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
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.
1. My 2 daughters and grand daughter
2. Family and friends
3. Cowboy boots

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
