A Little Bit About Me

family and friends, odd and unusual, wine club, work

 For all intents and purposes, I am pretty normal gal.  I have a semi-normal life, married to my husband for almost 7 years, raising our little girl, working full time as a city inspector (more about that later), and just trying to keep things afloat on a daily basis.  I moved to Bay View a year ago and I LOVE it here.  But that's the boring stuff- here's a few things about me that are more interesting and somewhat entertaining:

1.  I love to Zumba.  For those of you who don't have a clue what I'm talking about, Zumba is a latin-inspired dance workout.  We salsa, meringue, cha-cha, reggaeton, hip hop and generally rock out and shake it for a hour at a time.  It's joyous and expressive, sassy and spicy, and an awesome workout.  I'm excited to try my moves out when hubby and I go to Mexico next month- I plan on hitting the dance floor!

2.  Be warned.  I have red hair and all the fire, temper, and passion that goes with it.  And so does my 4 year old daughter.  Pair that with my Type A personality and things can get a bit dramatic around here.  That alone keeps life pretty interesting.

3.  And speaking of red hair, my neighborhood is home to a family of beautiful red foxes.  If you live east of KK near Oklahoma Ave. you likely know exactly what I am talking about.  We see at least one of them almost daily, and for some reason I am fascinated with them!  These creatures are ridiculously bold, and kill things around my home on a regular basis.  It's like "Wild Kingdom" around here- and I have a bunch of stories to share.

4.  I run a local wine club.  Wine is one of my great passions- as a matter of fact I'm sipping a nice Albarino as I sit here and type.  I have made many dear friends through my club, which is comprised completely of women.  We meet monthly to explore a particular varietal, region, or style of wine.  It's a fun, boisterous time, and in between talking about our kids, husbands, favorite TV shows and assorted "girl chit chat", we even talk about wine!

 5.  Finally, I am a parrothead.  Translated- I am a huge Jimmy Buffett fan.  I'm still waiting to find my own personal Margaritaville, though I've definitely been to that One Particular Harbor.

That being said, I hope you enjoy reading my blogs in the days and months ahead.  I know I am looking forward to writing them.
