My Website

eat, drink, be merry: Tell us your go to meal

I love to cook up some noodles, any kind, and saute them with veggies, fresh garlic, and some olive oil. Top it off with Parmesan cheese and it's the perfect meal. You can add chicken or pretty much any other meat, and the best part is leftovers are delicious cold.

beauty & fashion: I can skip these

Bright colors aren't my thing, I don't like to spend money on super trendy styles, expensive make up brushes are fine but fingers are better.

I NEVER go without these

Moisturizer, mascara and lip gloss are always within reach. Good lotion for my dry sensitive skin, and foundation to even out my color.
My retro Maryjane heels for work, antique jewelry and a cute pair of jeans.

Biggest splurge or steal in my closet

My LAMB purse, luckily it was a gift!

do-gooder: Why I am one

My boyfriend and I are a 1 car family, we both love to reduce our carbon foot print, recycle and bring our own bags for shopping. I also try to buy as many of my groceries at the local farmers markets as possible, Minnesota is a farming state so farmers markets are big business around here.

read, watch, listen:Favorite books

So many! I read constantly, Jane Austen is probably my favorite author. And I love Harry Potter, also historical novels are probably my favorites. I just finished the Hunger Games and have to say I loved them, I'm also reading a serious of Steampunk novels set in Victorian England, by Gail Carriger. It's a guilty pleasure.

Favorite bands

So much! We have satelite radio in the care and I love being able to flip between the Frank Sinatra station and new wave 80's goodness. Some of my favorite bands/musicians are; Shiny Toy Guns, David Bowie, Hungry Lucy, Depeche Mode, Robyn, Lily Allen, and so many more.

Favorite TV shows

Bones, Glee, Dr Who, and Torchwood. I'm a great big geek and I love it. My boyfriend also makes me watch Ghost Hunters so sometimes I get really into that.

Favorite movies

Amelie, The Ghost and Mrs Muir, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Pretty in Pink, Roman Holiday, the Harry Potter movies, and pretty much any adaptation of a Jane Austen book.

home & living:My favorite room in my house

My library, it's where I go to relax, lay on the couch with my dogs, and read a good book.

potluck:Five people (dead or alive) I’d invite to a party

Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Tutor, Jane Austen, Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra

If I were an 80’s movie/tv/music star, I’d be

Molly Ringwald ala Pretty In Pink, except I wouldn't have been able to cut up that insanely perfect prom dress from Iona and probably would have never taken it off again.
