Annie was born and raised in Northwest Indiana with her younger sister and parents in Hammond. After spending some time out of the area chasing the radio dream she has moved back to start a family with her two main men: Jager the mutt and fiance Rob. When she is not on the air Annie enjoys cheering her favorite Chicago sports teams (Da Bears, Da Bulls, And Da Sox), hiking, and exploring new fairs and festivals! (Anything Deep Fried she's in!) Annie cannot wait to share her life with you on air and is excited to be back in the Region doing what she loves!
Is it too late to just runaway?
That is the question I keep asking myself!!! Not from marrying Rob, but from the whole wedding planning process!!! This is why we wanted to just runaway and get married!!!
Somehow the small guest list that Rob and I came up with has grown by bunches!!! If you've planned a wedding you know how quickly it can get outta hand!!! Well we have officially hit OUTTAHAND!!! If I have one more person assuming they are invited to this wedding I may scream! What's worse is when people get angry when they find out they are NOT on the guest list! I'm sorry but if you do not speak to me or Rob on a regular basis, you are not coming! We have enough “family” that fits that bill!!!
What's worse is this guest list stress has led to me picking fights with Rob! Spent all day yesterday battling it out!!! And I'm horrible at apologizing!!! Grrr!!! Guess that's something else I need to work on... just breathe...
Did you have these problems?!?! Maybe you are having them now? I don't want to seem ungrateful, just stressed ya know?!?!
The Razzie Nominations are out and Twlight is the leader will 10 nominations!!! (Check Out Full List Here)
On the other hand, The Oscar Nominations were announced this morning and once again I haven't seen ANY of the movies!! (Check Out Full List Here)
I gave myself this pep talk as I rolled outta bed Monday morning:
“Move Over Lazy And Unfocused Annie... List Made, Deadline Feb 1st. Consider This A Friendly Warning.”
Time to get back on track in the new year! It's Only Taken 2 Months, But Wedding/House Planning Is About To Get Blown Outta Here!!! Do you ever catch yourself doing this Sometimes, I just need a good smack to get back in action! I'll be the first to admit, I have completely ignored wedding planning since November! House hunting just took a lot longer than expected!
Anyway, started getting things crossed off the list already this week:
- Met with our baker... cake is squared away.
- Blocked out rooms at a hotel for the wedding guests.
- Homeowner's insurance signed on the dotted line.
- Joined The Y to get into wedding shape.
- Made wedding shower invites.
- Started wedding website.
And that is only in day one... imagine where the rest of the month will take me! I'll make sure to keep ya posted!
2012... what a year!
I started the year frustrated. Felt trapped in my job, sick of being so far away from home, tired of arguing over distance with Rob... then 2012 held so many great surprises. Got engaged, a month later got this position, and then moved back in with my parents! Now Rob and I are starting 2013 with our very own home and getting ready to begin our lives as one June 1st! More proof that life has a funny way of working itself out with a little good luck and a lot of hard work!
As we end the year, just wanted to say thank you for welcoming me to The Z this year. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the emails and phonecalls! I feel like you are part of my extended family and cannot wait to share everything 2013 will bring. Have fun tonight and stay safe!!!
Remember at the stroke of midnight comes a brand new beginning... you can be anything in 2013!!! (Hey I Know I'm Corny!)
