If you were stranded on a deserted island, what is the one thing you couldn’t live without?

Helicopter?  Lol – but if that wasn’t an option I’d have to have daughter #1 – Hanna is my best friend and always helps me to see the glass half full.

You won the lottery! What’s your first purchase?
A nice big ski boat so the whole family could spend more time playing together

Where is your dream destination?
Someday I will go to Italy – my Grandmother always made me promise to go see the Vatican – and my husband is a Ferrari fanatic so Maranello is another must!

Your absolute favorite meal?
An old favorite of mine is pork chops, rice and gravy (which is really just cream of mushroom soup but my parents never told me that!)

What is one of your guilty pleasures? 
ICE CREAM!  YUM!!!! ANY FLAVOR, ANY TIME!!!

Tell us about your proudest moment.
Too many to count – I’m a proud Mom in a blended family of 6 kids – but I’d have to say my top one – SO FAR-  was watching my son Taylor (TJ Hilton) marching at graduation  & becoming a United States Marine……gives me chills!

What does success look like to you? 
That’s a hard one…I think the ultimate success is being able to look at myself in the mirror and know I’ve made a positive impact on others’ lives.

 

If you had a superpower, what would it be? 
Healing.  To be able to take away hurt, sadness and illness with just a touch.  That would be AMAZING!
