About Me

Here is a list of facts about me: (I thought this would be more interesting than the mini biography I started…)


  • I’m 1/2 Italian, 1/4 French, and 1/4 Irish
  • I have 1 brother who’s 5 1/2 years younger than me
  • I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area
  • I live in Sacramento now, and have been here since September 2006
  • I am pretty spiritual.  I am Catholic, and always will be
  • At the same time, I am fairly liberal, and have the same values my parents have for the most part
  • I went to Catholic school from Preschool through Fifth Grade, then public school after that
  • I used to be incredibly shy and painfully insecure
  • I only realized that I wasn’t once I started working at my first job up here in Sacramento at Curves
  • My dad passed away from Acute Leukemia on December 30th, 2009 at 64 years old
  • I realized only after my dad passed away how much I really am like him
  • I would give anything to have spent more time with him, but I do know he’s watching over me
  • I believe everything happens for a reason. EVERYTHING. Even if I don’t know the reason why
  • I live with my iPod almost litterally glued to my hip, I’m that obsessed with music


  • Color- Purple (really I like all colors, but that’s my favorite)
  • Movie- Return to Me (I must have seen this movie at least 100 times. LOVE this movie!)
  • Disney Character- Tinker Belle
  • Sound- Baby giggles!
  • Smell- Lavender
  • Holiday- Christmas, then St. Patrick’s Day in a close second
  • Season- Fall, and Summer


  • I love to cook, and I’m pretty good at it considering that I’ve been working on it since I was 15.
  • I love to laugh, and truly find humor in just about everything.
  • I am a Disneyland Fanatic.  I mean absolute Disney Dork!  Ask anyone that knows me!  🙂
  • My favorite movie genre is comedy.  As mentioned above, I love to laugh!
  • I like to crochet and knit.  I am currently working on a big blanket with a new crochet pattern I have never tried.
  • I like taking photographs of interesting things.  I would like to become a better photographer with my point and shoot camera.


  • I don’t like mean people, or fake people for that matter…
  • I don’t like when I get road rage, which unfortunately, someone always pisses me off when I’m on the road, even just driving to and from work on my 5 mile commute…
  • I hate intense, depressing, and just plain down movies.  And ending can make or break a movie for me too.  It, in turn, makes me depressed.
  • I hate raw tomatoes (except in salsa), and I mean HATE.
  • I hate the smell of beets, so I’m sure I wouldn’t like to eat them either!

Places I’ve Been

  • San Francisco (duh, I grew up there!)
  • Napa and Sonoma Valley (many many times, and we have family history there)
  • Lake Tahoe
  • Disneyland
  • San Diego
  • France- Lourdes 1 week and La Rochelle 1 week
  • Yosemite
  • Walt Disney World
  • Nassau and Castaway Cay, Bahamas

Places I Want to Go To

  • Ireland (I don’t care where, I just want to go!)
  • Italy (All over Italy)
  • The UK
  • Canada
  • Spain
  • Paris (Didn’t get to see it!)
  • New England
  • Washington D.C.
  • Washington State (may happen soon!)
  • Oregon
  • Germany
  • Disneyland Paris
  • Antarctica (I know weird, but I saw that you can take a cruise there, and that would be so cool, literally! and it’s roughly $10,000 a person I believe so that may never happen!)

      So sorry for your loss! It’s always hard losing a parent especially to cancer. Glad you found my blog! I have a Disney blog too that I link to a lot so check it out if you see me writing about it! Will be writing soon about my recent trip and linking to it.
