My favorite things in life are laughing, watermelon margaritas and winning contests. I blame my parents for my love of radio and YouTube. They used to video me doing everything including passing out pizza slices to my older brothers and sister, and hosting talk shows in my living room. Half of my closet is filled with Chicago sports shirts even though I don't understand all the rules. Someday, I want to write an autobiography and title it "Cardio & Cupcakes" or "Rebellious Librarian." I love being an aunt to all six of my nieces and nephews, even though they think I'm still a kid. The best part of my day is when I get to blast Britney, Spice Girls or Whitney Houston during the Retro Lunch at Noon! Give me a call, I will play your favorite retro songs too.
