem to break the tradition.

My favorite tv shows would have to be The Big Bang Theory and White Collar.

My worst habit: I constantly twirl my hair with my fingers. I do this so often that I forget I’m even doing it.

The talent I’d most like to have: I would love to be able to draw. Currently, my stick figures leave a lot to be desired.

My favorite professional team: Houston Rockets, of course!

The most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me during a game: Every cheerleader’s worst fear is most likely a wardrobe malfunction while performing.  Luckily, I have not had this occur.

My favorite app: Does iTunes count as an app?

My favorite people to follow on Twitter: Actually, I don’t have Twitter.   However, I do have Facebook.  Since I moved from Missouri three years ago to Texas, I enjoy following my college friends.  Living in different states and busy lives make it difficult to keep in touch, so Facebook makes it a little easier to stay connected with them.

The coolest person that follows me on Twitter: Two questions regarding Twitter….  I guess this means I need to keep up with the times and consider getting Twitter.

I’d want my last meal to be: Pink’s Pizza in Houston, Tex. I don’t know how I even enjoyed a slice of pizza before I moved to Texas and found this place!
