I have many interests -- I would have named this section "about me" but really, the whole site is about me.  So here I narrow down what I like to do and things like that.

Braces!  I finally took the plunge and got braces.  My lower teeth were too crowded for my mouth, and I needed to have something done before I got gum disease and my teeth fell out.  17 months in braces... now I have straight teeth! Check out my braces page!

Hobbies: reading, photography, scrapbooking, cooking, crocheting.

Crocheting is my new hobby.  I've made many, MANY scarves, and I even tried to make a few baby blankets.  Here are some pictures of blankets that I've finished.

I'm a television junkie.  I admit it.  My husband and I bought a TiVo and our lives have never been the same.  I was a HUGE Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel addict, but alas, they're gone. Some of my favorites are Lost, Veronica Mars, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Battlestar Galactica, Smallville, The Amazing Race, Survivor, and Heroes. Thank goodness for TiVo! 

The Great Outdoors:  I like to get out and do things - as long as I don't sweat too much!  I suppose warm months are my favorite times of the year because then I can hike, canoe, swim, camp, rollerblade and ride my bike.  Read about our trip to the Boundary Waters!  And read about our trip to Rocky Mountain National Park!
