I am married to a sweet guy named Jeff. I don't have kids but our German Wirehair, Tuffy, keeps me busy.
I love fashion, going out to eat and sitting in a backyard around a fire. I sing karaoke- even though I'm an awful singer and I try to surround myself with good people who love to laugh.
Any veggies, pizza and even though I'm a vegetarian, every once in a while, I order the biggest slab of prime rib on the menu (medium rare)
Things I Can't Stand:
Rude people, uncomfortable shoes and wet lettuce (I'm a big salad person and if the lettuce hasn't been properly dried, it makes the dressing watered down and the entire salad gets soggy..GROSS!)
I don't have a favorite, but I do enjoy a good dive bar. Pool tables and dart boards are always a plus, oh- and the music should never be too loud unless there's a live band or it's a bar with a dance floor. I mean, seriously, why should we have to listen to some crappy old song blaring over the speakers when all I really want to do is hear the the conversation at the table. Then again- I do wear headphones everyday for work, so my hearing is probably less then fabulous.
Favorite Country Artists:
This is a tough one. For current artists- Eric Church, Zac Brown Band, Kip Moore and . I LOVE 90s country and Don Williams greatest hits is a go-to if I want a classic country fix.
I'm a speed walker. For anyone who doesn't know what that REALLY is, you're probably saying "so what?" But for those who've witnessed how truly idiotic it looks, let's just say, "you know what I'm talking about". I get laughed at and taunted on a daily basis.
I've taken up running in the last year and a half and have noticed the snickers from passersby stop if you're in a jog.
