NunDespite being a Chicagoland native, I like ketchup on my hotdogs. Blasphemy, I know, but I blame it on going to grad school in the Deep South. After graduation, I returned to Chicago to be close to family and take advantage of all the city has to offer. Now, I am exploring other parts of the country doing travel therapy. I am always ready to dress up to hit the town, but am equally as happy in jeans and a T-shirt cheering on the Badgers. I love to cook and experiment with new recipes, but am not too proud to admit that I have the local pizza place on speed dial just in case. Although, since the move, I have to find my new back-up! I would choose the beach and flip flops any day over boots and mittens, and prefer a laid back bar to a late night club. I'm doing home therapy now, so hopefully that will help me learn my way around the area quickly, so I can spend my free time exploring and enjoying California. So far I have found the ocean and that has been plenty to keep me happy!
