Taking a break from swapping right now...will be back after Summer and the kidos are back in school! Stay at home mom and part time piano teacher. Love to swim, cook, read, write,travel and go to the beach. I also like sci-fi series on tv, and am a Jane Austen fan.
I love to read! Frequent Shelfari.com for new book ideas and reviews. I love paranormal romance/vampires/ghost stories. Historical English/Scottish romance also a plus. Favorite authors: Jane Austen, Lynn Kurland, Stephenie Meyer, Nora Roberts and Kathleen Givens.
I watch alot of Sci-fi - didn't know I really liked it until I started watching Buffy years ago! Love the Stargate series, Torchwood and Dr. Who. Grew up on Star Wars :). Like reality tv Amazing Race. Lost is my favorite. Like Psych and Monk to watch with the kids - pretty family friendly.
I have a broad spectrum of musical intrests. I play and teach piano so I love the classics: Debussy, Mozart, Beethoven, Grieg among favorites. Depending on my mood and if my kids are in the car I listen to: Muse, Linkin Park, Finger Eleven, Josh Kelley, Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Daughtery, Lifehouse, 80's alternative, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Journey. My music is defintely eclectic!
I used to be an avid scrapbooker when the kids were little and I had only 1! I do enjoy creating layouts when I have the time. I have gotten into digital scrapbooking as I'm in front of the computer too much and it's easier to type and put something together. I also enjoy crocheting baby blankets and scarves. One of these days I want to try socks and knitting. I do loom hats for humanitary projects in our church with my girls and we have a blast doing that! From time to time I liked to break out the paints and paint pottery.
I love to receive little extras, like tea for reading, just note that I only drink herbal tea and no alcohol. Thanks!
