About Me

So I just now realized after viewing someone else's profile that there are these little tabs that lets you create different subjects! OOPSIE. So let me fix this. (although I also didn't plan on spilling the beans about myself entirely here because what am I suppose to write to someone about once I have rambled on here!?!?! LOL and yes, I like to ramble if you can't tell)

I am a mommy of 2 wonderful boys. Who are getting to big each day, and although sometimes I miss them being young, I am enjoying watching them become their own. :) I work full time, so I sometimes struggle with not being able to enjoy doing the things I like to do because I don't always want to do much once I get off work.

I enjoy getting mail that is not bills or junk mail! I enjoy writing to others and learning about other areas of the World. Although sometimes I do need to make my letters or pc short and sweet, or typed because my writing hand has started to cramp and it can be slightly painful. SAD FACE here! :(

Favorite Music

I really enjoy any kind of music except for Opera. I like hip hop, rock, country, you name it!

I have been to a variety of concerts in my life, with my most recent being Maroon 5. And even though it was my most recent, it by far has been my FAVORITE! I am not one to be really good with knowing who sings what songs (except from childhood) so when I hear a song, I may or may not know who sings it. When I was at Maroon 5's concert I was completely shocked that EVERY single song they sang, I had heard before! and no, I didn't know they were all them lol.

Just to show you I like a variety of artists, I like Rush, Aerosmith, Eminem, Madonna, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts........... just to name a few.

Favorite Books

I am an avid reader......... In the past 6 months I have read all of the Divergent series, Fifty shades of Grey, Paper Towns, Fault in our Stars, Looking for Alaska. SO I downloaded the app on my phone so I can enjoy books this way as well, and it is much cheaper. However I actually enjoy having a book in my hand.

Favorite Movies

My ALL time favorite movie is The Breakfast Club.

Then there are these movies that I can watch over and over, even if I just seen it the previous day or week:
Titanic, Sixteen Candles, The Proposal, Bridesmaids just to name a few.

I enjoy going to the movies with my boys, and when there is no school Mondays each week we go see a movie. While school is in session, we don't get to go as often, sadly.

Favorite Television

I am a tv junkie. It is bad, and I know it. But I don't care. Every day of the week as of March 2015 I have a show to watch except for Fri and Saturdays. But those days I sometimes have to play catch up because some nights I have too many shows on that I have to dvr them. Want a list? OK! here you go:

-Law and Order SVU
-Scandal
-Survivor
-Pretty Little Liars
-Revenge
-Secrets and LIes
-The Originals
-Vampire Diaries
-Real World
-The Challenge
-Dance Moms
-Switched at Birth
-Sister Wives
-How to Get Away with Murder
-Love and Hip Hop
-Mob Wives
-Teen Mom

These shows haven't come back on yet but I watch once on:

-Big Brother

-Teen Wolf

These shows I will watch, but if I don't watch I am ok with it:

-Hells Kitchen
-American Idol
-The Voice
-19 kids and counting
-Bar Rescue
-Catfish
-Amazing Race

see.... I am a tv junkie. And I am quite sure there are probably some shows I forgot to mention!

Favorite Crafts

I love to attempt new crafts. I am always trying to make something new. I have done things with perler beads, crochet, tulle skirts, sewing pillowcases, just to name a few. But this is one of the areas that sometimes doesn't get as much time since I work so much.

Hobbies etc

I LOVE to collect the following items:

pressed pennies
keychains
Disney pins
Post cards
Magnets

I am a candy fanatic, my bosses laugh cause they always know they can walk into the store and there will be candy on the desk. My teeth don't thank me. lol

I am a huge Disney fanatic. My favs snow white, belle and maleficent. But I love them all.

Animals: love animals.

Panda bears, Leopard, dolphin and wolves are my top favs.
Panda Bears, I actually have a collection of stuffed animals of pandas. How can I forget this!?! It started as an infant, my uncle gave me one, and ever since I have received a plush panda bear. Well it stopped about 10 years ago, not by my choice. I still have them all, but they are packed away with the exception of the one my uncle gave me. He sits on my tv stand with my chicago bears hat!

Sports: yes, I LOVE the Chicago Bulls (basketball)! I like the Bears (football) too.......don't care about baseball. and hockey, well its ok.

I appreciate religion, however do not wish to receive anything religious.

Favorite color: Red

Favorite food: Italian (I long to one day to be able to visit Italy. I always did reports on Italy when I was in jr high and we had to write reports on somewhere outside of the US)

Comment: Thanks for the ice cream ATC - very cute! Unfortunately, the pin did not make it through the mail. :( The envelope looked like it might have ripped in transit. But that's okay! I still enjoyed getting your stuff.
