    Are you married or do you have kids?
    Sadly, no, I am not married, I am still waiting for Justin
    Timberlake to ask!!! :)  I don't have any kids of my OWN but I do

    Family Members?
    My family is from Alexandria, MN but now we are spread all over! 
    I have two sisters; an older one, Mary, who works as a television sports reporter, my nephew Sam live in Lexington, KY, and my younger sister, JoAnn, works and lives in Melbourne, FL.  My parents live in Alexandria in the summer and
    winter in Homosassa, FL.
     
    What do you do for fun?
     I love working out, going out to dinner, movies, hanging out with my friends, traveling, music and shopping at Target!  I also bought my first house in October of 2008 so I am always busy with new home projects.
