About Me

I’m a 40-something gal from the Midwest who likes to pretend that I’m a 20-something gal living the life of luxury in the Caribbean, or maybe Hawaii, heck I’d even settle for Florida.

10 NEW Things about Me:

1. I prefer yoga to running.
2. I like having the house all to myself.
3. I have unruly curly hair.
4. My favorite wine is Cabernet Sauvignon.
5. I am an expert grilled cheese maker.
6. I will always choose chocolate chip ice cream.
7. I put laundry baskets on my sofas when I leave the house so my dog can’t sit on them.
9. My daughter says I have seven stages of laughter, the final stage includes crying and not being able to speak.
10. I am a cat lady to the core.

The long version about me:

Married Darth Vader, have an awesome kid and a zoo of pets. I live in the suburbs, work in the family business, have a bachelors degree in criminal justice, and an MBA. HOLY CRAP PEOPLE, I FINALLY HAVE MY MBA!!!

I completed the Walt Disney World Goofy Race and a Half Challenge!!! 39.3 miles (technically 40 according to my Garmin) in two days! AND I rode a roller coaster during the marathon.

If all else fails I’m going to get my yoga certification and live out the rest of my life wearing yoga pants.

I love going to the movies, reading a good book, taking long bike rides, yoga, and running. I enjoy Sunday mornings because I can read the newspaper in my pj’s and drink my coffee. I’m addicted to tennis and watch all the tennis matches, especially the four grand slams.

I am a Ragnar Ambassador, a member of The North Face Endurance Challenge blogging team, and Half Fanatic #2507! WOOT!

I could live on grilled cheese sandwiches, caesar salads (hold the caesar dressing please), cheese pizza with black olives, yogurt, chocolate chip ice cream, and red wine. Oh and water. I drink a lot of water.

I have the uncanny ability to break glasses and cups. I drank out of Mason jars (from Classico spaghetti sauce) for 10 years, and recently graduated to using Tupperware. I love that Mason jar BTW, LOVE IT!

I’m here to tell you that Breaking Bad is the best tv show ever. The end.
