October 1st, 2019

Name: Michelle Holland

Occupation: Lunar Rendezvous Festival chairman; homemaker and volunteer

Hometown: I was born in Houston and grew up in Arlington

Family: Doug, my high school sweetheart and husband of 22 years and our 2 daughters, Braeden, who is a senior at Clear Falls High and Addison, a 7th grader at Bayside Intermediate.

My favorite writer is: I am not a huge reader and really prefer listening to books on Audible. I recently listened to The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides and loved it. The ending was the best!

Someone I’d like to meet: Oprah…she has accomplished so much and has given back even more.
If I could switch places with someone for one day, I’d choose: The President. I would love to see what it was like but just for 24 hours.

I like to spend my leisure time: I just started playing tennis and love getting to spend time on the court. I also enjoy going on to dinner with friends and hanging out with family.

My favorite performers are: I don’t really have a favorite but I do like Justin Timberlake. I think he is an amazing overall entertainer.

If I could travel any place I’d go to: The South Pacific and stay in a bungalow over the crystal blue water.

The thing that bugs me the most is: People that are wishy-washy and indecisive.
You will never catch me: Beekeeping! I have a huge phobia of flying insects that sting!

As a kid I wanted to grow up to be: As long as I can remember I have wanted to be in sales. I have had a long career in outside sales and have loved it.

My favorite movie is: Pretty Woman, it is so romantic and sweet.

My favorite meal is: Homemade macaroni and cheese, Stouffers Spinach Soufflé and Chocolate Cake.

Few people know: My favorite Christmas present I ever received was a Charlie Brown tabletop Christmas tree. I hate decorating for Christmas and hire someone to decorate our tree. Once the kids are grown Doug and I will just have our perfect Charlie Brown tree!
