Getting to Know Sunni


Were you named after anyone?
I wasn’t really named after anyone. I was supposed to be born the first day of Spring, so my name was going to be Spring. I was born two days early so they decided to name me Sunni.

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? My favorite ice cream flavor has always been Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. Whoever decided to mix cookie dough and ice cream together is a genius.

What shoes from your collection do you wear the most? 
I definitely wear my tennis shoes the most. Even though I work a fulltime job and dress business casual for every day, somehow it’s still my tennis shoes that get the most wear.

What is your favorite fast-food chain?
I LOVE Chick-fil-A. It is so yummy, but it’s also one of the healthiest fast-food chains in the U.S.

Do you have any hidden talents? 
I don’t really have any “hidden” talents … unless you count rhinestoning as a talent. I will put a rhinestone on anything and everything!

What is the last thing that made you laugh? 
The last thing that made me laugh was my roommate and dear friend on the team, Jackie Bob. She did the splits in the middle of one of the aisles at Walmart while we were grocery shopping!

What is the last thing that made you cry?
The last thing that made me cry was when I went wedding dress shopping with my Mom and sister and found my dress. I’ve always heard you would “just know” and that I would have a moment when I put on THE dress. I never believed that until now.

Red or pink? 
Definitely pink.

Do you collect anything? 
I have collected music boxes since I was a little girl. I have an entire case full of them. I also collect giraffes. My Mom started this for me many years ago encouraging me to always “stick my neck out” in life.

Apple juice or orange juice? 
I don’t drink a lot of juice, but if I had to choose then I’d choose orange juice.

Sweet tea or soda? 
I love both sweet tea and soda! That is a tough choice. If I could only have one, then I’d choose sweet tea.

Have you ever been addicted to any video game, computer game or phone game?
I am addicted to Words With Friends and Hanging With Friends on my iPhone. It is so fun to play against my teammates and my family.

Do you have any pets? 
I have a 13 year old Shih-tzu named Princess. She has lived with me through three states, 14 apartments/houses and tons of heartbreaks and victories.

What kind of sandwich did you take to school as a child? 
I typically ate at the cafeteria when I was in school, but if I would have been able to choose a sandwich then it would have totally been a PB&J. Yum!

Who is your all time favorite band? 
I’ve always really loved Journey.

Have you ever been out of the country? If so, where?
I haven’t actually been out of the country much. I’ve been blessed to have been on two calendar shoots now with the DCC to Riviera Nayarit. Before that, I had been to Cabos San Lucas and I also visited military bases in Germany one Christmas. This coming Christmas, I am honored and humbled to be going on the USO tour to Korea and Okinawa.

Would you rather watch a scary movie or an action movie? 
I am not a scary movie fan at all. I don’t like sad movies either. If it’s going to make me cry or make me scream then I usually just opt out of watching it. I love action over scary, but I love comedy over action.

Comedy or romantic movie? 
Although I love romantic movies, I’d still rather watch a comedy. I love to laugh!

Do you have any bad habits? 
Sometimes I think I can be just a little too sentimental. I mean, I probably have every single magazine, photo, article, mention or item that is related to DCC that I have ever come across. I have a big chest that I put all of the memorabilia in. Sometimes I think I may take it to the extreme, but I just don’t ever want to forget all of the amazing opportunities and experiences I have been blessed with. And just maybe someday my children might want to rummage through those memories.

Are you clean or messy? 
I am actually a neat freak. With my schedule being as hectic as it is, sometimes my house can get a little disheveled and it bothers me so much. I usually spend any free time I have trying to put things back in order.

What was your high school’s mascot? 
My high school mascot was the Henrietta Hornet. I actually was the mascot my freshman year of high school. How funny!

What was your childhood dream job? 
When I was growing up, I used to tell people I wanted to be a counselor (my mom was a high school counselor) and a ballerina. Someday I still think I’ll end up going back to school to pursue a masters and PhD in psychology.

Are you a morning or night person? 
I am, without a doubt, a night person. I can feel groggy and tired all day and then as soon as I get home from work and practice, it’s like I get a second wind.

If you HAD to change your name, what would it be? 
Oh gosh! I love my name! But if I had to change it, I would change it to Sunny instead of Sunni. I sometimes wish my parents had spelled it that way.

What was your favorite TV show as a child?
I used to really love The Cosby Show.

What is your favorite TV show now? 
My favorite TV show is The Bachelor. I haven’t missed a single season.

What are three things that most people don’t know about you?
1. I used to be a big WWF wrestling fan.
2. I am a published poet. 
3. Before DCC, I was a public speaker.
