25 Things about me.
1. I don’t like coffee – I only drink tea.
2. I really, really dislike winter.

4. I enjoy cooking and my favorite kitchen tool is my 10 inch chef’s knife.

6. I actually like my job but not most of the crap that goes along with it.
7. I am a gadget geek girl and need to have all the cool stuff.
8. In 2007 I lost 65 pounds by eating healthy and exercising.
9. I want to loose another 15 pounds, then I’m done!

11. Speaking of running, I ran my first marathon in NY on Nov. 7, 2010.

21. I’m a huge opera fan and love cabaret but you will find some cheesy pop songs on my running playlist.
