Welcome! A Little Bit About Me...
Welcome to my weblog/online journal! This is a new adventure for me. I've been keeping a "practice" blog in Word for the past year or so, working up the courage to do this for real. So here it is. I have random thoughts on television (which, like most people, I watch way too much of), books (I love to read), sports and just about any thing else. Please send me an e-mail - I'd love to hear from you.

In case you were wondering, the title of my blog comes from the title of a Trisha Yearwood song. I consider this my "Ally McBeal soundtrack playing in my head" song. You can read the lyrics here.

Just a few basics about me:

  • My name is Andrea (pronounced like Gabrielle Carteris' character on "90210.") Of course, I've been pronouncing my name like that my whole life, way before that show was ever on the air.

  • I'm 31, married to Mark for 4 1/2 years, with a newborn daughter, Hayley (8 months).

  • I live in South Central PA, near the Mason-Dixon line, and I'm originally from Maryland.

  • I work in PR/Marketing for a manufacturing company. I hope to talk about things other than my job here.

  • I love TV and movies and will watch just about anything, although I'm not that into most of the "reality" shows.

  • I also love to read, voraciously. I didn't read a single book the entire 3 months I was on maternity leave (I barely had time to read the mail) and was going through major withdrawal. I was finally able to read again when I returned to work and could read on my lunch break. Favorite reading material includes mysteries & thrillers (especially legal thrillers), "chick lit," and Southern fiction (Anne Rivers Siddons is one of my all-time favorite authors).

  • I'm a big sports fan, including NFL (Baltimore Ravens & Washington Redskins), college basketball (Duke and Maryland - I know, that doesn't make much sense, but I'll have to explain another time) and NASCAR.

  • I'm an obsessive list maker, so I think this format will be great for me!

More to come soon!
