Introduction Married for 7 years to my absolute best friend in the world---Nathan! We live in Arizona and have 2 incredibly hyper dogs (Bandit the Aussie Shepherd and little Belle Belle the Aussie Cattle Dog--who BTW, is quite insane). After years of infertility and a succesful round of IVF back in January, we are expecting a sweet baby girl on October 1st. Yay for a nice tax deduction in 2009!!!We love spending time with family, friends, our church and neighbors!
Interests Reading, perusing the bookstore for more books to purchase, writing, cooking, travel, hiking, golfing, exercise, needlepoint, spending time with the hubby and working on the house and yard (Lowes is my favorite place to shop)!!!! ;-)
Favorite Movies Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre (BBC), North and South (BBC), Shadows in the Sun, The Guardian, Princess Pride, Conspiracy Theory, Horatio Hornblower (A&E), the Man From Snowy River & Return to Snowy River, MI-5 (BBC)...I seem to have a preference for all things British...hmmm.
Favorite Music Everything on our Ipod! We're really eclectic in our tastes. Switchfoot, Johnny Cash, Nickleback, Delirious, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, Mat Kearney, Third Day, Creedance Clearwater, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and tons of instrumentals and soundtracks! I differ w/Nathan on Metallica and several other bands. Ugh.
