This week I'm so excited to have my bff from Oklahoma, Tiffany! She and her husband moved into the same apartment complex as us right when I needed a friend; I'm so grateful she introduced herself to me when we were both paying rent (she recognized me from church since I had given a talk that week). We always joke how me and Rob and her and her husband Chris are clones of each other... we may look different, but Tiff and I have all the same interests and Rob and Chris do too. So we get along great. Sadly, they are now stationed at Ft. Lewis while we are here at Ft. Bliss but we're SO EXCITED to head up there this fall for a visit before Chris deploys (thank you Southwest airlines). Tiffany went to BYU, majoring in Social Work, and met her husband Chris on a blind date... he flew her to New York where he was attending West Point so she could go to a formal with him. Now they are married and are Max and Nick's 'other parents.'
name: Tiffany Goodwin
website: In the works...and hopefully up soon.
1.What do you “do”?
Presently, I am a stay at home wife. What do I do in a day....I sew, knit (thanks to Jackie), go to the library, clean, do laundry, read, cook, look after my parents, manage my dad’s office, run errands, exercise and sometimes, I just do nothing.
2. Why do you do what you do?
I have not been able to find a social work job, and now that summer is here, we have too many things planned, so jobs are on hold. Besides, it is nice being home and available for anything....I keep quite busy.
3.Where are you from?
Born in southern California, but raised in western Washington.
4. Favorite color?
5. Favorite food?
Cliche I know, but I love pizza.
6. Favorite shoes?
7. Favorite place in the whole wide world?
Lake Chelan, Washington.
8. Favorite piece of playground equipment?
9. Your funniest story?
Why is it that when asked this question my mind goes totally blank?! However I do have a funny story about a girl named “La-a.” Let’s just say she is from the south, her mother is uneducated and this poor girl’s name is pronounced “La dash a.”
10. Mac or PC?
Mac. I was a PC until I met my husband three years ago and now I am a total Mac-ie.
11. Manual or automatic?
I drive an automatic, but I have always wished I drove a manual. Since I learned to drive I pretend every car is a manual....I hold the gear shaft as if I need to shift. Sad, I know.
12. What do you consider your best asset?
I can get along with just about anyone.
13. Guiltiest pleasure?
The Bachelorette....or reality TV in general.
14. Biggest pet peeve?
Oh so many....gum smacking is highly ranked, not washing hands after using the bathroom, nail biting. I have issues.
15. What do you consider priceless?
16. If you could sit next to anyone on an airplane, who would it be?
Someone who either puts headphones in right away or falls right to sleep....I don’t like talking to people on airplanes. I guess sitting next to Thomas S. Monson would be cool.
17. What would you choose as your last meal?
A buffett of all my favorite things. Red Robin french fries, mint chocolate chip ice cream, Sonic corn dogs, sprinkle doughnuts, cheesecake, BBQ chips, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Goldfish Crackers, Cheese-Its and pepperoni pizza.
18. What era in time do you connect with the most?
19. Your motto for life?
“Replace every fearful thought with an act of faith.” -Harold C. Brown
20. Best advice you can give?
Sometimes when people need to talk they don’t want you to fix their problems or even offer advice, they just need someone to listen and validate.
(I need to take my own advice....ugh.)
I hope you love her as much as I do!
