Bloggers PhotoMy Bio
Hello and thank you for stopping by to check out my bio. I recently moved to Southern CA from beautiful Victor, CO-Population 450 Elevation 9696 and I'm lovin' CA. The weather is lovely and the people are divine for the most part.

My husband and I won a car on Let's Make a Deal.  If you'd like to see our it is...

I have been married to my wonderful husband, KJ, for 13 years now.  We have a great Siamese cat, Tiki (named after Tiki Barber-Retired Giants RB).  And, yes, I love football-Go Broncos!!!

I decided to type out my “official” bucket list.  Some of the items on the list are…

*Go skydiving
*Jog a mile without stopping
*Watch a live fight (boxing) in Vegas
*Perform a standup comedy act
*Go to Carnival in Rio de Janeiro
*Volunteer at a homeless shelter on Thanksgiving
*Memorize the symbols of all elements on the periodic *Pay for a random person's groceries
*Learn to belly dance
*Play one $500 hand of blackjack
*Come up with my own personal theme song
*Jump into a pool in an evening gown and stilettos

I joined poetry soup because I love poetry and I also had a goal (on my list) to win at least 3rd place in a poetry contest.  Thanks to Paula Swanson, I was able to cross that one off with a 1st Place win in her Yard Sale Contest.  I decided that since the poetrysoup gang is so warmhearted, I wanted to hang out here for good :)

Edited...Which is True…Is it #1 or #2? Updated w/ answer :)

Blog Posted:11/2/2011 5:05:00 PM

One of these is true…you tell me which you think is TRUE…

1.  I just picked up my personalized license plates from the DMV that read “PRETTYN” to go on my 1959 Pink Rambler to pay tribute to the classic film…Pretty in Pink

2.  I was on national tv today for the second time

Thank you all who participated in my little bit of fun.  Those of you who guessed #2 were right!!!  I did have a '59 pink Rambler w/ personalized plates PRETTN for seven years but had to sell it when I moved to CA.  Loved it and hope to get another someday!

***I am working on getting the video ready for you guys to show you my apperance.  My first appearance was just a couple seconds on the Food Network showing me eating a TCBY yogurt for a special segment on yogurt.  I will post my CBS debut a little later in a new blog.  Please tell me what you think!

I could so picture you with that car ;) how I hope I'm right, heehee..if not that's ok too :) either way, those are good highlights of your day-- shucks or could it be #2?? hmmmm ok, ok 1...I'm sticking with 1 ;)

    I am inclined to think the first one.. u seem like a pretty in pink kinda gal..but u could also drive to the TV station to be on TV in the car.. I have specialized plates myself so know what u mean luv..

    Chris you can't guess both-LOL! Cecil...too funny, I wanted to be a news broadcaster all through high school...then I went to a college that didn't have that program thinking I would transfer...but then I fell in love w/ that college and stayed all four years. I probably would have been good though :) But you could be right...we'll see...

    I guess both possibilities could be true? But a pink Rambler? I am going with #2, Natalie.

    Andrea-A lavender car would be awesome!!! Sounds like you really have good taste. As for if you are right or not...we will see...:)

    Natalie,I'll guess the first one, just because I am a sucker for vanity plates and miss my Andie55. I have always wished for a lavender car but can't find one anywhere. Pink would be a third choice of mine after ice blue!
