I'm a wife and Mom who is closer to 50 than 40.. I live with my DH, my teenaged DD and my 2 dogs.
I love to travel and dine out. I like to read books and magazines. I find swimming and alone time relaxing. I enjoy girl time with my gal pals. I'm addicted to pinterest.
I love candy bars! I enjoy new recipes.
My DD plays travel team softball and it takes a lot of time, money & energy. She also recently started competitive volleyball.
I am pretty straight-forward in my music taste, I like the 'today's hits' on Pandora. LOL! I listen to many other things because of my daughter. And, I am a child of the 80's and as such enjoy that as well.
Chick Lit, Mysteries, Social Commentary, Comedy.
I'll read just about anything, I'm not at all snobbish in my choices!
The 'Art of Racing in the Rain,' is one of my favorite books; recent books I've read and enjoyed are 'The Circle', the Julia Spencer-Fleming Russ/Clare books, Sookie Stackhouse books, 'Where'd You Go, Bernadette?'
Current Faves: Doctor Who, Sherlock, Amazing Race, Survivor, Project Runway, Top Chef
All Time Faves: Buffy, Angel, ST:TNG, Batman:TAS
I am a scrapbooker. I can always use glue dots and embellishments. My style tends more toward "simple" than "cluttered" and I'm not a fan of the collage-y style (for my stuff, some people can make it work - I just can't.) I Love pre-prettied chipboard embellishments and letters. (Glittery Thickers, for example.)
Dabble in other papercrafts and card making.
I own a sewing machine, but even "Sewing for Dummies" confuses me.
I used to cross-stitch obsessively.
I am dabbling in Project Life-type scrapbooking, but not Project Life -- I mean I'm looking toward pocket pages instead of big page layouts.
I love most colors, with a special love for purple and the combination of pink & green together. Our household colors are mostly blue (living areas and bedroom) and mostly yellow (family room and kitchen.) I scrapbook with mainly girly colors, because I have a DD.
My non-love colors are browns and greens... I'm not a real earthy kinda gal, I guess!
I don't do a lot of scented things in the house, as DH is scent-sensitive. I can usually get away with fruity or food scented things - orange & vanilla most notably.
As far as a personal scent, I adore jasmine-based scents for lotions, shampoos, soaps, etc. I also enjoy cucumber/melon.
I love chunky bracelets with lots of dangly doo-dads.
My jewelry non-love would be necklaces. I always feel like I'm choking, no matter the length.
I love to know how things are done, I really adore kits of things with directions.
I'm a tea drinker, but mostly tend towards caffeinated & black! But I'll try other types.
My love would be flavored diet sodas - if only more varieties came in caffeine free!
My non-love drink would be coffee. Blech! Can't see how people actually drink that stuff, let alone have the smell of it around! But, don't get me wrong, Starbuck's has some other mighty fine drink options!
I love my dogs, and all other dogs I have had, will have, or have ever seen! My non-love would be cats. I'm mildly allergic, plus I just don't get them!
I love the NFL and NASCAR (I have no idea why this appeals to me, as I'm most definitely not in their demographic!) My team is the Pittsburgh Steelers and my driver is Dale, Jr.! I play softball and tennis. I'm not really into the NBA or MLB, but we do follow the "local" teams - Trailblazers and Mariners.
be at the coast. Watching the waves crash in, listening to their beat, smelling the sea, and feeling the water in the air. Give me a book, a comfy chair, and a view of the ocean and I'm in heaven. Toss in a cute cabana boy, and you'd never get me to leave! :)
Of course, every package is a gift from the heart! However, here are some truly random things I'd be thrilled to receive:
~Sleep Mask ~Black Zig Pens ~Purple Ink Pens ~Return Address Labels ~Blank Journals with Unlined Pages ~A Book You Read and Liked ~Unique Christmas Decor (ornaments)
