1. Are you a different person than you were five years ago? submitted by Sisterly Thoughts

I went from college student to graduate; from dating to Army Wife; from East Coast to Mid-West; from intern to employee; from fish mom to puppy mom. Very different, I’d say.

2. If you could go on Amazing Race, who would you take with you as your partner and why? submitted by Thoughts from a Poekitten
I would definitely take Andy. We’ve watched the show together and we usually agree on what roadblocks to do. He is very logical about the tasks, plus he’s super strong so if it was physical or scary I know he’d do it for us. He is also good with direction and a good motivator. So pretty much all around a great teammate. GREAT JOB, BABY! They would call us Andy & Allie, Soldier and Wife … or the Goths. (jk)

If Andy was deployed and couldn’t go, I think I’d want to go with my dad. I’d want to see if we’d be like Gary & Mallory– very handsome and a lot nutty, but surprisingly efficient or like Ron & Christina– totally bizarre, hungry, disfunctional and inefficient. I think we’d be the former. C’MON, DAD!

3. Does Facebook or Twitter actually bring more stress or good in to your life? submitted by Just an Arizona Girl
Good. It’s my life. It’s my work. Blah blah blah.

4. June is National Soul Food Month- what’s your soul food? submitted by NH Girl Displaced
My soul food is candy. And iTop It. And Four Cheese Baked Gnocchi (from the best cookbook I’ve ever used).

5. If you could live in any other era than the current, which one would it be & why? submitted by Sugar in My Grits
Hmm. It’s a tawss up betweeeeennnnnnn WW2 and the 1700s. 🙂


  1. I’m relieved that I would not be on Amazing Race with you. I think you and Andy would win and you and dad would be hilarious – and also, have a pretty good chance of winning.
