My name is Abbi, and I was born and rasied in Los Angeles, CA. I just moved to Charlotte for work, and am looking forward to getting out there and meeting new people!
I'm funny, witty, easygoing, generous, kind and caring. I am close with my family, which is small (mom, dad and brother), and count myself lucky to have a few very close friends.
I love going to the movies, exploring new neighborhoods, having brunch, trying new recipes, seeing musicals on stage, entertaining, travel and (embarassingly) watching E! on TV.
As I said above, I was born and raised in Southern California. What does that mean, exactly? Well, I have what you might call a "valley girl" accent (think 80s movies i.e. Fast Times at Ridgemont High) and I know how to drive aggressively if need be (however, from what I've found, drivers in Charlotte are much more polite!). I am not, however, super-tan nor bleach-blonde.
Aside from LA, I did live in London for two and a half years while earning my graduate degree. Grey skies and constant rain notwithstanding, I had a good time there and made a lot of very good friends.
Last year, I officiated my best friend's wedding, which was a lot of fun. I had to get ordained online, and enjoyed forwarding the email confirming me as a minister to my Jewish friends and family members.
My favorite movies are Sunset Boulevard, Goodfellas and The Holiday. Fave tunes (currently) include those by Adele, Florence and the Machine and John Mayer. And as far as TV goes, I'm not a big fan of reality although I'm somewhat ashamed to say that I have developed a soft spot for the Kardashians. Those crazy gals aside, I'm also into: 30 Rock, American Horror Story, True Blood, Mad Men, Downton Abbey, Modern Family, Revenge and Glee.
And some other random things that I like/enjoy: Frozen yogurt outlet shopping sarcasm broken-in Chuck Taylors being a hostess Indian food Scrabble comfy chairs striped socks iced coffee putting photos in albums writing letters wandering through Target movie theaters Broadway showtunes Halloween costumes scented candles travel pictures pedicures hiking and farmers markets.
I will also tell you that I can be cheesy, dorky and pretty sarcastic at times. I like to joke around, and I hope you do too!
