Where are you from and how long have you lived in Southwest Missouri?
I am originally from Louisville, Kentucky area, but my husband and I met in Indianapolis, Indiana. He grew up in Chesterfield, Missouri and lived in Springfield while going to “SMSU.” He loved the area so much that we moved here the day after we got married in 1995.
Tell us about your family.
I have been married 20 years in August. We have twin daughters in the sixth grade. I have worked at Med-Pay for 19 years and my husband has taught at OTC for 13 years. We love the lake and being outdoors. I love to cook and my family loves to eat!
What was your reaction when you found out you won the fridge from Metro Appliances and More?
Our family left for spring break Friday, so it was the next day before I saw the email. I read it after everyone else went to bed. I was quietly squealing with excitement! I wanted to wake up everyone to tell them the awesome news! When everyone was up the next morning, I said, “girls, you remember the Southwest Missouri Moms booth at the KGBX Women’s show? Do you remember their drawing?” They looked at each other and said, “the fridge?” and I said, “we won it!” We started jumping up and down! My husband gave me a fist pump!
We built our house over 10 years ago. I have always wanted the newer style of fridge and I loved this on at first site.
What is the first thing you will purchase to go in your new fridge?
Fruits and vegetables are a big part of our diet. I will also make sure the outer door accesses real goodies for my kids.
What is your favorite feature of the new Samsung refrigerator? (click here to check it out for yourself)
The outer door is the best feature. Maintains cool temperature in the main part of the fridge. With kids, this will keep them from standing with the main door open while they look for a snack.
What is your quick and easy “go-to” dinner when cooking with your family?
We keep cut up veggies, cheese and salami ready to eat all the time. My family also likes edamame. The best, quick meal is a rotisserie chicken, rice and steamed veggies.
Was your family excited you were the big winner?
Most definitely! My husband said we will probably have to buy matching stainless appliances now.
Note from Kelli and Mindi: Congratulations Megan and thank you Metro Appliances! This was the perfect way to celebrate the launch of this site! Enjoy your fridge, Megan! And if you can talk your husband into buying matching stainless appliances, I know the friendly folks at Metro would love to help! =)
