Get to know me?

So there's been this "assignment" circulating the group therapy I attend.  My therapist initially gave an assignment to one of the group members to write a paper that was all about her...what she liked and disliked, what her hobbies were, etc.  Just a basic "get to know me" paper.  Well, it sort of snowballed, and every week another girl or two would volunteer to write the paper and bring it the following week, until it was just me and one other girl that hadn't yet done it.  This past week the other girl volunteered, so I thought I was out of the woods, until my therapist said she thought it would be good for me to write it right now too, and asked that I'd bring it next time.

Sounds stupid, but I'm nervous about it.  I mean, I love writing, and it's not like writing something like that will be hard...but ever since I had a major scare on my blog, I've been super conscientious about what I post and what people know about me.  So, even writing something as simple as basic get to know Brie stuff feels foreign and weird...and slightly threatening.

But I'm going to do it, because I'll admit I'm also a bit excited to do it...because the other girls have mostly just written straight up, simple papers, chronicling their likes and dislikes and childhoods, etc, but I'm going to make mine funny as hell.  If I have to write this paper, then I want to write it with the intention to not only have them learn more about me, but to have them laughing their asses off too.  It lightens things up a bit, and trust me, I COULD USE THAT IN GROUP THERAPY.

So tonight I started brainstorming things I want to write...and of course I hit a wall.  So, now I'm asking all of you, dear readers, what are fun little tid-bits you'd like to know about me, or questions you'd want to ask me that would be in the spirit of getting to know me?  I'd love suggestions on what to write about, and don't worry - as soon as this paper is written, I'll even post it here too.  :)

Thanks in advance!

you have an incredible talent with self deprecating humor (; you'll do great. Just remember you are not your past, and you make your future.

Hmm... maybe most embarrassing moment, first day of Jr. High, starting your period for the first time. I also love the story of the pulsating balls when Cade was born (I think that's how you described it). Any of those things would be hilarious and make some people laugh.

I feel like I know a lot about you just from reading your blog. But there are a few things I'd like to know such as:
How did Brandon ask you to marry him?
Have you ever been to another country? If so where and why did you go?
How did you get into modeling? What life lessons did you learn from your model days?
How's your book coming along?
What's the happiest moment you have had with your twin?

We all have those songs that when it is a seriously crap day we turn up full blast and rock out to...what is yours?

You must include a brief passage from one of your stories about inpatient. Unless you're concerned people won't pay attention to the rest of your presentation because they are laughing too hard!

I really appreciate the depth with which you write and the difficult topics you cover. I don't want to sound like I only like your humor : - )
