Some Random Facts:
First of all, I'm not 37, I'm 40 (can't seem to change it)
I’ve lived in the North, South, East, and West of the U.S. in that order.
I love gardening and cooking and find that I seek them out when I need to relax and zone out.
I like to get really dressed-up occasionally for somethin’ really fun.
I am an equal opportunity dog lover; I have owned one of the largest breeds and one of the smallest breeds and many breeds in between.
Regardless of how early I have to get up for work or flights, I must shower, even if it means scooping water out of a bucket in an orphanage, or splashing from a tiny tap in a far away land.
I had a zip line at my house growing up that I tried to attach a wood crate to so that I could sit and zip. It broke immediately upon testing and I seriously busted tail on the ground. Luckily it’s a well padded tail.
I rented a crewed catamaran for a day of sailing leisure in the Gulf of Thailand. My best friend and I fished and caught some tiny fish that the crew cleaned and we ate raw. Yum!!
When I was in high school, I had a rider lawnmower. I had to do work around the house (work ethic, and all…) but I would mow in my self-tie-dyed orange and yellow boxer shorts, black tank, and black barn boots. I know, HOT!! ;)
I have traveled to Europe several times, twice by myself.
In high school, I wore a fake earring disguised under my hair for as long as it took my mom to notice and ask about it (in horror, I might add). I pulled it off, showed her it was fake and the next day had it pierced with a real version of the same earring. I was such a rebel!!! ;)
I used to host wine club. I would pick a country and make the cuisine for my 8-12 girlfriends. The last few bottles didn’t get as much educational attention...
Red wine: earthy, barnyard-stinky, and leathery, please. Hard to find; not gonna lie…
I'm a short 5’9’’, but a tall 5’8”. In heels, I am 6’0.
I dread sifting through a cooler full of icy water for my bev of choice, Coke. Weird, I know. The cooler part, not the Coke.
and yet, I once polar plunged on a dare. Dares are dangerous territory for me…
Speaking of ice, I like it cold when I sleep and I love fresh clean crispy sheets.
I’ve witnessed White Nights in St. Petersburg.
Martini? Vodka, please.
I like wind.
I like spoons.
Next vacation: Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Never lived in Phoenix
Duct Tape: great for injuries of the sliced open variety, as it turns out.
I definitely need my alone time and time out with friends, but I also like to spend a good amount of time with the man I am seeing. It is important to me to have a healthy balance in that department.
Most complimented body parts: Nose and Feet
Most stand out physical features on me: My Freckles and Red Hair (containing multiple colors)
I finally conquered my distaste for olives this past month!! I don’t like saying, “I don’t like…”.
2 Bucket List Items of Interest: Super Car Racing Experience and Cage Swimming with Sharks
Must Love Laughing
I am typically best matched with an alpha male.
Margaritas: Spicy, but no salt, and on the rocks, please.
A favorite activity is drinking wine and cooking a tasty dinner with my man.
Sun = Happy
I adore someone who can totally dork out on occasion!! I certainly know I can.
On a more serious note, I am seeking a kind, balanced, and intelligent man who can communicate and relate honestly and fairly. I want a healthy loving straight-forward relationship without drama; there is enough of that in life already.
Things I am looking to explore further: rock climbing, archery, cooking classes, more Houston, dance classes, boxing, Dynamo games (went to my first one last week; so fun!!), getting my wine club started here in Houston.
