Hi! I'm Michelle from the great Pacific Northwest.
I live with my boyfriend and our furry ones, 4 lionhead rabbits: Aro, Shmi, Vader & Ginny.
origin of my name: CHOWEFACE came from my baby sister. When she was small, she couldn't say michelle so it came out as "me-chow" which eventually just turned to 'chowe' (she added the E on the end). My other siblings picked up on it and basically nicknamed a nickname by adding 'face' to it but they ususally just call me Chowe.
I geek out with a lot of things, especially Harry Potter. I'm a Slytherin & Pukwudgie according to Pottermore :)
I've had the chance to meet the stars of Supernatural and that was amazzzing! Jensen Ackles is a dreamboat!
Hobbies: reading, watching tv, hiking, pub trivia, amateur spelunking, sightseeing (road trips), scrapbooking, cooking, eating (I'm a foodie) & of course, postcrossing.
Love Sports- here are my favorite teams:
I watch the Olympics too. I love watching Winter Olympics more- love ski jumping, curling, hockey & figure skating! Team USA!
Seattle's getting an NHL team! So excited!
HUGE MOVIE WATCHER so this is going to be a long section.. I watch a lot of random stuff, all genres. I like a lot of bro movies but also will watch those tearjerkers, I ALWAYS tear up for war movies and movies where an animal dies- even if it's a CGI or fake alien animal!
I absolutely love Scott Pilgrim vs The World & Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I could watch those 2 anytime.
I really enjoy watching Tropic Thunder, that movie cracks me up and I love everyone in it. So bad but so good.
I watch all the Disney/Pixar movies and know most songs. I love the music in Moana.
-anything from Edgar Wright! (love the Cornetto Trilogy!)
The Broken Lizard gang is pretty funny too. I watch Beerfest all the time even though I'm not a big beer drinker.
I'm a HUGE Marvel fan so I watch all those superhero movies. Marvel is better of course.
I LOVE the 3 Chris's - Thor (Hemsworth), Captain America (Evans) & Starlord (Pratt).
I also watch foreign films. I understand Tagalog so I watch a lot of Filipino films. I also watch Korean ones (with subtitles) - Train to Busan is really good!
Classic Favs: Abbott & Costello meet Frankenstein, Casablanca, SIngin' in the Rain
I love Scooby Doo and watch all the cartoon movies for it.
I'm also guilty of watching those Lifetime/Hallmark Christmas movies during the holidays. The cheesier, the better!
Can't end this list without mentioning some of my favorite sagas - HP, Star Wars and LOTR! I have lots of movie marathons with those movies.
I am currently doing the POPSUGAR READING CHALLENGE! Books Read: 18/40
HARRY POTTER! (I reread them a lot)
anything by James Rollins (met him once!) and anything by J.T. Ellison. I also enjoy Philippa Gregory novels (Tudor & Plantagenet).
Big fan of dystopian & YA. I also read war memoirs and celebrity biographies/memoirs/essays.
My favorite genre to read is Thriller/Mystery.
The books I read a lot when I was younger was 'Holes' and "Awake & Dreaming" so those are personal favorites.
I watch too much TV. I love my DVR and my DirecTV & Netflix.
Fav show of all time is I Love Lucy.
Ones I watch currently on air: Supernatural, Rick & Morty, Sweetbitter, iZombie, Younger, UnReal, Game of Thrones, Outlander, American Gods, Westworld, Timeless, Animal Kingdom, Hawaii Five-O, Bob's Burgers, Bull, Atlanta, Silicon Valley
I don't really care for medical shows.
My BF and I watch a lot of NatGeo & Animal Planet. We love the Planet Earth series.
I usually watch food travel shows too, like Bizarre Foods.
I watch almost everything on Food Network. Sunny Anderson should be my bff, I love watching her.
I know it's cheesy but I've been watching The Challenge series on MTV since 2003 & I love it & the drama. (always Team CT)
My favorite genre is bluegrass/country and folk/Americana.
I also listen to a lot of classic rock, mo-town, rap/trap, musicals & boy bands- BSB for life!
basically, I listen to all music except screamo.
I'm not really picky, I like most cards and have a wide variety in my collection but I enjoy tourist cards the most. I like seeing different places around the globe.

I'll also take Washington cards, even though I live here. I have a special box for all WA cards :)
Cards I don't care for:
I do a lot of the Scavenger Hunts and swaps involving multiple cards in an envie so here's a list to make it easier for people sending me cards:

I also collect Postallove Greetings From but I have most of those already :)
I don't need any scrapbook papers, I actually give away what I have since I don't use them.
You do not need to send any tea either. Or chocolates, or anything of the kind- postcards are perfectly fine.
I do collect pressed pennies. If you're willing to send one, I'd appreciate it!
