The 2nd name on the sign, depending on the day. Iâ€™m Canadian born, with a short stay in Kentucky where I started in the jewelry business, until fate brought me here. Life can really be amazing.
Guilty Pleasures: Online shoe shopping while drinking a glass of wine. I may not actually buy them, but those online shopping carts can get pretty full!
Ambitions: To travel and be on American Ninja Warrior (I may or may not be kidding).
Best Concert: U2 and the Rolling Stones. (It would have been Guns Nâ€™ Roses if I went â€“ sore subject).
Favorite Books: Any storyline that has to do with muurddeerrrrrr.
Favorite Movies: I donâ€™t watch a lot of movies, but two that I can watch on repeat is â€œLove Actuallyâ€ and â€œThe Grande Budapest Hotelâ€. Or anything with Will Ferrell, Robert Downey Jr, or Johnny Depp. I guess I like their quirky sense of humor. (The three of them should really make a movie together).
Favorite TV Show: Currentlyâ€¦anything with Jason Bateman. (Maybe by coincidence). Arrested Development and Ozarks.
Sports Played: I havenâ€™t played any organized teamsports in years â€“ but am one of those Crossfit fanatics that may drive other people nuts. (Ahem, Andy). I love to do anything outside â€“ kayaking, running, hiking, skiing, porch sitting.
Petâ€™s: Crash Bandicoot Koehn â€“ the most stubborn curmudgeon of a dog â€“ but heâ€™s awfully cute when he wants cheese.
Foods I crave: I really do love ALL food â€“ but lately itâ€™s the Chopped Salad from Krimmers (to die for), or Toshi Ramen. (Otherwise known as crack in a bowl).
People I Admire: Family. Between my immediate and extended family on my side and Andyâ€™s â€“ they are the freaking best. From teachers, construction and contractors, stay at home momâ€™s, small business owners, number crunchers and military â€“ they are the salt of the earth and would do anything to help another family member out. (And they are pretty hilarious as well).
Favorite Song to Sing: Iâ€™ll be (your crying shoulder) by Edwin McCain. (Only in the truck â€“ by myself).
Good First Date Idea: Skipping out on work conferences to walk the Vegas Strip and grab a beer with a complete stranger from Wisconsin. Wellâ€¦only if you want to end up marrying the guy! (Yes â€“ this is how I met Andy). Favorite Gemstone: Hands down â€“ diamonds. But I have fallen in love with the London Blue Topaz. The color is such a gorgeous deep shade of blue. (It goes perfectly with me favorite outfit, ripped jeans and cowboy boots).
Favorite Jewelry Brand: Hearts on Fire â€“ their back story is a every small business ownerâ€™s dream! Anna Beck Designs is definitely my favorite fun fashion line â€“ versatile with great designs you can build on.
Favorite Holiday: Long weekends. (Memorial Day, Labor Day). There is no pressure on cooking huge meals, and you donâ€™t have to worry about exchanging presents. (And Sunday Night family porch drinking is the best).
