7. Favorite gift received as a child? My dollhouse. My parents made it. It was never finished. But my dad put some of the wallpaper from mine and my sister's rooms into the rooms of the dollhouse. It was awesome.

8. Hardest person to buy for? My aunt Brenda. She has EVERYTHING!! The best gift I gave her was the Tickle Me Elmo TMX. (You know, the one that rolls around on the floor and laughs hysterically!) She wanted it the year that they were selling out within MINUTES. had 4000 per day for one week. They went on sale at 10am every day. The first day they were on there, I pulled it up online at 9:50am. It said "Not Available". I kept refreshing the page until it said "Add to Cart" I rushed through the purchasing process. By 10:01am they were SOLD OUT! 4000!!! But I got one!!! The reaction on my aunt's face was PRICELESS!!! Now I just need to figure something out for THIS year! Oy.

9. Easiest person to buy for? My fiance. He tells me exactly what he wants! Hehehe. Over and over and over.
