On My Mind

I listen to club music when I edit photos...it's the Jersey in me.
I believe nobody loves me more than my dog.
I usually order a slice of pizza and a large side of regret on Thursday evenings.
I love my laptop...I call her my conjoined twin.
More often than not my humor is inappropriate and this makes me smile.
Email is my love language.
I not-so-secretly think I'm my parents' favorite child.
I wear too much jewelry.
I believe my husband is attracted my version of crazy.
I'm scared of the dark.
I'm addicted to ordering books from Amazon.com.
I sleep on flat pillows.
I dance every day in my office. Every. Single. Day.
I'd rather be the worst of the best than the best of the worst.
I put on too much face lotion when I go to bed.
One day I'll make a frittata or quiche and call myself Mrs. Fancy Pants.
I bruise easily.
I'm a little bit scared all of the time, which makes me think I'm doing something right.
