7 Interesting Things About Me

  1. I started and run the website www.basicboutique.com, however my day job is in corporate finance....bor-ing.
  2. When I was in 5th grade I met Jason Priestly, Ian Ziering, and David Austin Greene. They were staying next door to us in Galena (of all places)!?! I have tons of pics to prove it...AND I'm wearing my sweet ass hypercolor t-shirt tucked into jeans!!!
  3. I could eat a million oreo cookies, double stuffed preferably!
  4. I met my husband in a bar at UofI, he had posed in my sorority's charity "men of UofI" calendar...and was BOMBED and went up to him and said "hey calendar boy" and then kissed him. We had never met previous to this!
  5. I love to travel, especially places where the water is that gorgeous crystal blue...dream vacay, Bora Bora hands down.
  6. I love any movie with an abnormally large freaky animal...Jurassic Park, Lake Placid (monster croc), Deep Blue Sea (crazy big shark), King Kong, most alien movies qualify and LOVED Avatar.
  7. I'm obsessed with Friends & Sex & the City...never get sick of watching the reruns, BUT I do own every season of each just in case they ever stop airing!!

Thank you so much for the award!!! I could also eat Double Stuffed Oreos every day. We always have some in our pantry. And I'm the same way with Friends: I own every season but I watch the reruns on TV a lot.
