Child Life Specialist, Volunteer Coordinator
How about we… Grab all the fall favorites - cider donuts, shipyard pumpkin ale, and apples and have a picnic of sorts.
How about we… do a sangria tasting around the city. We could start along the waterfront.
An awesome place I've visited:
I loved Santa Barbara! I have been all over California but it seemed so European and American all at the same time. The wine, the ocean and the beautiful landscapes. It was perfect.
My perfect Sunday:
Depends on the time of year...winter would be getting up with a cup of coffee and a blueberry muffin then heading out for a snow sport (hopefully skiing). In the spring or summer, playing 9 holes of golf and having a great relaxing meal or bbq. In the fall going for a nice hike. All of the days would end with great conversation, a glass of wine, some music and then falling comfortably asleep.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Its a tie.... Ferris Beuller's Day Off (I can't quote most of it) and Beaches (a real tear jerker).
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Born, raised, fought for adventure, found it at times, seeking adventure and love. My life history is fun and definitely worth a conversation or two;)
My first concert / My dream concert:
First concert was the Beach Boys!!! Great show, I may even see it again for their 50th anniversary tour. I am a concert junkie, have seen several hundred and in different genres. I would say my dream concert would be any of my favorite country stars in Nashville.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Home organization. It is quite something. I am little crazy about it and have been bringing this knowledge/skill into my office of older ladies who are pack-rats. I am not always proud of this.....
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Guys that can make me laugh so hard I have run to the bathroom before I pee my pants. Belly laughs are just good for the soul. I would also say a spontaneous guy that brings me flowers (I am sucker for flowers).
For me, a first date no-no is:
No-no, hmmm.... I am pretty open minded but talking about money and how much they make then skimping on the bill/tip. I guess that would be my turnoff.
I secretly want to be:
The director of my department. I love leadership and think I would be pretty good at it. If that doesn't work, I want to be Wonder woman.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
Part of a team. A relationship is always a team approach. I also want someone who seeks adventure and the willingness to grow (mentally/spiritually) all our long life. Settling is not for the young at heart.
An infatuation of mine:
Tricep muscles, home decor, music and bbq's. So if I had a hunky guy sitting on a cool rattan patio set playing guitar while we waited for dinner to finish on the grill I would be in heaven.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Practically speaking - pay off my student loans. After that, I would buy a boat, sail around the world, see all the sites I haven't been able to see and then get a cool house on a lake. I would probably go back to work at some point because I love it.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I am a strong, independent woman that deserves to be loved and taken care of. She always says I am a little too independent and I should slow down and let someone take care of me.
I want to come home to:
A big hug from my spouse, some ideas for what awaits us - dinner, drinks, sitting on the couch and a big kiss from a dog.
