1. My favorite flowers are peonies & sunflowers

2. I went to school SIX days a week. My parents sent me to Ukrainian school in Maryland every Saturday where I learned how to read, write and speak Ukrainian.

4. I have three dogs. A mini Australian Shepherd - Cocoa. An English Mastiff - Bear, and we just rescued a standard Australian Shepherd - Bella.

5. I could live off of ham and pineapple pizza for the rest of my life. Salty & sweet for the WIN!

6. I have to sleep with a sound app, in the dark and a REALLY cold room. Plus, heavy blankets.

7. I have a fear of drowning and heights. I would love to try scuba diving...but that would mean getting over a major fear.

8. I don't eat any seafood. Never have. There's something about it that just totally turns me off.

9. I love to travel! I have been to Italy, England, France, Switzerland, Bahamas, St. Martin, Mexico, Turks & Caicos, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Barbados...and there are several other places that I would LOVE to go to & are on my bucket list!

10. I am obsessed with Taylor Swift. I have met her twice & she is incredibly kind. She is an amazing performer too!

13. I have hundreds upon hundreds of lipsticks, lip glosses.

17. If I wasn't in radio I would be a private investigator. I love crime shows & I am able to dig up information when needed.

20. My favorite holiday is Christmas. I love decorating...I go all out for fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

21. Hand written cards, notes are more meaningful to me than a gift that was purchased. I keep all my hand written cards & notes.
