My favorite sports are basketball, baseball, football, and tennis. My favorite team bar none is the St. Louis Cardinals. I love TV way too much! A partial list of my favorite shows would include The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, American Horror Story, Downton Abbey, Scandal, Mystery Science Theater 3000, House of Cards, Face Off, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, you get the idea. My music taste is varied, I like k.d. lang, Lady GaGa, Reba, Dolly, Loretta, Old Crow Medicine Show, Ryan Adams, Alabama Shakes, John Prine, Madonna, Radiohead, and lots more. My hobbies include reading, writing, blogging and spending time with my niece Zoey.
