I live in Cincinnati,OH. I am the mom of five kids,17,14 and a set of 5 year old triplet boys.I work part time as a pediatric emergency room nurse.I love traveling to new places.I think half the fun of vactions is in the planning.When I do go on trips I always get a magnet and postcard to add to my collection. I love magnets everything from touristy ones to retro,funky ones.I love old cookbooks,I think it is fun trying out some of the old recipes from the 50's and 60's( especially some of the crazy jello ones).I like collecting ephemera.My favorite colors are purple (all shades) and green and silver .I do like color combinations of pink and brown,black and white,lime green and turquoise.I love getting cool funky jewlrey,especially bracelets and pins to put on my purse.I love getting mail that is humerous,it is great to get something in the middle of a crazy chaotic day that can make you stop andlaugh,you just need that sometimes!I am always taking pictures, especially of my kids and my dog ( she is a 13 year old black lab named prudence).I love to try new and different foods. I definetly love junkfood, and have a weak spot for chocolate.I am a coffee and tea drinker.I love making different concoctions in my blender,especially in the summer. I am addicted to flavored shiny lip glosses, the only flavor so far that I have found that I don't like is chocolate.Also another addiction is scented lotions/bodywashes,I love how thescents change with the seasons. I always have candles burning( or oil or a tart)again I like changing scents with the seasons,but I always have a buttercream from Yankee candle around,this is defintely my fav,reminds me of birthday cakes.I would be happy to get anything in a swap, I just love to get mail. I have always loved getting mail since I was a child. I think I have passed that onto my 14 yo daughter,because the first thing she asks when she comes home from school is "Did I get any mail ?"
I love all kinds of music.Some of my favorites are Janis Joplin, Red Hot Chili Peppers,Bare Naked Ladies,The Who, INXS, the Beatles, Bon Jovi ,REM,Dave Matthews,Collective Soul,Bob Marley,Jack Johnson, the White Stripes.

I like trying different kinds of teas,I really like fruit flavored teas.I just discovered that roobios tea is awesome. Since I have started doing the tea swaps I have started collecting the outside wrappers from the tea I receive.I love flavored coffee, either ground or whole bean . I love using my french press. I also like hot apple cider.I alos enjoy loose tea
