My self-summary
I’m a sister, former mascot, Cornhusker for life. In the running for Best. Aunt. Ever. RPCV, published author, DIYer, proud Midwest transplant. Planner by nature, Consultant by trade, forever a dancer. Ambitious, debt-free, game for anything… at least once.

I have no problem making friends in a room full of strangers, making me an excellent +1 to weddings and work events. That said, I couldn't be more thankful for a small handful of my most amazing life-long friendships.

I think Dolly Parton and my Mom effectively sum up how I try to live my life:
-Growing up, my Mom had two rules: Be nice. Work hard.
-Dolly Parton once said, "Figure out who you are and do it on purpose."

I don't know my final destination, but I know what I want along the way. Looking for someone to share adventures and the life that happens in between.
What I’m doing with my life
I tend to be at my best when I have a lot going on and fill my waking hours with people, goals, travel, and stories worthy of a further conversation.
I’m really good at
People watching, high fiving, cooking breakfast for dinner, parallel parking, making lists (really good lists), remembering to water my plants, sending cards... through the mail, tactfully informing others to stand on the right and pass on the left of escalators.

Things I'd like to be really good at: ordering off a long menu, VLOOKUP, driving a manual transmission, rolling my R's in Spanish (there's a reason I speak French!), sleeping in.
The first things people usually notice about me

Also, I'm wearing my hair straight these days so friends and even family need a double-take to recognize me if I haven't seen them in a while! It's an unexpected, unintentional albeit fun little game I'm playing:) Need to update pics.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recent Books: The Devil in the White City - Erik Larson; David and Goliath - Malcolm Gladwell

Movies: The Thomas Crown Affair, Rudy, A Chorus Line, Love Actually, Seven, Little Shop of Horrors, Mannequin, Ocean's Eleven

Shows: The West Wing, So You Think You Can Dance (don't judge!), Gray's Anatomy, The League, Breaking Bad, The Newsroom, House of Cards

Music: I pick up music like I pick up accents - unexpectedly and without much effort. I like most of it and appreciate people who have an opinion about it. My iPod is usually on shuffle.

Food: Pretty adventurous and a big fan of the veggies. Can't go wrong with black beans, ice cream, brussels sprouts, and anything Mexican. Can't get on board with olives, pickles, or black licorice. Making an elaborate meal for family and friends is one of my favorite things.
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order...
1. Transit app
2. Ice Cream
3. Running shoes
4. Three nieces and nephew
5. College football
6. OneNote/Todoist

Update: After weeks of elimination testing, I am lactose intolerant. #2 remains on my list in memorium. RIP.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Buying and rehabing a house... soon!, hosting friends on my patio literally ANY day the weather will allow, a dog
On a typical Friday night I am
making it up as I go. A better conversation is about what I have in store for Saturday!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I could watch World's Strongest Man competitions for hours.
You should message me if
You've read this far and are some version of interested, entertained, or intrigued. Send me a message - emails are great, but I'd like to think I'm better in person.
