About me

Industry Education
Occupation Admin. Assistant
Location Bay Area, CA, United States
Introduction In 2008, I left my job of 12 years at De Anza College. I'm hoping to go back to school and pursue my Nursing degree. For now, I'm working p/t (weekends) in childcare and looking for another p/t job that will allow me to help with my mom and attend classes that will start in Fall. As for the job, I'll let you know in a few years when I find one.
Interests Family, gardening, reading, cooking, TiVo, animals, nature, traveling, movies, trying new restaurants, kids and babies :)
Favorite Movies Wow....so many! Classics: The Sound of Music. Lots of 80's movies from my teenager-hood: Sixteen Candles, etc.; Most any black and white/old movies!: The Egg and I, It Happened One Night, Life with Father, Cheaper By the Dozen (the ORIGINAL- not the newer one); ANYTHING Jane Austen or PBS/British miniseries: Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth is my FAVE!! ANY Doris Day movie. (My pic on my blog was taken from her pet-friendly hotel in Carmel, CA. They have her old movie posters framed all over the place!)
Favorite Music I'm now officially old. I don't listen to much new stuff, I'm sorry to say :( So my faves are all reminiscent of my youth! So basically, that's just about any of the 80's or 90's hairbands! Some other fave artists: Phil Collins/Genesis, Bette Midler, John Denver. But I also love nature CDs, classical and religious, such as the Mormon Tab. Choir.
Favorite Books Little Women, ALL the Little House books, Jane Austen books, most all of Amy Tan books. And I LOVE to "read" cook books! I know- weird- but I love them and I collect them. BEST ONE? By far: "America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook." The ONLY one you'll ever need!
