What is the one thing no one knows about you?
I'm a sucker for all Hallmark Channel movies: Christmas, Spring Fling, Valentine's Day, you name it and I've undoubtedly watched it.
If you could have dinner with anyone living or dead, not a family member, who would it be?
James Corden. I feel like we would be instantaneous BFFs and the dinner would be nothing but belly laughs!
What is your favorite movie or book?
"Stand by Me." It's a great story about vulnerability and friendship. Plus, who doesn't love a good '80s movie.
