Shayna Smith - Get to Know Her, You'll Be Glad You Did

Shayna Brooke Smith, Age 17

"We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken." - Fydor Dostoevsky

Shayna is my younger, not shorter sister. (Shayna taught me I'm not short, I'm fun sized. See, don't you just love her already?)

Investigative Report on the Life of Shayna, "Shay" Smith:
How will you change the world?

Maybe I'll teach the person who finds the cure for cancer in grade school or something

What's your favorite style (of clothes)?

Just your basic jeans and a T-Shirt... but I really like dresses too!

Give me a random movie quote (If you know Shayna, you know she is full of these)

"Why do the Yankees always win the world series?"
"Cause they have Mickey Mantle."
"No, cause the other team's too busy looking at their pin stripes."
"It's because they have Mickey Mantle!"

(If you know that movie, name it! Movie Quote Monday game in the comments.)

Favorite smell:

You know that leathery smell on softball mitts? I like that, but I don't know my absolute favorite

Favorite thing to see:

Cute little kids and babies: They make me so happy!

A food that makes you jump for joy:

Really good sushi

Your favorite shirt is:

Shirts are shirts. I don't know if I have a favorite

The movie you could watch once a week for the rest of your life and never get sick of:

I have several! The Emperor's New Groove...Ratatouille...Princess Bride

Favorite Temple to look at:

The Idaho Falls Temple

Where do you most what to go, right now, on a vacation?

Cairo, Egypt

If you had money to spend on whatever you wanted, what would you buy first?

A Mini Cooper, then clothes, and a new phone

That's before you go to Egypt, right?


Not only is Shayna really good at being a sister, she's the most down to earth person I've ever met.

In our family, since there are four of us girls, my mom likes to tell us we match up with the ladies from Little Women. Shayna is Beth:

(But she's not going to die of a tragic illness.)

My attempt at a collage that is Shayna:


  1. Oh, what a fun post! I love Shayna, too!! :) I know that I watch that movie often (the movie with the quote about the pinstripes) but I'm trying to remember which one it is... okay, I asked Russ - it's Catch Me If You Can. He is a PRO at Movie Quote games. Seriously. Like, the BEST EVER. He and his older sister will play that game for HOURS. No... DAYS. oi.

  2. Ding ding ding! We have a winner. Yep, it's Catch Me If You Can. That's awesome, Shayna should probably get together with Russ and his sister to play. She rocks. I don't know how she remembers them all:)

  3. haha! Oh shay I love her but alas, where am I?

  4. I resent this post because there is not one for me.

  5. Yours will happen soon, I promise! I promised I'd interview Shelb first, and Grandma's is next, I'm interviewing her on Saturday. But then I'll interview you. I want interviews with all my sisters.
