11 Random Things About Me:
1.  When I leave a voicemail, it’s usually 5 minutes long.  I’m like the energizer bunny…I just keep going and going and going and going….

2.  I’m a black belt in karate.

3.  I’m a huge girly girl…I love anything pink, sparkly, fuzzy.

4.  I’m also a huge nerd…I’m obsessed with Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Left 4 Dead (yes, I am a gamer).

5.  I’ve traveled all around Europe including France, Italy, and Spain, and I can’t wait to go back with my husband!

6.  Despite growing up in sunny SoCal, I don’t surf.  I tried it once when I was 10 and was awful.  Had no desire to try again.

7.  I hate warm door knobs and warm chairs…they gross me out, I don’t know why, but they do.

8.  I make goofy and random noises all the time.

9.  I'm married to a police officer :)

10.  I lived in New York City for four years and I earned a double degree in Finance and Economics.

11.  My wardrobe (shoes included) is from Nordstrom.  Nordies has always been my favorite store for as long as I can remember and I buy everything there (with the exception of some things from Banana Republic and Forever 21).  *When my mom first found out she was having a girl, the first thing she did was go to Bloomingdales and by me my first bib that was yellow with pink writing "Born to Shop."

1.  What is your favorite color?  PINK!

5.  How long have you lived where you live now?  I’ve grown up in this city my entire life, so nearly 26 years (minus 4 years when I lived in NYC).  But my husband and I recently bought a house and we’ve been there about 3 months.
6.  What was your first CD purchase?  TLC’s “Crazy Sexy Cool”

7.  How many siblings do you have? Do you get along with all of them?  Two brothers, one younger and one older.  They are two of my best friends.
