Here are a few things that are my favorites & interests, in no particular order…
Family First – I love my hubby, three beautiful daughters and newborn son, and our dog Grace.
Coffee – Coffee with cream. Yep, that’s where it’s at! I enjoy French Press, Americano’s, iced coffee, mochas, salted caramel mochas, pumpkin lattes, and peppermint mochas. I am not really a coffee snob, but I do like a good cup of joe.
Fitness -Walking, Pilates, Yoga, Running, Zumba, P90X, 21 Day Fix, Core De Force, Hiking, and Leisure Swimming. Read my blogs on “Lessons Learned in Running” and track my progress through running my first ever half marathon.
Music – Singing, Song Writing, & Playing the Piano. My favorite types of music are Jazz (All types), Classic Christmas music. Otherwise, I pretty much can find a song in any genre of music that I like.
Movies – Curled up on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn. I like action, sit on the edge of your seat movies; musicals; and clean comedies.
Dancing – Dancing with big crowds of people like at a wedding, or by myself when no one is watching.
Gardening – I love perennials cause they come back every year. Maintaining my garden is a great stress reliever for me. I cannot stand thistles!
Food – Yep, I love it! That’s primarily why I workout! Mmm… Italian, Mexican, Asian, Indian. I don’t do seafood. Occasionally fish, as long as it’s doused in tartar sauce. Favorite appetizer is a soft pretzel with cheese.
Wine/Beer – I love New Glarus Spotted Cow and dark brews, stouts. Unfortunately as of late, I cannot drink wine–it starts an allergic reaction. I think from the sulfates. But I used to enjoy semi-dry wines; i.e., Prairie Fume (Wollersheim Winery); River Gold (Wollersheim Winery); Moscato.
Shopping – Only when I know what I am looking for and have a pretty good idea where to get it. I can leisurely shop with good friends, but only for short amount of time before I need another cup of coffee.
Vacations – I love going anywhere, as long as I am with good company.
