Who do you live with: My family - husband and two girls
Where would you like to live: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil would be great. I would gladly move back to Iquitos, Peru too; it's in the Peruvian Amazon.
Your favorite occupation: I'd love to be a chef. Well, not really because I don't want to work nights and weekends, but I love cooking.
Person you'd like to meet: The current President - whoever that is, I won't be picky.
What do you order in a coffee shop: Brewed coffee, dark roast. It's much cheaper than any of those fancy drinks.
3 TCL regulars who you'd like to have dinner with: Sunday Burquest, Carla Barnhill and Rob Barrett
Favorite State Fair food: All of them
Favorite TCL moment: Elizabeth asked me, "So, Carrie, how much would these products have cost and how much did you spend?" I hadn't committed the numbers to memory and I forgot to write them done (see a common thread with my memory here) so my only honest answer was, "I don't have any idea." Whoops.
One thing you can't live without: My Bible
Dream TCL interview/segment: I'd love to do a segment with Ty from Extreme Home Makeover. He is a really frugal guy and I'd love to work together with him to remodel, not demolish, but remodel a family's house on a budget.
What is your motto? I have two: 1) I think I coined this myself: "The last thing I quit was quitting." 2) I have a post-it note on my desk that reads "Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am."
