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.
2 of the 3 make perfect sense and the other one is still sound advice but a little more intense...
Make These 3 Changes to Increase Calorie Burn
1. Hello Darkness- Even though it's much darker in the morning these days- working out in the A.M. has a big payoff- you burn more calories!
2. Get Speedy- When it comes to cardio, running will help you lose more weight than walking since it burns more calories, but if you increase your speed just a little, then you'll burn even more. And don't stick to the same speed, adding sprint intervals is really effictive.
3. Strength Train in the Ladies' Room- This one seems a little over the top for me but we all know that the more muscle mass you have, the easier it is to lose weight. This article recommends strength training moves throughout your day, such as push-ups on the bathroom counter and two minutes of squats while you brush your teeth.'

Dayna Morales, a restaurant server in New Jersey and former U.S. Marine, claimed a family left her no tip and a hateful note- it left many people outraged.
NBC New York
What did the alleged note say?
"I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life."
Morales, who is gay, had posted the receipt with the note on Facebook.
Now the diners have come forward to say they not only left a tip but had not written a note on the check.
NBC New York
Yahoo reports- The family, which wished to remain anonymous, told NBC New York it left Morales a $18 tip. The customers reportedly provided a copy of the receipt as proof as well as a credit card statement "which appears to indicate their card was charged for the meal plus the tip, for a total of $111.55."
The husband said, "The restaurant profits from this; obviously Dayna profits from this. It's fraud. It's a scam."
The restaurant told NBC New York it is conducting an internal investigation into the incident.
