This is going to be difficult! I obviously like everything to do with Fashion, so I'll leave that one out to try and make it more of a challenge for myself. Please note these are in no particular order.


Taking care of my body
I really enjoy doing my best to make sure Jason (my husband) and I eat healthy. We do our grocery shopping at Fresh and Easy, a place where they sell foods that are organic, have no preservatives or artificial flavors, etc. We also like going to the gym as often as we can throughout the week.

Frozen Yogurt
I am quite obsessed with frozen yogurt. My favorite place to get yogurt is Golden Spoon. They have incredible flavors there and they get new ones every month. It's extremely delicious!

I laugh all the time. I have so many different kinds of laughs, it's ridiculous. Most of the time I end up squeaking or just plain bursting into laughter! This may seem odd, but I think it's hilariously funny to fake a laugh because every single time I end up laughing super hard! Try it!

Graphic Design
I love making different kinds of graphics in Adobe Photoshop. It's probably my favorite computer program. I have used my skills to create many different websites, logos, icons, and other creative designs. You can find some of what I mentioned at my graphics website, Upon a Sparkle.

I love all things girly, and most of the time those things come in the lovely shade of pink. It's so feminine, fun and happy. I'll always love it.

I'm such a huge Disney Fan. I grew up watching all of the movies. My favorite is Beauty and the Beast. I saw it for the first time at the El Capitan theatre in Hollywood. I was also Belle twice for Halloween, and I have many different kinds of Belle dolls.

My husband and I both obsess over good movies. We have about 300 movies, maybe more, and they are all alphabatized. There's even a special spot for my Chick Flicks! The Star Wars movies are my absolute favorite. For those of you who didn't know, Jason and I met in line for the midnight show of Attack of the Clones in 2002. I also have a Star Wars fansite, Anakin And His Angel, for those who may be interested.

Ever since I was little I have loved singing and dancing to music. I enjoy listening to many different genres of music, including pop, rock, rap, movie scores, etc. Working with teens has greatly expanded my tastes over the years too. Can you picture me enjoying hardcore bands or even techno? I thought not.

I've never taken any classes but I have a decent camera and some friends who are photographers. I've learned a lot from them and the various experiences with my camera. I've thought about becoming a Photographer before but I didn't want it to turn into something I had to do. I really enjoy capturing memorable moments, anything beautiful or interesting, and photos of people.

The Beach
I really enjoy going to the beach. It's so peaceful and I love it because it's a place that is more un-touched by man than other places where I live. I think God's creations are just incredible, and I can't help but admire a place like the beach. I'm not a fan of the ocean but I love walking beside it. The smell of the beach, eating smores, and watching the sun set are some of my favorite things about it.
