About Me

My name is Connie. I am married (for the second time) to a wonderful man, Doug. I have 2 sons ages 9 and 11 and 2 stepdaughters ages 17 and 19. My 19 year old stepdaughter just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on June 23.

Favorite Music

I like just about any kind of music but for the past 3-4 years my favorite has been country. My favs are Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Sugarland, Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift, Reba, and many more.
For the past two years we have attended the CMA fest in Nashville, Tennessee, which is a lot of fun. Last year we all got to meet Taylor Swift! My boys were so excited.

That being said my all time favorite band is Led Zeppelin. My second would have to be Lynyrd Skynyrd (my husband's favorite). I was able to surprise him this year with a vacation on the Simpleman Cruise with Lynyrd Skynyrd on board. I like all types of classic rock.

I also like reggae-type music with steel drums, etc. The kind you hear on cruises.

My Hobbies

My hobbies include taking pictures, camping, letterboxing, scrapbooking, collecting EVERYTHING, and traveling. I love to collect souveniers from places I have traveled, especially, stickers, towels, magnets and pins. I love everything SANRIO (Hello Kitty) and kawaii. I also love to shop in the office supply aisle of any store. I usually buy more than enough stationery sets, cute paper, pens, pencils, and erasers.

Things I love

  1. Anything Sanrio or Kawaii. I just love anything cute.
  2. Harajuku
  3. Traveling (Anywhere-my bags are always packed)
  4. Girly movies (Sleepless in Seattle, Steel Magnolias, The Notebook, etc.)
  5. Souveniers (stickers, thimbles, magnets, pencils, pins-all the "cheesy" stuff, I love them!)
  6. Cute ribbon-I'm a sucker for spools of ribbon
  7. Travel stickers
  8. Sharpie markers, I always have one in my purse-you never know.
  9. Office Supplies, especially cute paper, colored staples, neat thumbtacks, shaped paperclips, cute sticky note pads, pencils, pens, etc.
  10. Decorated paper napkins (any kind) the kids like them when we are camping.
  11. Notecards with matching envelopes (stationary too)
  12. Different and unusual dish towels and oven mitts especially if they are souvenir ones from where you're from.
  13. Anything pink or pink and brown (my favorite color combo)
  14. Rubber Stamps and ink pads-especially cute tiny, mini stamps
  15. All scrapbooking supplies (I should own stock in Hobby Lobby and Michaels!)
  16. Lists, I love making lists, I drive everyone crazy with them.
  17. Camping-when we travel we usually camp everywhere we go-Oh, and hiking
  18. Letterboxing-this is so fun. If you have never done it you should try it. My kids love it.
  19. I love anything beach/tropical/tiki themed (tote bags, notepads, frames, washcloths, etc.)
  20. Cruises! They are awesome. I really like steel drum/cruise-type music.
  21. Miniatures-I love Hallmark mini ornaments, goebel, basically any type of miniatures to put on my mini shelf.
  22. Kenny Chesney ( I got to see him for the first time this year)
  23. Anything Skynyrd for the hubby.
  24. Sour Patch Kids and taffy are the greatest.
  25. Unopened packs of ball cards (baseball, basketball, or football) for my son.
  26. I love wax seals and different colored waxes.
  27. I love Dymo tape-you know the colored tape that you put in the label machines to emboss letters on.

Favorite Television

My favorite current tv show is Gossip Girl.
What can I say, I'm addicted. I usually watch American Idol when it's on. I like any type of forensic show (Forensic Files, First 48, City Confidential, etc.). I also love any Samantha Brown travel show (she's the greatest). Other than these I usually have my TV on GAC.

Things I'm not so crazy about

  1. Anything floral scented (I'm a spice person)
  2. Jewelry ( I don't wear much)
  3. Potpourri-I never know what to do with it. I do like handmade sachets though.
  4. Black licorice or any type of jelly beans
  5. Sci-Fi movies (my only uncommon thing with my husband).
  6. Rap music (I guess I just never learned to appreciate it)
  7. Lemon flavor (unless it's a drink)
  8. Real people/animal stickers, paper, etc. I like the animated ones.
  9. Please do not send anything with smoke smell or animal hair (I'm allergic)


Other than any of the items I listed in the Things I Love section these are some of the things I'd like to receive:

  1. Sticker flakes, especially the plastic ones even if it's just a few.
  2. Liquid Lip Smacker Lip Gloss-any flavor
  3. Mixed CD of island style music (Jack Johnson, Kenny Chesney, etc.)
  4. I would love a momiji doll. I have one but would like a couple more.
  5. Anything kawaii or cute.

Comment: Connie! I never got anything! And I tried to message you but you never messaged me back! If you choose to send, then I'll be happy to remove the bad rating. It's just irritating that you never even responded.
Comment: I'm sorry but i must get you 1, cause i didn't received anything. I have tried contacting you too, but no answer. Of course i will change my rating if something ever arrives. Your swap is just arrived finally. I like it very much, thanks a lot. Kisses Chiara
Comment: Thanks so much for the pretty stocking. I only had a chance to see the lovely green hand made bracelets that fell out of it. I really like them. I am going to wait until Christmas to open it up and look at everything. It's hard to do but I will wait until then. I hope you have a very Wonderful Holiday !

Hello, I came across your profile and just had to leave a comment. It appears we have a lot in common because I am also married to a wonderful man named Doug and we are also a letterboxing couple. Funny that you attend the CMA fest in Nashville because we do from time to time. I can't say that is the reason I go because I travel with my friends/ husband and I take photos everywhere in Nashville while they are doing their thing. Funny that you mention you shop the office section of any store you go in because I am the same way. Great reading through your profile.

Thanks so much for the computer writing paper from my WishList. I'll keep the seashells for next summer along with some stickers I have, and I'll love using the Van Gogh right away.
