  • Hobbies & Interests

  • Favorite Books

    I have read all the Twilight and Harry Potter books.  It was fun reading them with my group of friends that were reading them at the same time.  We had so much fun talking about the books together.  It’s interesting to hear how different people interpret the same book. I love to read for pleasure and entertainment and I’m open to reading all different types of books.

  • Favorite Music

    I love just about any kind of music...all except for rap(I guess, I’m just not that cool).  My choices change depending what I’m in the mood for.  Some of the ones that I never get tired of hearing are bands like Train, Matchbox Twenty, The Goo Goo Dolls, Sting, Maroon 5 and artists that have that smooth sound.  My teenage son influences my music choices too.  So I listen to Switchfoot, The Foo Fighters and The All American Rejects when I really feel like jamming out!

  • Interests

    I love photography.  It is such a thrill for me to be able to capsure someone’s personality on film.  I shoot photos of my family, which is how I got hooked on my other hobby...scrapbooking.  It’s fun to see how all the different colored paper make the photos pop!  I love to get together with my friend. We can spend the entire weekend when the our kids are at their dad’s, scrapbooking, talking, listening to music and sipping wine. We make as many memories as we do scraping them!

I love to cook, decorate, craft and try new wines.  I wish I could add working out to my list of things I love to do, but I would be lying.  Unless shopping, working and keeping up with kids count as a work out (and I think it should really).  I’m a people person and get along with just about everybody.  I love to meet and make new friends.  That is what I like most about this site.  

I’m a mom of two really great boys, but being a mom has it’s challenges some days.  It’s fun watching them grow up into their own unique personalities.  My oldest is 14 and a freshman in high school and my youngest is 6 and a kindergartener.  A huge span in ages I know...it wasn’t planned that way, but about the time I quit trying to have another was about the same time I got pregnant!  God certainly has a sence of humor, because my late in life baby was born on my birthday and when he was celebrating his 1st birhday...I was celebrating my 40th!  

We have a cat named Tigger, a dog named Snoop (dog) after the rapper, but don’t hold that against me because it wasn’t my idea (see music tastes) and a goldfish named Admiral Soap.  My boys would love to have more and secretly I would too, but we have enough for now.  

I love to watch HGTV and had always wanted to buy an older house and fix it up to flip. Well, be careful what you wish for, right?  It’s been a lot of hard work, but I have had a blast painting and designing our home.  It has been really good therapy for me and when I complete a project, it’s a great feeling to stand back and admire my work.

I’m active in my church.  We are members of a really fast growing church in our area.  It’s exciting to be a part of something so inovative and see how God blesses it and everybody involved.
