My self-summary
If you want to know about someone, watch where they spend their time, right? One of my favorite things to do with a few spare minutes is to pop into a Hallmark store, find a fun card, and send a note to a friend. If I have a bit more time, you'll probably find me out with friends, jogging, playing music, or curled up with a glass of wine and a good book. A friend and I started a 5k training program at a local homeless shelter, so you'll often find me down there walking or jogging with the women.

I love to learn about new things -- as much as I know I'm out-ting myself as the complete nerd that I am with this information, things I have tried to teach myself in the past have included such random subjects as ancient Hebrew and SQL. Most recently, I've been working on DIY projects around my home and tinkering in the kitchen.

I'm certainly in no rush to get there, but long-term I see myself with a large, friendly dog; the "average" 2.5 kids; and a loving husband. I'm very close to my family (despite the fact that my mom makes us take the cheesy Christmas pictures every year -- see above!). My parents just celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary. Someday, I hope to be so lucky.

My "perfect" match would be intelligent and ambitious, but he'd also know that relationships are more important than anything else. He'd be fun-loving and warm. He'd want to spend time together, but he'd also want to have time apart to pursue our interests individually. Oh, and he'd be popular with dogs and kids (always good judges of character, in my experience!).
What I’m doing with my life
Professionally, my life has taken a few unexpected twists, and I'm mostly enjoying the ride. Left the consulting world a few years ago to take a job as an executive at an educational materials/services company.
I’m really good at
laughing at myself, which makes it much easier to try out new things!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Pride and Prejudice, Atlas Shrugged, Traveling Mercies, anything by C.S. Lewis, cheesy whodunit chick lit – books with titles like “Death by Chocolate” and “Lethal Lipstick.”

Shows: I don't own a TV, but when I watch on Netflix, I enjoy How I Met Your Mother, Arrested Development, or anything on HGTV.

Music: According to iTunes, my "top 25 most played" list includes Adele, Missy Higgins, Sara Bareilles, Casting Crowns, and Nickel Creek.

Food: The spicier, the better! I also like to keep it healthy-ish most of the time.
Six things I could never do without

- a new challenge
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work. Not in a bad way -- I just love my job and often find myself chewing on a work problem when I have some down time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Totally depends -- I'm equally happy to get dressed up and go out or to stay in and have a quiet night with friends.
