About Me

I tend to swap more in the winter months - being from Minnesota, we get really busy in the summer months by enjoying the outdoors. I'm 39. I love to laugh and have a good time.

Swapping with Me

Swapping with Me: I send out my items on time, but if something doesn't make it to you, please let me know before rating. I want to make sure that you get the items! I like happy partners.

Also, I mark my items as sent as soon as they are ready to go. If the mail hasn't come that day, I will pop it in the mail the same day. If it's at night, I will drop it in the mail the next morning.

I haven't had this experience yet, but if my mailing arrives with postage needed: first, I apologize! second, I'd like to make it up to you, so please let me know and I'll make it right!

If you're going to be late, I'm pretty understanding, so let me know. Communicate with me and we'll work something out.

Favorite Movies

romance, action, comedy, documentaries.

One reason I love documentaries is there are often many, many podcasts that also discuss the topic. Some favorite movies/Docs: Making a Murderer (also Rebutting a Murderer (podcast) offers a different opinion). The Staircase. The Keepers. Betting on Zero (on Netflix, watch after listening to The Dream). Evil Genius.

Favorite Television

This is Us. Floribama Shore. 90 Day Fiance universe. Jersey Shore. Shear Genius. Project Runway. UFC. Downton Abbey. Big Brother. Sports - I watch a lot of sports! My favorite is football (Go Vikings) and hockey (Go Wild!). I like to watch sports year round. I watch the Bachelor/ette, but not for my own pleasure - I watch it because my grandpa loves it and we have something to chat about :)

Favorite Crafts

I like stickers. Painting! I love to attempt it. I do best when I have an instructor walking me through it. List of 5's. Stationary. Tell me a story. FBs. Slams. Paint by number. ATCs - I'm a beginner & I want to do all 32 teams of football! Cross-stitch - I'm pretty terrible at it, but it's relaxing and fun. Sewing & knitting - I haven't done this in years, but every now and then I want to do a project.

Favorite Audio

country, r&b, water music, rap - basically whatever piques my interest! I don't think I'm the only one who does this, but most times I hear new music, my automatic response is "I hate it. It's terrible" so my rational brain kicks in and I listen to it a few times and discover I actually do like it!

I'm super into podcasts lately. Here are a list of my favorites: Serial, Sword and Scale, Believed (about Larry Nassar), The Dream (a must listen!), True Crime Garage, Two Girls One Ghost, Up and Vanished, Serial Killers and Darkest Night.

My favorite is Eminem. I still remember the first time I heard his song and I was instantly hooked.

Favorite Animals

My ultimate favorite are my dogs: I am recently down to 1 pup from 3. Currently have a minpin. My Zoey went to the Big Dog Park in the Sky in Oct 2019 and Layla joined her in Sept 2022. I miss them both everyday. They are all unique and awesome in their own way and are great feet warmers on cold Minnesota winter nights! I love piggies - wait, I think I already said this. I love sloths - something about them both creeps me out and fascinates me!

Lately, llamas are my thing - this must be a trend, because I've seen some cute creative projects (paintings, posters, notebooks, etc.) and they're all so cute that I've now added the Llama to my list - ha!

I grew up walking through woods and going on trails and I love animals - they're all pretty cool in their own rights. Well, maybe except creepy-crawly bugs with lots of legs; however, I know that they are some people's jam :D


Postcards so are fun and I love receiving them. In general, I like all of them! It's fun to see what people like and what they have in their personal stash. Some of my favorites, but I like all postcards: Harry Potter universe, llama, sloth, pig, chihuahua, multi-scene, something you like, writing about your favorite song, dogs, pisces, zodiac, succulents, nature, lakes, vintage.


Harry Potter universe! I am currently re-reading the series. I am a Hufflepuff. I love the Golden Trio, Luna Lovegood, Neville Longbottom, Draco Malfoy, Hagrid and Dumbledore. But really, I love the entire universe.

Favorite Books

Harry Potter, of course! Lisa Regan (I'm reading her Josie Quinn series, but would love to read her other works (like Claire Fletcher or Jocelyn Rush). I loved Marcie Rendon's book "Girl Gone Missing" and would love to read the rest of the series. Paul Tremblay's books were amazing (A Head Full of Ghosts, Disappearance at Devils Rock and The Cabin at the End of the World)! I loved Debra Webb's series on the Undertaker's Daughter and would love to read any of her other series. I want to read more about the Amish as well as Indigenous peoples - if you know of any good books or series, let me know (I read Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and a few others, but would love to read more). Also, I like reading true accounts about the Mormon church (for example, I've read The Polygamist's Daughter). I really enjoyed Eric Jerome Dickey as well!

Comment: Love the card front that you sent with the cocoa and cookies! We're having a fairly warm start to the new year here in CT but I'm thinking about you in your 5ยฐ and hoping that you and your pup have warm coats.
Response: My babes definitely has some coats and luckily she loves wearing them! If only she'd wear booties/shoes! ha! so glad you liked the PC!
Comment: I wonder if the post office will ever get back to a reasonable schedule. I just received your card today and it's post marked the 17th! Thank you for the card and the fun bits included.

Comment: Thank you! I hope you got to go for that walk with your pup, and that the weather is better now! Happy New Year!
