Fun Facts

Where do I begin? Christmas is my favorite time of the year. My parents owned a Hallmark store, so I blame them for my need to over decorate at Christmas time. During the fall, you'll catch me watching a lot of football.  I'm a HUGE fan and love my Indianapolis Colts boys. In college I had the chance to cover some of the Colts games and sit in the press box. I even got to head in to the locker room after each game and conduct interviews. Dream come true for this girl!
