    7: What is your fav food?
    Fajitas

    No sure.... I don't want to be crayon.

    14: Do you have a nickname?
    Does Bitch count, because that is what I get called in the subway when I accidently run into someone when it is crowded.

    15: What causes do you support?
    Here I go on my Soap box. I work for LV and we have a very strong Anti-Counterfieting team in my company, which most design companies don't. The reason we do is because all of those fake knock-offs that are bought on the street are brought in from China. China where they have huge factories filled with young girls from the ages of 6-14 years of age. It is not secret what role women play in the Chinese community. It is the saddest thing you will ever see. These girls are piled in rooms to make bags by hand, many of which lose their fingers and hands after time. Once they can't make bags they are turned to the street for prostitution. I have seen the results of this first hand.

    So please DO NOT BUY THINGS ON THE STREETS. IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD THE REAL THING, PLEASE DO NOT BUY THE FAKE ONES BECAUSE SOME CHILD MADE IT WITH HER BARE HANDS AND GOT PAID 10 CENTS TO DO SO BUT LOST HER CHILDHOOD AND SO MUCH MORE.... THINK BEFORE YOU BUY. WHY WOULD THEY DO KNOCK-OFF'S AND IMPORT THEM ILLEGALLY INTO THE STATES.... HUMMM.......

    19. If you won the lottery (hundreds of millions) what would you do?
    Take care of my entire family and all my friends, so they wouldn't have finance stress. Continue working because I love it, but also ensure I could take many many vacations. I would also volunteer a lot more.

    20. What gadget do you not need, but still want?
    Microwave

    21. What is your favorite T.V. show?
    Don't have cable, because being in front of the TV makes me lazy

    22. When did you know that FI was "the One?"
    One night we were in a bar with his friend and I went to go get drinks, on my way back I saw him talking about me and something on his face. I just knew it.

    I am still a child so not sure. FI is on same page. Yeah!!! WE will discuss this in 2012.

    25. Have you ever met anyone famous? If so, who?
    My list would be too long. I use to work in PR for Sony and lived in Orlando during the Boy Band Craze, Now I live in NYC. I do a lot of events here so I meet people weekly.
    I would have to say my two favorites though are Abigal (Little Ms Sunshine) she use to be a client of mine and she is so grounded. Her mom is awesome too.
    Last night I rode the subway beside her brother in that movie, he was also in There Will Be Blood.
    Oh Julie Roberts once said my name.
    Oh don't tell anyone I onced kissed Lance Bass.... Yes even back then I knew he was gay. It was a joke between friends.

    26. If you could be someone else for a day who would it be and why?
    I would want to be 5'7" for a day. I am only 5'1" I would like to see the world from up there.

    27. What is your worst bad habit?
    I have too many:
    Drinking on a work night, too much
    Taking cabs, when I could take the subway

    28. What's your middle name? Does it have significance?
    Jean... No my next closest sister and I have the same one.

    29. What's the craziest thing you've ever done?
    aGain this would be a very long list.
    Okay bungee jumped off a bridge in Cody, Wyoming and got arrested for it.

    30. What is the one thing that your significant does that drives you CRAZY?
    Makes me talk to his parents on his shitty cell phone and I can't hear half of what they are saying

    31. What’s your favorite movie?
    I have too many. I love movies.

    32. Why did you choose a destination wedding?
    HOnestly. I don't think church weddings and hall receptions are personal enough. I wanted a location that made my friends think of me and my FI all the way around. I also wanted it to be something I would never forget. I also love to vacation, so why wouldn't I turn my wedding into a vacation with all my loved ones.

    Also my FI and I are paying for it ourselves and we wanted to go all out and weren't able to do that on our budget anywhere but Puerto Vallarta.


    33. How long were FI and you together when you got engaged?
    1 year 1 1/2 months. He started having my ring made after we had been together for 1 year. I wouldn't have thought this to be for me. I thought I would have wanted to know someone for a long time, but our relationship is so easy. He stared asking me after 5 months if I would marry him and I knew I didn't want to let him go.

    34. What person in your life really gets under your skin, and how do you know them?
    Mean people who are arrogant. I encounter a lot of them in my industry and I wish they would jsut get over themselves. The world is too big yet too small to be so self involved.

    35. When and how did you and your FI meet?
    I picked him up while I was at work at Lucky Brand Jeans. He came into buy jeans and walked out with a fiance. Well kind of.... You get what I mean. I loved his teeth and lips. I wanted to kiss him, but not appropriate at work when I just met him. So I ensured I would get to see him again. Still loving the teeth and lips today.

    My question: Do you have any pets?
    My answer: We have fish because we don't have time for anything else...we will be getting a puppy next summer as a wedding gift to ourselves though...can't wait!

    No I don't think NY is dog friendly. That is the pet I would want. I feel sad to see dogs locked up in apartments all day with no where to run and play.

    My Question: What is the nicest thing you have done for someone most recently?

    Yesterday I was going up the subway stairs and there was a lady carrying a suit case up that was very heavy. I asked her if she needed help, and as we all know NY'rs don't need help with anything, She said "NO". She continued to have a hard time and people were bumping into her because it was rush hour. So I got behind her a lifted the bottom to take off some of the weight. She was surprised and looked at me shocked. She got up the stairs with ease and when we got to the top she didn't look back she just walked away. Oh well I know I made it a little better for her and that is all that counts.

I also hate being the center of attention and didn't want a bunch of people I barely talk to or even remember at my wedding. I wanted it small and away from home. Plus, it was cheaper than having something at home and we paid for it on our own.

              Even more so now that the wedding is over and it was awesome.

              37. Do you have any pets?
              No, but I really want to get a dog once we move.

              38. If you could hook up with a celbrity for one night, who would it be?
              Hmmm, that is a tough one. I really like Vince Vaughn so I think it may be him.

              My question: What's your sexual fantasty and have you ever played it out?
              We've played out a lot of fantasies so I'm not sure I could pick just one.
