Best Place I've Traveled To: London and Paris during study-abroad in college. Spent weekends exploring and staying in hostels for the true broke-college-kid experience, but we found the BEST off-the-tourist-path places that we still talk about today.

Favorite Weekend Activity: Tailgating at Oklahoma State University football games, taking my rescue mutt to the dog park, playing golf (poorly) with family and friends, hosting backyard cookouts and cooking for friends. I also love a spontaneous road trip.
