A wife – I have an amazingly supportive husband who not only funds my book-buying habit, but oftentimes tells me to turn off the TV and read.
A Dog Owner – I have two awesome rescues, a chocolate lab mix and a mutt who could be anything from a bulldog to a boxer to a corgie.
An El Camino Lover – There’s something about a truck car that I think is awesome! I went for a spin in one for the first time in high school and I’ve been in love ever since. I prefer a 1967 with a bench seat, but I would take any.
A Shark Conservationist – Stop Finning! Sharks are extremely important to our ecosystem and are in danger. Predator sharks, in particular, have seen up to a 99% decline in populations over the past 20 years and it is important that we protect them.

A Tiramisu Eater – I think that tiramisu is the greatest dessert (or food) on the planet. I love it.
A Law & Order Addict– Let me specify: I love the originals and SVU. I’m not a big fan of CI or LA. I have been watching them since I was a kid and I snuck peeks at the show when my grandmother didn’t know I was looking. I’ve seen every episode at least 5 times. Chances are, I’m watching an episode as you read this.
A News Junkie – I have B.A. in Political Science, so this is no surprise. I stopped watching the 24 hour news because I felt I was unlearning things by watching it and try to read articles from all sides of the political spectrum. But I love it all.
A Quesadilla Snob– I love quesadillas, but I’m picky about it. I think a restaurant that serves quesadillas without serving guacamole should be shut down because it’s a crime against good food. Best quesadillas I’ve ever had are at Firebelly’s in Wilmington, NC (they call them quesa mesas).
A Florida Gators Fan – I grew up in Gainesville, FL, so I bleed Orange and Blue.
A Little Bit Weird – I don’t even know how to expand on this because what other people think is weird, I think is normal. Sometimes I walk in palindromes and I don’t like even numbers. And I need things to be symmetrical.
A Big Sister – I am the oldest of four girls and I’m fortunate that we all get along!
A Coffee Drinker– I easily drink four cups of coffee a day. Sometimes more. I can have coffee at night and still sleep like a baby
A Former Girl Scout – Yep! Until I graduated high school! And we went to London. And I even got my Silver Award. We even made it into a book!
A Serial Nap Taker – I can take a nap anywhere, anytime. You can usually find me sleeping between the hours of 4 and 7pm unless I have something really exciting to do.
