I was born & raised in Kentucky... I graduated from Spalding University (Communications major, theatre minor-- now there's money well-spent!) I've been married to my darling Ron since November of 2004 and I collect pigs...seriously-- I have thousands! :-) I'm very proud to be a breast cancer survivor, so needless to say breast cancer awareness is extremely important to Ron & me... including Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the American Cancer Society. And since we're animal geeks, we also love the Humane Society. Favorite TV shows: The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, American Pickers and anything involving the paranormal, like Ghost Adventures or Ghost Hunters--why, I don't know! Any cooking show will suck me in, too. What I love: (Besides Ron, obviously!) CHOCOLATE, animals, cupcakes, black & white movies, college basketball, travel. Favorite travel spots: England, Germany, France, Ireland, Alaska, Colorado...anywhere there are mountains! (I may be the only woman on the planet that doesn't like the beach...if it gets hot there I don't wanna go!) Favorite food: Anything to do with a big ol' unhealthy Southern breakfast--biscuits, gravy, country ham, etc., German, Italian, Chinese. Did I mention CAKE? Favorite Country Artists: George Strait, Eric Church, Alison Krauss, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band, Chris Young. All-time favorites: Johnny Cash, Don Williams, Dolly Parton, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Statler Brothers, Barbara Mandrell, Vince Gill, Steve Wariner, Garth Brooks, Vern Gosdin.
