  4. Ninjas vs pirates, discuss… I loved the Ninja Turtles growing up (I had the backpack, the lunchbox, I wanted to be Raphael) and now that I call my hub the Ninja, well this is an obvious choice. Sidenote, did you all know that the Ninja Turtles are named after famous painters? All four of them!

  32. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go? I would go back to Australia in a heartbeat. And then on to Italy (again)
  33. List 5 goals on your life’s to-do list: Be a Proverbs 31 woman. Grow the ranch so that I can stay home and raise cattle, ride horses and take care of kiddos. Live a life that inspires others. Win a saddle. Retire in Kansas.

  46. Ever wish you were born the opposite sex? I’ve been a tomboy my whole life. But I’ve also got the whole “strong, opinionated woman” thing going on. I like the combination of those two.

    TMNT and Johnny Depp were surprises; #36 – no surprise; #11 – happens to me too, I don’t think it’s a bad thing; I think it’s a peace thing. That’s definitely good.
