Hobbies
I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible so I can indulge in hiking, fishing, camping, biking, boating, gardening, photography 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 (Drunk History) to old westerns (The Virginian) to the History Channel (Ancient Aliens). A perfect balance of giggles, nostalgia and "I'm not saying it's aliens, but it's definitely 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 25 years!
