My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The playoffs are here! 10 down, 6 to go. Let's go Hawks!

Welcome to my world. I have two lovely daughters, one step, age 32 who has been in my life since the age of 6, the other age 21 who is currently in college. Just recently I have been graced with the title "Nona" (Grandma) to the prettiest baby girl. I couldn't have asked for anything better than that! Everything that follows is just a bonus.

I have worked 2 very different professions, but both in making others feel better. No office work for this girl. I do have great interior design sense and love doing it just for fun. Fabric stores make me smile. I have my favorite power tools to make my job easier. Pretty easy to make me happy, just take me to LOWES. Though I am most comfortable in my worn jeans and cowboy boots, I have black tie down to a science (I have a closet full of gowns to prove it). I am very close to my family who all live within a mile of me. My nieces consider me the cool aunt, one they also feel no subject is off limits to. It is a real eye opener! Well, at least to any newcomer at family parties that is. I try to work out 3X a week because though I look pretty good in a pair of jeans, I think I look better in them then out. I love to ice skate and hockey is my favorite sport. If its space you need to watch your favorite team, have at it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I became a hairstylist right out of H.S. I put myself through college to become a nurse, specializing in OB/GYNE (could be why my nieces feel no subject is off limits). Both of these professions gave me the options to work hours I wanted and needed to. I also have done some design work. I am hands on when it comes to decorating.
I am enjoying being a grandmother immensely.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making the one room the elderly move into at an assisted care residence feel like a home. That is a joy to do. Interior design. Negotiating a deal on a car. Making great stuffed artichokes. :-)

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I will skip the necessities to keep my heart beating.

2. Family and friends
3. Cowboy boots
4. NHL-BlackHawks
5. Dairy Queen ice cream cake
6. Creativity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Will the BlackHawks win the Stanley cup this season. :-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If there is a Hawks game on then I'm either in my girl cave or at this great sports restaurant /bar here in town watching it. Otherwise either out with friends/family for dinner or relaxing and watching a movie with said friends/family.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am the worlds messiest tooth brusher, but it doesn't stop me from doing it. I promise never to do it in front of you if you promise not to floss in front of me. EVER
