I love: camping, running on the lakefront path, hockey (die hard fan, go Hawks!), cooking, baking, sleeping, and traveling.
I'm a running coach training my team for the Chicago Marathon in October.
I love Dr. Who.
And Disney cartoons. It's kind of a problem.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an environmentalist, I take care of our lakefront for a living. Basically, that means I get paid to check out beaches and marinas. I love my job!
I'm also always cooking new things. I've been on a Mexican food kick lately!
I’m really good at
Water sports (i.e. swimming and water polo). I swam and played water polo all through high school and college, so be prepared if you find yourself in the water with me.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. They can be bright blue or a softer blue depending on the
colors around me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love food. A lot. But I have a lot of food allergies... think of me as a challenge if you love to cook. For some girls, chocolate is the way to their heart. For me, it's cinnamon rolls.
I read constantly. I read almost all genres, from Jane Austen to Harry Potter to Agatha Christie.
I like movies that are light and entertaining, but sometimes dabble in the heavy and thought provoking kind. I think of movies as a way to relax, and usually don't count extremely suspenseful or depressing movies as very relaxing.
I'm not much of a tv watcher, but I love Castle, Big Bang Theory (nerds are awesome) and How I Met Your Mother
Music wise, I will listen to just about anything. Mainly, I stick to alternative and Irish music. My favorite band is Great Big Sea, an Irish band from Canada. Their concerts are so much fun and I can't wait for them to come back to the Midwest!
The six things I could never do without
My friends and family.
Fire. I am a pyro and used to get paid to set large fires. They still let me help out on occasion.
Comfy couches and warm blankets. There is nothing better than curling up on a rainy day (and they count as one since they go together).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Food. I'm kind of hungry all the time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Running with my run club, drinking margaritas, exploring Lincoln Square, going out to eat!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I secretly want to be a meteorologist and live in the Mount Washington Observatory. Well, not so secret now, but who doesn't want to live at the home of the world's worst weather? There's just all that calculus that gets in the way.
