Hobbies
Keeping up with my four growing-up-too-fast children (one at the University of Illinois, one recently graduated from SIU-Edwardsville, one in the United States Air Force and the "baby" in high school). Since that doesn't take up as much time as I'd like, I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible so I can indulge in hiking, fishing, camping, boating, gardening and riding four-wheelers.
Favorite Food
Any and everything under the sea! Especially shrimp dishes -- so long as it's NOT fried.
Favorite Musicians
I'm a Rock n' Roll girl! I was a teenager in the 80's, so I have a definite fondness for the hair metal bands (Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Ratt, Guns N' Roses, etc.) but my absolute favorites are Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.
Favorite Movies
There are so many movies I would consider my favorites, so it comes down to a tie between the 1970 classic comedy M*A*S*H and the hilarious 1984 mockumentary This is Spinal Tap. Just thinking about those two gets me chuckling.
Favorite TV Shows
My TV habits change a lot. Right now, I bounce from new comedies (The Mindy Project, Modern Family and Brooklyn Nine-Nine) to old westerns (The Rifleman, Gunsmoke and Cheyenne) to the History Channel (Ancient Aliens). A perfect balance of giggles, nostalgia and "I'm not saying it's aliens, but it's ALIENS!"
Favorite Book
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. My grandmother had this book in her house, and I was fascinated by the cover as a child. I got my own copy in high school, and I've read it more times than I can remember in the last 20 years!
