I’m just a Mom, trying to stay sane while juggling more balls than I can usually handle.  Which isn’t many.  Because I never learned how to juggle!

I love living in Eastern North Carolina.  When I’m not at V103.3, you can usually find me on the water with the family and friends, on the course throwing a disc (badly), playing with clay, pouring paint, or scouring “junk” shops for treasures!  I have way too many cool “projects” waiting to be started when I have time!

Here’s my latest paint pour.  It’s a fish.  I know, I’ve heard it all from my husband and my kid…but I still love it!

I love my job.  It’s amazing to create partnerships with so many non-profits that make a difference in ENC every day, like The Food Bank, United Way, Fishstrong Foundation and The American Cancer Society.  And, what’s cooler than playing awesome music for you while you work and giving you the chance to win amazing gifts like Summer Road Trips, designer handbags, concert tickets and meet and greets.  And occasionally, I get to meet an artist!  I’ve been hugged by Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Shawn Hook and all the guys from Life Of Dillon.  And, I had a beer with Ed and Jess from Collective Soul!

I love Stephen King.  His books line a special bookcase in my living room.  I saw him in Wilmington at a special event once and stalked him in the parking lot afterwards.  Maybe I’ll get a bit part in one of his books one day!

I have a great story about Bob Seger from my life as a waitress in Northern Michigan, but it’s too long for this forum!  Ask me about it when we bump into each other the next time…if you haven’t heard it already!

My “Selfie” with Ed and Jess from Collective Soul!

How many…?

My husband and I took a road trip to Michigan recently for my family’s reunion.  My Mom had 10 siblings.  I have so many cousins I lost count.  They have kids.  My family is big.  And opinionated.  And fun.  We had a lovely time, but honestly, by the end of the three days, the joke…

Jennie

Our Beloved Rescue Jennie

The first dog I ever owned was a rescue from Pitt County Animal Shelter.  My son was 4.  We met Jennie at a pet adoption and she stole our hearts.  She was matted and messy and stinky.  Very stinky.  But she was so sweet.  She cuddled right up to my son and I.  They thought…

CRABS

‘Tis The Season!

One of our very favorite things to do in ENC is CRABBING!  OK, honestly, it’s probably MY favorite thing to do.  My husband would really rather be fishing.  But he tolerates my obsession with catching crab! Things are warming up and these delicious creatures are coming out! We scored some on Saturday despite the cool…

Enjoy The Sunshine! And The Rain!

Tomorrow, a different story.  A big chance of MORE RAIN!  Like we haven’t had enough in…

BARBIE HEAD

Stress-Relief Crafting!

My son and his girlfriend carried on and on about how I HAD to watch Dexter.  If you’ve ever watched it, you may remember the “Ice Truck Killer”.  Do you remember the Barbie Doll head he left on Dexter’s refrigerator?  That inspired my latest “stress-relief” craft! Now, the kids who watched Dexter, and carried on…
