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.
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.
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.
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.
