Favorite Music

I am still listening to the same music I grew up with...oldies but still the best! I am a huge Rod Stewart fan and have seen him up close and personal in concert four times. I also love Journey, Josh Groban, Elton John, Neil Diamond,Stevie Nicks,Keith Urban,Tom Petty, Bob Seger, Bryan Adams, Celine Dion, Tina Turner, Laura Branigan, Abba, and am still an Osmond fan at heart!

Favorite Books

Reading is my passion! I adore it and would have my nose stuck in a book all day long if I could! Not only do I enjoy reading the old fashioned way...I also love listening to audio books. My favorite authors are Nora Roberts, J.A.Jance, Stuart Woods,Laura Childs, Mary Higgins Clark, Carol Higgins Clark, Leslie Meier, Debbie Macomber, Stephen King,Kate Collins, Sue Grafton, Janet Evonovich, James Patterson, Christine Feehan, Carolyn Keene,Robyn Carr, Sherryl Woods,Marilyn Ross and much more. Some of my very favorite books are the "cozy" mysteries!

Favorite Television

I'm not a huge TV fan but I am loyal to some shows. I have been watching "General Hospital" for over 40 years now.and have been fortunate to meet many of the cast members. I also really enjoy The Good Doctor, Bob Hearts Abishola, FBI, Last Man Standing, Big Sky, The Connors, The Rookie, Greyโ€™s Anatomy, and Supernatural I just started watching Chicago Fire from the beginning and am absolutely hooked! I plan on watching Chicago PD and Chicago Med too!I I still love watching the older shows as well and some of my favorites are: The Golden Girls, Bewitched, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Murder She Wrote, Charmed, Everybody Loves Raymond, Ghost Whisperer, The King of Queens, Diagnosis Murder, CSI, Friends, Emergency and Dark Shadows.


I love magazines, especially all the ones geared at women. I'm always buying one here and there and my favorites are Woman's Day, Family Circle, Ladies Home Journal, Taste of Home, Good Housekeeping, Redbook, Woman's World, First, People, Oprah, All You, Redbook,Dr. Oz, Soap Opera Digest and alot of the cooking magazines.

I am also a huge Halloween fan! My fascination began when I was just a kid and loved dressing up in costume and going through the neighborhood with my friends "trick or treating." When I grew up and got married, two of my kids were born in October...one on the 17th and another on the 30th...just 27 minutes away from midnight. When they were growing up we always had Halloween themed birthday parties! When my daughter turned 16 we had a "Sweet 16, Halloween" party for her and it was amazing! We decorate our house and yard with everything Halloween and we usually start in mid-August! I love the stickers, the stationery, the decorations, smells, colors and mood of Halloween!

Things I Like

Any kind of stationery - the old fashioned letter kind or computer stationery of any kind, lined stationery

Postcards of scenic things, especially state map post cards


Candles - spicy kind, not flowery

Anything Autumn or Halloween themed

Kawaii items

Souveniers from your state in exchange for something from my state.

Journals...any size, shape, color, texture, lined

Pretty or cute blank notecards

Anything dealing with Snoopy, Thomas Kinkade or Mary Engelbreit

Cat figurines or cat related items

Scrapbook supplies

Snowmen items


Disney items, especially those pertaining to Beauty and the Beast

Things I Dislike

Kiddie type stickers or stationery


Not a fan of washi tape


stamped images or small scraps of paper

My Hobbies

I love pen palling and have been at it for most of my life. I am always happy to make a new friend through the mail, and love writing and receiving long, chatty letters about everyday life!

I love reading with a passion Crocheting Journaling Creative writing Jigsaw puzzles - especially the Disney and lighthouse themed ones by Thomas Kinkade Yoga Diamond Art Postcards
