712 in the house! I grew up in Iowa, just south of Sioux City. I went to High School at SB-L, Sergeant Bluff-Luton for those of you who aren't in the know. I went to college at Morningside College. As far as music goes, I really do like a little bit of everything, but my most favorite is cheesy pop, especially of the boy band variety. I was broken hearted when Justin Timberlake got married and then devastated when the same happened to Nick Carter. However, I’m still holding out for Jonathan Taylor Thomas. My other favorite things include chocolate, tap dancing, brunch, Harry Potter, napping, collecting useless pop culture knowledge, not wearing pants, and giving Andy a hard time on the radio!
